Spring Sweater

Sharing today my favorite spring sweater. I love purple so much and this sweater is so warm and cozy. Spring in New York means mild temperatures, think 50 degrees, and this sweater is so perfect for those mild spring temperatures. This sweater is from gap and under $100. It is maternity but I am also linking to non maternity sweaters as well. The lavender is also the perfect shade and compliments so well. My sweater has sold out but I linked to similar ones above. I also can’t believe these pictures were taken when I was pregnant. It is so amazing how the time flew.

I love spring scarves. They are so light weight, they come in so many fun spring prints to spice up your wardrobe and keep you warm on those chilly spring days without making you too hot. There are so many fun spring accessories but this one is one of my favorite. You can wear spring scarves with a dress, denim on denim, with a spring trench coat, and even with leggings or after working out to spice up your casual outfit. I have styled spring scarves in so many different styles and they have all looked wonderful. I hope you are adding spring scarves to your wardrobe, I feel it is a must! If you need any advice on how to transition your wardrobe to spring, read my article here. Now all we need is the spring weather to come and stay in New York!

Let me know in the comments below how you style spring scarves xoxo.

Spring Fashion – How to Transition Your Wardrobe

Today I am talking about four ways to transition your wardrobe into spring. It is still cold here in New York City and the weather can range from anywhere from 50 degrees to 70 degrees during the day and even colder at night. We are definitely checking the weather to make sure we dress appropriately. Below I am sharing four ways I am transitioning my wardrobe into spring.

  • Put away heavy winter clothes Woohoo! I do this first in my wardrobe transition. I make room for my spring pieces and to put them front and center, I put away all heavy jackets, sweaters and winter boots. In its place I bring forward my spring trench coat, light weight jackets and sweaters, and ballet flats.
  • Layers  Since the temperature can fluctuate I make sure to always bring a light weight jacket. I usually start my outfit with jeans and a tank, or short sleeve shirt, with a light weight sweater or long sleeve button down. Therefore, if its really cold I have layers plus my light weight jacket, and if the temperatures are high enough I can spend a few hours in my short sleeve shirt or light weight sweater.
  • Bright Colors  One thing I get excited about is getting to wear bright colors again. I start to put away my browns, greys, and blacks and I start to bring out my pinks, blues and whites. These spring colors are amazing in front of newly blossomed trees.
  • Spring Accessories  One of the best spring accessories are light weight spring scarves. This is a great way to keep warm when it is colder but the scarves usually come in great light colors or floral prints. Great way to add spring to your wardrobe. Also, don’t forget nothing says spring and summer is right around the corner without a great pair of sunnies. Colorful handbags are also a great way to add some spring. Swap your black bag with a light blush bag and instantly add spring to your look.

How are you transitioning your wardrobe into spring?

Easter & Cherry Blossoms

Easter-CherryBlossoms-Spring Easter-CherryBlossoms-SpringEaster-CherryBlossoms-Spring

Shirt: Boohoo / Jeans: Banana Republic / Handbag: Liz Claiborne, similar here / Boots: old similar here

Hi guys! Sharing my Easter Saturday outfit (will have my Easter Sunday outfit on the blog later this week). I am so lucky because we get to celebrate Easter twice, Saturday with my husband’s family and Sunday with my family. That means Lucas gets twice the Easter egg hunts. I snapped a few pics in our back yard before we headed out to my sister-in-laws house. Lucas was napping so we went right in front of our Cherry Blossom tree and took a few photos. The lighting was a bit too bright because it was a gorgeous day, but tried to edit the photos as best I can. Good thing we are taking a photography class this Sunday! How much do you love Cherry Blossom trees? I am so lucky I get to look out into my yard and see this beautiful tree.

I am in love with this blouse from Boohoo (and under $40) it is so romantic, but also very delicate. If you have a toddler, be warned. The top though is the perfect spring top. It is light and airy, I wasn’t too chilly wearing it in 50 degrees. I had to try a matching romantic hair do to accompany the top. I am usually not too good at those types of hair dos, especially braids although I wish I was good at them, but I am getting better at “twisted” hair dos.

Who else is so excited about spring? What is your favorite part of spring?? Xoxo.

Spring coats: old similar here, here and here. / Jeans: Banana Republic / Shoes: Nine West  / Sunglasses:Steve Madden (in store purchase)

It is starting to feel like spring here in New York City. It was 70 degrees yesterday and that made me take out my spring jacket and jump for joy. During spring I love wearing a trench coat. There are so many cute ones that you can really add a lot of style, like the collared ruffle one I am wearing in the photos above, or you can go simple and sleek with a classic trench. The best things about trenches is it really is a classic look, so you can wear it for everyday wear, running errands, to the office, and even at night when it isn’t cold enough for a heavy jacket, but you still need a light jacket to keep you warm. I feel it is a must in your spring wardrobe, it really is the perfect coat. How do you guys style your trench coats? Share any favorites below.

Crochet Vest: Forever21 / Jeans: Banana republic / Sunglasses: Steve Madden in store purchase ($10), only similar online I found is here / Shoes: Ivanka Trump (old, similar here)

How gorgeous is this crochet vest? And it is under $20, win! It has been 70 degrees here in NYC and we all have spring fever. In honor of this early spring, I thought I would share with you guys this new crochet vest. I usually do my shopping online and found this vest on the Forever21 website and loved how they styled it. I dressed this look up with heels, but I can totally see this vest worn with sandals and shorts, I think I may try that look next so you can see the versatility. I also love how it is longer in the back, it just really is super cute. It is sleeveless so you have to make sure it is warm enough to wear, but this is perfect for spring.

What are your plans for the weekend? We have a relaxing weekend of seeing friends & family and running errands. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
