Spring Break (For Realz)

I hope you guys had a great Spring Break! Here are just a few thoughts… If you’re dragging after that week, you are not alone. If you looked at Facebook and Instagram and thought everyone else had a better Spring Break than you, you are not alone. If Spring Break mentally wore you out because you stressed over your kiddos falling off the ski lift or breaking a bone, you are not alone. If you ended up in the ER with a kiddo, you are not alone. If you stayed home because money is tight and you felt like everyone else was on a fantastic vacation, you are not alone. If you realized, once again, vacation with kids is really a trip, you are not alone. If you really love ski school because you get to hang out without the kids but miss them and worry about them constantly (I’m working on this), you are not alone. If you loved Spring Break and it was just what you needed even though you had all of the feelings above, you are not alone. Ha! Anyway, these are just a few things I heard from my friends, and I thought I’d share because I could relate to each one of them in my own way and they made me realize I was not alone. I’m glad to be back.

I’ll be taking the next 7 days off for Spring Break, so I thought it would be fun to leave you all with some outfit inspiration! If you all would like to give me a little bit of outfit inspiration while I’m gone (I need ideas, too!), use the hashtag #cstyleinspo and tag @cstyleblog! It would make my day!

In the spring, I love to wear sleeveless tops with jeans and then wear a jacket on top. That way I can shed the jacket when it’s hot and wrap it around my waist. This Madewell sleeveless top is my favorite. I wear it to work out, too. Is that gross? Oh well.

Sincerely Jules Sweatshirt

Here’s another layering trick for spring- if you have a short sleeve sweater or sweatshirt, you can put a top under it to change up the look and add a bit more warmth. A similar idea but different look here.

Distressed Jeans

The pink color of this top felt really sweet, so I wanted to edge it up with my ripped jeans.

Gingham Tunic

For some reason, I wear this top all the time. I don’t know why, it’s just light, breezy and comfy. Plus, it gives me that flannel look without adding bulk.

Workout top that covers

This picture cracks me up. I’m literally doing a yoga pose in the corner of my kitchen, looking out the window while my camera takes ten continuous pictures of me. Anyway, I love this workout top. It covers the front crotch area, and I really like the black color, too! It was sold out when I purchased this top, but now it’s available.

Here’s another sleeveless top with jeans and a jacket… one trick pony over here.

Navy and Black Sometimes when I’m all dark up top (dark sweater, dark jeans), it’s fun to add a pop of white to the bottom. It’s an unlikely combination, but I love it.

J. Crew Pajama Shirt

I love this pajama shirt with velvet mules. Maybe Hugh Hefner inspired this look… Ha!

Madewell Pink Sweater

I don’t even know what to say about this outfit because I can’t get past the silly look on my face.
