It’s gettin hot over here. I know the rest of the country probably isn’t experiencing this spring warmth that us Southerners are having, but hey I am here for it. This awkward transition season always has me questioning what’s “ok” for me to wear.. jeans? Yeah I guess so. White? Obvi (I never follow that rule because white is my favorite color). Straw wedges? Hmmmmmm. Velvet tops? EH idk. Today I’m gonna break a few rules and look good while doin em.
Let me just start with an update on my life: I am broke and I am a shopaholic. There’s too many good sales going on right now for amazing winter pieces I can stock up on for next year and waayyy too many beautiful spring styles coming out. I can’t help myself! When I laid my eyes on these beautiful, pink, straw wedges I knew I had to have them. I’ll admit, they’re pricey but so worth it! If you wanna snag last years colors here’s a few on sale in limited sizes (here, here and here).
I wanted to do something a little fun with this outfit so I paired a velvet cami (which I am in love with btw please go get yourself one you will wear it ALL THE TIME), my favorite distressed jeans (on sale right now), and a statement belt. The end result: a wintery/springy basic but super put together look.
Velvet camis go with almost anything! You could easily style this with some fun printed pants and platforms, a simple skirt, or even white jeans to bring it into spring.
Is there any winter pieces into your closet you wish that you could style into the spring? Comment down below and let’s figure out some new ways to rock em!
To all my Southern gals, I feel you. While everyone else is buying sweaters and boots and leggings and drinking PSLs (can you believe I’ve never had one of those) we’re still over here braving the heat. Yeah, yesterday it was 80 degrees over here in Louisiana (cue the ugh).
I’m getting pumped for fall and wanting to incorporate some fall pieces into my wardrobe but it’s a real ordeal let me tell ya.
So I figured I’d start a little series. It’ll feature three key pieces you need for fall and I’ll show ya how to transition them. With this heat it’s tough, but we’ll figure it out! Let’s get into part one of three!
fun brunette tee (MY ALL TIME FAVORITE SHIRT EVER) // military jacket (a few seasons ago, but I’m linking similar) // jean shorts // platform sneakers // puff ball earrings // sunglasses // cross body bag
I wish y’all could’ve seen me shooting this #ootd I was DRIPPING in sweat. This heat is not funny y’all. It’s already nearing the end of September and I just wish we could get some sort of chill in the air… wishful thinking I know.
Given the heat, I decided to pair a pretty summery/warm weather outfit with a military jacket for some #fallfeels. The boxy military jacket is such a strong contrast to my fun earrings and sunglasses but somehow it works. I threw on my favorite tee-shirt of all time under it and some jean shorts (here we go again). My Superegas are making their debut on LGIP finally!! I had been wanting to scoop a pair for so long and I recently caved in. I absolutely love them. I’m still breaking them in, but I have a feeling they’ll be super-duper comfy once I do.
If you’re not into the whole shorts thing, I would pair this jacket with a skirt and tee combo too.
Key piece: the military jacket
The military jacket is a staple in my closet. I wear it with literally anything and everything. It’s so amazing to layer with other pieces. When the temps drop (not much in Southern LA but hey), I’ll layer a vest underneath this bad boy for extra warmth! Price points vary, but I am sure you will be able to find a jacket in your price range. I’m going to link a bunch of options below for y’all! Get yourself one — I know you will wear the heck out of it.
