I was shopping the produce aisles at Whole Foods the other night when I spotted fresh figs! Obviously I get excited at any sign that the weather is warming up and purchased said figs immediately. One of my favorite things to do with figs (besides just eat them!) is to put them in cocktails. Especially Spring cocktail recipes because they have such a delicious flavor to them. This cocktail recipe is super simple and yet has a chic and sophisticated quality to it. Check out the recipe below:
This morning I wanted to share some Spring hair inspiration. The beginning of every season is always a good time to refresh your hairstyle. For Spring, since it’s a pretty busy season for me, I typically lean towards quick hairstyles that don’t require much time but still look cute. One of my favorites is the top knot with the added twist of a small braid. It looks chic and only requires minimal effort!
This is the hairstyle I was telling you about. Super quick and effortless! via pinterest
I recently spotted this Spring look book in InStyle UK and I loved so many of the pieces that I knew I had to share it! Take a peek:

These are my top 5 Spring fashion trends for April that I’m absolutely loving! I’ve been noticing these trends over the past couple of weeks and one of the funnest are these enamel pins (shown below). I love the idea of piling these on to a denim jacket for Spring!! How cute would that be? Check it out:
I’m also loving this Watermelon Pin from Draper James and this Shark Pin from Urban Outfitters.
Ruffled crop top are so cute and better yet they can be worn with almost anything from denim to maxi skirts! This one is from Revolve and it’s on sale!!
Some other ruffle crop tops I spotted are this one from Lover’s + Friends, and this one from ShopBop.
These Wave Crest Ear Climbers are in the shop, available in gold or silver. Love the hammered look, looks like ripples on the water!
You may have spotted this denim jacket on the blog last month. I shared it in a Spring LookBook. I’m still loving it, the more distressed the better!
I love this Straw Tote and it won’t break the bank either. It’s currently on sale!
I’m also loving this Love Summer Straw Tote and this To The Beach Straw Tote, all from Macy’s.
Spring is one of those times of year when you’re ready for lots of fresh produce but at the same time (since it can still be a little chilly) you’re not quite committed to chowing down on crisp salads just yet. I think these 5 Spring recipes give you a good mix of both warm/soothing with some healthy options like Vegetarian Chili! That will still keep you cozy during the beginning of Spring. So now the only question is, are you ready to eat?
These Roasted Squash Bowls via Floating Kitchen offers that perfect mix of warm comfort food with crisp tasty greens
Sea Salt Brownie Cookies via Butternuts – I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but these look so good!!
I loved these new looks from Free People for Spring 2017 that I just had to share! Not to mention the location looks like my dream home (tropical plants, pool and sunshine)!! I’m head over heels for the cover up (shown immediately below!). As well as the off-the-shoulder top in the last picture. I fell in love with the off-the-shoulder trend from last year and I’m very excited that it’s continuing for 2017. Take a peek:
Obsessing over this cover up!
How fun is this top?!

Alessandra Ambrosio’s Spring collection for Ale has dropped and there are a lot of pieces to love! You may remember last year when she came out with her own line of flash tats. Well she’s definitely expanded her line since then. The clothes and accessories have a boho beach vibe that I love!! Take a look:
I’m also crushing on this Gabriela Mini Dress and this Fernanda Top!

embroidered denim // wrap dress // printed pants
baseball cap // wayfarers // striped top // wave jewelry
friendship bracelets // flatforms // iPhone case // tie dye top
When I think of Spring, I often think of it as the defrost setting on my microwave. You’re still a little icy from Winter and not quite warmed up enough for Summer, but you’re getting there! These DIY for Springtime will do just that, help you get into that warm weather mood. Take a peek:
