Hooray, spring has finally sprung!  Time to break out those white jeans, that spring top you've been dying to wear, paint those toes and throw on those sandals!

Seersucker Pants

Seesucker Pants

slouchy shirt
cross shoes
tote bag

If you read Sunday's post then you know that I love me some eyelet. Well, I also love me some seersucker. These pants from Lands End Canvas are so sweet (even sweeter if you roll them). Did you notice how I broke those old fashion rules and put a floral shoe with the striped pants? You can do it girls, you really can!  You could also throw on a statement necklace with this look, but I was feeling a little more minimalistic and decided to keep it simple.  Sometimes simple is better.

Black and White for Spring

Black and White for Spring

short sleeve shirt
eyelet shorts
 Stella & Dot stella dot necklace
Black and white are hot, hot, hot for Spring.  Not to mention eyelet and peplum, so why not combine all three?!  I love the look of eyelet shorts, eyelet anything, really. I've been on the hunt for a pair of eyelet shorts for  myself, acutally.  I've tried on a few pairs (not this one from Macy's, though) but haven't found just the right ones, yet.  I also continue to search high and low for a peplum top, but again, I'm kind of fussy, and the fit has be to just perfect. So far I have struck out.  Peplum can be tricky, so it needs to be well tailored and hit at just the right spot to be flatting.  If you don't have curves, no problemo, you're a shoe in.  But, if you do, proceed with caution! 

The moral of the story is, we all have issues finding to clothes to fit well. But, don't settle girls! Otherwise, that piece will end up on the item you wore a couple times, but don't love list and the next time I come for a consult we'll be looking at that piece saying it's time to go! =)

Plus Size for Spring

Plus Size for Spring

scoop neck dress
metallic shoes
summer handbag
chandelier earrings
leopard jewelry

Plus size gals, no need to be afraid of a dress with a waist! This is a great way to give your body definition and shape.  Baggy, loose clothing quite often just makes you look bigger.  It's all about learning to dress your body shape.  Not sure what your body shape is and what types of clothing looks best on you?  I'm here to help, that's my specialty! Email at to schedule a consult. 

Also, don't forget that Mother's Day is right around the corner.  Real Life. Real Style gift certificates are the perfect gift for yourself or that special mom in your life. You can purchase a one hour wardrobe consult, a day of personal shopping or anything in between.  I'll deliver it right to your door, gift wrapped and all.

Navy, Lavender & Kicks

Navy, Lavender & Kicks

skinny fit jeans
Stella & Dot

The weather here in West Michigan is proving very difficult to dress for Spring!  I'm totally over wearing boots, but my toes turn into icicles when I wear flats (not to mention sopping wet from all the rain we've been having).  A fun pair of kicks, like these polka dot Keds is the perfect solution!  I'm a sucker for a pair of Keds and there sure are some cute ones out this Spring.  Taylor Swift has an adorable line of her own over at Kohl's and you can find plenty of knock offs that are equally adorable, at half the price. Think Target!   =)

I hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend.  It's going to be cold and dreary in my neck of the woods, but we'll make the best of it.  Spring will come sooner or later!

Brights for Spring

pullover sweater
skinny fit jeans
wedge pumps

pave bracelet
stud earrings

Spring is here, time to take a risk and add some color to your wardrobe!  Don't be shy, I promise they won't bite.  Experiment a little with mixing and matching colors, like this color block sweater from Target and pink skinny jeans from Gap. Anchor it with neutral accessories and you'll be looking totally cool this Spring.
