Vacay Beach Bag

Spring break plans? Yay! Treat yo' self to a new beach bag, like this adorbs Vacay Beach Bag from South Beach. Roomy enough to hold an entire day's worth of necessities for lounging on the sand or in the water, I bet you could even get away with making it your "purse" for air travel. Stash your laptop and magazines inside while you fly and then switch them out with sun tan lotion and oversized sunglasses when you get to your warm weather destination. The best part? The price! At under $25, it leaves you with plenty of extra cash to splurge on your trip.

Lianna Embroidered Blouse

Featuring bright red floral embellishments, a babydoll fit, and trumpet sleeves, the Lianna Embroidered Blouse is a knockout statement top. Wear it over skinny jeans and throw up your hair into a carefree top knot for a chic and easy day look. The style may look overwhelming, but it works surprisingly well on any number of body shapes. Wear it during those early days of spring when you need some coverage against the still slightly chilly wind, but want to look fresh and romantically boho.

High Rise Skinny

High rise jeans are back! Okay, so they've been back for a while, but they're becoming much more available in their variety and affordability. This pair of High Rise Skinny Jeans from Mott & Bow is a sultry black and feels almost as comfortable as your favorite pair of leggings while still retaining a great structure that keeps all your parts tucked in and slimmed down. No more muffin top! The rise sits high, but not so high that the button digs into the soft area of your stomach while you sit (one of my biggest jean pet peeves!). Wash sparingly to keep the shade vibrant and the fit tailored to your own awesome curves.

Jackie Tie Neck Striped Cardigan

Clearly, J.Crew is channeling Jackie Onassis, style icon extraordinaire, with their Jackie Tie Neck Striped Cardigan. The cardi retains some of its previous era charm thanks to that preppy little neck bow, but retains modern balance with its thick blue and white striping and casual buttons. Wear it with a floral midi skirt and a pair of ballet flats to keep it trendy, or dress it up with heels, a slim ankle pant, and a pretty pearl bracelet for a more classic look.

Hoop Drop Earrings

I love browsing fashion and watching fashion trends, but will admit to being a bit lazy about my own personal style, specifically when it comes to accessorizing. If I could, I'd wear my pair of Genuine People's Hoop Drop Earrings daily (honestly, there's nothing stopping me from doing this except the guilt I feel at letting the rest of my earrings collect dust). They're trendy but versatile; they elevate a casual outfit of jeans and a sweater and perfectly complement business casual work attire. Sometimes, when you've got a good thing going, there's not much sense in mixing it up!
