Spring {Dress}ing

Dressing for spring weather can be at times impossible. Last week I spent half the day with the heater on in my car and the other half with the windows down enjoying the awesome weather. We all know spring temps are crazy so why not add in a few dresses like this one to solve your problem. Old Navy has always been a favorite of mine but lately (the past couple of years or so) they’ve been killing it with trendy affordable (and super cute) clothing. This dress and these shoes are both affordable and effortless (easy decision, right?).

I have a couple of concerts on the calendar in the next few of months so you better believe I’ll be repeating this look for one of them. Hopefully I’ll have a TAN before then 🙂

Have a perfect Sunday and enjoy your week. Tomorrow is Monday and it is a chance to enjoy what you do- make the most of it! I’m excited, are you?

10 Styles to Get Your Hands On Now

1. Flare jeans – Trust me. You’ll look great and you can style them with many of the trends for this season: mules, 70’s anything, floppy hats. If you are pear shaped like me stick to a dark wash and avoid any distressing on the thigh. You want them to cover most of the shoe but not drag the ground. Opt for a chunky heeled mule or wedge to keep your legs looking long and lean!

2. Suede Skirt – One of the most exciting pieces to add to your wardrobe this season. The suede mini looks ultra chic and goes great with leggings and booties – OR style it now in warmer weather with bare legs and lace up flats.

3. 70’s – it’s time to get your groove on and snag some 70s vibes. Casual pieces are easy breezy and super groovy or a statement piece like a fabulous coat will have you stopping the show in your outfit.

4. Lace Up Shoes – I am absolutely loving the look of a lace up flat! This look also is great in a strappy heel. All eyes will be on you!

5. Camel Overcoat – Casually sling it over your shoulders for an effortless look. Camel and black mixed together is the ultimate combo for me so I can guarantee you I’ll be sporting this look all season long.

6. Leather – whether it’s shorts, a skirt, or a great moto jacket splurge on a leather piece and give yourself a little street cred. Opt for fake leather for a fraction of the price (check out H&M for great finds).

7. Long Vest – I don’t know what I was thinking when I let the perfect black vest go a few years back because it’s back ladies! Snag a long vest in a blazer material  for a chic look that goes from day to night. Looking for a more casual look? Pick a long vest in a ribbed material or gauzy fabric and pair with dark jeans and boots.

8. Mules – A chunky heel mule will make any outfit a little bit better. Instead of wearing booties everyday give this shoe a try- trust me, you’ll love the way they look and feel.

9. White – This trend was all over the runway for spring 2016. However, nothing is better than a white denim look – for fall. To keep the look chic add a dark handbag and camel, black or grey shoe. Perfection.

10. Mesh – cutouts and mesh were all over the runway this year as well so be on the lookout to add this touch to your next outfit. Whether it’s a mesh accent on a dress for date night or a mesh tunic (below) you will look great adding this texture to your outfit. Add leggings and boots to the look below to stay warm and cozy this fall and winter.

Fashionable Under $50

Depending on your style preferences one thing remains constant for the majority of us out there: we love a great deal. I personally love the style choices of an affordable shop. Today I’m talking about Ellie. Yes I used to work there and obviously it’s my favorite boutique, BUT when you can find great styles that look like they cost over $100 and can snag them for under $50 it’s a win win. 

A scalloped detail is the perfect accent for this faux suede dress. A yummy camel color looks rich and luxurious yet it’s super affordable. Dress it up with heels and loads of accessories. Or- dress it down with a wool hat, chunky heels and bangles galore. PS: this hat is marked to $14 right now! 

See how I styled it below + tell me about your favorite fashionable finds under $50!
