Spring Preview.

Top: SheIn // Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters // Shoes: TJ Maxx {similar here} // Sunglasses: H&M // Purse: Forever 21 {very similar} // Earrings: Forever 21 {old} // Necklace: Charlotte Russe // Bracelet: Charming Charlie // Lips: NYC Color Expert Last Lipstick in Velvety Fuschia

     Hi and Happy Monday! Ever since receiving this gorgeous top from SheIn in the mail last week, I have been so excited to style it. Charlotte had some milder weather over the weather last weekend, I felt that it was appropriate to break out some of my spring clothes! Spring is my absolute favorite season, and after Valentine's Day if the weather is warm enough, then I'm already back in the spring mindset! 

     This was my first experience with ordering from SheIn. I have heard mixed reviews about this website, but I read a shopping tip on another fashion blog awhile back that suggested to only buy pieces from the site that had user reviews and photos from buyers uploaded. This top had many positive reviews (and the reviews also said to buy it a size larger, which was a great tip!), and it ended up being just fine. I think that if I purchase from SheIn again in the future, I would probably only be interested in reviewed items! 

     What is everyone's plans for the week? I am currently deep in starting to prepare for midterm exams and projects, as well as doing some work on figuring out my plans for post grad life! :-)

     xoxo Miss ALK

  2. I love that top so much! I could wear it with a pencil skirt to the office and out for brunch! (also love that tip, I always love things from there but I'm never sure!)

  3. I love this top on you!
    Those kind of websites make me nervous but I definitely read the reviews first too.
    You look so ready for spring, A!

    xoxo, Jenny

  11. Such a cute Spring outfit! I love that top! Shein is one of my favorites, but I only ever buy pieces with reviews and/or pictures of the products!

  13. I absolutely love your bright, colorful top! I can't wait until spring :)

  14. This is so cute and fun. It's basically spring where I live, and I love it! But I can't wait for the days that I never need to wear a coat or scarf when I go outside. This outfit has me looking forward!

  15. So jealous of your spring weather! I'm down in Tennessee, and although you'd think it'd be warmer since it's in the south, it's definitely not the time for sandals yet! Loving that top, by the way!

    XO, Oksana

  16. Your top is amazing! I adore the print and the hem details.

  17. Your shirt is so fun! I love the colors for spring.

    Best Wishes,

  18. That top is fabulous. I love the cutouts at the bottom! I'm also insanely jealous of how perfect your hair looks in these shots, I'm forever trying to have the perfect photo hair!
