Jumpsuit: asos | Sunnies: old Banana Republic [similar] | Earrings: Francesca's [similar] | Necklace: Charming Charlie | Bracelet and Watch: Premier Designs | Purse: old but loving this one
    Ever since Tyler told me he thought I'd look good in a jumpsuit and I whipped out my never-worn, tags-still-on, grey one to surprise him in Vegas.. I've been addicted! They are so easy to throw on and you don't have to match a top and bottom. Despite the fact that they're pants, they are usually made with lighter fabric and actually pretty cool - plus, unlike its cousin the maxi-dress your legs don't stick together when it's hot out. Added bonus: I haven't found one yet that is uncomfortable. The only downside I see to these one-piece wonders is the fact that you have to completely undress to go to the bathroom - not exactly my first concern.
    Due to the busy print on this jumpsuit, I kept the necklace simple and went with white arm candy to bring out the white background. Looking back - I wish I had worn my white purse! I'll be the first to admit that the print/color on the purse I chose clashes with the jumpsuit but the handle on my plain rattan purse broke off and I wanted to keep the tropical theme so I grabbed this one on the way out.
    Happy Monday! Here's to hoping you have a great week!

        I discovered Zara through Instagram and although there are [what I would consider] few stores in the US, San Francisco of course has two! The sizing was a little different to get down since it's European, and although it would say the US size, it wasn't always accurate [or the US sizes aren't accurate to begin with - who's for a universal pattern to make all sizes equal?!] but being able to try things on in store helps! Plus I'm pretty sure the website is free shipping and free returns [awesome].
        I currently have a pair of Zara shoes, a shirt my sister hates, and a pair of pants and I'm thinking I need to add one of these cute Spring jackets to my mini Zara collection!
[clockwise from top left]

1. Round Neck Coat With Zip
Let's start with the fact that it's pink. I can envision wearing this casually, or on a romantic night out, or Easter Sunday, or to a wedding, or out to coffee.. or anywhere. It's simple enough to be casual, yet the color and classy lines make this coat elegant as well. My only concern is the cropped arms - not 100% sure about the style especially since I have long arms already! Seriously, they're abnormal.

2. Fabric Coat With Zip
Need a coat to match anything you wear this Spring? This is the jacket for you! Neutrals go with anything and this cute I personally love how they casually paired it with jeans and a simple blouse on the website! The zipper is not my favorite, but that could always easily be changed!

3. Coat With Pockets
I am obsessed with this one. I love the color yellow, so bright and happy, plus the details in the pockets and even the sleeves add an even more fun and modern element [more pictures on Zara's website]! I also love that the zipper starts at about waist-line instead of at the bottom of the coat - this makes sitting down so much easier!

4. Wool Coat in Green
This one is an example of something that doesn't look great on the hanger but looks so cute on [see the pictures on the website]! Made of wool, this is the perfect jacket for those of you who are excited for Spring looks but the weather has cooler plans. Available in both "Tangerine" and my personal favorite; green!

1. Gold Crystal Pave Link Bracelet - Yuni Kelley
I always get complemented on this bracelet! I loved the J. Crew version but not the size [ok.. I also wasn't a fan of the price!] - she makes all different sizes to fit even small wrists like mine!

2. Leopard Loafers - Mindy Mae's Market
Definitely a #LookforLess item! Love the idea of leopard print loafers but don't want to spend crazy amounts of money on a pair of shoes I'll only wear occasionally!

3. Leopard Print Faux Fur Hooded Coat - Maykool
I had a leopard faux fur coat as a child, and if my arms weren't the length of Michael Jordan's, it would still fit! Found this one on Google and love the hood and peacoat-inspired toggle buttons!

4. Foldover Clutches in Pink Pastel and Jade Jewel - K. Slade Made
Clutches are probably the cutest things I have never invested in or worn. Crushing on these foldovers and especially love the tassle detail on the zipper!
