Early Spring Favorites

spring inspiration under $100

 1. Revolve top | 2. Revolve jumpsuit | 3. Revolve earrings | 4. Nordstrom hat | 5. Soludos espadrilles | 6. Revolve bracelet | 7. Quay Australia sunglasses

I am loving the spring-like weather we’ve been having here lately!  It’s perfect for long walks on the beach, hikes through fun trails and bike rides around town!  With spring approaching, I’m ready to shrug off heavy layers and refresh my wardrobe with light and airy pieces.  This ruffled sleeve top is so pretty, I love the feminine details of lace and scalloped trim edges.  A little bralette or bandeau would look perfect underneath.  Jumpsuits have been on-trend for a while now, and I love wearing them because they are so easy to style and comfortable.  This one is a great neutral color made from 100% cotton, so you know it’s going to be super comfy, and can easily go from a day look with simple jewelry and flats, to a night look with heels and statement jewelry.  The charming details of these fringe tassel earrings and beaded bracelets are perfect to accessorize any spring outfit.  If you love accessorizing with hats, a great one for spring is this classic panama hat to compliment any outfit.  This spring we’ll be seeing various lace-up styles and I’m particularly loving the wedge espadrille sandal.  It has both height and comfort and the neutral color adds a chic accent.

Hopefully Mother Nature isn’t just teasing us and the transition from winter to spring won’t take an eternity!

1. Topshop top | 2. Millianna earrings | 3. Sonia Kashuk eye shadow | 4. Topshop skirt | 5. Sole Society clutch | 6. Essie nail polish | 7. Vince Camuto heels

New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and I’m so excited to get dressed up!  I am loving all the metallics for holiday parties this season and this skirt from Topshop is one of my favorites!  The silver and pleats make it perfect for a party-chic look.  I also love how it’s high-waisted and can be paired with a fancy crop top like this one for an ultimate eye-catching look.  These dazzling t-strap heels with crystals and beads add an extra fancy feel for a special night celebrating the New Year.  Accessories always complete an outfit and these crystal drop earrings are so elegant along with this glitter clutch.  To make your eyes sparkle all night, add these shimmering shades from this eye shadow palette in the color Show Stoppers.  For holiday parties I always like switching up my nude shades of nail polish for something more bold like this one in the color Over The Edge.  With a NYE look like this you are sure to shine all night long!

Holiday Party Inspiration: Crochet Lace + Velvet

holiday party outfit

1. Topshop top | 2. Marchesa earrings | 3. Natasha Couture clutch | 4. Topshop Skirt | 5. Essie nail polish | 6. YSL eyeshadow | 7. Vince Camuto heels

It’s that time of year again for holiday parties and picking out fabulous outfits to wear!  I’m really excited to share this holiday look with you!  I decided to go with a less traditional black or red dress that is typically seen during this time of year.  Although I do love a good little black dress, or red dress, I also think it’s fun to make a statement with an elegant looking outfit like this one.  This skirt is one of my favorites for a holiday party.  It’s velvet, high waisted, pleated and the slate color is just lovely.  It will also look great with a chunky sweater and booties.  I decided to pair it with this stunning body suit for a sleek look.  The crochet lace detail at the neckline is so feminine and gives an overall elegant appearance.  These satin strappy sandals add the perfect touch and is very flattering with it’s ultra-slender heel.  I didn’t want to accessorize too much with jewelry since there’s a lot going on in this outfit already, so I chose these pretty double-drop earrings which compliments this look beautifully.  No holiday party outfit is complete without a little clutch, and the beaded lace trim on this one could not be more perfect with it’s elegant appeal.  I love incorporating colors of my outfit (within reason) into my nail polish and eye makeup.  This Essie polish in the shade Coat Couture is just perfect, the purplish hue goes great with the color of the skirt.  If you’re looking to take your eye makeup up a notch, this Yves Saint Laurent eye shadow palette in Surrealiste has richly pigmented colors for a beautiful sultry eye makeup look, and it lasts for 12 hours so you can party all night!

Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a nice weekend!  I’m really liking the grey hues this season and excited to share a few items that I found at Nordstrom, which is currently having a fall clearance sale with select items up to 40% off, going on now through November 13th.  I love the patchwork on this Topshop sweater, the color palette pairs well with these Citizens of Humanity skinny jeans in the color shadow, which is a nice light grey wash.  These block heel booties look great with everything and have a little bit of stretch for a comfy fit.  This braided crossbody bag is a great slate color that can be worn with many different looks.  These tassel earrings, mesh strap watch and cat eye sunglasses compliment the look of this outfit well, and the mauve color of this nail polish is just perfect!  Head on over to Nordstrom and see what you can find on sale for the upcoming holiday!

Blush Tones: H&M

Blush Tones with H+M

1. Sweater | 2. Blouse | 3. Earrings | 4. Jeans | 5. Belt | 6. Watch | 7. Booties | 8. Sunglasses | 9. Bag

Happy Monday!  The weather is so warm here today that it almost feels like summer again!  Days like this are always so tricky in deciding what to wear.  It’s chilly in the morning, then hot by afternoon.  I like wearing layers for this type of weather, it’s key to making sure you’re not sweating all day in your clothes.  This look from H&M is perfect for those in-between weather days.  H&M is one of my favorite brands, they have fashionable and quality items at great prices that won’t put a dent in your wallet.  This cable knit sweater is so soft and a great beige color that can be worn with anything.  For my sweaters, I like to go up one size for an oversized feel.  How pretty is this blouse?!  I love the blush tone color and how feminine it is.  The ruffled collar and flounced sleeves are the perfect details for a chic look.  These high-waisted jeans are crafted from stretch denim and have distressed details which give a little edge to this feminine outfit.  They are so versatile and look great paired with these suede ankle boots.  The neutral beige color can be worn with so many different looks (dresses, skirts, etc.) and is a definite staple in any wardrobe.  I love accessories, the blush tones of these earrings, watch, belt and handbag really bring the whole outfit together.  You don’t have to spend a fortune to look stylish, and this is easily attainable with H&M!
