How to Style A Mint Green Cardigan for Fall and Winter

Given that temperatures are dropping in the western hemisphere and winter is starting to creep up, I want to share how to style a mint green cardigan for fall and winter. Plus, Norfolk just had the Grand Illumination Parade, trust me it’s a really big and bright deal, so that means Christmas is right around the corner! Mint green is traditionally more of a spring and summer color. I remember back in 2012, pining for all things mint, whether it was a good blouse or pair of mint gingham pants (holy crap, what a throwback to an embarrassing, younger version of me!). Mint is still a great color to wear but I can understand the challenges of styling it for fall and winter.

Hello Fall :: The Floral Transition Dress You Need

Happy First Monday of Fall, Y’all! While I’m very sad summer is officially over, I do love the start of a new season. I know it may still be quite warm where many of you live, so I want to talk about an easy transitional look. This is the floral transition dress you need to help ease into fall. This shirt dress has a classic silhouette with a very feminine and fun pattern. If this print looks familiar, it’s because I have silk wide-leg pants in the same print. It’s truly such a stunning print and is something you can wear for years to come. I’m wearing a size 00 here and the midi length is just perfect, especially with my heeled sandals. Plus, this dress has a huge upside: pockets! I cannot resist something with pockets.

Why You Need a Pair of Wide-Leg Pants

You may have seen plenty of wide-leg pants popping up lately, especially on me! Wide-leg pants are very nostalgic for me. They give me the same vibes as the pants I would wear with an Ao Dai, which is a traditional Vietnamese long dress. I’m partnering with River Island on today’s post to share why you need a pair of wide-leg pants, especially for summer! Wide-leg pants are all the rage right now and these white ones are my current obsession. Wide-leg pants are extremely flattering on everyone and they really elongate you! Plus, they’re so comfortable to wear, especially in the heat because they aren’t tight or restrictive. They really let your skin breathe and keep you cool. This particular pair of wide-leg pants comes in 11 colors, including classics such as black but also fun colors such as lavender, pink and more!

Romantic Lace Off-the-Shoulder Romper for Weddings

When spring hits, I love love the off-the-shoulder trend. I think it’s extremely feminine, flirty and perfect for getting or showing off a nice tan. That’s why I think this blush lace off-the-shoulder romper is the wardrobe staple of the season. One of my favorite aspects on this romper is the scalloped hem. This adds a touch of whimsy to an already romantic piece. Plus, with how beautiful and delicate the lace is, this just adds an extra factor. As someone with a smaller chest, I love when there are ruffles over the bust because this adds the illusion of more. The elastic on this lace off-the-shoulder romper is snug but isn’t overly restrictive, which is great. It’s always awful when you feel like you can’t move in your clothes.
