FLIRTY FLORALS AND A FEW OF MY CURRENT CLOSET FAVES









Jeans - Piper Street
Shoes - Steve Madden
Purse - Kate Spade (old)
Necklace - similar
Bracelets - Gorjana via Rocksbox and J Crew Factory
Earrings - Kendra Scott via Rocksbox
Rings - Baublebar (similar) and Kate Spade (similar)
Watch - Marc Jacobs


There's nothing like spring to bring out my love of florals! I know it's so cliche but I just can't help it!  I will be wearing florals all season long and I'm not even sorry. =)  My latest floral love is the new "Bianca" top from Piper Street (See ALL New Arrivals are HERE!!) We fell in love with this top when we found it and knew our customers would too!  It's just about sold out in the shop but never fear...we're working to restock it soon! The colors are so pretty and pair so well with a few of my favorites in my closet.  

Speaking of favorites...this cardigan from Anthropologie is adorbs and so easy to wear! I loved the gorgeous lavender color so much...and just last week it went on sale! Even better, right?! And fringe is another one of my favorite things right now...these shoes are so fun to wear! These white jeans are another of my absolute favorite springtime things to wear...they go with everything and look so fresh!   And every single person who has purchased these jeans has agreed, they make your tush look good!! There's something magical about them! And then there's my hot coral purse.  This purse has a very special place in my heart because it's the very first designer purse I ever owned. Right after my husband graduated from Dental School (aka: as soon as we were no longer poor dental students) we were able to get away for a few days together and hubby told me to pick out a new purse when we came across a Kate Spade store at the mall.  You better believe it took me a hot second to run in and grab this beauty! I still love it just as much today and probably even more so because it was my gift for surviving those four long years! (PS--Did you hear about the Kate Spade Surprise Sale going on right now??  So many great deals on so many cute things!!  Hmmm....maybe it's time for an "I survived the school year" present? THIS and THIS have caught my eye!!! Oh, and THIS too!)

Lastly I can't get enough of delicate gold tone jewelry right now! This Gorjana cuff is stunning, so much so that I think I'll be purchasing it from my Rocksbox set this month! That's the glory of Rocksbox...I love being able to try jewelry out before committing to buying it!  (To get your first month of Rocksbox free on me use code: foundinmyclosetxoxo at checkout!!) I still love statement pieces but delicates have my heart right now!

What are your current closet faves? Crushing on florals like me? I'd love to hear!

STYLE IT: THE PLAIN WHITE TEE

I'm excited to get back to a series I started long ago...my "Style-It" series is back!  I'll take an item and style it multiple ways to help you get the most out of your closet!  This week it's the plain white tee.  We all have one...or two...or eight.  What, just me? (wink-wink!!)

A white tee is definitely a staple piece everyone should have in their wardrobe but how often do you actually wear it? And do you wear it the same way every time? I've found myself falling into a rut when wearing my favorite white tees so I decided it was time to get a little creative and come up with some new ways to style them!  Here's six looks you could put together using a lot of things you probably already have in your own closet!!

As a side note, I just purchase the white Micay Tee from Anthropologie used in all of these sets and really love it! It is slightly sheer (as most white tees are unfortunately) so I'll need to layer it but the shape and fit are awesome! For reference I took it in size X-small.




#1
The Sporty Tee
Pair your white tee with rolled up patterned denim, slip-on shoes and a cross-body bag for a sporty look!

White Tee Set 2

Tee/ Jeans / Shoes / Bag / Necklace / Bracelet / Earrings / Ring 


#2
The Monochromatic Tee
Use pops of color in your accessories and shoes to make an all-white look stand out!

Tee / Skirt / Bag / Shoes / Necklace / Bracelet / Earrings / Ring

The Boho Tee
Pair your tee with a flowy-kimono and boho-inspired accessories to give a 70's inspired outfit.

THREE SUMMER TRENDS TO TRY











Top - Chicwish
Purse - J Crew
Sandals - Nordstrom (now on sale for under $60!!!)
Necklace - Forever 21 (similar)
Bracelets - Nordstrom, J Crew Factory, Baublebar & Anthropologie (old)
Rings - Baublebar (similar), Kate Spade (similar) & J Crew Factory
Watch - Marc Jacobs
Sunglasses - Prada


As the weather warms up I've been breaking out my favorite summer trends!  Long gone are the days of snow boots and heavy coats...bring on the sandals and shorts!!  So far this season I'm finding myself gravitating toward three trends in particular...I've got crisp white tops, cognac sandals and neon accessories on constant rotation with no end in sight! All three are simple and easy to add into any wardrobe!

1. Crisp White Tops
A light and airy white blouse is a necessity in your summer wardrobe! I just love the easy-breezy feel of a white blouse! It can be paired with pants, shorts or skirts...such a versatile piece! I love this short sleeve top option from Chicwish...the embroidery detail makes it unique and the fabric flows so well.  It's a summer classic! 

2. Cognac Sandals
For as long as I can remember cognac sandals have been one of my favorite summer must-haves!  They literally go with everything and there's so many different style options you can choose from. This season my go-to cognac sandal styles are stacked heeled and wedges...both super comfortable and user friendly.  I just wore my favorite cognac wedge sandals on my son's field trip last week...they're that comfy! I highly recommend these Jessica Simpson cognac wedge sandals from Nordstrom...they run true to size and are currently on sale for under $60...score!

3. Neon Accessories
While neon may seem like an intimidating color family to incorporate into your wardrobe, I dare you to try it! I double-dare you!!  Start small with a tassel necklace or bracelet and work you way up to something like this super cute cross-body bag. Adding in such a bold color in small doses can not only amp up your entire look but neon has a tendency to make your skin look a little more tan too...added bonus!  Give it a try and you'll thank me later, I promise. =)

Have you jumped on the bandwagon for these trends yet? What are your favorite summer trends?

BOHO VIBES










Kimono - Nordstrom (under $40!!!)
Top - Anthropologie (similar)
Hat - Nordstrom
Sandals - Dolce Vita (only $35!!!)
Purse - Nordstrom
Necklace - Nordstrom
Bracelets - Piper Street (old) 
Earrings - Francescas (similar)
Rings - Wrenn Jewelry, Baublebar (similar) and J Crew Factory


All those April showers brought us gorgeous May flowers and spring is in full bloom! Light, airy kimonos are one of my favorite things to wear as the weather warms up! I'm always on the lookout for a bold, beautiful print when searching for the perfect kimono and this one certainly caught my eye! The best part? It's from the BP section at Nordstrom and is only $38!! It has an oversized fit...I took it in the S/M. Pairing a printed kimono with a simple white tee and distressed jeans brings a great boho vibe that I love this season! 

Speaking of distressed jeans, I have tried numerous distressed "boyfriend" style jeans over the last few months but none of them were keepers until I tried these from J Crew Factory! They have a slight boyfriend feel without drowning me...winning! I felt they ran true to size and took them in size 25. And then there's the sandals...let me just admit now that I wore these sandals about five days out of seven the first week I had them...they are amazing! And you can grab them at the link above for under $35 in three different colors!  You need these.  You'll thank me later.

Are you feeling the boho vibe this season?

BOW BEAUTY








Skirt - Piper Street
Shoes - Dolce Vita (from Nordstrom Rack) 
Clutch - ASOS
Necklace - Stella & Dot (old)
Bracelet - J Crew Factory (and other is sold out)
Rings - Baublebar and Nordstrom



I love adding pieces to my closet that are classic yet unique.  When I shop I challenge myself to find items that stand out in a crowd.  The new "Brinkley" skirt from Piper Street definitely garners attention! It's absolutely gorgeous and is such a flattering style and length! I first paired it with my new "Keme Dotted Tee" from Anthropologie and somehow loved the skirt even more...coral and blue just might be my new favorite combo!! This would be the PERFECT look to wear on Mother's Day! If you're in need of a bow beauty in your closet it's your lucky day...it's the last day to get all skirts and dresses for 20% off at Piper Street with code: LOVEMOM

Happy Thursday, friends!!
