Do I have anywhere to go right now? Nope. Am I going to put together a spring lookbook anyway to pass my time in quarantine? Hell yeah.
So, it’s been a weird year so far, hasn’t it? I certainly haven’t been leaving my house to go shopping, partly because I have no income, and also because I’m not really supposed to leave unless it’s to get groceries or medication. With that being said, a lot of my items today are things I already owned or purchased a while ago, or things that I received in my spring Fab Fit Fun box (gracefully paid for as a gift by my mother.) I hope you find this article enjoyable, and it adds a bit of brightness into your day!
If you read my review of the spring Fab Fit Fun box, you probably remember me sharing all about this cozy, loose cardigan. I was shocked to see that it normally retails for $99, but it is nice. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve worn it every single day since I received the box! I love this ribbed cardigan because it’s very light and neutral, making it ideal to dress up or down a wide variety of outfits. One of my favorite things to pair with the cardigan is this white lace dress, which I wore to my high school graduation years ago. I definitely can’t afford anything else from this brand, but I’m really loving this item I received and I’m looking forward to wearing it into the warmer months!
I’ve also been getting really into florals lately, and one of my absolute favorite dresses is this gorgeous flowery gown from Marshalls. I bought it about three years ago, but I still love wearing it every year and finding new ways to dress it up and down. One pairing I’m particularly enjoying is the dress with my favorite wedges, which I also picked up at Marshalls a while ago. If I had any sort of reason to leave my house or go to a formal event, this is exactly the outfit I would wear. Especially since my boyfriend is 6’3”, I have to rely on high heels to catch up to him!
For the days when the weather is still a bit chilly, or I just feel like being cozy, I’ve been absolutely loving this colorblocked sweater from the Salvation Army. On trend with spring, I’ve been loving pastels and soft aesthetics lately, and this sweater is perfect for the occasion. I’ve even been enjoying modeling my makeup after the color scheme of this sweater, particularly the mints and the purples. It’s really a cute, funky piece, so I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of this awesome sweater.
For holding essentials, I’m really loving this book-themed canvas bag my mom gave me for Christmas. As you can see, it has the names of several classic novels on the side- several of which I love myself! I’ve been using this bag a lot lately, because my 1984-themed tote is literally falling apart at the seams. Maybe down the road I’ll make a What’s-In-My-Bag article; what do you guys think?
Lastly but certainly not least, this mint Grace Karin dress is the perfect combination of sweet vintage and pastel springy goodness. Considering I bought this dress on Amazon, I’m really impressed with the quality and how well it has held up over the last couple of years. I really love the Grace Karin brand, and I think they consistently put out well-made, gorgeous dresses.
Anyway, that’s my spring lookbook for 2020! I hope you found this interesting and informative. Remember to keep safe and stay inside as often as you can!
