Spring Transition Outfits

Hi y’all!

It’s that time of the year again where we need transitional outfits from winter to spring. Especially here in Virginia where it can go from being 30 degrees in the morning to 55 or higher by the afternoon. Add in getting all four seasons in a day (no joke, it really happens), picking an outfit for the day can be tricky.

Y’all, spring is in the air, and I love spring fashion. I love how transitional it is, meaning I can still wear some of my favorite winter pieces, but include warmer weather attire as well. I found all of these items at Loft, but I’m sure you have a variation of them already in your closet.
You can also trade out the shorts for jeans and the ballet flats for boots. If you need to dress them up for work in the winter, you could wear dress pants and ballet flats. You could also swap out these shorts for jean shorts and sandals or flip flops for a casual summer outfit.
Signature Cardigan || This is available in different colors (black, white, coral, and honeycomb). You can also get a similar cardigan that is v-neck, also available in multiple colors (navy, white, blue, and coral). 
Square Neck Tank Top || Available in multiple colors (black, white, grey, and caper-looks olive online). This is a fantastic basic that you can wear all year long. I’ve actually been looking for one since we no longer have a White House Black Market in town. They used to have the best one, and it doesn’t even look like they still carry the same one online. You could also replace this with any thick strap tank top. 
Curvy Riviera Shorts 4″ inseam || Super comfortable and easy to dress up or down depending on your top and footwear. 
Tweed Pocket Jogging Skirt || This one is an online exclusive-not found in stores unless it’s been returned. So cute, and you probably have something similar to it in your closet already. Best part is it has pockets!
Midi Drawstring Midi Skirt || Again, this is another basic that you probably already have in your closet, or at least something similar to it. 
KEDS sneakers  || This one is an online exclusive-not found in stores unless it’s been returned. Again, your probably have a similar shoe already in your closet. I have Converse and New Balance’s that I would wear instead of these KEDS.
Ballet Flats || I know you have a pair of flats in your closet, even if it’s more of a loafer style, it would still look amazing with either skirt option.
What are you looking forward to this spring?

Lilly Pulitzer Spring Fit Guide {Feb. 2 Release}

Hi y’all,

The first Spring release is in stores and online for Lilly Pulitzer! This is always exciting, because this means spring is on the way! Lilly Pulitzer typically does a release every two weeks during the Spring and Summer seasons, and about a month apart for Fall and Resort.

I took the time to try on a few items in store, and here are my thoughts on the fit:

1. Daise Stretch Maxi Dress
I am a big fan of Lilly’s stretch dresses. They fit true to size. Of course, this is a maxi so I would need to hem it (I’m 5’2″ for reference).

2. Micole Maxi Dress
Another one that fits true to size. I’d have to get this one hemmed, too.

3. Sophie Dress (this is an online exclusive)
This is a nice tshirt dress. I find with any UPF fabric, I have to go up a size or two so it doesn’t cling. This is true for this dress style as well.

4. Ophelia Dress
I took my regular dress size in this one (a small). I absolutely adore Ophelia as it is forgiving for my body type.

5. Elsa Top
This top is a Lilly favorite, and as always fits true to size.

6. Blanca Stretch Romper
I bought this in Meet Me on the Dock from Resort. I love this romper. I was in between sizes, and I ended up sizing up for more comfort when sitting.

7. Areli Pullover
This is super cute! I love the back detailing on it. Plus it’s a v-neck which is so flattering.


8. Ophelia in Lace
You will need to try this one on. I heard from some people that were shopping in store that they took their normal size or went down. I actually went up because I have broad shoulders and lace doesn’t stretch. This version of Ophelia also has a zipper. I will definitely have to get this one hemmed a tad if I decide to purchase it because of having to size up for the shoulders.

9. Cristiana Dress

True to size, so cute on! I’m normally not one for anything that is even has a slight ruffle. I tried this on today and loved it!

10. Maxcy Sweater
This is a brand new style for Lilly, and I actually really like it. It is definitely shorter in the body; however, if you have a short torso it is not cropped. If you have a regular length or long torso, it will probably be a little cropped on you. I’d purchase my normal top size. If you want, you could size up for length. Also, with the knit style, I would plan on wearing a cami underneath. Since it is a tad short, I’ll be pairing it with high waisted jeans or jean shorts.

11. Noble Fringe Cardigan
This piece is a must buy. Goes with everything. You can get it in true navy or prosecco pink. I got it in the pink.

12. Claudia Dress
This dress fits like a Skipper Dress or Sophie. I would size up since it has the UPF fabric.

What are your favorite Lilly items?

Lilly Pulitzer Resort Release

Hi Y’all,

As I mentioned in my APS post, I’ve been a Lilly lover since I was a wee one. Well, yesterday was Lilly’s last resort release. This means Spring is coming! I’ve picked a few pieces from this release that I love.

This release is full of purple/light lilac which is often not my best color, but this collection is stunning.

1. Dillon Pullover || This was a must have item for my closet. I can honestly say I have nothing like it in my closet. Plus, it goes perfectly with leggings and jeans. This fits very true to size.

2. Short Sleeve Bay Dress || I LOVE the Bay Dress. It is flattering and I’m loving the colors.

3. Romona Fringe Sweater || This is THE sweater, y’all. It is hands down one of the most flattering sweaters I own. I already owned it in black, and had to jump Periwinkle Purple.

4. Luxletic Tank || This top will always be a favorite of mine. It is always comfortable and looks good with everything.

5. Weekender High Rise Legging || I got these in the previously released True Navy. Love them. They are the perfect length for me (I’m 5’2″ so any bottom can get too long pretty quick).

What are your must haves from this release? Remember, Spring often means larger releases/collections and more often!

Lindsey

Top 5 Winter Must Haves

Hi y’all,
It’s that time of the year! It’s time for the holidays, which also means the start of cold weather here in Virginia. Now, I realize Virginia winter can be pretty mild compared to what the northeast sees, but far worse than what the more southern states see.

In order to survive, I have my 5 must have products.

1. Senegence LipSense LipBalm. I LOVE this stuff! Send me a message if you want some! This stuff is seriously incredible. I used to use chapstick all the time. Believe me when I say that this is way better. I use it maybe 3 times a day max, and my lips do not crack anymore. The one “downside” is that when you first apply it, your lips tend to peel. It does not last long and it’s the LipSense makeup that is creating the silky smooth lips that you’re looking for. Your lips would peel no matter what product you’re using, I just notice it more with LipBalm (I think it’s how fast it happens, which means your getting what you want faster!)
I can also get you any of the other Senegence products that you love, or just want to try! Plus, mention this post and get 10% off your total order and FREE shipping.

2. Tula Purifying Face Wash. Again, a holy grail product that I love. It will last you over a month and your skill will feel amazing. You also get a discount if you have it on auto-delivery.

3. A pom-pom hat. Mine is from Vineyard Vines from last year’s winter collection. However, I was browsing the Mark and Graham website and found this adorable monogramable one!

4. Yeti or S’well bottle. Y’all, you need just as much water in the winter as you do in the summer. Sometimes even more because the air isn’t as humid. Plus, you can’t pass up Lilly Pulitzer x S’wells new addition. Please keep in mind that if you see a different color online somewhere and it’s not on the Yeti website, that means someone is powder dipping it and isn’t an official Yeti product-which also means Yeti doesn’t have to stand behind it.

5. Fisherman’s Sweater. I adore these. I buy a new one every year because they’re cute, warm, and you can wear them in so many different combos. Wear it with a sweater, jeans, cords, as a second layer: the possibilities are endless!

What are your top 5 winter must haves?

Favorite Makeup Products

Hi Y’all,
I kept thinking about what I wanted this post to be about, and after trying two different ones, I finally found this idea: my favorite makeup products.
I’m so picky when it comes to makeup. My skin is sensitive in the fact if it doesn’t like the product it will break out. I’m also allergic to beeswax, so I can’t use certain products (like Burt’s Bees).
A little bit over a year ago, one of my friends started selling Senegence cosmetics.
I fell in LOVE!
It’s perfect if you’re a teacher or just a busy gal in general.

They have a wide range of products, but are most known for their LipSense product. It’s long lasting lip color. When I say long lasting, I mean anywhere from 4-18 hours! And, they’re a great price point too. I’ve personally had LipSense last through an entire holiday meal and the rest of the day’s festivities.

However, my favorite product is actually their lip balm.
This Lipbalm can be use anytime, anywhere. It helps prevent chapping, and restores lip tissue. At $20 its definitely a little pricey in comparison to other lip balms, but I will tell you a tube of this will literally last for 3 to 6 months depending on how much you use it.

Leave a comment below or message me on Instagram if you’re interested in placing an order before the holidays!

Classic Never Goes Out of Style: Investment Jewelry

Hi y’all,

As you’re reading this, I’m officially starting my new job and career!

Thinking about my new career, I thought about things I’ll be wearing every day and I know these pieces of jewelry will definitely be it!

Now, before you start thinking, this girl spent a lot of money on jewelry. Guess again! I actually got my David Yurman bracelet from Ebay (highly recommend by the way). I got my David Yurman Earrings with my rewards from Nordstrom.
My Tiffany necklace was one that I purchased at full price (at $125 for high end jewelry, it was a good price) and I literally wear it daily. So worth it to me. I’ve had it since I finished my freshman year of college and it still looks brand new. 
Do you have any favorite investment pieces that you love? Have any that you have your eye on? Let me know!
