Hey y’all! Can you believe it’s MARCH already?!? I seriously can’t. Time is passing by SO fast and I need it to sloowwwww down so I can catch up! I’m really excited about this month’s Monthly Edit, but before I dive into that, I just want to catch you up on a few things! I’m going to try to stay on a better blog posting schedule and post every Wednesday. The blog is something that I’ve been slacking on lately and I miss it… *please forgive me!* If I can, I will post two times a week, but I’m going to stick to a schedule of every Wednesday for now. I’m actively posting almost daily on my Instagram account (find me here), so that’s also a great way to keep up with trends and styles I’m crushing on, along with different life happenings on the reg!
The biggest news from this week is that the LikeToKnowIt App launched. If you shop online quite a bit, then this is for you! If you’re unfamiliar with LikeToKnowIt or have never heard me talk about it, it’s the power and logistics behind how I link all of my products I share so that it’s shoppable for you. For example, if you follow me on Instagram and ‘like’ one of my pictures, if you’re signed up for LikeToKnowIt, you will automatically receive an email with direct product links so that you can shop what I’m wearing or any products I feature. Well, NOW you can download the app and it makes it WAY easier for you to shop because anytime you ‘like’ or even screenshot enabled pictures on Instagram (or Snapchat), it will automatically appear (within about 20 seconds) in the app for you to shop! It’s a faster process and you can keep all of your LTK likes and screenshots housed in one place. Basically, it’s the blogger mecca for online shoppers. I do 99% of my shopping online, so this was a TOTAL game changer for me. Plus, it’s fun to browse to get outfit inspo and discover new products! I highly recommend downloading it if this sounds like something up your alley! It’s available in the App Store on your phone! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the app or LTK in general!
Now, the Monthly Edit for March! Let’s start with two of the trends that I’m completely smitten with right now: embroidered jeans and slide-on mules. These two trends have blown UP over the last month and retailers have released so many style choices for us! Both trends really took the spotlight last summer and fall, but it was mostly in bomber jackets and peep toe block heeled mules. They have evolved for spring with the focus of embroidery on jeans (90s trend lives on) and the closed toe slide-on mule. Shop some of my favorites below!
*My personal favorite: Blush Maddy Mule
Next, I’m loving ruffles and blush for Spring. Basically, this combo is the fashion world’s peanut butter and jelly. The Krissi cold-shoulder top from House of Fraser paired with the edgy embroidered jeans gives it a dressier and more romantic feel. It softens the entire look. Shop some of my faves below!
Up next, are statement earrings. Kate Spade and BaubleBar are slaying the game in accessories right now. The Kate Spade New York Taking Shapes Earring is bold with the dark enameled half moons, yet the pearls provide a dainty detail with each tier. Great mixture of edgy and sweet, much like the contrast of the embroidered jeans and ruffled top. There’s a method to the madness, y’all!
Canteen/circle bags are such a fun accessory. The shape is unexpected with a vintage feel and it’s a twist on the saddle bag or hobo style crossbody. The Harper Crossbody by Aimee Kestenberg comes in four colors: yellow, cognac, white, and black. (The yellow is A-FREAKIN-DORABLE.) I really like the the tassel zipper and the woven chain detail.
Lastly, I’m leaving you with a fabulous pair of mirrored round sunnies. I absolutely love the BP brand from Nordstrom because they always have the cutest stuff for DIRT CHEAP. Yeah, I said it. BUT surprisingly, the quality is always fantastic! These sunnies are only $12 and available in two colors. (These are the Black/Pink) I’ve linked it below, but you can shop all the sunnies here: BP.
