Easy Spring Style

Fine and Feathered - Easy Spring Style

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get to meet the amazingly talented Samantha Jay. We got together and she shot some photos of me in three of my favorite spring outfits at one of my absolutely favorite places, Longwood Gardens!

This is such a simple spring look, but one of my favorites. I love that it can easily go from work to out to drinks with friends without feeling too stiff or dressy, but still completely pulled together (I guess as long as you can wear jeans to work, which shouldn't we all be able to wear jeans to work by now??).

Also I'm not sure if I should apologize that almost everything came from Target? But I mean, come on, their spring stuff has been on point! Also, just to clarify, I am in no way sponsored by them, I just seriously spend way too much time in there - they're my go-to these days.

New Tricks

Fine and Feathered Blog

Lately I've been getting this itch to play around with something new. That's one of my favorite parts of having a blog, the excuse to try something new and just say "oh, I'm doing it for the blog!" even though my blogging is sporadic at best these days. I love learning new tricks. Even though teaching yourself something new can be a little frustrating at times, it's always so rewarding when you finally break through and start understanding something you couldn't even wrap your head around a few days before.

Some of you may remember I played a tiny bit with video in the past, but never did much with it. I've really been loving diving into youtube lately and learning new things, and I have just been amazed at some of the things you can do with video these days. Now that there are tons of people already doing it, I thought it would be fun to learn a little from them and play with my own videos.

I love the idea of including little videos with outfits because I always wonder how bloggers outfits really wear in real life (is that comfortable? Can she even move in that?). So here you are. My favorite go-to outfit this spring. It's one of those ones that certainly isn't groundbreaking, but I really do wear it all the time and feel great, and totally comfortable all day long in.

Let me know what you think! Do you like seeing outfit videos or are you just all about the pics? I am really going to try to push myself to make more videos and share both on here and on my youtube!

Field Day

This top has been playing on repeat in my closet majorly this summer.

It's the perfect mix of cool (as in super lightweight so I'm not sweating too bad), and comfy. I also love being able to throw it on with shorts and not feel like a total bum.

The backpack though is still my favorite addition this summer. I honestly don't know how I got along without a cute, easy backpack, especially for traveling. It perfectly fits my little crossbody, a waterbottle, and a book, so it's perfect for flying, and I even took it on a short hike!
