Spring Uniform

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Walk the line between casual cool and effortlessly sexy in a sweet sundress and wear-forever denim jacket. Your spring uniform has officially been selected! 
Tropical prints are the new floral; they're fresh, bright, and remind us all of warm, beautiful vacation spots - what's not to love? 
This print is so lively and I wanted to emphasize that with my choice of accessories. I didn't want to overwhelm the pattern by adding too much - I think this necklace serves as the perfect compliment. 
Black leather sling-back booties add the perfect amount of edge. I love that this pair from H&M has silver studs. 
Now that it's finally warm outside, I can't get enough of sundresses. By adding a denim jacket to any dress (no matter how casual or formal), you're creating a perfect daytime look that's classy yet appropriate for any occasion. I could wear a jean jacket over a dress any day of the week and feel comfortable and cute!

Start with a bright patterned sundress, throw on a stylish denim jacket, slip into some sexy sling-back heels, and complete the look with statement jewels. Viola, your go-to spring uniform is easy, comfortable, and effortless. 


Wow in your perfect spring uniform:
