Spring Style Q+A

I do an Instagram Story Q+A every week, and this week I decided to make it all about spring style. You submitted SO many amazing questions and I picked 15 to answer below! Spring Style Q+A Spring Style Advice What should I wear to a spring or summer wedding? This silky slip dress comes in multiple colors and is so elegant. The great thing about it is you could rewear it again and again to dinner with friends, or out running errands with a chunky knit sweater or white button down! I also LOVE this Zimmermann dress. It’s something that you could wear with flats after the wedding, or even brown boots and a camel coat in the fall! You can never go wrong with a sleek LBD, a navy racerback dress, or a fun pop of color like this or this (and no I don’t think it’s a faux pas to wear red to a wedding!) !function(d,s,id){ var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https'; if(!d.getElementById(id)) { e = d.createElement(s); e.id = id; e.src = p + '://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js'; d.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') { window.__stp.init(); } }(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script'); Best shoes to wear with casual dresses? Hermes Oran sandals are timeless – I’ve had mine for years (these are a beyond epic dupe.) I also love these Sam Edelman simple sandals (so comfy to walk in), and these Stuart Weitzman sandals. These are chic lace up sandals. What is the best bra to wear with a bodysuit? I wear these nippies 24/7 now. I prefer them to a bra. Best spring lightweight jackets? You can never go wrong with a green utility jacket. I also love a white linen or cotton blazer – I have this Veronica Beard one and throw it on constantly. This is a great affordable version! And how cute is this chunky knit cardigan? As seen on me here! What is your go-to denim for spring? I’ve been switching up my denim for lighter, more relaxed fitting styles and really love this pair of blue Mother denim jeans (size up if you’re in between sizes) and these creamy white Ann Taylor jeans (size down if you’re in between sizes – their jeans always run big for me!) Best summer shorts that aren’t too short or too long? I love these AGOLDE denim shorts! And these Zimmermann shorts are so classy. What should I wear for my engagement shoot? Congrats! I linked what I wore here in mine! It really depends on your personal style, your location, and what your partner is comfortable wearing. You don’t have to wear white! I feel like you can’t go wrong with a flattering midi dress. A few that I’d recommend are; this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one and this one! What should brides wear to their bridal shower? An ethereal white dress would look gorgeous! A few that have caught my eye; this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one. What should brides wear to their rehearsal dinner? I bought a custom dress from Monique Lhullier at their Madison Avenue store, but it is really dependent on how casual or formal your wedding is! Take into account the setting, time of year, budget, and then find a beautiful white dress that will fit within those parameters. I’d suggest making a few bridal appointments and trying on a more casual wedding dress if your wedding is formal. If your wedding is casual, I like something like this, this or this. This is a fun one too. If your wedding is more formal, and you want to order something online versus picking it out in store, I love this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one. !function(d,s,id){ var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https'; if(!d.getElementById(id)) { e = d.createElement(s); e.id = id; e.src = p + '://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js'; d.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') { window.__stp.init(); } }(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script'); What should I wear to my graduation? I would wear a sweet floral dress like this, this, this, this or this! Fun dresses to wear on a beach vacation? Oh so many great ones…loving this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one and this one! !function(d,s,id){ var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https'; if(!d.getElementById(id)) { e = d.createElement(s); e.id = id; e.src = p + '://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js'; d.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') { window.__stp.init(); } }(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script'); Best swimsuits? Bond Eye makes the best swimsuits that are one size fits all and super stretchy. Like, hi, so obsessed with this one!!! Also love this L*Space bikini. What are your favorite spring nail colors? OPI Funny Bunny, Essie Marshmallow, Dazzle Dry Touch of Love. What would your must have minimalist wardrobe items be for spring? Cream jeans, blue jeans, the perfect white T, a few bodysuits, a silky midi skirt, a straw tote, a LBD, a LWD, white sneakers and brown sandals. Meeting my bf’s parents for the first time, any outfit recs? So exciting! Depending on the weather, I would do a sweet dress like this or this, or a cashmere v neck sweater paired with a midi skirt!

Spring Set

Ahhhh spring – I see you! The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and the air is buzzing with excitement for the new season! I always get really energized during this time of year. As we transition into a new season, I’m inspired to clean out my closet and update it with beautiful, light pieces that I can wear well into summer. Nordstrom Designer Collections Nordstrom is always the first place I go when it comes to shopping. They have everything from affordable basics to elevated designer pieces. My wardrobe is in a really good place right now in terms of basics. I’ve spent years building it out so that everything fits right, feels right and lasts! I always like to treat myself to a few special designer pieces each season, and found some really dreamy pieces in Nordstrom’s Designer Collections section! A few designers that always stand out to me are Zimmermann, Max Mara, Khaite, Johanna Ortiz, Aquazzura, and Isabel Marant. Zimmermann blouse Zimmermann has been one of my favorite brands forever, and I end up keeping their pieces year after year. When I saw this white silk blouse online, I knew I had to have it! There are still a few sizes left, but hurry because it will sell out soon! For reference I always wear a size 1 in their clothing (it fits like a size small or 2 despite what the sizing chart says!) A few other Zimmermann pieces I’m loving are these shorts, this dress and this top. Max Mara silk skirt A silk midi skirt is one of my most worn items throughout the year. I love wearing it with a bodysuit, crisp white button down, chunky knit sweater, or turtleneck. I paired this gorgeous silk Max Mara skirt with my white blouse. The skirt really exudes soft minimalism which is a huge trend for this upcoming season! Spring Wishlist A few other goodies I have my eye on are this Johanna Ortiz white linen embroidered dress which will be perfect for warm spring/summer days. I also love this knit Khaite bodysuit, this elegant cashmere collared sweater, this classic Max Mara taupe coat, these white linen pants, these cool distressed jeans, and these Aquazzura heels – SWOON! Zimmermann blouse (also love this one and this one)Max Mara skirt (also love this one and this one)Stuart Weitzman heels (similar)

Classic Everyday Pieces

I often get asked about what my wardrobe essentials are.  They are things like a great pair of white skinny jeans, a pair of light wash jeans, the perfect fitting white T, a white button down, and a chambray shirt… They are pieces that can easily be mixed and matched to create an endless amount of classic outfits. Classic Everyday PiecesFree AssemblyThe Free Assembly collection at Walmart Fashion legit has all of the classic everyday pieces you want and need, plus they’re all so reasonably priced!  From that perfect fitting white T (seriously this one is the best – it’s a creamy white and the cut is SO good), to this chic cream cardigan with tortoise buttons, and this crisp white button down – the collection is full of effortless, classic pieces.  Plus I love that the brand is committed to sustainability. Here are the stand out pieces from my most recent order… The Perfect T-ShirtI ordered this T-shirt in both the creamy white and grey – and LOVE both.  It’s loose, but not overly boxy (I took my normal size) and drapes beautifully.  The best part is, it’s $12 and comes in several other neutral colors. Lightweight Spring JacketThis soft creamy white canvas jacket is stunning in person and will be my go-to lightweight jacket to throw over sundresses and tanks in the spring.  It’s true to size, and the tortoise buttons really elevate the overall look.  I can see myself wearing it around town or even to a casual dinner with sneakers or sandals. Cream CardiganI’ve been looking for the perfect creamy knit cardigan for a while, and this one really wow’d me.  It’s only $28.  My normal size was ideal for this style, and I can see myself wearing it over a simple slip dress, a silky tank, or alone with jeans. White Button DownYou can never have too many white button downs in your closet, and this one will be a staple year round.  It’s not too sheer so you don’t need to wear anything underneath, isn’t overly long so it can be worn tucked out, and has a slimmer fit so it’s really flattering on!  I have a feeling this will sell out in the white color quickly. So definitely snap up your size while you can! Shop more of my favorite classic pieces from the Free Assembly collection at Walmart Fashion below – including this great chunky knit crewneck sweater, these white denim shorts, these light wash straight leg jeans, and this simple long sleeve t which is great for throwing on before or after a workout.

Packing for Palm Beach

Packing for Palm Beach It’s currently snowing like crazyyyy as I write this post. Dreaming of warm weather, a pina colada and dipping my toes in the sand haha! I’m heading to Palm Beach in a few days and have been ordering a few things for the trip. Here’s what I’ve got my eye on… These new Dior aviators…swoon! They make the most flattering sunglasses. This personalized iphone case is the one I always use, but I’d love to get the beige with pink letters! I’ve been wanting this Loewe bag for a while, but never pulled the trigger. I think I need it before it sells out again… This Hunza G bathing suit sells out SO quickly because it’s the comfiest and most flattering. Both of these summer sandals are calling my name – the pearl detail is too good! How beautiful is this camel knit dress? And I couldn’t resist ordering this pretty white crop top! Shop more of my spring must haves below!
