Don’t worry – I know spring is all we can think about so what gives? Go on and go full on light, airy and sweet this spring and summer. Pastels, metallics and plenty of white are still having their moments in the sun. If you are like me, you are always looking for what is coming around the bend. I expressed my total love affair (ok borderline obsession) with navy here. My thing for navy and its status as an important color du jour are both still going strong. This year gorgeous navy is getting some rich and moody friends. Look for deep merlot, olive green, saturated true reds, and rich deep teals as a couple of the key colors for this year. Yummy camel toned leather items will also be great pops of color and texture.
Spring is right around the corner! It won’t be much longer before we’re all outside, soaking up some sunshine and playing in the sand. For the few weeks of dreariness we have left, brighten things up with an at-home mani pedi. Show off some adorably painted fingers and toes this spring with these cute ideas!
I’ve always wanted to try a reverse french tip. For a good tutorial, look no further than this blue and gold beauty from The Lacquer Log. Simple and elegant, this color palette makes for timeless sophistication.
See you back here next week!
Happy Valentine’s Day (a day early)! If you’re like me, you’ve already spent way too much time thinking about what you want to wear for your special night–as well as the thought that red is really not your color. But I’m here to prove you wrong! I’ve rounded up a list of some outstanding outfits that all revolve around bold reds!
Every woman needs a good blazer. Dress up a casual outfit with a bright red blazer like this one on Wendy’s Lookbook for a look that grabs the attention of everyone nearby. Wear along with a cute pair of pumps and some dark skinny jeans and you’ll be looking stunning all night long.
I like the simplicity of this red top I spotted on Lunchpails and Lipstick. This statement shirt is the perfect piece for the women out there who need a little less complication in their lives. Plus side: you’ll look gorgeous.
I love this red skirt on Pink Peonies. Find a matching hue of red lipstick and you’re in business. The best part about this flawless ensemble? It’ll go with almost any top you already have in your closet!
Already have your Valentine’s Day outfit picked out but looking to add a cute twist? These heart elbow patches I found scrolling through A Southern Drawl take this sweater from great to glamorous! And that tulle skirt? Adorable.
And lastly, red and pink are BFFs in the color world. While two bright colors might seem intimidating, don’t be scared off! This cute outfit on Gal Meets Glam takes the best of both worlds and puts them into one fabulous outfit! You’ll look amazing, don’t worry.
Have a happy happy Valentine’s Day, Style Spotters! Whether you’re out with you sweetie or rocking it with your girlfriends for a fun night on the town, look amazing doing it!
February! It’s that time of year again, folks. Amid all the flowers, fancy dinner dates, candy hearts and cards, it’s easy to get lost in the formalities of Valentine’s Day–and forget that the best way to spend it is loving on all those special people in your life. To help you celebrate, I found some awesome DIY ideas to make this year’s day of love the sweetest one yet.
As a hopeless romantic, I actually love reading through all of the cheesy Hallmark cards. Even so, I can never seem to find the perfect one. This year, stop worrying about finding a card that encapsulates all you want to say to your special someone–make your own instead. Look at these cute DIY card ideas from Delightfully, Kristi for some inspiration!
If you want to spruce up your space this Valentine’s Day, take a look at this gorgeous star burst wall art from Lia Griffith. Super easy, super chic, and pretty enough to keep up all year if you want, this bright addition is sure to surprise your sweetie!
And finally, finding the perfect gift for your special someone is only half the battle–add a whole new “WOW” factor with these DIY gift wrap tutorials I found on The House That Lars Built. Love, love, love it!
Enjoy the week! If you try any of these cuties, I’d love to hear how they turn out!
I’ve always been useless when it came to quick sewing fixes for my overflowing closet–I can sew sloppy, haphazard stitches and that’s about it. With winter transitioning into spring in the next few months, I pulled together some cute spring sewing tutorials to help you look fabulous–and keep some money in your pocket doing it.
I am absolutely in love with this adorable color block tank dress on Sweet Verbena. Worn by itself, or paired with a cute cardigan and some strappy heels, this cute outfit will turn heads wherever you go!
I never really understood why people put buttons on the backs of shirts–but I still can’t get enough of the look! Learn how to make your own buttoned boxy top on Cotton and Curls for this classic look.
Remember that cardigan I mentioned earlier? Take a look at this sequin cardi DIY I found on Me Sew Crazy. If you visit the blog often, you know I have an affinity for anything sparkly. The best part? You can pair this jazzy jacket with jeans, dresses and everything in between.
Let’s face it–leggings are in the for the long haul. Give your legs some extra love with this grown-up legging tutorial on I Still Love You. While horizontal stripes look good on a select few, the rest of us can experiment with whatever neutral or crazy patterns we please!
Good luck and happy sewing!

Hello again! I hope the week has treated you all well–I know I’m ready for a nice, long relaxing weekend. Whether you’re going to spend it inside curled up on the couch or out and about, enjoy it! This week I came across a few amazing home photos that I wanted to share. Get ready for some major home envy.
If you’re more interested in dark and mysterious, check out this boys’ room decor from The Hunted Interior. The window brings in enough natural light to brighten up the room, but the dark paint keeps it closed and cozy.
Take care, friends! See you next week.
