I hope I’ve given you some ideas on what to be shopping for this spring. Here’s the last outfit in this little spring collection.
This last look is for when the spring turns warmer because these little rompers are everywhere! While this one might be a little bare as presented on the model, I paired it with a cute little bralette that is meant to be another layer. I also topped it with a cardigan to cover up in that’s actually longer than the romper because of the fringe. This is a look that goes against what your mama taught you. But it’s a trend no less. I kept the accessories earthy and simple.
And those are my five looks for a Bohemian spring. I’ll be excited to see what you’ll be wearing!

This is a date night look. Pair a pretty little Bohemian dress with some flirty little add ons. I especially like these shoes that will go with many different looks. And the bag reminds me of something my grandmother would have carried. Don’t forget to make each wrist sparkle a little with some great bracelets.

Need a break from jeans but not ready yet for shorts? Don’t forget the easy style of the maxi skirt. Last year’s floppy hat will still get some wear this spring and so will those neutral boots that you wore all winter (since it’s still not quite sandal weather outside).

I realize my productivity with this blog has lapsed but I think things are starting to come round! I had a teething baby to wean and so many a day I’ve spent rocking a crabby baby. I know I’ll miss those days all too soon!
Now I’m seeing the light at the tunnel though, probably just in time for the kids to get out of school and create a whole new set of challenges. Meanwhile, let’s think about spring. My kiddos have been out of school for break this week and it has me thinking about new spring fashion trends!
Here’s day one-
Spring Forward 2016
The theme for my looks this week is definitely going to have a Bohemian influence because that look is everywhere! And I love it.
I cannot believe I’m saying this but guess what’s big for spring…chokers. Yes, it is 1992 and you’re pairing them with your bodysuit. Wha???? Yes chokers. You can blame this fashion trend from the boho look that is sweeping through stores and my closet. While I will be a part of this trend, I will reserve wearing my choker for junking trips and nights out dancing. I probably won’t be sporting it on the playground. But kudos to you if you do!
A few other trends in this look are the flowy wrap blouse, the peeptoe booties, and the round sunglasses (I love those!). Prints are big for spring. So be on the lookout for some new patterned tops when you’re out shopping!

My family decided to celebrate our 10 year anniversary with a Disney vacation. We have never been to Disney. And I’m trying to imagine how I’ll pack. It isn’t easy as the weather could be cool and rainy or hot and sunny! Not to mention we’ll be traveling through all different climates just to get there.
In my effort to pack for kid friendly activities, I’m breaking all of my own fashion rules!
Here are five of my own fashion faux pas!
1) Leggings, leggings, leggings
Mainly I will taking leggings because I figure I can be comfortable in them hot or cold. And lots of layers- sweatshirts, t-shirts and outfits that I would only wear when running around after kids in a theme park.
I’m basing my outfits on what shirts I have that are tunic length. Let’s be honest, not too many of us moms should really ever have our backside showing in leggings. Unless you are very, very confident…
2) A backpack
I will take a backpack to the park. But I just can’t quite sport one of my kids. This fun little boho backpack outta do the trick.
3) Mainly solid tees in a loose color family
I don’t anticipate many prints being packed while will make for some lackluster outfits. This and being constrained to tunic length tees is leaving me with a loose color family. But this is one destination that I feel I can make some exceptions.
4) Sneakers and flip-flops
I will also wear mainly slip on tennies and flip-flops, something I wouldn’t do at home. But I know we’ll be walking a ton and I need these feet to be comfortable!
5) Very little accessories
And for my accessories, earrings are about the extent of what I will pack. They are so small and hardly take up any room!
A few things that I couldn’t leave at home that might redeem an outfit- a scarf, a necklace and don’t forget the shades!
Next week, I’ll try to redeem myself by showing the different outfits one can create from this simple packing list!
I know I’ve been all over the board here these past few weeks but some weeks are like that, eh?
Here are a few pictures of my closet in process of transitioning for spring/summer-

Getting things organized!
Are you ready for spring in your closet?
