5 Looks I’m Lusting For: May

For awhile, I have been lacking some inspiration with my style over the last month. With the weather being in limbo from spring to an awkward fall season all in one month. Finally, that lack of inspiration has been fading and slowly, but surely, I have feeling my inspiration for fashion come back. As we move into warmer months and the end of spring, I’m falling in love with simple staple pieces like denim jeans, sandals, and fun tops!

Today, I’m sharing some looks I’m lusting for this month. A common theme I’ve noticed for the looks I’ve been inspired by are more casual and versatile. My style has evolved so much over the course of a year, and as I get older, I realize that comfortable is far more important to me than anything else! But let’s be real, who doesn’t want a stylish outfit that’s also comfortable enough to wear from 7 a.m. to 10 at night? Make sure to leave a comment below on what fashion looks you have been inspired by recently.

Wedges + Off-the-Shoulder Top + Denim = a perfect combination for a late spring/early summer outfit! Although I don’t any gingham-patterned clothing, there’s something I love about this look. It reminds me of a New England staple pattern everyone would have if I went to Rhode Island. Maybe that’s why I find it so inspiring—it’s out of my comfort zone in terms of what I would wear on a regular basis.

Dark denim has always been my favorite. I feel like it’s the closest item you can consider professional because they’re sleek and can easily be dressed up with the right pair of shoes and top. Speaking of tops, can we talk about the trends going on in this one? These bell sleeves, high collar and cut-out shoulders are everything I want and need in my closet. Paired with trendy, neutral shoes, and you’re ready for a date night or a night with friends!

Last summer, the pom pom detailing exploded in the fashion world. However, I wasn’t fully on board with this trend because it was EVERYWHERE: bags, dresses, shoes, earrings, scarves. If you would wear it in some form, they could put some pom poms on it. Needless to say, I didn’t think I was going to love this trend, but when it’s put together with the right items like simple shoes and limited accessories, they can make an outfit pop!

Remember what I said about being able to put poms poms on anything and everything? Well, they’re on a pair of shoes; and I think I’m in love with them! I also LOVE that low-heel, chunky sandals are popular for spring and summer this year. I’m all about comfortable shoes I can wear all day long. No one has time for shoes that make their feet hurt. I also love the detail in the sleeves on this smock dress. It is something you can easily wear as early as April and wear until late October because of its versatility (weather permitting, of course).

Another trend that I’ve been seeing so much of recently (and loving) is the ruffles trend. Now, don’t get me wrong, this isn’t necessarily my style anymore, however I’m still inspired by feminine, soft looks like the one above. The ruffles paired with the off-the-shoulder trend makes this top “America’s Most Wanted” for spring and summer. I also have been loving all the different looks I’ve been seeing with white denim, it motivates me and inspires me to take out my own pair and actually wear them!

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.

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.

I cannot believe it’s that last month of 2015. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and now it’s time to focus on my favorite time of year. I truly love Christmas. I’m excited that it’s acceptable to play Michael Bublé’s Christmas album, drink all the Starbucks Holiday drinks, and partake in every Christmas- and winter-related activity.

I’m celebrating December by wrapping gifts, finishing my Christmas shopping, decorating the house, and making plans to spend as much time with my loved ones as possible. It’s the time of year where we should spend with the people we care about most.

I decided to create an outfit that looks put-together, but that’s cozy for the busy days of the season. Sometimes, you need to have an easy, go-to outfit that you can put together in five minutes before running errands. For me, that means leggings, plaid shirts and layers are a must.

With the holiday season upon us, I decided to bring out my inner Christmas geek by wearing red and green without overdoing it. You don’t need to wear ugly Christmas sweaters everyday from December 1st to December 25th to enjoy *sings* the most wonderful time of the year.

Whether you’re Christmas shopping or running errands on the weekends, you’ll feel cozy wearing a festive outfit to show off your Christmas pride!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m incredibly excited for Thanksgiving. This is the first Thanksgiving I won’t have to worry about going into work late after dinner and work overnight. It’s a huge deal for me. So, although I’ll be working an early shift Friday morning, it’ll be worth having tomorrow off.

I decided to create an outfit that looks put-together, but that’s comfortable and cozy. If it gets warm in the house, I can simply take off the denim jacket. Leggings are a must-have during this time of year. Who wants to wear tight jeans on the day where you’re allowed to eat all the food you want? Not me. So I kept it simple with leggings and mid-calf boots to go with this gorgeous dress.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Make sure to leave a comment below!
