Five Items Your Man Needs in his Closet for Spring

I think the only person who I like shopping for more than myself would be my Justin (at least, until we have little kids someday;). I love shopping with him, and seeing his face light up when he likes a certain clothing item! It's quite cute. Since it's Saturday, and I'm sure many of you may go shopping later, I thought we would feature some items we think your man needs for spring!

1. A Neutral Cardigan
I'll be honest, I've been trying to push Justin on the cardigan bandwagon for at least a year. When we found this neutral colored cardigan at Target, I made him try it on. And guess what? He loved it. Cardigans for men are great because they're stylish, warm for the chillier spring days, and they can dress up a plain white tee! Which brings me to...
2. Plain White Tee
Just as us ladies need ourselves that perfect white tee, so do the men! Justin likes to wear his white tee's with colored pants, nicer shorts, basketball shorts, jeans, sweats... It just works with everything! ;) Justin purchased his in a pack of three from Target! These are something he wears often, so we loved that we could get multiple for a good price. Don't forget that if you want to save a couple extra bucks when shopping online, look for Target discount codes!
3. Fun Shorts
I'm sure that men get warm very quickly in their pants and jeans, especially because... you know, hairy legs. Haha. Shorts are a MUST for the warmer weather! Justin got his at PacSun. They had so many pretty colors... But he decided to go with a classic: navy! He felt that he could wear this color with several things in his closet. The pair he's wearing has a fun detail on the back pocket, which adds some pizzazz and personality.
4. Cool Socks
Enough with the thick, white, generic socks! Gap will solve all your sock issues. We got a great deal during their friends & family sale, but make sure to look for Gap discount codes online for other good sales! Justin was looking at the socks for a good 10-15 minutes because they have SO many choices! Stripes, anchors, polka dots, argyle, you name it! In every color you can think of! For today's outfit he wore his navy and white striped ones :)
5. Spring/Summer Shoes
Let's branch out from the cross-trainers, crocs, and chaco's this spring. Go with something classic, comfy, and versatile like Sperry's. Like everything else he's wearing today, Justin went with a versatile color that he will be able to mix and match with several other outfits! Personally I don't think I could pull off these shoes, but I love that Justin can!

Gray on a Gray Day

When I took these photo's earlier this week, it was G R A Y outside. All day. Pretty sad. At least it was warm. Inspired by the gray weather, I wore an all neutral outfit. I love the contrast of gray, cream, and tan together! This basic top is a necessity in my wardrobe. I can dress it up, wear it casual, wear it to bed, wear it with whatever I feel like! You can find tops like this and other cute things over on toADORN, a daily deals site! Make sure to use the code 'ilovetoadorn' for 10% off of your purchase! :)

Onto the rest of the outfit-- vests are my thang right now. I LOVE them! Expect to see more vests in the coming weeks. Not even kidding! :) this fringe vest was purchased using a JC Penney discount code I found online. It's already on mega sale, but I don't mind a double mega sale! I think it's pretty neat that I can dress up a basic tee to look a little dressy with this vest. The fringe looks perfect with my new dream catcher necklace. I've been looking for a dream catcher necklace for a while, and finally found the perfect one here.

I hope you all have a great weekend! Justin and I graduate next week so I'm pretty stoked! Mainly stoked to wear a cute graduation dress, tee hee hee ;)
as I'm typing up this post, I realized that was grabbing onto a tassel on my vest. Why am I so awkward?

Legs of Leopard

A plain white tee and leggings might seem like the most basic, comfortable outfit there is.... But when those leggings of yours are leopard leggings, it takes the outfit to a whole new level! If you're in need of a perfect, basic tee then get yours from Everlane! Seriously, they are my favorite. I even bought a gray one because I love them so. I want them in every color of the rainbow! ;)

And leopard leggings, yes you read that correctly. They are so delicious I don't even know how to express my love for them! Agnes & Dora have a wide selection of beautiful leggings that you just won't want to take off. They're incredibly soft, one size fits all, and so fun to style!
And how amaaazing are these necklaces from VV Jewelry!? Such a simple yet bold piece! I love them!
