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!

Everywhere you turn this spring, it's hard not to come across one of the season's hottest pieces - the nautical striped top. Whether short sleeved or long sleeved, woven or knit, classic or edgy, a variation of this top seems to be in every store right now.{}

No matter what floats your yacht, this style is an essential staple for any spring wardrobe. Here are five different ways to wear it - one for every Fashion Feng Shui essence. For these sets, I used the DAY Birger et Mikkelsen Striped T-Shirt from Net-A-Porter.com, which I learned is unfortunately is no longer available. But the looks would work with any naut-y striped tee you can find!

OK, I know I can't have all five essences, but I seriously want every single one of these outfits for all my intention setting needs during these fresh and fun months. Happy Spring!
