       grey poncho white jeans spring styleYou guys, I just applied for graduation last week and have started preparing my invitations! I know that seems so exciting, but for me it’s very bittersweet!  I’m extremely thrilled to start a new chapter (I’ve been hunkering down on applications), but I’m also sad to leave this one behind – as the past four years have become a huge factor in shaping who I am. I’ll miss the environment, but most importantly – I’ll miss all of my friends and the other relationships that been fostered here. SO, in order to cope with my emotions, I’ve been shopping like crazy!grey and white poncho nordstromspring style with white denimI purchased this poncho from Nordstrom a few months back, but have just started wearing it as the weather has warmed up (somehow it’s snowing again as I type this??). BUT, amongst my recent various purchases are these beautiful cognac Schutz sandals!spring transition weather outfitsschutz kora sandal cognacI saw them on one of my favorite bloggers – Hallie of Corals and Cognacs – and just so happened to stumble upon them a few days ago! I had been wanting them for the longest, so it was just my luck that they were nearly 60% off! Fortunately for you, they’re still in stock! Run, don’t walk!asos red crossbodyspring fashion with white jeans schutz kora sandalI’ve been itching to my wear my white jeans (as if I didn’t wear them enough this summer), and knew they would go perfectly with this poncho and these schutz sandals. I don’t know how I went so long without white denim, but it’s the best. thing. ever.light ponchos for spring style weather

 I also added this bright red cross body to make the outfit pop a little more, and absolutely love it. It’s from ASOS, and I’ve had it for about two years now. I’ve bought several bags from the site, but this one makes the cut nearly every time! I also have so many other ideas for styling these Schutz sandals and can’t wait to share!
