It’s that time again for a LOOKBOOK! This is by far one of my favorite things to write about and create for you guys. It is so much fun every time and my beautiful friend/model/photographer Hailey is such a wonderful partner for this. You can check out our first Mid Winter lookbook here.
February is the shortest month of the year, so before we know it, Winter will be over and Spring will be here. Y’all know what that means!! Flowers, allegeries, and wardrobe additions. (While doing this shoot, we also got to go shopping, so I may be posting another Haul soon!!!)
This lookbook is mainly centered around crop tops, shorts, flats and we even played around with some velvet! Okay, here we go.
Here is our first crop top. Hailey told me that she’s definitely feeling these forest green colors, and I think the color looks so great on her. I also LOVE her light wash jeans. I see light wash jeans and shorts trending into the Spring season.
Well here is a sneak peek of that haul I may create. So we went to the mall before taking pictures and an H&M recently opened up. You could see my excitement on my Twitter (JeSuisArt). So I got these pleated shorts that Hailey and I are LIVING for. The shirt is such a good investment. It has an embroidered quote that says “Life is rocky when you’re a gem.” And a little diamond. How cute!!! These sandals don’t really match. I broke the whole “don’t wear brown with black” rule, but I think it actually looks pretty nice.
For this look, Hailey brought this super pretty dusty rose crop top that we both adore. I think the best part is the high neck element it bring to the table. Hailey is super great at picking colors, as I see this color merging it’s way into Spring. Crop tops were trending last year as well, and I think they will continue to still be relevant. We loved this top so much, we decided to share it!
Now the style piece in the outfit above is most definitely the shorts. They are amazing. I love prints all of the sudden, and they can be so much fun to play with. I’ve been checking out other bloggers and we all agree; stripes are totally gonna be hitting the sidewalks this season. I switched out my sandals for these adorable lace up flats. This outfit is destined for the beach.
So as I said earlier, we went shopping at H&M and Hailey picked up these beautiful, high waisted, no pocket having shorts. I think they fit her body wonderfully and look so cute paired with this all black crop top. Doesn’t she look gorgeous? Crop tops ARE for everyone and honestly, it is a huge barrier to break. I didn’t feel comfortable wearing crop tops until around this year, and still have a hard time feeling confident with my tiny belly punge. But I’m slowly merging into them, and maybe if I drink more smoothies, they’ll become more popular for me. If you have worries about incorporating crop tops into your wardrobe, have no fear. You can totally work it!!!
This is our finale piece. Here we have for you guys the stripes, the crop top, the velvet and the shoes. It wouldn’t be spring for me if I didn’t wear a dress. And this one I got at an outlet store, and quite honestly I hate the top. I don’t appreciate the neckline of this dress, or its sleeves. But I had the idea to through this almost see through top on over it, and wow, it changes up the look completely. And the jacket, can we just rage about the jacket for a second? This jacket came with a dress in the exact same print, however the dress became too small for me so I gave it away. But I totally kept the jacket because I’m not crazy, you know. I’ve had this thing since about freshman year, but you can only wear a statement piece like this so many times. Velvet bomber jackets, and bomber jackets in general, are circulating the magazines once more. I almost bought a silk floral one from H&M that was too die for and super cheap. Now I’m kicking myself for it.
Hailey and I had such a fun time putting this together for y’all. After we were done, we went and pigged out at Panera Bread that you can see behind us. I recently got some makeup and clothes, so if you’re interested in seeing a haul of those things please let me know. Thank y’all so much for reading. Follow me for more updates via email and I will see you Wednesday.
