The first official day of spring is just a few weeks away and I could not be more ready for it! I am beyond ready to put my coats and scarves away and pull out my mini dresses and sandals! I’ve recently been adding spring pieces to my wardrobe that will be perfect for the warmer months. I’ve been on the hunt for lightweight dresses and tops in pastels and neutrals and fresh denim for the new season. At the very top of my list? A great pair of espadrille platforms/wedges….my favorite spring and summer shoe!
One thing I love about a great pair of espadrilles is that I can easily take them from work to the weekend. I find espadrille wedges and platforms much more comfortable than a typical heel or wedge and LOVE them for teaching! When I set out to look for a new pair for the upcoming season, I headed straight for the Halogen section at Nordstrom. Halogen, an brand exclusive to Nordstrom, is known for it’s high quality but affordable work to weekend styles that are on trend and the perfect mix of modern and feminine. The moment I laid eyes on these platform espadrille sandals, I knew they would be the perfect spring update to my shoe collection!
This Halogen espadrille wedge is SO comfortable and I love the price point! At under $100, these cuties are comparable to a much pricier option, allowing you to get the look for less. They come in 4 great colors, but I opted for the blush, finding it the perfect shade for spring! These shoes are not only comfortable and affordable, but also super versatile. Dress them up for work or a wedding or dress them down for a lunch date and shopping with the girls!

If I had to pick ONE piece of clothing in my wardrobe to name as my all time favorite, it would have to be these overalls. I traveled down a rabbit hole trying to figure out when I first featured them and found this post from 2014, when E, my then boyfriend-now husband, got them for me for my birthday. I have officially been rocking these cuties for 4 YEARS.
Over the years, I have styled these overalls so many ways (check out a few looks here). They have held up so well, withstanding many washes and wears and they still look brand new! This exact pair is still in stock and now come in a variety of colors and washes (this is the Brady wash). I actually just splurged on this pair, and love the lighter wash and even slimmer fit.
One of my favorite ways to wear overalls is with a ruffley top. I feel like the ruffles add a feminine touch and dress them up a bit. I actually wore this exact combo to work on Valentine’s Day! This top is perfect for work or the weekend and is the prettiest shade of blush!
Have you given overalls a chance? If so I would love to see how you styled them! Drop your blog links below!
One of my New Years resolutions was to workout consistently. I started BBG, and while somedays it totally kicks my booty, I’m loving the changes I see taking place! I feel stronger and am feeling more toned and fit…and I’m only 4 weeks in! I can’t wait to see the results when the 12 week program ends!
One HUGE motivator for me is cute workout gear. I don’t know about you, but cute gear always helps me get up and get moving. While browsing for some new pieces to freshen up my workout wardrobe, I stumbled across these fun palm print leggings and had to give them a try! For $20, they are a steal and SO cute! I ended up snagging a cute cutout sports bra and a breezy open back tank to complete my look and spent UNDER $50!
I will definitely be ordering some more pieces! Check out what I have my eye on!
Valentine’s Day is next week! Are you keeping things low-key or having a fancy night out? E and I will probably celebrate somewhere in the middle…a low-key dinner date! For a laid-back night out, I like to keep things cute and simple. A sweater with fun detailing, a great pair of jeans and mules make for a perfect pulled together outfit that is still comfortable and easy to wear!
This sweater is SO flattering! I love the scalloped hem and raw edges, but the back is the real show stopper! The deep v adds a fun touch, but I love that it’s not low enough that your bra straps show! The best part about this cutie? It’s under $20! I am so excited to pair this one with cutoffs in the summer!
My favorite way to top off a simple outfit? A great piece of jewelry! I helped design this piece with taudrey and am obsessed! It’s one of my most worn pieces because I love that it’s dainty, but still makes a statement! Customize it to include your own sweet details, like an initial for you or your hunny or a stamped heart or swarovski crystal.
