Today's Everyday Fashion: The New Denim Shape

 
DSC03561.jpg
 

At first glance today’s look is just a plain white top and jeans, but upon closer inspection it’s a primer on current trends. Straw bags are all the rage, and white heels are everywhere. The V at the toe and block heel makes this pair especially trendy, and they are also super comfy! As for denim, one newish shape on the scene are crop flares. I like that they show off your shoes and the little flare is a fun “kick.” Right now really anything goes for denim though - there’s hardly a pair that is not in style. What denim shape are you rocking these days? And white shoes and straw accessories: do you vote yay or nay?

Today's Everyday Fashion: Blazer Showdown

 

Two blazers - but there can only be one winner. 😜

One is lightweight, the prettiest pale pink. The other is sweater material, in a bold navy stripe. This could never be a fair showdown, because each blazer is so different! But for this Florida girl, being picky about jackets/blazers is a must because we just don’t need them very much in this warm climate. If you could only have one - which blazer would you pick??

Top: C. Wonder, old (similar, similar)

Today's Everyday Fashion: Pretty New Things

 
 

As promised, here’s a snapshot of what I ordered from LOFT recently! First up, a pretty, versatile floral top (above) with just a touch of volume in the shoulder. I love that it could be styled boho or preppy, and there are so many color pairing options - blue denim, mustard, gray, khaki, or ivory, to name a few. And below, check out two blazers I ordered. Everything is so cute, I’m having a tough time deciding!

Forgive my excitement but I’m just so happy that spring is around the corner! I’m jumping the gun a bit of course, but we also get warm weather much earlier here in Florida. I ordered a couple tropical items from Forever 21, including these two tops. I think I’m leaning towards #1 above, but would love to hear which one you like better, too. I placed an order at LOFT that I’ll post soon - can’t wait to share it!
