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.

Transitioning Into The Colder Months

Now that the weather is starting to feel more like fall, I’ve been playing around with how to wear this gorgeous toile dress into the colder months. My favorite way has to be with a pair of knee high boots, a beret, & my classic trench coat over top. You could also wear it with black tights, heels, & a fluffy faux fur coat to dress things up a bit. Either way, you better believe I’ll be wearing this many times in the coming months. I can’t pass up this dreamy, classic print!

Bring On The Warmth

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems as though spring was here for about 3 weeks & now we are in full summer mode. At least here in Richmond, it’s already so hot & humid. Even though summer doesn’t technically start until June 21st, the weather certainly says otherwise. The weather & colors outside greatly affect the outfits I wear on a daily basis. Around this time of year, the sun has a way of bringing out all the warm tones of nature & casting a warm, yellow tint around us. Therefore, it’s easy to see why all I want to wear are lovely, feminine, warm tone pieces. What can I say, I like to blend in with nature!

What’s Not To Love?

This look is basically a compilation of all my current favorite things. First of all, this warm-toned, striped dress is so comfortable & on sale for under $25! I’m in love with the colors, the button front details, & the feminine ties on the sides. When I wear button front dresses that don’t have very full skirts, I like to unbutton a few of the bottom buttons to show a little leg & add more drama.

My blush espadrilles add the perfect touch of warmth & match my dress so well. Espadrilles are my favorite shoes to wear in the summer. They can be both casual & dressy, but they also provide those dreamy vacation vibes I crave on the daily.

My newest basket bag was an obvious choice to pair with this look. I love how the lines on my dress are mimicked by the structure of this bag. This Laura Ashley toile scarf was the perfect accessory to this bag. It’s warm pinky-peach tones are gorgeous & toile is a print I’ve loved since I was a child. I know this will be my most worn scarf of the season.

New Series!

I’ve been so inspired by designer looks from fashion week. The fabrics they are using, the color combinations, the accessories & makeup, just everything has me in awe. If you guys have been following my Facebook page or my Instagram stories, you will have seen that I’ve been posting a lot about some really affordable designer dupes. I know that dupes can be a bit of a touchy subject at times, but my philosophy is that imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery. If I can get the same feel or look as what I’m seeing designers make for an affordable price, I’m going to go for it.

This series will highlight some of my favorite designers, the pieces I’m currently crushing on, & all the affordable dupes & designer inspired pieces I’ve found lately. I’m so pumped for this series. Let’s dive into the amazing Oscar de la Renta.

Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta was my very first designer crush back when I was in high school. I had an app that let me scroll through all of the runway show looks, & each time I was captivated by the colors, prints, florals, & silhouettes of OdlR. Since then I’ve continued to be constantly inspired by these designs. Twice I’ve worn real OdlR earrings to galas & felt like an actual princess (see here & here).

Below are a few Oscar de la Renta pieces I’m currently crushing on. I’ve found some amazing dupes & designer inspired pieces to share with you guys…

Affordable Pieces With Designer Feel

1. Red Lace Dress

This gorgeous red lace dress has a sweet floral design almost exactly like the Oscar de la Renta original. It’s the perfect length for spring & I love the flutter sleeves & the unexpected collar detail.

2. Pearl Cluster Earrings

No shocker here that I’m still crushing on all things pearl (see more here & here). I love the statement these pearl cluster drops make. Other OdlR inspired earrings include these bows, these gold florals, & this incredible star burst pair.

3. Wide Belt

My belt collection is definitely growing at the moment. I’m drawn to these OdlR inspired wide belts with large square buckles. Loving this white one featured in this post as well as this gold embellished one for under $10!

4. Classic, Feminine Khaki Dress

One of my favorite things about OdlR is that the collections are full of extravagant, lovely pieces that somehow seem so wearable. I think every woman needs a good ole classic, feminine khaki dress. A piece like this is perfect to keep in your wardrobe for those days you don’t know what to wear. This dress will always be a winner.

5. 3D Floral Bag

I’m ordering this 3D floral crossbody that’s under $20 as I write this post! Obsessed with the effect a bag like this makes on an outfit. Swooning over the OdlR floral bags, but this white one, this cute clutch, & this sweet vintage inspired one are all super affordable & give that same designer feel.

6. Flowing Yellow Maxi

Yellow is a big trend this season, & a super wearable, yet dramatic dress like this is giving me life right now. You might recognize this dress because I wore it in a recent post (see here). The color, draping skirt, & the slit are all very OdlR inspired.

7. Lovely Toile & Botanical Print Pieces

Feeling so nostalgic for all this toile print. Yes, this classic print was popular for curtains & pillows back in the day, but I also owned a few Laura Ashley dresses in toile print during my childhood. I’m so in love with the fact that it’s coming back! It’s difficult to find affordable toile pieces at the moment, but these botanical prints are a huge nod in that direction. I absolutely adore the dress I’m wearing here as well as this botanical print blouse I’ve recently added to my wardrobe.
