Pink stripes, off the shoulder, flutter sleeves and a tie detail. Yeah, lets combine all of this spring’s trends into one gorgeous top! Not that I’m complaining, this pink striped top is one of my favorites of the season. I am kinda sad that it’s sold out, but I found a ton of similar ones linked below!! When in comes to these interesting blouses with lots of detail, I tend to go extra simple with the pairings. Like here, a light colored striped top pairs classically with white pants and accessories. I wasn’t going to mess with the ease of that pairing! But versatility is also a necessity and I think this top will look amazing with denim too!
Favorite fabric for the spring/summer? Chambray of course…or linen, or seersucker; ok, ok, I like all spring fabrics. So in the warmer months, I’m always looking for breathable fabrics that work well in high heat and humidity. Chambray definitely falls into this category. So, when I saw this adorable chambray romper with ruffles and a deep v-neck, I knew it was perfect for the season. If I’m being completely honest, my small-chested self was kinda self-conscious in this revealing romper. The neckline is way outside of my comfort zone, but I went with it and started to love the details. So cheers to getting outside of that imaginary box, because it usually works out well!
When you think about a casual spring weekend outfit, what comes to mind? For me its either the white denim + cute graphic tee + comfy flats combo or workout clothes; so basic right?! What I love about graphic tees is, they’re a quick and simple way to get a fun message across. There are countless times when I see a graphic tee and just think…wow, it doesn’t get more relatable than that. Take this one, for example, it means Life is Beautiful and when I tell someone that, it just brings a smile to their face. Finding clothing that evokes positive emotion is always a win in my book.
We all know that blush is a hot color in the spring and all year round. But recently, I find myself in love with beige clothing pieces more and more. The neutral color is warm, inviting, and super flattering. It slims, elongates and just looks great on everyone. Since beige is the neutral of neutrals it also pairs well with almost everything. New favorite color?! I think so!
All winter long, and for the first half of spring, you can find me in a trusty turtleneck. Easily this winter’s most versatile staple, the turtleneck sweater helps me stay warm and cozy on many occasions. I love how this one isn’t too oversized and frumpy, and layers well. It can be dressed up or down and looks great with just about anything. Since the northeast is covered in snow and the south feels like winter again, it’s unlikely that I’ll be packing up my sweaters anytime soon. Although, I would prefer a cute gingham dress instead.
Spring transitional time is here and it is the most awkward time of the year when it comes to clothing. Especially in the south where it is 35 degrees in the morning and 80 degrees by lunchtime; literal hot and cold extremes in one day. Fortunately, I work in a very casual office setting, so I’m living in tees and jeans for the next few weeks. And of course, throwing on a cardigan is essential since it’ll very likely be freezing by the end of the day. When you’re looking for spring transitional outfit inspiration, just opt for easy layers. It isn’t much work peeling off layers if necessary, but being too hot or too cold all day is a pain.
When you’re hot then you’re cold…I feel like this is my life currently. I have a feeling that the hot/cold transitional time will last for another month too. The best way to tackle the unpredictable weather is to be prepared. My recent go-to is a warm, but still breathable sweater. I wear a thin top underneath and can easily remove the sweater if necessary. Since my extremities are always cold, having a trusty sweater on hand is very helpful. So if you’re confused with what to wear during this un-fun weather, check out my list of spring sweaters in gorgeous spring colors.
