Jumpsuit: Adelyn Rae | Shoes: Steve Madden | Bag: Chanel; similar look for less here and here | Earrings: Dior; get the look for SO much less here 

Adelyn Rae’s new collection has really evolved this season, and I’m totally on board with the culotte trend!  Since it’s so hot in Florida, this trend feels so light and comfy in the heat of the spring and summer.  I have been loving so many of Adelyn Rae’s pieces because they have just the right amount of style and edge in one piece.  I love her dresses and jumpsuits.  I mean, who doesn’t love a one and done kind of outfit?!  I know I do!  It makes getting ready so easy and mindless.  With that being said, I always want to make sure my hair is on point!

This outfit makes me so happy bc it’s all 3 of my favorite colors in one outfit!  Yellow is one of my favorite colors to accessorize with in the spring and summer and I love my pops of turquoise!  These earrings are bold without weighing down your ears.  I think it’s so hard to find earrings that aren’t too heavy and that actually make a statement.  I love these and plan on wearing them with an all white look soon!  Check out my Instagram for other fun beaded earrings.

My romper is the perfect go to piece for summer!  Trade out your maxi dresses this summer and wear a jumpsuit to change it up.  They’re the perfect vacation outfit, date night look or you could glam it up and wear it to a cocktail party.  One of my friends is going to wear it to a rehearsal dinner.  So fun!!  It has just the right amount of support and control on top, but it does run a little small.  I would recommend sizing up if you’re in between sizes, or maybe it was all the delicious food I ate while on vacation haha!

Choker Top & Palazzo Pants

culottes, topshop, cropped top

Top: Topshop | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Sunglasses: Prada | Pants: Topshop | Bag: Chanel; get the look for less here and here | Lips: Smashbox ‘Safe Word’ | Shoes: Steve Madden | Cuff: Kendra Scott (love this cuff!) | Earrings: Kendra Scott

Ok y’all, I’m SO on board with this trend!  I ordered these pants a few weeks ago for my trips, and they’ve been such a fun and comfy pant and a great alternative to jeans.  I love that these are high waisted, so you can wear them with a ton of different tops.  I think they would be super cute with a tee tied up in a knot for a more casual look.  I wore them to work with my Gucci loafers and a button down shirt tied up in a knot.  I seriously felt like I had on pajamas!  Just some different ideas if you wanted to wear them with a non-cropped top.  Another way to update your look this season is to switch over to more of a mauve lip.  I wear this one by Smashbox every day!

Floral Flutter Sleeve 2 Piece Set

Top: Leith (under $50!) | Shorts with overlay: Leith | Bag: Valentino; get the look for less here | Sunnies: Prada | Heels: Steve Madden (under $90!) | Choker (wear this all the time): Cristabelle | Cuff: Kendra Scott (obsessed!!) | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Lips: Smashbox ‘Safe Word’ (my go to right now!) & NARS ‘Chelsea Girls 

I’m not sure where and when these shorts with an overlay come from, but I am obsesseeeedd!  Living in Florida, you almost have to wear shorts pretty much year round, so I am loving this trend!  You get to stay cool by having shorts on, but also be dressed up with the look of a skirt.  Genius!  I took this outfit to Vegas and wore it out to dinner one night.  It’s such a fun and playful little number!  If you didn’t want to wear the shorts with it, you could pair the top back to high waisted flare denim or skinnies.  If you wanted a top with a little more length, you could always tuck in a fitted tank like this one and throw a leather jacket or denim jacket (I wear this one all the time!) over top of it.

Recap of My Dallas Trip!

Wow!  It’s been a whirlwind of a week!  I love to travel, but holy cow, the past week has been non-freaking-stop.  I’m honestly so grateful that I was invited to be a part of such an amazing opportunity.  I flew to Dallas last Thursday for a blogger conference, where I got to meet (in person) sooo many amazing bloggers that I had already”met” on social media over the last year.   Our days were packed with fun, food, and lots of information.  It really is so crazy how fast our digital world is changing these days!  I thought I would share some pics from our trip and give you all of my outfit details.

I know I’ve mentioned the embroidery trend this season and I’m definitely on board with it!  I am obsessed with this denim jacket and love the details on it.  BlankNYC knows how to design great looking and amazing fitting jackets that look designer at a fraction of the cost!  I’m writing this blog post as I’m in Dallas right now and have had this jacket on all day.  It’s been freezing here (freezing = 60 degrees to me ha!) and I’m so glad I brought it with me!  I wore it paired with the navy culotte jumpsuit in my last blog post and it was perfect.  I love the light color denim for a summer jacket!  My lace up tee is also super cute paired back to high waisted denim!  Be sure to follow along on Snapchat (christian.blair) or InstaStories (christianblair_style) for all behind the scenes of my Dallas blogger trip.  It’s been so much fun networking with all of these girls and meeting the sweetest people!

My Favorite New Jumpsuit!

chelsea28, jumpsuit, sneakers, gucci, topknot, lana jewelry, celine sunglasses, metallic, bows

Jumpsuit: Chelsea28 | Bag: Gucci; similar here and here | Sneakers: Common Projects (these run a whole size large); similar look for less here and here | Lips: Smashbox ‘Safe Word’ Lipstick | Choker: Argento Vivo | Love Necklace: Lana | Sunnies: Céline

This jumpsuit is my favorite new piece in my closet!!  It has just the right amount of style and is so comfortable!  You can dress it up or down, but I felt like wearing it more street style with sneakers.  I’ve forgotten how comfy wider leg pants are, so I’ve decided to embrace the culotte trend!  If you think you’re too petite to wear something like this, disregard that thought.  I’m 5’2″, so really anyone can pull this off!  Here are a variety of heels that you could wear to dress it up, still be comfortable and look modern.  Click here (love these for a pop of color), here and here to see my alternate shoe picks!  The jumpsuit does run TTS, however my sneakers run a whole size big.  I’m normally a 6 shoe, and got a 35 in these.

Everyday Chic: Pink Ruffles, White Rips + Studded Sandals

joa, one shoulder top, white denim, celine micro luggage, valentino rockstud flip flops, celine sunglasses

Top: J.O.A. (under $70) | Denim: Topshop | Flip Flops: Valentino (fav summer shoe!!) | Bag: Céline; get the look for less here and here | Lipstick: Smashbox ‘Safe Word’; I put NARS ‘Chelsea Girls’ gloss over top of it (also a staple!) | Choker: Argento Vivo, sold out, but this one would be perfect also!

This top is such a fun top for the spring and summer!  I wore it to Palm Beach on our girls trip a couple weeks ago, and have also worn it with white cutoffs as the days have warmed up!  You could wear it with blue skinnies or flares depending on which look you want to go for!  It is on the shorter side, so just make sure you have high waisted denim on with it.  The top runs a little small, so if you’re in between sizes, I would suggest sizing up.  My flip flops have been a staple in my summer wardrobe since last year!  I wear them all the time!  They go with me from the pool to the beach, to running errands around town, or even out to a casual dinner.  They have the perfect amount of bling to jazz up any outfit!

Happy Easter Weekend!

Dress: Bardot | Heels: Christian Louboutin (my fav Loub!; not a bad heel height!); get the look for less here | Clutch: Valentino; get a similar look here | Necklaces: Lana here and here; get the look for less here | Sunnies: Céline; get the look for less here

I bought a dress during the holidays by this same brand and loved it so much!  When I saw this one, I knew it would be a great dress to have!  I used my black one so much and got so many compliments on the lace detailing  This one is basically the spring and summer version of my other one, and I love it.  This brand makes the prettiest dresses and prices them right.  I think they all look like they cost much more than they actually do.  My dress and pumps run TTS, just fyi.  What are your plans for Easter?
