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!

A Dainty Detail: Mint Green

I’m not sure where mint green went the past few years, but I’m glad to say it’s back and here to stay! I will admit, after it first gained popularity it got. I was so done with the color.

So, now that we know I’m completely in love with this color for the spring season, let’s see some pieces featuring it! From tops to bottoms to shoes and accessories, you really can’t go wrong with mint green. Keep scrolling for some cute items I’m loving!

Spring Denim Guide: 4 Styles Your Closet Needs

Spring Denim Guide: 4 Styles Your Closet Needs

In case you missed it, I shared my fall denim guide back in October, so I thought I should do the same for this season and share my spring denim guide! Obviously I’ve been a huge fan of straight leg jeans, but there are some other denim types that I think are having a moment in Spring 2020.

But, before I get into the styles I’m loving, I have to talk about this outfit! I mean, how freaking cute is this puff sleeve top? I shared it on Instagram stories as part of my Daily Faves and knew I had to have it. The color and the voluminous sleeve are just perfect together. Tucked into a pair of straight leg jeans, I kept the look casual with my new favorite sneakers. This look would also be so cute dressed up with a pair of heels. All in all, I think it’s the ultimate spring look. Now, keep reading for my top four denim picks!

Mom Jeans

90s inspiration has increasingly made an appearance in recent fashion trends, but the most notable is the mom jean. Although it has a bad rep for being an unflattering shape, the modern version is anything but. The high waist paired with a baggier fit around the leg area is the perfect combo to pair with your spring tops.

White Denim Jeans

White jeans are easily the most iconic denim style for spring. There’s something so fresh about a white wash that you just gravitate towards when the weather starts to warm up. Bonus: you can easily try one of the other three styles in a white wash!

Straight Leg Jeans

Like I mentioned above, straight leg jeans are my absolute favorite style at the moment. They’re such a flattering style and instantly elevate any outfit. When I’m trying to put together a chic look, I will grab straight leg jeans over other styles 97% of the time. It’s definitely a style worth investing in because I can’t imagine it going anywhere soon!

Flare Jeans

I don’t know why, but I absolutely love a flare jean for spring! I think it’s because I love pairing flare jeans with wedge sandals—something about that combo is just way too cute! Opt for a lighter pair during the day with a cute little spring top and a darker wash at night for a nice night-out/date night look.

There you have it: my top four spring denim picks! Tell me your favorite style in the comments below!

3 Spring Trends I Can Get Behind

3 Spring Trends I Can Get Behind

I think I’ve been saying this every day, but I am so, so ready for spring! I always feel like there’s a fashion slump right after Christmas where I feel so uninspired. And when February finally roles around, I start to embrace all things pink which has me longing for spring clothes. So, while I live in a fantasy land where it’s warm and sunny, I thought I should share the top three spring trends I’m loving and shopping for!

1. Tie-Dye

So this is probably my favorite trend this season. I’ve been sharing tie-dye pieces non-stop since the beginning of January, and have already started adding to my own collection. I love that you can incorporate this trend in so many ways. From tops to dresses to accessories, etc. there are so many options!

2. Neon

Bright, neon colors are having a moment, especially sherbet orange and hot pink! I’m a little wary of highlighter greens and yellows, but still think they can be so cute!

3. Crochet

Crochet is a new trend that I haven’t seen much of in the past, but I’m here for it! It’s definitely a 70s throwback, but with a modern twist. Crochet also gives off a boho vibe that is so fun for spring, especially during concert and festival season. I can’t wait to wear it!

Thanks for reading! Let me know what your favorite spring trend is in the comments below!

The Ultimate Guide to Spring Accessories

The Ultimate Guide to Spring Accessories

I don’t know about you, but I am LOVING all of the fun accessory trends this spring. From bags, to jewelry, to hair accessories, there is so much going on and I am living for it! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Because today I’m sharing four of the top trends that I can’t scroll through my Instagram feed without seeing.

PVC (Clear) Bags

I don’t know why this became a trend—I mean, showing people what’s inside your bag??—yet I still think it’s so chic. Also, now you have a good reason to clean all of the extra junk out of your bag. I love that there are so many different styles of bags that are still incorporating this trend. So if you’re a small, crossbody bag lover like myself, or a large tote lover (like my mom!), there is a PVC bag for you!

 

Pearl Clips

I haven’t actually jumped on board this trend yet, but you can bet your booty I am ordering some soon. Who doesn’t love a trend you can incorporate with $8 and an Amazon Prime account? I can’t wait to start rocking pearl clips into the summer. I’m only sharing a few options (they all start to look the same after awhile), but you can definitely price shop on Amazon and Etsy for the best deals!

 

Woven/Basket Bags

I know, I know, this isn’t a new trend. But I am happy to say that it is back again this season. I could not get enough of my basket bag last summer (I actually used mine so much it broke and had to buy a new one), so here’s to bringing the trend back this spring. I love that like the PVC bag trend there are so many different styles to choose from.

 

Puka Shell Jewelry

Confession time: I absolutely hated this trend when I first started seeing it. All I could think about was the tacky jewelry I used to buy at the beach in middle school. But, my opinion changed when I got the cutest little gold puka shell bracelet. Since then, I have been so on board. This trend really comes down to the pieces you choose; stay away from anything that looks like you could have bought it at a random tourist trap 10 years ago, and opt for dainty, gold (or silver) pieces.

 

Which trends will you be rocking this spring? Are there any you love that I left out? Let me know in the comments below!
