9 cute and chic outfits for Spring // Simple and easy outfits for Spring // Spring Outfit Inspiration // If there is one thing that has remained consistent in Indiana the past week [or month] it’s rain. Non-stop, every day rain. We’re talking the frizzy hair, sweatpants and sweatshirts, doing nothing on the couch type of rain. I can appreciate a good rainy day, what I can’t appreciate is a good 34 days of rain. While I’ve tried to not let it put a damper on my outfit selection [that was totally a rainy day pun] it has. While you see a lot of outfits below that will indicate differently, it’s the last outfit in this lineup that was worn the most often. Regardless of your forecast situation, there should be an outfit in here that can work for whatever the weather.

Before we get into all of the outfits, 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 [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] 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!

Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.
