Spring Style: Pastels, Florals, and my JORD Watch

Let’s talk about the weather. Not in the normal “can’t-come-up-with-conversation” way, but the “what-the-hell-do-I-wear” way. Earlier this week, it was 60 degrees and I didn’t even wear a coat! The next day, we got 5 inches of snow. Global warming is real, y’all.

To combat this insane weather, I’ve developed a “uniform” – skinny jeans, cute spring tops or sweaters, and booties or over-the-knee (otk) boots. And an outfit is never complete without gorgeous accessories. Right now I’m crushing on my amazing new JORD Wood Watch. The best part? There’s a giveaway below!

Everything from my uniform is affordable and classic. You can wear these spring-ish (yes, I made that word up) staples over and over again. So, I’ve put together some of my favorites!



A great way to welcome spring while staying warm is wearing sweaters and tops in spring colors. Think pinks, pretty blues, yellow…basically any pastel or bright color! Floral prints are another option. It’s like doing a rain dance – if you dress for spring, spring will come. Right?!


JORD Wood Watch

I’m a sucker for accessories. I mean, aren’t you too? So when JORD reached out to collaborate, I said heck yeah. JORD Wood Watches are gorgeous time pieces that you can wear with basically any outfit. They look especially good with spring tops! Each watch is made of a different type of wood. I picked out the Frankie zebrawood + navy watch because I’m trying to incorporate more navy into my wardrobe.

The watch arrived in an amazing wood box. Apparently, I’m also a sucker for good packaging! My watch was sized perfectly for my wrist (you can order the watch pre-sized – SO convenient!). The box also had a watch face cleaner and cloth.

I’m so pleased with my new watch. And I think you would be too if you had one. So, I’ve got a contest for you! Click on the link below to enter the contest! Every single entrant will get a $25 off code for a watch. And one lucky winner will receive $100 off a watch! The contest ends March 5th.

Jeans are a staple of mine for any season. I’ve alway’s been a “jeans girl.” I prefer them over dresses or skirts ANY day. My favorite cut are skinny jeans. They’re universally flattering and make your legs look like they belong to Karlie Kloss. Who doesn’t want that!?

Right now my favorite my pair is the Modern Skinny Ankle Jeans from Ann Taylor. They’re a mid-rise, darker wash with faint whisking. I have 4 pairs. That’s just how good these jeans are. 3 of my friends have also gotten these jeans and LOVED them. PS – the jeans also come in a curvy fit. Between modern and curvy, anyone can find a fit that they like!


Booties and OTK Boots

Just because you’re wearing a spring top doesn’t mean you can wear sandals. Girl, please. Keep those toes covered (and warm) with booties or OTK boots. My go-to booties are the Sam Edelman Petty Bootie. They’re true ankle booties and pair perfectly with those Ann Taylor jeans I mentioned earlier. There’s even a suede version if you like that look better.

OTK Boots are all the rage right now. And for good reason. They’re slimming AND they keep your feet warm. It’s basically like wearing huge socks. I found mine at Nordstrom Rack – from BCBG Generation. Unfortunately, they aren’t online. But there are a ton of other options out there, like this Dolce Vita OTK boot.
