Woven bags. Straw bags. Call it what you want but I just can't get enough of them! The trend continues from last year and is getting even more unique. This spring, I was thinking about getting a Summer Fridays tote which I linked below or this gorgeous seashell tote that has such a unique shape and a circular handle. If you're looking to invest in a new designer bag, Prada came out with their own woven bag collection and it's gorgeous and comes with a nude strap so you can wear it as a crossbody. For clutches that's perfect for an evening out or to wear on vacation, I love this peach seashell one, teal circular one or even this purple one which I've never seen anything like it before! Lastly, for an everyday woven piece check out this Tory Burch which is small enough for your phone, credit card and some lipstick. 

What's your favorite woven bag? Are you loving the trend or over it?

It looks like spring has decided to stay in Dallas and I'm totally not complaining! I decided to bring out some of my favorite spring/summer pieces for this look and shopped from my closet. I never understood how fashion bloggers can constantly buy new things 24/7 and not take advantage of what they already own in their closet. It's just not realistic, am I right? 

Right when the weather gets warmer, I'll start wearing more white which is one of my favorite colors and I'm not afraid of wearing it from head to toe. It's so refreshing and looks clean and elegant - even with a casual outfit like this. I bought this off the shoulder pleated top from Zara last summer and I'm shocked I never blogged about it since I've worn it so much. I paired it with my new go-to ripped ankle jeans. The ripped hem look is so chic and perfect for petite girls! It also allows you to show off your favorite pair of heels without having to roll the hems. Speaking of shoes, I bought these Gucci wedges last summer on my Vegas trip and can't believe that I always forget that I own them! I've never even blogged about them before until now. This was an impulse purchase and while I'm obsessed with them, I'll admit it's difficult to find outfits to pair them with. Any ideas? So far it goes with this all-white look perfectly. 

Lastly, this bag. I know I wore it so much last summer and you guys are probably sick of seeing it everywhere online but it JUST GOES WITH EVERYTHING. I can't imagine retiring this bag one day! I don't even care if it goes out of style - it's a staple in my closet and I'll continue to wear it this summer lol. Anyone else passionate about this bag? I'm thinking about purchasing it in other colors (ahem blush pink, I'm looking at you). 

What are some of your favorite pieces for the spring and summer?

Jacket / Top / Skirt / Shoes, check in stores (similar) / Bag / Sunglasses 


 If there's one item that I can't live without this spring, it's a denim jacket. I've been looking for a good one for a year now and finally found it at Zara last month. I've been getting so much use out of it (pretty sure I've been wearing it at least 3x a week lol) that I'm thinking about getting it in a lighter color as well. It just goes with everything and even looks great with a pencil skirt for the office! Here, I decided to go with a more casual look with an all-white outfit and my new Chanel espadrilles which you can find see more details of here

Also let's talk about THIS bag. I've added it to my spring/summer bag collection (of course I'll still wear this straw bag and wooden clutch all the time lol) but it's a nice change and fits so much inside! Plus it's light-weight and looks just as chic when you're on vacation too. 

Outside of blogging, life has been pretty quiet these past couple of weeks and I feel like I'm auto-pilot all the time and time is just flying by - especially with my 365-day work schedule. I've been trying to slow-down and really take the time to do the things that I love such as blogging (tons of new posts coming!), self-care and even going to yoga classes again. On the bright side, I've really been good on my new year's resolutions and have been eating healthy consistently, managed to incorporate more natural beauty products to my routine and even stopped buying Starbucks so I can save money. It just feels so good to take care of myself and create better habits! While it's definitely not an overnight thing, I've noticed that when I slowly started developing new habits - I've become obsessed with the results and it encourages me to create more positive changes in my life. Maybe I should write a post about this?

Happy Friday!
