The Scoop

I'm on the prowl for spring fashion! And I think I am on to some really fun new things. I thought I would share what I am loving right now that will take me through spring and summer!

Most of these things were something I dabbled in last spring and summer but I am seeing them bumped up a little on the style scale. First, scarves.  I wear them around my neck, wrist, in my hair, around my waist and even tied on my bags. This year they have some fun shapes and sizes so I tied one on the handle of my bag for a fun twist. Second, platforms. I am going crazy over these platform sneakers. They are so cute with jeans, shorts, skirts, and dresses! Obsessed. The next thing I am embracing even more fully than before (if that can happen) is tunics (longer tops). They have such a casual relaxed vibe but with all the colors and styles they are a major staple for me.  You can wear them with the hem out, assorted tucks or even as a dress if they are long enough. Fill my closet please!

My Look

In this look I am wearing  a tunic that buttons half way down in neutral stripes. I did a front tuck with this look but sometimes I pull the hem through my belt loop on the side. This is a perfect anytime top. My jeans are Lucky Brand skinny cropped jeans, shoes are platform Steve Madden sneakers and I'm carrying a Tory Burch tote with a scarf from target wrapped around the handle.  You can see the care tag still on my scarf. For some reason I hate to cut those off but I think I will have to in this case. I'm wearing a white watch and Kendra Scott turquoise earrings to complete this look.

Making Camo Feminine

Camo

Feeling feminine in a masculine pattern.

the scoop

I grew up in an area where people hunted and camo was worn for that purpose. I never really thought of wearing camo until the last few years of watching it being transformed into so many fun outfits. I now have this pattern in a tee, shirt, jacket and jeans. I love them all and find them so versatile. I have found that I can put together really feminine looks now and it's fun.

Now is a great time to get a field jacket. Linking several below, all on sale. Perfect to tie around your waist outside but put on in the cold resturants and shops.

thinks I've lost is again!

my look

For this look I am wearing a black tee dress. It is just tee shirt material with a relaxed fit and slit pockets on the sides. A favorite dress for me. I added a camo jacket since we have not even made it to the 70s most days here in the mountains. I wore a pair of platform espadrilles, and a pink cap to add feminine touches. I carried an old picnic basket for a tote to complete my look.  

Linking fun options for dresses, sneakers and bags! All on sale!

And now I'm inviting you to join my group board titled Style Wise. Check it out here. It was created just a few weeks ago and needs some more inspiration so if you are a fashion and style blogger and would like to be a contributor let me know in the comments section of this post or by sending an email to northwestmountainliving@gmail.com or you can DM me @northwestmountainliving.
