Spring in My Step


There’s a certain a girly/tomboy look that has captured my heart as we start to shed those heavy layers for spring. Who can forget the days of Dr. Martens which we may have wanted to forget not so long ago, but somehow in pastel tones they are making a welcomed comeback in my book. Coupled with some old favorite cutoffs, they create the perfect punk rock foundation for a look that calls for some frilly accents to girl it up – doe eyes, a breezy soft chiffon shirt, and some ruffled ankle socks. Welcome, Spring!

Psst! This post was lovingly brought to us by our old friend Sophie! The girl really knows her way around an inspiration board (as we’ve seen here and here) and she’s got some quite followable Instagram (@sophiejaneee) and Pinterest skills as well . She’ll be dropping by to check on us periodically with some more eye candy!

    These Dr. Marten style shoes are in right now. They seem to go with anything as you can get a variety of colors. Black ones would go with jeans or patterned/colored leggings, even velvet leggings, or you could dress down something like a velvet skater dress with these and some tights.
