Whatcha Wearing Wednesday: Stripes and Leopard for Spring

Stripes and leopard. It's all about mixing prints and patterns and it isn't as hard as you think. Spring is a great time to experiment. Think about matching a floral pencil skirt with a stripe shirt. Still not sure? Here's an easier way. Start with neutral colors like black, white and navy if you are feeling skittish and work from there. I took my neutral leopard heels and paired them with my tried and true black ankle pants and a new striped shirt I picked up from J.Crew Factory. The stripe shirt gets and update with the ruffle added to the sleeve. Ruffles are really big this spring. Wearing a navy blue multi-strand necklace adds a hint of color while also staying in the neutral zone. I felt like this look was both fresh and classic.  It's updated with the ruffles and has an … [Read more...]

Blue Stripes & White Denim

*Disclosure: Compensation is received through affiliate links.  All opinions are 100% my own. The rare sunny days we have had lately have made me yearn even more for light colors like blue stripes & white denim. Cooler temps prevail making long sleeves and denim are still needed daily. I love pairing it with my latest trench too. Excuse the lighting on the photo.  The rain has cast a crazy gloom over anything that no lighting can fix.

Spring is in the Air

Just when you think old man winter has settled in for good and may never leave you spot the crocuses you planted last fall making an appearance. Spring is in the air!

Spring Road Trip Style

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.  TMC was compensated for this post.  Opinions are 100% my own.    I love a good road trip.  Whether it is going down to the shore in the summer to visit my parents as a family or taking the girls on a spring break trip. That last one is my personal favorite because to me, spring means road trips.  A time when you can relax, take in some new sights, see spring in full effect and get a new perspective with all that fresh air. Naturally, I believe you need to look good doing it too. I'm talking spring road trip style. I'm in love with ModCloth and their romantic road trip style.  Think soft pastels, boho chic, buttery leather jackets, fabulous boots and flowered dresses.  It's so very spring and so very refreshing.  All of it … [Read more...]

Jumpsuits Under $50

I am a sucker for a jumpsuit every time. Wide leg pants are always a weakness for me. Every time I put on a pair or a jumpsuit I feel transported to another time.  Like the Golden Age of Hollywood or maybe Studio 54.  I love the swish, the practicality and one-step style.  I've compiled a list of my favorite jumpsuits all UNDER $50! … [Read more...]

With a Cherry on Top

Now that spring is here we tend to spend a lot of time outside.  In the new place we have replaced sitting on our front stoop with reading on the porch, running around the back yard, more yard work (which I sort of love because it is another excuse to get outside) and exercising outside with bikes, runs and long walks.  It's bliss! When it comes to our middle girl, The Comedian, she may have been a fall born baby but she is all spring.  From catching caterpillars, to tucking lady bugs into jars and just plain ol' digging in the dirt it is hard to keep her inside or clean.  If I can get her off to school without a hole in her pant leg or bugs in her pockets it is an easier morning.  But just like me she has her girly moments.  She knows a cute dress when she sees one.  This sweet … [Read more...]
