I cannot wait to put away my sweaters and sweatshirts and pull out my lightweight clothing! Yay for spring! As we approach warm weather season, does your wardrobe need some updating? Mine sure does! I think all of the pieces above need to find a way home with me, stat!

The chambray jeans are the bees knees. I NEED these. I may have just ordered a pair. :)

This casual Friday look can be worn both to work and out and about! Dual purposes. I like that!

What do you have as part of your warm weather collection? Do you stock up on essentials or have a few key pieces?

Casual Friday on a Dime: Casual Pop of Color

casual pop of color


Free People Easy Pleat Pant, $78
LOFT Sunwashed Crew Neck Tee, $19.50 (on sale, 40% off!- no code needed).
Forever 21 Modernist T-Strap Flats, $22.80

Even though it’s casual Friday that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your wardrobe! I love these Free People Easy Pleat Pants because of the pop of color! How great is this blue?! I also really like how these pants can be dressed up or down. For example, if you click on the link the model is wearing them with heels. However, in the above picture, she has sandals on. Both look fab. I’m sold.

I love these pants paired with basics that I’m sure you have in your closest! By the way, have you tried one of the LOFT sunwashed tees? They are so soft and comfy! I may have bought one in each color…..

Not only will you look stylish, but you’ll be super comfortable. Who knew elastic waist pants could be cute?! Clearly comfort is a trend with me. :)

These are great pieces to add to your spring wardrobe. Now, if we could just get the spring weather we’d be set!

Do you tend to wear a pop of color on casual Fridays? Or do you keep it basic?

The Look for Less: Sorel Tivoli Boots

That’s right, it’s time to start thinking about winter boots again!  Sorel boots are all the rage on the Big Ten campus at which I work (usually tucked into leggings or skinny jeans, of course), and I’ve been dying to tuck my paws into a pair of warm and toasty boots.

I’m loving the Sorel Tivoli Boots, which retail for $120 at Zappos.  While $120 isn’t incredibly expensive for a pair of good winter boots, they do seem a bit steep for a winter trend.  I started looking for alternatives, and stumbled across these:

The Merona Nara Winter Boot is only $39.99 at Target and looks almost identical.  They look just about as warm and fuzzy as the Sorel boots, and I love the fun plaid!

Looking for Wide Calf Boots? Check out Styles from Ros Hommerson

Ros Hommerson boots


It’s officially tall boot season, which used to make me quite sad. I was an athlete growing up, so ever since high school I’ve had larger-than-normal (normal? I can’t think of a better term here) calves. This meant that, no matter how hard I tried and no matter how many pairs of boots I tried on, I could never find a pair of tall boots that would fit my calves. Even the boots marked “wide calf boots” never fit. If you’ve been in this situation you know how frustrating it can be to not have any boots fit your legs.

Finally, last year I found a pair of that fit me from Zappos! I wrote a Ros Hommerson Boot Review last year and wanted to mention it again for any of you searching for wide calf boots. I honestly can’t recommend these boots highly enough! While normally I wouldn’t attribute any article of clothing or pair of shoes to a heightening in self-esteem, I felt really good about myself when I wore these boots out last year because I could follow some of the trends, like wearing the boots over a pair of jeans! They’re a great quality and I’ll easily be able to wear them for years. (Thank goodness, because they are not cheap.) I only wish they came in brown!

Zappos has a selection of Ros Hommerson Boots. The ones I picked up were in the “wide wide calf” sizing.

Treat Yourself: Hunter Original High Gloss Boot in Chartreuse

I’ve been lusting after a pair of Hunter rain boots for, oh, about three or four years now.  Every season I want at different color (which is probably why I keep holding off on buying some!).  I was just browsing the Zappos website when I came across my fave boot in this punchy chartreuse color!  I LOVE the color and, call me crazy, but I think chartreuse could be a great fall neutral!  It goes with almost everything (really, it does!) and always looks fun and cheery.  Oh,  Hunter Original High Gloss Boot … will this be the year you become mine?  We shall see!  Find this pair of Hunter Boots at Zappos for $125!
