My Instagram feed is currently full of the cutest spring/summer fashions from all sorts of retailers but one retailer I have not yet seen represented is my personal favorite, TJ Maxx.

Shoes for Spring: The Best of White Sneakers

Shoes for Spring: The Best of White Sneakers

The flowers have bloomed, the temperatures have risen, it is officially spring! I love spring and I especially love the cute new fashion that comes along with spring. This spring I am all heart eyes for all the sneakers, I love them. Specifically white sneakers. They are casual, comfortable and look great with shorts, jeans, or dresses.

When most people think of new spring shoes they normally think of sandals or open toe heels but there are plenty of occasions where a tennis shoe is most appropriate. Like if you are exploring a new city and plan on walking all day, a sneaker is the best option or if you are attending a festival in the middle of the desert, a sneaker is absolutely the best option!

White Sneakers
Shoes For Spring

I just realized that I use the words sneaker/ tennis shoe interchangeably. Am I the only one who does this? There are tons of words that I picked up from my time in the south that I did not use growing up in California, and I think sneaker might be one of those words.

Now that I live in Palm Springs, tennis shoe season is year round. The seasons in Palm Springs look like this: sweater weather, windy but warm, so hot you can’t go outside and absolutely perfect. Those are the four seasons. The good news is cute little white sneakers are perfect for all four of those seasons.

Okay, let’s get to my absolute favorite white sneakers

People are turned off by white sneakers because they get dirty much faster than their colored counterparts. When I purchase white sneakers, I immediately scotch guard the shoes and this little trick keeps white shoes clean and crisp for a very long time. If you have any secrets to keeping your white tennis shoes clean and white for a long time, I would love to hear them!

Happy Spring my friends!

Spring Break Outfits: Wardrobe & Packing List Must-Haves

Spring Break Outfits: Wardrobe & Packing List Must-Haves

It’s no secret that I am long past the age of Spring Break but that doesn’t stop me from regularly skimming the internet putting together spring break outfits and daydreaming about exotic vacation. Growing up, Spring Break meant to me that it was the first time we were taking the boat out for the year and then when college rolled around, I got myself into a fair amount of trouble in warm cities. Needless to say, I’ve always loved Spring Break.

While I have no official Spring Vacation planned, I am still very excited about warmer weather and cute spring fashion trends.

Spring Vacation Outfits

Luckily, I do not have to travel far for warm, spring break weather. My hometown, Palm Springs, is a town of endless sunshine and a very popular spring break destination. So I am just going to pretend that I am packing for a week-long staycation in Palm Springs. Below are the items I would be packing for my adult spring break.

Matching Sets

This is my absolute favorite spring fashion trend, its so easy and looks so put together!


High Rise Jeans

My #1 closet staple, a must in every suitcase I pack.


Fun Statement Earrings

Nothing spruces up an outfit more than a pair of bold, bright earrings.


Tie Front Tops

I absolute love a tie front top with a high rise jean, so cute!


Block Heels

I love a block heel! So comfortable but still nicely dress up an outfit.


Versatile Dresses

Dresses that can be worn to the pool and then dressed up for dinner are a must.


Hair Scarves

After a long day of being in the pool the last thing you want to do is worry about washing and styling your hair, add a cute little scarf to a ponytail and you are good to go!


Tons Of Fun Swimsuits

Because you can’t go on Spring Break without a few new, fun swimsuits!



Straw Purse

Add a straw purse to your outfit and instantly you are on vacation.


Sunglasses

Bust out all of the fun sunglasses, I mean it is Spring Break after all.


Tell me where you are going on your spring break! I would love to vicarously live through you!

Amazon Spring Fashion Haul

Amazon Spring Fashion Haul

The other day I had this great idea to do a Palm Springs inspired Amazon spring fashion haul, when the order came in all I wanted to do was take my fashion finds and go on an exotic vacation to a tropical island. So think of this haul less as Palm Springs and more Hawaiian spring break.

Spring Outfits 2019

I was on the search for fun colors, bold prints and lightweight material and ended up with some great pieces. Amazon can be a tricky place for clothes shopping but over the past year I have really gained a great understanding of how to find the best items on Amazon. For additional Amazon shopping tips, I blogged about it here.

I posted a try-on session on my Instagram Stories with most of these items, so if you are interested in more a more detailed look at any of the below items you will find those specifics there.

Spring Fashion Finds






Spring Swimsuits

Okay now lets get to the most imprtant part of this post, Swimsuits! I have so many swimsuits! I am kind of a swimsuit hoarder. During the cooler months, my husband and I get in the jaquzzi 2 – 3 times a week and in the summer we are in our pool about 5 – 6 times a week. We are water people!

High waisted swimsuits and One Piece Swimsuits are really trending this year and I am so excited about that! I love one piece swimsuits, I am one of those people who love to be active in the water and need something that I feel will keep me covered at all costs.





I really need to take myself on a grown up spring break. If you are going on an exciting spring vacation, please tell me about it below.
