Today's Everyday Fashion: The Sweatshirt

Neon sweatshirt outfit
Rainbow sneakers outfit

Sweatshirts dressed up: it's been a trend for awhile, but not something I was eager to try. I normally wear today's sweatshirt over gym shorts on the way to and from the gym, but I decided branch out and give it a whirl. These neon sneakers were a perfect match, but the necklace and clutch felt a little silly. (Maybe it just takes a little getting used to! What are your tips for this trend?)

Also - a very happy and blessed Easter to those who are celebrating today! :-) if you're looking for some outfit inspiration, feel free to check out my Easter blog post from a couple weeks ago here.

Today's Everyday Fashion: Factory Shopping

Coral blazer outfit
Polka dot outfit

Today's polka dot shirt and shopping picks: I can't get enough of J.Crew Factory lately! Which is out of character because I've never really been a fan of shopping at the outlets. They are notoriously busy here in Orlando, and the quality is often low. I do appreciate stores like NM Last Call and Saks Off Fifth that sell brand names for less, and when it comes to J.Crew Factory - the quality may not be as good as the "real" thing, but the "real" thing isn't really within my budget so I love being able to get the look for less. Their adorable new arrivals online are hard to resist, and I placed an order during the 50% off promo going on this weekend. (Listed prices will go back up.) Check out my favorites below!

Today's Everyday Fashion: Old is New

Inspiration: LOFT

Floral skirt outfit
Blush shirt outfit

I normally consider this skirt to be a fall/winter item. But I was inspired by this old catalog photo to pair it with blush neutrals for spring. Even when florals have a dark base, they feel fun and flirty in the warmer weather when paired with nude accessories and a feminine top! 

Cardigan: LOFT, $20 (similar, similar, similar)
Top: J.Crew, $40
Skirt: Limited, $50
Shoes: Nine West c/o Macy's
