Basket Bags & Stripes

Red ruffle sleeve top with white jeans.
We've all been stuck wearing sweaters and coats for so long, that I'm basically at the point where I'm refusing to wear anything associated with winter anymore. Thankfully, really great spring tops & shoes are finally coming out and the trends are right up my alley!

Red is going to be a major color going into spring and summer, trust me. With everyone loving really feminine details (like ruffles), as well as embroidery and tassels/pom poms, red is an easy way to add a bold pop of color to pieces. 

Sometimes red is hard to wear. If you're on the fair side like I am, try wearing blue based reds to help not wash you out. I stick to the same rules with lipsticks! If you're on the more olive or tan side, warmer reds are going to be best. Next time you're shopping, expiriment between the two to find your best shade.

I'm also 110% obsessed with this basket bag. I had seen it on some of my favorite bloggers like Katey from Chronicles of Frivolity, Jacey from Damsel in Dior, and Julia from Gal Meets Glam and knew I had to have it. Take a look at the different ways that the gals and myself styled it. They're all SO different! I think it will definitely be my favorite bag for the spring & summer. 

On a more personal note, we signed our lease for our apartment in Philadelphia today! I'm so excited & can't wait to finally share pictures with you once we get there. 

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
