BLACK PEPLUM JUMPSUIT

I love finding a truly unique piece, so when I spotted this black peplum jumpsuit, complete with a flared lace pant, I instantly fell in love. The fun and flattering peplum and v-neck top paired with the illusion lace flared pants was the perfect combination (and one I’d never seen before!)

Another thing I absolutely love about this peplum jumpsuit is the criss-cross, open back. The jumpsuit has an optional hook in the back to create the criss-cross, offering more  than just one look. Ohh and did I mention the jumpsuit comes in at just $54? It’s just dressy enough to wear as a unique option for a formal event or can be dressed down for a date night.

To style the jumpsuit, I opted for a pop of vivid turquoise with my new favorite tassel earrings by Lisi Lerch which I found at White Elephant Boutique. For another turquoise color pop, I added this amazing stone cuff by BaubleBar. I topped the look off with even more color in these fuchsia strappy sandals from heels.com. To tie both the bright hues together, I carried my Rebecca Minkoff Sophia Clutch.

RUFFLE OFF SHOULDER RED DRESS

If you can’t tell from my last two posts alone, I have a major obsession with ruffles and off shoulder pieces this spring, so when I spotted this ruffle off shoulder red dress that combined the two trends, I had to make it mine (the $17 price tag was pretty enticing too).

There is so much to love abut this fun and flirty little dress. I don’t even need to talk about how much I love the ruffle details and the off-shoulder silhouette, but I also love the lightweight, breezy feel of it (in other words, no need to worry about wearing spanks or sucking in when you wear it). The dress also comes in black and white hues, but I absolutely love the bright, poppy red.

To style the dress, I started by pairing it with this amazing mint beaded statement necklace by Baublebar. I absolutely love the look of the two vivid colors together! Then I added a little pattern play with these Sam Edelman pumps in my favorite animal print, leopard (similar on major sale here!) n

I completed the look with some of my favorite staple accessories like this fun fringe black clutch by Kelly Wynne and this Tory Burch watch.

This is such a fun look for a date nigh tor a night out on the town.

CHAMBRAY OFF SHOULDER DRESS

The off the shoulder obsession continues with today’s look featuring this chambray off shoulder dress I found for under $30! I love finding a good dress that can be thrown on for any occasion like this one (and especially when it’s at such an amazing price!)

Besides the off the shoulder look which you already know I love, there are so many other things I adore about this dress. First, the fluted, voluminous sleeves give the dress a little unexpected flare. Next, I love the white stripes that add a bit of a sporty edge to the dress. And last, anything in chambray is so great to have in your closet because you can pair it with practically anything, from sandals to heels.

To style the dress, I opted for some fun, fringe-y jewelry ala Baublebar with this neon orange and teal beaded tassel necklace and this amazing set of colorful beaded bracelets from the brand. I kept the remainder of the look neutral with these oh-so-comfy nude wedges by Nina Shoes and my new favorite chain crossbody bag by Kelly Wynne.

This is such a fun casual date night or weekend brunch look and is sure to be on repeat for me this spring.

BLACK RUFFLE TOP

shorts and heels outfitvandi fiar ruffle black top pink bow phone case mint beaded statement necklaceoversized ruffle hem top cut off denim shortsdallas fashion bloggeralso fuchsia strappy sandalsblack peplum oversized topbaublebar mint beaded necklace

As an ultra-girly girl, I have always embraced things like ruffles, bows and lace, so when I spotted this oversized black ruffle top, I couldn’t wait to style it. Ruffles are a big trend for spring, gracing everything from hems and sleeves of tops like this one, to skirts and dresses to add feminine flair. I especially loved this black top because of the sheer volume of it (it literally is a twirly top – it sways as you walk or move!) and the shiny, thick fabric. The top is sold as one size fits all because of the oversized nature of it. I’ve linked more ruffle tops at the bottom of this post.

To style the top, I wanted to dress it down for a fun weekend look with these cutoff distressed shorts. Distressed shorts are also trending this spring and summer season and I absolutely love this pair by Blank NYC that I found for under $100. They fit just perfectly and are the perfect not-too-short length. To add some fun pops of color, I started with this amazing beaded statement necklace in mint by Baublebar (under $40!) I love the layered look of the beaded necklace and the color is amazing. Then I added this gorgeous and oh-so-colorful bracelet stack by Baublebar to create a fun arm party. For one more color pop, I paired these fun fuchsia sandals by Aldo. With all the color my jewels and shoes provided, I stuck with neutrals for the remainder of the outfit in this gorgeous chain crossbody bag by Kelly Wynne.

COLD SHOULDER CORAL DRESS

Cold shoulder and off-the-shoulder dresses and tops are kind of my jam, so when I spotted this pretty little cold shoulder coral dress, I immediately scooped it up to wear on Easter Sunday. I loved it so much, in fact, that I simply had to share it here on Vandi Fair.

First lets talk about this adorable dress. I have never seen a halter dress with the cold shoulder look, so I was immediately drawn to it. I also love the structure of the dress – and since it is a little on the short size, it doesn’t huge your body, so it still feels appropriate for church but fun enough for a night out on the town. Lastly can we talk about this gorgeous color? It’s the perfect in between of coral and light pink.

As an Easter look, I wanted to continue the soft, pastel color palette, and this gorgeous crossbody bag by Kelly Wynne featuring a coral and mint snake print was the perfect accessory to tie the look together. I topped off the look with these nude sandals that have the most adorable fringe benefits (also they’re only $52!) I finished the look with some simple gold accessories like these Kendra Scott earrings and this Michael Kors watch.
