Hey loves!

Spring is here in Dallas! As a Michigander all of my life, Spring usually doesn’t hit Michigan until about May. So to have warm spring weather in Dallas in March always amazes me. But, I’m here for it because I can start transitioning winter pieces in my closet and remix them for spring! Like this velvet midi skirt I got a few weeks ago. I have been in love with it since I pulled it out of the package and the luxe velvet touched my fingertips. Was that too much? Sorry, but this skirt is just simply LOVELY and I want you to buy it!

 

If you are wondering how to wear velvet in Spring, the answer is pretty simple. You want to find a lightweight velvet piece that you can easily layer to go with the ever changing temps. The idea with extending velvet from Winter to Spring, is to make it more of a transitional piece that you can layer with multiple items in your closet. When I bought the skirt, my initial plan was to wear it with a sleek turtleneck and knee boots with a nice, streamlined coat and vampy lips. Well, I never got around to wearing that look since Spring got here so quickly. So I made some easy changes to make it spring ready! When I styled this look, it was one of those moments where I was desperate to make it happen. I was deep in my closet, searching on what to wear with this skirt. Nothing really stood out to me and I was close to giving up lol. Can I be honest with you for a sec? When I post looks on the blog, there is a little pressure there to get the look right. So I really go through it when I am creating an outfit because I don’t want y’all side eyeing me like “ummm girl, no!” lol.

 

Anyhoo, I am certainly pleased with this look. It has my name written all over it! I was glad that I was able to pair this velvet midi skirt with a few other spring transitional pieces such as the bomber jacket and the open toe booties (old Zara sale goody). I see myself wearing this look to events, church and brunch too!

 

I hope this post on how to wear velvet in spring gave you a few ideas. Do you have any velvet pieces in your closet that you want to carry in to spring? Let me know, I’d love to know how you plan to wear it!

Hey Loves! I’m glad to have you stop by the blog today. After three attempts of my laptop shutting down on me, I sure hope you enjoy this post! I’m back wearing this adorable olive green bomber jacket again. I always reach for it when I head out the house. Its great finding those “trendy” yet practical pieces to incorporate in your wardrobe. I have a feeling this bomber jacket will be worn plenty, trend or not! I’m also wearing my favorite leather jogger pants. These pants are one of my go to’s. For $15, you better get you a pair NOW!! Its nothing like comfy pants (drawstring waist anyone?) you can wear day or night and feel like a fashionista!! I’m also loving my sunglasses. Target always gets me in the accessory aisle. These “cat eye” sunglasses are no exception and I am happy to add them to my collection.
A few weeks back, I wrote a blog post called “Twenty Things You Don’t Know About Me” and I spoke on how cautious I am with friendships. I wanted to touch base on this a little bit. I’m 34 years old and I have had a few experiences on failed friendships. One: my best friend that I had known since high school, decided that she no longer wanted to be my friend after I got married in 2009 and I haven’t heard from her since. How did that come to be? I have no clue and couldn’t tell you! Two: my college friends/roommates and I had a huge falling out, partially over an idiot boyfriend I was dealing with. I saw a side of my “friends” that I didn’t like or trust. In looking back, I wish I never met the guy! Maybe if I didn’t, I still would’ve been friends with these ladies. But, in my heart I knew it was a good thing that the “friendships” were no more and I have no regrets.
Finding friends as a woman is completely different then men. Men can bond easily over sports, Playstation games or any other random topic. For women, it takes an open mind to be willing to connect with another woman.  As I said in my previous post, I didn’t make friends until a year after I moved here. Its important to have solid friendships you can count on. Someone you can share things with and be yourself. So today, I want to encourage you to evaluate your friendships! Are you pouring into them more then they are pouring into you? Do you feel in your heart this person has your back, cheers you on and loves you? Do they show signs of envy? Mistrust? Is this friendship only for a season or a lifetime?
It was in my heart to share with you some of the different types of friendships in my life currently that I love and would not change for the world.
1) Can call at anytime and talk about absolutely nothing
2) Haven’t talked in months or years but can pick up the conversation like nothing changed
3) Text buddies: life is busy and a phone call may take too much effort. But, a text is just as fun too!
4) The friend who cheers you on, share your deepest secrets and is proud to be your friend
5) The friend you have known all your life that you can talk about childhood memories and experiences with from way back when.
I saw this quote on Instagram and boy, did it resonate with me!
“You don’t need a certain number of friends. You just need a number of friends you can be certain of!”
Tell me your experiences with friendships! Do you have the same “types” of friends that I do?

I’m not a person who feels like I have to participate in every trend out there. Some of them I love but aren’t really practical or I’m just not that enthused. But, I’m here for this one! The bomber jacket has made its way to this years spring trend and can be seen on celebrities and fashionistas alike! It’s super casual and relaxed, but can be worn a variety of ways to dress up or down your look. You can find it in many fits and colors. I even saw it in a blush pink shade (NEED!) When my little eyes spotted this bomber jacket in my favorite olive green color, it took no time from going from the rack to the register! The fit is amazing, the weight is perfect for this crazy, inconsistent weather and its pretty much EVERY THING! There are so many ways to style a bomber jacket: with a midi dress and heels, t shirt and sneakers, leather pants or culottes. The possibilities are ridiculous!  I kept it simple with a cute graphic tee (“Haute Mama” anyone?), gray skinny jeans and statement bag. This is one of those looks when I think of the saying, “Don’t ask me what I’m doing, you know I’m out here being cute!” Ha Ha!!
Tell me, how do you feel about the bomber craze? Are you all over it or nah?!
See you soon for my next post!
