Spring Sale Picks

Screen Shot 2016-03-22 at 10.09.47 AM

Nordstrom has some awesome sale pieces right now that will fit in for a style-perfect spring wardrobe. I have gathered my favorite items (that have made it onto my wishlist!) to share here but I encourage you all to check it out for yourself!

White Button Front Skirt 

Button Front skirts are so trendy right now (loving the 90’s throwback!) and this white version is different and perfect for spring!

Striped Skirt

I was drawn to this skirt because it reminded me of something J. Crew would carry, but after I clicked on it I discovered it’s uniqueness! The sides of the skirt cut up a little giving this skirt a more edgy feel!

Mock Neck Dress

I have a few mock neck dresses but they are definitely more appropriate for winter. The fun pattern and airy fabric of this dress make it more suitable for spring!

Chambray Shirt Dress 

I have been searching for a good denim dress for the spring and this one caught my eye! I love the high/low feature and how well it pairs with white sneaks!

Lace Up Espadrille 

This shoe combines the casual style of espadrilles and the trendy aspect of lace-ups. I think the mixture is absolutely a shoe-win!

Lucky Brand Sling Back 

These were just too pretty not to include! Open toe booties are the perfect transition shoe for spring!

Utility Jacket 

I am seeing utility style jackets and vests up and down the blogosphere! I like the details on this one, especially the cinched waist!

Spring Break Wishlist

With March around the corner and spring weather making an appearance, all I can think about is the beach! Luckily for me I will be there in 3 short weeks! While I might be ready for fun in the sun, my wardrobe certainly is not. So I have compiled my favorite spring-break must-haves!

Bathing Suits

Obviously I love the palm print and am so excited it is sticking around for another year! This time I am definitely getting in on the trend!

Sandals

I have included all of the essentials here: tassel, lace up, jelly and classic (Tory Burch duh).

Cover-ups

Lace // Nordstrom

White OTS // ASOS

Blue // ASOS

Tassel // Anthropology

Is anyone else going on spring break this year? What are your beach must haves?

Swing Dress + Cape

 

This weekend I ventured out with a best friend to take advantage of the mild weather and snap some photos for the blog (and her up and coming writer website!) I was so excited to (finally) sport by camel cape! The poncho/cape trend is super hot right now and I could jump on board without breaking the bank with this one. I bought the cape and swing dress from Shein.com. I am extremely impressed with the quality of the items for the price (both are $15). I know many bloggers have raved about this site and I happy to join them! The swing dress is a rich, pretty red that is perfect for the holiday season! My only complaint is that it is a little short but I think with black tights it would be perfect! The cape is amazingly warm. I actually wore it out at night to go ice skating and I was completely comfortable.

Why I Wear Oversized T-shirts

Okay, so I thought it was about time for another ‘why’ post just in case other people need justification for why they do something as well. This time it’s another sorority girl staple: oversized t-shirts. These could be your t-shirts, your boyfriend/friend-that-is-a-boy’s,or that one random guy’s who you stole it from the morning after waking up in his unfamiliar room (oops). We all do it and we all love it. It is mostly the reason why I have posted so few Outfit of the Days. I just can’t pass up the t-shirt. It calls to me. So let me tell you why I wear them:

  1. They pair well with another versatile item in my closet: leggings. Check out why I wear those here
  2. They are seasonless. I wear them in the winter. I wear them in the summer. I wear them when its spitting rain and the humidity makes the 60 degree weather feel 10 degrees hotter. (plus they match my frizzy hair for a just rolled out of bed look)
  3. They are comfy. I’m not even the biggest advocate for comfort but sometimes you just need it.
  4. They cover up my norts so no one can see if I’m wearing shorts or not and I like a little mystery in my life.
  5. I like to REPRESENT. I love my sorority and the majority of my t-shirts let everyone know that.
  6. The pressure to find something to wear in the mornings is to much. I panic. I put on something too warm. Then I’m hot in class. And then I can’t focus. And then I fail. T-shirts=good grades (it’s just logical)

So there you have it. A complete list that you can submit to any t-shirt hater. You may look like a slob but at least you are happy with life.

Pineapple Express

Just let me take a minute to tell you how completely obsessed I am with pineapples. I am seeing them all over the place and I AM LITERALLY IN LOVE. I couldn’t be happier that this is the new trend and cannot wait to pick up a piece of my own. Everywhere from J. Crew to Topshop to Forever 21 is adopting this playful pattern. I thought I would share some of my favorite finds!

1. I adore this bikini. Its the perfect combination of classic and trendy and I. want. it. I found it on Topshop! Looks like I will be saving my pennies!

2. Oh you know J. Crew was on this trend faster than a monogram on a sorority girl. The skirt is exactly my style with its structured A-line and perfect styling with a button down.

3. I can’t find where these are from (sad face), but I obsessed with pom-poms sooooooooo these are perfection. Side note on pom poms: they make everything better.

4. Another J.Crew find. This is more muted so it can be paired with more. So if you’re ready to rock the casual vibe with some cutoffs and a sun hat this is your go-to! I think I’ll be watching J. Crew factory for any discounts on their pineapple themed wear!

Comment below if you have any spring style trends you love or have a perfect piece of pineapple clothing!
