Spring Transition Pieces

Since warm weather is finally approaching (yay). Spring is my second favorite season- summer is first obviously *beach girl* haha. It's not too hot and it's not too cold. The sun finally stays out past 5:30 PM and there are pretty flowers everywhere! Finally you can begin to dig out your favorite sandals and pair of jean shorts! Dresses are no longer miserably cold to wear and you no longer have to carry a coat with you everywhere you go.
If I could wear a cute maxi and espadrilles everyday, I would. Seriously those are my top two favorite pieces in the world! I love all the whites and the bright colors Spring brings with it as well. I pieced this post together to kind of give you all some ideas on different outfits you could style for this transition into warmer weather! There are definitely some *SPLURGE* worthy pieces in this post, but for the most part they are all super affordable- good news, right?!
These outfits are super easy to shop, just click on an image to be directed to the website! If you want to save an outfit for later, feel free to pin it on Pinterest! Thanks for reading and let me know in the comments which outfit is your fave!

Random Facts + Life Update

1.  I am a twin!
So Haley and I could not be more different!! She's super tall, I'm not. She has dark hair, mine is a little lighter. We have WAAAAY different styles. She LOVES the mountains, I love the beach! Haha. We're fraternal too, so we look nothing alike!

2. I took outfit pictures in high school!
I had always been obsessed with clothes and fashion.  I would take pictures in the bathroom on break so I could print them and keep them in a book to remember which outfits I liked! Oh man I wish I had thought to post them on instagram! Those filters though. 😂 My style has changed SO much!



3. Full name: Olivia. May. Bell. no Maybell here 😂😂😂

4. Exercise Science Degree
I never really thought about going into any sort of fashion business or anything as a career. I always wanted to be a doctor and at the time the only jobs in any sort of fashion were big NYC jobs as a designer or model, or retail working in a store- neither interested me. I am so glad I finally found blogging and I truly love it! There are days I have regrets not going to medical school because medicine has always interested me, but fashion and being creative has my heart!

5. TN is HOME
I have always lived in Tennessee, but I have always had an addiction to the ocean! My mom does too, so we would go multiple times a year to the beach. When I got older and had my own money I would go literally every couple months. I can't get enough! I would LOVE to live on the gulf or in Charleston one day!

LIFE UPDATE is approaching one year- in April- & I cannot believe how much it has grown. It is crazy to think how this all started! I remember talking with Caleb about all these bloggers and girls I was obsessed with and thinking wow I wish I could do that. It may have even been Caleb who was like uh Olivia you can do what they're doing! My first post was about our engagement! Read about it here. It is still my most read post!! 

Blogging is hard and a lot of work! I never would've imagined looking from the outside in how much goes into it and goes on that everyone doesn't see. I am so thankful I was talked into doing it and I enjoy every minute of it! So thanks for following along! If you are looking for tips or encouragement on starting your own blog, read this post here!
