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!

Polka Dots for Spring: the Print You Need

Polka Dots for Spring: the Print You Need

And I can’t wait to share all of our travel deets on a New Orleans travel guide coming soon (check out my London travel guide here)!

But anyway, here is the look I wore for spending the day in City Park. We walked around the grounds, played mini golf, and had lunch—honestly you could spend days just in the park. Because we were going to be walking around and playing mini golf, I wanted to wear something comfy, casual, but cute. And you really can’t go wrong with a cute top and light shorts with sandals!

I don’t know about you, but I’m over florals for spring—it’s all about the polka dots! I love the unique color of these shorts paired with white polka dots. They will definitely be on repeat through spring and summer. I also love the subtle ruffle detail on the hem and down the front. It paired so well with the babydoll top.

The best part of this outfit is that my top and shorts together are only $20! Plus, Shein is having a sale right now through April 14th. You can get an extra 15% off with the code shsale058! Definitely check out my top and shorts, plus some other items. Shein is my favorite place to shop trendy items for less.

I can’t think of anything more chic or versatile than a jumpsuit. Whenever I put one on, it’s like an instant confidence boost. And they work for almost any occasion — casual days, work, dressier events, you name it. Lately, I’ve been all about the spring/summer jumpsuits. The ones made of light fabrics in subtle colors and especially striped jumpsuits.

The one above is a jumpsuit I picked up it Florida at Forever21 of all places. I wasn’t able to find it online, but I found a really similar version from the same store. Surprisingly, Forever21 is offering some really cute jumpsuits right now and I have to say I’m impressed. What I love about this jumpsuit is the pinstripes. I feel like they make me look taller than I am (which is a plus) and the pattern isn’t overwhelming.

In my appreciation for the lovely piece that is the jumpsuit, I thought I’d round up a few of my favorites for you all. Happy shopping!

P.S. I hope you don’t mind the shorter post this week, but it’s the end of the semester and things are a little crazy!

Happy Thursday babes! So close to the weekend, thank god. I’m actually visiting one of my best friends in Charleston this weekend and I am SOO excited (stay tuned for content). Anyway, back to this week’s look…

I bought this ruffle top about a month ago and it has been a staple in my closet ever since. You may have seen it already if you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t go follow!). The silhouette of the top is just so different from any other top I have. Even better: the shirt was just under $100 when I bought it from Nordstrom, and while it’s sold out there now, it’s on sale at Macy’s for $72!

I decided to go with a ruffle theme and pair my top with this asymmetrical, denim ruffle skirt I also bought from Nordstrom. When I bought it, I was actually looking for a plain, non-distressed denim skirt. I saw this one instead and knew I had to buy it! Like the top, it’s a silhouette that I just haven’t seen and am loving. Clearly ruffles are a fave of mine.

Because I wore this look to class before shooting it, I paired my slip on white sneaker-type shoes with it. And let me tell you — I cannot stop wearing these shoes! I get so many compliments on them and they’re just simple slip on sneakers. They pair so well with leggings and a tee on lazy days, but then also dresses and skirts on days when you went to look put together but still casual. If you’re looking for a new shoe for spring, I highly recommend!

On a side note, I just want to talk about my lipstick for a minute. It’s one of the Sephora Collection lipsticks and although this color isn’t sold anymore, you should definitely buy it! They’re only about $12, but I think they last better than any lipstick I own, including ones I’ve spent upwards of $30 on.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! If you liked this post, let me know in the comments below!
