Bandanas are making a comeback this spring and summer, and I couldn’t be more excited. There are so many timeless ways to wear bandanas, from in your hair, to around your neck, to accessorizing your handbag! Bandanas are super cheap and are sold everywhere from fancy clothing boutiques to your neighborhood Walmart, making this trend affordable AND adorable. Here are a few of my favorite looks sporting bandanas this spring and summer.

  1. In the hair: Wearing your hair up in a ponytail or a bun can get old, so why not spice it up with a bandana? It will give you a fun, western vibe and will keep your hair out of your face and off your neck on warm summer days.
  2. Around your neck: Chokers are making a comeback, and bandanas are a great way to ease yourself into the trend. They are a classic fashion statement that has been worn throughout the years. Your mom probably wore them around her neck when she was your age! They give any outfit a dash of color and a pop of style.
  3. On your handbag: Tying a simple bandana around the handle of your handbag takes it up a notch. If you carry a simple handbag and are wearing a more muted outfit, knotting a colored bandana around the handle gives your outfit some character AND a pop of color!

These simple ways to incorporate bandanas into your summer wardrobe. What are your favorite ways to wear bandanas?

Spring showers don’t just bring May flowers, they bring, well, rain! I use every rainy day as an excuse to try out my rainy day outfits. Rain coats are no longer just a way to stay dry, they are also a fashion statement! Here are 3 of my favorite rain coat styles.

  1. Feminine: This coat is so cute – it has a fun feminine flare with the flowy back and blush color.
  2. Colorful: I love statement rain coats like this one. The color is so adorable, and it is a classic fashion statement. Very East Coast! This coat takes a simple outfit to the next level.
  3. Iridescent: This coat is the most fun rain coat! It’s iridescent coloring is so unique and is a cool way to rock your own personal style.

Rainy days don’t stand a chance against these adorable jackets!

I was recently in Florida and noticed a fun spring fashion trend that I and am loving – ruffles! As it warms up in Illinois where I live, I have a feeling I will see this trend start popping up here at home. My favorite thing about this trend is the whimsical and fun flare. Here are a few of my favorite ruffle tops this season

  1. Cut out sleeves: This shirt is completely unique! I love the way it has the off-the-shoulder ruffles along with the tank top style sleeves. This would look so cute half-tucked into some white skinny jeans!
  2. Bell sleeves and beyond: This shirt has it all, from babydoll style ruffles on the bottom to frilly sleeves and a lace-up back. There is so much going on, and so much to love! I feel like this is a great fun and flowey top for girls days or date nights.
  3. Off-the-shoulder: This top takes off-the-shoulder to a whole new level because it has 2 layers of ruffles! It would look great half tucked into some skinny jeans or even paired with a fun summer skirt.

If you are looking to add some feminine, fun, flirty flare to your wardrobe this spring, I think these shirts are a great place to start!

Where I live, spring is an awkward time between winter and summer where it is cold in the mornings, and steamy in the evenings, so it is so hard to pick out what to wear! You don’t want to be cold in the morning, but you also don’t want to be hot in the afternoon. Here are a few winter to spring transitional outfits that I have found do the trick.

  1. Shorts and a sweater: Your legs may be a little chilly in the morning, but your arms and torso are nice and cozy. Then, in the afternoon, you can shed the sweater and be perfectly comfortable!
  2. Sundress and a jean jacket: Again, your legs may be a bit chilly in the morning, but come afternoon you will be sitting pretty. I love the look of pairing spring sundresses with jean jackets. It gives a casual feel to an otherwise dressy outfit.
  3. Skinnies and an oversized sweater: If you are totally against the idea of your legs being a bit chilly in the A.M., then grab your favorite pair of ripped jeans, a short-sleeved tee, and an oversized cardigan. Once the day warms up, shed the cardigan and you will still be stylin’.

What is your favorite spring ensemble?

Gingham is the classic picnic print. It is a great spring and summer pattern, not just for picnicking in the park! You can find many ways to wear this classic print for every occasion. Here are a few ways I have found!

  1. On a date: Pair a fun and flirty gingham top with some simple skinnies and a cute purse. The top will give a touch of your feminine side, whereas the jeans keep it low-key.
  2. To the beach: I am obsessed with gingham swimwear! It is so vintage and fun. I happen to own this suit! I love the high-waisted bottoms that help slim my hips. And the off-the-shoulder sleeves of the top add some extra style to the ensemble.
  3. For girl’s day: A fun dress is a must for a girls day out! Grab a fun and flowy dress like the one pictured and get ready to hang with your gals. I love the ruffled shoulders and synched waist of this look. It is so girly and sweet!
  4. At the office: Keep it classy at the office by wearing a gingham shirt tucked into a skirt. I love this look because it is just a touch of preppy.
  5. Out shopping: Rompers are one of my favorite spring and summer pieces, so obviously a gingham romper makes the list! This romper is cozy, cute, and completely classy. You can take this look from shopping to picnic to date as easy as pie. So versatile!
  6. Lounging around: Keep it cozy with a pair of cotton gingham shorts. I love this pair because of the tie-waist. It really gives off a fun retro vibe, don’t you think?

Gingham is a timelessly classy look. Do you have a favorite picnic-patterned piece? Comment below!

I’ve noticed a new trend coming up through the ranks and I have to say, I love it! It is the new “bandanna choker” trend. It is retro, classic, and a great way to accessorize! Plus, bandannas are super inexpensive. Here are a few of my favorite ways this trend is being styled.

  1. Mixed patterns: This is a fun and unique way to wear the trend. Mix stripes and florals and mix colors with solids for a fun fashion statement.
  2. Trendy: This pairs two trendy looks – the off-the-shoulder trend and the choker trend! This photo is from the Instagram of one of my favorite local boutiques, MOD. I love the solid paired with the print. Such a fun look!
  3. Classic: This is the easiest and most simple way to wear the trend. Pair a solid blue, black, or white shirt with a red bandanna for a fun pop of color and retro flare.

Are you a preppy gal? Do you WANT to be a preppy gal? If you said yes to either of those questions, you are going to want to keep reading! Spring, to me, is a time for pastels and pretty dresses. And preppy styles, of course! Spring is full of mild weather, blooming flowers and blue skies, perfect preppy attire weather if you ask me! Here is my guide to everything essential for the springtime prepster.

  1. Sweet sundresses: I LOOOVE when the weather is warm enough to break out my sundresses! Sundresses are great for running around town doing errands, for a day out with the gals, for Church, or even date night!2c550a2f63d74ded18a84f691c2825fe
  2. Floral skirts: So feminine and so classic! After months of hiding your legs under jeans and leggings, let them free in a sweet floral skirt. Pair with a simple pastel blouse to balance the look.
  3. Pastel button-ups: Oxfords are a preppy wardrobe staple. Pretty pastel ones are a perfect addition to your springtime get-up. Experiment with patterns like gingham to mix things up! Roll the sleeves when it starts warming up, and pair with a monogrammed necklace to finish the look.
  4. Classic trench coats: Springtime = rainy days galore! How do you think those May flowers get their beautiful blooms? April showers, of course! Beat the rain and chilly mornings with a classy camel trench coat. They are so versatile and timeless, so they go with just about anything!

Spring is the perfect time to rock a midi skirt. What is a midi skirt, you ask? It is a skirt that is in-between the length of a maxi skirt and a mini skirt. It comes to your knees and is a classy, retro piece that I love! Midi skirts are perfect for spring because they are not too long so you don’t get too hot, and not to short so you don’t get chilly! Here are a few of my favorite spring midi skirt styles.

  1. Floral: I love this floral midi from Lulus. It has sort of a watercolor look to it. The floral print is so feminine and darling! This ensemble would be the perfect grad party wear.a2aec59da4975e57c00706b85a5f7414
  2. Pastel: Pastel midis are chic and classic. They give you an understated, elegant look that is just timeless. If you desire a simple, sweet ensemble, pair a pastel midi skirt with a simple sweater and wedges or heels. This is a great spring church outfit or brunch look!
  3. Bright: If you are looking to make a statement, then grab a bright colored midi! I love this hot pink retro-ish skirt. It gives off a fun, carefree vibe. This skirt is also from Lulus!pink

So, what do you think, will you try the midi skirt style this spring?

It is a rule of thumb to never wear white to a wedding, but what about to a bridal shower? Not many people talk about the do’s and dont’s of bridal shower attire, so that is what I am here for! Spring and summer are prime wedding season, and one of my friends is getting married this summer, so this is good to know! Usually, sweet, fun, and girly are three good adjectives to describe shower attire. If you are attending a bridal shower soon, check out this style guide to get the low-down.

  1. First, floral: Floral patterns qualify as fun AND girly! I have been really into floral prints lately. They look so fresh and sweet. They even give a slight retro vibe! Here is my floral pick. 

    Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

  2. Then comes sweet and simple: Soft colors are always a safe choice when it comes to spring and summer wear, especially bridal shower attire. This pastel halter dress encompasses the “sweet and simple” vibe perfectly! 
  3. Finally, girly: What is more girly than ruffles? Nothing. I am convinced. A ruffled off-the shoulder dress is a simply adorable choice of attire. Wear with sandals or wedges for a sweet summer vibe.

Next time you are heading to a bridal shower, think “sweet, floral, and girly” when picking out your outfit and you will be in good shape!

Spring is here! This  means that you will need an adorable ensemble to wear to church and any Easter get-togethers you may be attending! My favorite spring article of clothing is my tulle skirt. It is so fun and flowy! Here are some tips on how to style your tulle skirt this Easter.tulle 3

  1. Keep the top trimmed: You want to pair your tulle skirt with a tighter top. A loose shirt could make the outfit look frumpy, but a tight top keeps the attention on the skirt and give you a classy look.
  2. Layer with neutrals: If you are going to wear a printed top, keep the tones neutral! I also love pairing it with a jean jacket when I am keeping it casual.
  3. Accessorize casually: When you are wearing something as frilly as a tulle skirt, you want to keep your accessories casual so that they accentuate the skirt and don’t make the outfit look too flashy.
  4. Make a necklace exception: When I say keep the accessories casual, this excludes the necklace! I love spicing up my outfits with statement pieces!

 

I bought my tulle skirt at Kohl’s, it is from Lauren Conrad’s collection! It was super affordable, and it is also crazy classy!

 

Happy Easter!

XOXO, Chels
