There are no words to describe how much I love this jumpsuit - yes, it's a jumpsuit, not a maxi dress, which makes it even cooler, right? I ordered this piece on a whim, with fingers crossed, because let's be honest, ordering a jumpsuit online and thinking it'll fit is often not likely, but this one ended up fitting absolutely perfectly & was even more beautiful than I could have imagined in person.
While I am thrilled for the return of warm weather & beach days, heading to the beach in a bikini for the first time of the season can be daunting no matter your shape or size, especially after a long, food-filled, sweater-wearing winter. On the bright side, it also means tan skin, longer, more relaxing days & an excuse to buy new swimsuits that make you look & feel your best! Today I am sharing a few ways that help me to feel more confident when I am wearing my swimsuit...
Today I am sharing my Easter Sunday outfit (you may have already gotten a glimpse of it on Instagram if you follow me - & if you don't, what are you waiting for??)
Anyone else feel like Easter is always the official kick off to spring? It's the perfect holiday for wearing pastel colors & floral prints. This dress combines both & is one of my favorite dresses I've ever owned. After a winter full of dark colors, sweaters & jeans, it was so refreshing to step into such a light, girly dress.
Today I am so excited to share a look I wore on our first night in Barbados. The weekend prior to our trip, I started packing & realized I needed one more dress to bring. Looking through my closet, nothing seemed just right for the blue skies & bright sun that would be greeting me when I arrived in Barbados, so at the very last minute, I placed an order for this gorgeous cobalt blue maxi dress. I have never been more grateful for Shopbop's free 3 day shipping.
I am back from my trip & while I am so sad to have left Barbados - there is nothing like coming home to your own room & routine after some time away. I am so excited to start sharing my outfits from my trip, so let's jump right in today with an outfit that I wore to the airport. Travel looks should be a combination of comfortable & easy, but still put together. Continue reading for some of the best & worst pieces to wear at the airport.
I am SO excited to be working with American Eagle again this month to showcase some of their latest items for spring. American Eagle has been a long time favorite of mine - every single pair of their jeans seem to magically fit perfectly & in recent years, I have become a huge fan of their sweaters, dresses & everything in between.
When I saw this floral wind breaker, I knew it would be absolutely perfect for April showers & May flowers, but since we've had a few warmer days lately, I couldn't resist pulling it out a bit early.

I am in Barbados this week! I have been so excited to getaway from NY - I almost forgot what warm weather feels like! (Be sure to follow along on Instagram @michelle_orsi & Snapchat @michelle.orsi for the latest action) Believe it or not, I don't think I've ever taken a trip where I check my baggage. I am always somehow able to limit my packing to just one carry on suitcase & a large tote bag. Today, I'm sharing a few packing tips so you can do the same on your next trip!
By now, you have seen me wearing my Stan Smith sneakers with a ton of dressed down, easy looks (seen here & here), but the great part about this particular pair of sneakers is that they truly go with anything! One of the main words that I use to describe my style is 'casual,' so I love that it is now acceptable to wear a dress or skirt with sneakers - no more days of aching feet in high heels. The balance of a flirty dress or skirt with a pair of classic sneakers creates an unexpected & very cool combo - if I do say so myself.
How freaking awesome is this jacket!? As soon as I got it, I became obsessed with the rich shade & fun fringe detailing. However, it took me a while to figure out how to style it without looking like I was going to a costume party dressed as a cowgirl. By pairing this western inspired jacket with all black, I was able to take it from cowgirl to street style!
I remember circa 2003 when I got my first Juicy sweatsuit & my first pair of Birkenstock's for Christmas. I wore both on my first day back to school and thought I was the coolest thing ever. While leisurewear & Birkenstock's are both in style again, let me paint a picture of my look for you....a white terrycloth sweatshirt & pants with JUICY stamped across the back & bottom accessorized with my Birkenstock's...and socks! I cringe just thinking about that outfit, but the worst part for me was definitely the white athletic socks with my sandals.
Nowadays, adding socks to a pair of pumps or sandals can actually be pretty fun & quirky but it has to be done the right way. I've noticed socks and heels continue to be a huge trend in street style & on the runways and challenged myself to try it out. I opted for a very thin black sock with my bright red pumps.
When it comes to avoiding working out, I've come up with every excuse in the books..it takes too long to see a difference, I'm too tired, I'm too busy...The list goes on and on. But this year, I've really challenged myself to try to create a steady workout routine for myself, even if it's just for 15 minutes a day. Read on for my easy tips to help yourself get motivated to get moving!
When the official Pantone colorS for 2016 were announced, I was a bit unsure. Marsala the year prior was such a win & I wore it nonstop. Was I really going to do the same with Rose Quartz & Serenity shades? Turns out I like these colors more than I thought. When I looked in my closet, I realized I owned quite a few pieces of clothing and accessories in each of these pastels. Read on for 3 easy ways to style these shades.
Obsessing over SheIn's fabulous tunics - each one is loose & flowing & such a pretty pattern (see another SheIn tunic styled here). They all give me Free People tunic vibes but for a fraction of the price. This classic black & white one with very subtle hints of blue is my favorite one yet! With a braided updo, it creates a look that is boho perfection.
I am so excited to welcome in the month of March because in approximately two weeks, I will be on an airplane to Barbados for a vacation with my family! I think the week that my family goes on vacation might be my favorite week of the year - even better than Christmas!
Below are a few of the items that I've purchased or have my eye on for our trip!

Can we talk about what fabulous collaborations Target has? It's practically impossible to walk into Target and not walk out with something never knew you needed - especially when a great collab is going on. Recently, Target launched their latest clothing collaboration with WhoWhatWear - a line full of classics with a twist - and I am totally obsessed.
