White Florals

White Florals // With Love, AmandaT-minus one week until we are in China for two and half weeks! I’ll also be trading in my spring outfits for full on summer attire, ready for the absurd heat and humidity that is currently in motion in Asia. I’ve been complaining that I’m tired of jeans and long sleeves but I’m also not sure I’m ready for the heat in China. Today, though, let’s talk about the outfit in play in this post. I want to first start off with the denim, these high-waisted jeans were found for a steal from the Gap and I’m loving the fit! I raved about high-waisted denim when I bought a pair of Levi’s Wedgie Jeans (read more about them here) but this pair is coming in at a very close second and you just can’t beat the sale price at $41.99! In preparation for the heat in China I also recently bought this easy-breezy floral keyhole top from Nordstrom (also check out this one too). Since it’s still a bit too chilly to run around outside in just a tank I added a favorite white blazer of mine on top (similar here and here).

Blush Pink Trench

Blush Pink Trench Coat // With Love, AmandaLast week I received an early birthday present from my mom and sister, this beautiful blush pink Michael Kors trench coat. I’ve been wanting to add a pink trench to my outerwear collection to make my spring outfits more versatile. I think its safe to say you’ll be seeing a lot more of this jacket this season. This one was found at TJ Maxx but I’m also loving this one from Asos and this one from French Connection. In my opinion, the blush pink trench is a definite must-have for any outfit this spring. See more of my favorite picks below.

Spring Floral Maxi Dress

Spring Maxi Dress // With Love, AmandaI was so excited to finally break out a spring maxi dress last weekend when we had a lovely sunny day here. This is one that was a hand-me-down from my mom (similar here and here) as it was too long of a dress for her so lucky me being tall enough for it to fit perfectly! In addition to the pretty floral prints I also am loving the key hole, which gives it a little some extra. Since it was still a bit chilly out I paired this dress with a lightweight blazer which was also featured here paired high-waisted denim. Adding a blazer (check out this one) on top of this creates a nice office-chic look. I’ve rounded up a few other of my favorite floral maxi dresses below, happy shopping!

Off-The-Shoulder Blouse

Off-the-shoulder Blouse // With Love, AmandaNow that it’s officially spring I decided it is time break out the off-the-shoulder blouse. I’ve had this one which I found at LOFT’s end of summer sale last season but haven’t had nice enough weather to wear it until now. Luckily this weekend provided two sunny days to break up all the recent rain. If you go to almost any fashion blog you’ll see the off-the-shoulder blouse is definitely having a big moment. Mine from LOFT is sold out now but I’ve found several similar options here, here and here – all of which I really love. Keep reading below to see more from this look.

Blush Pink Midi Skirt

Blush Pink Pleated Skirt

I’m fairly certain we are permanently stuck in winter here in Seattle but I’m more than ready to start dressing like it’s spring. Because it was cold and raining pretty heavily we decided to take a trip to the Volunteer Park Conservatory for photos but an added bonus included warmer temps to keep the plants thriving. The tropical plants room was glorious as it was the warmest and even had a little bit of humidity, and for a moment it felt like I was somewhere else. To the outfit details: I recently bought this blush pink midi skirt from ASOS and absolutely love it. I paired it with a old lace top from the LOFT (similar here and here). One of my newest favorite pieces of jewelry are these BaubleBar pink drop earrings, they’re a perfect statement piece for dressing up any outfit (scroll to the next image to see them up-close).
