Spring Style with Miss Me


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miss Me. All opinions are 100% mine.

With the polar vortex hopefully retiring for this half of 2014, spring is on our minds. All we can think about are all the things we want to do now that it’s not frostbite season! And to do all of those things, naturally, we need new clothes.

Shopping for spring clothes is probably my favorite thing to buy. There is so much hope now that the dark clothes can be moved to the back of the closet.

Miss Me has a huge amount of new clothes for Spring. Checking out their whole collection – before they were out, or it was even appropriate to be breaking out the florals, gave me an early bout of spring fever.

To kick off spring, I came up with my first warm weather-inspired outfit — one that was perfect for sunny days when you still need a sweater. So I got Miss Me’s simple rhinestone five pockets skinny jeans in medium wash ($89.50), a Miss Me lace with scalloped hem top in off white ($54) and Miss Me’s floral cardigan in coral ($69) (in case you couldn’t tell, I was dying to add floral back into my wardrobe).

What do you think of the end result?
