Springtime is officially here! While it still may not feel like it, warmer weather is definitely on the way! This past weekend, it was a beautiful 80 degrees in Charleston so I definitely need to start steering clear of the sweaters and breaking out my new spring favorites.
I would definitely call this a transition season outfit. Throw a sweater or cardigan over a nice bright dress to make any day, whether it be casual or busy, a stylish one. Riding boots can definitely last you into the spring on those colder days to dress up an more casual dress. Also, Jack Rogers or wedges do the job well too. I am also a huge fan of belted dresses. The coral color of this dress is absolutely perfect for spring and the gold jewelry perfectly accessorizes the outfit.
This outfit can be for work, class or even a girls night out or a date! The dark skinny jeans with the cute neutral wedges are a perfect transition into spring. I love the green color of the tank and am always looking for shirts in bright colors like this because they standout and make any outfit look that much better. The Tory Burch earrings are maybe a tad over the top, but any gold earrings would look fabulous with such an outfit. Kate Spade’s earrings are to die for, so check them out! The Tory Burch purse is so cute and the cross body is key to this outfit. I am definitely adding this to my next wishlist. Also, it matches the beautiful orange and gold bracelet perfectly.
This outfit is the perfect spring day outfit. This white top is adorable and I love the neckline and the gold embroidering. So many stores, from American Eagle to the Gap to Bloomingdales have variations of this simple shirt. Plus I love white blouses in the summertime, especially with bright shorts! I love coral, so the chino shorts (from J.Crew!) totally make me think of summer. Gold sandals are a staple in any summer wardrobe. A professional tote bag can be used with any outfit at any time of day-for class, going to lunch, out at night, or even for an interview! I also have a thing for themed charm bracelets, and this gold beach charm bracelet is definitely on my wish list.
Springtime is the best time for new clothes, a new wardrobe, and pairing together old pieces in new ways. Accessorize with bright colors, buy versatile tops that go with everything (shorts, jeans, white pants, skirts), focus on dresses because they make anyone look dressier, and find perfect summer shoes!

Like Christine mentioned yesterday, it’s still snowy and cold in lots of different places. However, today is the first day of spring! That means that sunny days, flowers, and warmer weather are right around the corner!
One thing I am loving this spring is J.Crew Factory’s popover shirts in Oxford and chambray. They are perfect for nearly any occasion. Throw one on with jeans, shorts, or a skirt and you’re instantly polished but still so comfy. You can even use it as a coverup for days at the beach! (I wish I was there now…)
However you choose to style yours, have fun with it
What are you loving this spring?

As a grandchild of Irish immigrants and being 100% Irish, I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day more than any other day of the year! I grew up outside of New York City with my Irish family so I would always be allowed to skip school on March 17 and head into NYC to march in the big parade! It was always the best time, getting to be with my family and celebrating our heritage and of course finishing the whole day off with a glorious Irish meal of Corned Beef and Cabbage! But, finding green to wear was always troublesome, so here are some of the best St. Patrick’s Day outfit ideas!

So khaki pants and sweaters are pretty much what I reach for when I get up to get ready these (wintery) mornings. I love how sweaters look layered on top of a button down or polo shirt. Not only do I love this outfit, but ‘Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ’ by O.P.I. (pictured to the left), is probably my absolute nail color of all time. I just had to show it off in this O.O.T.D.!

While online shopping over the weekend, I could not get over how awesome so many of the pieces on The Gap website were! The Gap is one of my absolute favorite places to shop for cute, and very affordable preppy clothing, shoes, and accessories.
Here are three of my favorite outfit looks from The Gap website:
This outfit looks so comfy and casual! I love the color pops of yellow and purple from the shoes and sweater.
This lady is looking fierce in this outfit by The Gap! I love the ruffles on her shirt, they definitely top off this very professional look!
Shoes: (Yellow pumps unavailable, try these Oxfords in “creamy yellow” as a substitute! ) $69.95
How adorable would wearing this outfit be on the Fourth of July this summer?! (No, it is absolutely not too early to start thinking about summer fashion ) Love the geometric pattern!

There are so many ways to add fun pops of color into your wardrobe. My favorite way is usually with a fun sweater or shirt, but you can also let your accessories add spunk. Pink is one of my favorite colors and is definitely a mood-booster when you’re feeling a bit out of it. So, next time you’re feeling like you’re in a wardrobe rut–which is easy to do in the winter months!–think pink!

As a requirement for some of the classes I will be taking next semester, I have to document quite a few observation hours. So, a few days ago, I visited my old high school and shadowed a few of my old high school science teachers. In the future, I plan to become a high school science teacher, myself. Take a look at this ‘OOTD’…it features what I wore on that day of observation!

Hey guys! I hope y’all had a fabulous holiday! Lucky for me, I’ve still got a little bit more celebrating to do! On Christmas Eve, my dad’s parents and one of his sisters comes to our house to exchange gifts. Then on Christmas Day, my mom’s side of the family comes for brunch and to exchange gifts. Tonight, all of my dad’s siblings and my two cousins will head to my dad’s parents house for dinner to finish the celebrating! Needless to say, I’m going to need a vacation from my vacation! Just kidding, but I am getting pretty tired!
One more Christmas Dinner means one more outfit to plan! After Friday night, you’ll most likely find me in leggings and a fleece until I head back to school… #lazygirl
Anyways, here’s what I’m planning on wearing tomorrow to dinner…let’s just pray there’s no snow and the temperatures don’t drop too much!
