Spring is coming and I am so excited! Spring and fall are my favorite seasons because they always feel so fresh and new. But spring gets me happier because I love seeing the flowers bloom and it gives me a chance to do some deep cleaning and turning over my closet to a new season. There’s a lot of things I am eyeing and trends popping up. Here’s what catches my eye.

Romper Maxi Dresses

I am 100% jumping on this trend because it’s my two favorite things combined. Usually when it starts getting warmer I gravitate more towards maxi dresses because I love the flowy feel they have. So having a romper maxi is perfect. Most don’t even look like a romper, just a cute dress so I am for sure stocking up.

So Many Caps

Dad hats are not going anywhere. I am okay with this because I love these hats. Most of my currently collection is from Disneyland though so I am looking to add some different types to my collection. One of my favorite YouTubers had a cute distressed Dodgers hat in one of her videos and I fell in love.

Bronzer Highlights

During spring and later on summer, I tend to take a really simple approach to my makeup. Thankfully, I’ve seen so many brands take out bronzer highlights, which combines bronzer with highlight so it’s the perfect combo. I love the idea of using one item that gives the hint of both and I could go without blush.

Heeled Sandals

I stand at a short 5′ 1, I always thought I was taller by two inches but I thought wrong. I’m obsessed with heeled booties because they add so much to an outfit even if it’s super casual. So for spring I am definitely getting heeled sandals because they’re really cute and I’m loving anything with heels lately.

How to Get Your Closet Ready for Spring

How to Get Your Closet Ready for Spring

With spring around the corner, it’s time to put away our winter coats and take out the fresh, easy threads. California is always in a weird weather limbo in the spring. It gets really cold in the mornings but really warm by midday. So I’m going to be sprucing up my closet and adding some new additions because it’s needed. I’m going to be sharing my favorite pieces from Uniqlo’s spring collection that I’m incorporating to my closet!

Lightwear Jeans

This is probably one of my favorite things about Uniqlo. I love jeans and I wear them until the heat is unbearable. Their spring collection offers ankle length boyfriend jeans, which are amazing! I honestly never thought about picking up a pair but I’m so glad I did. They’re roomy and really soft. Plus, they have a worn look, which has been my go to style lately. I’m usually a black skinny jean wearer, but these are so comfy that I’m incorporating them to my everyday look. They also have cute joggers in different colors, if that’s your thing!How to Get Your Closet Ready for Spring

Tops

I love a good longline top. Since spring is a lot warmer, I wanted to get something that wouldn’t be so heavy and bulky. I got this easy drape camisole top and I’m in love. I’m a bit self-conscious but when I tried on this top, it fit amazingly! The straps aren’t so thin and it’s long enough for my liking. I can easily dress it up or dress it down, so I love the versatility of it.

Outerwear

Layering is still good in the spring and I love good outerwear to top of an outfit. I’m seriously obsessed with anything longline so I was so happy to find this drape long jacket. It may look a bit heavy, but it is the lightest jacket ever. I can throw it on with everything, even as a last-minute addition and it looks cute and it’s a simple cover. I got it in black (I wear too much black) but they have two other colors and they’re so pretty!

Quick & Comfy Travel Outfits

Quick & Comfy Travel Outfits

If you must know, I’m a pretty lazy dresser. I’d rather be really comfy than look amazing. When it comes to traveling, I take the comfy factor extra serious. I hate the feeling of being constricted or that I have something bulky on a long trip. The thing about travel outfits is that sometimes it’s not something we would necessarily wear during our actual trip but I will be sharing some of my favorite travel pieces that are versatile. Travel smarter and a lot comfier!

Comfy Bottoms

Look, I know not everyone is on board with leggings but they really are amazing! They’re also perfect for flights. You can stretch and they’re soft enough that they low key feel like pajamas. If you’re going somewhere that you will be walking a lot, leggings are perfect for outfits! There’s many cute ones that don’t look like leggings, and jeggings are also a perfect alternative.


The Right Tops

I’m the kind of person that likes oversized shirts. Let me tell you, they’re the greatest tops I own. Pair this with leggings and I think you have the best travel outfit in the world. The right top is essential for a good travel outfit. If you wear something that needs you to keep pulling up or needs extra care, it’s just an extra worry you don’t need. Soft shirts are your go to.

If You’re Cold

I think airplanes are always too cold for me, regardless if it’s 100 degrees outside. This can go both ways. You can either bring a blanket, which is great because you can use it wherever you stay. But if that’s not your thing, a cute, oversized sweater (yes, I love oversized everything) it makes it so comfy and just makes every outfit chill but cute.

Easy Shoes

Getting through TSA is one of the most tedious things we have to do. It makes me so anxious having to take off tricky shoes and putting them back on then holding up the line. Seriously, this is one of my anxieties. I made it a point to travel with cute shoes that are easy to slip on. I actually have a comfy pair of low boots (couldn’t find them online) that are so easy to slip on, but having a good pair of sneakers does the trick too!

Denim in Winter

Denim in Winter

California is weird. We really don’t have harsh winters but this year it’s been raining often. Which is good considering there’s a drought still going on. But I felt like I didn’t adequately prepare for the temperature drops. Plus, so many stores are starting to switch to spring, which isn’t helping stay warm. So I did the only thing I could do and basically layered on everything I own.

Denim in Winter

Longline Denim Jacket: Similar | Beanie: Similar | Glasses: Forever 21 | Pullover: Similar | Necklace: The Giving Keys | Knee High Boots: Forever 21

I’m currently obsessed with my longline denim jacket, even though I know I have warmer options. But this has been my coolest purchase in a while and I never take it off. To make it work, I actually wore my Hillsong Young & Free band shirt and their spirit jersey because they’re cool and also oversized so they’re so comfy. I’ve been wearing my Giving Keys necklace nonstop because it’s a great conversation starter and I can mention that I got it for donating to one of my favorite charities. I finally found knee high boots that fit my shortness and surprisingly fit well with jeans, so I was happy.

Denim in Winter

I made it work for the most part. I’m sure other places with real winter would never choose a denim jacket as their source of warmth, but I had to improvise. Never thought I’d be wishing for warmer weather to come. It also didn’t help that I spent most of January sick. I’m bummed that I couldn’t enjoy the cold more, California is basically warm most of the year and I just wanted a small chance to wear fuzzy socks and cozy up in bed.

Makeup to Switch Your Routine

Makeup to Switch Your Routine

I’m rarely the type of person that switches up my makeup. I know what I like and I stick to it. In a way it’s good because it takes the guessing game out of choosing a color that fits or something that works with my skin type.

[Tweet “Need new makeup? Here’s some items to switch up your look!”]

Benefit Ka-brow Cream Gel Eyebrow 

I remember when this came out and it exploded everywhere but I was a faithful Anastasia girl. I had my brow whiz and had gotten the pot version. But it wasn’t until I was at Sephora on a makeupless day that I decided to try this and I fell in love. It makes eyebrows look feathery and clean and it’s much easier to use. It became my go to for eyebrows.

Maybelline Sensational Creamy Matte Lip

I’m not much of a solid lipstick person. For some reason it never stays on and it gets patchy. I won this particular lipstick from a giveaway and I’m so in love! I have the color clay crush which is a nude with a nice sheen and I’ve gotten so many compliments.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Out of every item, mascara is the one I least pay attention to. I already have somewhat long lashes and when I wear glasses they get in the way. Benefit’s Roller Lash gives me a great fill without being exaggerated. It also doesn’t flake or smear, it’s perfect.

Too Faced Cocoa Contour

I’m a newbie to contour so I was really nervous about trying it. The cocoa contour is super easy to use. The colors are arranged in order of use and it has a handy guide. The colors are pigmented enough but won’t leave you left with extreme marks. 

e.l.f. Only Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette

Eyeshadow still intimidates me. While everyone is using fancy palettes, I’m barely trying to figure out how to put it on. This e.l.f. palette is so perfect for me. It offers a lot of nude colors and is pigmented and easy to work with.
