Long time no see, errr.. talk!
How ya been?
Who’s ready for some sunshine in these here parts? I know I am. Even though my favorite color is black, and I typically wear a dark lip all year round.. but that’s beside the point.
My thought process for putting together this look was an “easy way to transition into spring” while still rocking some of your winter favs: tights, boots, dark lips, long sleeve dress… you get the idea.
I got this GORGEOUS high/low maxi from the Target sale rack right around Thanksgiving for SUPER cheap! I say it’s a little wintery because it’s long sleeves & has leather detailing on the neckline and at the end of the sleeves, making it perfectly okay to wear during the colder months. BUT the tan, gorgeous floral design makes it acceptable to rock all year round! Plus the flowy material + high/low detail!
BUT it is a pretty sheer material, which is obvi a little chilly for these cold January days, which is why I’ve thrown on a black jean jacket!
I love me a good black jean jacket that you can throw on time after time! I’ve had this one for close to 6 years, and it’s never done me wrong! A dark floral maxi would also look unbelievable with a leather jacket over it! DEAD.
I’ve added some opaque black tights for extra warmth + cuteness, ’cause, like I said, it’s still cold.
BUT if you were rocking a similar look, a little closer to springtime, I’d totally leave out the tights, throw on some booties, and go!
Speaking of boots, mine are from UrbanOG.com and they are ADORABLE! I am in love with the sock boot trend! Unfortunately, mine are a little too big to walk comfortably in for me (they were a gift!), so I’m thinking of getting rid of’ em, if you’re interested! (Only worn for this shoot). (There’s only a size 10 left online in the Taupe, so if you’re a size 6/7 let a girl know!)
Can we take a moment of silence for this purse though… hello, favorite Christmas present! This color block bag by Nine West from T.J. Maxx was quite the steal!! (Totally picked it out for Christmas lol) I love a good T.J. Maxx run and their purse game is usually pretty strong.
For anyone who’s wondering, I’m wearing the shade “Chocaholic” by Maybelline on my lips! My fav lipstick ever!!
