5 Spring Must Haves

Spring has sprung. And of course with every new season, comes some seasonal must haves.

Fancy Pants

Palazzo pants. Flare pants. And paper bag pants. Oh my! Fancy pants are definitely trending this Spring, that’s for sure. New York Fashion Week models, celebs, and just about women everywhere are embracing the aesthetic of vibrant, free flowing pants. Pair the fabulous bottoms with a graphic tee or formal blouse. Slide on a pair of kicks or decked out heels. The fancy pants possibilities are endless. Pictured below: bold black paper bag pants from American Eagle.

Espadrilles

Slide on a pair of these glam boho shoes The textured ballet flats are perfect to pair with any outfit. Maybe boyfriend jeans and a graphic tee, or a denim skirt or a printed off the shoulder blouse. The foot-friendly kicks come in a variety of styles such as laced and thick wedges. Sleek. Structured. Sassy. Pictured below: fuchsia espadrille wedge sandals from DSW.

Tee Shirt Dress

Cozy. Comfy. Sassy. Stylish. And super easy. I am so obsessed with tee shirt dresses this season. They look adorable with high tops or super sleek Nike kicks. Dress em’ up or dress em’ down. Tee shirt dresses are the one stop look that are great for any occasion. Pictured below: heather grey wrap tee shirt dress from Misguided.

Hey friends! It was a pretty jam-packed week between work and the pressure of college weighing me down! I began the fourth quarter at school as well, only a few more months until graduation!!

Law of Attraction: Girl Boss Habits

Hi my loves! How is everyone’s week going!? Mine, a bit slow. Well, no… very slow!! I can’t believe it’s ONLY Wednesday!

So gather round my girl boss squad and read some rad girl boss habits! I composed this list by reading up on other girl boss’s routines and tips, while implementing a few of mine own of course!!

But, before I get too far ahead of myself, let’s review. The Law of Attraction (LOA) is the belief that like attracts like! Positive thoughts translate into a positive and healthy lifestyle. What you believe you become. Visualization is key. Picture your goals and dreams and make them a reality. So let’s get to it!! As always, thanks so much for reading!

Riverside High School Production of Footloose Review

Imagine living in a town that deemed dancing a crime. Yup. No popping or locking. No shimmy, and certainly no shaking. In the small Midwestern town, Bomont, a righteous minister bans the art of dance. However, when a rad Chicago teen enters this monotonous world, he enlightens his classmates with a new perspective. Though his transition from city life is a tad bumpy, he not only finds friends who are also fed up with the restricted Midwestern lifestyle, but love as well.
