hi, friends!

dang, it’s already march! ¬†y’all know what they say about this month….it comes in like a lion, and out like a lamb (or whatever). ¬†on wednesday, there was a tornado in nashville and the surrounding areas, which honestly came as no surprise considering the up-and-down weather we’ve been having. ¬†all in all, that can make getting dressed a little challenging. ¬†this is the time of year when all the really great spring product rolls out, so i think it’s time to go ahead and start transitioning your wardrobe slowly and to start buying the new pieces you want to add.

if you don’t already have a really pretty, feminine top in your arsenal, now’s the time to snag one. ¬†bell sleeves like this one make it feel feminine boho, but this trend doesn’t have to be. ¬†ruffles, bows, embroidery, tiers – they’re all making a big statement this spring. ¬†you’ll definitely see a lot of these blouses in menswear shirting fabrics – a striped poplin like you’d typically see for a men’s dress shirt, for example, might have a tiered sleeve or ruffled detailing. ¬†this is a huge trend for spring that i’ve been scouting, although i haven’t quite found the right piece yet. ¬†for me this trend has the makings of something that can get tired quickly, so i want to make sure that i’m in love with the item i ultimately choose so i get more than just one season out of it.

i’m really making a concerted effort to minimize the amount of clothes i’m buying right now. ¬†i’ve got so much and am steadily selling things or donating them, and i’m also trying to acquire a lot less. ¬†my rule is that it has to be love at first sight, and i need to be still thinking about it a week later! ¬†the shirt i’m wearing this week was one i had in my free people cart for several months. ¬†it’s classic free people but also pretty on-trend, without being too dramatically so. ¬†i styled it with some madewell flares, a really cute new bandana i got (i’m obsessed with the color; i think it looks amazing with white and blue) and a pretty hat for a laid-back yet girly outfit that i still feel like myself in!

also, i’m really excited to show y’all some pieces i was sent via¬†shop moonstone magic! ¬†y’all know that moonstone is among my favorite stones (the others being labradorite and turquoise, duh), but did you know that moonstone is also called the traveler’s stone? ¬†it’s said to protect those who travel by the light of the moon or by water. ¬†it’s also said to have healing powers and can enhance your intuition. ¬†not to mention the fact that it’s just so pretty and feminine. ¬†i hope y’all like the beautiful photos lauren took of the pieces, and you should definitely check out their other jewelry!
