I have been loving the warm weather lately! It’s been so nice and I love how bright green our neighborhood is. It’s been perfect for walking around and looking at the new blooms everywhere. I’ve been wearing a lot of light layers and simple sweaters with shorts like with this outfit. There’s something so nice about a light, soft sweater with shorts and fancy sneakers, don’t you think?
I’m always on the hunt for a good fashion deal. I can’t help it, I love clothes (especially fancy ones like this Vera Wang tunic) but I don’t love paying for them. Who does? So I shop the sales and spend a lot of time online window shopping for items before I decide which ones to buy. I like to make sure something is worth the investment before I buy it, although I definitely make spontaneous purchases every now and then. I usually buy my designer pieces at discounts from Gilt but I’ve recently discovered TheRealReal and now I’m addicted!
I’m not usually a fan of blush. It seems a little strange, considering I love pink, but blush feels like something else entirely. I love the idea of blush and it looks great on other people, but it’s hard for me to find blush clothes that I really like. Typically, they lean too brown or mauve-y and those colors just do not look good on me. I was really surprised when I found this blush mini dress though. It’s super pale and a true blush pink- no brown or mauve shades to be found. It feels perfect for spring and it’s definitely changed how I feel about the color.
Lately I have really been into light layers. I’ve basically been wearing my summer clothes and adding enough things on top until I feel warm enough. I love super soft, super thin fabrics and pieces that drape nicely and I’m having lots of fun coming up with new ways to wear them. This look is a perfect example. I love cool, casual maxi dresses but I’m not a fan of bare shoulders unless it’s crazy hot outside. So I added this thin tunic top over one and created a layered maxi dress that was perfect for wearing around town last weekend.
So… it’s not exactly coat weather in Phoenix right now. But, I have been searching for a pink coat for a long time with no success so I’m totally justified in getting this pink wrap coat now, right? Plus, I’ve got a vacation coming up, what if I visit someplace cold? I totally need this right now. In all honesty, I probably don’t but can you blame me for getting it? I love the shape and it’s the perfect spring coat- if you actually need one. And if you’re on the fence- just wait until you see the price!
I’ve been on a bit of a boot kick lately. I know, boots aren’t exactly what you expect to be buying in early spring but I’ve been finding such good deals, it’s been hard to resist them! I’ve been wanting over-the-knee boots for awhile and I was so excited when I found these ones on super clearance. Not only are they tall enough on me but they are also flat (a major plus as I hate walking around in heels all day). I love the slim fit and so far they’ve been comfortable to wear. I’ve been wearing them over skinny jeans and I think they’ll look so great with dresses as it warms up.
