Spring is almost here and while we’ve been lucky to have a taste of spring weather (hello, 70 degrees!), there’s still a little layering to be done this season. Having styles for these transitional months is essential and I absolutely adore pairing flirty, feminine dresses with edgy layers and details. You may remember this floral midi dress I snagged in my first Trunk Club and it’s such a sweet staple. I personally love having midi dresses in my collection because they’re versatile and flattering and can easily bridge the gap between seasons.

This particular style is definitely one you can wear in the spring and summer months with strappy sandals and wedges, as well as into fall and winter with cozy cardigans and outerwear. I added an edgy vibe with a moto jacket here but a denim jacket would work well for spring, as well!

I love how this midi dress has subtle puff sleeves for interest plus the perfect slit placement, so it doesn’t become too dowdy which a floral, long-sleeve midi dress can definitely do. It also nips in at the waist just enough.

I can’t wait to keep this dress in rotation for spring and summer. It’s a great little staple to have on-hand for casual days, date night and special events. Think Easter, Mother’s Day, weekend brunches, weddings, bridal showers, etc! For reference, I’m 5’6” and have the xs.

As always, thank you so much for reading!

There’s something about an all-black outfit that makes anyone look instantly cool. I swear. I love the edgy vibe black distressed denim adds to any outfit and there’s something so sleek and effortless about pairing black with even more black. When I used to work for Stitch Fix, one of the biggest misconceptions I heard from Clients was that you can’t pair black with brown or navy—and that couldn’t be further from the truth!

I personally love the way black pairs with brown and this BlankNYC faux fur coat (currently back in stock HERE!) gives this all-black outfit a dose of needed warmth—not to mention a luxe touch. I really love how this faux fur style can so easily go from casual to dressy. You can see another holiday look wearing it with white lace in my post HERE. This jacket has been in and out of stock in the brown, so I made sure to link a few more styles below. It does also come in a few more in-stock color options like the prettiest winter white! FYI, I have the size XS.

I’ve also been loving these Madewell jeans in this washed black color. Madewell truly makes great denim you can live in—stretchy, comfy and flattering. I am typically in between a 25 and 26 and always wear a 25 in Madewell jeans.

As always, thank you so much for reading!

Disclaimer: I wore this outfit and wrote this blog post back in April and somehow never published it! I had somewhat put these rugged black 721 Levi's away for the hot summer months but now that fall is around the corner, they'll certainly be making an appearance in my everyday wardrobe rotation. And I just found them on sale for $49.95, so I thought I'd share!

I wore them with this white ruffle top from H&M paired with white slide sandals this spring but I can totally see this same outfit working with brown booties, a fedora hat or maybe an olive utility jacket or brown moto jacket for a fall spin. I really love the feminine vibe of this top paired with slightly edgy bottoms like these for a look that feels effortless and not overly girly. It's definitely easy to throw on and feel put together. 

Unfortunately, this exact top has now sold out but I did link a few dupes below for you. Definitely, don't hesitate to grab these jeans for fall! For sizing reference, I am in between sizes and sized UP to a 26 in these. I tend to do that with higher cotton-content Levi's styles. If it helps, I am also 5'6" and also cuff the hem to hit at the ankle. 

As always, thank you for reading!
