A perfect pair for this Spring, crop tops and midi skirts. They compliment each other perfectly!

Who said a crop top can’t be tucked in? This is one of my most tried and true styling tips. That added bulk that appears when a shirt is tucked in is so unflattering. Because of this, I love tucking in crop tops! They leave no bulk and keep things sleek.

Print & Texture Mix

Outfits 248Outfits 250

Since crop tops are the rage of the season, this week on SLC I’ll be styling this adorable crop top two ways. First up is pairing it with one of my favorite pairs of pants by LOFT and these stellar sandals by Shoemint.

Spring (and Summer) are the perfect seasons to have fun mixing textures. I loved adding a textured crop top to these sleek (but fun) pants. A couple things I like to keep in mind when styling crop tops: no naval? no problem. Crop tops look classiest when they stop right under the bellybutton. Also, pairing them with dressier seperates helps their case. Which in fact is that they are not fully a shirt.

Floral + Gold

Floral Overall Dress Floral Overall Dress

Printed, light wash denim, dark wash denim…if it’s an overall, chances are I love it. Recently I’ve added overall dresses to my closet and now I can’t imagine spring without them!

I have a few denim overall dresses (you’ll be seeing those on here soon enough!) but these lightweight and flowy styles are by far my favorite. Styling these dresses is easy…a crop top or simple tank and let the print do all the talking. And can we take a moment for these Sam Edelman Gold Oxfords? I mean, these probably won’t be taken off my feet all Spring.

Let’s get fancy with jello. Jello for the adult in age and kid at heart.

If you’ve stuck around here long enough, you know that I love any dessert that’s equally pretty on the eyes and easy in the kitchen.  These Sangria Jello Cups are one of those desserts!

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of strawberry jello
  • 2 cups moscato
  • 2 cups water
  • raspberries and strawberries for garnish

Bring to a boil 2 cups of water. Once bubbling add to powdered jello. Then add in 2 cups of moscato and mix. Pour mix into serving glasses and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. When ready to serve, garnish with fresh fruit.

Flower Power Blouse

Outfits 238Outfits 235

I love a good functional blouse, one that can go from work appropriate to date night chic. I call that type of top a “power blouse”.

Outfits 236Outfits 233It’s easy to imagine how sleek this blouse can look tucked under a blazer, so I wanted to show how to give it a flirty feel that would be perfect for date night or girl’s night. Some killer pumps, a skater skirt and bright pink lipstick…viola!
