The Scents Of The New Season

Here in Richmond, it’s still quite cold, but a a few spring-y days have been sprinkled in making my spring wardrobe seem so appealing. I’m so ready for crisp white tops, flowing midi skirts, basket bags, & espadrilles. On the colder days, an easy way to welcome spring into your life is with a fresh fragrance. My favorite spring notes would have to be roses, lavender, jasmine, & amber. There’s something so special about choosing a fragrance for the day. It has the power to set my mood, mindset, & confidence level for the rest of the day. Also, nothing gets me more in the cheerful spring mood than a fresh floral scent.

The Affordable Fragrance Collection

Now I know fragrances aren’t cheap & the thought of being able to afford an entire collection may seem unattainable, but rollerballs have totally changed the game. These beautiful on the go fragrances are the perfect way to be able to afford the fragrances you love & then to build a collection. Just think, the average price of a full size perfume is around $100. That means you could get about 4 rollerballs for the price of one full bottle! That’s 4 new scents to add to your collection! I love having a variety to choose from, & being able to choose your daily scent based off the season you’re in or the mood you’re going for is just the best. Upping your rollerball game this year is a great way to collect fragrances at an affordable price.

In my current rollerball collection, my spring favorites would have to be Gucci – Bloom, & Stella McCartney – Peony. These are both fresh a floral, & Peony even has a bit of sweetness to it. I also have Black Tulip by Nest which has a deeper, warmer floral scent to it. Another springtime go-to is the Viktor & Rolf – Flowerbomb. This scent is a cult favorite & with good reason, it’s just such a satisfying scent. A few other great scents for spring that are on my list to try are the Elizabeth & James – Nirvana French Grey, Nest – Wisteria Blue, & Chloé – Roses.

The Pink & Parisienne Valentine

The Pink & Parisienne Valentine

Pretending I Live In Paris

When you think of Paris, what comes to your mind? For me, it’s romance, effortless style, hours at the café down the street, & beautiful buildings everywhere. Even the word, Paris, has a dreamy feeling to it. This Valentine’s Day, why not pretend you’re in “The City Of Love” for the evening? Bring that Parisienne romance & effortless style wherever you will be spending Valentine’s Day this year. What kind of date will the pink & Parisienne valentine go on & what will she wear?

What She Wears

The pink & Parisienne valentine wears the most effortlessly chic item of clothing: the classic wrap dress. It’s pink, feminine, comfortable to wear, & universally flattering. A dress like this is perfect to wear out to eat since it does a great job of hiding any food babies one might acquire.

To give this feminine dress a bit of an edge, she wears her tall burgundy boots with her matching beret & crossbody bag. She looks put together, feminine, & still has that Parisienne woman mystery to her. The final touches to her look include a faux fur coat draped over her shoulders, the perfect matte lipstick, a small pair of earrings, & a little shimmer on her eyes.

The Date She Goes On

I imagine the couple going out to a jazz club for dinner, drinks, & incredible live music. They talk about their passions, people watch, & even get up & dance, if the music is just right. Once they’ve had their fill of people for the night, they stop for a sweet treat, which if she were me would be ice cream. They then return home for an evening of wine, French film watching (try Amélie), & romance.

Re-Thinking The LBD

Typically, we think the perfect date night look features the one & only little black dress. For this playful & casual Valentine’s Day look, I want to re-imagine that look for a fun daytime outfit. Instead of black, I chose a navy dress. Navy is a classic color that has a much more daytime appropriate feel. I highly recommend adding a little navy dress into your wardrobe if you don’t have one already. This dress is probably the most worn dress I own! The playful & casual Valentine wears her LND. Let’s see how she accessorizes this look & what kind of date she wears this look to.

The Look

The playful & casual Valentine wears her LND layered over a sweet high neck cream top. She is cutesy & is not afraid of a little cheese, so she comes prepared with homemade valentines in her clear purse for both decor & to give to her valentine. Pink statement earrings are a must & she finds the perfect pink lipstick to match. She knows her navy kitty flats will be cute & comfortable as well as a great conversational piece.

The Date

This outfit can be worn to many different kinds of dates. I imagine these love birds wandering through an old book store where they each find books that spark their interests & let their imaginations run wild. They exchange valentines & blush at each other’s sweet & cheesy words to one another. Then they spend hours in their favorite coffee shop reading their new books, holding hands, & sipping on warm cortados.

Feeling Like A Pastel Princess

I’m bringing out my favorite spring pastels a bit earlier than usual. Warm pastel layers are absolutely perfect for this time of year. This look features feminine pastels, pearls, florals, & sparkles all combined into one dreamy outfit.

We came across this sweet pastel house that matched my outfit perfectly. It was totally meant to be! I felt like a pastel princesses outside my cute little castle. But in all honesty…how adorable is that house & when can I move in?!

Style Tip

When branching out & mixing different colors together, I’ve found one easy way to ensure success. Take this look for example. See the colors in my floral bag? They are also seen throughout my entire outfit. Find a bag, scarf, shoe, or accessory that has a print or design which mixes different colors, & let it be your guide to choosing the rest of your look.

Building Your Winter Pastel Wardrobe

Mint Sweater

I’m so drawn to this mint color at the moment. Not to mention, it compliments my favorite shade of pastel pink beautifully. Having warm knits in feminine pastels shades are so helpful when putting together outfits in late winter & early spring. Make sure they are not too long or oversized so they can be worn with both jeans & high waisted skirts.

Pink Tulle Skirt

My pink tulle skirt is the most beautiful & quintessentially feminine staple in my wardrobe. I mean, even Carrie Bradshaw wore it! A piece like this is so versatile & easy to wear. I am also a ballerina in real life, so twirling around in a tutu is one of my very favorite things to do. A skirt like this brings me so much joy. This pastel pink goes with just about every single color as well, so it should fit into any wardrobe with ease.

Sparkle Shoes

I’m typically a gold girl through & through, but I’m just loving the way silver pairs with pastels. My silver sparkly Mary Janes (similar here) have been worn so much recently. Mixing them with outfits that feature my beloved pastel pieces are my absolutely favorite way to wear them. Whether you like silver or not, a pair of sparkly shoes & a tulle skirt are just a match made in heaven.

Affordable Ways To Stay On Trend

Headbands

An easy & fairly inexpensive way to be on trend this spring/summer is by wearing fun headbands. I’m totally obsessing over this trend. Brands are coming out with so many different varieties & styles of headbands, making it so easy to find the best fit for your wardrobe & your budget. Styles I’m loving include embellished (like my pearl one worn in this post), scarf print headbands like this one, & knotted or floral headbands.

Faux Fur Coats & Jackets

Faux fur pieces can get really expensive. If you love the look of items like this, but aren’t able to invest in ones on the current market, look around in your local Goodwill stores. I’ve found 2 of my faux fur coats & jackets at Goodwill (see them on the blog here & here). Another way to add them to your wardrobe requires a little bit of patience. Look for out of season sales. These faux fur pieces are timeless, & won’t be going out of style, so buying them during the off season & waiting for next winter is a safe option. I post a lot of sale updates & my favorite affordable pieces over on my Facebook page, so don’t forget to follow me there for out of season sales & ways to save your money.

Wearing/Hoarding All The Pearls

Lately my eye is drawn to one thing, & one thing only…pearls! It’s safe to say, if any accessory or any item of clothing has pearls on it, I want it (or I already have it!). Pearls are the epitome of classic elegance. They are timeless, & therefore it is a no brainer that my wardrobe has gladly welcomed a few new pieces I know I will wear for years & years to come. This look came together like a dream & just begged for one pearl detail after another.

Live A Little!

Maybe it was the pink suede mini skirt, or the fluttery sleeves, but these gorgeous Chicwish pieces gave me new life! I was dancing on the streets, feeling confident, & even a bit sassy. This outfit gave me the much needed reminder to just live a little sometimes. I know how easy it is to get in a rut & stick to what you know, but fashion is a great way to step out! It’s just clothes! You don’t even have to wear an outfit for an entire day if you don’t want to! Take the risk. Be someone else. Our better yet, be your true self. Dress exactly how you’re feeling & just live a little…pearls & all!

Post-Christmas Winter Styling

Hello lovelies, & welcome to 2019! Up until now, my winter wardrobe has been centered around the holidays & being very festive. Now, it’s still so cold outside, but I’m ready to move on from my holiday looks to a more feminine winter wardrobe for everyday wear. Even though it’s cold, I still prefer to wear dresses on most days, so my knee high boots are getting quite a lot of wear for the extra warmth. Faux fur is also a must for my stylish winter wardrobe. It’s the perfect way to be cozy & chic at the same time. While I do love these styling elements, my favorite rule for layering & choosing my ensemble this winter is to stick to 2 colors only.

The 2 Color Rule

This outfit features shades of pink & brown. Sticking to two colors or shades of those two colors is a classic & easy way to put together a great & stylish winter look. Remember to think about your shoes & accessories when applying this rule. Scarves, hats, sunglasses, earrings, gloves, etc. The possibilities are endless! Get creative with the colors you want to mix. Combos I’m loving include black & navy, pink & purple, blue & white, & mint & blush. This rule is perfect for trying out new color combinations. I have a whole board on my Pinterest to which I pin all of my color mixing inspiration to. Follow me on Pinterest here.
