Spring Details and Delight

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

As February is coming to a close, so are the layers and bulk we've all been wearing during the past few months. I'm ready to say "ovua" to the Winter season, with excitement for delightful afternoons. 

With each season, I like to re-organize my closet, tucking away jackets, vests, and sweaters, to make room for a new and freshened up look. In most cases, I'm usually left with a bare closet and basics, which I much prefer. It gives me the freedom to create a palette of new colors, patterns, and silhouettes that are fitting for warmer days. Subdued colors and romantic details have taken my interest, which may be of no surprise, if you know me well. My wardrobe is starting to feel pretty and feminine once again ... a bit of sophisticated elegance. Although I have transitioned to more of a casual gal these days, there's some excitement knowing that my everyday looks are detailed in beauty.

{ Spring Basics + Flirty Denim }

Madewell is a place I often go to for classic pieces and high quality basics. Highlighted in the store recently, I noticed how simplistic, yet elegant this top was. The mini pleating detail throughout gives you the option to dress it up or down and the fabric is so soft and light on your skin. I paired it with a jean skirt, which I think we'll be seeing more of this Spring. Jean Skirts are fun + flirty (a bit more forgiving than jeans) and you'll find many at knee length and below this season, for a well put together look. This Madewell top is available in many colors, so pick up a couple in your favorite shades! You'll be glad to see how well this new Spring basic compliments your current wardrobe.

{ Pretty in Eyelet + Ruffles }

Nothing screams more pretty + feminine, than an eyelet print and ruffled details. Eyelet prints  usually pop up every Spring season in new and re-invented ways and I love that I see more of this cut-out design in tops, mixed with other girly details. Paired with pretty ruffles and flowy silhouettes, they are a match made in heaven.  Both of these tops from H&M have become well loved and they work perfectly with a casual pair of jeans or a slim pencil skirt. Try an eyelet print or ruffled top with patterned bottoms: from stripes to floral prints, they work fantastically with both!

{ Romantic + Soft in Subdued Colors }

All Winter long, I was wearing a load of black and grey with occasional warm tones. Once February hit, I was ready to move on to romantic and subdued colors, that would really soften my look and add some elegance to what I was wearing. Blush is one of my favorite colors to decorate with, which is almost always incorporated (in some regard), into the spaces I decorate. But I soon found myself picking up more transitional pieces in this shade. My complexion looks so soft when I wear this color and I feel romantic, even with more casual looks. This is a color that brings about confidence, elegance, and beauty ... and who doesn't want that! Blush works just like a neutral, so make it a great alternative to your white and beige tops. 

{ Beautifully Detailed in Accessories }

This Spring, I committed to wearing larger and bolder earrings! Hoops really, with a boho vibe to them. I wanted to highlight my new mid-length haircut and hoops did it for me! Playing with my hair a lot now-a-days, these hoops seem to highlight any hairstyle I choose that day. Whether it's wearing my hair parted in the middle or with an exaggerated side part, these pretties go with anything and everything. Go with larger hoops, as they'll give you a lengthened look, which I can really appreciate it!  

For an amped up take on your classic sneakers, choose a shoe with simple details that pack a punch. I love wearing my Van's SQ-8 cut-out slip-on's, which are my current go-to's for all my casual days. These sneaks add a little more to my outfits and I adore them so much that I'm tempted to buy a second pair to have on hand, when these gets old. They're currently available in store at Nordstrack Rack, but a few others are linked below with a similar pattern. 

Sophisticated details in casual wear has added much personality to my wardrobe, while making me feel confident and beautiful on the day to day. What is your favorite Spring detail?  Be sure to see all my picks below for the looks shown and for similar options. Have a wonderful day friends!

Warmly ~
