fuchsia fever

IMG_4827

These shoes, a recent find at, yet again, Kohl’s have me totally feeling fuchsia fever. As much as I love my tights, I’m totally happy that it’s warm enough to enjoy some sun, warm weather, and all the outdoor activities that we miss during Chicago winters. My current favorite outdoor activity, when I can squeeze it in? Sitting outside, reading a book, and hanging in our hammock. Fuchsia fever, indeed, and spring fever!

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I balanced these very feminine high heels with a “boyfriend” cut blazer, which added a nice balance to the look. Spring and summer are probably the easiest seasons to go from “coffee to cocktails.” I always add a blazer to my sleeveless tops for work, and then ditch the blazer for any after-work activities (generally shopping, ha!). My fastest go-to outfit in spring and summer is sandals, sleeveless top, skirt, and blazer. Seriously, there’s basically no thought involved and helps me get out the door on time to get to work!

2) Black blazers are definitely my standard go-to blazer, though lately, I’ve really tried to branch out and consider blazers in other colors! I tend to find the majority of my blazers on Rue La La and via thrift stores. For whatever reason, blazers are really easy to thrift- Goodwills and Salvation Armys have a LOT of blazers. Even if you find a full suit, you can either keep or re-donate the skirt, if you don’t want a full suit. I often thrift suits and wear the jacket and skirt as separate pieces.

Anyone else have a go-to outfit in spring and summer? Happy Monday, all! I hope everyone had a good weekend!
