friday five …

// image via sincerely, jules //
welcome, spring! hooray! it's here!  i'm completely over winter and on to warmer, happier thoughts.  fingers crossed.  although, i'm hearing rumors of snow again on tuesday. say what ?!?!  regardless, this spring to-do list via the glitter guide provides a pretty comprehensive collection of things to-do now that spring has sprung.  do you agree with the list?  what are you excited to do now that spring has officially arrived ?? tell me!

i can't get enough of my gap boyfriend jeans.  if you follow me on instagram (go ahead, do it!  @taralchaney), you'll notice that a lot of my recent outfits have included them.  so stylish, and yet still functional.  i even have this pair for my daughter and they are the cutest!   check out this article to read out how you can style yours for some outfit inspiration.  most seem to be wearing their heels with the boyfriend jeans, but for me, that's not going to fly.  i need my converses to keep up with my littles.  join me in sneakers with this '15 ways to wear your converses' article. 
speaking of jeans, here are a few favorite boyfriend pairs of mine :  this white destructed gap pair,  this light wash gap pair (on sale!),   this distressed old navy pair (on sale!), this super ripped topshop pair, this jcrew pair (limited sizes), and this rag&bone pair.  side note:  i tend to size down when buying my boyfriend jeans as they run a littler bigger.

have you heard of the fashion project?! these ladies are on a mission to 'change the world one piece of clothing at a time.'  donate gently used designer items/clothing to this charity, and receive a gift card to nordstrom for every 5 qualifying pieces accepted.  a great idea for cleaning out that closet and refreshing with a few new pieces while doing good for charity! use 'fashion as a force for doing good.'  read more here and/or use this link to sign up!!!

speaking of closets and spring cleaning, how about organizing and updating yours?  i have a friend who LOVES to clean out and organize closets, and she is absolutely amazing at it.  better yet, she even believes that for every empty hanger you have after getting rid of an older item, you get to replace it with a new one.  now that's a mantra i can stand behind!  scroll through this article for amazing closet inspiration and organizational ideas.  

last, but not least, here's another box service to check out!  a girlfriend received it yesterday, and raved about the products inside!  she claims, "much better than birch box!"  this services comes via PopSugar, and contains all their monthly must-have fashion, fitness, and fun products.  take a peek at their past offerings!

happy friday!

Love, Tara
