Goodbye Winter? – HELLO SPRING ..

It’s such a strange transition right now with Spring. There’s no more snow but the weather is still in the 30s so I find it challenging to wear cute pieces in the current moment.

I am still in my cozy knits because Winter doesn’t want to move – at least I am finding good sweater deals like this one from F21. It looks more expensive than what I paid – which is always a plus!

How is the Winter/Spring transition coming along where you’re from?

White Denim Diaries 2

I utilize my white jeans a lot throughout the year. I know most people stray away from it because white is hard to care for and believe me, it can be hard to bleach too if not done right away. So I’ve learned to wear it for the days I am not doing anything labor intensive as to not destroy them.

Now I am able to pair them with fun and color filled pieces. In this post, I brought out this moto jacket. Though Spring is here, the temperature transition is in between that strange stage of chilly but slightly warm. So I have a lot of transitional jackets ready to come out and play! And what about shoes? I can finally put away my boots for the year and wear pretty flats and heels. These blush tone mules were screaming to come out and here they are.

What are you excited to wear for this season?

Pink Trench Coat

Spring is in the air! It’s been wonderful without snow or rain the last week and the temps have risen 20 degrees so I thought it was time to pull out some color! I paired it here with white denim and stripes (so appropriate for the warming weather).

Winter Knit

Another snow day, another cute sweater. How big is your sweater collection? I found this one at Target but rarely shop there because they don’t carry petites. This sweater fit pretty well though I must say. So I may venture out there for sales.

Ways to Wear a Cardigan

The sun is shining which means the mood is A – MA – ZING! Now let’s look at this cardigan. It has been loved for a couple seasons but is one of my favorite pieces. You can dress it up, like how you see above or with jeans and a tee to complete any outfit. Unfortunately it is no longer available so I have listed two alternatives below.

Cardigans in general make great pieces. They work just like blazers and jackets. Are you a cardi fan? Share your thoughts below.

Organza Leopard

Yes you are seeing it right! I am indeed wearing leopard .. again. My wardrobe consists of a few pieces in this print. This piece is quite special though because it is made from organza. It’s such absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to style it many other ways.

Thank you for reading. I will see you in my next post.

Sweater Dress

I live in a place where the snow stays past its time. And though it’s pretty, I would love Spring Weather when it says ‘Spring Arrival’ as it states on the Calendar. But that will probably never happen so in turn, I have learned to cling on to sweaters until late March and early April.

The sweater “dress” in this post is actually a tunic, but because I am smaller then the average person, it works so well as a cozy dress.

How long does Winter stay for you? Do you enjoy this season or would move asap?

Blair Waldorf Inspired

I was completely inspired by Blair Waldorf when I put this outfit together. And it made me miss the Gossip Girl days. I love how this skirt makes such a statement even though it has the traditional colors of black and white. I paired it with a cardigan that is riddled with crystal buttons. And of course it wouldn’t be Blair approved without a beret.

Were you a GG fan? Or don’t know what that is? Let me know below. 😉

Must Have Jacket

Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE needs a good leather jacket in their wardrobe. It will instantly make your outfit 10 times better. I have four jackets and counting, all in different colors.

Like they say .. “I thought that my life would suddenly improve if I got a leather jacket. And I was 100% totally right.” So go get yourself one stat! ;D
