Spring '15 Trend Watch | 1970s Style

I don't know about you gals but we think decade trends are super fun! From flare jeans to peasant tops and floppy hats, we are all about the 1970s boho glam this season! There's just something about fun elements such as flowing dresses, a fringe bag and 70s shoes that adds a carefree feel to summer that we crave. Accessorize with some oversized sunglasses and chunky gold jewelry and you are ready to head to a music festival or night on the town. What 70s style pieces are you wearing right now?

Polka Dots & Poor Lighting


Wearing – Blazer: Target {similar} | Tank: Nordstrom {On sale!} | 
Jeans: Old Navy | Shoes: Nine West {old; similar} | Ring: BaubleBar
Watch: Vince Camuto | Necklace: J.Crew {old} | Purse: c/o ShopBop

We all know those fashion bloggers whose pictures are curated to perfection with picturesque backgrounds, perfectly styled coifs and ensembles. I think it's safe to say there's no need for jealousy over here. We're just basic bitches blogging. :-) From poor lighting (as seen today, yikes!) and windy days to accessories gone wild and my most recent comment "Help! My face has fallen and it can't get up!", we do our best to be authentic and share with our readers the trials and tribulations of the blogging world, along with some fun fashion on the side. As 8-5ers we are always rushing to get outfit photos taken over lunch before running errands, wolfing down our food and finishing the rest of our workday. Super fun right?

On another note–how adorable is this Rebecca Minkoff Satchel?! I got her during ShopBop's recent sale and I can say that I'm totally in love with the shape and color. The aloe tone is perfect for spring and definitely brightens up this black and white look. (Thank god, because thanks to a super overcast day our normally perfect brick wall spot was a little too shady for this girl's liking.)

#FashionBloggerProblems

Notice anything weird in most of these photos?

Top: Decree | Neklace: Mixit | Pumps: Mossimo (old) |
Earrings: Anthropologie | Watch: Michael Kors | Clutch: From Italy

Thaaaaat's right. My necklace is flipped up in half of these photos. But, I wore this look to the office, it was super windy out and we were trying to snap them in a hurry because well, we have to work and can't spend the day taking pictures of ourselves (they won't pay us for that). #FashionBloggerProblems

As an added bonus, this day started off with a hail storm which damaged all of our cars. Oh, and did I mention it was also my birthday that day? Moving on... Happy Monday! :)

Blushing Blooms

Wearing – Jacket: Express | Top: J.Crew |  Jeans: Old Navy | Necklaces: Etsy {custom order} | Earrings: ILY Couture {sold out) | Shoes: T.J. Maxx | Sunglasses: Burberry | Purse: Michael Kors

My outfit posts have been feeling pretty lackluster as of late. It is totally an odd concept for me to have to classify my outfit as blog-worthy vs. boring. OR better yet that moment when you get dressed and think your outfit looks great, but it ends up not translating well in photos. Major buzzkill right there! I'm sure my friends out in blog-land know exactly what I'm talking about.

When I got dressed this particular morning, I was totally uninspired–per my norm–and throwing on whatever I could grab that looked somewhat cute together. Even thought I had just worn this jacket for a Midwest Fashion Week (as seen here) event, I love its comfort and soft spring color. After all, how can you go wrong with a blush moto jacket after all? Add some lace, light gray skinny jeans, fun accessories and ta-da–blog-worthy look achieved. Oh, and the pink tulips? While being the perfect spring flower, they also make for the perfect fashion blogger accessory–and bee attractors. (Please note Kacie is terrified of bees and ran into Trader Joe's when she saw the swarm around the flowers, while yelling for me to grab her a bouquet.)

The Icing On The Feet

 

A casual, spring Friday at the office calls for a casual, spring-inspired outfit. Unfortunately, it was in the thirties and snowing but I wore the springy outfit anyway! I grabbed these adorable pink TOMS at Nordstrom a few weeks back and can't wait to wear them more and more as the weather warms up. As if I needed another reason to indulge in these cute shoes, the color is called 'pink icing', hence the title of this post because that is just the icing on the cake, my friends. Keeping them clean should be interesting...I accidentally dripped Diet Coke on them just before we took these photos but I mean, it's Diet Coke so I can't be mad at it (kinda like those Sour Patch Kids commercials, right??). :) Add my favorite arm candy –– a sparkly Kate Spade bow bracelet and pink-faced Michael Kors watch –– and I was ready to conquer the last day of a busy work week!

Regal Cravings | Shopbop Friends & Family Event

We know you all love a good sale, so we're just doing our due diligence by letting you in on a little secret: the Shopbop Friends and Family Event starts TODAY!

Since the weather is finally starting to warm up, we've been scouring the internet in search of the season's latest styles to add to our closet, like a good pair of light wash jeans - perfect with lightweight booties or wedges on a sunny Spring day. A crisp white dress is another must, to wear to the office or even to weekend brunch. Rompers are a newer style fave for us and we've been on the hunt for a perfect fit for quite some time. A classic black romper is perfect for dressing up, or down, and can be found in a variety of shapes and cuts to fit every body type. And while Marsala may be the 2015 color of the year, pastel pink is currently winning the race in our eyes! A pink bag adds a fun pop of color to any Spring-inspired look along with some sparkly designer jewelry and voila!

Now that we've shared a few of our current cravings for Spring, so be sure to browse the website and snag some faves of your own! Don't forget to use the discount code SPRING25 to save 25% now through April 10th at 4am EDT (some restrictions apply - see here)!

Shades of Grey

Wearing - Sweater: Express {old} | Top: J.Crew {old} | Jeans: Old Navy | Shoes: Nine west {old; similar} | Bracelets: David Yurman, Tiffany & Co | Watch: Michael Kors

Do you ever have those days when you are feeling just blah? I still wanted to look cute but at the same point, I also wanted my outfit to match the dreary overcast day and and convey a neutral color palette. I'm definitely not one to shy away from a black and white ensemble, so I gave this outfit a whirl and actually liked the tone on tone look. I'll keep this super short and sweet today, but do any of you have those days when you feel blah and your outfit totally reflects your mood?

Stay tuned–I promise to resume your typically chipper and upbeat programming tomorrow. :-)
