Classic Spring Style + Social Media Detox.

I did something a little different (for me) this weekend. I stayed off social media! I did go on to Instagram a few times to post a few times (hey, it’s my job) but otherwise, I was blissfully off of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, all of it. It was a fun little experiment and felt really good.

Today’s post is in collaboration with Grana. Over the past year or so I’ve really fallen in love with this brand. They make the best basics using incredible fabrics – at really affordable prices. Their cashmere is particularly incredible (you can read more about that in the post I did with them here). It’s truly the best cashmere around, and it’s very affordable. (Everything is under $100, with the exception of the boyfriend cardigan, which is $109.) I’ve styled two different outfits around two of their new cashmere cardigans (classic + boyfriend). My favorite is probably the first look, pairing a silk dress with a slouchy boyfriend cardigan. To make the look feel a little more put together (both pieces are a little oversized) I belted the dress (under the cardigan, not over!)

Outfit #1: Grana Cashmere Boyfriend Cardigan (very oversized, I’m wearing a small here) // Grana Silk Racerback Trapeze Dress (this is such a great basic + it’s under $80 and comes in SO many colors) // J.Crew Belt (very old, similar) // Vince Solange Platform Heels // Clare V Leopard Clutch // Celine Sunglasses

Outfit #2: Grana Classic Cashmere Cardigan // Grana Loose Silk Tank // 7 for all Mankind Jeans // BaubleBar Charm Necklace // Vince Solange Platform Heels // Celine Sunglasses // Vintage Chanel Red Quilted Flap Bag

This camel cardigan is such a great silhouette and a nice length. A lot of times more classic cardigans are short on me (I am busty + have a long torso) so I really like this one.

As far as the social media detox goes, I said it above, but it was wonderful. It was a little hard during my usual check social media times (in a cab, in bed in the morning) but to be honest I felt really refreshed not looking at it. I also felt like it was easier to focus and concentrate on whatever else I was doing (conversation, taxes, writing). I was definitely a lot more productive. I am going to make more of an effort to unplug on the weekends and distance myself from Facebook, Twitter, et al… or to put my posts up and then put the phone away. This constant connectedness can’t be all that good for us.

    The first look seems so different from your other outfit posts and that’s what’s pulling me in. Such a great look on you!

    Loving all of these beautiful outfits! I need a social media detox too! It’s so beautiful outside, I’m trying to spend as much time away from technology and in the sun as possible 🙂

    Hi Grace! I love look #1. Can you share what size the dress is? I am thinking of pulling the trigger on a black one and I think we are about the same size. Thanks!!

      thanks Jill! and of course! I am wearing a size medium. To be honest I probably could have gone with a small, which is why I belted it… but I like the way it looks belted (and the small would have been to short to belt!) It is definitely cut a bit big but that also gives it the nice swingy shape. I hope you get it, it’s a great dress!!!
