Coral and Serenity Spring Shopping List & Link Up #8

1. Maxi Dress: ONE by Pink Stitch Resort // 2. Satchel: See by Chloe // 3. Wallet: See by Chloe
4. Loafer: Jeffrey Campbell // 5. Stackable Rings (Set of 3): Kendra Scott // 6. Wallet: Tory Burch
7. Link Bracelet: Eddie Borgo // 8. Studded Wallet: Rebecca Minkoff
9. Satchel: Rebecca Minkoff (30% off) // 10. Floral Blouse: Joie 
11. Espadrille Sandals: Joie // 12. Sunglasses: Linda Farrow Luxe // 13. Panama Hat: Hinge

I have reached that point - I think I am ready for spring. I have been shopping around for some new spring clothes, and I am ready to wear sandals again. As much as I love winter and wearing chunky sweaters and boots, I am ready for some spring sweaters and lighter jeans (like these). In putting together today’s style collage, I chose the coral and blue because I think they look like spring - and the blue reminds me of being at the beach.

For spring, I have been looking for a new handbag.  I am probably going to get a smaller bag - not one of the mini bags - although, I think they are pretty cute. I am strongly considering a RED bag, like these, but I do love the blue and blush options. Thoughts? Which color would you pick?

And, this week's LINK UP...

Red Sweater Styled Two Ways

leather jacket under $60, red topshop sweater, striped blouse, distressed flare jeans, white jeans under $10
1. Biker Jacket: H&M ($60) // 2. Babe Necklace: Nora Kogan (Similar here)
3. Striped Blouse: H&M ($25) // 4. White Jeans: H&M ($10)
5. Red Sweater: Topshop // 6. Distressed Flare Jeans: H&M ($35)
7. Mini Tote: Sophie Hulme // 8. Lace Up Pumps: Sam Edelman
9. Stackable Rings: Alexis Bittar // 10. Fringe Sandals: H&M ($70)

I think this may be one of my favorite style boards so far, with these two being a close second and third.  Black and white paired with a pop of red is such a classic look.  I thought this necklace with this biker jacket was the perfect combination, too.  (Biker Jacket + Babe Necklace = Biker Babe).


I am participating in the following link-ups.

1. Floral Shirt Dress: H&M ($25) (Also in Solid Green) // 2. Double Necklace: H&M ($15)
3. Sleeveless Top: H&M ($10) // 4. Skinny Jeans: H&M
5. Utility Jacket: Topshop // 6. Black Skinny Jeans: H&M ($10)
7. Saddle Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // 8. Platform Boots: H&M
9. Rings (Set of 4) ($15): H&M // 10. Sandals: Topshop

Olive green paired with floral and black is the perfect combination. Both “tops” I have featured are actually shorter dresses being worn over skinny jeans.

Thanks for joining me last week for my Thursday Style Finds. My outfit collage this week was inspired by my two picks from last week. The floral from Amy Ann’s (Straight A Style) and the olive green and black from Gina (On the Daily Express).

The women in my Daily Style Finds: What to Wear series inspired these looks today.  They have been styling green with black and white, which has made me really want to find a green sweater.  In creating these two looks, I have used mostly budget-friendly items - so, a lot of these items are under $50. The skinny jeans are $10 and the moto jacket is under $50.

Red Pants & Leopard Shoes & Link UP #6

red pants, leopard booties, biker jacket, nyfw, new york fashion week

1. Blouse: H&M ($25) // 2. Necklace: Argento Vivo ($5 option) // 3. Dress (Worn as Tunic): H&M
4. Jeans: H&M ($35) // 5. Biker (Moto) Jacket: H&M ($60) // 6. Pants: H&M ($18)
7. Bag: H&M ($25 - Also in Black) // 8. Rings (Set of 3): Argento Vivo
9. Pumps: Sole Society // 10. Boots: H&M ($35)

Red pants are one of my favorite things to wear - and they are one of those items that always get compliments. (And, it really makes my day when someone tells me that after seeing my red pants - they went out and bought some!) I have styled red pants two ways - mixing in budget-friendly pieces. The top on the right is actually a dress - but I am styling it like a longer tunic because it's best to wear a longer top with leggings.  Everything shown is under $100, and mostly around $50 - including the biker jacket that is $60.

Also, LOFT just declared this month - FIREBALL RED - which they have the perfect shade of red, in my opinion.  I picked a utility blouse and cardigan in that color last year - and I love it! Perfect for Valentine's Day.

NYFW starts today! One dream of mine would be to attend Fashion Week, particularly the Fall/Winter shows in February.  Winter clothes are my favorite - and those runways shows are always the best.  A few shows I would like to attend would be BCBG Max Azria and Prabal Gurung.

It has been a busy week, and I am so thankful it is Friday! (Hence, the reason the Thursday Style Finds is going live on Friday.)  A lot of red gift guides have been going around the blogging world, and I wanted to join the party and share a few of my favorite red and burgundy gift ideas for Valentine's Day.  This heart-shaped bag is quirky and fun, and I like the suede cut-out sandals.
