I’ve been loving the split hem pants trend lately! It’s an elevated way to wear leggings that’s really flattering and practical. I tried on several pairs before I found some that worked for me. I’m 5’4″ with shorter legs so this pair in the 7/8 length are perfect. They also come in regular length if you have longer legs. I’ve been wearing them weekly… sometimes multiple times over the past few weeks. Here’s eight ways to wear them
We just got back from a weekend in Paso Robles spent wine tasting! It was only a two day getaway and I managed to pack really light. I brought only the pieces above (minus the hat because I forgot it, and the boyfriend denim jacket). I wore everything I packed except for the booties and wanted to share five weekend outfits I made from this mini capsule.
outfit 1 (roadtrip outfit): lounge set, caridgan, sneakers, leather tote
outfit 2 (night time): black waffle knit top, black jeans, faux fur mules
outfit 3 (daytime wine tasting): denim jacket, plaid dress, yellow cross body (sneakers or booties)
outfit 4 (night time): beige collared sweater, black jeans (booties or faux fur mules)
outfit 5 (travel outfit): black maxi dress, denim jacket, yellow cross body bag
Now that it’s mid-March I’m ready for the weather to warm up and to wear all my favorite spring things! I love the shift of seasons and the start of spring is always one of my favorites. Lately I’ve been going through my closet, purging what I no longer wear and trying to take note of any gaps to fill. I recently went through my sandals and wanted to share some spring trends I’m loving right now.
I got this studded strappy pair last spring and have worn them a ton. They’re comfortable and go with everything – sundresses, shorts, jeans, etc. They’re back again this year and I’m also loving this slide version.
Designer inspired slides
I’ve had this style of shoes for the past 4 years and always go back to them. I recently picked up a white pair and wore them quite a bit in the desert a few weeks ago. They’re neutral, comfortable and go with so much. They also come in black and tan.
At the start of 2020 who knew a face mask would be the hottest accessory of the year?! It still seems crazy, but here we are. Over the past few months I’ve gotten used to making sure I have a mask with me if I leave the house. I keep at least one in my glovebox in my car and another in my purse. Between that and washing them after each use, I’ve tried to stock up on as many as possible. Luckily my mom’s been making them to give to friends and family, so I have several she’s made. But since they’re not going anywhere for the foreseeable feature, I wanted to share the cutest and most fashionable masks I’ve seen online.
I’m all about animal prints and have a few different leopard print masks, but this snake print one caught my eye. It has neutral colors and would go with just about anything.
Speaking of neutral colors, I love this one. It’s called golden zebra and I think it’s so pretty!
I’m thinking this bold floral print one will be great for fall. I love the big orange blooms!
I love this one to remind everyone of what’s under the mask. 🙂
I really love this blue zebra print for summer and they come in a 2 pack so you can have a spare.
Here’s a great 3-pack of black and white neutral prints.
Thank you so much for reading and following, don’t forget to wear your mask!
I know I’m not alone saying I’m glad March is over. What a weird month. For me personally it started so happy, I was planning Crosby’s 3rd Birthday party and starting to plan Wilder’s 1st as well. All of that changed just a couple of days before Crosby’s birthday, and the rest of the month was one big blur of days blending together. It seemed pretty endless and now April does as well. All that aside I wanted to share my top 5 sellers in March. I plan to keep things as normal as possible around here right now and hope that’s okay with you!
Aside from my #1 seller last month, everything was in the fashion category. It’s always interesting to see what does well.
Outdoor dining table – mentioned in my post the other day and still currently 40% off. This is a great outdoor table!
Open weave sweater – the perfect sweater for spring. You can layer a cami under so it’s not see through. Or you can layer it over dresses and tops. It’s also 40% off right now.
Taupe espadrilles – these come in 8 colors and are the perfect height for every day wear. They’re under $100 and super comfortable.
Levi’s 501 skinny jeans – one of my all time favorite pairs for jeans. I’ve had these for over two years now and continue to wear them multiple times a week. They’re under $100 and great quality but are not stretchy denim. Some people reccomend sizing up but I take them in my regular size and they fit perfectly.
Woven slides – I pursed these during the Shopbop sale early last month. They’re a great neutral sandal that I can’t wait to wear more. I think they run a little narrow but I was still able to wear my normal size.
As always, thank you so much for reading and following. Your support means so much to me!
Shopbop is having their spring sale now through March 8th. It’s one of my favorite times to stock up on items that rarely (if ever) go on sale. And the more you spend, the more you save.
You know how much I love Gorjana, and all of her pieces are included in the sale. Some of my favorites I wear all the time are this dainty star necklace, adjustable bracelet, coin pendant necklace (pictured above), lock chain necklace, gold huggies, coin necklace, and crescent pendant (I’ve had this one for about 5 years and continue to wear it all the time).
My two current favorite pairs of high-waisted jeans are both included in the sale. The Agolde Jamie jeans (left) and Levi’s 501 Skinny (right). Both pairs are lighter wash, slightly distressed and can be worn tons of different ways.
We’re going out Friday night to celebrate a friends birthday and I’m debating between two dresses in my closet. I’ve been wanting to wear both! The first is this sequin fringe dress from BB Dakota (pictured above), I love how unique it is. The second is this vegan leather dress from Rebecca Taylor, it’s such a great LBD and I know I’ll continue to wear it and love it for years.
I’ve always been obsessed with swimwear and have more bikinis than I could ever wear. I love buying new ones every year and this neon green smocked bikini (top, bottoms) is my latest that I cannot wait to wear. I’m going to Tulum in a couple months and will definitely be bringing it. I also just got this leopard top and matching shorts that’s a really cute alternative to a coverup. Plus my favorite pom pom coverup is included in the sale and comes in 3 different colors.
*these sunglasses have been a favorite of mine for the past 5 years.
Odds & Ends:
- I wear these spanx faux leather leggings a few times a week and love them so much. They’re incredibly flattering and can even be dressed up.
- I love Clare V. bags in the spring and summer, this tote is one of my favorites.
- Another spring/summer staple of mine is this clutch from Cult Gaia.
- I’ve almost purchased these white mules so many times, I think they’re so versatile, they also come in snake print.
