Amazon Spring Finds

Amazon Spring Finds

Now that the weather is starting to warm up, I figured it was time to create my Amazon Spring Finds post. You all loved the Fall Finds post, so how could I not? I went a tad bit overboard on this one, which I think you’ll appreciate! I got caught up in the blackhole that is Amazon and spent 3 hours searching for pieces.

Overall, I found 50 Amazon pieces that I think are so cute for spring. From rompers and dresses to cute spring tops, there’s so much! Let me know in the comments below which pieces you’re loving!

Spring Outfit Combo I’m Stealing From My Instagram Feed + Netflix Recommendations

Spring Outfit Combo I’m Stealing From My Instagram Feed + Netflix Recommendations

Instagram-Worthy Spring Outfit Combo

Gone are the days of creating mood boards out of fashion magazines. While sad, I have to say the new mood board is much more convenient. I’m talking about my saves on Instagram! I’m constantly scrolling through my feed or the explore page saving outfits I love to designated folders. And the one outfit formula I realized I’ve been loving? Flowy spring dresses with clunky sneakers!

A year ago I would never, ever have paired clunky dad sneakers with a cute dress. Maybe a pair of slip on sneakers would pass the test, but my FILAs would be a hard no. Now, I can’t get enough of the look. I’ve even seen quite a few looks adding crew socks that I think are so cool. We’ll see if I actually try to recreate though!

In other news, can you believe this dress is only $22?? It’s lightweight without being too thin and is just perfect for early spring weather. I love the combination of the balloon sleeves with the high neck—it’s the perfect amount of drama. The tiger print is also a winner for me! You know I love an animal print, so this is no exception.

If you’re not a fan of the dad sneakers—they’re not everyone’s cup of tea—this dress would also look so cute now with a pair of booties and a pair of sandals when it warms up! You could even dress it up with a pair of heels for a night out look. The options are endless.

My Top Netflix Recommendations

But enough about the outfit. I know it’s only day four of the work-from-home life (at least for me), but I’m starting to get a little stir crazy. If I’m not reading or listening to podcasts to entertain myself, you can probably find me watching my new show obsession: White Collar. I’m such a fan of crime shows, so this is perfect for me. And while this show is actually on Hulu, I thought I would share some of my Netflix recommendations (since it’s the most popular).

My TV tastes are kind of all across the board, but here they are:

  • Mindhunter
  • The Witcher
  • Criminal Minds
  • The Sinner
  • Glow Up
  • Next in Fashion
  • Derry Girls
  • Spinning Out
  • In the Dark
  • The Politician
  • Unbelievable
  • Alias Grace
  • Gossip Girl

Like I said, my taste is eclectic! From crime shows to fantasy to drama to reality competitions, it really just depends on my mood. But, I loved all of the shows on that list (shared in no particular order).

If you’re looking for movies, my list is shorter. But, I recommend:

  • Miss Americana (technically a documentary…)
  • Dumplin’
  • Murder Mystery
  • Wine Country
  • To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
  • Set it Up
  • The Ugly Truth

I hope this helps with the boredom! And if you need any podcast recommendations, I shared my favorites on this post. That’s all for today, leave me a comment below with your favorite show to watch on Netflix.

A Dainty Detail: Headbands

A Dainty Detail: Headbands

At this point, it’s no secret that I love a good headband! We might’ve even gone past love straight to obsession. It’s crazy how you can take a regular outfit and amp it up instantly with a headband in your hair. And not only that, but you can wear them so many different ways. From placed over your part to pushed back behind your ears, options are endless.

Because I love headbands so much right now, I went ahead and rounded up 45 different headbands that are perfect for this season! I’m definitely eyeing a few myself! Whether you want a classic single colored headband or a more eye-catching bedazzled version, I picked out so many to choose from.

The Early Spring Outfit I’ll Be Wearing on Repeat

The Early Spring Outfit I’ll Be Wearing on Repeat

I don’t know about you, but I think the hardest time of year to dress for is early spring. One day it’ll be 65 degrees and sunny, but the next week you could have a snow storm. So, when the weather is changing weekly I like to go back to the basics for an early spring outfit.

There’s nothing more classic than a simple white long sleeve and a good pair of denim. Both of these items are staples in my wardrobe that I reach for multiple times a week. And the great thing about them is that they make great foundations for your early spring outfits. Maybe tomorrow I’ll wear a long sleeve tee and my jeans, but later in the week swap the jeans for a denim skirt or shorts.

The way I make my simple outfits more interesting is through accessories. I don’t know what got into me this weekend but I am on a major hat kick. I can’t stop wearing my go-to taupe hat. Add in the snakeskin booties and the interest-level kicks up.

So, in early spring you can expect to see me in nothing but neutral long sleeve tops, jeans, and a cute fedora! Basically my uniform for March-April.

Tie-Dye Dress for Under $25

Tie-Dye Dress for Under $25

By this point, you guys know how much I love tie-dye! I never thought I would jump on this bandwagon, but it’s such a fun trend I couldn’t not. You can read more about my thoughts on tie-dye here, but let’s talk about this cute dress.

First, who doesn’t love a $25 price tag? Especially if you’re a little wary about this trend and its longevity, this is an easy way to try it out without committing a substantial amount. But even better than the price is the material! I kid you not, this dress is basically a gigantic sweatshirt and feels like you’re wearing pajamas. I could 100% wear it as a dressier version of lounge clothes.

Because the tie-dye dress is such a statement maker itself, I kept the rest of the outfit super simple, but springy. Read: I threw on my favorite shoes of the moment. There is absolutely nothing better than a pair of slip on white leather sneakers. I wore this pair for a solid year and half almost every single day (even in winter!) until they got so gross I had to get rid of them. Now, I’m wearing this pair from Frye and I might love them even more. But really, you can’t go wrong with either pair.

So that’s today’s short and sweet post. I can’t recommend this dress enough. If you liked this post, leave me a comment below!
