Hello, friends! I am so happy to team up with HP x360 and their partnership with Meghan Trainor today (I run on the treadmill to ALL her songs, love her!), and show you four ways to style your Spring clothes. We are still in the thick of winter here, with lots of snow on the ground and below freezing temps….YET, I have been buying tons of pretty spring styles that I want to wear RIGHT NOW. While I still can’t wear my sandals, I’ve found that with a few little tweaks and some creative layering, I CAN wear my spring/summer styles now, and them style them later in a different way once the snow melts (soon, PLEASE…!)
Here are 4 ways to style your pretty spring things, right now:
-I have a love affair with kimonos, and instead of putting them away in the colder months, I love to layer them over long sleeve tees and dresses. I also adore the idea of an all black turtleneck with a flow-y kimono over it, and a wide brim hat.
-Floral maxi dresses are another fave of mine, but they aren’t warm enough on their own right now. I layer mine over fleece tights, studded boots, and throw on a fur vest to make it seem less “summery.” Also, my faux fur leopard coat keeps me warm when I am not outside taking style photos in the snow;)
-I don’t know why this look me so long, but wearing my cut off shorts over tights has been a fun game changer for me. I’ve also warm my summer weight rompers over fleece tights or leggings, and topped it all off with a chunky sweater or cardigan. #winning
-I have bought a couple of REALLY CUTE maxi skirts that I can’t wait to wear with gladiator sandals and a knotted tank, but until then I find I can wear a pair of leggings and ankle boots underneath, with a slouchy sweater on top. Fleece tights are my best friend when it comes to wearing skirts and dresses this time of year, and feel really yummy on!
Something else I have been having a blast using in four different modes lately, is my new HP x360 laptop. I use the phrase “laptop” loosely, though, because it is so much more! It has a notebook mode (great for blogging and email), stand mode (awesome for cooking videos and YouTube tutorials), tent mode (I use this as my virtual style collage inspiration!), and a tablet mode (my kids play educational games this way and adore it…as do I during MANY snow days;) Below are some ways I use my HP x360…
I used to put together ACTUAL style collages that I would tape up in my closet, but now I can use the HP x360 in tent mode and set it up right on my bed and browse my Pinterest Style Inspiration board while I’m getting dressed in the morning. I feel all ‘Back to the Future’ now….
I’m not a huge tech user with my kids, but we do have a couple of educational websites I love that can entertain my kids for awhile during these cold winter days. I adore the tablet mode for this, especially because it has a touch screen that my kids have seemed to master in their short little lives. (And isn’t that little five year old boy the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?)
And finally, the notebook mode of the HP x360. (Stand mode not shown, but still loved…;) This is my life above, working on blog posts and other business, while I eat lunch at my desk. I also love going to coffee shops around town, too, and having something that is portable and can be used in a lot of different ways helps me a TON.
P.S. HP is going on tour with Megan Trainor, and will have TONS of behind the scene action for us to see (!), you can follow her That Bass Tour HERE!
Tell me, are you wearing your spring things now, or is it still an arctic tundra where you are? Ha!
