Festival Inspired with DSW

I've said about a million times this season how much I love spring.  I love the colors, I love the weather, but I also love the music festivals!  Whether or not you get to actually attend any of the awesome festivals this spring, you can steal so many great beauty and fashion tips from all the photos we're inundated with!  I love all the bohemian vibes this time of year.  :) 

The trends are so fun to stay up on, and you always want to be in style for these types of events.  Most importantly though, you want to be comfortable.  At festivals, you spend a lot of time on your feet, so comfort is key.  I love these crystal adorned wedges because not only are they easy to walk in, but they're actually comfortable!  They're neutral colors which make them easy to build stylish looks around because they go with just about anything.

I've always been a big fan of the color turquoise.  There was a period in my life where I would have told you it was my absolute favorite color.  It's just so bright and vivid.  The beautiful shade is exactly why I was drawn to this lacy little dress.  It makes you stand out in the most gorgeous way possible. 

Because we're smack dab in the middle of springtime, I (as usual) decided to pair this bright dress with neutral shades.  If I had a bright pink or yellow pair of shoes within reach, I absolutely would've used this occasion to make this look really pop

I love spring for so many reasons, but mostly I love the bright blooms everywhere.  When I saw this wall covered with Bougainvillea, I had to share it with my Gorgeous fam! 

I'm practically living in white jeans this season.  I love pairing them with everything from all white looks to patterned pastels to darker colored pieces.  They're just so crisp and clean looking. 

Another style I'm loving this season is menswear.  I really enjoy a super structured piece that is basically oversized and this watch from RumbaTime is no exception.  The large face and tan leather band make for a truly versatile piece that can be worn with so many looks.  I love the look of menswear style watches, so this one is a major win in my book!
