This high-low dress is so effortlessly pretty and feminine, it doesn’t need much explanation. It’s flowy, fun to wear and a perfect dressed up Springtime look. I’m normally a bright-color loving girl, but this season, I am so into soft pastels, making this pale watercolor-like floral pattern absolute perfection.

In: Denim, Spring

Colored denim is, once again, a huge player this spring.  So, to my husband, who 3 years ago, was all, “hey Sherri, the 80’s called, and they want their pink jeans back“….

A) You’re hysterical

and

B) Told. You. So.

If in need of your own colored denim this spring, here are a few of my current favorites:

Bonus:  if you buy some, you’ll almost certainly be able to tell your husband that you told him so.

Until next time,

The little denim dress is the answer to almost any “what do I wear today” woe during Spring and Summer. It’s the dress to have this season, and a wardrobe staple you’ll wonder how you lived without.

A denim or chambray dress can be accessorized infinite different ways {think bold jewelry or a bright scarf for a serious statement}, worn with flats, sneakers, wedges or heels and even layered with a jacket to change up the look. It’s the ideal weekend look, and some denim dress styles can even be office-appropriate.

How fun are the bright, bold accessories I’m wearing here? My necklace and tote are both by Noonday Collection and I picked them up on my recent trip to Austin, where I had the honor of styling thirteen Noonday Ambassadors for the Noonday Fall 2015 Lookbook. We partnered with Anthropologie for clothing, and so, naturally, it was a dream collaboration to style two of my favorites, Anthro and Noonday, together!

The Noonday Fall collection is a-mazing and I cannot wait for it to launch, but in the mean time, here are a few shots from the day of the shoot. {Ironically, the shoot took place on one of the coldest days of the year for Austin. Schools were even called off due to the frigid temps and high winds! The production team, models and I had lots of laughs in our attempts to keep warm and all drank a record amount of hot coffee beverages during the 10 hour shoot!}

If you are beginning to prepare for Spring Break beach trips or summer trips to the pool, here are a few essentials I am loving!

1. Tory Burch Miller Sandals :: I have had these in nude patent the for the past two summers and they are my go-to casual summer shoe. This poppy red is just so fun and unexpected!

2. Aerie High-Waisted Bikini :: Hands-down one of the most flattering suits I have ever tried on! I love it and plan on ordering it in every color/pattern available.

3. Karen Walker Sunnies :: I have an obsession with all Karen Walker shades, and this pair is a classic that looks good on every face shape.

4. Beauty Counter All Over Sunscreed SPF 30 :: A safe, effective sunscreen for the whole family… and it doesn’t leave white streaks or a bad odor!

5. Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster SPF 15 Lip Gloss :: A moisturizing shimmering light pink gloss. My current-go to for a boost of lip shine.

Happy weekend!

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.
