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,

Nicole ♡

Happy Monday!  Things are finally starting to warm up around here which means that it’s time to break out the trench coat!  I got this one from Zara during one of their big sales and I love the way it curves to your figure rather than being boxy like some others that I’ve tried.

Tip: A quick fix for a trench coat with a long belt is to tuck it under itself.  it’s both functional and looks fashion forward!  Have a great week everyone!

When you’re in that awkward transitioning period between winter and spring it can really hard to come up with outfits to accommodate the weather.  Particularly in March and April I find that it’s common (in NJ) to have one day that’s really cold and the next day it can be 70 degrees or more.  We have been experiencing a lot of that in the past week.  It snowed on Monday and by Wednesday it was 78 degrees outside!

I find that it’s really easy to fall into the “what do I wear?” trap during these months because the temperature is just so inconsistent.  One of my go-to transitioning looks is to wear a sweater and jeans of the same color hue paired with bright spring-like accessories.  I love the way the pink bag and green necklace pop against the gray!  What’s your go-to spring transition outfit?

Hi girls!  Now that we’re approaching my favorite warm weather season, I can spend less time inside under a blanket and more time outside blogging!  This is a little bit of a different kind of outfit post than you’re used to seeing, so I’d love to hear some opinions on it!  Do you prefer style posts that have a photo shoot-esque kind of look to them, or do you like the traditional posts you’ve been seeing from me throughout this year?  By the way, how cute is that milk bottle? I found it in the Target dollar section!  Lemonade is one of my favorite summer drinks ever.

If you haven’t noticed by now, pink is definitely my favorite color!  This light pink sweater is from last year from Garage clothing.  As much as I love it, I was kinda hoping to ditch it by now (you know with it being spring and all).  However, unfortunately, although we have had plenty of warm days there are still a few chilly ones thrown in there.  April in NJ is a total tease.  What can you do right?

Love,
