Happy Thursday! I hope you’re having a great week! When chasing around a toddler, or preparing for a busy day, a foolproof way of getting ready in a hurry, for me, is choosing a monochromatic look. There’s something so sleek about an all black ensemble!
For Spring and Summer, I love a crisp all white look! I am always stocking up on basic tees and tanks, and neutral shades of denim, because it really extends your wardrobe and mixes and matches so well!
A 10 day vacation means getting creative with your wardrobe! I chose neutral staples so I could easily swap and mix and match, creating countless outfits with only a few key pieces. I was sure to pack white, black, olive, and dark denim, as well as multiple pairs of denim cutoffs. My tops included everything from lightweight sweaters, to basic tees, button down shirts, tanks and body suits. I added these neutral espadrilles to my suitcase right before I left and I’m so glad I did, they are not only extremely comfy, but they match absolutely everything! Neutral sandals and belts were also great additions to accommodate our itinerary. A large tote and small handbag were just enough for any occasion!
A black bodysuit makes a chic pairing with cutoff shorts, a black belt and sandals for day, then swapped for black denim and heels or espadrilles for night! Neutral pairings give you so many possibilities!
Follow along for multiple ways I paired each look!
I love adding striped pieces to my wardrobe because they’re timeless, so I know I’ll wear them for years! This one is a recent H&M find for only $5! One of my favorite ways to pair them is with white denim. It’s the ultimate Spring staple, and the first basic I grab to pair with espadrilles for a crisp, Spring look! This option is so comfy and super affordable! I love that they offer petite and tall options, as well, because a trip to the tailor with an almost 2 year old isn’t on my bucket list! (Ha!)
When I get back home to colder temps, I will definitely be swapping out my favorite taupe ankle boots and a neutral lightweight sweater for a chic transitional look. The key to transitioning white from Winter to Spring is sticking to neutral basics, without any sort of stark contrast.
White denim can be tricky, as to some fabrics are so thin they can be sheer. I love that this fabric is on the heavier side, so I don’t have to worry!
Snatch this style while you can, it’s currently 40% off at the checkout, making it under $22! Have a wonderful week!
We made it to our happy place for the next 10 days! It’s amazing what a little sunshine and warm weather can do for your mind, body, and soul. Stripes have been heavy on my radar, as of late. A lightweight boyfriend button down is such a great Spring staple to pair with everything from cutoff shorts to white denim! I can’t get enough of them. These suede wedges are the perfect neutral addition to my warm weather wardrobe! They’re not only comfortable, but such a great height, as well. I’m so excited to share my favorite Spring styles with gorgeous backdrops! Stay tuned!
I couldn’t be more excited for Spring weather and more fresh veggies available. I like to switch up my salads frequently with a variety of proteins, veggies, healthy fats and omega-3s. I swap out everything from vegan chicken, to sunflower seeds, to beets to keep it from getting boring. Prepping veggies early in the week, make this simple, yet nutrient packed salad easy to throw together for lunch or dinner.
Start out with a base. I love fresh romaine, and I wash and cut it up early in the week so salads are easily accessible. I deseed veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes, and cut up red onion. Healthy fats like fresh avocado, walnuts and sunflower seeds keep it filling. I always add a couple protein options like garbanzo beans, tofu, tempeh or veggie chicken strips. My favorite vinaigrette is equal parts Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Organic Red Wine Vinegar, mixed with Pink Himalayan Salt, Fresh Ground Black Pepper, Granulated Garlic and Oregano.
This blue hue has been on repeat lately. This polish is really long-lasting, especially with how my fast my nails have been growing.
The countdown is on to meet our sweet baby boy! I’m gravitating towards basic tees, comfy lightweight cardigans, and my favorite maternity denim and ankle boots (even though they’re becoming a little more difficult to zip on and off! haha)
My favorite weekend breakfast, vegan sausage patties, gluten free cinnamon raisin toast and fresh fruit. When in need of a caffeine fix, this Black & White Cold Brew with Almond Milk is pretty yummy!
Coloring eggs for Easter weekend.
The Freshly Picked team sent Baby H the cutest moccs! I can’t wait to stick his little feet in them!
I don’t own a matching bathing suit. In my everyday wardrobe, I just don’t like matching in any sense. Instead, I choose to compliment. That’s why I’m loving the Peter Pilotto collection for Target. Everything can easily be mixed and matched, for a fun Spring/Summer vaca vibe. The cropped bikini tops are right on trend with the season’s playful length, and pair with almost everything in the collection. Have you snagged any pieces from the collection yet?
