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.
There are a few things I can never say no to while shopping (like black and white stripes and pops of bright pink). Fun prints are pretty near the top of the list (see examples here and here) and if it’s a great star print, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be going home with me. This dress checked off quite a few boxes when I saw it- star print, long sleeves, and appropriate for work. Check, check, and check. And since I found it at H&M, the price was right too. I mean, how could I resist?
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 have been really into sweaters lately. I get cold easily but I’m not a fan of wearing bulky layers or jackets, especially on my days off when I’m running errands or lounging around the house. As a result, I tend to end up wearing a uniform of sorts during the colder months- a cozy sweater with jeans or leggings and preferably some fun sneakers. It can definitely get a bit repetitive (especially since once I find a sweater I love, I tend to wear it for multiple days in a row) so I always look for pieces with something special. This lace up sleeve sweater from SheIn is my latest find and it’s been on repeat since I got it.
