Be sure to follow along Instagram later tonight because I’ve teamed up with Draper James for a fun giveaway 😉 I took these photos last week a couple of days before the snow storm. It was still way too cold to be out in sandals and a dress, but I couldn’t resist getting a few shots for the gram giveaway.
Draper James has a new collection out right now with “easy” pieces to wear this spring. And everything in that collection is under $100. I love that they’re including more casual outfits at affordable prices.
I picked out this utility jacket because of the amazing ruffle detailing on the sleeves. I’m totally adding this to my springtime jacket repertoire. It will look great with regular denim as well as white.
(Also, love the magnolia print on the lining. My parents had a giant magnolia tree in the backyard and it, very sadly, fell on the house during a hurricane last year. Luckily the house was fine, but the backyard will never look the same!!)
I’m also a major sucker for any kind of shirtdress. This one is particularly great because it doesn’t show wrinkles. (My only issue with shirtdresses in general!) A little belt around the waist gives it a flattering fit and there are so many colors in the print to accessorize with.
Normally I keep earrings super simple with diamond studs, but thought it’d be fun to wear pink drop earrings for an extra springy look.
And the SHOES. Guys. Okay, two things you need to know. 1) I am trying to buy so much less than year’s past. I have been doing great this year, only buying one sweater in February. (It’s such a relief to not have the pressure to keep buying new things all the time. Loving it!) The next thing I bought were these shoes (on sale right now). Cannot get enough of them. 2) I have been dealing with tendonitis in the ball of my foot so high heels are completely out of the picture for now. These low heels are the best– so much more comfortable, even if I didn’t have an injury to deal with!
