loving lately, April

News flash! It’s almost MAY… like what!?!? This month has been so fast and furious, I hardly know where it’s gone. Today I’m rounding up some of my favorite purchases from April in a new-ish series that’s called Loving Lately. You can see past round ups here. This month was all about shopping for spring and summer staples – even though the weather is just NOT cooperating. To say my closet is ready for warmer weather is quite the understatement… let’s take a look at my favorites this month. 

white gauzey short sleeve top, this top is so soft and lightweight it’s the perfect piece for warm sunny days, I’m going to be wearing this A LOT once the weather warms. True to size.

olive flutter sleeve gauze top, I’m obsessed with this fabric and the flutter sleeves are just gorgeous. Plus, this is super budget friendly! True to size.

pale green tank, easy tanks like this are a staple I my spring and summer wardrobe. This one works great under jackets or on it’s own and this pale green color is SO pretty. True to size.

distressed hem jeans, obsessed. That’s all. I just adore these jeans. They are super flattering and the distressed hem is a fun touch. They don’t have stretch but form to your body as you wear them. I went up a size.

beaded necklace, beaded necklaces are my summer obsession. They are fun on their own or layered with other necklaces and they add a fun pop of color to any look. 

brown sandals, simple and classic. I love this pair! True to size.

black flutter sleeve dress, the perfect everyday dress at a crazy low price. I will wear this tons this summer. This runs big, I went down a size.

white/gold golden goose sneakers, I splurged on a new pair of Golden’s and I’m in love. I went for a super simple white pair with light gold accents. It’s my first plain white pair and they are perfect for warmer months with shorts, jeans or casual dresses. (I can’t find my exact pair online, this pair is very similar)

enbliss bra, this came under amazing recommendations from many of you as a super comfortable bra with light padding that ALSO has a deep v-neck for spring. I LOVE this bra!

loving lately, March!

 Today I am rounding up a few things I purchased and loved this month… I’m really enjoying refreshing my closet for spring weather. Now I’m just waiting for the spring weather to arrive ūüėČ Lightweight blouses, fresh sandals and some other great basics and my closet is officially ready for warmer weather and spring break too! Let’s take a look at some of my favorites from the month… they may be your next new favorite!

white dress (runs big, I went down a size to XS) – I love that this dress is super chic while also being easy to wear since it’s thick t-shirt material. It also has pockets!
stripe swim cover up (true to size, I went with my usual size small) – I adore this swim cover up. It’s almost long enough to be a dress so it covers nicely whether you want a break from the sun or are heading to the snack bar for pool treats!
black blouse (true to size, I went with my usual size small) – I am having a MOMENT with black blouses for spring this year. I love that they look pulled together but aren’t fussy. 
stripe sweater (true to size, I went with my usual size small) – This cotton sweater is SUCH a classic. It’s so beautiful in person and is the perfect winter to spring transition piece. 
birkenstocks (true to size) – After running my previous pair right into the ground (literally?!) I was definitely overdue for a fresh pair of Birks. These are just endless comfortable and I know I will wear the heck out of these (again).
balloon sleeve blouse (runs big, I went down a size, but you could go down 2 sizes too) – This top is super affordable and just stunning in person. I love it with shorts or jeans and it could even double as a swim cover up for spring travel.
mother jeans (I went with my bigger size, this brand runs small for me) – These jeans are just heaven. They are super soft and stretchy but also very flattering. I love the lighter rinse for the warmer months.
crochet sweater top (true to size, I went with my usual size small) – I am really loving feminine details like this sweater right now. It’s so beautiful in person and another great transition piece as the weather warms up!

¬†Today I’m rounding up a few items I recently purchased and am loving. A few work for now but many of them are looking forward to spring or spring break. Even though we are still knee deep in winter weather I just can’t justify buying anymore winter pieces… ugh, I love my winter clothes but I’m so ready to be done with them! Let’s take a look at the pieces…¬†

cream woven bag, I’ve had this bag on my wishlist for a while now. The cream keeps selling out but I found it in stock for you. It’s the perfect spring sports, picnic, beach/pool, haul everything tote. I’ve also heard it’s machine washable… bonus!

pearl sandals, these are so beautiful in person and believe me will be the first thing I pack for spring break, I can’t wait to wear them as the weather warms!

velcro sneakers, I’ve been living in these lately. I’m having problems with my foot and I love that these are super chic and stylish while also being very comfortable. It’s like the best I could ask for!

relaxed denim shorts, I love to kick off the spring season with a new pair of denim shorts. This pair is perfectly relaxed and slouchy and fit so great. The denim is no stretch so they really have that designer look to them without the price tag. (these run big, I went with my smaller size)

coin necklace, I’m having a major moment with necklaces and while I usually go for more delicate options I’ve really been drawn to the more chunky necklaces lately. This one is so chic and goes with everything. You can wear it on it’s own or layered.

black belted dress, this dress is simple and stylish and I love that it’s super classic and easy to wear and also crazy affordable. I plan to absolutely live in dresses when the weather allows… I can’t wait. (true to size)

black blouse, another super simple and classic piece that feels expensive but is actually super affordable. I love this one! (true to size)

green shorts, I don’t love shorts but also they can be necessary for the super warm days. This pair is SO flattering. The perfect length and a high waist that really works well. (these run big, I went with my smaller size)

beige sweater, I’m so over my bulky wool sweaters… this cotton blend sweater is unbelievably soft and fluffy like a pillow in a really good way. It’s the perfect lighter weight sweater to transition to spring.

white demi boot crop jeans, I’m so ready for white jeans on the regular. I previously owned this pair and absolutely ran them into the ground after a few years… I’m so glad this style is back because I just snagged them again!

The dead of winter is the perfect time to stock up on some essentials and wardrobe staples. Today I rounded up some items I either have my eye on right now or that I’ve recently purchased and LOVE. Simple classics that are comfortable are my favorite year round, but especially this time of year when getting dressed isn’t nearly as fun as it can be in the summer and fall. Let’s take a look at the pieces…

I’m obsessed with these black boot crop jeans, many sizes are limited but you can shop¬†here¬†or¬†here¬†or¬†here. I went with my bigger size, this brand seems to run a little small for me. They are super flattering and comfortable and the small flare at the ankle is so fun!
I adore this¬†puff sleeve sweatshirt, it’s casual and works with joggers or leggings but you can also dress it up with jeans. I own it in two colors. I find it’s true to size. I have one color in my usual size and another I went up a size for a roomier fit.
This¬†cotton fisherman sweater¬†is on it’s way to me right now! I loved the cashmere version so much I also bought it in cotton. I went up a size in this style for a more oversized fit. The price on this is so good!
I can never resist a stripe sweater Рthis one is perfectly oversized and super affordable!
These suede loafers were love at first sight! I love a loafer and this pair is going to be a perfect transition to spring piece.
I’ve had so many of you ask for recommendations on¬†mid-rise jeans¬†– this pair is AWESOME! It’s a modern straight leg but with an approachable mid rise. They are super comfortable and flattering too.
Do I need this¬†charm bracelet? No. Do I really want it? Yes. It’s just so fun!
I’ve had my eye on this¬†woven tote¬†for a while. Now… to choose a color. This black color? Maybe white? Maybe a fun color?
This¬†cashmere fisherman sweater¬†is SO beautiful in person. Oh my goodness. And it’s about 1/3 of the price of similar options I’ve seen on Instagram. I went up a size for a roomier fit.
