Springy fiesta

White off the shoulder top and pink pants outfit

I had no idea what to title this post. "How to wear pink pants?" "Another off the shoulder top?" "I bought these pants in a 4th color?" The earrings and the clutch and the embroidered sleeve felt very fiesta to me, so I just went with springy fiesta. Probably not good for my Search Engine Optimization, but whatever. That's all I got!

How to style pink pants
Outfit details--- Sunnies: Ray Ban | Earrings: Inali Jewelry DesignsTop: Express | Bracelet: Kendra Scott "Candace" | Bag: Stella and Dot "Taj" clutchBottoms: Express "mid rise extreme stretch skinny pants" (in Rose Bud) | Sandals: BP "Luminate" (non patent version here---

Express was having a 40% off sale a couple weekends ago, so I took advantage. I've been buying all the cute tops lately, and this one is no exception. Off the shoulder AND embroidered sleeves? Sign me up! I also find that I have a lack of plain white tops in my wardrobe and this one had such good details, it was tough to pass up. 

I also have these pants in black, beige, burgundy, and herringbone. I really really want them in red, but they are sold out in my size. In the interim, I went ahead and picked up this pinky corral color, which is perfect for spring. I take these in my normal size in Express pants/jeans - a 4 short.

Inali jewelry designs earrings

Last week when I went to that shopping soiree, I picked up these earrings from a local artist/boutique. How beautiful are they?! You guys know I love big, obnoxious earrings! They're extremely lightweight, and since they're multicolor, they will go with all the things. I also love that they're unique and I was able to support a local artist with my purchase. Win/win. Since the earrings are a statement and the off the shoulder neckline is such a statement, I skipped a necklace.

Michael Kors Sofie smart watch
Smart Watch: Michael Kors "Sofie"

Ok, so here's the thing. I wore my Apple watch for a couple of years, but you guys, I *missed* wearing a real watch. I loved having a smart watch, but there are so many pretty watches out there, I felt like I was missing out. For my bonus splurge this year, I decided to get myself a smart watch that looked like a real watch.

I haven't fully synced it yet - I still need to set up my google account, but really the only notifications I'm not getting that I want to be getting on my watch are my text messages. Everything else is already syncing - calendar, baseball, maps. I don't like getting a ton of notifications on my watch except for texts, and then I like being able to see my steps. All that said - so far it's been great. My only complaint is that the first day I wore it, it fell off my wrist twice! The first time, I accidentally bumped my wrist, but the second time, I was just standing there not moving! I was concerned this was going to be a daily occurrence, but knock on wood, it hasn't happened again since that first day. I will keep you posted! 

Spring outfit ideas

And outside of all that, this outfit makes me happy. It screams spring, and the fun clutch and earrings tie it all together in a nice little bow. Such an easy outfit to throw on, but I felt super cute wearing it!
