Hi everyone! After a long week of unfortunate events, I am here to share one of my favorite outfits as I start to (pretend) I am able to transition into spring. I purchased this pink bag from T.J Maxx and I couldn’t love it any more than I do. It’s the perfect size and the perfect shade of pink to mix with some current winter hues until it starts to get a little warmer. I incorporated my favorite oversized pink scarf and some blush heels to add additional pops of color. Lastly, I threw on the comfiest oversized sweater. I swear I have been living in this thing since I got it!
I hope you’re all having an amazing week! My week has gotten better as it goes on. On Monday, my sweet baby Ziggy (my little “chipin”) got sick and was up during the night. Then, on Tuesday, my car got stuck on ice for 40 minutes! There was no one around, so I somehow managed to get it unstuck using my floor mats. It was quite the start to the week. I am so happy tomorrow is Friday and I can use this weekend to catch up on school work before spring break in a few weeks.
I always get a little giddy when something I post is on major sale. Today just so happens to be one of those days. This sparkle collar sweater (available in cream and navy) is on major clearance! It’s super soft and comfortable. I have worn this with jeans and also dressed it up for work when I go into the office. It’s lightweight, so a tank will be needed underneath. I originally received this around the holidays, so I give you full permission to buy this in anticipation for Christmas 2015 (too soon?).
This past weekend was pretty low-key. First, I fell asleep at 9pm on Friday night (WHAT?! lol) and I loved every minute of it. I spent all day Saturday with the beautiful bride-to-be, shopping for a bridesmaid dress and catching up. I pretty much knew which dress I was going to get when we went, but it was still fun to try on a few different styles. Of course, Sundays are ALWAYS for lounging around. I’ll definitely be well-rested and ready to tackle this week. Lots on my to-do list!
Do you ever wish it was socially acceptable to wear a huge blanket outside? Isn’t it nice when fashion trends allow these types of things to come true? This is about as close as we are going to get! I am absolutely loving this plaid cape. It’s honestly like wrapping a big blanket around you that just so happens to look great in the process. It’s perfect for layering and bundling up in cold temperatures and I just couldn’t love it any more than I do. I think this would also look really cute with a belt wrapped around the waist if you like things to be a little more in-place and structured.
I wanted to keep everything simple with basic denim, black booties, and my favorite two-tone bag. These booties are from Deb Shops (which unfortunately closed), but I found the exact pact and linked them below. They are also another on of my favorites!
I hope you all had an amazing week and have an even better weekend! I am so excited because I am spending some quality time with one of my best friends and going bridesmaid dress shopping. Weddings are probably one of my favorite things ever and this will be the first of my best friends to get married. Excited would be an understatement.

PS – I am thinking about trying to include some kind of positive quote/lyrics in each blog post at the end as a little pick-me-up. I absolutely love stumbling across random positive phrases and quotes throughout the day on my social media, and would love to incorporate that into my blog! What do you think? Let me know. xo

Although the weather has been anything except spring-like, I am always looking for spring style pieces and inspiration. Today, I am teaming up with Necessary Clothing to bring you a mini spring 2015 style guide. Necessary Clothing is perfect for any girl who is in a similar position to me: looking for affordable, trendy clothes that provide both casual and more work-appropriate attire. With graduation on the horizon, I am always looking for stores that have this “dual personality”.. and it’s hard! I was impressed with Necessary Clothing’s wide range of products and highly suggest you check them out next time you are on an online-shopping binge (we all have them. It’s OK.).
A Spring Basic
This striped top will be perfect when the weather warms up a bit. It’s longer in the back than the front with some edgier slits up the sides. When I first tried this top on, the first thing I thought was “road trip!” and envisioned myself in a convertible and high-waisted shorts. A girl can dream.
If you are looking for more of a sweet top, this crochet detailed top has completely stolen my heart. I paired it with a maxi skirt, but it is honestly so versatile. It could easily be dressed up or down, depending on your plans. I love anything bright and white for spring.
Lastly, these sunnies (seen featured in yesterday’s blog post) are such a steal. Even when it’s cold, the sun still manages to peek out here from time to time, so I found myself reaching for these since the day I received them! I love the pop of color and I love that these come in so many color options.
I hope you all enjoyed this spring 2015 style guide! Be sure to check out Necessary Clothing - I promise you won’t be disappointed (especially in the amazing dresses and shoes…the $5 ground shipping helps too).
Hope you’re all having an amazing day! xo
