Spring Lookbook

Hello!

This Spring Lookbook was so fun to create! I created four looks based off of some requests I received. If there’s ever a look you want to see, even if I’m not creating a lookbook, you can always contact me on any of my social media platforms that are at the bottom of this post. I hope you enjoy!

  1. Floral Dress: I received a lot of requests on how to wear a floral dress. Even though I can hear Miranda Priestly saying “Florals, for spring? How groundbreaking.”  To me, this print is NEVER played out and will always be in style year-round. I paired this Victoria Beckham dress with a pair of loafers just to mix up my look. This dress can easily be paired with a pair of heels or open-toed sandals. I like that this isn’t an overall floral printed dress. It’s a great way to introduce yourself to prints without being overwhelmed by them.

Necklace: H&M

2.  Mixed Prints: Speaking of prints…this next look is all about prints! Every time I wear an outfit with mixed prints, I wonder why I don’t do it more often. It’s fun and a great way to personalize your looks. There are many ways to mix prints. If you’re feeling daring but unsure of how to mix prints, try wearing two different prints at opposite ends. For example, wear printed shoes and a printed top or a printed hat with printed pants. The distance between the prints makes them less overwhelming.

3.  Maxi Skirt: Don’t get me wrong, I love a maxi skirt but I wanted to switch up how to style one for spring. So this is actually a maxi skirt! It’s great for when we all have that “I have nothing to wear” moment. Just wear your maxi skirt as a dress and pair it with a belt to define your waist and all of a sudden, you have a new outfit for spring.

Shoes: Nine West

4.  Date Night: I love the idea of wearing a romper for date night. It’s a great way to welcome warmer weather. I kept my accessories pretty light for this look. When I’m showing a lot of skin, I like my look to be balanced. This was probably my favorite look. It was very windy out but it was worth it!

How to: Dress for Transitional Weather

Hello!

  I’ll admit it. Im trying to be patient and wait on spring but it’s hard! In the morning it’s cold outside; however, by noon it’s warm outside and the sweater that was perfect for the morning is suddenly making me sweat by noon. This transitional weather can be difficult to dress for. One solution for this type of weather that I always suggest is: layering. Layering is an easy fix to confusing weather. You can easily layer with a cardigan or a light jacket, just as I did in the look below. 

   As the weather continues to be stubborn, I’m sure I’ll post more transitional looks so stay tuned! Here are the outfit details for this look:

Suede Jacket: Who What Wear for Target

Hat: Target

Turtleneck: Target

Romper: Charlotte Russe

Boots: Old Navy


I’ll be completing a Spring Lookbook. If there is a certain look you want to see, feel free to comment below.

Faux Fur Jacket

Happy Monday!

     I’m so ready for spring! In the Carolinas, we have had a very mild winter. Usually we have snow and ice a few times in February but this year, it snowed once in January and that’s it! So this past weekend when it dropped to cooler temperatures, I thought it was the perfect time to bring out my faux fur jacket. I love this jacket! Aside from the fact that it keeps me warm, it’s so fierce and chic. It’s one of my favorite winter jackets. I want to know, what are some winter fashions you’re trying to wear before the warm weather is here? Comment below!

Jacket: Express

Shirt: H&M

Jeans: H&M

Booties: ShoeDazzle

Proud Coachella Wannabe

Hello!

I hope you are having a great week! By now, I’m sure you have seen that Coachella has kicked off. Every year, I say that I will go next year…and while I still haven’t been yet, I usually dress in an outfit that I would wear at Coachella. So I’ve deemed myself as the Coachella Wannabe. One day, I will be there but until then, I’ll fake it, till I make it. This is one of my favorite jumpsuits to wear. There’s no blending in with the crowd with this bold statement. Here’s what I wore:

Jumpsuit: Forever21

Scarf: Nordstrom’s Rack

Shoes: ShoeDazzle

Rings: Forever21

Denim Jacket: New York & Company
