Jumping straight into spring dressing— a bit prematurely, I'll admit, but we've lucked out with some pretty good weather these past few weekends. Also jumping into the culotte trend, which until now I'd filed away as another trend only meant for tall girls. This Missguided pair changed my mind! And let's talk about the tube top circa 2000 for a minute. Who would have thought I (or anyone, really) would ever bring it back? Certainly not me. But when paired with clean, high-waisted, and long-lined silhouettes, it's modern and sophisticated— a far cry from the denim miniskirts and flip-flops I used to pair them with!

Really love how this ensemble came together last minute, as taking outfit photos was not on my mind after spending my three-day weekend in sweatpants. David and I spent a low-key Valentine's Day eating at our favorite ramen place before catching 50 Shades of Grey (don't judge), so wearing what is essentially sweatpants and a robe was only natural once I did venture out of the house. Added just a few touches to dress it up, like the boots and bag, and finished with a red lip and my Filippo Loreti watch. Don't forget, you can still get 15% off your own watch with the code 'sunkissedsteph15'! Happy Wednesday!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I recently took the plunge and chopped my hair. I was bored with my longer hair and itching for a change, so I decided on a whim to go shorter than I've ever gone, plus change it up with some highlights at the bottom for dimension and a bit of edge. I love it so much I may never go back to long hair!

And my hair's not the only thing that's been cut up— I've been living in this hole-y tee for weeks. It was only a matter of time before my obsession with all things distressed made its way to t-shirts.

Topped off this whole look with my new Filippo Loreti watch straight from Italy. I love the look of an all black watch to compliment a monochromatic look— oversized and masculine, yet still sleek.
