One of my favorite things to do during the summer is to stroll around our little shopping district + hit up the canal with friends. On the weekends, lots of people have the same idea, but somehow it's still relaxing despite the crowd.
Truth be told, I pulled this look together in about 15 minutes. I'd just gotten home, didn't have time to shower and was kind of a hot mess. But that's the beautiful thing about maxis, right? They have this uber impressive ability to mask the fact that we're so not prepared to go out in public yet. Love, love love it.
This Lauren Conrad number is at the top of my list right now, mainly because of its super fun ombre look. I also love that it's simple enough for a casual dinner, yet fancy enough to even wear to a wedding. Versatility is a key component when I'm out shopping for clothes. If I can't picture myself wearing it on more than one occasion, odds are it's not gonna happen (unless it's on sale...then it might be justified...).
I'm also really into layering jewelry right now, especially bracelets. They're easy to mix and match, and they're another element that I find helps me look more put together than I really am. #winning
With the athleisure trend in full swing, I'm really vibing on casual pieces lately. I finally invested in a pair of Adidas sneakers a few months ago, which have really stepped up my game. And I don't even care that everybody and their mother has a pair at this point, because they're SO. DAMN. COMFORTABLE.
Seriously, just try 'em on. This pair is loaded with memory foam, so it's legit like you're walking on a cloud. I straight wear them at least a few days per week, simply because they're so comfy and go with pretty much anything.
Thank the freakin' Lord, spring is finally in the air. Winter has been treacherous around these parts, but it was (almost) all worth it when I got to pull out my favorite polka dotted number this past weekend. I'm already feeling a major purging of my winter closet coming on, and I absolutely can't wait to break out more of my spring pieces.
In the spirit of the warmer weather, I want to share with you guys five trends I am loving this season in hopes of helping you perfect your spring wardrobe fast. I swear, just grab the below essentials, and you'll be up to speed in no time.
