The perfect top for your spring looks

top : Zara | pants: Abercrombie | earrings : francesca’s , similiar (here) | bag : Rebecca Minkoff | heels : target | Moto jacket : Blank NYC |

Hope Everyone is off to a great week so far. I know I sure am. Who else is ready for spirng outifts. I know this gingham top is going to be getting worn a lot come spring time. Who else is starting to build their spring wardrobes. I know I have been pinning like crazy on pinterest trying to find my perfect spring pieces. Fall and Spring are my two favorite seasons to dress for.

We have my nephews 2nd brithday party where my sister did her gender reveal. Looks like yet another BOY! I love being an Aunt. Especially when they are as cute and lovable as Silas is. My sister searched high and low for a name she liked for a boy that wasn’t popular. After much searching Silas was it. Then Justin Timberlake named his son Silas, now every where I turn someone is naming their son that.

Now on to this Fabulous and chic look. I wore this to Silas’s birthday party on Sunday and fell in love with it. I literally had my blog posts planned for this week, but, didn’t want to wait to post it. This super fun gingham top is the perfect piece to transition into spring looks. This top paired with cut-off shorts, skirt, or white denim (literally wear all year around) will make for a cute spring look. With the cold temperatures around for the next few weeks, you could pair this with some leather pants and booties. For a night out, grab a super flattering dark jean and a sexy lace up heel. I don’t know what it is about gingham, but I just love it! You can find more tops like this one at stores like Unionbay.

Tonight Brian and I are finally going out to celebrate Valentine’s day and our Anniversary. We haven’t been able to get out yet. He has been super busy at work. We had to tear apart two bathrooms in our condo due to a leak, and we are purchasing some land from my dad to build our dream home. Β Life has been crazy but exciting. I have gotten a lot of feed back regarding my anxiety. Is that something you girls would like me to do a post on?? Let me know. I would be happy to talk about it.

Thanks for stopping by,
