We are still all mourning the loss of my grandma, but like I said in my previous post, it is comforting to know where she is now. I want to thank those of you who have written, messaged, commented, or texted to share your condolences. The family appreciates it greatly.
I don’t want to wallow in my grief on here. I hope that my grandma’s life can be a great example and reminder to us that life is short and what truly matters is how we live our lives, not what we wear.
So many fashion blogs exist today with the sole purpose of trying to make you feel like you need the newest and greatest of whatever the blogger was just given by a brand. And don’t get me wrong, I love writing about clothes I find, good deals, and the latest trends, but I don’t want this to be a place like the rest of them. I haven’t wanted it to be like that ever, but sometimes it’s easier to stay on the surface level and forget our real passions. My goal is to create a space that is uplifting, inspiring, and educational. Not to make you feel like you NEED something new all the time.
That being said, if you are looking for some spring clothes, I’ve still got you covered. God made me with an artist’s heart so I love looking for beauty in many forms and sharing it with people. So as long as I keep enjoying showing you the things that catch my eye, I’ll keep telling you about them. 🙂
The Dress: I almost don’t want to tell you how inexpensive this green floral dress is because I don’t want you to think it’s not good… but I kinda have to tell you because this is a sponsored post. Ok, here goes… it’s $12. Can you believe it? I love the material, the fit, and the quality seems good too. It also comes in navy with pink flowers and powder blue with white flowers. I sized up to a large because I wanted a loose fit and for it to be long enough (I’m around 5’10”).
The dress is a little particular in my opinion because the material is delicate so I plan to wash it with my other delicate pieces and hang it to dry (we hang most of our clothes anyway). And the only thing I would change about this dress is that I wish it were lined. It’s a relatively easy problem to solve, but I still like it when semi-transparent things come with liners. With pants I wore my black tank top under to hide my bra and when I wear it as a dress I have a dress liner that I can use.
But I adore this dress. I called this post “Spring into Summer Dress” because I think it’s great with jeans now and it will be great with bare legs this summer! It’s one of my most favorite things I’ve ever bought and I can’t wait to wear it to work one of these days soon!
Pants: These are my ever-favorite American Eagle high-rise jeggings (rly cheap) in the dark wash. I wear them constantly and only switch them out when I need to wash them. I wish I were kidding about that. I’ve 100% never found a pair of jeans I like better, not even any expensive designer brands! When I buy these I buy a size down from my usual because I like how they stretch, but I keep thinking I should try on a bigger size and see if I like that too. They have so much stretch that I think a 4 would be just fine, but my original reason for sizing down was that 1) they might stretch out and 2) if I fit into a smaller size I may as well wear that.
Shoes: These shoes were something I bought last summer on sale and I wore them right up until it started snowing. I like the color because it works with outfits in any season, especially summer and fall. I found them in some different colors. The dusty rose regular priced, but the blush is on sale!
Bag: This Michael Kors handbag is my favorite color so Beckett may have practically talked me into getting it. Of course I wanted it, but I thought the color may be too bold so I was slightly hesitant. It also comes in a gorgeous pink,blue, black, and red. If you’re interested in this bag or this bag in another color, I will link the colors available online here, but I encourage you to go find your nearest MK outlet store because we got mine for about 80% off retail! Sadly, you can’t find that online.
