Classic Blue

Happy Friday you guys! This is the start of some Easter/spring dress options for you. This sweet baby blue with white detailed number is of course from Old Navy. I paired it with nude Nine West heels from TJ Maxx and my Coach bag. This is a great look for the holiday, especially is you are going to church, a family gathering, or somewhere you need to dress a little more modest. This dress is super comfortable and easy to dress up or down just by changing out the shoes and the bag. Probably my favorite place to shop for spring and summer dresses is definitely Old Navy, of course super affordable pieces that are well made and fun! *Fun side note for you, Old Navy gave me my first job as a sales associate at 16 and I can tell you that the pieces and quality have only gotten better since then!* I very much appreciate that there is something there for everyone! 

What are you all doing for Easter? Do you want to see more holiday related looks or recipes? Let me know below!

Denim Days

Spring and summer are upon us but there is nothing better than a cute top and jeans for any and every occasion! As much as I love dresses and skirts I'm a sucker for a great pair of jeans. My favorite jeans tend to be anything Old Navy especially the style you see here, High Rise Rockstar. They are the most comfortable everyday denim that go with everything! I paired it with this off the shoulder Loft top heels from Target and Bag from Bloomingdale's. I love petite details as well and am obsessed with the sleeves on this top it gives this understated look a little something extra! Just a great look to always have in your closet for going out for happy hour or a shopping day!

Walking Into Spring

Happy Monday everyone! As we start moving from February to March I can't help but start pulling out my spring colors and accessories. Here in Florida the weather is back to normal and we are already gearing up for beach trips and pool days since it looks like summer will be here soon for us, therefore I'm enjoying our few weeks of "spring" that we get here. I love spring and summer for the colors and prints! One of my favorite colors is royal blue a great transition from winter to spring, not to bold just yet! I've paired this blue dress with a pink bag and heels keeping the look simple but still fun and very spring. 

The dress is from Kohl's, the bag is Michael Kors, and the shoes are Halogen from Nordstrom Rack. As I've mentioned before I love a great deal and will occasionally splurge on designer items but I always grab them when there's a sale! Hope you all love this look! Let me know what you like to wear in the springtime!
