Did we bypass spring, because it is already starting to feel like summer in Florida? Hello friends, it has been a while! Quick update: I am still at Coach though ready to transition to marketing and briefly freelanced in digital marketing last month; I've embraced a new lob haircut; I am fully committed to learning to speak Japanese; and I recently binge-watched 13 Reasons Why and now it is all I can think about. On that last note, have you seen it? It is incredible.
I have been meaning to share this post for some time and clearly so, because it is already well past sweater weather and I've started buying up sundresses and strappy sandals to embrace the season. I'm currently loving oversized gingham prints, off-the-shoulder flowy tops, and moody florals for spring--here's looking at you Coach. Oh, and pink. Lots and lots of pink!
I can't wait to share with you how I style these trends for the season in the upcoming weeks, but in the meanwhile, I thought I would finally share this look as these killer strappy mules and out of this world crossbody are still season appropriate--and too cute!
For those still embracing sweater weather, I'm loving Who What Wear for Target knits. I bought this turtleneck back during winter, but a lot of knits have currently hit the sale section, perfect for stocking up for next winter. There are a lot of nineties and early aughts trends that I have rebelled against for so long but lately have been giving in to and even full on embracing. These include chokers, velvet, and turtlenecks. Though the latter may seem more of a classic staple than a dated trend, I have nightmarish memories of some pretty awful turtlenecks from my childhood. Luckily, this one is nothing like those from Christmas' past.
I am living for fringe and flared ankle jeans, and you can still find this pair at Target as part of the Who What Wear line. That hint of ankle and subtle fringe instantly add Instagram-approved style to any outfit and can be worn so many different ways. They also perfectly accent and frame a statement shoe, especially pairs with lace-up or ankle strap detailing. I was so excited to find these snake-embossed mules by Christian Siriano for Payless. I clearly underestimated the budget-friendly shoe source--I never thought I would find something this stylish and well made there! I have since found several more styles I love, and it has become a regular shopping destination.
Now, on to the bag. This is the Dinky 24 from Coach's Pre-Spring 2017 collection. Pale pink and highlighter yellow embroidery mixed with edgy studding and rocket ship and star motifs are just my kind of whimsy. As soon as I saw this bag, I knew I had to have it. It is surprisingly versatile to wear too with its chalk and black coloring. If you love rocket ships as much as I do, Coach has come out with all knds of rocket embellishments from bag charms to card cases and charm bracelets.
My jewelry welcomes in the new season with these industrial bloom rings featuring the Coach tea rose, a favorite of mine. Worn on one hand, they make for one stylish--and innocent--knuckleduster.
That is all for now. I cannot wait to share some spring looks for you all in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
