I am so ready for spring! Lately all I’ve been wanting to wear are lighter, brighter colors and I keep thinking that I really need a denim jacket to layer over spring florals. While we aren’t quite there yet, it’s been feeling like spring in AZ. I took full advantage of the warmer weather and decided to dress in spring pastels today. I love how crisp white jeans look and I’ve been waiting all winter to wear these! When I got this nude top with rose gold sequins, I knew it would be perfect to pair with these jeans. I added some gold and blush accents and ended up with what I think is a pretty cute spring-like outfit.
I like to wear a lot of different prints but stripes are definitely my number one. I love how they are simple and classic but can easily be bold and fresh depending on the size and what I pair them with. I usually go for a breton stripe but every now and then I mix it up, like with these two tops. I’ve been craving lots of stripes lately and these two black and white striped tops caught my eye. I love the fun details like gingham sleeves and a peplum but my favorite part is how easy each striped top is to wear.
It’s no secret that I am a lover of pink lipsticks. I’m not quite sure exactly how many I own (mostly because I’m too embarrassed to count) but it’s a lot. Like, a lot. I can’t help it, I just love them all! They’re great during the winter to add a pop of color to my all-black-and-gray wardrobe and when it’s warmer out they pair perfectly with more colorful outfits. I love all pink lip colors whether they’re light, mod pinks or more nude shades but I especially love bright pinks. I frequently have people ask for recommendations or about the color I’m wearing so here’s a list of the 7 best bright pink lipsticks that you need to own!
I have a confession to make. A few weeks ago I was at work and realized I was wearing two different shoes! I have a pile of flats that I just grab from each morning and I picked two different styles that day. And they weren’t even close, one was gray suede and one was black leather. Talk about embarrassing. Luckily, no one noticed and I was able to pop over to Target to get some matching shoes. I found these quilted black flats with ankle straps and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since, so I guess it all worked out in the end (but now I’m much more aware of what shoes I leave the house in!). I’ve been wearing them all the time and a few days ago I thought they would look great with the sequins and stripes on this dress, dark jeans, and a black blazer for a casual, put-together look.
When it comes to fashion, I’m a sucker for stripes and classic pieces with interesting details. Stripes are a great way to add a little interest to an outfit without going overboard. Classic pieces stand the test of time for a reason and I love how extra touches can elevate them from being simple, minimalistic pieces that you see everywhere to something a little more fun while still being understated. For this outfit, I wanted something comfortable but still cute so I went with a striped top and sheer maxi skirt with some extra details.
I love when spring rolls around and I can ditch the tights I’ve been wearing all winter! I love warm weather (good for me since I live in Phoenix) and I spend all winter counting down the days until I can wear a skirt with bare legs. Luckily, it gets warm pretty quick here so I don’t have to suffer for too long. I recently picked out a couple of new spring skirts from Dresslink and I was so happy when they arrived and I was able to wear them with bare legs immediately! I’m not quite ready for mini skirts yet (those seem like more of a summer thing) so I went with two midi skirts in different materials: a white tulle skirt and a red scuba skirt.
