It’s not hard to tell that my sassy side emerged when styling this ensemble. The leopard blazer has quickly become one of my favorites for work and play, but can we talk about these heels?! I nearly died when I saw these strappy beauties at Target for under $30. I’ve seen several pairs that never seem to be within my price range, but these had exactly what I was looking for – high end look, low end price tag. Not to mention, these heels were exactly what this outfit needed to kick it up a notch 😉

All I seem to gravitate towards lately are printed pants. They can be dressed up throughout the work week with a blouse and heels, but are trendy enough to wear with sneakers and a jean jacket on the weekend. H&M and T.J.Maxx have the cutest pairs this season at affordable prices – these H&M pants were only $14.95! Check out a few of my favorites this season linked above.

A patterned t-shirt dress is perfect for Spring. No matter the occasion, a t-shirt dress is always appropriate. Dress it down with flats or sneakers, or dress it up with heels, a statement necklace, and a bright clutch or wristlet. Thanks so much to Shiraleah for this beautiful Olivia Wristlet Wallet. The bright pop of yellow brings out the slight traces of yellow in my dress, love it! It is the perfect addition to my Spring and Summer outfits, and I can’t wait to style it all season. The best part? It comes in multiple colors, including gorgeous pastels. So on trend!

A classic white button-down is definitely a staple in my wardrobe. It looks chic styled with jeans and keds for a casual weekend look, or paired with a pencil skirt and heels for the office. You can’t go wrong with such a versatile piece of clothing. I’ve listed a few of my favorite options above.
How adorable are these Keds from the Taylor Swift collection? I absolutely love them, and I know that I’ll be wearing them multiple times this Spring/Summer. Keds are quickly becoming my favorite sneaker, they are comfortable, classic, and cute – triple threat.

Starting off the week with a casual cool look that is both stylish and practical. The weather has been all over the place lately, but this outfit felt perfect during the day and once it cooled down, the cardigan added just the right amount of warmth.
The Fossil bag shown in this look has been one of my favorites for years, but I have to say I am loving their new Sydney Satchel, it’s gorgeous! I find that Fossil has such great quality leather handbags without over-the-top prices. Can’t wait to see the upcoming collections!

Looking for the perfect outfit for exploring the city in the warmer months to come? Try styling a black drop-waist dress and glitter kicks for a casual look with a playful flare. Black dresses are always chic. Style it with your heels for work and quickly swap them for your Keds before running a few errands or meeting friends in the city!

At my work place, we can only wear jeans on casual Friday, so naturally I found another way to incorporate denim. Denim button-ups are so easy to transition from winter to summer. It was still pretty chilly when I chose this look, but I’ll definitely be styling my denim shirt with shorts and skirts in the months to come. I’ve linked a few denim options above that I’m currently loving…

When the weather is gloomy, it’s hard to feel motivated throughout the week. That’s where the power of brights comes in! I find that throwing on a bright blouse, jacket, or accessory, can completely turn your day around. Hot pink and orange automatically make me think of Spring and Summer, and let’s face it, we all love those few months out of the year. Sunshine, patios, picnics, barbecues, and pool time — need I say more? Fortunately, Spring is just around the corner, but until then I’ll have to settle for bright layers!
Starting off the week with a laid-back look that makes a statement. I love that these leggings aren’t your traditional leopard print. The black and gold leopard give this effortless look a little extra edge. However, if you are looking for a more feminine way to style these, try pairing them with a skirt and heels for a flirty and fun look!

I’m all about neutrals, but I can’t resist a colorful blouse that you can style multiple ways. I chose to pair this blouse with a navy skirt, rather than black, for something a little different. Adding multiple colored accessories brings out the various colors in the blouse without being over-the-top or detracting from the look. Sometimes you just need a little color to brighten up your day 😉
