Top Spring Sandal Picks

It’s finally starting to feel like spring in PA and I am so ready and excited for the warmer weather. There is nothing better than throwing on a sun dress and a light jacket or cardigan or a cute top with jeans. We always need the perfect pair of shoes to go along with our outfit. I absolutely love shoes too. So I am excited to share with you all some of my top favorite finds for spring sandals. I am going to be sharing my favorite heeled, wedges, and flat sandals.

 

Wedge Sandals

Wedges go great with a pair of shorts and a top or a pair of jeans and a top or even a skirt or dress. You can wear them with so many different outfits. I found the cutest nude wedge from Red Dress Boutique. These sell out really fast, so I also linked the exact same pair from Amazon. You can find almost anything on Amazon. They come in several colors including a leopard and snakeskin. The best part about these shoes is they go with everything and are so comfortable. I wore them around a Disney park for the day and my feet didn’t hurt too much at night. I also linked some cute wedges from Target that are on my list to get next.

Heel Sandals

I love a good heeled sandal to wear with dresses and jeans. It helps to make the outfit look dressier and more formal. My favorite heeled sandals are these black and nude plain strapped heels. I love the block heels on my nude shoes the best since they make walking easier and are more comfortable for longer periods of time. I found mine at Francesca’s last year but they have almost identical ones at Target and Red Dress Boutique. I linked several different options below in different colors too. It’s always great to have one nude pair and one black pair.

I also have a pair of cognac shorter heeled sandals from Prim and Pop Boutique that I absolutely love. They are so comfortable and give you a little height, but aren’t too high of a heel. So if you want to go with something shorter I would recommend these. I also linked some from Target too. You can get my exact pair for 20% off at checkout by using my code: Autumn20. They fit true to size and I wear a size 6.5 or 7 normally.

Flat Sandals

Having several pairs of flat sandals and flip flops are a must for spring. They are the shoe I go for when I want something easy to throw on with dresses or shorts. My favorite pairs of flat sandals are from Target. I have a cognac color flat and a black pair. My cognac ones are still in stock and they have similar ones to my black ones. Amazon also has lots of cute flat sandals as well and I linked my favorites below.

My new favorite small boutique is the Pink Lily Boutique. I am loving all their spring/summer outfits. They have a variety of stuff to pick from. I hope to someday be able to collaborate with them.

I recently went into a small boutique in FL called the Salty Shack. They have really cute beach dresses and on trend styles. I bought the cutest leopard dress from their store. They have lots of dresses, jumpsuits, swimsuits, and shoes as well. You can shop their stuff online as well. I am hoping that they will give me a discount code for you all soon!

 

One of my absolute favorite boutiques is Red Dress Boutique. They have the cutest vacation style clothing. I found several pieces from their store for my cruise.

I got this adorable yellow tassel dress and these super comfortable flatform wedges for under $40 from their store. I also found this cute red floral romper which is on sale right now for under $30. They definitely have a big selection of affordable clothes.

They are great for getting clothing for holiday’s. I cannot recommend them enough!

Favorite Spring Trends and Dresses

Spring is my favorite season and although it still feels like winter in PA, I love getting ready for spring.  I leave for FL on Tuesday and I am so excited for warm weather and sundresses. I love the feeling of being able to throw on a sundress and sandals and head out the door instead of putting five layers on. I know many of you all have wanted Spring Vacay outfit ideas as well so I am excited to share some of my favorite Spring trends, rompers, and dresses. I wear a variety of casual and dressy so I will share some ideas for both. I am also going to share a lot of unique boutiques which I have gotten to work with on spring items and I have coupon codes for you all as well.

I am also going to share a lot of unique boutiques which I have gotten to work with on spring items and I have coupon codes for you all as well.

 

The biggest trend coming back this spring/summer are florals. I have seen floral patterns on everything from swimsuits to dresses to rompers and tshirts. My favorite boutique to shop for springs floral rompers, dresses, and suits is Red Dress Boutique. I found this adorable yellow floral dress with tassels on the ties for under $50 for our trip to Mexico. I am wearing a size small in the dress and it does fit a little small, so I would size up. Also, how adorable is this black floral skirt from Francesca’s?! This skirt is the perfect length and fits true to size. It goes with so many tops and has the cutest floral pattern on it. I am wearing an XS in it. The Pink Lily Boutique also has several floral patterned dresses and rompers as well. I linked my favorites below.

 

Polka dots and pastels are coming back again this spring as well. I am a huge polka dot and pastel person. I think it adds such a nice feminine touch to any outfit. I just ordered a light blue polka dot romper for FL from Pink Lily Boutique. They have lots of cute polka dot rompers and suits. Amazon also has some great polka dot dresses and suits as well. I also own this cute black and white polka dot top from Shein. The only thing with buying from Shein is it’s a hit or miss on sizing, material, and the shipping takes awhile.

 

Leopard prints and stripes are in this spring. I love a little pop of leopard myself on an outfit. Prim and Pop Boutique has the cutest scrunchies including a leopard one. You can use my code: Autumn20 at checkout to get 20% off and free shipping. Pink Lily Boutique has a lot of cute leopard and striped tops, dresses, and rompers. If you sign up for their VIP list for the first time you can get 20% off. Red Dress Boutique also has some cute leopard and striped clothes, especially their leopard wedges are so cute.

 

Maxi dresses and jumpsuits are in this spring. Although I am too short for most jumpsuits, I have noticed that the jumpsuits from Pink Lily Boutique fit shorter girls as well. I will link a couple of my favorite jumpsuits below as I know not all of you all are short like me. I love a good maxi dress and Red Dress Boutique always has the best ones. This coral floral maxi dress is one of my favorites for spring. It has two slits on the sides and fits me well with 3-4 inch heels. You do need to wear a half tube top underneath the top part of the dress as it is see through. I am wearing a size small in this dress and their dresses fit true to size.

 

Chambray is also another big trend this year. I have seen a lot of chambray tops, rompers, dresses, and shorts. American Eagle and Aerie have a lot of Chambray clothes this year. I found a cute romper while shopping in there the other day. The thing I love about Chambray is how soft and comfortable it is. I linked a couple options below.

 

If you’re looking for more of a casual look. Cropped jean shorts and plain tees are coming back again. American Eagle has a lot of great shorts in different colors and options. Their shorts are usually under $50 and a lot of times they will do a buy one get one 50% off deal on them. I wear a Gap Factory has a lot of cute V Neck tees for $10. I wear an XS in their tees. I linked several of my favorite shorts and tees below and will be sharing some I own while in FL next week.

 

You always need shoes to complete the outfit, so I wanted to share some of my favorite sandals with you all along with the spring shoe trends. My favorite summer sandals this year are from Prim and Pop Boutique. They are a cognac suede and have a small heel on them. The sandals are so comfortable and are under $40, plus you can use my code: Autumn20 at checkout to get 20% off + Free Shipping. I wear a size 7 in shoes normally and these fit true to size. Flatforms are the trend this year and are a mix between a wedge and flat. I love my taupe flatform wedges from Red Dress Boutique. I can wear them with any outfit. They are under $40 and fit true to size. They have a lot of different colors and styles of flatforms as well. If you’re looking for a classic nude or black heeled sandal you can also find some on Red Dress. I linked my favorite spring shoes below including my favorite flip flops.

Hope you all have a great start to spring and are able to enjoy some warm weather! Thanks for checking out my blog and come back next week for my favorite spring date ideas. Have a great weekend!

A swimsuit style that has come back this year is floral and off the shoulder. You will see this style in every store. I got this cute floral off the shoulder suit in FL at a suit boutique. It is a Seafolly brand which is a really nice quality brand. They don’t have this exact suit on their site, but a lot of other floral one pieces. I will link a couple here below of my favorite floral one pieces.

You will also see a lot of high waisted two pieces and also neutral two pieces with some fun scalloping and embroidered patterns on them. I found this cute embroidered two piece in FL as well and it is a Seafolly brand too. The off the shoulder two piece look is going to be a big trend this spring/summer. I also found this cute flounce top and palm tree high waisted bottom suit on Amazon for under $30. You can shop more of my Amazon Suits here!!!!

Another important part of your suit is your cover up and beach bag. I wanted to share with you all some of my favorites for that. I have several linked here on my resort page from Amazon. My favorite cover up I wore on our cruise recently was from Amazon and I found it for under $15.

 

I hope you all enjoyed my round up of suits and can enjoy some warmer weather soon! Stay tuned this coming week for my top picks of sundresses and trends for spring. Have a great weekend!

Cruise to Mexico

We had such an amazing time on our cruise and I wanted to share some of the highlights with you all and also share about Royal Carribean and why we will continue to cruise with them. I am also going to share some of my favorite outfits I wore during the trip as well as some of the adventures.

 

We chose Royal Carribean as our cruise ship since we found out that in December through January they run a special of buy one get the second guest 60% off. So we got an incredible cruise for a bargain. We stuck with the inside cabin of our ship which was still very nice and spacious. Our ship was the Independence of the Seas which had just been remodeled last year. There were so many different events and activities to do on our ship including: Shows, Music, Art Auctions, Laser Tag, Arcade, Pools, Hot Tubs, Dance Parties, and even ice skating. We were very impressed with the entertainment level on Royal Carribean. Our favorite show was the musical Grease they had on board. We also enjoyed some dancing at the silent disco which is like a dance party, but with head phones and the ability to switch between two stations for two different types of music. This was one of the highlights from the ship since they played a lot of the classic party dance tunes. We also enjoyed the pool area and the hot tubs. There were two pools for adults and also two hot tubs as well.

 

The other amazing part of our trip was the food on the ship! We had assigned dining in the evenings and the food was always delicious and the service was amazing. We had the sweetest servers for our table. There was a formal night where we got to dress up and I wore this gorgeous floral maxi from Red Dress Boutique. They also had a great buffet for breakfast that we ate at as well as a pizza place. The pizza was so good and they even made me a gluten free pizza with vegan cheese so I could enjoy it. They had specialty dining, however we did not try any of that.

 

We also did some exploring in the two ports we stopped in Mexico including, Cozumel and Costa Maya. In Cozumel we went to the mainland of Mexico to see a mayan ruin called the Coba Pyramid and a Grand Cenote as well. The ferry to get over to the main land was not very fun though and you will need to take dramamine before it and also sit in the back of the ferry on the deck as well. They had to send one lady to the ER due to getting so sea sick from the ride. We then took a bus to a local mayan shop and the pyramid. The Coba Pyramid was such a neat experience with a lot of history and culture. We got to climb the pyramid which was a little scary, but worth the view at the top. The Cenote was a sink hole made up of limestone rock and it was really neat. We swam in the water which wasn’t too cold but definitely deep. In Costa Maya, we went to a local beach which was stunning and ate some authentic chicken tacos and chips. The food was really good and is less spicy than US Mexican food which I liked.

 

 

We had two days of just cruising which was so nice and relaxing. We spent lots of time laying out in the sun, walking around the ship, eating lots of food, and going to shows.

 

For most of the dinners, I wore a dress, skirt and top, or a romper. I wore comfortable sandals and wedges along with a cute straw bag I found on Amazon for $30. I linked all of my outfits, accessories, and beach essentials from the cruise here below.

We had an amazing time in Mexico and on our cruise! We would highly recommend sticking with Royal Caribbean. They did such an amazing job and are the best cruise we have been on yet.

 

Hope you all have an amazing week!
