Chambray Everyday

Whenever I am struggling to put an outfit together, I always think, "I wonder if my chambray shirt would look good with this". This baby has definitely gotten its share of wear time over the 1+ years that I've owned it and it still looks great, with everything
On this particular day, I paired it with this jacquard miniskirt that I got recently from H&M. I love the subtle detail, and the structured shape is super flattering and easy to wear. 
Another trusty friend, this black moto jacket. I'm hanging on to the cool spring days while I can still wear this jacket.

There's been an obvious lack of product posts on my blog lately. One of the reasons is that I've been really enjoying doing outfit posts. In some ways they are easier, quicker, and I've been really inspired by the fashion blog world. Second, I haven't been buying new products. I still love my beauty bits, but there comes a point in one's product hoarding when all the variations of peachy pink blush, and brown taupe eyeshadows have been exhausted.
I need some new inspiration! What are some of your favorite products at the moment?

Mint Moto

Quick post today - I loved this jacket so much, I couldn't help myself and got it in mint green too. Through looking for things to wear it with, I discovered that mint green, taupe, and white is a great combo.
How perfect are these strappy sandals from Zara?? The low heel keeps them casual, and the white and nude colorblock goes with everything.

Spring Shoe - Soludos Flats

I recently stumbled upon the Soludos brand, and I can't believe I haven't discovered them earlier. I would die for a pair of Chanel espadrilles, as seen on every fashion blogger recently - but for 500 dollars I could buy 15 pairs of Soludos espadrilles and wear a different pair each day of the week through the spring and summer. I had been contemplating a pair of Toms, but something about the shape of these I like better, and they are a more true espadrille. They come in every pattern and color, I'm obsessed with them all, but my absolute favorites are the black + natural color block. Dying to wear these with a cute mini skirt and a casual tee. Check them out!

LUSH Print Blazer + New Hair

Jacket - LUSH /  Tank - Brandy Melville / Jeans - H&M / Heels - Prabal Gurung for Target (similar)

I ombred my hair! I finally took the plunge and just did it myself and I am super pleased with the way it turned out. Still thinking of doing it once more over to lighten it even more.
Spring is finally here, and I'm definitely feeling it with my lighter hair and this bright floral patterned blazer. This is the brightest piece of clothing I have in my closet, and I decided to pair it with the brightest pair of shoes I own - these prabal gurung beauties. The jacket is by LUSH, a brand that I always gravitate towards when I find it in Nordstrom, or random boutiques. It is beautifully structured, lightweight, and makes a bold statement.
And these shoes!! I died when I found them at Target after watching them get sold out online. Dress them up, dress them down, the lime green is definitely the color of the season and it is surprisingly wearable.

Enjoy your week!
