Forever 21 Spring Haul

Spring has arrived and that means shorts and sandal weather is finally here! Today I am sharing a recent Forever 21 spring haul, filled with the cutest new arrivals. Pieces you can wear for lounging, as you stay home and do your part during this epidemic, and out and about later this season!

Outfit 1 – Knit Tank // Linen Striped Shorts

I have been shopping at Forever 21 for YEARS! It’s one of the first places I go when updating my wardrobe from season to season. I love that they carry the cutest, on trend pieces at prices that don’t break the bank, making it so easy to refresh your wardrobe from season to season.

When I made my seasonal visit to Forever21.com, I looked for pieces I could lounge around in now and wear out and about later this spring and summer. Because I’ve been spending all of my time at home, comfy shorts and knit tanks were the first pieces I added to my cart. I don’t know about you, but I want to feel comfortable, and yet still cute while working from home! Forever 21 has tons of options that fit this category. Items that work for lounging, but can easily be mixed and matched with the rest of your closet when quarantine ends.

These linen shorts are one of my favorite finds, so nice I bought them twice (or in two colors!). They are lightweight and so perfect for working from home. I’ve been wearing them with my favorite graphic tees and slippers, but plan on pairing them with cute knit tanks and espadrilles. This knit tank is a perfect contender. It’s comfy and has a flattering fit, and looks just as cute with loungewear joggers as it does with denim!

Outfit 2 – Maxi Dress

When it heats up, I love wearing dresses around the house! They are comfy and breezy, especially when it is hot! This option is stunning! The vibrant color combo is cheery and instantly brightened my mood when I put it on (don’t you love when that happens?). I can see myself pairing this with a denim jacket and wearing it in classroom when I finally get to go back to work!

Outfit 3 – Striped Knit Tank // Twill White Shorts

I have been wearing these twill shorts so much lately! They are NOT SEE THROUGH, which is hard to find in a great pair of white shorts! I love that they are pull on and high waisted, making them a comfy lounge contender. Clearly I’ve been loving the knit tanks, but this one was hard to pass by! I love the stripes and how lightweight it is. Despite being knit, it is so breezy and perfect for the temp changes ahead!

Outfit 4 – Sheer Top // Cami // Shorts

This gorgeous sheer top is not something I will be wearing around the house, but is a piece I look forward to wearing on a future date night. I fell for the ruffle sleeves and the sheer fabric (I paired it with this cami). It’s a flattering little number that makes me feel like a million bucks and is exactly what I want to wear when I can finally go on a dinner date with my boo!

The shorts I paired with it are another pair that work for working from home! They come in a ton of colors and are so soft and easy to move in. I like the sweet little belt, but would dress them up by swapping it out for a leather option.

Outfit 5 – Ribbed Tank // Striped Linen Shorts

Last but not least, this tank is another favorite find. I love the tighter fit, which gives it that bodysuit look without the inconvenience of a bodysuit. It has the cutest ruffle detailing on the bottom, which can easily be tucked in (as worn here), or left out, making it a versatile option. These shorts are the prettiest shade of coral and are so fun for spring and summer. I love shorts like this for days at the lake!

Spring Shoes with Nordstrom

The weather has been warming up, and I’ve been living for quick walks through the neighborhood (while practicing social distancing of course) and soaking up the sunshine in my backyard. Current events have given me SO much perspective.

With all the uncertainty in the world, I’ve taken to celebrating the positive. I’m enjoying the little things, like extra time to enjoy my coffee in the morning, mid-day walk breaks with my husband and pup and more time to read. I’ve also been living with the mantra that bright days ARE ahead. While we weather this storm together, remember that sunshine (both figuratively and literally) is headed our way, friends.

I’ve been appreciating the changes a new season brings more than ever before. This could be because I have way too much time on my hands to take it in. One silly little thing I LOVE about this time of year is going sock-less. Yes, I told you, totally silly, but something I usually take for granted. How glorious is it to finally be able to trade out stuffy boots and socks for bare feet and sandals?

I recently picked up some new spring shoes from Nordstrom that I’m so excited about. I’ve actually taken to wearing them around the house and for our short walk breaks through the neighborhood. Nordstrom is always the first place I look when shopping for a new season. They carry the brands I love, have new arrivals daily and free shipping and returns which makes ordering online so easy. I am also extremely impressed with their customer service and how they are handling recent events (read about their efforts here), by closing all physical stores, remaining open online and still providing an amazing customer service experience.

My favorite and most worn pair of sandals for spring and summer are my Tory Burch Miller sandals. I actually ended up snagging a new pair this year because mine were so worn! I’ve never found a more comfortable, practical flip flop that can be dressed up or down and goes with everything!

Current Loungewear Faves

Happy Friday, friends! This has been one weird week. School has officially been out since last week and I’ve spent the time figuring out how to balance working both jobs from home. Creating a schedule, setting aside time for breaks and creating a separate space for at home classroom work has been important. Another important factor? Feeling cute but comfy while working from home.

I think it’s super important to feel put together, but still feel comfortable. I’ve recently purchased some new loungewear pieces that are comfy enough for doing allllll the couch chillin, but could also be dressed up a bit for telecommuting or walks with the fam.

I’m sharing a few of my favorite styled looks below along with more loungewear faves. I will continue to update this post as I come across cute options!

I don’t know about you, but I am ready to ditch the long sleeves and jeans for shorts and tees. Sadly, the weather hasn’t received that memo yet. It’s absolutely necessary to layer up before heading out the door!

Luckily, I snagged some of the cutest affordable spring jacket options at Walmart for the new season. I actually look forward to layering up before leaving now!

From season to season, Walmart has been one of the first places I look for freshening up my wardrobe! They carry everything from staples to on trend pieces with prices that don’t break the bank! I love that I can score budget friendly options without sacrificing style!

This utility jacket is one of my favorite recent purchases. It’s under $30, comes in 4 color options and is an amazing piece to add to your spring wardrobe! It’s a great jacket to take from work to the weekend, layers up easily and is a great length! Is it crazy that I want all four colors now??
