Dress and Blazer: Urban Outfitters. Bag: H&M. Heels: Charlotte Russe.

Hi everyone! Today I wore a floral dress, which you may have seen before in my post “Think Spring“. I paired it with a cropped green corduroy blazer that I got years ago and wish I wore more often–I love it! I added a coral/nude bag and a matching hair bow, which picked up the subtle, orange hue in the dress. Around my waist I wore a lavender scarf, tied in a bow, and layered a silver belt over it. I recently saw this on Pinterest and thought it was quite ingenius. To finish I paired standard black pumps with a streak of silver–one of my all-time favorites (and most worn). Although there are many colors and a lot going on in this look, I think it works because every shade is picked up in the dress! (That’s one of the reasons I love floral print so much).

Oh and by the way, my little furry friend is named Finnigan. He kept trying to sabotage my shoot, so I thought, why not just incorporate him into it?

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,
Laura

Jacket: Macy’s. Top and Bag: H&M. Pants and Jewelry: Forever 21. Wedges: DSW.

Hooray for spring trends! Graphic stripes, checks, and diamonds were all over the runways–and my favorite bloggers!–and when I saw these awesome striped pants a few weeks ago I snatched them up right away. Although this graphic pattern makes the biggest statement with other black and white pieces, I couldn’t resist pairing it with a bright neon orange top. I can’t help it–I love color! Especially on days like today, which was warm and sunny for the first time in weeks. More spring looks soon!

Top: Mandee. Sweater: Express. Vest, Skirt and Jewelry: Forever 21. Booties: Macy’s. Bag: Urban Outfitters.

While perusing through my closet trying to come up with a new and exciting outfit to blog, it hit me that I hadn’t yet styled an outfit with one of my all-time favorite combinations–leopard print and red. The iconic print adds a dose of glamour to any outfit, and paired with a color as saturated and bold as red it looks stunning. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to break out the booties until next fall, but the weather has been disappointingly rainy and cold since I got home. The upside of this is I’m able to wear boots, tights and fur at the end of May! Hope you like.

As you may be able to tell, I’m having a moment with patterned pants. They’re trendier than their brethren–patterned tops, while still incredibly easy to style. My foolproof matching technique is simple: pick a color or 2 from the pants, and 1 or 2 neutrals as well to complete the look. You’ll be sure to achieve a nice balance of colors while letting the pattern speak for itself. For this particular outfit, I highlighted the icy shades of blue and pink to create a perfect winter-into-spring look. I have 2 or 3 more pairs of patterned pants to style and post so bear with me…

Coming up are more trendy pieces, including stripes, florals (what’s new?) and neon.
