Spring Has Sprung
Although living in Southern California usually means perpetual sunshine, we have our own version of the four seasons - and this year, has been uncharacteristically chillier than normal.
So when the sun came out, I took full advantage of the above 60F weather - and donned my favorite denim jacket (that just went on sale!), and some light weight linen.
I Hate Polyester
Seriously, have you ever worn a 100% polyester dress in the sweltering Socal sun? It's a lethal combination! Even the thinest, and softest of polyester fabrics create an uncomfortable situation. The reason, in short - polyester is plastic! It's a man-made material, that offers zero breathability or moisture absorption. Because of this, I stick to cotton & other natural fabrics - because comfort trumps style, always!
These linen blended drawstring pants are a must for your spring wardrobe. They can be dressed up for a boozy brunch with heeled sandals, or down for a farmer's market stroll with flats - all the while maintaining an overall effortless look. The top I got a few seasons back from Zara, and is also a linen blend. . Lot's of people steer clear of linen because of the lived in look the natural fibre creates (read: lot's of wrinkles!), but the wrinkled lived in look is in - so embrace it!
I've included some of my current linen Spring favorites below. Simply click on the item's photo, and it will take you to it's website to purchase.
Trending: Embroidered Denim
I'm a sucker for embroidery! It's so nostalgic - and always seems to come back in style when the weather warm's up. It's such a fun juxtapose to otherwise rugged denim, and the pops of colors within the classically floral embroidered design's - make for endless accessorizing options.
My jacket is currently on sale at H&M, so run - don't walk (or click quickly here! )
Embroidery is also a super easy way to update old pieces you already have in your closet. There are lot's of places to purchase cute iron on patches, giving you creative control (which I love!). Yet, if you are short on time, and need instant gratification (also me!) - I've included some affordable embroidered pieces to add to your spring rotation below. . If you are feeling extra fancy, keep scrolling below to see some drool worthy embroidered pieces from (with hefty price tags!).
Again, this piece was an inexpensive fun purchase from H&M (which is even less expensive, and now on SALE!) - but there are some lust worthy embroidered denim from the likes of Gucci, to Moshino, and other's high end brand's for your viewing pleasure included below (as always, click on the image to be taken to it's product page)
