Spring Fever Must Haves!

As of yesterday, it is officially SPRING! I have been waiting for this day since the first snow hear in Charlottesville. Spring is the time of year where there’s fresh flowers everywhere, sundresses, and outdoor activities that last more than 30 minutes!

Spring style is my favorite because it is so effortless, you don’t have to wear 5 different layers. You can throw on a dress, necklace, and pair of sandals & be good to go! So I’ve decided to list some of my favorites from UOIOnline.com to give y’all some spring inspiration! Also, if you use the code KERRYMAR online, you will receive 10% off your entire purchase!

Happy Shopping!

Easter Treat: How To!

Coconut Macaroons are one of my all time favorite desserts! They are so simple and the coconut is just delicious! Another reason I love them so much is they are very easy to get creative with. For Easter these last couple of years, I’ve been making these little bird nests that are so adorable! They are perfect for the easter season and they take under an hour to make!

Trend To L O V E: Watercolor

So, as I’m sure we all know, tie-dye is literally EVERYWHERE right now. Especially with it being festival season, people are really channelling their inner flower child. I however am not the biggest tie-dye fan. It just seams a little to arts and crafts to where around to everyday get togethers. What I am loving however are watercolor prints. I find them to be very feminine and a great way to add lots of color (like tie-dye) without it being too over the top or harsh!

I think this trend is perfect for spring and summer because HELLO the colors but also for it’s light and airy feel! Can we talk about that watercolor wedding gown! How gorgeous is it! The perfect amount of statement without taking away from the entire dress!

Family Portrait Styling!

So my sisters have been asking me for awhile now to pick out pieces for their everyday wardrobe and for some reason I haven’t been able to get around to it…. until now! One of my sisters is actually getting her family photo taken (by my other sister Katie Powers Photography!) and asked me to help her come up with outfits for her beautiful little family!

I was actually really excited for this because my sister has a very easy going, chic style and I think it will translate perfectly on everyone! It was important to make sure I didn’t come up with anything super matchy-matchy because that has to be the absolute worst when it comes to group photos!

So here are the 3 options I have come up with so far for her to choose from! The main colors that I was really feeling were Navy Blue, Chambray, Grey, Pink, and Cream. It felt very “Springy” without an overpowering amount of pastels!

Bags, Bags, Bags!

Bags are hands down my favorite accessory, I get it from my Mama! And like most things in my life, I like to keep the colors on the neutral side. However, there are times that I like to step out of my comfort zone and make a more colorful statement, and Spring is the best time for that! So I decided to share with you all my favorite picks that will work with almost anything!

Kimono Obsessed!

If you asked me 3 years ago, I would have said NO WAY to kimonos! It crazy, but I used to only like clothing that was fitted to my body and now the more flow it has, the more I like it!

What I’m loving about kimonos is that they come in all prints and can be the perfect amount of POP that your outfit needs. I also love them for the spring and summer time for when the weather is too warm for a cardigan but not warm enough to rock a tank top just yet!

In the past couple of months I’ve found some that I just can’t live without so I thought I would share some of my favorites with you all! And they are all pretty affordable! (Also they look great with leggings which is what matters most!)
