What I Wore: Prints & Matching Accessories

spring fashion 2021

What do you do when you can't get enough of a fashion piece? You wear it again and again, and when possible get creative on how you style it! In fact, a few weeks ago I shared a post on layering dresses, and last week I shared this very dress HERE. And without intending to share more layering inspiration, I'm back once again. Perhaps it's because I know any day the oppressive heat will return to South Florida, leaving all traces of layering behind. 

So layer on and let's begin with the new spring dress c/o Love Kyla, layered with the soft sweater c/o XCVI. The organizer purse was purchased during Caite Clothing's Christmas sale. And this hat you see on repeat is from Amazon. Everything else is closet-shopped my friends...

Style Takeaway

This week's style takeaway is a simple application of matching belts to wrist candy, and in this case the necklace as well. Somehow it brought it all together. Also, throw in a pop of color with the purse or the shoes! Oh, and don't be afraid to use an eyeglass chain, they are here for everyone. ;)

What's Up On Social Media

Do you grow weary of wondering what's going to be for dinner or shopping for what's going to be for dinner? Last week I began to share about Blue Ribbon Foods, a farm-to-table, stock-your-freezer, customizable food service delivered to your door...or freezer. And yes, they'll provide you with a freezer to house all those goodies and ensure the food. Oh,, the goodness - you can taste the freshness in every bite. Hop over HERE to request info to see if this a good fit for you and your family. I feel a blog post coming here soon!

Also, I shared my latest love in skincare on the gram as well HERE. From the creator to the impacting products, I'm beyond impressed. I'll be sharing that on the blog soon as well. 

My desire to learn more about health and share what I learn continues. If you aren't already following me on Instagram, you can find me HERE

What I Wore: A Spring Dress To Impress

 

caite and kyla clothing
How do you feel about dresses? Dresses were not my thing once upon a time because I thought they were too limited on how I could wear them. I had so much to learn! Since moving to Florida I began to wear them to keep cool, etc. BUT, my appreciation grew, when I realized the style potential each dress has.  Last week I shared examples on how to layer tops HERE. This week it's all about a new spring design, sent to me by Caite & Kyla Clothing. You're going to love all the design features contained in this one piece!

What I Wore: Layering Dresses For More Looks


spring layering
Last week was all about the Pantone colors for spring: Ultimate Grey & Illuminating. This week we get to play with style creations through layering. It means more options, more ways to wear, and more bang for your buck.  Today'ss featured dress is another Caite & Kyla addition from the fall (spring styles are on their way!). Of course, we can layer our dresses with outer pieces, but why not make more looks by layering tanks, tees, sweaters, sweatshirts? Of course, this isn't a new concept by any means. However, I hope to inspire you with more possibilities! 

Also, this is a fun way to recreate a dress for Easter! Ok, let's get to it.

What I Wore: Illuminating and Ultimate Grey


Pantone 2021
Admittedly today's post is inspired by the promptings of Instagram friends and their challenges. It's all about the Pantone 2021 colors for spring - Ultimate Grey and Illuminating. Though I don't fixate on the latest trends, I think they are helpful in using otherwise neglected pieces in your closet.  Or maybe you're ready for a refresh and want some of the latest colors! In this case, I had a couple of neglected shirts and a few accessories to pull off this trend.

What I Wore: From Sidewalk to Sand in Jambu

 

spring shoes
Hello, beauties! Are you ready for spring? Of course, the fashion industry has been ready with its 2021 spring line since the spring of 2020. Once a line is released the design process for the next year begins! Sounds like a risky gamble at times, but I bet that's part of the adventure. And it's an adventure for me to see what those familiar brands add and change. Last week I shared a design upgrade by Jambu with the "Erin Too", but today's post is a newly designed, water-ready sandal c/o Jambu. 

*Jambu sent me the sandals for review. As always, all opinions are my own. ;)

What I Wore: Jambu Pull-ons In Pink


Pull On Sneakers
Hello! What is your go-to shoe for spring? I hadn't thought too much into it before writing this post, but more and more I find myself reaching for pull-on sneakers. They are convenient, stylish, and wonderfully comfortable. Rainy days aside, they are perfect for pairing with just about any easy-going, casual look.

Now, if you've been around the blog a minute, you might have seen my first pair of Erin shoes by Jambu & Co. Well, those popular styles are back, along with a new variation, the Erin Too. Today I'm pleased to share these adorable spring and summer shoes featuring two casual looks.  *Adorable sneaks were sent to me for review. As always, all opinions are my own.

Layering a button-up with a tank is such an easy-going look to pull together. From there, grab a pair of jeans or even better legging pants with a pull-up waist. Why not sport all the slip-on-pull-on-pull-up comfort that you can? 

Shoe Highlights

Erin Too -c/o Jambu

The Erin Too shoes feature a sporty bungee chord across the sides, a skate-inspired look, and knit uppers. The relaxed foam insole feels amazing from the first time you walk out the door. Those insoles, a flexible body and adventure-worthy traction put these sneakers on my top shoe for spring list!  

Look Two: Chambray, Better For Play

I switched out my plaid button-up for a chambray snap-up. Do you sense a theme going on here? Aside from the trees. I am a mom of boys and if you look closely you will see one of them hiding in the banyan roots. Anyway, chambray tops or jean jackets make fashionable completer pieces for fall or spring because they look cute tied around your waist. Once I attempted to climb these trees with the boys, I was happy to shed my outer layer!  

Style Takeaway

Convenience and comfort no longer mean drab and boring. One or two quality pairs of casual shoes with stylish details and your favorite colors, can not only take good care of your feet and legs, but they can also bring you countless looks that elevate confidence. 

I believe Jambu has a selection for all tastes and highly recommend perusing their homepage. If you find something you love, I have a discount code for 20% off your entire purchase!

Let's take care of our feet, but let's look cute while we do!

What I Wore: Love Knows No Limits


Hello and welcome to another fashion share and link up! I've thoroughly enjoyed taking advantage of February being the month of love with these posts. From Valentine outfits to highlights on freedom and human trafficking awareness, I think I could settle into every month having an emphasis on love. Well, I suppose each month already is. We don't need a holiday to share love, receive and learn more about love. Just the same, it's fun to emphasize now and then! So, today I'm closing out the month of February with another tee from Sweet Soul Clothing Boutique.

What I Wore: The Color of Freedom & Crowned Free

Hello, beauties! The month with a focus on love continues. We can't let the sentiment slip by just because Valentine's Day already passed, right? We need it now more than ever! In an effort to cyber celebrate I  shared my Valentine outfits past and present last week, this week focuses on the color of freedom and Crowned Free, and next week will cover limitless love. Are you ready to dive into this fabulous color of freedom and some fabulous accessories?

What I Wore: Valentine's Past & Present


Are you in or out this Valentine's Day? Traditionally we host a dinner for friends but since Valentine's falls on a Sunday, we will be otherwise engaged. On Sundays, we work with a small group of college and twenty-somethings so I'm sure there will be a few festivities. However, that means casual it will be! For this reason, I thought it would be fun to share a few dressier looks from past Valentine's. If you're undecided about what to wear, in or out, I hope to inspire you with these closet-shopped looks!

What I Wore: Outdoor Adventures & Chacos

Once again my sister and I collaborated together for another week of homeschool adventures, which means outings with more focus on functional fashion than dressing to impress. This will be our third meetup where we plan lessons and adventures for the kids. Since we use the same unit studies, designed with schooling all ages in mind, this is easily pulled off. The lessons are already laid out for us and each child works on their individual level. What a blessing this curriculum is.

What I Wore: Earth Tones & Link UP

 

Last week I alternated my two favorite pairs of joggers with comfy tees, with the exception of Sunday. It was that kind of week.  In full disclosure, the cords I'm featuring today are no less comfy. They have an elastic waist and a soft material that tricks my brain into thinking the body is still sporting joggers. Ha! I'll share one of those outfits at the end of this post for kicks, as well as discount codes for money saving goodness.

Anyway, before I move into outfit details, let me say that I continue to build a community locally as well as virtually to share in on a 21 day health adventure. The brains behind this journey is Dr. Livingood. Interested in learning more? Check out his website and book HERE. I will not begin the 21 days until February 15, so there's still time. You can also visit last week's post to read more on my why.

What I Wore: Sunny, Casual Vibes & Link Up

 

Are you feeling sunny these days? After realizing that things in our country may only get crazier, I decided to turn off mainstream media altogether. Though I still have a few sources I trust and enjoy, I couldn't stomach the obvious push from the mainstream to divide our nation from several angles. In addition, I made the decision to reeducate myself on matters of health. I forgot the "why" behind much of my health decisions. When you lose your "why", you lose motivation altogether. Guilty! 

So, the motivation is there. Now what? Where do I start? Well, my mom ordered me a book she enjoyed by Dr. Livingood (yes, that's his real name - talk about a call on your life).  This book is a 21-day guide to experience real health. Want to join me in reading? He is offering the book for the costs of shipping on his website

From there I'm building a community of virtual and local friends with the same goals. Some are beginners and some are a wealth of knowledge, but all are wonderful accountability, encouragement, and support.

Combine the renewed motivation with renewed purpose and a plan and I'm starting to feel sunny!

What I Wore: Florida Winter & Link Up

 

Cardigan / / Sweater / / Cord Pants / / Divina Boots c/o Enjoiya
Hello and welcome by. Today I'm featuring three simple outfits that I wore over the last week! Though January is one of the better months to shop for clothes, I'm only purchasing something if I LOVE it. Therefore, you will continue to see many items on repeat. In turn, I hope to inspire you to make much of your existing closet. Of course, you will also see items from my favorite small businesses pop up as well.

Corduroy, Wine Colored Boots & Link Up

Happy New Year my friends! Sometimes I feel like 2020 was the longest year ever and then other times I feel like it didn't exist! November and December days flew by filled with preparations, traditions, and travel. Thankfully I was able to squeeze in a few lazy days as well, drinking up fiction novels like the library was running out of books. I hope you had a favorable end of the year, no matter your circumstances! 

Also, did you receive a few goodies from Christmas, and if so, did you get any fashion pieces? I picked up an item or two on sale and was gifted some earrings, and a set of bracelets that I'll share soon. In the meantime, I'm sharing a couple of closet-shopped looks that I wore over break.

Wine Colored Boots

Once I had received the Divina boots by Enjoiya I made a point to see how many ways I could style them. I own a pair of wine colored, velvet heels but nothing in a casual option. Ironically, here I am styling them with a dress! I'm sure I don't have to tell you that they're far more comfortable than the heels! 

The dress and jacket are from Caite & Kyla, but their pieces won't be back on the site until next week! I eagerly await their upcoming spring line.
