buzz buzz!

Hello, everybody! As I'm struggling to keep warm in this backlash of winter weather, I thought I'd share a spring-y outfit to help boost my spirits. This bright blue and white polka-dotted skirt was the answer to my prayers! It's light enough for warm spring days but also thick enough to keep your legs cozy indoors. Plus, it has pockets, so it basically made my life complete :). Paired with this short-sleeved Ralph Lauren oxford, the outfit is fresh and fun, while also taking a page from the classic style of the 1950's (my favorite era of style!!). 
This look would not be complete without some big ol' jewels (you guys know me...gotta have some bling! ;). This bumblebee-inspired statement necklace was actually sent to me by Shiny Mix, a new online jewelry boutique. I actually fell in love with their merchandise on Instagram (you need to check it out here!) and giddily anticipated their online launch at the beginning of April. Currently, they're offering free shipping to all U.S. customers! Everyone should go to their shop or any of their social media outlets, and give them some love for a job well done on their stylish website!

  1. I love the look of a short sleeved RL shirt - I haven't seen them styled very much but I love them!
