I love fun basics that you can throw together to create a super cute outfit in almost no time. This black and white striped tunic has been one of my favorites the last few months and I’ve been wearing plenty of light layers with it as the weather has gotten warmer. This gray sweater is perfect over tunics and I’ve been living in these crazy-soft skinny jeans. Add some suede boots and a sparkly statement necklace and I’m good to go!
While I love blacks and grays, every now and then I want something a little more earthy feeling. Dark brown and cream are a great alternative and I love how they look with lots of gold jewelry. This dark brown leather jacket has been a staple in my closet for years (and I have to admit, it’s seen better days and I really need to get a new one) and I love how it looks with these lighter brown leather boots.
I love to wear lots of comfy layers on my days off. I will usually run a few errands and I like to look cute when I’m out in public but then a good portion of my day is spent on the couch blogging and watching Netflix. While I don’t mind changing several times throughout the day (and I do that fairly frequently), I prefer outfits that are versatile enough that I don’t have to. Leggings and tunics are staples for me and I love cozy sweaters that I can wrap up in if I get cold. This lace hem tunic is one of my new favorites and it’s currently on clearance for less than $6!
Isn’t it funny how sometimes our outfits can go in stages? Sure, we all have certain pieces that we gravitate towards and trends that we like to follow, but don’t you sometimes just find yourself reaching for the same thing over and over again, even though your closet is full of other clothes? I know I definitely experience that and this black and white striped tunic is my latest obsession.
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.
For me, spring means lots of color! Now that the cold weather is gone, it’s time to brighten some things up! I know spring is usually the time for light colors but in addition to lots of cream, blush, and baby blue I’ve been adding plenty of bright jewel tones to my wardrobe. I just love how deep and vibrant the colors are and I think they really pop, especially when worn together. Plus, these vivid colors complement my skin tone a lot more than washed out pastels.
