How to Add Spring Flavor to Your Winter Style

On January 1st, I woke up feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready for Spring, but it’s still winter. Did that happen to you too? Once the new year hits, I want to shed all signs of fall and winter. Since, it’s still cold, though, here are a few things I do to infuse spring elements into my winter style.

What I’m Wearing:

Tunic (old, similarsimilar) | Leggings c/0 (on sale, similarsimilar) | Head wrap

Oxfords c/0 (option, option) | Mac Liptensity “Ambrosial”

The Wrap Life Marigold Head Wrap

1. Start wearing spring colors now. If we have to wear layers, might as well choose layers in our favorite spring hues. Bright yellow is one my favorite colors to wear in the warm weather season. This The Wrap Life head wrap made it so easy for me to add a hint of yellow to this look

2. Reach for black leggings. So far, I have survived this entire cold weather season without wearing tights. I low key dislike tights, so I have several pairs of black leggings, which can be worn as pants or under a dress or tunic.

3. Brighten up your beauty routine with spring colors. Mac Liptensity lipstick in Ambrosial is perfect for doing just that. By the way, did you get your hands on anything from Mac’s re-release of the Selena collection? I bought the Dreaming of You lipstick.

Weekend Getaway Style Complete with Affordable Duffel Bag

I feel so ready to tackle this week after a relaxing staycation I’ll be sharing more about later. Today’s post highlights my weekend getaway style on travel day. I give considerable thought to what I wear when I travel because I like to feel comfortable while looking polished. Remember my airport style here, here, and here? Each look was anchored by comfy knits and light layers for adjusting to any climate. My weekend travel look relied on that same style formula.

I tossed on my most comfortable pair of jeans (under $30), a white tee, a moto jacket, and flat loafers. And, just like that, I was ready for a day on the move.


By the way, I packed all of my essentials in my favorite duffel bag. I usually rock this bag as my personal item when traveling by plane (see how here). It’s such a luxe-looking bag in this dark cognac color. But, since it’s made of faux leather, it actually retails for under $70! I find this size perfect for a weekend getaway, but there is a similar larger duffel bag for those that require more room.

How to Secure Your Jewelry When Traveling

One of my major goals for 2016 was to travel more. So, I’ve embraced every opportunity to do so this year. Of course, as a style enthusiast, I like to make sure that I always have the right outfit for every occasion on my trips. Naturally, that also means that I always want to have the perfect jewelry to complement those outfits. Up until this year, I thought I had an iron clad packing system. I realized, though, that packing and safely traveling with jewelry can be tricky. Here are the top 5 things that have helped me keep my jewelry safe while traveling.

1. Pack only the essentials. For me, that means taking jewelry that complements multiple outfits.


2. Pack jewelry in an organizer that keeps pieces separated and also safe from physical damage in route.


3. Pack jewelry in a carryon bag. I actually prefer to travel with carryon luggage only. During the holidays, with a larger volume of travelers, there’s an increased chance that checked luggage could be lost.


4. Once at a destination, store jewelry in a safe when not wearing it. Locking valuable pieces away gives peace of mind.


5. Before traveling, evaluate any available travel protection. Some insurance plans extend coverage to travel. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have more. And, Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company offers worldwide jewelry protection plans that cover repair and replacement costs in the unforeseen event of theft or damage to jewelry.
