Blazer: Forever21 | Heels: Charlotte Russe

Adding a splash of color to your wardrobe is always a plus, especially if you add white denim to the mix.

Today, our favorite dread head Acira, stops by the blog to show off her latest spring outfit. She teams her white denim pants with a lovely multi-colored plaid blouse and matching blazer.

Honestly, we love this color combination! The white mixed with the other pastel colors look great together.

For example, Acira’s soft colored blouse compliments the simplicity of the blazer perfectly, adding an chic touch the denim jeans. Through the blouse, she further picks up the color in her navy, chunky heel platforms.

So, how do you feel about this particular look? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below.

“In my heart, I was reincarnated from the 1920s. I love how in the 1920s, prints and solids were in style!  With this look right here, I wanted to mix in my own swag!” -MyAsia

There’s nothing  that screams spring more than pastel colors. If you are ready to channel your inner Robyn Fenty with contrasting pastel colors, this post is for you.

Today, MyAsia shows us how to incorporate pastel-inspired pieces into her wardrobe.

Notice the color scheme chosen. The yellow shawl, pink blouse, and light blue skirt play off each other quite well. Remember, if you are going for something bright, try contrasting colors. MyAsia states, “Pastels in my opinion are like the pure colors to white.  Although you can’t wear them with everything, but you can definitely make a statement.”

MyAsia chose to break her pastel pieces up with a pair of floral wedges. She states, “To break up the pastels I through some patterns in with the shoes, to give it a even balance from head to toe.”

Overall, we love this look MyAsia! Not only does it  match the mood of the season, it’s also very eye-catching.

So how do you like this particular look?

Heels: Zara

Dressing up a graphic tee is a simple way to take an outfit from really casual, to semi-formal.  Ladies, this can be accomplished by styling your favorite spring dress or skirt with a your favorite heels.

Take, for instance, Dyandra Raye’s featured look. As shown above, Dyandra wore her simple graphic tee with a full length skirt and cutout pumps.

Maybe the word simple is a stretch, but this shirt was purchased from an international online store, TABBIES. Check them out at www.tabbiesonlinestore.com.

The shirt itself screams versatility, as it can be worn with almost anything. Simply tie the front, and you’ll have a very season appropriate top.

Now, you are probably  wondering where Dyandra found the stylish skirt? Straight from Dyandra’s mouth, this is actually a vintage skirt. Yes, vintage! She actually had the skirt altered, adding the long slit.

Overall, we love this look. It’s very elegant and fun at the same time!

Shirt: H&M | Shoes: Steve Madden

Whether you’re spending the evening with someone special or heading to happy hour after work, there’s nothing wrong with showing a little skin.

Recently, we had a chance to meet up with our homegirl Kira. The last time we checked in with her, Kira was styling her floral blazer with a matching two piece dress.

Today, it’s all about leather. More specifically, leather shorts. Similar to denim, black leather can be worn with almost anything. It’s the perfect alternative to casual wear.

For this particular outfit, Kira decided to style her comfy leather shorts with a cute thrifted blazer and top.

This is definitely a very fun, flirty look. Her SASSEY suede lace-up stiletto heels from Steve Madden make a nice addition as well.
