How to Transition into Spring

In typical Indiana fashion you don’t know what the weather will be like from day-to-day.  The temperature will vary anywhere between warm 60 degree temps to cold  30 degrees.  If you are anything like me you are wanting to begin switching your closet over and begin dressing in all of your spring clothing!  Here are a few ways that I dress for spring when the weather won’t cooperate for dresses and sandals.


Tip # 1 Wear lighter colors

I love lighter colors for spring.  Neutrals are definitely my go to color when I am ready for spring.  This sweater from Shein is perfect to transition into spring.  It has fun zipper details that adds interest.  I like to keep my clothing lighter so I can add fun pieces to brighten up my look.


Tip # 2 Add Bright Accessories

I love to help brighten up my looks for spring with accessories.  Purses can be the perfect pop of color.  The Carson Saddle Bag from Vera Bradley is gorgeous and perfect for every day use.  The turquoise color goes with just about anything!


How do you dress for spring when the temps are not quite ready to change?

Clothed From Grace

I am urging spring on this week through my clothing.  I am hoping that the bright colors and spring patterns will help spur warmer weather.  If this doesn’t work at least I have spring break in less than 2 weeks!  I cannot wait until I am laying on the beach watching my boys play!

Outfit Details || Top: c/o Clothed from Grace || Jeans: Old || Booties: Nordstrom || Triangle Necklace: c/o Vera Bradley || Pendant Necklace: Kendra Scott || Bag: c/o Vera Bradley || Sunglasses: c/o Vera Bradley ||

I was so excited to find out that the ladies from Clothed from Grace are originally from my hometown!  This top from is so perfectly my style.  I love the boho feel and the flowy fit!  I have been obsessed with bell sleeves lately, and the crochet back adds a gorgeous detail that is a little unexpected.  Use code SHOPAHOLICMA for 15% off your purchase.


Since it was a school day and I cannot wear jeans I threw on my go to black skinnies.  At some point I want to try this top with a pair of wide legged jeans and wedges!


When I wear flowier pieces I love to keep my jewelry fun.  this Triangle Double Necklace from Vera Bradley that added a touch of color with the turquoise.  Then to add a lengthening look I added my Aiden necklace by Kendra Scott.  Since the sleeves were shorter an arm party was a must!


Since it is now spring I had to add another pop of color with the Carson Saddle Bag by Vera Bradley.  This has been my go to bag in recent days.  Even though the color is bright it adds the perfect pop of color to my looks that I am craving.  How are you dressing for spring?

Anorak Jacket: Closet Staple + Life

Life has been extremely crazy over the last few weeks!  We’ve had state testing going on at school, birthday celebrations, and just normal crazy life.  I had to take a step back from blogging for a few weeks to stay ahead of everything at home.  We are going to be starting baseball and soccer soon so I know that my posts may be sparse.  My hope is to post 1-2 times a week, but we will see.  Please check in over on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with daily outfit inspiration!  Once summer arrives I should have more time to blog regularly!

Outfit Details || Sweater: Similar || Booties: Nordstrom || Earrings: Kendra Scott || Necklace: c/o Sugar Fix via Target (BOGO 50%)

This week I found myself reaching for my Anorak Jacket two different times. This jacket is one of those closet staples that I can wear pretty much all year.  It can be dressed up with a sweater, accessories, and a pair of booties.


Nike Shoes: Option 1 || Option 2 || Option 3 ||

It can also worn casually with leggings and a pair of athletic shoes.  This is one of my favorite ways to be comfortable, yet still look put together.


The anorak jacket is also the perfect piece for layering on a day that starts off cool and ends warm.  The olive green is a neutral and goes with just about every color out there.  It pairs perfectly with other neutrals, brights, and pastels. What is your favorite way to wear your anorak jacket?

If you don’t have one, but are looking for the perfect one I have linked a few below!

Date Night

I was super excited to go out to dinner last weekend for my birthday!  I always struggle through with what to wear when going out.  I wanted to wear something special that is not my everyday.  Let’s face it girls, we want our men to notice how fabulous we look!  I was at a loss on what to wear until I saw this gorgeous off the shoulder top from Lane201.


I’ve been obsessed with bell sleeves lately and the fact that this top had them had me swooning!  The flowiness of this top was feminine and a touch on the provocative side that was perfect for a night out.  I added simple jewelry so the top was showcased.  When hubby noticed my outfit I knew I had chosen well!  This one definitely caught his eye!  These sassy sunglasses from Vera Bradley helped me feel even more put together.


These Steve Madden boots are one of my favorite pairs!  They are extremely comfortable and go with just about anything!  They were one of the best gifts I received this Christmas!  What is your go to look for date night?
