Spring has arrived, and guess what else has? Festival season—a time for culture, music and, of course, fashion. Festival fashion is so unique because there really aren’t any rules, except the mandate to express yourself. Wear layers, mix patterns and just have fun with style.

1. Boho Kimono
A fringed kimono screams “festival fashion.” Pair it with a lace bralette, acid-washed denim shorts and combat boots, then top it all off with gold accent jewelry. Kimonos are great because they’re super versatile. For instance, if you want something a little more modest than a bralette, you can throw on a plain tee or a plain camisole and you’ll still look amazing.

2. Flowery Festive
Love patterns and textures? Go old-school boho with a lace bralette and printed pants, topped off with a seriously fringed bag.

3. The Golden Girl
You can never go wrong with simplicity and a touch of gold. You could get lost in this mini dress, but lace cut-outs keep it flirty and feminine. A gold headband, matching clutch and layered necklace complete the look.

Festival fashion is all about being yourself, so don’t be afraid to break fashion rules or incorporate unique elements into your look. Have a great time at whatever festivals you’re attending this spring—and even if you’re not hitting the festival circuit, be different with your fashions and try these looks out.

For a company that began as a shoe store, we don’t talk about shoes nearly enough around here (or at least on this blog). That, combined with spring’s official arrival, meant we couldn’t help but highlight these adorable floral sandals.

BP. ‘Luminate’ Open Toe Sandal | $59.95

What we love:

The floral print. We love the soft floral print on these sandals—it’s perfect for spring and summer, and it adds a little bit of feminine flair to the otherwise simple design.

The slender ankle strap. This little ankle strap is so on-trend right now. It emphasizes the minimalist design of the shoe, not to mentions it’s super functional. Say goodbye to walking out of your shoes!

The classic heel height. The heel is about 3 inches high—very chic. It’ll give you a sophisticated, classic look without being so high that it’s hard to walk in.

But if you’re averse to heels, we also love these floral flats. Happy spring!

The official first day of spring is March 20—just around the corner! You’ve probably noticed that we can’t wait to break out flowy fabrics and lighter colors, but we’re especially eager when it comes to these printed pants.

lush ‘perfect’ woven pants | $38

Why we love them:

The boho print. A few different prints are mixed together on these pants, creating a cool neo-bohemian look. The busyness of the prints and the geometric inspiration makes for a super-cool design.

The loose cut. We really like the loose-fitting tapered silhouette of these pants. It gives you that easy, breezy aura without overwhelming you with too much fabric.

The pockets. Because, come on—pockets make everything better.

Pastels here, pastels there… there seems to be pastels everywhere this spring! French macarons, delicate florals, Sofia Coppola films and strawberry ice-cream all come to my mind when I dream of pastels.

I’ve picked some of my favorite Nordstrom pieces, so we can all add a bit of pastel perfection to our spring wardrobes.

I think this look is quite perfect for Easter Sunday. Fun, girly, and extra peachy! Also, doesn’t this necklace look like peaches & cream?!

This second outfit is my personal favorite and ultra modern. I imagine that the scalloped white tee would look like clouds on top of this pastel blue skort… it’d look like an “absolute dream.” (Yes, I’m currently reading “The Great Gatsby.”) :)

Whether they’re purple or pink, I adore these skinny jeans. Her impeccably girly style must be the reason why I could totally see Lauren Conrad rocking these pastel pants. Also, if pastel pink or purple had a scent, it would definitely be philosophy’s ‘amazing grace’ perfume.

We’re soaking up the sun here on the West Coast—flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and spring is right around the corner. But while that may be so, the temperature is still pretty chilly here in Seattle, so we’re reaching for things like this blazer to transition us through the changing seasons.

elodie print blazer | $48

Why we love it:

The color. The light pink color makes this blazer perfect for the sunny weather. It’s a welcome change from the dark greys and black of winter.

The print. We also love the sweet little print. The dainty abstract dots keep the look modern and interesting. Don’t be afraid to mix it with other prints in your closet, either!

The shape. The style of this blazer, with its shawl collar, curved hem and looser fit, creates a casual silhouette that’s great for dressing up or down. Pair it with a simple tee and jeans or throw it over a springtime dress—you can’t go wrong.

Made for Madewell


Madewell: effortless, classic and cool. There’s really no other way to describe the beautifully minimalistic brand. Madewell was made for the easy-going girl who loves simplicity, dainty prints and absolutely everything denim. No, really, Madewell gets denim right on SO many levels. I truly love this brand, so here’s a few looks featuring mainly Madewell products plus some other fun Nordstrom accessories. :)

Look 1
Keep it simple in a printed silk tee + high-waisted denim. Complete this boho look with an outback hat and you’re ready to take on any adventure.

Look 2
Is it just me, or is this second look just comforting to look at? Cozy cardi, delicate blouse and a pair of skinnies—yes, please! Not only does this outfit work for any casual occasion, but the layers also make it suitable for (most) weather conditions. Just bundle up in this thick cardigan and some leather boots if there’s a chilly breeze…

We’re having beautiful weather here in Seattle (sorry, East Coast!) and we’re eagerly looking forward to spring. It has us reaching for lace and pastel colors, like this cute lace shift:

hero

lace shift dress | $48

Why we love it:

The easy shape. We love the silhouette of this dress—it isn’t too fitted, which makes it easy to wear, but the shorter hem keeps the look fresh and flirty.

The bell sleeves. When we look at these sleeves, we can’t help but think about the ’60s and ’70s. We love that this little dress incorporates that boho style while still making it modern and new.

The breezy style. We can’t attribute the dress’s airy nature to just one element—everything works together here to create a carefree look we can’t pass up. If you have a free-spirited spring/summer in front of you, you’re gonna want this dress in your closet.

We spend so much time talking about clothes, but sometimes an outfit is all about the details. In that spirit, we’re turning our attention to one of our favorite layering pieces this season: the triple chevron necklace.
hero

triple chevron necklace | $16

Why we love it:

The boho style. We seriously love the vibe of this necklace — we see it paired with a flowy Free People top, a sweet hat and fringed bag for that effortless one-with-the-wind look.

The layering option. This little necklace is perfect on it’s own, but because of it’s delicate nature, it also goes great with other lightweight chains. Layer it with some of your favorite necklaces (like this one or this one) to get the trend.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! And we’re getting into the lovey-dovey spirit with this adorable red lace dress:

herolace skater dress | $48

Why we love it:

The lace. When you see lace, don’t you automatically think romance? No matter who your Special Someone is this year (hellooo BFF), go ahead and dress up in this flirty lace dress.

The color. This red is perfect for Valentine’s Day. It shows you’re getting into the spirit of the holiday, but isn’t so over-the-top that you’ll never wear it again. We can absolutely see this dress paired with tights and a jacket in the winter, or paired with a lightweight scarf and sandals this summer.

The fit. The fitted bodice and flared skirt gives this little number a feminine look. Don’t be shy about playing up your girly side!
