Let The Sunshine In :: sweater + bf jeans

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

How's this for the perfect springtime sweater? It's bright & minty, light, and most importantly the positive message! Does anyone else have The Age of Aquarius song from Hair running through your head when you read this phrase? It's just so perfect for spring, I couldn't resist! 
I don't think I need to tell you twice to let the sunshine in. After an epic winter, it's finally sandal season and this girl couldn't be happier! ...So happy in fact that I decided to wear it on my sweater. Consider this your springtime PSA :)
This electrifying clutch from Oak73 is psychedelic in the best way possible, making it easier than ever to embrace the so-now retro mood. With funky metallics and dizzying designs, the functional accessory makes a wild statement day or night. 
Two words: caged heels. I may be slightly obsessed. After seeing these Sam Edelman sandals in Nordstrom over spring break, I became very excited and knew they were about to see me through many summer nights. They're insanely comfortable, super stylish, AND they come in black. You're welcome.  
A simple yet pretty statement necklace is all this look needs but I decided to glam it up a little bit more by adding big shades, pink lips, and a subtle cateye. And how about these rose gold flower studs by Kate Spade? They're definitely my go-to neutral pair. 
This is such a colorful look I wasn't shy about incorporating even more hues through my arm candy. This bright pink bangle matches my watch and adds a fun finishing touch. 
Fresh blooms sure give me something to smile about!

Ahh the sunshine. Sometimes I feel like a cat when the rays hit me because all I want to do is bask in them and soak up their warmth. I'm not alone, right? I think we all need an extra dose or two of vitamin C after the harsh winter most of us just endured. This week I'm enjoying spring, longer sunny days, and my last five weeks of college (eek)!

That is the perfect Spring Sweater......the color, the writing on the sweater, everything about it. And it looks so pretty with your eye color!

  15. I am obsessed with my boyfriend jeans! Being petite, I never thought I could pull them off but I find myself reaching for them every weekend! I love that you paired casual jeans and a sweater with those heels. So cute! I'm also insanely jealous of your hair.

  47. This is such a beautiful spring outfit Kat! I really like the fact that you used such bright and radiant colors! I think that this sweater is perfectly made for spring not only because of it's beautiful color, but also because of the quote on it! I wish there will be many sunny days in spring! :)
    I also love how you styled together those boyfriend jeans with those heels! I love seeing masculine mixed with feminine! Lookin' great! :)
