Here at AiW we’re gearing up for spring, which means we have some new things in the works.  For example we’re FINALLY going to have a newsletter!  It’s something I’ve always wanted to do but with so much on my plate is just hasn’t been realistic.  Later this spring when the newsletter goes live, expect things like great shopping guides, fashion tips, personal stories, and of course updates on the latest sales from across the web.  This post will be a mini example of what our style guides will be like in the newsletter so please give me any feedback on your thoughts in the comments below .

With the season changing it’s time to start stocking up on spring essentials.  I’ve always been a staunch supporter of any multi-use fashion pieces and styles.  I believe that when buying an item you should always be able to style it in at least 2-3 different ways.  These army pants when paired with a sweater can be worn now or substitute in a blouse with sandals as the temperature increases.  How about a pair of printed pumps to perk up a boring black dress, or pair them with jeans and a tee for a casual weekend outfit.  As we transition into the warmer days ahead we will still have to deal with those cooler evenings.  Make sure whatever you’re buying for spring can complement your winter wardrobe, that way you will be able to get the most bang for your buck.

It might seem like I’ve been on the quiet side across my social media channels, but just know it’s because I’m working on things to come.  To see more of my fashion tips stay tuned for updates on the newsletter and on information on when it’ll officially launch!

Get in the trenches…

The peasant blouse a peasant could afford…

The army pant…

The oh so necessary black bag…

The statement pump…

As always, happy shopping!
