As you may have heard me mention before, I’m typically not a fan of pink. I prefer bright tones to pale ones when it comes to this color, so that’s why, when I spotted this fabulous Kate Spade coat in a punchy watermelon hue, I knew I had to have it. The color is almost shocking it’s so bright, making it the perfect statement coat for spring, don’t you think? It’s one of those rare pink pieces in my closet that I know I’ll wear again and again. With this coat and my yellow Zara coat I think I’m set in the color department as far as coats go. Another pink piece I picked up recently is this feminine Lela Rose blouse – the three-quarter bishop sleeves add a little something extra to the silhouette. Pretty, right? It looks great dressed casually with jeans and shorts, but it’s also a wonderful work top – just tuck it into your favorite pencil skirt and you’re good to go!

Now onto accessories… When I first saw this Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity bag, it reminded me of a candy store. All of the fun colored spikes make it an adorable crossbody that actually goes with all my favorite spring and summer pieces day and night – all the different colors make it easy to wear with a ton of other colorful stuff in my closet. If you’re looking for a new pair of sunnies for summer, these white cat-eye glasses by Kate Spade are perfect! They have just the right amount of flair, but can be worn with everything. The best part about this outfit? Everything I’m wearing is available for purchase right now (i.e. nothing is “similar” and nothing is sold out) – that almost never happens! Get while the getting’s good.

Happy Monday y’all! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen that I’ve spent the last few days in Austin. My family and I attended a fun wedding at The Driskill on Saturday, where I sported this sunny yellow Valentino number. It’s another amazing steal from my recent trip to Last Call, where I also got this red Givenchy blazer. It couldn’t have been better timing to find this dress, considering I have so many weddings this season! The soft yellow shade quickly captured my attention, but the pretty braided straps and waistline (and useful pockets) sold me. Yellow may just be my new favorite color! Shop some other gorgeous pieces in this bright and happy hue below.

On Sunday, I went to church with the fam, followed by brunch at new Austin restaurant, Chavez. The space is modern and sleek, and it overlooks Lady Bird Lake – best view in Austin for a meal, don’t you think? How did you spend your Easter weekend?

SATURDAY SAVINGS

Saturday Savings | The Style Scribe

I have a confession to make. My name is Merritt, and I am addicted to Divergent. That’s right, I said it. Last night I saw the movie for a third time and I’m still not over it. I’m on the third (and last!) book in the series and am desperately sad for it to end. With that said, I’m completely enthralled with the characters and am now totally obsessed with Shailene Woodley (pictured above) who portrays Beatrice Prior in the movie. Isn’t she a beauty? Totally a girl-next-door type, which is why I love her. She’s so relatable! Have any of you read the books or seen the first movie yet? If not, you need to. I would kind of compare her to how people compared Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games to Kristen Stewart in Twilight. Shailene kicks all their asses. Period. Anyway, now that you’ve heard my confession, you can all go back to enjoying your Easter weekend! Check out some crazy good sales happening right now below:
