I'm back! Excuse the little break in my blogging; things have been pretty busy for me lately. I have started a new quarter at my college, have been building my styling portfolio, have been actively planning my wedding, and just moved. All of this has been super exciting, yet time consuming; however, I am back and excited to continue blogging as much as I can!
Spring is officially here and that means there are a lot of events on everyone's schedules. Ann Taylor and I partnered up to show you how to style the nautical trend for almost any event you have this spring. Below are some of my favorite pieces from Ann Taylor and how you can style all of them.
Look #1: Fun & Flirty
This stripe blazer is sophisticated, but can be made more casual and fun by pairing it with high-waisted tie shorts in a bright summer hue. Adding a basic tee keeps the focus on the blazer and shorts, while a gold necklace incorporates personality. Grey flat form wedges are of-the-moment and add a modern twist to the look.

Look #2: Casual Edge
Stripes and lace-up detailing makes for the perfect not-so-basic tee. This tee can be styled effortlessly with distressed boyfriend jeans and casual sandals. A silver choker necklace adds some shine without competing with the rest of the look.

Look #3: Effortlessly Dressed Up
Who says you need to wear a dress to be dressed up? I am all about a wide leg pant right now in a dressed up material for the spring. Tuck a basic tank into the pants and add silver extras like these classic sandals for an outfit that will easily take you from day to night.
