Spring Time Blues
Last week my mom and I went and got coffee at one of my favorite spots in the surrounding Seattle area; Café Ladro! My favorite drink to get there (pictured below) is the caramel latte. I love that it always comes with really pretty art on the top made from the foam, and the perfect side is their almond croissant. Not light on calories haha but quite worth the indulgence every once and a while.
Since our weather here has been so off and on, it's sometimes hard to dress for what the day might throw at me, but this day was beautiful and sunny! I chose to wear denim because it doesn't really get HOT here until late July, so pairing a lighter top with denim is a great combination for those sunny, but not super warm days.
I found this top at Forever21 a few weeks ago and fell in love! Since I am blonde and have blue eyes, I really like wearing blue, but for some reason feel like I don't own much of it! I own and wear a lot of jeans, but for tops my closet is lacking a color I really like, so I decided I needed it! And for under $20 you really can't find anything more perfect!
The off the shoulder & cold shoulder trend are still going on strong, and have been since last Spring. I don't see this trend stopping any time soon, mainly because there are so many variations to each style!
I like that this specific top mixes a few different styles to create a more interesting look. I really love the button up front with a collar, and the ruffles along the front and sleeves add a really sweet feminine touch. Although I usually feel like stripes are very nautical & preppy, paired with lightly distressed denim and neutrals I think the look is much more casual.
These shoes are a few years old; a good Nordstrom find, however below I have linked a few others that are really similar. The brand Sofft, which you can find at Nordstrom & Nordstrom Rack, is super comfortable and have arch support built in to the soles of their shoes, which makes your feet feel like walking on clouds! I like this dark tan color because it looks great with both blues AND black. I could easily wear these with black denim or shorts, and create a totally different look!
Once again, lately I am all about finding pieces that can transition well into other seasons and that I can wear lots of different ways!
