Refreshing Old Shirts With New Pants

I’ve watched a lot of haul videos on YouTube. The thing I can’t wrap my brain around is how much money people can drop at one store in a day. (I’m sure, if I had the money I could find a way.) Typically, when I go shopping I will only buy two or three items I know I can work seamlessly into my current wardrobe. That way I know the items will be worn and I will get my money’s worth out of the new pieces as well as the old.

I’ve had this jean jacket for several years, and this little black tank top for even longer. While this look would be fine with a plain pair of skinny jeans, I recently picked up these sateen finished jeggings from American Eagle and now I have a whole new outfit!

Styling Oxblood Jeggings

I’ve been really into this oxblood color lately. It’s both chic and versatile! In today’s video I pulled inspiration from a few glamorous ladies on Pinterest to style a pair of oxblood jeggings from American Eagle.

The Midi Skirt

The midi is making a comeback! In length and name, the midi of the late 1960s was a direct retort to the mini, which had arrived in the U.S. from London in 1964. The silhouette was criticized by many who saw it as unflattering and a step backwards for women’s liberation.

But this skirt isn’t going anywhere — in fact, far from it!

The ladylike midi of spring collections takes a sophisticated approach in tweeds, stripes, and jewel-tones paired with tall boots and turtlenecks. Gone are the flowers and polka dots; the new midis are darker, weightier, with a look that is more feminist ‘70s than feminine ‘50s.

I found this jersey midi at Nordstrom Rack and loved that it was both casual and spunky. Instead of a turtle neck, I opted for a buttoned up blouse and a funky necklace.

I think the cut of this Kate Spade bag is the perfect nod to the decade in which this skirt first made its appearance.

Do you like the midi, or is a mini more your style?

Comfortable and Stylish Pieces To Wear This Spring

You’ve probably heard the expression that fashion is pain, and while that may hold true for some fashion items (ahem, like those gorgeous stilettos sitting in your closet), it doesn’t always have to be the case. You can look fashionable without compromising comfort. Here are just a few pieces to wear this spring that are both stylish and comfortable.

Dresses. Have you ever stopped to think how blessed we are as women to have the ability to slip on just one piece of clothing and instantly look chic? Dresses are easy to:

  • spice up with a trendy jacket or sweater,

  • make casual,

  • accessorize,

  • wear with nearly any type of shoe, and

  • if the dress is pretty enough, leave simple.

Our favorite comfortable dresses this spring include shirt dresses, maxi dresses, and wrap style dresses.

Birkenstocks. They’re back, and here to stay for 2015. And yes, they’re every bit as comfortable and fantastic as everyone touts. We of course love them worn casually with denim, but they’re especially cool paired with unexpected items, like trendy skirts or feminine dresses.

Our favorite Birkies for spring are in lighter neutral shades, like white or tan.

Sweatpants. Which is seemingly bizarre to even suggest. Everyone knows that sweatpants are comfortable, but as the ever stylish Kendall Jenner showed us earlier this spring, they can also, in fact, be stylish. We especially like them with heels and a great jacket.
