During the hot summer months, I live in skirts and dresses. I have lots of fun tutorials for both coming up soon, but today I want to share a few favorites from the past!

Midi skirts are huge this season, and so fun to dress up or down for spring and summer. Here are three easy midi skirts you could whip up in an afternoon. Which one is your favorite?

Happy Friday!

J.Crew Factory Sale


J.Crew Factory is one of my favorite places to shop because it has so many pieces from J.Crew, but at a fraction of the cost. And they always have the best sales, like right now where everything is 50% off -- and no coupon code needed, it's just all on sale!

I scoured the site yesterday and picked out my very favorite pieces (and may or may not have ended up with a few items in my cart...). Click the numbers above to shop the pieces in the collage, or click the images in the widget below to shop all of my favorite pieces in the sale. I picked up this gingham button up (since my old one mysteriously disappeared about a month ago and is nowhere to be found), this pom pom trim swim cover up (which I may or may not wear as a regular top with jeans instead), these clear sunglasses (which I'm totally obsessed with), and a few other fun summer pieces. I can't wait to show you how I style them!

The sale ends tomorrow, so hurry and snag yourself a few pieces while everything is such a steal!

There's something so exciting and fresh about spring for me. All the blooming trees and plants, the warm sun and cool breeze -- it's just the best time of year (besides Christmas, of course). With this time of year comes spring cleaning (my favorite! I shared my process right here), and then restocking your closet with a few new spring pieces. Today I've teamed up with Zappos to share three closet staples you should add to your spring shopping list -- and the best part is that Zappos has super fast, free shipping, so you can have those new staples in your closet almost immediately (I ordered these shoes and they showed up seriously less than 36 hours later...so awesome).

1. Little white dress. The LWD is a huge staple for spring that will also take you right into summer. It acts just like a little black dress, meaning that it goes with absolutely anything and is appropriate for pretty much any occasion, but it's a much more chic and fresh option for spring and summer. Zappos is super easy to navigate, and you can easily narrow your search to find a ton of beautiful white dresses.

2. Floral pumps. Floral is huge this spring, and it's migrated from dresses and tops, to bags, and now to shoes....and gosh, I love it on shoes. I have a few pairs of floral pumps and I cannot get enough of them -- they are so feminine, and although they're bold, they go with everything. It's even a fun and easy way to pattern mix. Throw them on with a striped top, a gingham button up, or a polka dot midi skirt. You'll get a ton of use out of them!

3. Colorful Bag. Spring is when I start pulling out aaallll my colorful pieces. A bright, happy bag is such a fun way to add a pop of color to your outfit, and is definitely a staple for spring and through summer. And with a white dress, or all white outfit, it's the perfect bold statement. This pink Michael Kors bag has been pretty much glued to my shoulder since I got it! Pink is my color crush of the moment, but this bag also comes in a gorgeous watermelon color, a pale blue, and a ton of other gorgeous spring colors.

What are your spring closet staples??
