Spring is in the Air Blog Challenge Day 2

Today is the second day of Amber and my blog challenge! Thanks so much to those of you who linked up yesterday! If you didn't, it's not too late to start!

Today's question is

2. What's your favorite spring outfit {or two}?
(March 22)

For me, I like taking inspiration from my favorite stores' premade outfit suggestions, and I've found some great ones so far. 

From LOFT,


I love the dress with the jacket over it as well as the sandals. I'm thinking about buying the sandals, and I'm still milling over the dress. It's been on my life for a while.


From Banana Republic,


I like the classic put together look of the cropped black pants, and I've seen a lot of colorful scarves carrying over to this spring's trends.


From anthropologie (my all time favorite)


I legitimately love everything about this outfit. I love the layering, the dress, and the hat. I want a fedora, but I'm not sure I have the look to pull it off. I think on my to do list will be to try one of the trends this season that I'm not so sure about.


Right now, I'm debating between three trends:
1. socks with wedges
2. the fedora
3. the maxi dress


What do you think about socks with wedges? Have you seen this mixed into a bunch of looks this season? I've always heard that it was terribly off limits, but between the March InStyle and a bunch of fashion bloggers, I'm thinking that it's something to give a whirl. Am I crazy?


I hope you'll link up with your favorite outfit(s) of spring. It can be something you already own or some that you've had your eye on and are thinking about creating your own from. Can't wait to see what you pick! Just paste your link below!



PS I'm back and on spring break, and I'll be catching up on blog reading, commenting, and replying today! Can't wait to see what you've all been up to!

Check out my post today (it's scheduled for later)...it's all about Maxi dresses ;) I LOVE THEM! They are just uber comfy and cute with a pattern...Trina Turk has great ones, but you have to get them on sale because they are rather expensive...try ebay or sales racks :)

P.S. Love your outfits! I am so ready for spring :)

The Loft outfit is great. I am totally digging purples and pastels for spring.

Hummm socks with sandals...
Honestly, I'll never do it, just because I've been taught that you never wear socks with sandals, there is something about the look that just doesn't sit well with me. ... if you feet are cold enough to wear socks then you shouldn't be wearing sandals, at least that's how I take it. Plus I like to show off my pedicure when I wear sandals, so yea.. no socks :-)

But the maxi dresses are love at first sight! :-)

You just listed my top three favorite stores. Socks w/ wedges? Cute if you are under a "certain age!" I am now following you. xo

Oooh, I don't know how I feel about socks with wedges.. I think some people (models on runways and in fashion mags) pull on crazy things that they shouldn't. If you can though, more power to ya!
But I LOVE the fedora, colorful scarves and maxi dresses! :)
