I’m back from SXSW and excited to share this look from the #bendelgirl Spring Blogger Guide I had the opportunity to participate in with 4 other amazing bloggers! As we transition to Spring, my wardrobe color palette is definitely starting to lighten with warmer & brighter tones. I love to start each season with a new bag and Henri Bendel is often my go-to because I can get a luxury bag without spending a fortune. This olive crossbody hobo was the perfect addition! Not only is the color a great warm neutral, but the bag is extremely roomy and will be so easy to carry with me for some of my upcoming travels!
These distressed levi jeans and white patent sneakers have been my uniform as of late, but I recently added in this flawless buffalo plaid flannel into rotation. I obviously don’t think I’m flawless, but an ode to queen Bey is always appropriate. We are officially experiencing Spring weather here in Houston and it sounds like it’s here to stay! Totally fine in my book because jeans + a simple tee + sneakers has to be my favorite outfit ever of all time.
This nude knotted cuff sweater dress has sold out multiple times on Missguided, which is why I’m just now posting this look because it’s currently back in stock in ALL sizes! It’s only $45 and the material is divine. It’s like a super soft sweatshirt material but not fleece lined, so still light weight enough for warmer days. And the peachy nude color is so yeezy 😉 For a person that lives in simple basics, the unexpected element a knot cuff brings to a look is definitely refreshing.
This week has been so insanely busy with shows & meetings here at NYFW, but I wanted to get a look up for you guys! I thought this striped sweater (that I cant find online but know it’s currently available in-stores) would be the perfect top for a casual Valentine’s Day if you’re not super into pink/red. The stripes are a light pink, red, and purple combo…so still in the holiday spirit, but not in your face pink.
From sheer mesh to solid turtlenecks, layering pieces have never been so big (and maximizing your wardrobe has never been so easy). Having something I can wear many more ways than one always helps me justify spending the money…but especially when it comes to tops. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a top and then resold it or donated it after one wear because “people already saw me in it”. Anyone else guilty of this? The older I get, the more I want to narrow down my wardrobe and start shopping smarter by investing in pieces that are higher quality and can be worn multiple ways. I love that you can wear this top by itself or layered under a dress like I’ve done here. Statement sleeves are here to stay and I’m all over it!
Serious relationship or not, I’ve always loved Valentine’s day. I’m definitely one of those hopeless romantics that loves, LOVE….like the girl that whole heartedly believes in the 5 Love Languages and makes her boyfriend read it. For me, I show my love by acts of service and receive love by words of affirmation (shocker). Basically any act of love on this V-Day (even if that was receiving flowers + a card from daddy in the years I’ve been single) gets me. Luckily I’ve found a man that gets me flowers not just on Valentines Day, but on more random days than I can count 🙂 Allow me to get a little deep with y’all today and hear our love story. Without further ado, meet my boyfriend, Kyle…
