Hi friends! Welcome back! You know that feeling you get when you hate how your hair and/or outfit came out so you're in a bad mood all day because of it? I kind of feel the same way about blog writing. I feel so much less inspired to write a full blog post about an outfit when I'm not in love with the look I put together. Today is definitely not one of those days. This is one of my favorite outfits in a while and I'm really excited about it so I am just going to get right into it.

If you follow any Instagram influencers, I am sure you have seen the infamous high-rise wide leg Zara jeans that have been breaking the Internet. Unfortunately for us shorter girls, as gorgeous as they are, these jeans are entirely too long. This sent me on a crazed search for a similar pair that worked for my height (5'3"). I eventually came across these bad boys and decided to order a pair solely based on the fact that they were such a great price. I honestly didn't expect much from them so when I tried them on and they fit exactly the way I wanted, I was beyond thrilled. The hunt was finally over. Ladies, if you're under 5'5" and looking for a nice pair of straight/wide leg super high-rise denim, this is the pair for you. I was planning on making these the focus of the outfit by styling it with a simple fitted white tee and a crossbody purse, but as I was getting dressed my dream blazer arrived. I have been eyeing this blazer for literally over a year and kept putting it off because it was a little on the pricier end of what I would normally pay for a blazer. I figured I would be able to find something similar for a better price but every time I purchased a black blazer, it just wasn't giving me what I wanted. I wanted a heavyweight, vintage, boxy, super oversized fit. Nothing seemed to compare to this beauty so I caved and it was 100% the right decision. I will never have to purchase another black blazer for as long as I live. Anyway, I decided to throw this on over the white tee and the look just instantly came together. I added a red lip for a little extra sass and that was that! It was love at first sight. All outfit links are listed below. Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.

Hi friends! Welcome back! Okay guys this is going to be another super short one because we’re still in that obnoxious winter to spring transition period. I have so many styling ideas but none that make sense based on the actual temperature right now. I find myself resorting to what I’m calling my “spring transition uniform.” If you’re also finding yourself in a fashion rut because of this annoying transitional period here's my quick and foolproof styling advice. Just throw on a chic oversized trench coat/blazer and a baseball cap. Literally, that's it. Whether it's jeans and a tee or a sweatshirt and leggings. Trust me on this and thank me later. I’m not sure when baseball caps became the must-have accessory but I am here for it. I hope this trend sticks around so I can continue to do my hair less. Expect to see plenty more looks just like this one from me throughout the spring. All outfit links are listed below! Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo

Hi friends! Welcome back! Well, it's March and I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling like I'm suffering from a bit of PTSD. We all know what happened last March. However, I am also feeling hopeful that we are on the verge of some positive changes in the world. The most exciting part of this month is the fact that in just a couple of weeks it will be spring! I am craving warmer weather and longer days and knowing that both are right around the corner makes me feel elated. I am beyond ready to ditch my winter coats and start creating some spring looks. Actually, I guess I can't say I’m ready to start because I already did. This week's post is my first look of the upcoming spring season and I am very excited about this one!

I have been terrified of attempting a denim on denim look because if it isn't done right it can look very, very tacky. It's something I have always wanted to try though because when it is done right, it can be so so stylish. Throughout the years, and with a lot of fashion inspo saves, I think I have finally cracked the code. First, the most obvious factor (to me at least) is that the shades of denim should be identical or at least nearly identical. Second, the textures of denim should also be nearly identical. If you're wearing a thick 100% cotton pair of jeans, then your denim jacket/shirt should be similar in thickness. The final trick to nail your Canadian tuxedo (and this is 100% my opinion) is to avoid super dark shades of denim. While you're at it, I would avoid super thin denim as well. So basically, stick to thick denims that are of a lighter wash. Anything else risks the possibility of looking a little shoddy. Again, these are just observations that I have made through my own research, but everyone's style is different so by all means wear what you want. You might love your darker, thinner denim or you might hate the Canadian tuxedo look all together. Both of those opinions are perfectly valid. All outfit details are listed below. Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.
