5 Looks I’m Lusting For: March

It’s March & I’m so excited about it mostly because I’m ready for sunny days, bright colors and all the spring things. Today I’m sharing a little fashion inspiration to get you thinking about spring, too! Add a little bliss to your closet and check out these stunning looks I’ve been lusting over this month.

Pink Top

I’m loving everything about this look from the pastel pink top, to the high-waisted denim to this oversized bag perfect for any weekend getaway. If you’ve been around the blog for awhile, you’ll know I’m all about neutrals, but there’s something about this light pink color that makes me want to reinvent my closet and style altogether. And TBH, I need to find an off-the-shoulder top! Leave links to your favorite picks in the comments!

One of my favorite pieces from high school was a denim skirt. I honestly wore it to where it was falling apart after several good years of wearing it. Since then, I haven’t owned one, but it has been on my list since the button-up, denim skirts became popular over the last few years. My favorite part of this look is that you can throw any comfy, T-Shirt with it and you’re set for the day. I love how versatile a denim skirt is, and it’s on my wish list.

Moto Jacket

Is Brighton not the example of #OutfitGoals?! The moto jacket she’s wearing is  e v e r y t h i n g  I want and need in my life right now. The soft, blush blouse paired with the edgy jacket is the perfect balance of two contrasting styles. Needless to say, she is slaying in this outfit that is perfect for spring. Her look would be perfect as a transitional look as we move into warmer weather for the next few months.

Stripped Top 

Slip-on shoes are everywhere and I don’t know why I don’t own a pair for myself yet. What is better than having a comfortable, trendy pair of shoes that can go with everything? Also, I am loving the stripped, button-down, off-the-shoulder top paired with this white denim. I’ve truly been loving this clean and simple look. I can’t wait to be able to wear tops without layering tons of sweaters and jackets to cover it up.

White Denim

White denim + ivory sweater + sandals + nude hate = perfect outfit situation. I love seeing the contact of the different hues of nude and brown paired with white and off-white colors. Honestly, playing with different shades of color like this is WAY out of my comfort zone. But you all know I love to throw in a look that is something I wouldn’t normally wear so that I can inspire myself to try different things!

5 Looks I’m Lusting For: December

Another month means that I can share what looks I’m lusting for this month. December fashion is a lot like late-fall fashion: tons of layers and a lot of different accessories. I love being able to share what has been inspiring my style, so grab a cup of coffee (or wine) and feel little bliss as we talk about these lovely outfits.

Things I’m currently loving, nude details like this blanket scarf and over-the-knee boots; and finding simple ways to elevate your comfortable outfit! Who says that leggings and a flowy top can’t look fashionable and stylish? What’s not to love about this look?

Layers are everything in December. In Pennsylvania, I live off of cold-weather necessities like big sweaters. But, I love how this outfit takes a bulky sweater, and adds a more feminine vibe with the long-sleeved, white blouse. It adds a unique, unexpected element to the look.img_7653

I’m absolutely L U S T I N G  for this long, grey cardigan. I can imagine that it feels like wearing a blanket outside, but it’s adorable and perfectly acceptable to wear in public, especially for winter. Layering this with a bulky, turtleneck sweater dress only makes this look more complete.

I don’t know why but I’ve been so interested in leopard-printed shoes recently, but I’ve been on the hunt of pair of them for awhile now. This outfit only motivates my drive to find a pair for myself I also love how they look with a bold, red sweater. I’m a big believer that leopard and red look stunning together. Personally, I think this outfit would be perfect for a holiday party.

winter-fashion-camel-coat-scarfPom-pom hats are totally in style, and I’m loving it. Whether you’re on the hunt for a perfect Christmas tree, or you’re out and about shopping for everyone on your list; this outfit is perfect for all your holiday errands. I love the pops of blue and green against the neutrals in this look. It’s a simple outfit that is versatile for December.

bb102416_5-posts-i-lovedoct
Another month has almost passed, which means it’s another opportunity to share some of the amazing blog posts I loved this month from fellow bloggers. If you’re new to Blissfully Brunette, you’ll see that I share links each month from blog posts I want to share with bloggers. I think it’s important to spread the love in the blogging community, so I try to do so any time I can. Make sure to leave a comment below sharing what YOUR favorite posts were from other bloggers from the month. Or, you can share your favorite post from your own blog!

Dear Brands, Bloggers Don’t Work For Free” from Summer

I’ll save the gushing and fangirling over Summer and quote my favorite piece from her post: “Bloggers are great at what they do. You, as a brand, clearly know that. If you didn’t, you wouldn’t keep reaching out and trying to get us to work with you. You know that we have influence. You also know deep down that our influence is huge for your brand. So, why don’t you start acknowledging our worth as bloggers (and people) and actually pay us the compensation we deserve.” If that didn’t make you want to check out her post, I don’t know what will. Summer has a way with words, and she did an amazing job of putting brands in their place. You go, girl!


How to Overcome Perfectionism and Accept Your Flaws” from Molly

I have stumbled across Molly’s blog in the past, but her post earlier this month inspired me. Dealing with OCD and anxiety is something I work on every single day, but her post helped me realize that we all have flaws—and that’s perfectly okay. I read through her flaws and realized that her and I have almost ALL THE SAME FLAWS. She’s like my perfectionism soul sister. It’s amazing she was able to not only recognize her flaws, but post them online in a vulnerable space. Molly also provided some incredible tips on how to overcome perfectionism.


Organization Tips for Bloggers and Side Hustlers” from Erin

As someone who has a demanding, full-time job in addition to blogging—this post was so important for me to read this month. I’m sure there are many other people who are working full time and blogging can also to relate to this as well. If you’re someone who is working on a blog, a job, and balancing everything else in your life, I would definitely recommend reading this post from Erin! You won’t regret it!


Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe” from Becca

You all know that I’m all about pumpkin-flavored anything and everything during the fall season. I’ve been on the hunt for a PSL recipe to make at home, and I LOVED this recipe from Becca because it’s so simple and doesn’t take a lot of time or ingredients to create! If you’re looking for an inexpensive, easy recipe to have on hand when you’re craving a pumpkin spice latte, make sure to save this recipe for yourself.


Autumn Fashion Find: Fall Floral Dress” from Chelsie

Not only do I love Chelsie’s style and her fashion posts in general, but I love how she’s an honest and real fashion blogger. She’s not the type of person to have an outfit that’s over $300 because that’s simply not realistic for most people. But that’s what I love about Chelsie, she finds ways to make her fashion posts inspiring and unique without breaking the bank. I think that’s something we all can respect, especially if you’re someone who is trying to save money!

5 Minimalist Outfits for Autumn

Minimalism is something I’m learning and incorporating more into my every day life. So far, I’ve been loving every minute of it. I feel less stressed, more focused, and happier with adopting some of the minimalist habits.

One area I’ve been focusing on the last few months is my style. Last month, I shared my September edition of “5 Looks I’m Lusting For,” which featured more neutral-only and neutral-based looks. If you knew me five years ago, I was obsessed with bright colors. There was actually a period in time where I didn’t own any black. (I was young and stupid, don’t judge—haha!) Flash forward to present day, and more than 60 percent of my wardrobe contains neutrals.

I want to share my progression of style, and where I see my style going in the future with this minimalist mindset. So, I’m sharing five minimalist outfits you can wear for Autumn! I hope you find a little inspiration from these looks, and can incorporate them into your your wardrobe for the season.

Make sure to leave a comment below telling me about your personal style, and how it has evolved over the years!

There’s nothing better than bulky sweaters, cute coats, and booties for the season. Aside from all the trendy pieces, it’s chic because of the neutral colors. People think minimalists only wear black and white, but you can wear colors and still be a minimalist. As long as you find a color palette that works for you and your style, and only have essentials that you can mix with several outfits, you are on the right track!

25 Great New Outfits For Your Winter Lookbook - Style Estate -Everything about this look is #FALLFASHIONGOALS. I’m not going to lie, everything about this makes me fall in love with the idea of dressing minimally. I love an all-black outfit with the addition of the contrasting color to make things pop. In this case, the light, nude heels and coat paired together makes the entire outfit more vibrant yet classic. 739c48c51e76887fd2e9d12192349068I love to throw in a wildcard option that’s out of my comfort zone. As a working woman, I don’t think I could ever pull off a dressy element like a midi skirt and pair it with casual sneakers like the photos above. But, never say never. I love this look, and I like that there’s a contrast from professional and comfortable mixed together. Who knows, maybe I’ll rock some sneakers with a skirt for this season.8fcf2e39aae7e67b381c2b89fd39cb38“Doe she only like camel-colored coats?!” No, definitely not. But I will say I think they’re an amazing color to pull off during Autumn, so I might as well show you some options while you’re reading through this post. Again, an all-black outfit for the base of the outfit paired with another neutral like camel makes the outfit pop! I’m definitely in the market for a camel coat after writing this post.

8ff10ff2d6fc564e5e109cd4cc7bfdf9This is a perfect example that you don’t need to only wear black and white to have a minimal outfit. Adding little pops of color and patterns can pull the entire look together. I love the addition of a burgundy bag with these fun, leopard flats. This adds a little excitement to a simple, comfortable look. I’ve been on the hunt for leopard flats, and hoping I can find some as cute as these above!
