Style Your Spring: April Showers

April is here and you know what that means: time to bust out your boat shoes and pack up the sweaters! For the ultimate fashionable yet fun spring look, check out these six April Showers must haves:


1. Fun Flats or Boat Shoes. We love these Mia pointed cap toe flats and bright-soled boat shoes! Both are easy to take a stroll in without compromising style.

2. Light Jacket or Trench Coat. Everyone needs a trench coat or lightweight jacket in the spring! We love bright trench coats like this onefrom Target. I’m also a big fan of bomber jackets!

3. Statement Necklace. Dress up a simple blouse or t-shirt with a fun, colorful statement necklace like this one from Stella & Dot!

If you’re more of a functional fashionista, check out these fab LoopyQ pouches which are the perfect size for your smart phone, credit cards, keys and lip gloss.  PS- These pouches are handmade by my sister Jay.  The pic below is our adorable Mom!

4. Rain Boots or Gloshes. Don’t let the rain get you down! With these beautiful coral rain boots from Hunter or green glosh booties from Sperry you’ll be ready to be singin’ in the rain!

5. A Fab Umbrella. I love this clear bubble umbrella from Target. Not only does it match with everything, its dome-like shape blocks out all the rain coming at you from the side! The shape also makes the umbrella resistant to being blown inside out when the wind blows in the wrong direction!

6. Bold Lips or Cheeks. The perfect compliment to any spring look is a bold lip or cheek! I personally love peachy coral and pink shades. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes are super pigmented yet natural looking and I love Stila’s conditioning peppermint smelling Color Balm Lipstick. Just remember not to rock both a bold lip AND cheek at the same time. 🙂

What’s on YOUR April wish list?
