Bright colored neutrals are great for the warmer weather and something you can carry over from year to year with just adding colored accessories to change the look and keep it on trend. This is a work friendly outfit (business casual) as well as just a casual every day outfit that you really don’t have to think about. I am loving wearing more plain outfits and then adding a piece of statement jewelry or shoe. In this case, its the tassel earrings to dress it up a bit.

When I do wardrobe Edits, something I tell my clients if they don’t have a huge budget is to focus on neutrals and staples as opposed to trendy pieces of clothing, kind of staying safe. You can get much more use out of these items, and throw in a trendy top/bottom/jewelry, stretching what you have much further. You cannot go wrong with white jeans/pants for a sophisticated look for spring and summer.

I know I say our lives are crazy and never die down, and I seem to be waiting for that calm moment, and it never comes. I don’t want to wish away any time, but we are always going and if we are not going, then we want to be home and spending quality time together… and still nothing gets done. This is everything from laundry to housework to blogwork. Life right now is all about taking in all of Elston’s firsts and wearing energy out of Jackson… in a nutshell. Every night we go on family walks, Georgia pup and all, but it’s really to walk our child. He has more energy than all of us combined and our walks are mostly constant refereeing so that he actually stays on the sidewalk or out of people’s garages. Whew, I’m exhausted… and excited to have finished  blog post. Thanks for reading!

A jumpsuit or romper is one of the easiest items to add to your spring wardrobe and gives you something to grab and throw on when you don’t want to think too much about your outfit. I would pair with a wedge to give yourself length, and a denim jacket as the outer layer. My recommendation is to find out that is comfortable and cinches the waist, giving you a little flow at the top.

top c/o: Make Me Chic | jeans | fringe heels c/o: Make Me Chic | tassel earrings c/o: Lisi Lerch | clutch

These are a few of the major trends going on this spring that you might want to try, and I have found them at great prices! You will see the off-the-shoulder top everywhere, and this one is a little bit dressier. It’s an oxford dress shirt material and I love how it slits up the sides for room and flow to move around. Next is the fringe heel, this one is a great price, especially since it’s such a trend, you don’t want to spend a ton on it. Lastly is the tassel earring… if you aren’t familiar with Lisi Lerch, this is a brand you need to be. Think Lilly Pulitzer of the jewelry world. I am obsessed with this whole brand and site, and everyone needs a pair of these earrings… there are SO many colors to choose from!
