The Perfect Almost Spring Out

I know this isn't the first time you have all seen this top-I have worn it a couple of times over the last week or so-it is just perfect for everyday wear that I can't get enough of it! 

This is the kind of top that would be great to wear to work, or even just out with the girls or even a date night. I wore this last weekend when we were in Virginia-it was an all day outfit. Literally, I had it on for about 12 hours and it was super comfortable. 

I would say that it is true to size as well-I'm wearing the large and it fits perfectly! I love the peplum detail of it as well. Peplum's can be tricky on me because if my curves, but this one drapes on my nicely so it's not super overwhelming! 

This jacket has also seen a lot of wear over the last several weeks-it has a good amount of stretch to it which makes it super comfortable. Sometimes jackets can feel really restricting to me, but this one doesn't! It comes in several colors too! I feel like it's a great transition jacket!

Key Items for the Season with Bon-Ton

This time of year is always tough when it comes to shopping for me. I don't want to invest in any more sweaters or cold weather items because spring is (hopefully) on the horizon, but I'm not into buying a ton of spring items just yet. If I can't wear it right away, I don't want it! 

So if I am not adding sweaters or spring/summer items to my wardrobe what am I adding? Transition pieces! Items that can be layered and worn now and when the temperatures start to rise. 

Cardigans have always been a go-to of mine. I really love to keep them casual, but I do love tossing them on over a dress from time to time to dress them up. Regardless of whether or not they are dressed up or down, it is such a great, layering go-to piece in my wardrobe! 

A black cardigan is such a great closet staple, and there are so many variations! While a basic boyfriend cardigan is a great for everyday, I love wearing one with a little bit of a twist, like the peplum hem on this cardigan! It is really lightweight so it's great for layering and transitioning into the warmer months. 

There is something so classic about pairing black and white together. When all else fails and you aren't sure what to wear, toss on a white tee, a pair of skinny jeans and an adorable cardigan

The style of this navy cardigan is also a favorite of mine. I am always draw to an open cardigan that drapes. I feel like it is super flattering for me. Like black, navy is such a classic color. I consider it a neutral and pair it with so many colors-white, gray, mustard, green and even red! 

These particular skinny jeans are really comfortable-they have a ton of stretch to them, which is important for me. I have got to have some stretch in the jeans I wear! 

I am a sucker for a good graphic tee. I find myself wearing them day to day. With denim jackets, cardigans, or by themselves. This camo tee is a great alternative to your everyday solid tees. I love the length of it-I prefer longer tees-and it is super soft. Just like a lightweight cardigan, it is perfect to wear now with a cozy sweater and a pair of boyfriend jeans, or with a pair of distressed denim shorts when it gets warmer! 

A good pair of jeans is another key item I like to have to transition from one season to the next. I personally prefer jeans over shorts, so I tend to wear jeans year round. I love the cuff of these jeans-they look cute with sneakers, but will look equally as cute with sandals! 

What are some of your key pieces you keep in your wardrobe to help transition you from one season to another? Cardigans, graphic tees and jeans are my go-to's but I would love to hear yours!

Winter to Spring Transition Dress

Tired of seeing this jacket yet? For your sake, hopefully not! I don't plan on hanging it up any time soon. It is such a versatile jacket and I have worn it so much already in the short time I've had it! 

I wore it last week with jeans and sneakers, this past weekend with an adorable floral top and mules, and then with this floral dress! I love the fact that I can dress it up and down and that it is such a versatile piece-something I look for when shopping! I love being able to invest in something that can be worn multiple ways! 

To me, this dress is a great transition piece. I got lucky wearing this yesterday and it wasn't terribly cold outside. I think it looks great as is-with a lightweight jacket (possibly even a moto jacket) and booties. When it gets a little bit warmer I think it would look super cute with a pair of wedges or sandals. While it is long sleeved, it is lightweight enough that you could get away with wearing it when the temps rise a bit! In fact, I think it would be the perfect Easter dress!

Mommy in Heels: Weekly #OOTD Roundup

TGIF! I can't decide if this week went fast, or if it was a slow week. I will say it was kind of nice because we had no plans at all in the evenings this week. It was nice to know I could come home from work and not have to worry about rushing anywhere!

I am also excited because I am working a half day today (parent teacher conferences for Ella), and I have off tomorrow, Saturday! We are headed to Virginia to see my cousin/best friend Betsy perform in Mamma Mia! I know I've chatted about her numerous times before on instagram-I am so excited to see her! 

Anyway, here are the outfits I wore this week-my daily, not making it to the blog outfits!

The Perfect Everyday Blouse with Loft

Have any of you had a chance to check out the new Loft Plus line yet? They have some really great pieces. Hopefully you saw my instastories last week where I shared a pretty indepth description of some of their pieces. Overall, I am in love! (you can still check out my try on sesh in my instastory highlights!). 

What I love about the collection is that there are pieces unique to the line, but that there are pieces similar to their straight sizes as well!

I tend to gravitate towards anything that has a mustard hue to it, this shirt being no exception. Not only do I love the color, but the pleated bell sleeve makes this blouse just a tad extra! I also have this in the floral print in a large, but I opted for the yellow in the XL-it was slightly more roomy in the chest and shoulders, making it so much more comfortable for me. 

I wore this outfit on Sunday for Ella's piano recital (she did amazing, BTW-so proud). I thought about wearing it with jeans and some flats, but I thought pairing it with my go-to black pants dressed it up a bit-perfect for her recital!
