Spring Forward

It’s almost here ladies! The first day of Spring is March 20th so it’s time to shake off those Winter blues. Spring is literally and figuratively a breath of fresh air. The flowers start to bloom, the sun shines a little bit longer and best of all, the fashion gets a little brighter.

Color blocking is one of my favorite things to do all year round. There are endless combinations to choose from. However, Spring is one of the seasons where it comes out the most. All of the beautiful shades and colors inspire me to mix and match. Hence this look, that combines a vibrant magenta skirt with a bright aqua blouse. Classic color block at its best.

Pencil skirts are, as you all know, one of my favorite garments. So, this one from INC International Concepts was right up my alley. It’s a scuba material so it has a good amount of stretch (a necessary component). The blouse is a great staple to wear with pretty much any type of bottom.

I finished off the look with matching high heels sandals from one of my favorite places to shop for shoes, Nordstrom Rack! They have such an amazing selection with high quality shoes at a fraction of the price. This is the first of, I’m sure, many color block looks for Spring and beyond.

Pur-suit

One trend that I have started to see quite often lately is pastel suiting. I think that we all know by now that work wear is not what it used to be. Work wear used to function exclusively for the office. It was made up of darker colors like black and navy, and it was meant to look professional and serious. Nowadays, suiting has taken on a whole new meaning and has gone from the office, to drinks and beyond. Vibrant colors, prints and even embellishments have marked this new wave of business attire. Since Spring is right around the corner, it’s only fitting that pant suits are coming in these light, airy pastels like lavender, baby blue and blush pink.


So of course, as my blog name suggests, I have to follow the trends. I did so by rocking this matching set from Calvin Klein. I’m a huge fan of blazers as I’m sure some of you know already. They are one of the most versatile pieces that you can dress up or down. I love how this one doesn’t have too much structure, giving you the flexibility to style as you wish. Since I wanted to stay true the suit look, I wore the matching pants in this beautiful lavender shade. And it was just my luck that I had a pair of pumps that went perfectly with the outfit. Not only did they match exactly, but a pump was the exact shoe that this needed to complete. Check out the outfit details below and try your own version of this bossed up trend.

New Sofia Vergara x Walmart Jeans

I love being able to share with you all new brands and new places to shop. I especially enjoy when these brands are super accessible and affordable. That is definitely the case in this situation. I am rocking the newest collection from the one and only Sofia Vergara called Sofia Jeans available at Walmart! Yes, you read that correctly. Sofia has partnered with the mega-brand to launch on-trend denim and feminine tops at prices ranging from only $14-$40. Carrying sizes from a 0-20, this line includes us girl with curves. It is dedicated to the “confident women that know that sexy isn’t one size fits all”. Yes Sofia!

Sofia Jeans Review

I have to admit, that I was a little skeptical about the denim in particular. With a price point of just $24.50, I just didn’t know what to expect when it came to quality. However, I was pleasantly surprised! These mid rise jeans are well made, have great style and fit my body. The slight distressing give the denim a bit of edge and make them more fashion forward. I also love where the hem hits me. I prefer my denim to come above my ankle so that I can showcase whatever shoe I have on. This pair did just that and the raw edge added a simple, yet chic touch.

Now, I will mention that this particular pair isn’t true to size on me. I am typically a size 18 and had to size up to a 20, which puts me at the top of the range. It doesn’t have as much stretch as the jeans that I’m used to so that may account for the increased size. As you can see though, once I got in my correct size, they fit me nicely.

This top is also from the line as I wanted to try multiple items. Although simple, I love this peasant blouse. It’s one of those casual, easy to wear type of styles that you can pair with just about anything. I’m always on the go so I cherish tops that don’t require much work. This top retails for $19.50 so altogether, you can get both items for less than $50. You cannot beat that! You can shop her other tops here as well including some great graphic tees. I picked up this t-shirt as well because I loved the message.

Be sure to check out the line on Walmart.com. It has been so popular that some of the items have sold out. No need to worry though, new Summer items will be launching in April!

Marching Into Spring

March 3, 2019

I feel as though at the beginning of each new month, I repeat the same phrase to myself. “It’s ______ already?!” In thisĀ  case, I’m surprised once again that March is here and that we are practically a quarter through the year. Time is not waiting for anyone! The good thing about these months flying by is that we are inching closer and closer to Spring. Fashion is already fully immersed into Spring trends so it just makes the anticipation grow even fonder. Pastels, floral prints, and colored outerwear are all some of the popular styles going into the new season.

So, I’m dabbling into Spring with this floral ponte skirt from Torrid. In the words of Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking!” We all know that floral print is not the most inventive pattern during this time of year, but how can you resist? It is just the quintessential symbol of the season. Since the skirt had some blush notes in it, I wanted to play off of that and bring it into the top and bag. It’s a very feminine look and the pink just adds to that overall aesthetic. Finally, I finished the outfit with some caramel colored pumps that are almost flesh toned as to know take away from the other elements. I’m ready for you Spring!
