Hey Girlies, 

Spring will officially arrive tomorrow! With that, there are some key pieces and colors that I think are perfect as we begin to transition over from winter, one of which is suede. It's a great piece to have and wear during spring because it will still keep you warm, since it's leather, yet the texture is lighter, softer and comfortable to move around in. Plus, it's a great option for a daytime to look, if you didn't want to wear a darker leather jacket. I personally prefer a suede jacket in a lighter color, such as pink or nude because they enhance the spring like feel. Plus, they blend easily with an array of colors! 

In this look, I'm wearing a blush toned faux suede jacket with a waterfall effect; a softer alternative to a motto style jacket. I paired it with a fairly neutral palette and a pop of pattern in my scarf, for some extra warmth and interest. Since I wanted to go for a softer, more daytime feel, I decided to wear a medium washed jean. You've heard me mention many times how light-medium washes gives off not only a spring/summer feel, but also a more daytime feel, because it's lighter. This may be something you want to keep in mind when creating a casual spring outfit, if you've ever questioned which of your rinses are best during this time of year. Since we are still transitioning, you can of course continue to wear your darker washes, so don't put them away just yet! 

I hope you found this post helpful and that it inspired you in recreating it! Below is an alternative option for my apple shapes as well as those who have longer legs and a shorter torso and wish to visually lengthen it. I am wearing a version that would be suitable for the pear, rectangular, and hourglass shapes


With lots of love,
