13 Springtime Essentials You Need In Your Wardrobe

13 Springtime Essentials You Need In Your Wardrobe

April showers bring May flowers and cute dresses!

April showers bring May flowers! Well, I may be getting ahead of myself but everyone is ready for some warm weather! As you begin to put away the sweaters and scarves for the year, here are some cute outfit pieces for springtime!

1. Rompers

Rompers are the best of both worlds during the warm weather months. It's got the flow of a dress but the convenience of shorts. It's a spring essential.

2. Pullovers

This can be for both males and females. Although we may be ready for the warm weather, we may have those cold spells that don't make you feel ready for shorts and a t-shirt. This is a perfect way to keep yourself warm during the unpredictable spring weather.

2. Jean jacket

Jean jackets are coming back in style and I am loving it! It is a perfect add-on to something that needs more.

3. Floral cardigan

This is bordering summer accessories but you never know what spring has to hold. It's flowy and offers a great coverup that isn't going to have you sweating.

4. White jeans

Whoever said that you had to wait for Memorial Day to wear white wasn't willing to break some rules. White is a staple of a brighter, radiant season to come. You better believe I will be wearing my white capri pants around way before May.

5. Off the shoulder shirts

When I was younger, I was always fascinated by the women who wore off-the-shoulder tops in movies. They just looked so graceful and elegant. Now they are back and I love love LOVE it.

6. Wedges

They are the perfect shoe to dress up any outfit. They offer so many colors and styles and the wedges prevent you from tripping so easily (if you are anything like me).

7. Denim button up

Dark denim, light denim, any sort of denim could dress up or dress down an outfit. For women or men, it's something to keep on in the house or out on the town.

8. Cotton v-neck t-shirt

A cotton t-shirt will get you far. V-necks are no different. Put them together and you have a super comfortable shirt that you could literally wear with anything. For those men who don't think they can pull it off, you can. Plus, they are super cheap at Target.

9. Maxi skirt

A maxi skirt is a modest alternative to a short dress (and a lot simpler too). They are really fun and flowy and if you are anything like me you may get cold in class because the A/C is blasting and your legs get cold. A maxi skirt will cover up and keep your legs warm.

10. Flowy pants

I don't know the name of these pants but they look super comfy and I want a pair! They are so much more comfortable in jeans and won't have you sweating on those hot summer days.

11. Dresses

Dresses are a girl's best friend (well, they are MY best friends). Bring out the bright colors in your wardrobe and show it off!

12. Rain boots

You always have to keep yourself prepared for the unpredictable spring season. Rain boots are essential. You can get tall or short boots but they are absolutely needed.

13. Bralettes

Bralettes are back! The warm season is among us and so are the light undergarments that dress up your wardrobe.

Although my jean jacket from "Limited Too" is long gone, I am ready to stock up my spring wardrobe and enjoy the season full of flowers.

10 Outfits Every College Girl Wears To Class At Least Once

You can thank me later.

It's happened on more than one occasion.

The occasion of being called out more than once for dressing down for class and by "down" I mean some of the haters we hate to love claiming that they can't see the shorts we're wearing under the oversized band tee on our way to class.

Contrary to popular belief, yes I'm not oblivious to how my choice of outfits for class tends to shift on the more comfortable side and yes, I am aware that it looks like I'm not wearing pants, I like it that way.

Every girl in college wears what they feel is comfortable enough to wear in a 2-hour lecture and these are my ideas of comfort.

1. The infamous oversized tee with Nike shorts.

I'll say it right now, I have a variety of assorted Soffee and Nike shorts that I pair with almost every oversized tee I own and it's my go-to for those 8 AM math lectures.

2. Oversized tee with leggings and riding boots.

Once the first red, yellow and orange leaf is found on campus grounds, you know you're about to see a swarm of college girls, like me, sporting riding boots in every shade of brown. Jeans optional.

3. Oversized tee with leggings and rain boots.

Once the first rainfall hits campus, you better believe you'll see this same 'fit paired with Hunter boots in almost every color.

4. The "I'm going to the gym right after class, I SWEAR" look.

Whether or not I have plans to go to the gym after class or not, I'm probably in my gym gear 4 times of the week and I'm not ashamed by it.

5. Jeans.

I've always had a hate/hate relationship with wearing jeans when I absolutely do not have to and here's why: they make my derriere completely disappear. When (and if) you catch me wearing jeans in lecture hall it's probably because someone paid me a large sum of money to do so.

6. Your boyfriend's flannel paired with... you guessed it, your favorite pair of leggings.

This is probably one of the many flannels I've stolen from my boyfriend and certainly not the last one. Paired with another favorite standard black leggings, you can't go wrong with this outfit to snooze in.

7. The baseball hat and quarter zip ensemble.

One of my all times favorites, you can't go wrong with a zipper up 3x too big for your body and a baseball hat you honestly forgot where you got it from. We also can't forget our infamous black leggings.

8. Your "walk of shame" outfit.

Now, this doesn't mean you roll up to Intro to Psychology wearing what you wore to the lacrosse mixer the night before, no. This is more of the outfit you so quickly had to throw on in a span of two minutes because you left so and so's apartment downtown an hour too late.

9. A v-neck.

Another one of my favorites.

10. Dresses (or anything even relatively formal).

Disclaimer: I personally would never come to class wearing this but gigantic kudos to cute a** girls that do decide to wear this because you look good.

'Sissy, Why is That Boy Wearing Makeup?'

June is time to celebrate equality.


This past weekend, I went to the mall with my family. It was just a normal family excursion, and I wanted to walk into Sephora to show my mom a perfume I liked. We go inside, and my mother and I drift away from my dad and 6 year old sister, Sierra. I showed her the perfume I thought smelled amazing (Roses de Chloé) and we look for my sister and father to exit the store. As soon as we leave, my little sister grabs my hand and asks, "Sissy, why is that boy wearing makeup?"

This was the first time my little sister has ever asked about anything like this, and I wanted to make sure I gave her an answer. I turned to her and said, "Sierra, sometimes there are boys who wear makeup, and girls who may dress like boys. People are allowed to wear what they want, it doesn't matter." Sierra looks up at me, says, "Oh okay," and that was the end of it.

Sharing this experience to say, HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!

So thankful to live in a country where all sexual orientations get a day to celebrate their love. That's what this world needs more of-- love. It shouldn't matter who it is, where they are from, the color on their skin, or their gender identity.

When Sierra was born, I always wondered when this conversation would come up. I wondered what I would say, how she would react to it, and how she would be exposed to it. Like I consistently preach, everything happens for a reason, and I'm glad Sierra was able to get exposure and receive an immediate answer. Love is love, and I will forever stand by that.
