Happy Monday!

Today's outfit inspiration is perfect for spring, as it incorporates nude shades and lady like feels, with the embellished top, a-line midi skirt, and structured bow detailed satchel. I think navy and nudes are a perfect combination, especially when transitioning from winter to spring, as I've mentioned in previous posts. The reason is that navy is a cool toned color, which is synonymous with winter, and of course it's dark. The nude or blush toned pinks help soften a look that features navy, making it more light in feel, perfect for spring. 

Midi skirts have made a huge comeback within the last year or so and I personally love them! It's refreshing to see some sort of lady like inspiration, since we've been seeing a lot more risqué pieces, such as see through bodysuits and dresses. However, I don't necessarily feel that they are flattering for everyone, particularly petites. The reason is that they're so long and can appear as though it's too much or overwhelming on a petite frame, which can give off a girl like feel instead of a lady like vibe. There are still options for those who like this lady like feel and are petite. One could opt for something along the lines of what I suggested for the apple shapes below. It gives off the same exact feel as the look I'm wearing, it's just shorter, exposing more of the leg. Even though more leg is showing, the a-line cut of the dress still reads lady like. Remember that a-line skirts or dresses flatter every body shape. I just created some alternative looks to give some other ideas as to how you can wear or style a similar look.

As always, I hope you felt inspired and try recreating the looks on yourselves and if you do, please share by tagging me wherever you post! 


With lots of love,
