Since I am just getting back after taking a little mini-break from the blog, I wanted to keep my first post back light, fun, + easy! So today we will be doing a little bit of girl chat + talking about some Spring inspiration. I always enjoy seeing other bloggers be casual and chat on their blogs, it’s so refreshing! So I’m trying to incorporate a little bit of the same so you guys can get to know me a little bit more.
One | How seriously stinking cute are these leopard sandals! Do you ever have that one thing on your wish list that you can’t justify no matter how hard you try? That’s these sandals for me! They are 100% not practical for my everyday life, and I probably have exactly 2 outfits to wear with these, but they are just adorable + therefore are a need.
Two | I love accessorizing with tassels in the Spring, they’re so fun! I tend to keep my looks really simple, aka almost my entire closet is full of solid simple silhouettes, so I think adding a fun piece of jewelry really gives it something extra without getting too far out of my comfort zone. Sometimes I feel like a bad blogger because I’m not pattern mixing, wearing a ton of florals, don’t have the latest it bag and pair of shoes that everyone else has, and ALL THAT, but that’s just not me! I’ve gotten into trouble before because I’ve wanted to buy something super trendy that all the other bloggers have, and I’m just like “Wait Rachel, you don’t actually like this item! Don’t buy it!” Does anyone else ever feel this way? It’s weird to feel bad for not liking something you feel like you’re supposed to like. Like flatform sandals. All the rage. I just. cant. get. on. board. I’m sorry! Rant over.
Three | It’s part of my dream in life to own every nude and pink MAC lipstick, which isn’t going so well considering I only own Creme Cup and Snob. Ha! I have a secret Pinterest board dedicated to rows and rows of organized beautiful MAC lipsticks, which is totally and completely weird, but I’m a real fan and when I’m a fan I go hard. Pictured here is a snap of Creme Cup, the ultimate everyday nudish pink that is perfect in Spring! It brings such a gorgeous light color to your lips. Highly recommend for all skin tones!
Four | I’m dying to get my hands on a new blush palette, and personally, I think this is the way to go when purchasing blush period! This baby is $60 and comes with 5 blushes + 1 highlighter. Like why not?! When they are normally $20-40 a piece you may as well just invest in one of these. I lust after the NARS blush palettes every single year, and this year it’s gonna happen! Playing with brighter blushes instantly brightens up your day to day makeup for Spring.
Five | When your heart says DVF wrap dress + your bank account says nah, you settle for a Free People version instead! (which isn’t really settling by the way). Like I said, I don’t get too crazy with patterns and colors, but I love this simple floral design! It’s so feminine + classic. If you don’t have a wrap dress yet for Spring or Summer this is a great option! Here is another less expensive option.
Six | I have ranted + raved about this jacket and have zero plans of stopping! It’s currently 40% off so if you’re in need of a Spring jacket now is the time to grab it. It doesn’t look like much in the picture, but in person it’s the prettiest shade of coral and has a very flattering fit. Plus, it’s warm enough to get you through high 40’s-50’s type of weather + light enough to wear as a layer.
Seven | I love a good sleek classy bag for Spring! Bonus points because it has tassels! I’ve seen a ton of white bags trending this Spring, so I was really happy to find one that fits my style. Tory Burch is the queen of classic + affordable handbags.
Eight | Every girl needs one layered necklace. This one is perfect and only $20! Add to cart, please.
Nine | I love that denim overalls are making their way back in style! I mean, don’t we all remember wearing these as kids?! I find them so comfortable and you can easily dress them super casual or add some flair with fun sandals and an off the shoulder sweater underneath.
Ten | I. am. obsessed. The absolute last thing I need is another pair of sunglasses, but these white ones are giving me all the Spring vibes. You won’t believe the price! Nathan always gets on me about buying sunglasses, but when they are less than $15 a pair…need I say more?
Eleven | Love this little floral belt! I think it would be so pretty with a plain white blouse tucked in. The perfect amount of subtle Spring flair that’s totally appropriate for the office!
Twelve | This top. White jeans. Wedges. White Sunnies. Perfect casual Spring look in my look! I love the tie knot in front. It’s so different from other tops I’ve seen this Spring! The knot placement is going to be really flattering for all body types, because it will be really slimming on your waist.
Thirteen | I’m forfeiting a new pair of tennis shoes this year for something like this instead. I think they will go with so much more! I don’t wear a lot of athletic gear in public, so I really only need tennis shoes for the gym. These are going to be so cute with jeans, shorts, and dresses! They also come in a few other colors.
I hope you guys enjoyed the Spring Inspiration + girl chat today! What’s giving you major Spring inspo right now?
