It may still be winter, but our heads have moved on to spring. Sure, we'll throw on a warm coat if we have to, but we're living for the day when lighter jackets and sandals will reign supreme!

So, I thought I would round up some fun spring style ideas being that March is right around a corner. These are the kind of spring style ideas that will work time...

Get Ready, Pretty Pinks for Spring

Pinks for Spring

Nothing feels quite as fresh to me as pale pink for spring. After all the heavy tones of winter it's a visual relief to wear something that feels light and airy. And with this year's trends all revolving around the ultra feminine florals, frills and ruffles, there has never been a better time for the pretty hue. I think a lot of us that experience winter often plan a little getaway around spring break or Easter. We can't all be like Kristin and live in Florida, sigh. For me, having a warm weather trip on the...

Bright Ballet Striped Tee

Striped Tee and Blazer

Calling all tee-shirt lovers! We've found another great one and this bright ballet striped tee is definitely not one to miss. I love styling a tee with a blazer for a casual professional look, although I already have a few other ways I'm planning on wearing it. So the background. Knowing that I love stripes, you won't be surprised when I say I already have two striped tee's in my closet. But I discovered that they both felt a little short length wise which make them hard to wear, especially to work. I was on the...

Favorite Rider Jacket for Spring & Starbucks Giveaway

Rider Jacket

I may just have a love and addiction for lightweight layers that knows no bounds. Lightweight layers work so effortlessly for adding a stylish vibe to a look AND are practical throughout most of the year. So when this faux suede rider jacket showed up in my most recent Stitch Fix box, it was a no brainer that it was going into the keep pile. I really like how this rider jacket has an edgy vibe with the faux suede, but also has a sweater material for the arms, making it cozy for cooler weather. I literally could...

How to Wear Frayed Hem Jeans

casual wear

I've been wanting to try the frayed hem jeans look for a while now, so when I received a KUT from the Cloth pair in my latest Stitch Fix delivery, I was super psyched! I've seen and loved them on both Nicole from Momtrends and Jolynne from Jolynne Shayne, so I had been somewhat looking for a pair of frayed hem jeans myself, but being that I haven't had a ton of time to go shopping lately, it was great to be able to have a pair delivered right to my door with very little...

Stitch Fix Unboxing and Try On, January

Stitch Fix Box Delivery

I'm pretty pumped to share with you my recent Stitch Fix Unboxing and Try On video. I really loved this month's box and even though I didn't keep everything, it felt really personal to my style which was exciting. For the video, I also added a try on portion so you can see what each item really looks like on me. I must say that adding this element to the video really gave me some clarity about what to keep and what wasn't the most flattering. It's crazy how sometimes we think or feel one way...

J. Jill Striped Casual Dress

J. Jill Striped Casual Dress

This winter has been a strange one in Maryland. I know the West Coast has had epic snow. The kind of snow that is so much snow that even snowboarders are all like, "whoa dude, that's a lot of snow!" But here on the East Coast it has been extremely mild. While that does make getting dressed and paying that heating bill a little easier, my kids are just itching for a good snow day. It's tough when you have the best sledding hill right in your own backyard! For me, it means I've been...

Trend Alert: Ruffles

Dress with Ruffles

We just love staying on top of growing fashion trends. Especially when they are something fun that we can easily mix into our wardrobes. And right now one of those trends is the addition of ruffles for spring. Sure I've seen the billowy darlings on sweaters and winter wear, but for spring these ruffles are going to be everywhere! And many of us have already mentally moved on even though we still have several chilly months ahead. I personally dipped my toe into the ruffle trend this fall with this royal blue dress. I loved the...
