Spring is here!!! These blooms are definitely brightening my day!

Social Distancing Beneath The Cherry Blossoms

My heart goes out to our world right now. This is such a scary time. All we can do is stay at home, be diligent in our social distancing, & pray for the health & healing of our world. In this post, I want to share things I’ve been doing at home to pass the time, stay positive, & keep up productivity.

Ben & I have been doing some fun house projects such as painting & decorating! I promise to share photos & more info on all of our home projects in the weeks to come…so stay tuned!

All of this time at home has opened up my schedule for some spring cleaning. It’s the perfect time to do a deep clean & declutter around the house. We’ve been going through closets & drawers that have been neglected in order to get rid of things we don’t need anymore. It feels so good to purge those things & give our living space a bit of a refresh.

Another thing I’ve been trying to do lately is boost my creativity. Whether I’ve been watercolor painting, playing with new pairings in my closet, or painting my face with makeup, it’s a great time to get those creative juices flowing & experiment with new things (& without spending any money!).

Now for technology…

I’m finally into TikTok, you guys! I may or may not have called it TicTac on accident recently…but that’s besides the point. TikTok has been a huge bright spot in my life these past few days. I find myself cracking up, relating, & watching these super creative videos with awe. Why not try a few new dance moves? Are you on TikTok, too?

Thank goodness for FaceTime am I right?! It has been so nice to see the faces of my friends & family during this time. Reach out to your loved ones. Tell them you love them. We will get through this together!

Lastly, I’ve been playing around with how I edit my photos. This year, I’ve decided to allow myself to try new things. I don’t want to get in a rut of how my photos “should look”. I want to play around with color, light, & contrast & I hope you all enjoy the different feel in each look.

Inspiration

I found the most lovely cherry blossoms right around the corner from where I live & knew I had to shoot an equally lovely look there. As I was searching to find the perfect outfit, I came across these super fun & happy polka dot pants. Their pattern brought a pop that makes a statement amongst the pastel pink heaven surrounding me.

How To Wear Them

These polka dot pants are an ideal spring pant option to have in your wardrobe. Their neutral colors make them very wearable & easy to pair with a variety of tops & accessories. I love that you can easily dress a pair of pants like these up or down. In the future, I can see myself wearing these same pants with a chambray top & a pair of loafers or ballet flats, or with an embroidered t-shirt with my favorite taupe mules. I also want to play more with print mixing (read my challenge to myself here), & these pants are the perfect guinea pigs for just that. Would you guys like to see another print mixing post featuring these pants? I’m thinking I have some gingham & floral tops that might look really cool with these babies! Yes? Let me know in the comments below.

How I’ve Styled Them

I purchased this gorgeous crisp white top in the same ASOS order as my happy polka dot pants, not even planning on wearing them together. When they arrived, during my normal “try-on” (would you guys like to see my “try-ons” in my Instagram stories, btw???), I ended up having both of these pieces on at the same time, & it just worked! I absolutely love this look, & I think the tie detail on the top really helps bring the look together. Without the tie, I would feel like I needed a necklace or a scarf to balance it all out, but the sweet tie does a great job of doing it on it’s own.

Knowing I would be in this pastel pink heaven, I jumped at the opportunity to finally wear my pretty pink heels that I know I will be wearing time & time again this spring/summer. Since I can’t quite leave the house without a jacket yet, I draped my classic denim jacket over my shoulders for a warm, chic look. To finish up this look, I quickly grabbed my current favorite spring bag that ticks all the right boxes. It’s pink, straw, & has gold hardware! What’s not to love? (Oh, & did I mention it’s under $25?!)

I just love how this look turned out, & I know I’ll be wearing it again soon!
