Found: The Perfect Cardigan for Spring!

David Yurman ring // MAC lipstick in "pink nouveau" mixed with Smashbox "magenta matte"

I wore this look on Instagram a few days ago :) I have always loved white on white - it's such a crisp and fresh look for spring - but it gets even better when paired with this pastel purple cardigan. Btw, this cardigan is soooo soft. It's one of those items that you want to wear as pajamas haha. I love the slits in the side too (the model on the website shows it better), it makes it even more spring-y. This would be the perfect casual Easter outfit for dinner with family! The ankle strap sandals add a dressier feel to the outfit, but it would also be really cute with wedges.

On another note, hooray for Friday!! What are y'all's plans this weekend? I plan to spend some QT with my boyfriend and watch the Tarheels play some basketball (go heels!!). Plus there are a ton of errands I need to run, including getting my nails done!

Blue & White Bell Sleeve Top

MAC lipstick in "pink nouveau mixed with Smashbox "magenta matte"

This top embodies all of the trends of this Spring... blue and white, stripes, ruffles and bell sleeves! It sold out in a hot second on Nordstrom's website, but they JUST restocked it in all sizes so snag it while you can!!! I also found this top and this one that are both pretty similar :)

Sorry for the late post today! I haven't had much energy lately. Yesterday I was fine all day until around 4 p.m. - I started feeling so tired that it was all I could do to raise my arm and check the time on my phone. I ended up going to bed really early and I feel a little better today. I think it may have something to do with allergies?! Does this happen to anyone else?!

Instagram Outfits + Sizing Info

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I thought it was time for an instagram round-up (since it's been a few weeks). I'm putting a lot of the sizing info in this post, but if I forget something or you have a question, feel free to leave a comment! :)

First up, I'm obsessed with this outfit I wore one day last week. The cardigan is almost sold out everywhere else but I did find it on this website fully stocked. I'm wearing the XS/S. It's a great cardigan to have - I wore it back in wintertime in this blog post but it also transitions beautifully into spring!

This lace midi dress is the perfect dress for a spring or summer wedding. It's sold out right now in the "periwinkle" color but keep checking - it seems to come back in stock sporadically! It's still available in white and black - I'm wearing the XS and it's a perfect fit.

I'm including this picture because, how cute does Winnie look?! She's sleeping next to me right now as a write this.

Wearing an XS in this romper - it is pricey but so so cute for spring. The real winner of this look IMO is my Sole Society Keyon handbag - it looks just like Chloe but less than $100!

This ruffle sleeve bow top looks JUST like a major designer's version but is less than $100. I'm wearing the XS and it's TTS.

This tank is an absolute staple in my closet - but size down! I had to go down to a US 2 (I'm usually a US 4 in Topshop) for it to fit nicely.

These two handbags look JUST LIKE Chloe bags, but they're less than $100!

This off-the-shoulder top is another great piece for transitioning into spring - and it's less than $100. The ruffles on the sleeves and hem add a little flirtiness, and a love the floral pattern. I'm wearing a size XS.

This Goodnight Macaroon "Aruna" top is on sale currently - I have it in white in a size small. I do have to wear a strapless came or bandeau underneath because it's a tiny bit see-through.

I was so happy to find this gingham cold shoulder top for less than $40! It's made of a really soft material so it's incredibly comfortable, and you can still wear a regular bra with it (unlike off-the-shoulder tops!). I'm wearing size XS.

Ok this outfit may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's one of my favorites of all time!! I love the flowy skirt with the high slit. I'm wearing a size US 2 in each item. And the white crop top looks different on the model because I have it tied differently!

I blogged about this dress the other day - but I love the light blue color of this ruffle off-the-shoulder dress. And it's less than $100! (Wearing XS)

Obsesssssssed with this whole look from Charleston. I had to size down in the jeans - just one size down from my usual. And in the white cold shoulder top I'm wearing a size XS. This top is lined and not see-through at ALL. Both pieces are less than $100.

One shoulder tops are all the trend right now, and I love this classic white one for less than $70. This top does run a little big. I bought my usual XS but I actually need the XXS in it - it's a little loose!

Another look at my favorite outfit :)

One of the things I love about Charleston? There's great shopping on the first floor of our hotel!! I got a lot of questions about my top from Snapchat - this  cold shoulder chiffon blouse is less than $100 and fits TTS.

How pretty is this white dress in front of Rainbow Row (a colorful row of houses in Charleston)? I'm wearing the US 2!

This look was from my instagram last night - the cardigan is super long, super comfy and perfect for transitioning into spring. I was actually hot in this outfit yesterday because it was close to 80 degrees!! Anyway, I'm wearing a size XS in the cardigan :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the day!! I have a lot of work to do this morning, then I'm hoping to spend the rest of the day/night reading. I'm into a REALLY good book right now and can't put it down!

Hot Pink...

Topshop hot pink dress (wearing size US 4, less than $60) // Valentino sandals
gold choker c/o // Louis Vuitton clutch, buy pre-owned HERE

Ok... how cute is this hot pink dress?! Hot pink has always been one of my favorite colors! This dress has everything going for it: less than $60, trendy bell sleeves, and SO comfortable. I'm wearing the US 4 which is the equivalent of an XS! I have two weddings to attend in May and I'm bringing this dress with me - it's so cute for rehearsal dinners, weddings, bridal showers, etc.

Random, but... Chris took me to see Beauty & the Beast recently and it's amazing!! If you haven't seen it, you must go. I honestly didn't have very high expectations because I didn't think anything could live up to the original, but it actually did. Emma Watson is simply amazing. Her acting, her voice, (I couldn't help but notice her perfect skin), everything haha. (Side note: I identified so much with Belle when I was younger because I was the biggest nerd and would spend every second of free time reading!!) Anyway, if you've seen it let me know what you thought!!
