Spring is almost here! All of us North Carolinian’s got an early taste of the warm weather last week which left me inspired to do a little spring cleaning. I’ve spent a lot of time staring down my closet and transitioning my winter wardrobe to spring outfits. With warmer weather right around the corner it’s time of all of us to pep up our closet for every possible activity, like park strolls, boozy brunches and the beginning of wedding season. While you might think you have all the essentials, I’m betting you’re missing a few (or by reading this you just need a reason to buy something new ;D ) Okay, lets get started.
I’m jumping straight into accessories here because hats are everything right now! There is something about a stylish hat that takes an ordinary outfit to the next level. I recently did some redecorating and now have an official dedicated “hat wall.” I think having a versatile collection are something every girl needs in her wardrobe. It adds a little more statement to your outfit, and other times hair can be too difficult to make look presentable. This is one of the many reasons we’re loving hats for spring, summer, fall – any time of year!

Spring style always makes me think feminine – from romantic silhouettes to lace detailing and scalloped hems with the feminine floral print.
What I love about a maxi floral dress is it’s versatility.
Feeling fancy? Slap on on some pumps or wedges.
Edgy? Black bootie it up.
Lazy but comfortable?
