Top:  Willow & Clay (under $100!) | Denim: Frame Denim (fav jeans ever!) | Heels: Sam Edelman; sold out, very similar here and on sale under $100!| Scarf: Echo | Bag: Chanel Jumbo Timeless Classic; get the look for less here and here | Hat: Hinge (only $39!) | Necklace: Kendra Scott (you can wear this 3 different ways!) | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Ring: Nordstrom on sale 50% off under $20!) | Cuff: Express (on sale under $15!)

So, I obviously love this hat so much that I bought it in 2 colors.  For $39, it’s such a steal and looks so nice on!  It’s perfect for blocking the sun, and I would definitely wear it to the beach.  The tan and white version is super cute too!  My top fits true to size, however the straps were long on me.  Never be scared of a minor alteration like that.  It’s an easy fix and can make such a difference in how your clothes fit.  This top would also look adorable with high waisted denim and a jacket over top!  Style Tip: If you feel like you want to add a pop of color or pattern to your look, grab a scarf and tie it around your bag.  It can be the perfect pop, and then you can drape it over your shoulders if you happen to be cold indoors.

How I Like To Relax

Robe: Natori | Other home favorites not pictured: Diffuser: Diptyque | Diffuser Cartridge: Diptyque Baies | Candle: Diptyque | Slippers: Ugg | Sweatshirt: Make & Model | Lounge Pants: Make & Model | Face Mask: Glamglow | Blanket: Barefoot Dreams 

I don’t know if time just keeps going faster and faster or if I’m getting busier or if everyone is busier than ever these days.  As most of you know, I work full time and blog full time, so being able to relax is key for me.  I love soaking in a bath any chance I get.  I usually pour a glass of wine, light my candles, and use my soaking salts from Bee & You.  I am obsessed with anything lavender for my relaxation time.  The soaking salts from Bee & You are all natural with all organic ingredients and smell amazing!!  They have replaced chemical additives with bee pollen, essential oils and natural ingredients, which leaves your skin moisturized and healthy!  Also, the bee pollen is from the owner’s bee farm, which I think is so neat.  Use my code “Cbstyle15” at checkout to receive 15% off your order!

Top: Devlin; would also be super cute with jeans! | Skirt: Alice + Olivia | Heels: Saint Laurent; similar look here, here and here | Bag: Louis Vuitton; similar here and here | Sunnies: Quay Australia (only $60 and my summer fav!)

Give me all the yellow!  I have been living for yellow recently.  I don’t really wear it on my body, but I love it as an accent color for my outfits.  I get it, yellow is a hard color to wear, but if you wear it as an accent color, it’s not as scary.  It can be such a fun, happy color!  I loved wearing this outfit in Miami, and it would be perfect for a vacation outfit or a spring outfit in general!  The top would be adorable with jeans if you want to wear it more casually!

Street Style Dress for Day or Night!

Dress: 1. STATE | Earrings: BaubleBar (only $38!) | Shoes: Sam Edelman; sold out, but very similar style on sale here under $100!I would also dress it down for a more street style look and wear it with it with these sneakers, these or these! | Lips: Smashbox Liquid Lipstick| Bag: Chanel; get the look for less here, here and splurge here

Comfy dresses in the spring and summer are my favorite things to wear!  I know you must be thinking that this one doesn’t look that comfortable, but the mesh is actually super soft on the body and against your skin!  I sized down to an XXS for a more body con look, just for sizing reference.  If I wanted it slightly looser, I would have worn my true size.  I would suggest wearing a strapless bra just so you don’t have straps showing around your neckline.  To wear it more dressed up, wear it just like I’m showing it.  If you want a more casual/daytime look, wear it with the sneakers that I linked above.

How To Wear A Neutral Swimsuit

Bikini: Robin Piccone Top & Bottoms | Clutch: Steven by Steve Madden, this one is super cute too! | Cover Up: Hinge (only $35!) | Hoops: Argento Vivo (have worn these a ton!) | Flip Flops: Valentino (have also worn a ton!) ; get the look for less here and here | Beach/Pool Towel: Majorelle | Bracelets: here, here, here and here | Ring: Nordstrom (only $39!) | Hat: BP (only $22)

I know a neutral swimsuit could scare you a little and in all honesty, I definitely hesitated when I was trying it on.  Once I put it on and accessorized it, I realized the full potential.  The first key is to already have a base tan to be able to pull this color off.  My go to self tanner is by Loving Tan in the shade dark.  It only takes 2 hours for it to set in and then you can shower.  Most of the time, I put it on at night and sleep in it and then shower the next morning.  It really all depends what you have time for.   This one is so natural looking and doesn’t stain your clothes.

As far as the swimsuit goes, the fabrication of this suit is so soft and comfortable!  It felt amazing against my skin.  For $39, this coverup would go with anything!  I think it would be so cute with a bikini top and cutoffs as a pool party look.  Add in my bracelet stack and a fun pair of wedges and you’re ready to go.  If you’re looking for a new floppy hat this season, this one from Nordstrom in the BP department is fabulous and only $22!  If you’re thinking about splurging on a new pair of flip flops this season, grab these rockstuds!  I got them last year and love wearing them running around town, to the pool and with a ton of outfits.  You won’t be sorry they’re in your closet, I promise!

White Lace Dress with a Pop of Turquoise & Yellow!

Dress: Line & Dot | Earrings: Nordstrom | Bag: Chanel; get a similar look here (so cute!) and here | Shoes: Steve Madden | Cuff: Express (under $20!) | Sunnies: Céline

Give me all the color this spring!!  I just discovered this new line and have loved everything I’ve gotten so far!  It’s reasonably priced and the fit is amazing!  I bought this top a few weeks ago and have already worn it a ton!  I wore the dress in Miami last week and really loved it.  Many people ask if petite girls can wear this length and I definitely think so.  I’m 5’2″ and the key is wearing a shoe that elongates your legs such as what I have on (obsessed with these clear shoes by the way!) or a nude sandal or pump. The ankle strap still works because it’s transparent and doesn’t chop up my legs and compete with the length of my dress.  Don’t be afraid to add pops or color with all white or you can keep it more simple with a nude or blush pink bag.
