Weekly Obsessions- Home Sweet Ruby

by Ally Harding, 5:00 AM
Today I'm switching it up a bit and having my blog friend and real life friend Cait share her Weekly Obsessions! 





Hey friends! I'm Cait and blog over at Home Sweet Ruby. I want to thank Ally for having me share my weekly obsessions (spring trends version) with y'all today. I feel so fortunate to have met Ally though the blogosphere... she has quickly become one of my favorite people to share a bottle or three  of wine with, do some serious retail therapy, and bring down our team scores on cosmic bowling double dates.


Ally is one of the most fashionable people I know, which is great motivation for me because I know I'll look like a slob in my yoga pants next to her. When I'm not in my workout gear or pajamas, my style is more classic and casual. Its painful to watch me in heels but I do try to pick up on some of the trends so I'm not always wearing my jorts, white tee and rainbows. So without further adieu, hear are some of my favorites this Spring that I'm hoping to add to my closet!



Graphic tees
Sadly this Sincerely Jules tee is sold out right now, but J. Crew and Madewell have a ton of options
 I have a thing for graphic tees lately, specifically with phrases en français.  I know about 20 words in French so that obviously makes me an expert, why not show it off and pretend like no one else around me knows what "amour" means. Also loving this Ampersand tee!




Distressed jeans
 I remember about 10 years ago my grandpa asked me if I bought my jeans with holes in them. Yes Grandpa, they really sell jeans like this. He told me he had about 5 pairs upstairs I could have used for free. That's what I thought of when I saw distressed jeans were back in style. I'm not sure how long this will last so I'm going with the "minimally distressed" look for now. And if I'm being realistic, this pair from Gap is good enough for me!




Strappy Sandals
Strappy sandals are everywhere and I'm especially loving the ankle strap! I'm talking flats and wedges, though personally I think there is a fine line between trendy and slutty when it comes to strappy wedges. Maybe it just depends on what you wear with them? I'll let Ally weigh in on this during our next shopping escapade.  




  Neons
I love neons for everything this Spring. Dresses, shoes, jewelry, nails... I'll take it all. But I only wear one neon piece at a time, I don't need to be blinding people with all this trendiness. ha! 




 Lilac nails
 
Lucky, Lucky Lavender by OPI is one of my favorite nail colors this Spring. I honestly never wore any color besides light pink on my nails until last year so this is my first venture into the purple shades. Light as Air by China Glaze is also a good purple hue, I know this because I spent what felt like 4 hours deciding between the two colors on my last trip to Sally's. 




Yoga pants
 Wait... yoga pants aren't in right now? Dammit.
Anyone have other Spring fashion obsessions to add?! 


Thanks again to Ally to having me and happy hump day!


Thanks Cait for sharing your Spring Favorites! I'm in love with that neon dress now! And Yoga pants are always in style!

  15. My favorite trends right now are the strappy sandals and anything neon! Love that pink dress and really love the price point. I'm hoping that graphic tee comes back into stock soon because I saw it on someone else and wanted it!
