There are so many fun things coming up in April that I am excited to share with y’all. With a meetup this coming weekend (see this post for details) and an instagram takeover on the 22nd you’d think I would be set when it comes to blog socializing for the month of April. Nope, wrong! I am so excited to share with y’all that the Haywood Mall has invited me to come and help host a Sip and Shop Event with them on the 25th of April. While sadly I have a prior engagement and won’t be able to make it to the event I am so excited to be sharing some cute looks from some of my favorite stores at Haywood Mall today to help prepare you to shop for spring and get y’all excited for the event. And there may even be a giveaway at the end of this post that works at any of the Simon Malls so this is open to you even if you’re not in Greenville!
The event on April 25th is geared around Sipping and Shopping and the sales from the $10 tickets (purchase yours in advance here since the price goes up to $20 at the event) benefit the Ronald McDonalds House Charities of the Carolinas! From 5 to 9 you'll be able to shop spring fashions with exclusive deals on this season's styles while enjoying various wine and cheese pairings. You'll get a passport to have stamped at participating retailers to earn a $10 gift card at the event!
I've put together 4 different outfits below that feature pieces from the participating retailers and not to compliment myself but they are pretty cute! It would have been so easy to make countless other outfits when I was shopping around the mall but I would hate to overwhelm you with too many cute pieces and I think you should definitely go check out some of these pieces for yourself!
This first look is casual enough to fit so many different occasions. I adore this shirt and its crisp, light weight feel and love how it looks complimented with different shades of brown! And while you can't see all the precious details of the shorts (like the ruffle hem top and pockets) they fit so well and are thick enough where you don't have to worry about them being see-through!
This top made me feel Easter ready. I love that off the shoulder tops and staying in style and the fact that this one ties together the off the shoulder trend along with a bow made it perfect for so many occasions. It came in a couple of different colors but there was something about the pink that made it a must have.
Are y'all seeing a bit of a trend? These same white shorts look good with just about everything and this bright green off the shoulder top reinforces how much I am loving that trend! This top would look so cute paired with white jeans or a skirt and a pair of neutral wedges for any spring parties or gatherings you have coming up.
And lastly, what is a spring fashion post if it doesn't include something multicolored with tassels or fringe. This tunic is so cute on and can be worn in a variety of ways. While I chose to wear jeans and sandals it would be so cute as a beach coverup or a dress if you're on the shorter side. This purse and the various color combinations available also quickly became a favorite of mine as it provides an additional pop of color while still being practical in size and style!
Clearly finding favorites for y'all wasn't too challenging and I can't wait for you to find your own new spring additions to your wardrobe at the Sip 'n Shop Event on April 25th. Be sure to get your tickets in advance here so that you are able to shop!
And drumroll please...
