The leather jacket was a must-have piece this winter, and it’s sticking around another season. This Spring, leather jackets are trending in pastels, whites and light neutrals. It’s a great option for chillier Spring days and something that can be worn well into the warmer months. Throw it over a basic tee and jeans, like I am wearing here, to instantly dress up an outfit. Layer over a sundress or romper, and even wear with a dressy pair of shorts into summer to go day to night with style and sophistication.

I absolutely love learning about fashion-forward companies that are mission-minded and give back. And that’s why I was thrilled to have been recently introduced to FashionABLE. This company’s mission is to create sustainable business in Africa.  They are committed to long-term solutions to fighting poverty, and their main focus is creating opportunities for vulnerable women.  Every purchase creates jobs, so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy. How awesome is that?!

Did you notice my amazing leather tote? It’s by FashionABLE and handcrafted in Ethiopia. The leather is beautiful and this tote is a stylish and practical bag for everyday use. FashionABLE also offers great scarves and jewelry, as well as other handbags. It comes as no surprise that celebs like Minka Kelly, Jessica Alba, Olivia Wilde are fans and seen carrying/wearing these pieces. I’m so happy that FashionABLE is offering Edit followers 15% off any purchase today and tomorrow with code “LAURENSFRIENDS.”

Stylishly yours,

trail blazer

Mother Nature can certainly mess with your head and your closet during the early months of spring.  The sun is shining, but the temperature doesn’t always follow suit.  We want to shed our winter layers and run free with our bare arms and legs in spring colors and prints.

A blazer is the answer to our fickle weather and a great way to add a little warmth.  A stripe blazer takes it up a notch and becomes the perfect completer piece for bright colors, a sporty print, or a bold necklace.

This Zara blazer is dressy enough to be worn to the office with a pencil skirt or worn casual with jeans and a graphic tee.  Old Navy has a similar version that is currently $25 and just as cute!

Those of you who know me personally and/or have followed along here on the blog for a few seasons know that I have an obsession with stripes. It’s a good thing I don’t believe that a person can have too many stripes in their wardrobe, since I have a significantly large collection of striped garments! Stripes, especially “nautical” blue and white, are timeless and effortlessly stylish. This season, I am loving the look of popping a bright color with classic stripes, like I did here with my neon cross body bag! This dress is perfect for Easter, and also looks polished worn with a fitted jacket or blazer. {If you are considering ordering this dress online, I found this dress runs a bit big through the waist. For reference, I am wearing a size 2 and wish I had purchased the size 0.}

Black and white is always a classic combo and the duo is making a major fashion statement this Spring. This sassy crop top and cute ruffled shorts are a part of a brand carried at Nordstrom, called 1.State. This brand offers trendsetting, mixable and affordable pieces. {For instance, the pieces I am wearing are each under $100.}

Pairing black and white separates is effortless and offers the flexibility of mixing and matching so many different outfits. Use the black and white combo as a blank canvas for adding pop of color like I did here with my neon yellow shoes.

Here’s some fab black and white seperates from Nordstrom to shop, all priced under $100!

gingham style

Although gingham never really went out of style, it has made a strong comeback for spring in more than just a button down.  Several high end designers featured gingham skirts and dresses for their spring collections and let me say…I am a huge fan.

Finding the perfect gingham skirt has been a bit of a challenge.  I stumbled across this eight sixty midi skirt from Piperlime a few weeks ago.  The color, skirt length, and fabric are perfect for spring and summer and a great way to add pattern to your wardrobe.

Multiple retro styles, including flared jeans, are making a comeback this Spring. If you’ve been wanting to try out a pair of high{er}-waisted, flared jeans, this pair by Pilcro from Anthropologie are a perfect fit. The cut/stretch/fit of these jeans make them seriously flattering and the front-pockets add a major style statement. Add a pair of wedges or heels and you are good-to-go for any laid-back occassion!

Happy weekend!

This high-neck, flowy shift dress is a perfect look for beach-side dinner, a casual day-wedding or a brunch event. It also makes a chic Easter dress. And it’s hard to believe it’s only $66! I paired it with other shades of pink, including blush heels and a rose-hued faux-leather jacket for an unexpected color mix. {If you are looking for a great pair of heels for Spring, this pair is very comfortable, and the blush-color can act as a substitution to a nude heel in most cases, making them very versatile.}

day sequins

Sequins just feel fancy, despite their traditional prom/bad 80’s movie connotations.  And there is no better time of day for fancy than daytime.

(Because, let’s be honest.  By 6pm, all I wanna be doing is eating M&M’s and watching some Bravo.  Ain’t nobody need sequins for that.)

Edit by Lauren | day sequins

To keep my outfit from looking too sweet/girly, I paired my sequins with some gray jeans and black booties.  Which clearly scream “TOUGH” and “WATCH OUT FOR MY SASSY SEQUINS!”

(And nothing is tougher than an iced latte.  I’m just saying.)

If you have followed the Edit by Lauren blog over the past year, you’ve seen me post a few times about Albion Fit. I’m a big fan of Albion’s fitness and swim wear, since their pieces are both unique and made to fit women with “real” bodies.

I wore these Antiqua floral Cropped Leggings in pink on the blog last summer, and just added added the newly-released cobalt pair to my fitness wardrobe recently. They are stretchy yet have enough structure to flatter and hold their shape. And this hoodie is so cozy and soft, I want to live in it!

All these wonderful things being said, I know you’ll be excited to hear that I’m teaming up with Albion Fit to GIVEAWAY four $25 gift certificates to FOUR friends. All you have to do is follow me {@laurenlefevre} and @albionfit on Instagram and tag THREE friends on my Albion Fit Instagram photo post {which will go up this morning}.  If you are selected, you and your THREE friends will ALL win a $25 gift certificate! We will announce the winner both here on the blog and on Instagram next Tuesday, March 24th.

Additionally, Albion Fit is offering Edit by Lauren followers a 15% off discount off any purchase made within the next two weeks with code “eblalbion15.” 

Stylishly yours,
