Adrienne's Top Spring Must-Haves

acid washed jeans
I think these jeans make the perfect look for spring and would compliment all the bright colors and pastels we're starting to wear. I love that the acid wash is coming back, some might not agree  but I think they're definitely new and improved and I can't wait to snag a pair of my own. Like it or not, these are the new IT jeans.

short slouchy boots
These definitely grew on me, I love these with a cute pair of denim cut-offs or a skirt or dress. Really anything would work with these versatile boots, they are the perfect transition to spring.

This is your solution to wearing that cute short dress, and not getting into too much trouble. These one piece outfits give the appearance of a dress, flowy and unrestrictive but act like a short to keep you covered when you're having fun. 

flowy tank
There's plenty of room to breathe with this cool, airy fitting tank. On a warm day, pair with capri leggings and it's a match made in heaven. Dress it up for night with pumps, for a look that's casually glam.

beige blazer
The blazer looks cool and crisp in a summer-friendly beige. This will be my go-to for a light cover-up on a cool day. A bright or floral dress/romper will instantly pop underneath this neutral shade. 

simple red dress
Nothing makes an entrance like a lady in red, just watch pretty woman! Red just so happens to be my favorite color, lucky for me it's back on the color palette for summer/spring. In my eyes there is nothing more attention-grabbing and sensual than a red dress. 

white purse
I love the look of a clean white purse against color for spring. White purses only come out when the weather is warm so just seeing them brightens up any look. 

pretty spring makeup
Two-Faced is one of my favorite cosmetics brands, it is very richly pigmented, even more so than MAC in my opinion. They make a variety of beautiful colors for eyes, but the one I'm featuring I think is an essential spring palette for colors that are both soft and sultry. You can look fresh-faced and natural with the pretty pastels, and blend in the darker colors for night to create a dramatic smokey eye. Every girl should have a kit like this!

flower necklace 
I don't know why but I'm suddenly into floral everything now that it's spring, including jewelry. I think just a subtle flower charm necklace looks really spring-y and would be something you could wear all the time with a basic tank or simple top.

Classy Act: Wear A Tuxedo and Look Hot!

tuxedo bombshell

No one can pull off a sexy tuxedo look quite like Eva but we can sure try! Eva was wearing this perfectly polished ensemble on David Letterman the other night. As soon as I saw this I just had to recreate it! Below I found some closely matched items for a lot less than eva's designer look. The low cut tuxedo jacket and hot pants definitely make an entrance and although eva looks stunning, we might not be making our debut at the late night show. This outfit can be a little more discreet by adding a tank top under the jacket, but it also depends on the occasion and how much skin you want to show.
