Spring is almost here, Mamas! Time to send the little ones out to play in the sunshine after a long winter cooped-up indoors. Time for us to give Netflix a break and store the take-out menus in the drawer. Translation: it’s date night season! I have a fool-proof outfit formula for a night out with your guy. In the Spring, I love dressing up a pair of jeans with a pretty, frilly top and high heel sandals for a stylish evening.


Spring weather can be tricky. It’s warmer during the day, but nights can still get pretty chilly. To combat the uncertainty of the season, I usually opt for jeans for date nights. First, I LOVE jeans! They are sexy, comfortable, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I’m partial to premium denim. Yes, it is expensive, but a good pair of jeans will last for years. Premium denim is often softer than less expensive denim (unless you go for 100% cotton, which is just too stiff for my taste). The best thing about premium jeans is the bounce-back quality. Premium jeans do not lose their shape, even with multiple wears. That point alone makes them worth the cost to me. My favorite brands are listed in the shopping list below.WOW

I love to dress up my jeans with a pretty top. It can be lacy, silky, see-through, whatever. I tend toward henley-style tops with beautiful patterns, as seen in these pics. The other great part about these tops? Any bra will work! I always choose comfort, so not having to wear a strapless bra makes for a happy Hannah! Skinny jeans look great with loose, flowy tops. They add some structure to your appearance. If you want to shake things up a bit, try a distressed pair of boyfriend jeans with a silk blouse. I’m loving the looks of this pair.

Last, I always choose a pair of high-heeled sandals to finish my date night look. I am petite, so I need all the height help I can get! Like I said before, I want to be comfortable, so I choose shoes that add some height, but that are also easy to walk in. Nine times out of ten, I will opt for flats or low heels. However, I like to add a little sexiness to my date night look, so heels it is.

Ahh the warm weather, the smell of flowers and freshly cut grass in the air, I love Spring! Being a true fashionista, the best part of Spring for me though, is tossing the sweaters and jeans to the side and breaking out some fun, flirty, playful spring fashion that shows just a bit more skin.

Now is the time to start shopping for and wearing bright colors and pretty prints. Spring is the perfect time of year for really pulling out the vibrant looks, and showing your personality through your clothing.

Lately, I’ve been on the lookout for just that, but for a look that will also easily take me from day to night. I live away from the City and when I go into town for the weekend, I really need a look that is casual enough for day, but still totally looks chic and sophisticated for a night out! 

I recently found this lovely Bright orange mottled print cami and beige faux suede zip pockets mini skirt from Apricot perfect for my weekend look!

The outfit is super comfy while still staying true to my style aesthetic. I love that it’s totally appropriate for some shopping in hot weather during the day (thanks to the laid back vibe of the suede mini). But when you add the right accessories (heels and a cute designer shoulder bag), you’ve got the perfect look for an evening party too!

When shopping for looks you can take from day to night this spring, Don’t be afraid of color. It will pop and easily take that casual daytime look from day to night.

Also look for pieces that are feminine and still a bit flirty but not over the top sexy (in which case it won’t work so well for day). I love dresses and tops with open backs because you can wear a jacket over for day and then reveal that sexy fun detailing for night, and all you had to do was lose the jacket!

Switching looks from day to night can be easy once you keep these things in mind, and of course don’t forget the right accessories! I love wedges for spring because they are totally daytime appropriate but still make a fantastic heel for night. Chain Shoulder bags are also great because they look great with both casual and a more sophisticated evening look as well!

Spring Trends 2016 Nude Skirts.


By April Golightly (Guest blogger for SelfieMark).

Midi skirts are the medium length between knee length skirts and maxi skirt. When I first saw girls wearing these mid length skirts, I dismissed them as tall girl skirts. Petite women usually cannot pull off skirts that hit at such an unflattering length. Since I am always tripping over maxi skirts, I was only left with knee length and shorter skirts. This effective left me wearing skirt out to dinners with my husband sans kids. As a stylish mom that likes being able to wear skirts and be able to run after my daughter without accidently flashing bystanders, midi skirts are perfect for me. I found this amazing flowy midi skirt that is both comfortable and flattering. If you follow April Golightly, you know that I can’t stop wearing this midi skirt.

Leopard Look

This first look is an amazing combination of leopard and the nude blush midi skirt worn with the extremely on trend, lace up pointy flats. This is the perfect look for a brunch with your girlfriends! Get more details on this look here:
