RUFFLED UP





The temperatures are finally heating up and spring is fully underway, so it's time to put away those all black sweaters and pull out something with a pop of color. I decided to really switch it up from my normal, understated looks in favor of this pink sweater with dramatic tiered sleeves.

I originally saw a similar sweater on fashion bloggers Blair Eadie and one of the sisters of Yin 2My Yang. Their sweater was a more expensive version from Revolve that quickly sold out, but I found this dupe on SheIn for only $17. I was a little worried about ordering from this online shop after seeing some bloggers post negative reviews of their orders taking weeks to arrive and the products fitting terribly, but this was not my experience. My order came in 7 days, right on time, and the sweater fits like a glove. Sometimes, I find that styles that may not still be around next season are better to save on, so I'm always looking for a cheap yet great quality option, and that's exactly what I found on SheIn. This site actually has a lot of great options and almost everything is under $20 – it's perfect for those of us ballin' on a budget. (No, this is not a sponsored post).

I paired the overstated sweater with a pair of laid-back Paige boyfriend jeans and my favorite pair of black studded sandals. I'm seriously going to be wearing these shoes all summer, I'm obsessed! They are stylish with the silver details but have a short enough heel that they are comfortable to wear all day. Unfortunately, they are out of stock but I will work on finding a similar pair for all of you!

BAND TEE

Band tee's are a huge trend right now and there are so many ways to wear them! I've posted before about how I styled by Yeezus concert t-shirt, with simple black jeans and a vintage denim jacket, but here I switched it up a bit. There are endless ways you can dress up or dress down a simple concert tee, it's one of my favorite looks for when I'm in a rush!




I grew up listening to Nirvana, my dad was a big fan and we still have a poster of Kurt Cobain in our basement. Even though Kurt Cobain passed away more than two decades ago, his music has still remained relative to this day. I've been looking for the perfect Nirvana t-shirt for years and finally found this one in the men's department at H&M (here). It's a super soft t-shirt, and since it's technically for men, I got it in an extra small. It's actually on sale now for only $10 so grab it while you can!

I paired this tee with a pair of straight-leg light denim jeans (similar here). I normally only wear dark colored skinny jeans but have recently been really into the light washed straight-leg look. I ordered these Levi's too – I feel like they have a Kendall Jenner vibe and could be worn with a simple t-shirt or a silk tank top for a fancier event.

Since I wore light-washed jeans, I paired this look with a leather jacket to make it a bit less casual (similar here). I threw on my favorite Vince Camuto booties, which are no longer available, but I love this TopShop pair too. To top off the look, I threw on these Ray-Ban's and this belt from Urban Outfitters. 

I'm shooting a few new looks tomorrow and planning a packing guide for spring break, so be sure to check back next week!

FLORAL BOMBERS

Hi, loves! I recently got this bomber after being inspired by my favorite bloggers, Somewhere Lately, and absolutely love it! It has me dreaming of spring & warmer weather and I love the sheerness to it, it makes it more unique.



My bomber is from Lucy Paris and it's a great alternative to other popular bombers right now (shop here). Since it's still winter, I paired it with an all black look — I'm wearing this Brandy Melville bodysuit and these TopShop jeans. To top it off and tie in the pink flowers on the bomber, I pulled out my Steve Madden velvet booties which I'm hoping to get as much use out of before it gets too warm (here). 

I loved this look for Valentine's Day, but you can easily take it from winter to summer with a dress or lighter colored jeans. If you're iffy about a sheer bomber and are looking for something a bit warmer, I love this floral bomber too. 

Leave a comment letting me know what you would like to see in my next post, I would love to hear what you think!

SEEING STARS

One of the very few benefits of winter in the Midwest is that when the water freezes over, we can go sliding across the frozen lake. Even though it was almost 50° today, I still dared to step out on the ice in my new Brandy Melville sweater (exact link here).


I'm absolutely obsessed with this new sweater. I've only had it for two weeks and have already gotten so much use out of it. I paired it with my black TopShop jeans (exact link here) and a pair of ASOS booties (here). I normally am a huge fan of TopShop jeans, and I do love the way these fit, but for some reason in pictures they don't photograph as black which is super annoying! I'll be keeping my eye out for a better pair of black jeans.

I paired my star sweater with a Free People ear crawler and studs. They are no longer online but I found a similar pair here. The ear crawler is super fun and adds a little something extra to an otherwise casual look. It's a different take on my normally very simple gold jewelry. 

Exciting things are coming soon, check back next week to see what I have in store!
