I’m officially beyond excited spring is here and summer is coming. There’s nothing I love more than a beautiful spring day spent outdoors. Give me a good outfit, some vitamin D and a cute hangout spot and you’ve got a few of my favorite things for spring! Seriously everything about this shoot and in these photos are some of my favorite things! Add some tacos and guac and I think that should cover it! 😉
So lets chat favorite things! First up the outfit. Every piece of this outfit is currently on heavy rotation.
Spring Outfit Favorites:
Pink & White Stripe Top: This pink & white stripe top has been worn over and over and over this spring! I picked it up (really looking for a pink & white stripe off the shoulder top) but found this one for less than $9 at Forever 21 and grabbed it instead. Obviously I have a thing for light pink and stripes are a classic so hello perfect!
I had THE hardest time finding this top or tops super comparable to this one, but I did find a lot of other super cute pink and white striped tops in lots of different styles! If you’re needing some pink and white in your life, take a scroll through these!
Overall Jumper: I’m a huge fan of the overall trend and this little white skirted one is too cute! I ordered it for the Knoxville store and we sold out in just a few days! We reordered and are already sold out again! We’re going to be reordering it again for online so stay tuned if you want one! They’re under $50, go with everything and I’m in love! You’ll be seeing it next as a swimsuit coverup and again, it’s perfect! I’m obsessed! (See this one here)
I’ll be sure to share when we do restock on instagram and on my instastory! Be sure you’re following me here!
Basket Bag: I truly can’t believe how much use I’ve gotten out of this little basket bag! I seriously love carrying it as a purse and love how it gets so many compliments and questions! The best was, “what’s in the basket?” Me: “oh just my stuff, it’s my purse.” Him: “oooooo I thought there was a hamster or something in there!” lololol. This one I purchased last summer but this one is almost identical and so cute!
Straw Hat: Ok you’ll be seeing this hat a lot over here this summer so I apologize in advance for the obsessive over wearing of it. It’s just so good and it looks good with every outfit! #cantstopwontstop If you’re looking for a good quality straw hat for the summer, this Brixton one is a must! I tend to get a few cheap ones that fall apart by the end of the season but this one is good quality and I know it will last! Also, if you’re like me and have a big head, these run big too so they’re guaranteed to fit! This one is a medium and is still roomy on my melon!
Scarf & Earrings: Accessories are always a favorite of mine and this little scarf is totally on my favorite list right now! I’ve been wearing it around my neck, in my hair and tied on my basket! It’s seriously the cutest little thing and the colors are my favorite for spring! Anthropologie has other pretty patterns I’m thinking about picking it up in another I love it so much! And these beaded three tier ball earrings are another favorite! I have them in a coral and a blush pink and they’re what I reach for most days! They’re summery yet classic at the same time! Not to mention they go with everything! (They’ll be launching online at mykindoflovely.com very soon!)
Spring Favorite To-Do’s:
Girl Time: I love any excuse to get together with my girls but especially love spending some girl time having an outdoor drink! I’m making that my motivation for getting all my morning workouts in, so when the opportunity arises I can have an after work glass of wine with a girlfriend!
Food Trucks: I love a good food truck park and love trying out what they have to offer! This time around it was a crepe from Smart Crepes and omg, it was so delish! I’m typically a more savory than sweet person but for crepes I’m all about the sweets! I went with a strawberry/banana/nutella crepe and it was divine. I’m still daydreaming about it!
Local Outdoor Fun: Once the weather warms up I seriously love being outside and I want to be outside all day everyday! Fun, local outdoor hangout places are my jam. They’re my happy place! I love a good Beer Market, concert or festival in a park or just hanging out in Market Square or downtown for the Farmer’s Market. So when Knoxville’s Filling Station became a thing I was so excited! It’s the perfect little casual hangout. You can bring friends, family and kids! Everyone is welcome and I can’t wait to bring Jared and go back with my friends! Knoxville peeps, you should definitely check it out this weekend if you’re around!
