Spring Lookbook 2017 : How to Pair Classics with fun Trends to Create an Envy-worthy Wardrobe (Pt. 1)

"Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It's a gift to the world and every being in it. Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you've got." ~ Steven Pressfield

Hey hey sweetie pies! The Spring season is well underway and the world is filled with pollen and climbing temps - well at least that's the case here in Houston. As always, I have a lookbook here for your inspiration and shopping pleasure. For this season's lookbook, I wanted to focus on incorporating seasonal trends with timeless classics. I also wanted to showcase how you can incorporate timeless trends such as pastels in Spring and pair with current trends such as metallic. As always, I have linked the items or similar below each look. Since I love you guys (and lookbooks) so much, I am doing a 2 part series for this season! That's right, I will be doing a second part that will be coming to the blog in the next week or so. :) But for the meantime, enjoy!

For this first look, you may already have a bag in a nice neutral color. I decided to use that as the base for this outfit. This in turn created a soft feminine vibe - great for a wedding or brunch even.

Who doesn't own a pair of aviators these days? Instead of doing a casual or rocker look, I opted for this jumpsuit that has a nice sweetheart hemline and a fun cutout at the torso. Plus it cinches in at the waist to flatter your figure. Throw on some fun jewelry and lace up booties and you are set!

Turkish Delight Multi-Row Necklace
This look is for all of my girly girls out there. From the accessories to the delicacy of this lace blouse, you are definitely giving IT Girl vibes! Plus this color combo is perfect for Spring!

Parisian Belle Statement Ring
I am a huge fan of this look. Off the shoulder is everywhere this Spring season! Jump on the trend bandwagon in this gorgeous all white romper! This look is perfect to wear on vacation while these gorgeous jewels catch the sunlight. It pairs perfectly with a tan as well! Use neutral colored shoes and bag to let your other accessories do the talking. :)

Bun Cuff
Embroidery is so much fun and helps give a worldly look! White and powder blue are a timeless pair together but opt to throw in another color such as coral for an unexpected twist! The jewelry pairs perfect with the clothes as well as the shoes!

Hair accessories - SOLD OUT

This look is great for those who like to add a feminine flair every once in a while but is all about her edgy pieces. Having a pair of black jeans and simple heels are a staple in any wardrobe. To create a little juxtaposition, opt for a sheer floral blouse with a floral embroidered bag. Keep jewelry to a minimum and if you want to take it up a notch, opt for this delicate handpiece. I guarantee you it will be a conversation starter.

**I received samples courtesy of Derive Colognes to review. Even though these samples were given for my boyfriend David and I to review, all opinions are our own.**
As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
