Metal studs on clothing are an accessory that can add a slight punk factor. They seem to be very popular this year thanks to Valentino’s shoes and purses. Unfortunately for me, the coveted $900+ Rock Stud Pumps are not in my budget. These studs fit my budget. I also like the neutral color and peep toe feature. Being able to show off my pedicure is also a bonus. However, I really love the way they look cuffed with boyfriend jeans. I really am obsessed with boyfriend jeans. Here are a few of my favorites.

I love prints. Gingham is a very fun print to wear. It can be worn many ways. You usually see it worn alot in the winter, but it can be worn in Spring, too. My initial thought of gingham was that it looks like a picnic table. Not really a look I was going for. It comes in a variety of colors, but I am partial to the blue print. Gingham looks especially crisp when paired with white denim. I chose to pair it casually with these super cute TOMS. At least I know I will be ready for the 4th of July.

Happy First Day of Spring! Hello sunshine and bright colors! I could not resist buying these metallic flats from J.Crew when I saw that they were on sale. Plus, I had some reward money from J.Crew, so double bonus. These flats are actually my favorite! I have them in three other colors, and I still want more. With warmer weather here to stay in Florida, I thought this shirt was perfect with the palm trees. I also liked the cute “Tres Bien” saying. David and I just booked our second wedding anniversary trip. Paris will be one of our stops, so this shirt made me ready for Paris.

Though it is Spring, and it is all about bright fun colors, I have actually fallen in love with dark lipsticks and lip glosses. I know this is not the typical Spring palette of the usual pinks and nudes for lips, but I have been incorporating some darker shades into my daily rotation of pinks. I think it has a lot to do with my new darker hair color. It makes me feel vampy. Black is actually my natural hair color, but I wanted a change from the blonde. My hair is dyed black with dark blue ombred throughout. I wanted to go completely blue and be a mermaid, but I did not think my job would be thrilled with blue hair, so this was a fun compromise. These pictures were shot in mostly shade, so it is hard to see the blue in all its glory, but if you look really hard you can see that my hair isn’t really just black.

With spring right around the corner, neutral colors are on my radar. I have been slowly incorporating a neutral color palette into my winter wardrobe that would easily transition into spring like blush, gray, and oatmeal colors. These colors pair perfectly with winter white. I have been wanting a pair of white jeans for forever. However, I was a little skeptical that they were for me. I am terribly clumsy and also end up with ink all over my hands on a daily basis at work. Therefore, it was inevitable it would probably end up on my white jeans, too. Aside, from skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans are my favorite style of jeans. I love how they can be dressed up with heels and dressed down with flats. I was immediately sold when I found out these came in boyfriends and they were white. They were definitely worth the risk of ink spots. I am ink free so far.  I also have my eye on these and these to add to my white jeans collection.
