It’s the last days of spring and the weather is quickly warming up here in Southern California. We had temperatures in the high eighties and I’m going to have to pack away my sweaters soon. If I could spend all day in sweaters, I would. I just find them to be so comfortable and I wanted to show with this look that it’s possible to dress up a plain sweater.
I got this grey cashmere sweater during Black Friday and it was such a steal. I always had a dream of owning a cashmere sweater someday because you know – it seemed like such a grown up thing. I waited till Black Friday and I had bookmarked a few cashmere sweaters before hand to see which one would be the cheapest.
This sweater is unbelievably soft. So soft that I ended up buying a black button down cashmere cardigan from the same brand. I know for sure that I’ll be picking up the same sweater in a few other colors during the next Black Friday!
If I had to pick my favorite piece of jewelry that I bought for myself, it would be this blue necklace. I got this as an impulse buy nearly a decade ago. If I remember correctly, it was ridiculously cheap and I didn’t expect for it to hold together this long. I love everything about this necklace – the gold details, blue beads, and especially the silk at the back. I’ve searched for something similar to this for years, but sadly – it hasn’t happened. That doesn’t mean I’ve given up though.

Spring can’t come soon enough for me. If you couldn’t tell from my previous post, I absolutely adore spring. Summers for me are blistering hot days filled with heat waves and a general sense of discomfort. But spring … spring is magical. It’s when I can still wear some pieces from my winter wardrobe on some days and maxi dresses on other days. I just love all the skirts and dresses spring entails.
Also, I love the bright colors spring brings. I’m someone who tries to get away with a brighter color wheel during winter since we live in a warmer area year round. I adore shades of pink and soft blues for the spring time. There are some prints (floral or brightly patterned) that are my all time must haves for spring.
I’m a short girl (5’2″ to be exact) and I love a good heel. But there are days when I know I’ll be on my feet all day and there’s no way I would willingly wear a three inch heel on those days. I love wearing a cute pair of flats like these ones when I know I have a lot of errands to do. These shoes are so comfy and I love the rockstud details. These flats are a knockoff of a very famous brand and I paid a little over ten bucks for them (such a steal)!
This blouse is so versatile. I last wore it on Valentine’s Day and featured it in XOXO. I paired it with a printed pant for a more work appropriate outfit. The very soft pastel pink brings a softer effect to the entire look. I love pairing this top with different bottoms and especially with different pieces of jewelry. It’s become a staple in my outfit as a basic pieces.

There’s something edgy about wearing all black and sort of bicker chick-esque. Personally, it makes me feel like a more empowered girl. Some people have power suits and I have all black ensembles with a black bomber jacket.
It’s fun to break up the all black with this black and white striped V-neck shirt. It’s eye catching and wouldn’t be on its own. This top is also one of the most comfiest I have. I tend to dress it down (with sweatpants) or dress it up (tucked into skirts).
Obviously, you can tell these booties are well loved! They’re my most well worn pair and the scuff marks are a true testament to how often I wear them. They have the perfect chunky heel that it doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing heeled booties all day.
