Casual Spring look

Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Did you guys have any fun plans? This was a super relaxing weekend for me because for once in my life, I didn’t wait until the weekend to do my homework, haha! Maybe I should do that more often…

Today I’m sharing a casual spring look with you guys that I am loving lately. Yes, I know, it’s another off the shoulder top. I am OBSESSED lately, I can’t help it, but I promise there are different tops coming to my blog in the near future, haha. There were so many things I loved about this top that I got from Marshalls. Along with my OTS obsession, I’ve also been in love with stripes, so this top caught my attention right away. I love the blue and white, as it seems so beachy. I also really liked the cute little bow in the front that allows you to adjust the tightness. I wanted to keep this look super casual, so instead of heeled sandals, I decided to pair it with these white espadrilles. I think this look will be perfect for any spring/summer day, and I am SO looking forward to warmth! What has the weather been like where you live? Do you guys have t-shirt weather yet, or are you still battling winter like we are here in New England?

Floral Tops

Hi, everyone! How are you guys? I know it’s a little different for me to post on a Thursday, but it’s the last time I have this week. There will be a new post on Monday, though! So, raise your hand if you’ve been obsessed with anything floral lately. I have been buying almost every floral top I find, and I’m not even mad at myself, haha. Spring is the perfect excuse for floral everything, right?!

This adorable top was from Marshalls, and if I remember correctly, I purchased it for $15 dollars! I’m sure you all can tell by now, but I’m a casual type of gal. I love keeping all of my looks pretty simple and stick to an “everyday” style. That being said, I wanted to style this top so that it would be cute to wear for a nice day out, so I paired it with jeans and heeled sandals. Something I have been loving about heeled sandals is that they really help to dress up your look just a bit incase you don’t want to look “too” casual. If I did want to keep this look as casual as possible, I would probably wear some brown flat sandals that match my bag. Lastly, I promise it wasn’t that cold out when I took these pictures, the snow is deceiving, haha! What has been your favorite spring trend? Thanks so much for reading!

Bright Tops for Spring

Hi, everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far. How many of you are so excited that spring is finally here?! I know I am. Now, if only the weather could be warmer *sigh*. One of my favorite things about spring is the array of bright colored clothes to choose from. I love having a few items in my spring wardrobe that really pop, and make a great focal point for any outfit.

I recently purchased this adorable off the shoulder top from Old Navy, and it is currently under $30! The material is sooo comfortable and lightweight, so it would be perfect to wear on warmer days. I think the color is gorgeous, and really helps it stand out. I have always been a lover of anything bright red/orange and this top is the perfect mix of those colors. I also love the way the white diamond pattern really stands out against the red/orange color of the top. Since it is still pretty chilly out, I decided to pair the top with some skinny jeans, that have the cutest knee patches, as well as some velvet booties. I think this top would look adorable with a pair of denim shorts and some heeled sandals once it finally warms up outside! How do you guys feel about the bright spring colors?

Spring Must-Have: Off the shoulder dresses

Happy Wednesday, everyone! How has your week been so far? If you’re on spring break, I hope you are enjoying the time off! With the weather (hopefully) getting warmer soon, I wanted to share one of my must-have spring items, which is an off the shoulder dress. I have been so obsessed with anything off the shoulder lately, and I find myself wearing a lot more dresses in the spring than any other season, so combining the two just make for the perfect match. There are SO many different styles out there, and it’s so easy to find the right for you. I swear, once you find one, you’ll want to wear it everyday! I know I have. This is just one of three I have bought already, and I can’t wait to share the rest with you!

One of my favorite colors for the spring this year has been light blue. I think it’s the perfect color to transition to the warmer months ahead. Did you know blue can actually make you feel happier and more calm? No wonder I have been loving it lately! Another one of my obsessions lately has been stripes. When I found this dress for only $15 dollars, yes $15 dollars, and it combined all three of my current faves, I knew I would automatically love it, and I can definitely say I do! This dress is pretty oversized, which makes it extra comfortable. I also love the ruffles at the top, as it gives the dress a more girly look. If you read my previous post, you would remember me saying one of my current favorite color combos is blue and brown, so for this outfit I added a brown cross body and my favorite fedora hat. For shoes, I wanted to stick to something pretty simple, so I decided on my white strappy espadrilles. I think this outfit would really be perfect for any day this spring, and you can always dress it up with a statement necklace, and some heels. What are you current spring must-haves?

Stripes & Cardigans

Happy snow day to all of you who are getting hit by winter storm, Stella! As of right now, I still have power and have a relaxing day planned ahead, so I am taking full advantage of this day. If I lose power later on, it may be a different story, haha! How are you guys spending your day so far? Are any of you on spring break?

It’s insane to think that when I took these photos last week, it was in the 60’s, and today we are getting a snowstorm. Oh, New England weather! Well, before it became winter again, I was really enjoying being able to wear light, spring outfits, and this has been one of my favorite casual looks! My latest obsession for the spring is stripes, and I am really trying to incorporate them into more of my looks. For this outfit, I wanted to mix navy blues and browns together because that is one of my favorite color combos to wear. I have been loving this adorable sleeveless striped turtleneck and cardigan together. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture, but the back of the cardigan is sheer, and I think it gives this look that extra something. Once again, I broke out my fave new heeled sandals, and my go-to tote to add in the brown colors. For accessories, I wore my JORD Wood Watch, which has also been a go-to of mine! What are some of your favorite color combos to wear?

Thanks for reading!

Lace Tops & Heeled Sandals

Hi, everyone! I’m so sorry for my lack of posts in the past week. I usually get my outfit pictures done on the weekends, but I ended up getting a bad cold last weekend, and I didn’t want to brace the cold! We had one nice day this week when it came to weather, so I took full advantage of it, and have plenty of posts coming up in the next week!

Recently, I found this adorable top for under $20 dollars at Marshalls (my favorite place), and I have been wearing it non-stop. I absolutely love the lace details, and it is so versatile. This shirt is really easy to dress up, or down. Today, I wore it in a casual way by pairing it with some skinny jeans and a pair of cute heeled sandals. I think this look could easily be dressed up by even wearing a pair of white jeans or a cute skirt. I always love finding items that I can wear multiple different ways, and for multiple occasions because I feel like I am getting the best deal. My Sam Edelman sandals have also been a favorite of mine lately, and they are from Marshalls, as well. They can really help to dress up any look, and the best part is that they are actually very comfortable. You can wear these with anything, too, as you guys saw in my last post, I wore them with a graphic tee to dress the look up a bit! For accessories I added a simple gold necklace and my JORD Wood Watch.

What are some of your favorite versatile items in your wardrobe? Thanks for reading!

Good morning, everyone! How has your week been so far? Can you believe it’s already Wednesday?! The weather over the last week has been absolutely incredible, and I have been loving being able to put the winter jackets away for now.

One of my current favorites at the moment is this super cute and girly graphic tee. I have been a graphic tee lover for as long as I can remember, as they are so easy to dress up or down. Not to mention, they are seriously so comfortable! I have been obsessed with this adorable “Brunch Queen” tee from Printable Happies! This shirt seriously describes me so well, as I find myself having brunch almost everyday. Is it because I eat breakfast WAY too late? Possibly. But it gave me a great excuse to pick this cute top, haha! Allyson, has SO many adorable items in her shop to choose from, so be sure to check her out!

Today, I wanted to show you all three easy ways to style a graphic tee! I really wanted to dress up my look a little more in the first outfit, so I paired the tee with some adorable lace up heeled sandals, and my fave tote bag. For my next outfit, I wanted to stick to a more “dressed up” look, but I wanted to keep it cozy, for colder spring days. I added a cardigan on top of the tee and a fringe bag  to match the color of my sandals. Lastly, for my third outfit, I wanted to go for a much more casual look. To give the tee an edgier vibe, I tied a flannel around my waist and wore my go-to adidas sneakers. I think this outfit would be perfect for a day out or to just hangout in! Which outfit was your favorite? Thanks so much for reading, and have an amazing Wednesday, friends!

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you are all having a great morning, and have some exciting plans for tonight. I have such a fun post for you guys today because I partnered with JORD Wood Watches to create a super cute look for spring!

I was so excited to receive my gorgeous Reece zeebrawood and emerald watch the other day. Those of you who have been following me for a little while, will remember I also partnered with JORD back in November, so when I was asked again, I was so excited. I love how unique the JORD watches are, and they are such a great transition accessory for spring. The emerald face of this watch reminded me of all the gorgeous leaves that will be making an appearance soon, and the light colored wood is the perfect look for spring. I always love to bring my bright and fun accessories out for spring to add a pop to any outfit. Not only are JORD watches gorgeous, but the packaging they come in is just as gorgeous! I always love to keep the boxes on display, haha!

The best part is that there is also a contest that you all can enter by clicking HERE. Everyone that enters will be eligible to win a $100 e gift code to use towards a watch! There will only be one lucky winner of the $100 e gift code; however, everyone that enters will receive a $25 e gift code once the contest is over, so make sure to take advantage of it!

Now, let’s talk about my outfit. My favorite transition tops have definitely been off the shoulder tops. I am in love with the color and material of this top, and it’s a great piece to either dress up or down. As I’m sure you guys know, I love casual looks, so I stuck with a pair of skinny jeans. One of my other favorite transition pieces for the spring has been a pair of gorgeous heeled sandals. I am so in love with these, and I know they will go with any outfit this spring! To match my shoes I used this gorgeous bag, that is a perfect dupe for a Celine bag. What are your favorite transition pieces for the spring?! Thanks so much for reading!

Hey, everyone! How has your week been? Can you believe it’s already Wednesday?! This week is flying by. With the weather surprisingly warming up lately, I have found myself wearing so many dresses, and to be honest, I don’t hate it. For so many years dresses were my worst enemy, as I just couldn’t get myself to like them, but I can tell that is all going to change this year. I already know dresses are going to be my go-to this spring/summer, and I’m actually super excited to pick out some new ones.

As it is still a little chilly, knit dresses have been perfect lately, and I’ve been loving this one so much! Honestly, I bought this dress a year ago and never wore it until now. I’m starting to think I was crazy for never wearing it because it is SO comfortable. I wanted to go for a really laid back/casual outfit for this look so I paired the dress with my favorite denim jacket (if you don’t own a denim jacket yet, get one. Now. haha) my multi print purse, and the finishing touch was my fave new Adidas sneakers that I swear magically match every outfit. They were such a great purchase, and I highly recommend investing in a pair. You will not be disappointed! Let me know what your most recent go-to clothing item has been!

Hi, everyone! How is your Monday going so far? I finished my final essay for one of my classes last night, so I am celebrating today by relaxing all morning, woohoo! The other day was 61 degrees, which is VERY warm for this time of the year, so it was a perfect day to get outside and take some blog pictures, and boy did I take a lot!

For today’s outfit, I embraced the warm weather with a light button down shirt, which is probably one of the most comfortable tops I’ve ever worn. The fabric is so soft, it feels like I’m not even wearing anything. I also found these amazing high heel OTK boots at Marshalls on clearance the other day for under $30! What a steal, right?! Not to mention they look exactly like the Stuart Weitzman boots, and I didn’t have to break the bank to buy them. I wanted to go for a super casual spring look so I finished the look with a pair of denim skinny jeans and a multi print purse. I really loved how casual this look was, but the heels dress it up just a bit. I also think this look would be very cute with some adidas sneakers if you wanted to go for an even more casual look!
