Hey y’all! I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day! We kept it low key this year…it was our 14th Valentine’s together and we don’t quite wine and dine like we used to for such occasions! I cooked cauliflower fried rice for me (recipe coming next week), and a honey BBQ chicken with rice and broccoli for the hubs (thank the Lord for crock pots.) We had quality family time with our boobear, tucked him in to bed, then watched The Bachelor and sipped champagne. YOLO!!! What a wild night! LOL- It was definitely my little slice of heaven and I’m not trying to call anyone out BUT…my hubby really enjoys The Bachelor, too! Shhhh- it’s our little secret!
So, lately here in South Carolina, the weather has hardly dipped below 60 degrees. I’m already channeling spring and thinking about how my wardrobe can transition from “winter”ish weather to warm spring and summer temps. Behold, the Monthly Edit for February. (Side note: You can shop these items by clicking the pictures below my descriptions!)
I absolutely love this shirtdress from Topshop.. I’m loving the flirty vibes with the off-the-shoulder trend, yet it is practical with the long sleeves (and great for the office with a cardigan or blazer.) The sky blue pinstripe gives it a classic, preppy vibe and I love the button details down the front. Topshop nailed elevating a traditional shirtdress with that FUN collar! Swoon! Can you tell I’m obsessed? This dress is only $90, which in my opinion, makes it a steal for a piece you can wear all spring and even into cooler summer nights.
Next, is this amazing Sam Edelman Sierra Straw Tote. I absolutely LOVE this bag. The pom fringe border is so summery and festive and I love the structured shape. The skinny scarf is actually detachable and definitely adds another element of chic to a rather traditional straw tote. The circle shaped handles are so on-trend and the shape/size is perfect to carry all of your everyday essentials. This bag is under $200, and well worth the investment. Treat yo’self!
I was searching for a minimal summer heel and stumbled upon these amazing triple strap block heel sandals from Old Navy. They are $37 and so versatile for spring and summer. You can wear with shorts, skinnies, skirts, and dresses. It doesn’t matter what style or color because these will literally go with EVERYTHING. They are available in four colors including, cognac (pictured), tan, black, and tan with a silver strap at the toes. All so cute and a STEAL! Right now, you can get 30% off with the code: ENJOY, which makes them ONLY $26! So, get them while they’re still in stock…I have a feeling these won’t be around for long!
Lastly, let’s talk about the accessories. I’ve hand-picked some really trendy, neutral pieces that are the cherry on top of this look. The Zarah Drops from Baublebar are a delicate touch, yet give you just enough sparkle near your face while still keeping it sleek and minimal.
I chose a triple strand choker that will highlight the unique neckline of this dress, while staying trendy with the 90s choker vibe. The choker trend is here to stay and because of that, I’ve noticed some really cool variations and styles lately. This style being no different: braids, jewels, and tassels, OH MY!
This beautiful Kate Spade Treasure Ring is on sale right now from $98 to just $61! It’s definitely a timeless statement piece and pairs well with the other accessories from this look.
I chose another Kate Spade item, the Luggage Metro Watch, to mirror the cognac color from the strappy heels. This is a piece that you could easily wear all year round.
I chose BP. Oversized Mirrored Sunnies from Nordstrom (available in three colors: black, tortoise shell, and nude) to finish this look. These neutral sunnies are dramatic with the oversized look, but practical in color. OH and did I mention they’re only $12?!?! AH!
This last piece is just a fun addition to your iPhone case collection. Calling all my fellow cat ladies! This Kate Spade Glitter Cat Phone Case mixes the best of both worlds. Cats and glitter. It really doesn’t get any better! It’s $45 and TOO CAAAAUTE!
