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.

Is everyone like me and missing their extra hour of sleep? It really caught me off guard and took me a few minutes on Sunday morning to figure out that it was actually daylight savings – not just me being extremely sleepy. I love the whole ‘fall back’ aspect of daylight savings; the ‘spring forward’ not so much.
This outfit is a mesh of this. It’s almost complete spring weather (high 70s) with very cold mornings. I love this outfit because it’s really cute and comfortable at the same time. It keeps me warm enough to not be too hot or too cold as the weather changes during the day.
I’m thinking of doing a post on how to grow long and healthy hair. I have so many tips (and family secrets) on how to grow healthy hair super fast. Let me know if you are interested in that.
I love leaving my hair down. It’s naturally straight so it saves me a ton of time when I just leave it down. Since I have super long hair now, I sort of feel like a princess when I leave my hair down.
I’ve been seeing pom tops everywhere! I think it will be a major trend this spring and summer. This black and white off shoulder top with pom detail is a lot more understated than the usual pom top. It’s so comfy and lowkey cute at the same time. I love it and can’t wait to pair it with a pair of high waist shorts.
I had been on the hunt for a truly great pair of over the knee boots (which are reasonably priced) that don’t slouch down. I found that boots with ties in the back like these ones are the best at keeping the boots up. I’ve tried many pairs of over the knee boots and walked around the store with them to only find myself pulling them up every couple of feet. I have relatively skinny legs and I wanted to find a pair that wouldn’t cause me to worry about anything to fall down.
Theses boots are absolutely perfect! They’re reasonably priced and the quality is amazing. I wear them almost every single day and I’ll wear them with spring dresses and summer dresses on cool summer nights.

There’s two more weeks till it’s officially spring. But it looks like no one’s informed my older sister or these trees. We both love this orchard and the meadows too. There is an odd juxtaposition in this week’s outfit though. My outfit is very appropriate for school and very similar to my usual winter to spring transition outfits. I love mixing my warmer clothes and slowly bringing in a lighter style through hairstyles and makeup choices.
This wool blend grey top is deceptively heavy. It photographs as a very light and free material, but in reality … it’s a very thick and warm material. My sister bought this in the winter of 2009. Yes, it is eight years old now! We weren’t joking when we said we rarely throw away clothes.
I pair it with a long sleeve shirt during the really cold days, but just the top alone was more than warm enough for me on this day. It’s a nice warm material – sort of like a cute blanket. I really do feel all wrapped up in this top!
I’ve had these black booties on repeat now. I’m trying to get as much use out of them as possible before it’s too warm to wear them out. I know I’ll try to incorporate them into some night time summer outfits when it’s cool enough to pair them with a light cotton dress. Even though I have a special place in my heart for sandals, booties are admittedly my favorite style of shoes.
