My Two Favorite Blairs

Feeling very much like Blair in this outfit. Which Blair you might ask? Well, two of them actually, & both are fashion icons. The first being Blair Waldorf from one of the best shows ever, Gossip Girl. Her feminine, preppy style is nodded to in this look along with her go-to accessory: the headband. I had to shoot this look on steps because what queen of the upper east side doesn’t each lunch on the steps of the Met everyday?

The other beautiful Blair I’m referencing in this post is Blair Eadie, fellow blogger, designer, & creator of Atlantic-Pacific. She is one of the most fearless fashionistas I know. Her outfits are a work of art. & a source of endless inspiration. I’m drawn to her bold color mixing, her dramatic silhouettes, & her love of cat eye sunglasses (a favorite of mine as well). She always seems to make even her most flashy outfits look casual & totally wearable, somehow. One of the ways she does this is by pairing her looks with oxfords which is why I’ve done just that here. Such a fun & comfortable way to mix up a look & dress it down a bit.

The Best Dress To Invest In

This fun outfit inspired by the Blairs features my jacquard midi dress (seen here & here) from Chicwish. Let me tell you a little secret…a dress like this is the very best dress to invest in solely based on how versatile it is. As I continue to curate my wardrobe, I find that a classic sleeveless, crew neck dress is beyond valuable. It’s the perfect piece for both layering under & over. I’m loving layering different fun tops underneath, particularly ones with statement sleeves, high necks, & pussy bows (like the one I’m wearing). A silhouette like this also works perfectly with a belt added around the waist. Mrs. Maisel has given me major belt envy. (If you have not watched that show, you are missing out!) But honestly, next time you’re shopping & you see a dress with this shape, snatch it up! You’ll wear it, & re-style it constantly!

Time To Accessorize!

No look is ever complete without the proper accessories. These super sweet heart earrings are under $5 & make quite the statement. They would also be perfect for Valentine’s Day which is right around the corner. Another key piece to this look, which was mentioned before, is my burgundy headband. I’m so into this trend that’s making a comeback at the moment. A headband has a way of completing any outfit. (See some headband inspo here & here) To finish off my look, I added a super affordable pair of cat eye sunglasses, & a floral embroidered crossbody bag.

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.
