Things I’m Loving, Vol. 13

things i'm loving

Happy Spring! I write that as snow falls outside my window. I don’t think in the four years I’ve lived in Virginia that we’ve had snow this late in the season. Fortunately, I’ve got the place to myself for a few hours and can hunker down and get some stuff done. Regardless of the snow, this week’s Things I’m Loving features all things spring! I can’t wait for white jeans, flow-y tops, and open-toed shoes.

Things I’m Loving:

Leith Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress

I know, I know. I’ve featured this dress countless times, BUT I just bought it in this color and I can’t say enough good things. It comes in a bunch of colors and is perfect for work, or even for a casual weekend. The ruching is so flattering on every body type.

American Eagle Striped Jumpsuit

This photo does this jumpsuit zero justice. This may be the most flattering thing I’ve ever seen. Several bloggers I follow have featured this jumpsuit, all different shapes and sizes, and it looks incredible on them all. The legs are slightly cropped and the the tie in the middle cinches in just the right area. I promise this is a good one. And it’s on major sale right now, too!

10 Springtime Staples You Need In Your Closet

10 spring staples

Sunshine! And warmth! Something that’s been missing so far this March. Looking at throwbacks on Facebook, it seems that this time of year in 2017 we were enjoying a heat wave. Alas, it’s still technically winter, so I should be patient, but I’m downright tired of my wardrobe and looking forward to wearing brighter colors, dresses, and *gasp* open-toed shoes!

This spring is going to be a busy one for the Gregory clan. We’ve got a few trips scheduled, a bunch of visitors heading our way, and some other big events that should make April and May fly by! – like, a certain boy’s second birthday! Spring is my favorite season to dress for. I love flow-y dresses paired with a denim jacket. I love light sweaters with denim shorts. I love it all!

I’ve put together a list of some closet staples to upgrade your spring wardrobe. These are all items that can be worn several different ways – layered, solo, mix n’ match. That’s the best thing about spring! Everything is new again and getting dressed should be fun!

universal thread wedges

A Good Pair of Wedges

Target launched the Universal Thread line over the winter and everything is so good. These wedges are dupes to a much more expensive pair, but are only $33! Such a great basic color for spring and summer. I bet you’ll wear these with everything – denim, skirts, dresses, even shorts.

 

leith ruched dress

A Versatile Dress

I finally purchased this dress and it did NOT disappoint. It’s so good and so flattering. I cannot wait to wear this on repeat all spring and summer long. It’s a great length for work, or chasing around a toddler, and the ruching is perfectly placed. It also comes in a long-sleeve version for colder weather, and comes in a million colors. I could’ve gone with a small, but sized up since I wanted it a little less body-con-esque. But it fits pretty true to size.

floral dress nordstrom

A Great Floral Dress

Nothing screams spring more than a pastel, floral dress. This one comes in a bunch of color options and the wrap feature is so flattering.

old navy swing dress

A Basic Swing Dress

I fell in love with swing dresses the summer I had Finn, and I haven’t stopped yet. Old Navy makes it so easy, because these basic swing dresses are so affordable and come in a variety of colors and styles – some have sleeves, others are sleeveless. They fit true to size.

denim jacket

A Denim Jacket

My denim jacket is my most-worn item during the spring. I went with a medium wash since I find that to be the most versatile. I wear it with everything – dresses, skirts, canvas shorts, etc!

footbed sandals

Footbed sandals

If you’re a mom, then buy these sandals. There is nothing more comfortable than these bad boys. The best part, they are only $22! Target to the rescue again. Yes, they may be knockoff Birkenstocks, but I actually find these to be a bit more feminine than regular ole Birks, plus at only $22, you can buy a new pair every summer and not feel bad about it!

aeo cropped denim

Cropped Denim

American Eagle continues to be my go-to place for great denim, either because I’m still in high school, or just because I have yet to find a better fit on my body type. Plus, they always have great deals. These cropped denim are the perfect fit and color for spring! Cropped denim is one of my favorite things about spring! I mean, what other season can you make them work?

aeo white denim

White Denim

I know that there is no longer a rule about white after Labor Day, but I play it old school still. I think white pants should be saved for the sunnier months! This pair is also from American Eagle and I find them pretty true to size and they aren’t see through, even for those of us with hips!

lightweight sweater

Lightweight Sweater

There are chunky sweaters meant for the freezing January weather, and there are lightweight sweaters that are perfect for spring. March and April may still have days that require something heavier than a sundress, so having a lightweight sweater in your wardrobe is essential. Target does it again with this one!

madewell basic tee

Basic Tee

This could be a staple in any season’s wardrobe, but a basic tee is essential for spring. It’s the perfect item for layering! These Madewell ones are so soft and are under $20. Stock up!

10 Must-Haves From The Nordstrom Winter Sale – All Under $50

nordstrom winter sale

There are some really great sales happening today for President’s Day, but I keep going back to the Nordstrom Winter Sale. It’s just easier to shop at Nordstrom, since shipping and returns are ALWAYS free. I sometimes wonder how we can put a man on the moon, but we still have to pay ridiculous fees for shipping?! Anyone else? It just makes me gravitate towards online retailers who make it easy – like Nordstrom!

Anyways, many of these items I own myself, or have recently purchased through this sale. I have done a lot of research (aka read a lot of reviews) and these items are not only great options, but a lot of them are basics that are great for every season, and it’s just a bonus that they are under $50! Many are under $30! So Happy Shopping!

Circle Cardigan

 

Leith Easy Circle Cardigan

I own this and it’s one of my favorite sweaters of all time. It’s cozy, but easy to wear to work. Plus it’s longer, so wearing with leggings is totally doable. It comes in gray and this tan color. Currently on sale for $45.

Roll Tab Tunic

 

Perfect Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic

I also own this in black and white and it’s my favorite work blouse. I would size down (if that’s an option). However, I ordered my normal size and it’s long enough to wear with leggings. Currently on sale for $28.

Shop

 

 

 

 

BP Mock Neck Tunic Sweater

 

BP Mock Neck Tunic Sweater

things i'm loving

Happy last week of January! Can you believe that we’re already a month into the new year?! Things have been a little crazy around the Gregory Household recently… more of that to come! But we did get to spend some time with our friends and their newest addition this weekend, and being around a newborn certainly puts things into perspective. This week’s Things I’m Loving includes a lot of basics, which I’m trying to fill my wardrobe with. You can’t go wrong with a nice sweater or a simple tee. Happy Shopping!

Things I’m Loving:

Treasure & Bond Varsity Tee

Treasure & Bond Varsity Tee

I just bought this is a deep pink color and I’m obsessed. I wore it all weekend long, David started looking at me sideways :). It comes in so many colors. I ordered up one size so I could wear it with leggings, but it fits oversized as it is, so order your regular size.

Socialite Stripe Cozy Tee

This is a perfect transition piece as we head into spring. I can’t say no to a good stripe, and the colors are neutral, so it would be great for layering.

Do You Have A Poncho In Your Wardrobe?

shop the post: poncho – sold out, I’ve linked similar options in the widget below // shoes – blondo, they are waterproof and so incredibly comfortable // jeans – american eagle // beanie – old, similar here


Keeping it short and sweet over here today! The weather was warming up for a hot minute there, but alas, we are back to winter coats this morning. These photos with this Caslon Poncho was taken a few weeks back, and since then, the poncho has sold out. However, I did find some other really great ponchos that are on major discount right now. It’s such a great item to wear to transition into spring. And if you’re a new mama with a growing belly or a nursing mom, ponchos are the perfect item for your closet. They will grow with your belly and hide everything when the time comes to feed the babe.

Hope your week has been going well! If you missed my post on Trunk Club the other day, be sure to check it out. Some of the items I’m wearing in this post are from Trunk Club and I am absolutely obsessed!
