How cheesy is the title of this post? Oh well, I haven’t uploaded a style post in ages, so this title will do. I can’t believe how long it has been since my last post. I blame the blizzard and artic conditions that has plagued the East Coast. Well luckily, before another cold blast hit my area, I was able to take advantage of the semi seasonal temperatures and head outside with my camera. It was a nice change to ditch my bulky winter coat and wear one of my favorite spring outfit.
This spring look no further than Zara to find all the latest fashion trends. Hands down, Zara has become one of my favorite retailers because you can find some really unique pieces that embody all the hottest styles. For example, this blouse I’m wearing doesn’t just feature one trend, but two: star print and ruffles. Zara makes it super easy to stay in style.
So more about my top. I feel like lately, you can’t walk into a store without seeing the star print somewhere. Remember my post a few months ago that also featured this print? If not check it out here. As for the ruffle detail of this top, it can be kind of difficult when it is super windy outside because the ruffles fly everywhere, but no condition will stop me from wearing this beautiful blouse.
Day by day I am learning the art of layering. So usually you won’t find me just wearing a shirt or dress without some sort of vest or jacket to complete the look. An army green utility jacket, like the one I am wearing by Mudd, is the perfect transition piece. Throw it over a long sleeve blouse when there is still a winter chill in the air or layer it over a short sleeve t-shirt when the spring weather arrives. If you want to master layering, I highly recommend finding pieces like this versatile army green vest that will pretty much go with any clothes you have hanging in your closet.
For denim, I was going back and forth between flared jeans or my go-to distressed skinny jeans from Old Navy. Don’t get me wrong, I like the look of flared jeans, but for this outfit I wanted more of a straight silhouette, so skinny jeans it is. With a slight rip at the knee and the high waist fit, these Old Navy jeans are a rock star. Now I know why they are called the “Rock Star Skinny Jean.”
Since the weather is not warm enough to wear open toe shoes, my favorite Rocket Dog booties will just have to do. They have gotten so much use this winter and are still going strong as we enter a new season. A basic brown bootie is the perfect shoe to wear when you just have no clue what other shoe to pair with your outfit.
What a shocker, I completed my look with a choker. I chose this basic black suede chocker featuring a gem pendant from Forever 21. Since the neck of my blouse is pretty high and the pattern is pretty dramatic, I just wanted to keep the accessories simple. Plus, the purple gem in my choker picks up the beautiful colors in my top.
There’s nothing about this outfit that I don’t love except for the yucky snow that shows up in some of the photos. Come on, it’s finally spring, so bring on the warm weather, because we all know that warm weather equals more style posts. I hope everyone is enjoying the first few days of spring.
