Jean Jacket

Whether you call it a denim jacket or a jean jacket, if you don’t own one, then you should! Denim jackets are a key item for Spring, and a great investment piece that will last you for seasons to come. And while they are a great layering piece while we wait for the temps to warm up, they are also really cute. In fact, my favorite way of styling them as of late is back to flirty dresses and skirts-allowing me to get into my summer wardrobe a little earlier than usual.  And if you are really feeling the denim jacket this season (like I am), then I would be sure to venture out and purchase one in both a dark wash (see yesterday’s post), and also in a light wash…

Tulle Cool For School

Ahhh tulle, how I love you so.  So fun, so whimsical, and the perfect fabrication to make any girl feel like a princess.  And let me tell you ladies, tulle isn’t just for ballerinas anymore.  So if you are looking for something different (and super fun!) to add to your wardrobe this spring, then a tulle skirt is the ticket.  You can wear them back to anything from a t-shirt, to a blouse, to a button down, to a jean-jacket.  Rest assured, you will be pleasantly surprised at the plethora of things you will able to style your tulle skirt with.  But perhaps more importantly, how fabulous it will make you feel…

Candy Crush

Well no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t quite make it a week without these pumps making an appearance on the blog.  I just love the fun pop of color they bring to any outfit.  So if you don’t have a fun, candy colored pump in your wardrobe, then its high time to add a pair!  I promise,  you will get more wear out of them than you could even anticipate!

Easter Best

When I was a little girl, my mom always dressed me to the nines for Easter Sunday-pretty dress, white gloves, and of course an Easter bonnet.  And while I don’t bust out gloves or a new bonnet for Easter Sunday anymore, it is still ingrained in me to get dressed up for the occasion.  And what better outfit for Easter Sunday than a candy colored sweater and pretty floral skirt?

Happy (almost) weekend!

 

Reverse It

So I have a little secret.  Remember yesterday’s post and the super cute nude cami I was wearing underneath my red blazer?  Well guess what?  The purple cami in today’s post is the exact. same. shirt-just reversed!  I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was when I stumbled on this amazing find at Express a few weeks ago.  Not only is the styling of this particular cami perfect for a multitude of outfits, but every cami is essentially two shirts in one.  Two for the price of one??  Pretty tough to beat that kind of a deal, don’t you think?  So run, don’t walk to your local Express (or use the link below) to pick up your own.  This is definitely a must-have item in every gal’s closet this spring!  I know the mint/ivory combo is next on my wishlist.  Which one is your favorite?

Red Pop

Listen up ladies, red isn’t just for the holiday season anymore!  Paired with the right color combinations (think neutrals!!), red is a color we should be wearing all. year. long.  And while I typically tend to shy away from reds during the warmer months (as I’m sure we all tend to do), paired back to nudes and light wash denim, red really is the perfect pop of color for Spring!

Sorry I’m Not Sorry

I find it to be kind of amusing when people use the term “Sorry I’m not sorry”.  And I have to say, that is exactly how I feel every time I slip on these neon heels.  I mean, let’s be honest, I am pretty much obsessed with them.  They are so super comfy, go with just about everything, and bring such a fun element to any outfit. And even though they are from last summer, I still can’t seem to get enough.  So I am just going to have to put it out there-I’m sorry I’m not sorry that you are (once again this season) going to be seeing a lot of these pumps on the blog…

Rad Plaid

I am a pretty tried and true JCrew and Gap girl when it comes to my beloved button downs.  And I rarely (if ever) venture outside of this cozy comfort zone.  However, since I didn’t have any luck with either store on my hunt for a light gray plaid shirt this spring, I was forced to venture out.  And I have to say, I am glad that I did because I am absolutely LOVING the fit and style of this Ralph Lauren Denim and Supply top. It is slightly longer in the back, the fabric is light and airy, and the fit is fantastic. In fact, it’s been such a popular shirt at Macy’s, it’s been selected as a customer favorite. And you know what that means?  More prints and patterns to come!  I know I’ll be on the lookout to add some additional versions of this fantastic shirt to my closet!

Sequin Peplum

I knew the second I saw this top in person that I had to have it.  I had seen it on the Banana Republic website, but didn’t realize just how gorgeous it was until I saw it in the store. This top is absolutely the prettiest mix of a sequined floral print, with just a touch of neon piping.  And I have to say, it is one of those extra special pieces that only seem to come around every once in a while. And even though sometimes they take  a little seeking out, every girl should have a couple of these extra special pieces in her wardrobe!

Bloomingdales Friends and Family

It’s that time of year again!  The Bloomingdales Friends and Family event is going on right now through April 6th-which means you can save 20% off of everything in the store (use code FF14 at checkout)!  And because there are so many amazing things to choose from, I wanted to share both my neutral and neon picks for the Spring season with all of you.  Pretty good stuff, don’t you think??
Bloomingdales Friends and Family
1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | 8. | 9. | 10. | 11. (here and here) | 12.
Luckily for me, this sale also just happens to coincide with the arrival of my 2013 annual bonus, so I am thinking of splurging on one of the handbags above.  But before I make my decision, I’d love to know, which one is your favorite?  The neon Kate Spade?  Or the neutral Rebecca Minkoff?
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!!
