• 5 Spring Wardrobe Essentials

    spring essentialsSpring is in full swing! I love spring fashion- bright colors, bold patterns, and a great time to try new trends you’ve been seeing around. We’ve collected 5 must have essentials that we love for our spring wardrobes.

    1. Printed Pants: Yeah for bright bold patterns on pants! We are loving the idea of pairing a floral pant with another patterned top (tip: just be sure both aren’t big patterns and that there’s one color repeated in both pieces). Do you own a pair of floral pants? Love this pair I spotted at Forever 21.spring essentials

    2. Daytime Lace: When you think of lace it’s usually for evening for bedtims, but I love the trend of lace for everyday where, especially paired down like we did here with some neutral booties. I could also see it paired with a cardigan or even a cargo shirt for a nice contrast. How killer is this lace dress Karli our stylist found?

    3. Neutral Booties: You’d be surprised how much you can wear with a pair of neutral booties. Dresses, cuffed jeans, skirts, and summer shorts all work great with them and add little bit of edge to any outfit. The most versatile footwear you can have in your closet!IMG_5680

    4.  Floral Blazer: Perfect for spring, pair it with a pair of bright pants and neutral top (or experiment mixing patterns underneath like polka dot or stripes). IMG_5912

    5.  Arm Candy. It’s all about loading up on the bangles this season and I’m personally a huge fan! Such a chic touch to any outfit, day or night. Grab a bunch in different styles, shapes, textures and colors. A pastel nail color + clutch looks great as well with any spring outfit. IMG_5626

      I have always loved “daytime lace” and have long wanted a pair of printed pants, but have just never managed to find the right pair. I love the ones pictured here!
