Happy Tuesday friends! Today I’m excited to talk to you about two things. The first is about a trend I’m especially loving this Spring season, the little white dress, and the second is a new way you can keep up with the latest trends from every season, right from your phone with the new Trove app.

Keeping up with fashion trends for all four seasons of the year (and let’s not forget about that extra resort season they throw in) is not always a simple task, which is kind of the reason why fashion blogging was born…real women visually sharing their interpretation of the season’s trends to help inspire those with a similar style. The thing is, there are SO many fashion bloggers out there these days, it’s gotten hard to keep up. Thankfully, the Trove app, which you can download on your iPhone or smart phone in the app store, is here to make navigating looks from your favorite fashion bloggers more simple than ever before.

Click through to get the full scoop on this outfit + find out more about the Trove app and why I’m all heart eyes for it.

As a teenager, I remember eagerly awaiting my Teen Vogue magazine in the mail every month so I could read all the latest in fashion (and then beg my mom to take me to the mall to shop!) College is where my eyes were open to fashion blogging via a blogger I stumbled upon. Her name was Blair and her blog was called Atlantic Pacific. I saved her website to my bookmarks at once and began waiting for her outfit posts daily as inspiration.

Flash forward to now, and after nearly 3 years of fashion blogging myself, I still seek inspiration from my monthly Vogue subscription and bloggers alike, but keeping up with all of the bloggers I love is especially hard these days. That’s why I was so excited when I learned about the Trove app. This app puts the organization into navigating looks from all of your favorite fashion bloggers. Whether you want to shop by city, or by style, there are so many ways you can browse outfits from bloggers all over the world, and save them so you can go back and look at them when you have one of those OMG-nothing-to-wear kind of moments.

In addition to the easily to navigate, organization of the mobile app, I also love the app’s personalization feature. Upon signing up, you’re asked to select two of your fave brands, two of your favorite retailers and the style that best describes you. From there, the app recommends bloggers to follow based on your personal style. What’s even better? Each week, the app curates categories current fashion trend, such as the little white dress trend which I’m styling today, featuring outfit ideas from dozens of bloggers so you can find your favorites. You can download the Trove app now in the app store on your iPhone or smart phone.

Now back to the look I’m styling today. It’s true that every gal needs a little black dress in her closet, but the little white dress has become a spring staple in recent seasons and I’m loving it. This laser cutout lace shift dress actually comes in both white and black, and I adore the easy fit of it + the intricate cutout detail. Because of the easy fit, it can easily be worn casually with flats, but the lace detail also makes it appropriate enough for lunch on Sunday. It’s also a perfect option for a bride on her bridal shower. For sizing references, the dress fits true to size and I’m wearing a size XS.

To add a little extra pizzaz to the white dress (which would be gorgeous on its own, by the way), I popped this amazing embroidered denim moto jacket that’s the perfect spring statement piece. I’m in love with the light wash and the floral embroidery + pearl studs that make it perfect pats edgy and feminine. What I also love about this jacket is that it will transition perfectly into fall when it gets chillier again.

To finish off the look, I opted for neutral staples, with my new go-to Sam Edelman mules (another Spring must-have) and my GiGi New York satchel.

Stay tuned for more spring outfit ideas here on the blog!
