We are well into the winter season, which also happens to be my least favorite season. Sorry all of you winter lovers! I love the holiday season, but once that’s over I’m ready for the snow and cold to go away. During the winter months, I find I get into a bit of a fashion rut eventually as well. With living in Minnesota, I feel like I’m stuck wear the same few pairs of shoes (boots/booties) because I don’t want to ruin my other ones with the salt. Then I end up having my go-to sweaters, vests, and leggings that are on repeat because they are what’s most comfortable, yet warm. The rest of my clothes are left neglected. Anyone else find themselves in a fashion rut during the winter?
This winter, I’m trying really hard not to fall completely into my usual fashion rut. Some weeks when it’s really cold, it does happen. However, I feel like I’m doing better at switching up my outfits. If you find yourself needing some winter fashion inspiration, I hope you’ll get it in today’s post. I’m going to share with you my winter fashion must-haves. The fashion picks I’m sharing with you are the things that I find myself reaching for again and again because I love them so much.

Today we’re bring you another fall post! Hopefully you’re not sick of them yet! Fall is our favorite season in general, but it’s also our favorite season fashion-wise. We love the style of clothes, shoes, and accessories, as well as the colors. Fall is the one season that we don’t get sick of styling outfits for over time. Today, we’re going to tell you what are top fall fashion favorites are this year so far!
| Express Top | Red Dress Boutique Skirt | J. Crew Necklace | Target Booties |
I’m really excited about this week’s What We Wore Wednesday outfit. I originally was going to wear this outfit while on vacation in St. Lucia, but of course I over packed and ended up not wearing it. Since I didn’t get a chance to wear this last week I thought it would be a great look for work! I love this floral printed skirt. I just think it’s fun and I really like the length of it. Also I just can’t get enough of these Target booties. They are SO comfy and cute!!
| Lilly Pulitzer top | The Buckle shorts | Target Sandals | Tiffany & Co necklace |
Yesterday I didn’t do a whole lot. I just spent the day doing things around my house. Because of this I just wanted to go with a casual outfit that was comfortable. I got this Lilly top this summer and it’s so soft and comfortable that I thought it would be perfect for a laid back day. I like it even better on and now want it in more patterns! I paired the Lilly top with some white denim shorts from The Buckle. I’ve had these shorts for quite a few years, but they fit me really well and are comfortable. It will come as no surprise that I finished off the look with my white sandals from Target. They just got with so much!
It’s a nice day today and since I have to work, I decided to wear one of my new skirts! I got this skirt on sale on Red Dress Boutique for only $15, such a steal! With this outfit being black and white, I went with a bright coral necklace to add a little pop of color to the look! I love this classy look for a day at work.

I wanted an outfit for today that was dressy enough for going out for supper yet not too much for going to a movie. I decided on my white chambray tunic from J. Crew paired with a statement necklace and jeggings. I also added my royal blue Steve Madden flats to add some color to the look. I thought this was simple enough for the movies yet still had a little pop to make it nice enough for going out to eat.

Like Rachel, I also wanted an outfit that was comfortable yet dressy for going to a movie and out to eat. It was another chilly Tuesday, so I decided to wear a lightweight sweater. The short sleeve top I’m wearing is so comfortable that I have it in two other colors. I really like that it’s a longer length as well. I, of course, finished off my look with one of my favorite statement necklace and a pair of booties.

With Rachel being home for Easter weekend, we were able to spend the whole day together on Friday. We both love baking, so we started off our morning by baking some donuts. We tried out two donut recipes from Sally’s Baking Addiction. You can find the chocolate donut recipe here and the funfetti donut recipe here.
We had a lot of fun making these donuts and they were quite simple to make! Our favorite were the chocolate glazed donuts. We think the funfetti donuts would be better with less sprinkles in the batter.
After baking and breakfast, we planned on going shopping and out for lunch. Here are our outfits from the day!

We headed to our local mall first for a little shopping. American had BOGO so we couldn’t resist buying a few clothing items from there. Michelle with being her indecisive self decided to buy a new dress for Easter from Francesca’s. We also made a stop at TJ maxx. We each got a new small cross body purse. Rachel stocked up on one of our favorite Dry Shampoos and Michelle bought an artificial flower arrangement.
For lunch we went to one of our favorite restaurants, The Loop. Instead of ordering entrees, we decided to share some appetizers. We went with chicken tenders, cheese curds and wings! They were all very delicious. Our favorite is definitely the cheese curds because they are served with siracha ketchup, which makes them so much better! Needless to say, we were very full afterwards.
We’ve really been enjoying our weekend together! It’s our last time together until Rachel is done with school for the year. We can’t wait to spend the summer together! Keep an eye out for our Easter post tomorrow!
It’s that time of the year, where I start getting antsy to buy new spring clothes (even though I have plenty of clothes)! I had done pretty well at holding off, but now that it’s actually getting a bit warmer here in the Midwest I decided it was time to get a start on my spring shopping. Over the past week or two, I’ve done a little online shopping and shopping at my local mall as well. Let’s get into the fun part- what I bought!
Store: J. Crew Factory
When I saw this shirt online, I knew I had to have it and in more than one color! I love that it’s light weight, has the scalloped bottom, and comes in pretty spring colors. I can definitely see myself wearing these two shirts a lot this spring and summer. I was also lucky enough to purchase these shirts when J. Crew Factory had a 30% off coupon code online. You can see this shirt here.
Store: Red Dress Boutique
After searching for weeks and weeks (it seemed like), I finally found the perfect Easter dress! I like that this dress isn’t too short and it also has pockets. The color is great too for Easter. Since it won’t be too warm where I live on Easter, I’ll wear a white cardigan over this dress if I get cold. Here is the dress on the website. Unfortunately it’s out of stock right now, but I have seen this dress in other colors on different online boutiques!
I went shopping at this boutique over the weekend a picked a few great spring pieces. I was also lucky enough that it ended up being Buy One Get One 50% off mix and match. I got four things so two of my items were 50% off, which was a great deal.
I love the sleeves on this top, as well as the color. I’m thinking I might wear this shirt or one of the other shirts I got from here to my boyfriend’s Easter on Saturday. You can find this top here.
I was instantly in love with this shirt when I tried it on in the store. I really love the color of it and it’s so soft and comfy! I think this is going to be one of my favorite tops. It can be found here.
This top is really soft as well. I like the pattern on it and think it’s another perfect top for spring! Here is this top.
These earrings just seemed perfect for spring! I wanted to get a pair of earrings that was quite different from the earrings I have already. This pair is definitely different from anything I have. I think they are so pretty. They look even better in person and on the website so make sure you click this link to see the coloring better!
Store: Bauble Bar
I’ve been browsing the Bauble Bar website for awhile now, but had never made a purchase. I saw that the first weekend of spring they were having a promo code for 30% off so I thought that was the perfect time to make my first purchase.
I’m so excited about this necklace and earrings. This necklace will be able to go with so much and really dress up a lot of my shirts! I’ve been wanting this style of earrings for awhile now so I’m really happy that I finally have a pair. I really can’t wait to wear both of these. I can’t find the necklace online anymore, but the earrings can be found here.
That wraps up my spring haul. I hope this post has given you some spring inspiration for your shopping. Let me know, which item or items you like best in a comment below!
