Raise your hand if you are excited for the return of the blazer vest?! My hand is way up! I loved blazer vests back in the 1990s. They were a great alternative to a blazer on warm summer days. You can wear a layering tee underneath a blazer vest or really dress one up with a body conscious blouse underneath.

Wondering how to style a blazer vest? They are really easy! Blazer vests play well with jeans and shorts on casual days, and then they are perfect for the office on workdays when paired with trousers, trouser shorts, and skirts. I love how blazer vests are structured yet comfortable too. Love them!

In these photos you can see a timeless and casual way to style a blazer vest. I paired mine with a classic white tee and dark wash jeans. I really wanted my new green bag to pop! This outfit has a classic yet 1990s vibe to it, and I love that.

If you are looking for an alternative to a blazer for the office or chic casual days, this is what you need! The blazer vest is perfect for staying professional at work on hot days, as well as looking put together on casual days. I started off with a black one this season, I plan on adding a fun color to my summer wardrobe; it’s just hard to choose which color!

How cute is this summer dress! Since I lost a lot of weight, I am in the process of slowly replacing my wardrobe. One of the items I needed was a casual, go-to summer dress I can dress up or down depending on the occasion. I was thrilled when I spotted this dress, which is available in several colors and is under $50. Love that!

There were so many colors to choose from, but I ultimately chose blue because I love blue! This dress has short sleeves and a flattering twist design at the waist. It fits really well, and I found it to be comfortable for day-long wear. I definitely need to snap up another one in a different color!

It was a cool and casual day when I decided to wear my new dress. To keep myself warm, I opted for my trusty denim jacket and for walking, I chose these funky sneakers. This turned out to be a really comfortable outfit! I normally don’t think of wearing a dress as comfy, but this one shattered my preconceived notion! I look forward to wearing it casually this summer, as well as pairing the dress with wedge espadrilles for a dressier look. It will also look cute with sandals, flip flops, and flats. Love!

If you are looking for a casual dress under $50, I highly recommend this one! There are so many colors to choose from!

The puff sleeve trend is giving me life! I absolutely love finding cute tee’s which are comfortable and fashionable to pair with jeans and shorts. This trend has been going on for a few years now, as you know, and I love how it turns a basic tee into an interesting top which helps make an outfit go from a basic tee and jeans to actual street style. Love!

Since I am still taking care of my foot injury, sneakers are my go-to shoe of the moment. If puff sleeves weren’t a thing right now, I would have a much harder time creating outfits paired with sneakers. The puff sleeves on this tee elevate my outfit so that it isn’t just a boring tee and a pair of jeans, it’s an actual lewk! haha

The colored denim trend is also adding some spice this year since it is a fun way to move away from a regular pair of jeans. While jeans are a mainstay in everyone’s wardrobe, it is nice to have a casual alternative which is comfortable and durable, and on trend! Have you delved into the colored denim trend this year?

I wore this look to go shopping the other day at Santana Row and enjoy lunch at The Yard House. It was comfortable and my foot was happy being in a shoe with proper arch support. I am getting used to wearing sneakers and arch support all the time now, it might be hard to go back to other types of shoes when I am healed! Perhaps I should just live in sneakers now . . .

Which spring trends are you loving right now? Are you loving the puff sleeve trend, or the colored denim trend as much as I am?

Thanks for stopping by!
