Wanted to share a few shots I've been taking around the city lately as the weather (hopefully) switches over from Winter to Spring. NYC never ceases to surprise me with all it's beauty you can find in unsuspected places if you just take a second to stop and look around.

I named this post hoping that if I did so, wearing a coat for the very last time (or at least the very last blog post) would actually come true... I gotta say, I am a big coat lover. Huge. My collection is a little bit ridiculous. But for once in my life, I am so, so tired of wearing them. Repeatedly over the past couple weeks I've gone out with much less clothing on than I should have, and have ended up returning home freezing from work! Wishful thinking I guess you can say, but if NYC gets any more snow, I'm moving south! Anyway, enough of the complaining. 

I absolutely love this coat paired with the flare jeans. The fitted a-line look of it complements the jeans perfectly. A great little spring twist you can add to your coat is to either roll up or scrunch up the sleeves. Show off those bracelets that you've had in hiding all winter! Another spring coat I'm just lusting after (I know - I did just say I was tired of coats, didn't I!?), is this one from Aritzia. I tried it on in the store a month or so back, and am just waiting for it to go on sale! It's gorgeous, and the colors are just perfect for Spring!

Have you guys heard of Rocksbox yet!? Think of it like this: Birchbox for jewelry, except you don't get to permanently keep the jewelry (but you get great discounts if you want to buy), and you can return/exchange it as often as you'd like! When Rocksbox reached out to me to see if I'd like to try it, I was totally on board. What a fun concept! I've already been through three boxes and I'm loving it. So far I've had some gorgeous Margaret Elizabeth, Loren Hope and Gorjana pieces - three of my absolute favorite brands!

When you first sign up, you take a little quiz to determine what your style is to help your stylist pick out pieces that fit you. Then you can also scroll through some of the pieces and make a wish list of all the ones you'd like to have in your box. In every box, Rocksbox sends you three pieces of jewelry - and they have been pretty spot on with what I would normally pick out for myself.

As for cost, Rocksbox costs only $19 a month to have pretty much unlimited jewelry sent to you. You also get a $10 "shine spend" on any piece of jewelry that you decide to buy from your box, on top of the discounted prices.

And what's better is, Rocksbox is offering Casual Classic readers 1 month free when you use code casualclassicxoxo at checkout!
