Spring Pastels

Pink blouse (+ another gorgeous option here) | Lavender necklace

Spring colors are my absolute favorite! I love that pastels don't stray too far away from my favorite neutrals (and pair well with them too), but add some color and so much femininity. Since I won't be able to add many to my closet this spring, I've been doing lots of 'wish list' shopping with pieces I'd love to have (including all of the above).

Tops & dresses



Skirts, shorts, pants



Accessories


Any particular pastel pieces you're wishing for?

A Fun Accessory

 Top: Banana Republic (old, similar here + more below) | Jeans: Forever 21
Bag: The Limited | Wedges: Target (love these)
Headband: Do-Da Wraps c/o (navy/white vertical stripes in turban style) | Necklace: Forever 21 (similar here & here)
Watch: Fossil | Bracelet: Reece & Blair from Crave Boutique

One of my favorite ways to add a little 'vavavoom' in the spring and summer (or to cover up humidity-stricken or unwashed hair) is wearing headbands! I'm loving my new navy & white turban headband from Do-Da Wraps, and it's going to be perfect for anything from work (like styled above) to a top knot at the pool. Do-Da Wraps is a new favorite Etsy shop, and I love Sarahn's quick turnaround time, adorable fabrics, and wonderful customer service. Something I really liked was that any of the fabrics on her Etsy page can be made as a headwrap or the turban style, and that my headband is smooth and stretchy (much more comfortable than headbands I've owned in the past). Be sure to check out Do-Da Wraps, and take 25% off your entire order with the code 'JACY25'!

Springtime Boho

Top: Tobi (last year | similar here, here, here) | Jeans: Forever 21
Shoes: BCBGeneration (last year | similar: low, middle, higher)
Clutch: Gap (similar) | Nails: Orly 'Pink Waterfall'
Bracelets: Lily and Laura (great online shop to buy them here)

I feel like the warmer it gets, the more color I want to wear! You know I'm mostly a neutral type of gal, but I do love some fun pops of color. I love the bohemian vibe come spring and summer, so this top is the perfect way to wear it subtly. I wore it to a great concert with my best friends last spring, so it has some fun memories tied to it too :)

I hope the weather is warming up where you are! It looks like we're finally going to have a sunny, rain-free day today to enjoy the temps and blooms :)

April Remix: White Jeans {1}

Shirt: Forever 21 (similar) | Jeans: American Eagle (+ similar pair below)
Shoes: BCBGeneration (similar low, middle, high) | Clutch: Gap (old | love this one)
Watch: Fossil | Earrings: Francescas (similar high and low)
Bracelets: Lily and Laura (handmade by women in Nepal | great shop for them here)

I realize white skinny jeans are nothing new and exciting, and that I've remixed them multiple times before (last fall included). But everything spring rolls around they feel so fun and fresh, and I love how many ways there are to style them! Prints, solids, sweaters, breezy tanks, brights, neutrals...all so cute! So, stick with me as I wear my trusted white skinnies some more. This is my first look of 3 this month!

Spring Beauty | Pastel Polish


I'm sure most of you have noticed how much of a nail polish addict I am! You'll rarely catch me without polish on, and I go through a semi-intense inner battle every time I'm at Target or Ulta to avoid buying 17492 more colors. I used to be somewhat reckless when buying nail colors (it was a great little pick-me-up in college when I had pretty much no money to spend on myself), but now I've started planning what colors to buy so I'm not wasting my money (because these little things add up).

Mint is such a fun spring color, and Revlon's 'Minted' is one of my very favorite polishes (I couldn't find a link for you all - so sorry). Essie 'Mint Candy Apple' is also a cute mint polish.

I know white isn't technically a pastel...or a even color...but I bought Essie's 'Blanc' last week and I'm obsessed! With two coats I got an awesome opaque white, and it's going to look even better in the summer with a tan.

Pale pinks are honestly a year-round look for me, but I do wear them more in the springtime. Essie 'French Affair' is a brighter, more 'chalky'  pink that makes a girly statement. I wore it for our engagement photos, so I have a feeling I'll always love it :) OPI's 'Mimosas for Mr. and Mrs.' is another one of my favorite polishes, and it's the perfect delicate pink. My best friend used it as the nail color for her wedding last fall (seriously...how cute is the name?), and I'm thinking about following suite. Essie's 'Fiji' and 'Ballet Slippers' are some other gorgeous pale pinks.

Lavender is probably my favorite color (besides black if that even counts), and I love it so much that it's actually my wedding color. I own two different lavender polishes and love both equally. Revlon 'Lily' (pictured) is a brighter lavender, and Essie 'Nice is Nice' is a more pale and sheer lavender.  


What colors (and brands) are you loving right now for spring??
