It’s FINALLY Friday! Has this week been long or what? It seems like I post a lot of outfits with kimonos, and you’re right ;) They are perfect for spring, and they are super easy to throw on and go. Last weekend, I went to TJ Maxx and stocked up on some basic tees & tanks to go under some new printed kimonos I got. I can’t wait to shoot those this weekend. For today though I wanted to share another lace kimono and how I styled it.

Outfit details: Kimono // Tank // Jeans // Necklace // Earrings // // Birkenstocks (under $100!)

My photographer and I are really trying to branch out on the poses. Bear with me, because I feel stupid sometimes. I really like the way these turned out though.

I’m obsessed with everything blush pink, so I knew I had to have this kimono. You can easily pair almost any print with it. The lace detail is feminine and classic, so I think I will wear this for several years.

If you know me, you know I love Birkenstocks. I talked about how my new suede pair was one of my must-have shoes for spring. This white pair comes in a close second. These don’t have the soft foot bed though, which is the only downside. I still can wear them comfortably all day.

I paired this yellow Kendra Scott necklace with a classic pair of Gorjana hoops to give the outfit a little bling. I’m really trying to figure out how to wear more yellow, so if you have any tips or ideas be sure to let me know!

Happy Monday! AND I’m so thankful for some sunshine today. I’ve really been getting into the spring spirit lately, even though the season doesn’t actually start until later this month. We can never be too prepared though, right? I wanted to start a series here on the blog: The Guide to Spring. As we go, I will share round-ups in different categories, and today’s is all about spring shoes!

I have been trying to re-do my spring shoes collection and be sure I have all of my bases covered. Nothing is worse than the CUTEST outfit without the perfect pair of shoes…am I right ladies? ;) When I went to Seattle, I got a litttttle crazy in Nordy’s so I thought I’d share the shoes I picked up while I was there. Also, I’ll share some other popular pairs I’ve seen on social media and in magazines.

Birkenstocks

Just go ahead and scroll now if these aren’t your style. As far as I’m concerned, these are a staple here in the South. I can remember wearing Birkenstocks way back in jr. high, and I would always get a new pair when I would travel to Florida with my grandparents in the summers. You could pretty much call us the Birkenstock family, because we all had multiple pairs. Birkenstocks are classic. If you choose the right pair, it will be your go-to neutral sandal and a favorite in your closet. I LOVE the soft footbed pairs, and I like how they mold to my feet.

Flats

Is there any better combo than a pair of flats + leopard? No. Leopard is honestly my favorite neutral. I’ve had several pairs throughout the years, but I’m loving this current pair. The pointed toe really adds that little something extra to really make these leopard flats pop.

Tennis Shoes

Pastels, including blush + lilac, are VERY popular this spring. I have always been a New Balance 574 lover. I had the gray pair all throughout high school and college. These are such a classic look, and I’m loving the blush pink for spring! Pair them with yoga pants, jeans, or even white jeans for a cute look.

I am actually pretty proud of myself for getting three distinctly different pairs that I feel go with just about any outfit I could put together. And be sure when you’re shopping to not neglect a couple of black pairs, because you never know when you’re going to need them.

Speaking of shoes, I picked up this pair of espadrilles in Dallas last weekend. Espadrilles are everywhere! I’ll be doing an entire blog post about that shopping trip, so stay tuned ;)

Thanks for reading. Be sure to leave a comment on what types of The Guide to Spring posts you’d like to see. I’m thinking rainy day must-haves, how to wear lilac, etc.

Are y’all staying warm? I will admit, it’s been a struggle here in Arkansas. Don’t let the sun in these photos fool you, it’s still COLD! The good news? Now is the PERFECT time to buy coats if you’re in the market for one, because they are all on sale! Like major sale. I thought I would share this burnt orange coat and striped tee outfit with you and highlight the best coat sales going on now.

Let’s be honest…never thought I’d have a coat this color. In no way am I promoting the Texas Longhorns today…although I know a few people who would be happy if I was ;) This particular coat is sold out which I totally get because it’s gorgeous! Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with several other options below. It was so fun to shoot this look in a field at my photographer’s house. And yes, this was in the middle of winter. This season cannot make up its mind. We are expecting freezing rain tomorrow night so WHO KNOWS.

Guess what?! I’m going to Chicago with my BFF’s this weekend! I went ahead and ordered this coat and I’m so glad I did, because it’s supposed to be under 20 and snowing. It’s on major sale for $89 and it is so so warm & cozy.

Here are the BEST sale coats:

Also, since rainy season is just around the corner, I rounded up the best sale rain jackets here:

I hope you find a good steal on a coat now before winter is over ;) Thanks for reading y’all! Be sure to follow along on our trip this weekend via my IG stories!
