It’s no secret that I love all things colorful, especially when it comes to what I’m wearing. There’s something about wearing bright colors that just makes you feel cheery. I spotted this sheer Asos top in vibrant pink (and currently on sale) and I just had to have it for the new season. I love the fun movement of it and the feminine floral pattern. I paired it with an old Kendra Scott turquoise statement necklace and some distressed denim, topped off with my Steve Madden clog wedges (which have literally lasted me over 4 years – I love them!)

This is a perfect weekend look or casual work day look if your office allows jeans (thankfully, mine does!)

PS – Please excuse my puffy face/eyes in this photo. These were taken by my lovely blogger/bestie Olivia from Livvyland at 8:00 in the morning on a Sunday (meaning I had to wake up at 7 on a weekend – the horror! 😉  )

Happy weekend! You may have seen a sneak peek of this top last weekend on my instagram, but I had Cole snap my photos in it so I could share the whole look on the blog. I snagged the top on sale at Asos and I absolutely love it! It has a killer cool print that combines geometric shapes and floral prints and has a kaleidoscope of bright colors. Since last weekend was so warm and Cole and I had errands to run, I paired it with this white asymmetrical skort and booties that are super comfortable to walk in. I love a good crossbody bag for the weekends and this one by Fossil is the perfect size and shape. I complimented the bright coral color of the top with this statement necklace I received in my latest Rocksbox. If you haven’t heard about Rocksbox, listen up! It’s amazing. For just $19 a month, you get sent 3 pieces of jewelry based on your personal style preferences and you get to keep them all month then exchange for a new set. You can request your favorites online and buy pieces that you love at a discount. What’s even better, you can get your first month FREE with code “laurenxoxo5”. Don’t miss out!

I wear contacts most of the time, but I try to give myself a break every so often and especially on the weekends because I have itchy eyes (made even worse by my live-in allergen, Mowgli). I am also quite prone to loosing glasses, so thankfully this adorable pair from Pollete eyewear was under $50 with my prescription and shipping. You can find 100’s of amazing styles at prices that are unbeatable on their site, and you can simply input your prescription yourself. I highly recommend them if you – (a) loose things like me. ( b) don’t need prescription glasses but want a pair for the look. (c) want more than just one pair of eye glasses (because you can get like 5+ for the price of one designer pair).

Like the gorgeous turquoise beaded bracelet I’m wearing? There’s a beautiful story behind it. The bracelet is from Ekubo Ministries, a gospel-centered ministry working to spread the word of Jesus and create sustainability in villages in Uganda through teaching women a trade so they can support their families with income. This gorgeous bracelet was handmade by a woman in Uganda, and the proceeds from it go back to them. Check out their Etsy shop for more products to help support this amazing cause and stay tuned for a full post about this amazing ministry.

SPRING ESSENTIALS

SPRING-ESSENTIALS-VANDI-FAIR

Although the weather around the country doesn’t seem to be cooperating (thoughts and prayers to those in the Northeast still stuck ins now), spring has arrived. If you’re anything like me, that means a few new pieces are needed to make your wardrobe ready for the warmer days. In case you’re looking for inspiration, I’ve put together a list of my own personal must-haves for the season. Happy spring!

SOMETHING GINGHAM – Fall/Winter’s plaid craze has been replaced by the simpler, softer lines of gingham, and I’m loving it. This ruffled, gingham top just begs for a spring picnic in the park.

SHEER SKIRT OR DRESS – Sheer has been in for a few seasons, but for spring, try it as an overlay o a dress or skirt. I’m loving this cotton candy pink number from Asos – just long enough for a date, but sassy enough for a night out on the town.

SUNNIES WITH COLORED LENSES – Forget the reflective sunnies of last spring/summer, this season, snag a pair with colored lenses like these tortoise shell sunnies with pretty blue lenses.

EARRINGS THAT ‘GOT BACK – I’m loving the edginess that this unique earring trend brings, but I’m even more excited about versions that are a little more girly like these from Kendra Scott.

TASSEL NECKLACE – Okay, anything and everything with a tassel is a yes for spring, but the versatility that a tassel necklace like this one provides makes it a must-have on my list.

SOMETHING POWDER BLUE – Cinderella’s signature color is everywhere this season, and I’m certainly not complaining. While this color has already inundated my wardrobe in many ways, these gorgeous powder blue pumps are next on my list.

NUDE/ROSE NAIL POLISH – Nude is the go-to polish trend of the season (it looks gorg on every skin tone), but I’m especially loving the rose/nude versions.

BLUE DIAL WATCH – Whether turquoise or navy, watch dials have the blues this season. I especially love this one (which I already own) from Michael Kors. I got it at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year, but it’s made its way into the full line this year.

DRESS WITH CUT OUTS – Cut outs and illusion netting are a big trend in all dress types this season, I especially love when it’s down around the sleeves are collar area like this red number.

BUCKET BAG – The bucket bag is the perfect size for an everyday bag, and isn’t too heavy to carry. It’s a definite must on my list.

ONE-PIECE WONDER – Once reserved for school trips and church camps, the two-piece swimsuit is making its comeback and I personally love it! This one by Zinke is so adorable and all you’d need for a coverup is a pair of shorts!

CHUNKY HEELS – 70’s style chunky heels are the statement shoes of spring, and I especially love this black pair from Asos.

KITSCHY CROSSBODY – It’s no surprise that I’m a fan of the kitschy trend when it’s done tastefully, and this crossbody donut bag is simply delicious.

BOYFRIEND JEANS – Word on the street is that skinny jeans are out, and while I certainly won’t be tossing mine anytime soon, I’m going to be adding a few other denim options to the mix this season. If you haven’t already, snag a good pair of boyfriend jeans like this to try, or if you dare, try out the latest in denim trends: bell bottoms.
