Saturday Faves: The Perfect Spring Dress

If you're a college student like me, you know how amazing you feel when you slip on a dress in the morning. It's comfortable and you instantly look cute while wearing one article of clothing. What more could you want for a sunny, busy day?

My favorite spring dress is one that incorporates color - because spring is about being colorful - and fits perfectly because if it doesn't fit well, you don't feel good in it.

So my favorite dress of the moment is this cutout dress from Urban Outfitters.

The cutouts aren't drastic enough so that you can wear this dress to class or on a night out. The blue and red colors are also perfect for brightening anyone's day.

Pair the dress with a cardigan, like this one from H&M, for those mornings when it's a little chilly out. Slip on your favorite pair of flats, wedges, or sandals, and you're good to go for the rest of the day.

What would you pair with this dress?

Current Obsession: Color Blocking

Spring is full of color and this season's trends are amazing. One that I love a little bit more than the others currently? Color blocking. Specifically bold pinks and oranges together. Nothing else makes for a better combination and it's completely perfect for spring in that it adds that pop of color everyone enjoys.

So when I came across this amazing Marc by Marc Jacobs Satchel on Pinterest, I lovingly sighed at the sight of it.

 

Just thought I would share with my lovely readers who love a great color combination. Find the bag online here and check out the Marc Jacobs Pinterest to find more to swoon about.

Saturday Faves: Nail Polish

Don't you love when you take a glance down at your toes and see such a beautiful color painted on them? I am obsessed with nail polish and it takes a lot for me to refrain from buying each and every color I find.

This week, I'd like to introduce you to my current favorite: O.P.I. in Comet Loves Cupid.

O.P.I. nail polish in Comet Loves Cupid

I love all of O.P.I.'s nail polish but this one is just perfect at the moment.

It's a beautiful cherry red that's bright and sexy - perfect to pep up your toes for the upcoming spring weather (or to feel a little brighter in this currently dreary weather)!

What's your favorite color for your toes?

Saturday Faves: High/Low Skirts

Each Saturday, I'll be posting something new that I've found that I absolutely love.

If you have something that you've found that you just want to share, feel free to leave me a comment, tweet at me, or comment on Facebook to let me know! It just might be featured under my Saturday favs.

I've been obsessed with skirts lately. And not just any skirts, but maxi and high to low skirts. As I was out yesterday getting dinner, I walked by Urban Outfitters and spotted a beautiful high to low skirt that I can't wait to get my hands on. Frilled and with pleats, I melted inside. At $165, it's a little on the pricey side, especially for my college budget, but that won't stop me from admiring it.

Another skirt I loved was this patterned high to low one also from Urban Outfitters.

They're so versatile and can be worn with absolutely anything. Plus, they're just so chic.

What's your favorite type of skirt?

If you're more of a jean person... grab a pair of colored jeans for spring!

These purple Hudson's are lovely and they're on sale at Nordstrom right now!
