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.

My Latest DSW Finds

My Latest DSW Finds

Happy Wednesday! Although, with Memorial Day, today feels more like a Tuesday. But at least Friday comes that much quicker! Anyway, I did a little shopping recently, so I thought I’d share some of my latest DSW shoe finds. I’m going to Europe in two weeks so I’ve been on the hunt for cute and comfortable shoes I can take with me.

First up are these snakeskin slides I’m wearing above. My mom actually got these for me while I was still at school and I didn’t realize exactly how freaking comfortable they are. They’re such an easy shoe to slip on and go—they go perfectly with so many different outfits. I’ve been loving them with a simple white tee and denim short combo to give the outfit a little extra oomph.

Next are a trend I’ve been dying to jump on board: dad shoes. I get that they aren’t for everyone, but I think they look so chic with a sundress or flowy skirt. I wore them yesterday (check my Insta!) with a leopard tank and black shorts and absolutely loved the look. The best part is I’m pretty sure these shoes were $100 at Urban Outfitters, but I got them for just $65!

Finally, I also bought the comfiest sneaker I’ve ever worn. So many people have raved about the Adidas cloud foam shoes, so my mom and I had to check them out. After trying them on it was a no-brainer for the both of us. We need something comfy for those long days of walking around and I like that the subtle color makes them a bit more chic to wear with cute outfits. I know my feet will thank me!

Anyway, that’s my roundup of my recent DSW purchases. They really are a go-to store for trendy shoes for a little bit less than department store prices. What shoes are you grabbing for the summer?
