If you don't know who the title is about, then you need to add in one more TV show to watch! April Ludgate is a character on NBC's "Parks and Recreation." The show itself is about a group of people who work in the Parks and Recreation committee in their local city council. That was a very quick summary but the show is great! It is one of the most hilarious shows playing on TV today with characters you can't help but love! More about the show to come soon in our 'Things We Love' section. Back to April...we absolutely love her style on the show! (All the ladies on Parks and Rec have impeccable style!) So cute, comfy, and casual yet perfect for office work. Below are some outfits inspired by her with pieces she regularly wears.
Cardigans are a staple in April Ludgate's closet! Paired with either a patterned blouse or graphic tee is the usual. Choose some bright colors, and don't be afraid to wear some colored jeans! Decide on a skirt? Try tucking the blouse in and adding a pair of tights to tie the outfit together!
These jackets April has been known to wear are more for that cooler fall weather. Try wearing them with a sweater underneath to stay warm.
This last section of outfits are just some miscellaneous ones that April has wore that we love! We adore the sweater and button up combo as well as denim/jean shirts. And don't forget the hoodie for those lazy days!

Have I been watching too much New Girl? Yes. Do I want Jess & Nick to be together? Yes. Am I obsessed with Jess's wardrobe? Yes.If you haven't ever seen the FOX TV show New Girl, you need to check it out ASAP (of course after you've finish exploring our blog). It's about a quirky but lovable teacher (Jess) who moves in with three guys after a breakup with her longtime boyfriend. She quickly turns their life upside down but manages to befriend her housemates, Winston (a former basketball player now producer of his own radio show); Schmidt (a metro-sexual-social-ladder-climbing-ladies-man); and my favorite character of all, Nick (basically a grumpy old man trapped in a thirty something year old body). However, this post is not about the actual TV show, but the ever so feminine dresses she wears. The following outfits below are what I think would be Jess-Approved.
These dresses have the power to make any girl look lovely. I love the different variations of necklines and patterns (collared, cowl, low, high)/(floral, stripes, polka dot, solid); and how vintage inspired they are. I tend to like these types of girly dresses, rather than sequined/tulle disasters. After all, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” ^_~
