Hello! This is actually what I wore a few days ago on the first official day of spring. The weather was lovely and certainly was a good start to spring. Now if only it stays warm and sunny...
I chose to style an outfit around several new pieces in my wardrobe. I began my look with this babydoll acid wash denim dress. Recently, I ordered this dress from Forever 21 HERE for $22.80 and couldn't be any happier with my purchase. This is the ideal dress for spring; the babydoll fit, micro-mini length and acid wash print all have me swooning. Not to mention the fact that this dress is incredibly easy to style.
Next, I layered my new black fringe kimono over the dress. Joah Brown recently sent me this kimono courtesy of ShopLately. This is the "Black Fringe Kimono" in black and retails for $38 + shipping. You can find it HERE. I ordered a size medium. I've been wearing this kimono nonstop the past few days and am absolutely in love with it. It is just such an easy-going, free-spirited piece that I can't resist it.
However, the first few times I wore the kimono, the fringe kept getting caught on things and tangled. I think that the problem was caused because the fringe was like loops of fringe instead of single strands (if that makes sense.) To solve that problem, I simply cut the loops into two pieces of fringe so that they weren't attached as loops. Now I have no problems with the fringe getting tangled or caught in anything.
The warm weather also gave me a chance to debut my cute new jelly sandals. These are the JuJu "babe" sandals in white. Although they were on the more expensive side for me (about $40), I am really pleased with this purchase. They are just so darn cute! And how could I resist the retro vibe and adorable heel? I have a feeling that I will get a lot of wear out of these "babes" this spring.
Red lips, bold sunglasses, lace ankle socks and a leopard print crossbody bag completed my look. These lace ankle socks and bold sunglasses are also pieces that are new to my wardrobe.
ILoveSexy.Com recently sent me these socks to feature on my blog. These are the "Anklets with Lace" in black and retail for $7.45. I am very impressed with the quality of these socks and find the style of the socks beyond sweet. I love how they look with my jelly sandals and feel that this may be a popular sock-shoe combination for me this spring.
ZooShoo sent me these bold sunglasses courtesy of ShopLately. These are the "Oyster Club Shades" and they retail for $15 + shipping HERE. I love the glamorous statement that these shades make.
