Cold Shoulder

I love a good cold shoulder top.  And this floral embroidered number is my current favorite.  Plus I love that it has bell sleeves too.   Definitely fun to have two trends in one without feeling too over the top.

Floral Dress

If you guys have been following this blog for a while, then you definitely know I am a huge fan of long-sleeved dresses.  And this Spring is no different.  While I also always love wearing light jackets over dresses this time of year, sometimes it’s kind of nice to leave the extra layer at home.  Plus, I’m always game for any kind of dress with a little twirl factor.  And this one definitely fits the bill!

Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend.  And here’s to making Monday count!

Balloon Sleeves

I stalked this top online forever.  But I just didn’t think I could pull off the balloon sleeves.  Bell sleeves are one thing, but this exaggerated version is a whole different story.  But I have to say, I am so glad I finally took the plunge.  It’s such a fun piece to have in my wardrobe, and surprisingly goes with so many different things.  Is this a trend you guys would ever try?  I’d love to know!

White Out

I am seriously loving white everything right now.  From dresses, to nails, to tops, to handbags, I’m finding myself gravitating towards it more than usual this season.  And I have a feeling that as the days continue to get warmer, I will keep on reaching for all of the white pieces in my closet. This is definitely a trend that is easy for anyone to get behind!

Blush

This jacket is about the best thing in my closet right now.  If it looks familiar, that’s because I own it in black and in a burgundy color and wear them both all of the time.  In fact, I am in NYC right now and my black version was the first thing I packed for my trip.  And the good news is, Nordstrom has it fully stocked in black, cognac, and this blush color right now.  The fit is amazing, the faux leather is gorgeous quality, AND it’s under $100!  I would highly recommend adding this piece (in at least one, if not two!), colors to your closet this season.  It’s one of those classic staples that you will wear again and again (all year round), and I just can’t say enough good things about it!

Pastels

As soon as the temps begin to warm up, and the clocks spring forward, I always start thinking about what I want to wear for Easter.  And today’s outfit would be a great option for an Easter dinner or brunch, or even a more casual church service. Because if anything says Spring in my book, it’s a pretty pale shade of pastel pink, and a light wash denim jacket.DSC_5031 DSC_4946 DSC_4974 DSC_4957 DSC_4964 DSC_4969 DSC_4945 DSC_5014 DSC_4959 DSC_4996 DSC_5021Jacket: JCrew (on sale!)

Field Jacket

I love a good jacket!  Especially this time of year when the temps are warming up, but it’s not quite warm enough (at least where I live!) to go without some layers.  I had been eyeing this jacket at JCrew for quite some time, so when I finally went on sale, I pounced.  It is a classic piece that I will have in my closet for years to come and lately that is what I am trying to focus on-making smart shopping decisions.

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…

Hope you are all having a fantastic week!

 

 

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?

Je T’aime

So, I almost didn’t have any blog photos to share with you guys this week.  For once, I was actually ahead of the game and shot some pics over the weekend, but when I went to import them into Lightroom, I received a dreaded error that my SD card was corrupted.  I tried everything to retrieve the photos, but no luck.  So thank goodness for my tech savvy hubby who was able to save the day for me!  And so, in today’s outfit, it should be noted that the message on my new favorite graphic tee is not just dedicated to my love for the combination of neon yellow, and blue, but also, specifically to him.  Je t’aime (I love you)…
