Spring Steals

blue-dress-4It’s almost Summer and I have been scoring some great deals on dresses. The best part about an inexpensive dress is dressing it up with accessories and fun shoes! Everything I am wearing was under $20 each and that’s kind of awesome.

The best thing about fashion is that it can be super cheap and super over the top crazy expensive. Sure, sometimes I splurge but when I do, it’s on something I have lusted after and will take care of. But a lot of my clothing is cheap and trendy things that I don’t mind not wearing next season. I am constantly donating clothing to justify refilling my closet, but that’s the best part of being a girl, right?

Mint Julep.

One of my favorite colors is mint and every time I wear this dress, my co-workers call me a mint chip cookie. Sounds delicious to me!

I am so happy the weather is starting to get warm, I can retire those tights for a few months!

Paint Pastel Princess

pastel outfitSpring is on it’s way and with the arrival comes pastel in our closets! I am super excited about this trend because my favorite shades of colors are always light, I think it looks better with my pale skin. See this simple look we put together, I wore something very similar to work the other day!

Earrings(These earrings are flashy in an understated way- the light blue color tones it down)

Franco Sarto shoes(Shoes- Franco Sarto. These are so comfy and soft, I love the feel of these kitten heels)

outfitThis look is simple and easy to pull off, just don’t be afraid to mix your colors!

Got Me Sprung.

Spring can’t come soon enough for us! This brisk Winter weather is becoming a bit annoying in San Francisco! Every time we go outside we have to add about 3 inches of layers, we are over it. I recently took a look at what can be expected in stores for Spring and I am loving what I am seeing; I just can’t wait to get into these trends!

Stripes (I love stripes, especially when they can be brought into something elegant!)

neon(Neon is back in full force, this beautiful dress is a bit risqué but I dig it)

white(I love adding white back into my wardrobe; this long sleeved baby doll dress is adorable)

accessories(Chunky & vibrant necklaces are the perfect accessory to any simple outfit)

orange lips(Orange lips are one of my favorite makeup trends in a while)

Let’s not get it twisted, not all of Spring styles are worthy of a wear. Here are some styles we are skipping.

We can’t wait for the weather to warm up a bit so that we can wear baby doll dresses, bright colors, and put flowers in our hair.
