Spring Shopbob Sale || My Top 50 Items

I love gearing up for spring! Warmer weather, brighter clothes, sandals, lighter jackets, fun jewelry, what’s not to love. The spring Shopbop sale is in full swing and I put together my favorite items. They are selling out quick so if you see something you like add it to your cart right away! I placed my first order a few days ago and some of those items have already sold out!  After making this collage, I placed another order because there were more things I wanted. I know I won’t keep it all but I love an updated wardrobe for a new season.

50 items is a lot but I just couldn’t narrow it down. Some of these things I already have and are tried and true. Some I want but have no need for it and others I have ordered and are on the way! There is quite a bit of denim so I gave it it’s own category. My go-to brand of jeans has been Frame for years. I I once loved a style so much I bought it in 4 different colors and wore them in almost ever blog post. This pair of Frame denim I have in a lighter wash and the distressing on the bottom is perfect (see my DIY on how to add hem deconstruction to your jeans). As far as new denim for spring, I am obsessing over the two-tone look, I love it so much I added this this white and blue denim and this color-blocked denim. Before our All-Star trip I ordered this pair of two-tone pants and got so many compliments. Unfortunately, those have already sold out or I would have added them to the list! That pair is available here, though! The last pair I want to point out is these white denim joggers. These seem like the perfect pant to wear this spring when you feel like wearing sweatpants but know you shouldn’t!

Next up we have shoes. Originally I was going to mix my shoe choices in with accessories but then I realized I had chosen too many. Of course no one needs all these shoes but when I take a look at all of them I see some trends. My favorite being the croc shoes. The green pair I am swooning over, it comes in black too. This brown croc option is really pretty too, I love that it has a bit of a higher heel and the thickness of the heel will allow you to walk in the grass, perfect for an outdoor wedding or shower. I want to update my black summer sandal and I can’t decide between the black croc mule or the black leather thong sandal. I already ordered these sandals and these sandals (second guessing this option right now) and I really hope they are comfortable, I love the jewels on them. They are scheduled to arrive Wednesday so I’ll keep you posted! These flip-flops are basic but so amazing. I ordered a pair every  year or so because I wear them so often. I’m not a fan of wearing rubber flip-flops out and about- those are for the pool and beach but make them leather and you can wear them anywhere!

Time for jewelry and accessories! I will continue to layer my jewelry, mix silver and gold but now I will add bright colors like this bracelet. The beach bag I bought last month is no longer available but they do have a rose gold version I added that I think would be so fun for the beach and pool. I’m also stocking up on sunglasses, I can’t remember the last time I bought new sunglasses and now I can get them on sale! I have these colorful beaded bracelets and they are so easy to slip on and add some color to your outfit but I am really excited for this mama bracelet to arrive on Wednesday. I’m also updating my white crossbody to this pretty white bag. Lastly, I can’t forget to mention these earrings. You can loop the little circle at the end of the chain onto the hoop for a different style which is so neat.

Now the clothes. Putting these collages together and writing this blog post took me much longer than I expected so I apologize for delivering my sale items so sporadically. I found the cutest little white dress that would be perfect for any brides bridal shower. There is also a stunning yellow dress that would be perfect for a wedding guest, this dress could work for an outdoor wedding or an indoor wedding. I ordered these tie-dye sweat pants and the matching sweatshirt and I was so bummed that the sweatshirt has already sold out.

How To Wear Plaid During Summer

Plaid is often on winter fabrics like flannel and wool and is associated with colder months. Last year I got this one shoulder ruffled top and wasn’t sure how often I would wear it. The fabric is light and perfect for summer but the print is dark and works better for fall. Well, last week I figured out how to make plaid work perfectly for summer.

The biggest factor for making plaid work during summer is material. The material of your plaid needs to be a light fabric, stay away from flannel, wool and leather and look for cotton, linen, silk and other light fabrics. You also need to consider the material of the rest of your outfit. Light washes, rattan shoes or bag, colored jewelry are things that style your outfit for summer. 

The Breakdown:
I wore this top in the winter with a pair of black cropped denim pants, white booties and a leather jacket tossed over my shoulders. Six months later and 40 degrees warmer I was ready to style my plaid top again. Light washed denim, raffia sandals, a woven bag and pink accessories made the plaid perfect for summer.

Spring Style for Cold Weather

spring style for cold weather Daffodiles and tullips have come and gone, the sun is shining more, spring is officially here and….. it’s still cold. It can be hard to dress for spring when temperatures are below 60 degrees. You want to reach for that dark colored puffy coat, knitted scarf and boots but then again, it’s almost spring!

To dress for spring when it’s cold you can still wear your chunky sweaters but choose a bright or pastel color like this beautiful lilac sweater I’m wearing. Spring colors in thicker fabrics are the perfect thing to wear this time of year. I tend to shy away from denim in the spring and summer since its ususally warmer.

This leopard skirt can transition through all the seasons. In the fall I’d wear this skirt with a graphic tee and a leather jacket with booties. In the winter I’d wear this with a turtleneck and a blazer or a denim jacket and boots. This is my spring look with pumps and a bright colored sweater and for the summer, I’ll wear sandals and a knotted tee. I love a versatile item of clothing! spring style for cold weather spring style for cold weather  spring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherspring style for cold weatherThe Breakdown:

How fun is this lilca sweater with this leopard skirt. These skirts are everywhere on the streets and can be worn with heels just as easily as it can be worn with sneakers. You actually could sub these heels in this outfit for white sneakers or for those chunky sneakers that are rising in popularity.
