spring style inspiration

After a week in palm springs, i’m ready to fully embrace warm weather style. It’s not quite warm enough in Raleigh just yet and half my clothes still need to be unpacked, but a girl can dream! I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what makes a killer wardrobe and I think the key ingredient is feeling awesome about every aspect - style, fit, comfort. This spring comfort is really calling my name and I want all the comfy pants! And no, that doesn’t only mean leggings and sneaks… What it does mean is:

my newest love

I don’t think anyone who truly knows me will be surprised about this, but I have fallen in love with overalls. I knew it was bound to happen. My dad’s signature style is overalls.

I mean there’s about 1 million ways to style them (maybe a post for another day?), they work for all types of weather, they are practical, and they’re stylish. What’s not to love?

march resolution: embracing winter style

I know that come March, most people are dying for winter to be over. I hate sitting in a waiting mentality though and so instead, I’ve decided this year to really embrace the cold weather style for the next month and then once March is over, I’ll let myself go whole hog into the warm weather attitude. This does two things: prevents me from sitting in the bad attitude of “I hate cold weather” and allows me to look at my clothing from a “what do I want to wear more of before I can’t wear it anymore.”
