Spring Shoe Essentials

Spring Shoe Essentials

Let’s be real for a second: Spring is probably the BEST season for fashion. People are finally emerging from their winter layers and ready to lighten up their wardrobe with pastel colors, floral prints, and more loose-fitting clothing.

Although there are many downsides to being born and raised in Florida, I have to say that one of the biggest perks is that we tend to see spring and warmer weather more quickly than those living further up north. Us Floridians are used to the heat, so the brief cold snap this past winter was pretty rough for us! I’m definitely ready to have temperatures back in the 70s soon, but I know I’ll be kicking myself when summer and 90 degree weather rolls around in a few months!

Today I wanted to share a post about some spring shoe essentials I think everyone should own (including myself, since I’m a struggling college student who can’t afford her expensive fashion taste.) A huge plus to this post is that almost all of these shoes can be found on Nordstrom Rack’s online website, which will save you a lot of money if you’re not willing to pay the normal full price on shoes that you like, which I totally agree with! Shoes are expensive nowadays, so I like to find the best deals possible before buying them.

As always, the links to everything will be shared at the bottom of the post if you see something that you’re just dying to get your hands on!

As you can see, I’ve been really loving pastel colors, low block-heeled sandals, and shoes with ankle straps on them! I think that these elements just add a little pop of fun to a pair of shoes and you can easily dress any of them up or down, which is always a great benefit.

I hope y’all have been having a great week so far and I’ll see you in my next post!

Denim + Hats

If there’s two things I love in this world, it’s denim and hats. Both of these items are staples in my wardrobe, and I think I wear denim shorts and a baseball hat to class a good 4 days a week when the weather is warmer.

This winter season, I’ve been trying to experiment more with different types of hats, such as berets and the oh-so-popular “Greek fisherman hats.” The fisherman style hat that I brought into this post was actually my grandfather’s hat that I found in one of his boxes in our family’s storage unit. Needless to say, I was more than happy when I found this hat since they’re definitely in style right now! Plus, it feels good to be able to wear some of my family’s old clothing items and introduce them in a modern outfit.

In today’s post, I have three outfits I want to share with you that incorporate both denim and hats (as well as white tops, coincidentally). This is my first time doing a post like this, so don’t mind my “modeling” face! It definitely needs some work…

Fashion Wishlist #1

Happy Wednesday y’all!

I’m back with another post, and today I wanted to start a new mini “series” of fashion wishlists on my blog! Obviously, I can’t just post one of these wishlists since I’m always yearning for new pieces to add to my wardrobe, so I’ll be (hopefully) making this more of a monthly thing.

I don’t really think I have a word to describe my style. I’m sort of all over the place, if I’m being honest! I’ve always loved a retro look, with my favorite era being the 60s and 70s, and I strived to dress in a vintage style when I was back in high school. Nowadays, I still like to incorporate some of those elements into my wardrobe (though not as often anymore), as well as trying to dress in a more “grown up” and mature sort of way with some preppy touches here and there.

That being said, these wishlists are going to be like how I described my style: all over the place. I don’t like to restrict myself by buying clothes that just have one central style or theme, so these posts will be full of clothes and accessories that I simply like, no matter if they match together or not. At the moment, I’m dreaming of warm weather and fun, preppy clothes, so that might be a big portion of these wishlists for now!

Now that that’s out of the way, here is my first fashion wish list:

Right now, I’m obsessing over bright colors (as you could probably tell) and I’m really wanting to incorporate more southern-inspired pieces into my everyday wardrobe. I’m hoping that warmer weather and blue skies will be right around the corner to wash away the bland and dreary days we’ve been having so far, but if that doesn’t happen soon, these bright colors will help to bring a little fun into my days!

I can’t wait to do more posts like this and maybe even adding more specific wishlists for certain events, seasons, colors, styles, etc. throughout this series.

As always, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read my blog! It means the absolute world to me.
