Spring Jackets (Under $100)

Even though it doesn’t feel like it when there’s snow on the ground, spring will be here before we know it. 🙂 So, now is the perfect time to grab a spring jacket you’ll be able to throw on when it’s raining or when you just need an extra layer. There are a ton of great options out there, but some can be pretty pricey. I searched for some more affordable ones, keeping it under $100, but even found a few cute great options for under $50. Here are some of my favorites that I hope you love to!

5 Tips for Transitioning From Winter to Spring

Hi! Happy Friday! Hope you have had a great week. 🙂

It’s not quite spring yet where I live, but that doesn’t stop me from acting like it is. 😉 Today I wanted to share with you 5 tips you can use now for transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring.

IMG_2558

1 Break out your white jeans. I’ve never really followed the Memorial Day to Labor Day rule and I love how white jeans can really brighten up your whole look. No need to leave them sitting in your closet until May! You can grab these white jeans here.

IMG_2559

2 Grab some transition pieces like this long sleeved, peplum from Pink Blush. I love that it’s a thin material (perfect for layering), but also has long sleeves, so it doesn’t look too summer-y. On a side note..this top is incredibly comfortable and flattering. If it came in other colors, I would absolutely get it!

You don’t have to even buy anything new. I’m sure you have tons of long sleeve tops and light sweaters sitting in your closet. You could even break out some of your summer tops and layer them with a sweater, but I’m getting ahead of myself. 😉

3 Change up your colors. No need to leave your comfort zone here! If you’ve been wearing a lot of dark colors, you can mix in some lighter colors like pinks, blues and yellows. If you’ve been incorporating lighter colors all winter, you can start adding some brighter colors like hot pink, coral, brighter blues, etc. Whatever you’re comfortable with, but enough to make a little change. 🙂

4. Layer! This one speaks for itself. Rather than a bulky sweater, choose a few lighter items that you can layer. This lets you stay warm while it’s still chilly, without looking so bundled up.

As I mentioned earlier, you can use some of your summer tops for this too! If you have a cute cami that you love, wear it under a sweater or with a denim jacket and you’re all set!

5. Accessories.  Switch to a new purse, bring out your colorful earrings or necklaces. Even if your purse isn’t a typical spring or summer color, making the change will make you feel like spring is on its way!

Shop the look:

January Instagram Roundup

Today, I am sharing an Instagram Roundup with links to everything I have shared in the last few weeks! I’ve realized that my feed has been pretty full of blush pink and gray, but, like I said on Instagram, I’m not mad about it. 😉

IMG_1812

This outfit is SO affordable! The bag is under $20, the sweater is on sale and these jeans are on clearance! And they are all great staple items!

IMG_1685

I love the lace up details on this sweater! It also comes in 2 other colors and is one of the softest cardigans I have. This clutch comes in and out of stock a lot, but it’s only $25, so check back frequently if you’d like it! It tends to sell out really quickly when it’s in stock.

This dress is one of my all time favorites! The back is so pretty, it comes in a ton of colors and it’s $64. It would be a great bridesmaid or prom dress! This picture is from our honeymoon if Maui. You can read all about Maui in my Maui Travel Guide.

IMG_1610

These leggings are by far my favorites! I got them in 3 colors because they are so comfortable and have pockets. They often go on sale for $25, but are definitely worth the full price too! Love them!

IMG_1925

This post was part of my JORD giveaway (closed), but these shoes were super popular! They are the most comfortable flats I have. I got them in 2 colors and wear them to work all the time. These jeans are called super soft jeggings and they definitely live up to their name. 🙂

IMG_1169

This top from Shop Pink Blush is one of my new favorites. The back has the prettiest lace detail and it’s $37.

IMG_1822

I am so excited to share these self-tanning products! They’re so easy to use and give the perfect amount of color, even for the palest of the pale like me. 😉 They also just launched a tan extender lotion that will make your tan last even longer. You can order them here and use code LARADA10 for a discount!

Hello Gorgeous!

How cute is this sweater from Simply Blush? It’s pretty lightweight, so it’s perfect now with a jacket and will be great on its’ own all spring and summer. It’s already a great price, but scroll to the bottom and you’ll get an extra discount with a code I’m going to share with you. 🙂

IMG_2165

I love the neckline on this because you can wear it as an off the shoulder top or keep it more centered depending on what you’re comfortable with.

IMG_2163IMG_2168

My ankle boots are a few years old from Target, but I found a very similar pair here.

IMG_2169

I’ve talked about these jeansbefore, but I have to do it again because they are THE best! They’re super soft jeggings and they genuinely are super soft. I have gone shopping for jeans since getting these and I never end up buying any because they aren’t as nice as this pair!

IMG_2161

I found this Anne Klein bag at Marshall’s, but I have linked a very similar one here.

Head over to Simply Blush and use code Lara15 for a discount. They have so many cute items, you will definitely find something you love!

Thanks so much for reading!

Winter to Spring Neutrals

I have to admit, I haven’t always had good luck at H&M. But, this sweater was definitely a great find. I’ve gotten so many compliments when I’ve worn it because of the color and how cozy it looks (and is). 🙂 It’s selling out pretty fast, but you can find similar ones here & here.

IMG_1816.jpeg

IMG_1808

This bag is less than $20 and is such a great color! It’s really good quality for the price, comes in 5 colors & has more pockets and a zipper inside. Win-win. 😉

You can find these jeans here. They’re currently on major sale and I love them! You can also find the distressed version of them here.

IMG_1812

IMG_1818.jpeg

I found these shoes at Old Navy years ago and they were on sale for $9! I haven’t seen any for quite that low since then haha, but you can find a similar pair here & here.

I really try to only share things that are affordable, so everything I’ve shared is well under $100 at the time of this post and most are under $50. I love clothes, but I also love traveling, going out to eat (hey, Shake Shack!) 😉 and there are always those student loans waiting for me, so it’ll stay affordable around here. 🙂

Thanks so much for reading! Hope you have a great weekend!

Casual Lace-up Sweater

Happy Friday! Hope you’ve all had a great week and have some fun plans for the weekend!

I’m excited to share this look with you because I have been loving this sweater! It’s so soft and has the cutest details on the sleeves. I did go up one size because I prefer things longer in the back, but your regular size would be fine too!

IMG_1573IMG_1567

IMG_1568

These jeans have been my favorite lately too! I have to give my husband all the credit for them because he picked them out himself and gave them to me for Christmas! They’re actually called “Super Soft Jeggings,” so he definitely made a good choice. 😉 You can find them here.

IMG_1570

While we were taking these pictures, it was SO windy! My hair was all over the place and my sweater seemed like it was taking flight. We were left with some really hilarious photos that made me want to do a bloopers blog post someday. I’m sure other bloggers can relate to some ridiculous photos, so someday I will definitely share some of those funny moments!

IMG_1572

This clutch is also a favorite and is $25! It tends to sell out a lot, but always comes back. 🙂

Pink Blush Floral Top

Hi! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s always hard to head back to work after a 3-day weekend, but I hope you enjoyed it. 🙂

I’m excited to share this floral top with you from Pink Blush. I have shared a few of their items before and I will definitely keep ordering from them. Everything I have received is great quality and true to size.

larakerrigann1.jpeg

I love that it’s floral, but the darker colors don’t make it too spring-y. It also comes in a really pretty burgundy.

IMG_1173

The back is hard to resist! Isn’t it so pretty? I’ve worn this a few times already and have gotten so many compliments on it! It’s so easy to throw on with any color jeans (I’ll definitely wear it in the spring with white jeans too) and any booties or even flats.

larakerrigann5

I went with these flat booties because we were headed to pick up our dog from his stay at “camp” 😉 and he is a little on the energetic side..to put it lightly ha! So heels are never a good idea when walking him!

Hope you love this top too! It’s $37 and is currently stocked in all sizes!

Loungewear

Happy New Year! I hope that 2018 has been good to you so far. It’s been on the cold (freezing) side lately, so I put together some of my favorite warm and cozy lounge items that will get you through the rest of the winter. Some will also be great layering pieces year-round!

IMG_6245

These leggings are the best I have ever had. My husband got me the navy pair for Christmas and I loved them so much that I got them in black too. They have pockets on the side of the leg that are perfect for holding your phone and would be great for holding keys if you’re a runner. They come in 5 colors and are currently on sale for under $25!

This hoodie is perfect to go over leggings because it’s on the longer side. It’s so soft and I love that it has zippers on each side so you can fit it to however you prefer. This is also currently on sale (for $35) and it comes in 6 colors to match all of your leggings. 🙂

IMG_6252

While I love the look of these leggings, I have to admit they aren’t quite as soft as the ones I mentioned earlier. They are pretty thick, though, so they’re great for cold weather and some of you may like them better, so I wanted to include them here. In my opinion, they run kind of small, so I would suggest going up a size.

Have fun browsing! Most of these items are on sale right now! Hope you find something you love!
