my everyday style: spring shadows!

I've always wondered what it would feel like to have a mild winter with regular sunny days.  We just don't get that type of weather here in Michigan on the regular.  But for the past week or so we have had the most amazing mild winter days.  I am basically in weather heaven (aka what most of the nation calls "spring").  Leaving the house in just a sweater on a February day is usually unheard of. But lately it's the norm. And I have to say, I'm really digging it.  A lot of people in Michigan are die-hard winter fans, me... not so much.

If you still have a slice of winter (mild or no) left in your neck of the woods I highly suggest snagging this sweater.  It's so soft and lightweight, so it doesn't feel super wintry. It's fast become a new favorite... I wore it twice last weekend alone.  That is how I know a piece is going to work in my closet. When I never want to stop wearing it, it's a keeper.

my everyday style: the chambray blazer!

I fell head over heels for this chambray blazer a few years ago and since J.Crew keeps re-issuing it every spring, I don't think I am the only one who loves it so much! This year's version has ruffles (OMG!).  I get a ton of wear out of this blazer... it's perfect over tanks, tees, lightweight sweaters, etc, etc. and once the first sign of spring pops - this baby comes out of my closet. I'm probably sounding like a broken record at this point.... but if it is spring or fall, you will likely find me in a blazer.  It's the perfect transitional layering piece.

Can we talk about how sweet this bow sleeve top is?! Adorable!  Bow sleeves, bell sleeves... it's all about the fun sleeve this spring.  And let me tell you... I am buying into this trend 100%.  It's a great way to add a little personality to a look, while still being highly "wearable".  Have you tried this trend yet?
