Happy Monday my sweet friends!
Since I've been taking the time to spend with loved ones, I haven't had the chance to take outfit photos, but thought it would be a great idea to share some red outfits from the archives in hopes of inspiring you in wearing the trending color. Though purple is the color of year, red is still going strong as a trending color this spring and summer. It's a color that looks great on everyone, as it comes in various shades and hues that are sure to flatter any skin tone, cool, warm or in between. I actually touched upon that exact topic in this blog post back when I was pregnant and rediscovering my love for the color. I'm sure you'll find the tips I've shared in the post helpful!

Happy Friday my lovely friends!
As you all know, red has been one of the hottest color trends since the start of fall and it's still going strong! It's a color that I've reignited my passion for, as a result, and have been seeking out new pieces, since I didn't have much in my wardrobe. I actually styled an outfit almost identical to this one (see here) during the winter, but in that outfit, I styled these houndstooth pants with an oversized red balloon sleeve sweater.

Happy Wednesday my lovely friends!
The weather is for sure all over the place with snow happening one day and it hitting the upper 50s another, we're in early spring. This time of year can have all of us desperate for wearing our head-to-toe spring-y outfits; bring on all of the pastels and florals. Considering the weather, some days it may not be as easy to step out in those pieces without adding in some coziness in an oversized sweater or extra layer and that's actually okay. I think an oversized sweater or leather jacket can really add an interesting element to an early spring outfit adding in more dimension.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!
How was everyone's Easter weekend? We went to church and then for brunch afterwards. I typically make Easter brunch myself, but I needed a break from cooking for a holiday, since I did it for nearly all the ones during the holiday season and it's so much harder to do when you have a little one! I didn't wear this exact outfit, though I did wear the blouse. It may look familiar, if you remember the post I did a few months back, My Recent Purchases and Wish-List. The blouse is, unfortunately, sold out in the blush color, but there's one size left in the black. Perhaps you'd be able to find it stores, if you're interested. It's absolutely beautiful and looks great paired with denim, trousers, and suede, as I've done today.

Does it feel weird seeing me in sneakers? It feels weird seeing myself in them on the blog, lol. These are actually my first legit pair that aren't workout sneakers. Prior to having Aviah, I didn't own any to just wear out and about because I'd always just wear my heels, flats, or sandals during the warmer months. Oh how times have changed! I actually just noticed that I've worn flats all week on the blog, which I believe is the first...ever! They're just much more practical for me these days, though I'd never turn my back on my beloved heels!

Happy Wednesday friends!
So, I love this top! Lol. I wore it here on the blog last week (see here) and I couldn't resist wearing it again, yet in a very different way. Last week, I styled it with a green leather jacket. Today I'm styling it with a different shade of green in the form of a purse. Last Monday, some of you mentioned that you're not too fond of the color green and I totally get it. It wasn't my fave up until recently.

Happy Tuesday my beautiful friends!
I'm back with yet another trend report for the season and this one I'm actually quite surprised I'm loving, polka dots! I've never really been one to love or gravitate towards this print. I guess it was because I never found pieces that featured it in a more modern or contemporary design, until now. The designs I've been seeing lately are more of the moment or do have a vintage feel but in a more practical way that isn't as retro. I also love the color variations, ranging from the classic black and white to peach or baby blue that are perfect for the spring season.

I've decided to restyle this gorgeous blouse I first wore on the blog towards the end of fall (see here). In that post, I added rich, saturated shades of burgundy to enhance the seasonal vibe. This time around, I've added pops of green, which I've already mentioned is the color I'm loving most this spring season in this post. The lighter color brightens the overall look and changes the mood entirely. This is what I love most about printed pieces that feature various colors, it allows for you to pull out any of the colors already found in the top, which can help to change the tone and overall feel of your outfit. The ditsy florals have a more playful mood, typical of the '70s, as opposed to some other trending florals, such as roses, that tend to lend themselves to a more passionate and romantic vibe.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!
I hope you're all having a great week so far! By the time you're reading this, it's most likely snowing quite a lot here in Connecticut...again! Apparently spring didn't get the memo that she was to arrive yesterday. March always seems to lend itself to being one of those fickle months that's just too unpredictable anyway. I, of course, am not wearing this outfit as we speak, it's what I wore yesterday. These are the loafers I was telling you about in Monday's post that I've been obsessed with ever since I got them about week or so ago.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!
As for today's outfit, it features a color that I'm absolutely loving for spring this year, green. To be honest, I never was one to embrace the color. It never really spoke to me, until the past couple of years, but more so these past few weeks. I had a few pieces here and there in my wardrobe, but was never all that eager to style them as frequently as my other vibrant colors. I think it all started with this BLANKNYC jacket I scored a couple of years ago during the NSale. It, unfortunately, doesn't seem to be available, as I scoured the web in hopes of finding it to no avail. However, I was able to hunt down an incredibly similar style by Levi's.
