the crossbody

The crossbody is the “it” bag this season, and it’s no wonder why this bag is a musthave. The crossbody bag just may be the most practical handbag ever, since it can be worn hands-free, can be dressed up or down, and be worn day into night. It’s an ideal bag for summer travel, and lots of crossbody’s this season can transition into a clutch {by tucking in the strap} for dressier evening wear, too! I also love the look of a crossbody bag worn simply hanging on one shoulder, to change up the look. {See this look pictured below.}

Here’s how I have been wearing crossbody’s lately…can you tell I am obsessed?! {Click on each picture to shop the bag.}

P.S. I am currently in Dallas at the Reward Style Conference, which is a invite-only conference for 200 of the top fashion bloggers in the world. I’ll be sharing updates and outfits from my trip this weekend over on my Instagram page at @laurenlefevre. Follow along with me there, and also follow the hashtag #rStheCon for lots of style inspiration from all the bloggers there with me. I’ll be recapping my conference looks back here on the blog in the next two weeks, so stay tuned…!

Spring trends always give us an abundance of floral prints for our wardrobes.  Flower patterns are a perfect way to feel feminine and playful with gorgeous colors and flirty silhouettes.  This Anthropologie faux wrap blouse is the perfect mix of flirty with a touch of comfort.  It’s a perfect top to throw on with skinny jeans and heels or a drapey short for those warm summer months.

Date nights can come few and far between for us moms, so when a night off does come along, the last thing you want to do is spend hours worrying about what to wear.  The perfect solution for your night on the town is black, white, and a pop of color.

This split neck top from Nordstrom is such a versatile piece.  It can dress up a pair of jeans with fun jewels or be worn casual with shorts and flat sandals.  With a price tag of $48, it’s a great top to order in a few colors and prints.

This dress is the kind of dress that you want to live in during warm weather. It’s breezy and comfortable, and can be worn pretty much anywhere, with flats or heels, dressed up or down. Every girl needs a couple of dresses like this in their closet!

Stylishly yours,

Today I’m making a case for why every girl should own a little coral dress.

Apparently, I’m also making a case for why every girl should get a spray tan before taking blog photos.

Ahem.

Seriously, though, coral dresses are the perfect alternative to the LBD during the spring and summer months.  They feel super fresh, plus, coral is generally great on most non-pasty skin tones.

Now, for the evidence:

I love popping the coral with a little green…but don’t be crazy, or you’ll look like a walking watermelon. Just saying.

I threw on some gray booties, since Atlanta will not make up it’s mind about whether it’s spring or not. But this would also work well with some great wedges, or summer sandals.

I’ll admit it. I haven’t worn Converse sneakers since high school and, now that a pair has found its way back into my wardrobe, I am not sure how I’ve lived without! These tennis shoes are as stylish as they are classic, and a must for every gal, no matter what your personal style, this season. I love the look of Converse paired with casual dresses, boyfriend and skinny jeans as well as a simple shorts outfit, like the one I am wearing here. They are effortlessly cool and my new go-to shoes for weekend-wear and busy days running around with the kiddos.

There are so many cute Converse styles out this Spring, and Nordstrom has an amazing selection. Here are some of my favorites ::

And a side note… if you are looking for a great pair of denim shorts this season, the pair I am wearing here are it. They are super comfy and the kind of shorts you’ll live in this Summer. I sized up for a slouchier fit. {Today Nordstrom is price-matching them for 25% off!}

Happy Friday!

Spring and summer is the time to bring out those bright neon hues.  I am loving this Loft eyelet skirt. It is a perfect piece that can be worn with a t-shirt and flats or dressed up with a blouse and your favorite heels.  If skirts are not your thing, shop some of my favorite neon pieces for spring here.

Eyelet lace is always a classic option for Spring/Summer, and it’s making quite a statement this season. An eyelet dress makes a great daytime look, that can be dressed up or down and accessorized in so many ways. I love this Old Navy eyelet shirtdress, and it’s hard to believe it is under $50!

The wrap dress is one of the few items of clothing that can universally flatter most any body type.  It’s the perfect dress to accentuate or create a waistline.  It is a timeless piece that is always stylish, sophisticated, and classy.

Diane Von Furstenberg is the brains behind the iconic wrap dress, but not everyone can afford the $400 price tag.  This Shabby Apple gingham check wrap is a steal at $82 and perfect for whatever occasion suits you.  I wore my dress on Easter Sunday with a contrast shoe and my favorite leopard clutch.
