It’s A Spring Thing

Hi guys! It’s the last week in February, which means Spring is just around the corner and I could not be more excited. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I am already in full Spring mode when it comes to fashion! I don’t really do Winter (hence why I live in California and refuse to ever leave), so I am glad we have gotten through the colder months and that sun + flowers are on the horizon.

Spring trends are emerging, so I wanted to share my faves with you guys as well as lots of fun pieces I am eyeing and buying. My top trends for Spring so far (major emphasis on so far as I know I will start obsessing over others) are: simple strappy mini heels, babydoll style dresses, paperbag/tie waist detailing, oversized blazers and tiered hemlines (on dresses and skirts).

I have styled each of these trends a bit already and can’t wait to keep playing with them. I will link each of these pieces below, but let me share some super quick details on each.

SPRING 2020 TRENDS

The BLAZER. It’s kind of a forever trend, but I feel like this season they are longer and more oversized for sure. Don’t be intimidated by this fit, just keep the rest of your look feminine to combat the masculinity. I styled this cream one with a simple tee and this dreamy Misa skirt. Kinda conservative, but with a touch of girly fun! And then I also styled this amazing, amazing pink Staud blazer with a simple cami + paperbag jeans. I made sure to choose a jean that was skinny fit to level out the bigger blazer. I LOVE this combo. For a night out, for a casual office look…it’s just fun.

With that look, also comes the PAPERBAG/TIE WAIST. Those jeans are from last year and one of my favorites. They are so well priced at $68 and just comfy. They look great with a sneaker too! I have the jean skirt version (bottom middle) from them and love it equally. That tie waist detailing is everywhere and I am here for it! You guys know I love a belt, it just makes any look more feminine and fab.

On to the SIMPLE STRAPPY MINI HEEL. Ok, these tan Jeffrey Campbell heels I have been posting on my Instagram nonstop are a MUST HAVE. Trust me on this! $130, super comfy and the elongate your legs. What more could you want?! Wearing them in the bottom right pict as well as a ton more on my Insta. They go with everything and just blend in so well.

THE BABYDOLL DRESS. Bottom right again, I adore this cute fun style of dresses that is popping everywhere. I styled a white one last week as well, but this blue and white mini is my current favorite for sure. It’s tiered, comfortable and just the easiest throw on! Unbelted it’s great too, I just thought the belt made it even more girly + fab. I will link some other options, but it’s the easiest trend to take on! Great with a sneaker on the go or with a simple heel too.

And last, TIERED HEMLINES

Obviously I am loving it with the midi skirt, but I have seen maxi dresses and even minis with this detailing too. I mean how can you not love this trend? It’s so so girly. I think it’s best paired with a little tee and jacket, but you could also do a simple cami or bodysuit too. All three of these are Springy faves for sure! Also, I think belting this style is important as it brings in your waist so the ruffles don’t take over. You don’t have to, but I really think it adds a feminine flare.

Ok, enough talking, here are the other Spring pieces I am currently eyeing:

Valentine’s Day: Outfit & Gift Ideas

Hey friends! Happy almost February! January was a bit long, but we made it and now it’s time to think about what you are wearing for your Galentines or Valentine’s celebration. I personally LOVE Valentine’s day, not because I have a sweet hubby (although he is amazing + I am v lucky), but more so because in general I think it’s a day to spread love. To remind those around you how much they mean to you. To simply tell someone, “hey, I appreciate you + am glad you are in my life”. Life is incredibly too fragile, too short, too unpredictable to not.

Sappy post over, let’s get to some fun outfit ideas and small gift ideas! I shared this fun red + pink wrap dress on Instagram recently and it would a FAB option. The fit is so girly with cute puff sleeve! And these neutral heels are a new under $100 find I am currently loving. This would also be a fun Spring wedding option!

If brights are not your thing, this neutral tone long sleeve dress would be fun! It’s well priced and the fit is super comfy. I love the cute ruffle detailing too! I paired it with a neutral heel, but if you wanted to snazzy it up for Valentines, you could do a bright pink heel.

Here are a ton more ideas. From casual heart adorned sweatshirts to a simple red bodysuit- there is an outfit option in here for everyone. Plus I included lots of little gift ideas too. I love gifting my mom and sister a little something!

Valentines Day Outfit and Gifts

Whatever your holiday might include, I just hope its fun! Even if it’s a night in on the couch watching movies, I hope you enjoy. Colby and I actually started dating on Valentines day, so we will be out and about cheers-ing to that and to all the lovey things for sure!

Happy Shopping!

New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas

New Year’s Eve is less than two away, do you know what you are wearing? Well I am pretty sure if you follow me and read this blog, you know my sequin loving self  has some ideas for you! I love my glam, glitz and sparkle year round, but NYE is the official day when it’s 110% acceptable and expected.

One of my top picks for the night is this amazing off the shoulder Rotate dress. It’s the perfect mix of comfy, festive and just fun. I love the easy fit, the long sleeves and the mega sparkle! I paired it with a simple silver heel and these new, cool earrings (really into them!) You could throw a little faux fur on to keep warm or a pair of tights too.

Also, here is a round up of my most recent NYE appropriate looks from Instagram. Everything from a fabulous sequin bodysuit to a rainbow sparkle dress to a simple, any of these looks would work. I love the peplum sequin top and distressed denim for a more casual NYE!

My Holiday Party Fashion Picks

Holiday season is upon us and I could not be more excited! If you know me, you know I LOVE this time of year and I also LOVE dressing up. I basically use this time of year as an excuse to kick up my already extra-ness!

In the past few weeks, I have starting posting some holiday party ready looks on my Instagram & I spent some time last night shopping around for more so I wanted to share those finds with you guys. First, let’s discuss this strong shoulder ALC dress I posted today! It’s velvet, metallic adorned and is legit so comfy! If it’s super cold where you live, you could throw on a fun black tight and some boots or a pump to make it more weather friendly. To me, this dress just screams festive night out!

Now onto this collage of my most recent fanciness on Insta. I LOVE me some sparkle and this is the best time of year to wear it all! My best seller last week was the rainbow sparkle wrap dress I wore in Vegas. I highly recommend that mini! It’s really comfy, not itchy (as some sequin pieces can be) and just FUN. Perf for NYE! I won’t discuss each look since that’s boring, but I do want to mention the super fun peplum sequin top I wore with jeans for date night a few weeks ago. It’s a great option for those who want to be holiday-ish but aren’t super girly or want to be casual. Its well priced ($105) and runs true to size.

Some Of My Recent Party Ready Looks

And last, now onto allllllll my other finds! If I could, I would buy all of these. I wish I was kidding, but nothing makes me happier than something sparkly or festive! I shared some accessories too.
