4 pieces to wear now & later

Today, I woke up to a casual 25 degree morning. TWENTY FIVE DEGREES here in March in Dallas, Texas. That’s just not supposed to be a thing, y’all, and let me be the first to say that I am over. it.

(To my father proofreading this and about to text me about it, the two periods above were added purposely for emphasis.)

So today, I thought I would share 4 pieces I recently ordered that are perfect for styling now, during these final, borderline winter days, as well as into spring and summer!

O N E // $18 leopard blouse

leopard top // strappy slides // black jeans // pearl earrings

I’ve always been a huge fan of leopard pieces, but this one in particular, with it’s vibrant coloring and easy, chic style, immediately caused an “add to cart” moment. Oh, and did I mention it’s only $17?!

Warning, this top in particular is selling out quickly!

WEAR IT NOW: black jeans, black mules, black blazer

WEAR IT LATER: white jeans, white statement earrings, wedges

T W O // striped swing dress

stripe dress // bow slides // pearl earrings // white sweater

You just can’t go wrong with classic navy and white stripes, especially when it comes to an easy swing dress…. that has pockets, no less! This incredibly-comfy dress has become a fast-favorite of mine. Pssst, it’s under $50!

WEAR IT NOW: white sneakers, white sweater, pearl earrings

WEAR IT LATER: woven headband, raffia slides, straw tote

T H R E E // smock waist dress

smock waist dress // nude heels // pearl earrings

I’m a firm believer that a gal can never have too many easy, little black dresses. This one has the cutest smock-waist detail, which makes it both flattering and versatile! A fab buy at under $50. I’m wearing an XXS!

WEAR IT NOW // leopard ballet flats, chic coat

WEAR IT LATER // espadrilles, straw tote, statement earrings

F O U R // scalloped sweater

scalloped sweater // cashmere wrap // black jeans // leopard booties (sold out, similar linked) // pearl earrings

I wore this scalloped sweater to an event last week, and received so many DMs about it! Y’all, it may be my favorite spring purchase thus far. Under $50, and such amazing quality!

It comes in three other colors as well, and I’m wanting them all. I’m wearing a size XS, for reference.

WEAR IT NOW // leopard booties, black jeans, cashmere scarf

WEAR IT LATER // denim shorts, red striped headband, straw tote, white kicks

I don’t know about you, but even though the cold won’t let up, I’m tired of buying winter wear. These spring pieces are giving me all the feels, and I can’t wait to wear them as the weather warms up as well!

Love from Texas,
