Chic Outfits for the Spring and Summer

Hey everyone!

So…I took a little bit of a break after my 30 day blogging challenge, but I’m back and ready to share a lot of new content with you all!

It’s been raining nonstop here, but I know that means warmer weather is just around the corner, along with pretty, well-watered plants and flowers.

While I wait for the skies to clear up, I’ve been daydreaming quite a bit about outfits that are perfect for higher temperatures.

I’ve put together a few looks that I really like, featuring a lot of discounted pieces, as usual!

Check out the looks below and feel free to comment with your reactions/feedback.

Links to buy are included for everything, as well.

Dress | Sandals | Purse | Earrings

This black and white chevron dress is so easy to accessorize because its neutral colors go with pretty much anything. For Spring, I’d add a mint colored purse from Kate Spade and some pretty arm candy (pictured are the lotus, Stand Up to Cancer, and ‘What’s for you will not pass you’ bangles from Alex+Ani, plus a colorful bangle from a local boutique).

Dress | Heels

This dress is a little more formal; great for a graduation, shower, or any other event you may have coming up over the next few months. Also shown here are a large Kate Spade purse (not currently avail) and a matching necklace/earring set from NY&Co.

Shorts | Top | Sandals | Purse

I love some fun, bright colors in the warm weather! These adorable color blocked shorts are perfect with any white top, and I’ve just been dying to use this Valentino bag that I got at a huge discount from Saks, so here it is. 🙂

Dress | Sandals | Purse

Another pop of color comes from this pretty Boho Factory dress. Shown here with the same sandals and purse as the previous picture, and some added statement earrings (an old pair that I’ve had forever) to complete the look.

Dress | Belt | Bracelets | Shoes

It seems like every time the warm weather comes around I find myself with a new sunflower dress…not that I’m complaining! The dress and belt were both Amazon finds, the shoes I’ve raved about in multiple previous posts, and the bracelet set is from Boho Factory. The earrings, again, are a super old pair.

Easter Sunday Outfit Inspiration

Hi all,

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend.

For those who celebrate Easter, I’ve got some great inspiration for your outfit tomorrow!

See below for a few different outfits I put together, with links to buy.

Top | Jeans | Heels

This top from Venus is one of my favorites lately. Between the ombre pink color, the sparkles, and a little criss-cross detail on the sleeves, it has so many little details that make it unique and pretty.

Top | Skirt | Heels

I love this yellow skirt for Spring, but it’s especially perfect for Easter. Since it’s so bright and stands out on its own, I’ve styled it with a simple but pretty white top and nude heels.

Dress | Shoes

For those who prefer to wear darker colors, this black dress from Guess is great for many different occasions. I’ve added a mint colored Kate Spade purse to brighten it up for Easter.

Denim Jacket | Shoes

Here’s another way to style the Guess dress shown above. I’ve changed up the purse for an even bolder color, added a cute denim jacket, and swapped the sandals for a flat pair.

Dress | Shoes

For a dressier Easter look, this baby pink midi dress is perfect. It’s light and flowy, and has a beautiful off-the-shoulder sleeve detail. I added these Madden Girl sandals for extra sparkle.

Top| Jeans | Shoes

Here’s another casual outfit if you’re keeping it low-key tomorrow. This light colored top is great for Easter, and the black jeans are super comfy.

Do you already have your outfit picked out for tomorrow, or are you going to figure it out then?

I will probably choose one of the above to wear tomorrow, depending on my mood.

I hope you all have a great rest of your weekend, and enjoy the holidays if you celebrate! ❤ 🙂

Top Picks: Spring Shoes

Hi everyone,

Spring is finally upon us and I’m excited to change up my wardrobe a bit.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the winter and the snow, but I tend to buy a lot of warmer-weather clothes in the offseason and it’s nice to be able to finally show them off.

In addition to new Spring clothes, I’ve got plenty of Spring shoes to wear and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.

All of these are pretty cheap, which is always a plus in my book! I’ve included links for everything below the pictures.

Espadrilles

This is actually the first pair of espadrilles I’ve bought for myself in years, and I’m excited to wear them all Spring/Summer.

When I purchased these online, I didn’t notice the sparkled heel (does this happen to anyone else when online shopping, or is it just me who fails to look closely enough at the pictures?) but it was a nice surprise when I unboxed these because I really like that extra detail.

The neutral pink of these shoes can go with many different outfits, and because of their style and extra sparkle they work well with both dressy and casual looks.

Sneakers

You have probably seen these Nikes all over my Instagram and even in some pictures on my blog.

I love the unique color of them and they are so comfortable.

I can’t recommend these sneakers enough and they are available in a variety of fun color combinations.

Sandals

As I mentioned in my Intro post, I definitely have an edgy side when it comes to my style.

I love anything with skulls, studs, or spikes, so I love that these sandals combine a bow with cute little spikes.

I also love the unique color of these and wore them constantly on my honeymoon in Hawaii a few months ago.

Sandals

This is another flat sandal that’s more plain but looks really nice with a summer dress.

These shoes are definitely a great Spring or Summer staple and (as you can see a little bit in the picture) I’ve already been giving them plenty of use.

Sandals

A heeled sandal is a great way to dress up any outfit.

I included these shoes in my February Sales Haul post but wanted to mention them here again because I think they’re so pretty and versatile.

The block heel is also great because it’s easier to walk in and doesn’t make my feet hurt like other heels often do.

Heels

These lavender pumps are beautiful in any season, but the color is especially perfect for Spring.

I’m already thinking about what outfit I can pair these with for Easter, but I’ll undoubtedly find other events to wear them to all season long because of the pretty, light color. Bonus—they have a slightly padded sole so they’re very comfortable.

I’ve tried to include a variety of shoe types rather than just all sandals or sneakers, even though that is what I gravitate towards most often.

The fun thing about fashion is that there are so many ways to change it up and every day or activity is an opportunity to wear something new or different. 

Are there any new Spring shoes you’re excited to wear, or any old ones that you bring back every year?

Comment below to let me know your favorites!

As you probably know by now, I’m always on the lookout for great new styles. 🙂 ❤
