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!

Striped Button Down with Moto Jacket

Tariq and I went out for dinner and drinks on Friday and it was SO damn windy (and just a little bit freezing), so I’d like to apologize in advance for these…um, very winded, slightly blurry, kind of funny-faced photos. I swear I was happy. 💁‍♀️

This was an incredibly easy look for an impromptu date night, made up of items most of us probably already have in our closet: the classic striped button-down (button-up?), dark wash denim, black booties and a moto/biker jacket. This look truly takes you from desk to dinner with ease. Keep a moto jacket on-hand or in your car and you can easily swap out your blazer or office cardigan.

These are one of the Topshop jeans I got in my Trunk Club (blog post coming soon) and I can’t get over the super skinny, flattering fit. Fyi, they do run a bit small/very skinny, so you may want to consider sizing UP! Here I’m wearing my normal size but easily could have gone one size up.

I know we’re heading into spring but I also highly recommend these Marc Fisher ankle boots (from my first Trunk Club) if you’re in need of a really good pair. Sometimes I’ve disliked black booties in the past for making an outfit feel…clunky? Not as sleek?…but these are a winner. They’re just cool-as-can-be and give a really sleek, chic vibe with any outfit. You guys know I’ve been all about adding higher quality wardrobe staples to my collection and these are definitely one of them.

Heading into spring, I love this exact same outfit with light wash boyfriend fit jeans (like these Levi’s), nude flats and swap out the striped shirt for crisp white! So maybe it’s not the exact same outfit but it’s an easy variation.

My exact J.Crew shirt is old (gotta love a closet staple you get years out of 🙌🏼), so I’m linking dupes!

Fact: One of the quickest ways to comfort is shearling. From shearling and sherpa socks to sherpa sweats, pullovers and sweaters…having this ultra-soft texture in your closet this season can help make you feel cozy in an instant. It’s one of those looks that oozes casual comfort and, in my opinion, is a great staple style to have in your collection. 

With the start of fall and all through winter, out come the teddy coats in shades of brown like tan, camel and cognac. These are great for adding warmth to your wardrobe but there’s something about creamy winter white that gives a fresh and lighter feel this time of year—something that’s so often welcome and needed as we’re wishing for and dreaming of spring.

Like I mentioned, I love the way these cozy styles like sherpa, fleece and faux shearling add an almost instant casual appeal to any outfit. When a silky or satiny top feels a bit too dressy or a fitted knit seems too “slick,” adding this texture in a layer can have a really great casual-cool effect. It’s also just an easy layer to throw on with almost everything for day-to-day wear, especially in a creamy tone like this—it goes with everything!

I layered mine from Nordstrom (similar here) over a really great long-sleeved knit knot-front top I picked up recently from Madewell and also available here. I love the fit and feel of this one and it’s one of those staple styles you can wear every season. 

Of course, I pulled out a trusted pair of high rise Levi’s 721 jeans (tts) and slipped into my M.Gemi Corsa ankle boots for all day comfort. I can totally see this cozy white sherpa style taking me into spring with white or cropped denim and sneakers or even being great beach days and summer nights with cutoff shorts. 

As always, thank you so much for reading!
