Spring with SheIn

So we had a few days there that really felt like spring! And then we quickly turned back to snow. Am I crazy to say that sometimes I like those little bursts of spring in the middle of winter? I know, it's not natural, it's global warming, it's confusing...but it's also hopeful. It's a little reminder that even in the coldest, darkest days, there's a chance for some unexpected light and warmth. And who couldn't use that reminder every now and again?

If spring sneaks up on us again, you can find lots of great last-minute, on-trend, affordable pieces at SheIn. Now, I'm all for splurging on some classic pieces that will really add to your wardrobe and last a long time (like my favorite handbag pictured above). But it's also nice to snag some fast, inexpensive fashion to keep up with the trends and keep up with a budget. I was so excited when SheIn reached out about a collaboration because I was really in the mood to buy a few things to mix up my wardrobe. 

This little window pane coat is perfect for these in-between, indecisive months. Is today going to feel like winter or spring? Doesn't matter because this jacket can be layered or worn lightly. It's not lined, which gives it a lightweight feel, but the actual fabric does have some heft. Although it's described as a coat, I would classify it as a jacket or cardigan. All in all, a great option for only $28! 

After receiving this jacket in the mail, I decided to order a few more things (on my own) from SheIn. I was a little nervous to order this $12 bikini (yes, $12), but I LOVED the print and I thought 'what the heck?' If it doesn't work out, no major harm done. But I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and fit of the suit (I am usually a small top, medium bottom in suits. I ordered the medium, and while the top fits a bit wide and the straps aren't adjustable, it fit just fine!).

I also purchased this little off the shoulder number because I thought it would be breezy and light for our honeymoon in St. Lucia. I'll admit, I have another swimsuit and breezy dress on the way. 

I hope you all find a little something to enjoy each day, whether it's cold and snowy or bright and sunny. It's never a bad time to remind yourself that not every day is a enjoy 'em while you got 'em.
