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.

Navy Girl

When it comes time to find an occasion dress, cocktail dress, or a date night look, my go-to color is navy. I’m a navy girl through & through. I love that it still has that glam, evening feel, but somehow doesn’t feel as harsh as black. In fact, navy feels classy, classic, & very feminine. Another great thing about navy is that it plays well with so many of my favorite colors & can be worn all year long. Some of the best colors to pair with navy this time of year are white, green, tan, & yellow.

Keeping It Classy

This LND is the epitome of a date night look. Would you believe me if I told you it was only $20?! I know! What a steal! I love the high neck with the sheer lace combined with the very classy mini length. It’s not too short making it easy to sit in comfortably. Phew! The winning features on this dress for me though have to be the ruffle sleeves & ruffle trim on the bottom. Such classically feminine details making it a must have item in my wardrobe.

Cute & Flirty

A dress like this can easily be dressed up or down making it the perfect dress for any occasion. I wanted this date night look to be both cute & flirty. As I mentioned before, I love the color pairing of navy & green, so I wanted to add some subtle green accents to complete this look. My new palm leaf raffia block heels fit this look so well bringing a bit of green to the outfit. The raffia block heels also have a way of being both dressy & casual at the same time if that’s even possible. For a touch of glam, I wore my Kate Spade bright green earrings packed with a bit of sparkle. As I said in my previous post, I like to add my own personal flair to my outfits & a great way to do that is with a clear bag like the one I’m wearing. It’s fun to think about the colors & aesthetics of the contents of my bag to really complete my look.

All About The Texture

Playing with different textures in an outfit is a great way to elevate your look. For spring, I love light cotton pieces, shirred details, buttons & bows, & lace or crochet pieces. But most of all I love incorporating woven, wicker, & rattan pieces into my looks for more of a classic, vintage feel. This natural texture brings warmth & dimension to an outfit. I tend to gravitate towards these lovely pieces on the daily once the weather starts to warm up. The easiest way to add some of this natural texture to to your look is with a sweet basket bag, but that’s not the only way to do this. Right now there are so many amazing shoes & accessories available to add some lovely texture to your daily looks.

What I’m Wearing

Let’s start at the top! These woven straw hoop earrings were a steal at only $7. They are so lightweight, & easy to pair with almost any look. Next is my new favorite top. This lovely botanical print top with ruffle sleeves is on sale right now for only $7! I’m so in love with this dreamy floral print & classic feminine shape. Then I chose to add this faux leather & woven belt (also on sale for only $7…I’m seeing a trend here…haha) around my waist to add a bit of structure & break up the look a bit.

The lace midi skirt is one that I’ve own for many years now. (see a similar one here) I love the contrast between the soft lace skirt & the structured basket bag. This particular basket bag is the newest in my collection & looks like a mini picnic basket. It’s small enough to be carried around with ease, but big enough to carry quite a lot with you. For a feminine touch, I tied my Gal Meets Glam Logo Scarf in a bow on one of the handles. Last but not least are my white woven shoes (which are under $30!). These beauties are so comfortable to wear, & I love the way a white shoe looks with a spring outfit.
