Happy Tuesday!  Now that it’s spring and the weather is finally warming up I’m taking any and every excuse to get out of the house and in the sun.  With all of the pretty lattes and fancy donut excursions that I’ve been on recently (see on my Instagram @theinspirationcloset​), I’ve needed some fun outfits to go with them.  That’s why I’m allover this leopard and hot pink combo right now.  The blazer is so fun and bright, while the pants and top are muted for a nice contrast.  Hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Love,

One of my more recent discoveries has been the cape!  It’s such a great piece to have in your closet because it perfect for layering in a variety of seasons.  In addition, it can instantly dress up something simple like the sweater I’m wearing in this post.  Also, these grey H&M jeans are a MUST buy at $20.  I don’t know what it is about H&M jeans, but I find them to be so comfortable and flattering.  I always get complimented when I wear them.  Owning a grey pair is also a great way to change things up in your wardrobe.  As much as I love classic blue jeans, they can get boring and these are MUCH easier to get away with wearing to the office during my internship.

Black and white is a combination that will never go out of style.  Add a fun print and a pop of color to draw some attention to your look and finish it off with a lipstick that matches your accessories.

The only thing I love more than a holiday party is a formal holiday party.  This white faux fur stole is the perfect accessory to add a little extra glam to any dress in your closet.  I also love tucking it into my coats and wearing it like a collar.  Accessories can make all the difference!  I also like to add a touch of sparkle whenever I go to a party, so I incorporated a shiny hair barrette and bold statement necklace.  What’s your favorite holiday party accessory?

P.s. I linked a few other long lace dresses that I think would be really cute for formal holiday parties!
