The color blush is huge this spring and I've been all about it. Mauve is so close to blush I couldn't resist this blouse from Tobi! I've been eyeing crossover blouses for a while and was excited to finally get one. The drape of them is so pretty and effortless. It's perfect for dressing up or down. I really like the lightweight fabric, too. It's true to size and I am wearing a small here. Just make sure to add a cami underneath or pin it because otherwise this blouse can become a little too revealing!

Spring Pastels and Confident Twosday Linkup

striped bow tie blouse, light pink coat, Express dark skinny jeans, Tory Burch tote, pink heels
This outfit is giving me all the spring vibes! Our spring is typically quite chilly so this thicker coat from Dresslily keeps me warm while the pretty light pink is seasonally appropriate! I love the wide collar and ability to cinch the waist for a more flattering silhouette. For under $30 is such a great spring coat. It would also look good over top a dress. For a preppy feel I paired it with an adorable striped bow tie blouse. It's unfortunately sold out right now, but I linked to a similar blouse and striped dress! I added dark jeans to keep from looking like an Easter egg. Adding darker colors when you are wearing multiple pastels can help ground an outfit.

Ironically, my first day of spring break and here I am showing a work outfit! The last time I wore this navy dress it was much warmer and I paired it with pink accessories. It's a great dress with a unique envelope style skirt to it. If you've been following this blog for any length of time, you know I am a fan of anything navy so of course I love it! Navy is a classic color that compliments almost every other shade. To wear it for work during the winter, I added tights and a blazer. Most times when I wear skirts or dresses in the winter, I also wear riding boots because they really help keep my legs warm. They make such a difference!

Burgundy Jacket and Feather Print Cami

Since I wear my burgundy pants so much (see 10 ways to wear them here) and found burgundy to be quite a versatile color, I have had a burgundy cardigan or light jacket on my wish list for a while. I found this burgundy waterfall jacket from TOBI and thought it was perfect to fit the bill. Our weather has been in constant flux lately and it can serve as an outfit layer during the day or as a jacket if the weather is warmer. I love the soft feel, too!

Spring Basics You Need This Season


At the beginning of each season, I like to get a few new classic pieces that will refresh my wardrobe. When I am deciding what to get, it's important that the pieces work well for that season, but also have year-round potential. I also want a color and style that flatters, is timeless, versatile, and works well with my current wardrobe. Sound impossible? I promise it isn't! Recently I updated my spring wardrobe with 3 new pieces I found on Chadwicks of Boston. I got a black jersey dress, short-sleeved blush lace top, and mauve cardigan (although I almost ordered this gorgeous navy one and I might still).
