Last weekend we took a family stroll down South Congress (one of my favorite spots in Austin) for my daughter's birthday. I mentioned on Instagram how glorious the weather was and that we planned to spend most of the day outdoors. I wanted my chosen outfit to match my mood; bright, airy and full of spring colors.
JcPenney Denim Jacket (option here and here + a coupon code) // Love Shopping Miami Maxi Skirt c/o // Target Leopard Sandals (option here and here) // Forever 21 Tote // Sira & Mara Necklace c/o (sold out. similar here) // Nashelle Ring c/o // Ettika Bracelet c/o // Michael Kors Watch c/o The Jeweler's Wife // Forever 21 Mirror Glasses (optional colors)
Even though there isn't anything earth shattering about the style I put together, it's one of those looks that just works time and time again. It's casual, comfortable and sings a springtime melody.
Sometimes I forget that it's okay to throw on a white tee, solid skirt and denim jacket to keep things simple. By adding a few accessories that compliment the colors in your outfit, you can really finish off a look and make things come together in an effortless fashion.
I have to mention this pleated maxi skirt that Love Shopping Miami sent to me. I predict this little number will get lots of love attention over the next few months. The best thing about it besides it's length and color? It is fully lined. It is a pet peeve of mine when the lining in maxi dresses or skirts stop at the knees and the rest of the bottom is see through. This one got triple points for being the opposite. It is on sale now, but there is only one size left and the size I am wearing. It's the perfect piece for both spring and summer and I highly recommend it. I opted not to wear the belt this go around, but plan to wear a tank tucked in next time.
In other news, I am heading back to L.A. tomorrow for LuckyFABB. To be honest, I haven't planned a single outfit and didn't really go shopping for the two day conference. I just can't get it together, but know that procrastination works in my favor and it will all come together in the end. I can't wait to see my two roomies Jenn and Stesha and hug so many ladies that I feel like I have known for years because of blogging. Let me know if you plan on attending so we can meet up! I haven't been before, but hear it's an amazing time and a great networking experience. Plus, Nicole Richie is going to be one of the speakers. I cannot wait to see and hear what advice she has for all of us.
After the conference I am staying with one of my best friends in the entire world and plan to decompress with a little girl time and a late night chat session. Make sure to follow me on Instagram if you are interested. I will do my best to not be "that" girl and post ten times a day, but I can't make any promises.
