Dark Florals




Floral Dress: Zara- SOLD OUT but similar dress found here. Booties: Alice and Olivia via Marti and Liz Shoes. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff via Nordstrom Rack. Suede Moto Jacket: Jou Jou via Marshalls. Sunglasses: Rayban via Belk found here.


With Spring right around the corner, I have been brainstorming and daydreaming of beautiful Spring/Summer pieces to begin to add to my wardrobe. We are in that weird time of the year here in North Carolina where the days are unusually warm, which leaves you standing in front of your closet with absolutely nothing to wear. Transitioning into Spring can seem daunting and hopeless but I'm here to tell you that it doesn't have to be that way if you simply remember 2 things! Layers and patterns/color!

Fun layers and Spring patterns/colors can be your bridge to full-out Spring wardrobe. Layers give you endless options. I love throwing a motto jacket over my shoulders with the option to take it off if I get too warm. A motto jacket is chic in every way and is sure to polish any look you have in your closet. I love playing with patterns and colors! Don't be afraid to embrace florals, because they are here to stay. If you are drawn to more darker shades, then this dress is perfect! I knew I had to have it as soon as I laid eyes on it. I've definitely been getting my fair wear out of these Alice and Olivia camel sock booties that I scored for a steal from Marti and Liz Shoes here in Charlotte. These shoes are killer!!! I would wear them everyday if I could.

Do you find it difficult to transition into Spring? What pieces are your go-to to make the transition?

Blush



Blush Coat: Zara found here. Blush Knotted Sweater: ASOS found here. Tractr Jeans: Nordstrom Rack found here. Camel Sock Booties: Alice & Olivia via Marti & Liz Shoes found here.



After the holidays is the perfect time of year to purchase a great piece of outerwear. I had a lot of time off work post holiday, and spent a good amount of that time scouring the internet for the best sales. There is no surprise that ZARA had some of the best pieces for amazing prices! I scored this amazing creme coat with blush detail and I'm so glad that I snagged it.

 If you are like me, and follow a ton of bloggers then you know that the Teddy Coat has been a huge trend this winter season. This piece reminds me of the Teddy Coat in a less plush way. The shearling and fur detail at the bottom are such a chic combination. I love that this piece isn't like anything that all the other bloggers are wearing! Don't be afraid to try trends in different interpretations! I love that about fashion. You have the ability to make any trend your own. 

There are always 3 things that I keep in mind when purchasing a nice piece of outwear. Color, versatility, and comfort!

Color: There are so many fun coats this season!! From faux fur, to bright, fun colors, and neutrals. I, myself am drawn to the neutral palette (blushes,camels, cremes, grays) as these colors are easily transitional between seasons and over the years. Finding a neutral piece of quality outwear can last you a good 5 years. 

Versatility: There are so many variations and styles of coats. They can range from dressy to really casual. Your outerwear selections all depend on your everyday style. For me, I spend most of my days in the office and in dressy/casual pieces for work so I like to have something that will match that same vibe but could also be dressed down! Versatility in outwear is super important! Make sure your selection is aligned with your everyday style and you will be sure to get your fair wear out of whatever piece you chose.

Comfort: Comfort is key in wearing anything! This coat literally feels like I am wearing a shearling blanket and I love it. The first time that I wore it to work, I seriously debated just keeping it on the whole entire day. It's just that good. 

What are some of your favorite outwear trends this season?
