By the looks of things here on the blog, spring has sprung, however, the reality of this Indiana living girl is that winter is still in full swing and this week it came in the form of floods and more floods. Hence the rainboots above. Because venturing out was few and far in between, it gave me a chance to try on all of the spring new arrivals that have been showing up around this joint. From wedges to floral prints, white jeans and Easter inspired color palettes, my wardrobe is getting lighter and brighter and I am not the least bit mad about it.
For this week’s roundup, I’m trying something new by adding the “where to wear” feature underneath each photo. A smart reader suggested I offer up ideas on where to actually wear these assembled looks so I took the challenge and am offering a few ideas for each outfit! Hopefully, you find it helpful and are able to justify why you NEED it oh so much #wink.
Before we dive in, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin!

Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
