Recreate the Look: Brights and Khakis

I have been in love with this look from J. Crew from the minute I saw it:

Here are some (slightly) cheaper options to recreate this look:

The shoes were kinda hard to find, but I did my best! I also included some nude flats and pumps if you aren't really into the whole ankle-clobbering shoe look. (Side note: wouldn't this outfit also look really cute with a black and white flower pin?!)

If you can afford to get the real deal (oh, how I wish I were you!), here's a link to the pants: New Cafe Capris
The only similar sweater I could find was the one I already linked (on sale!). Here's the shoes: Loxley Buckle Peep Toes. Personally, I think the shoes are a bit overcomplicated, but that's just my style :)

A big trend for Spring that I've been seeing a lot is bright colors. So happy to see the return of these shades- as much as I love me some neutrals, it was starting to get a bit boring. Some pictures that have inspired me:

Stylist Saturday

If I could have any job in the world and be successful at it, I would definitely chooses to be a stylist. Unfortunately, there are way too many people that are way more talented than me for that to work out, so instead I like to play pretend-stylist on this blog :)
I am so excited for spring, and I can't wait to put together looks like this when the weather gets warmer!

I gave two options for this look. If you are like me and not quite ready to take on the maxi skirt (clue me in ladies- does the maxi skirt work for petite girls?), then you can stick with the good 'ol mini skirt and flat combo.

Wishful Wednesdays

I have a feeling Wishful Wednesdays are going to become the most prominent day on this blog- mostly because I always want new things! Hopefully this blog will help get rid of my constant urge to shop.

Under $100:
I especially love the black Gap bag and the two bottom neutral-colored bags are perfect for spring!

Under $200:
That Madewell satchel is to die for, as well as the sparkly bag, which would be the cutest accessory for a nighttime look or to add some fun to an everyday outfit. I tried to keep these under $300, but if you're looking for a more expensive bag, Michael Kors and Kate Spade are some of my favs :)
