Hi friends!  It seems that Spring has finally graced us with her presence and the sun has made an appearance, thank goodness!  I find it so hard to get up and motivated when it’s cold and gray outside.  Earlier this week I shot a ton of fabulous looks (if I do say so myself!) and one of my favorites was this striped dress and colorful tote duo!  I don’t know why, but about this time last year I went through a phase and got rid of all my dresses and rompers.  I honestly have no clue why I did that!  But I did, and found myself in quite a few wardrobe pickles and kicked myself for doing that.  Not only are dresses easy to wear – hello, you only have to worry about one piece of clothing! – but can be styled in so many ways.  I chose to “dress” up this dress with heels but I can’t wait to pair it with slip on sneakers or sandals!  Stripes are one print that never goes out of style and works for every season, which is why if you don’t own one already, then do yourself a huge favor and snag this cutie!  It’s soft, has sleeves, is the perfect length (whether you’re a shortie or tall), and is only $38 when using code SABBYSTYLE at Jess Lea Boutique!

Another huge trend that’s hitting stores for Spring and Summer is a bright and colorful tote bag!  Whether you’re heading to the beach, lake, or ocean – heck, even to the grocery store! – you must add a fun carryall tote to your lineup!  Some of them can get pretty pricey, so I was determined to find one that was not only cute, but affordable.  Enter this Lucca Tote from Stormie Dreams – it’s only $40!  I can’t get over the bright pink and white pattern, plus it has the perfect shape that doesn’t sag, it sits up-right, and comes with the cutest bag charms!  If pink isn’t your color, this tote also comes in emerald, purple, and red, plus bright colored patterns and designs!  Be sure to use code sabbylove for 20% off!

Have you heard of Stormie Dreams before?  Stormie Dreams is a clothing company based in LA, and they’re my new, go-to destination for fabulous and unique items!  Everything they make happens right here in the great US of A, and they only use fabrics & textiles that are sustainably sourced.   What does that really mean, you may be wondering?  Well basically the fabrics they produce are from textile mills that don’t dispose a lot of pollution into our environment!  Instead, they source fabrics and trims locally in Los Angeles that might have otherwise been destined to the landfills and give it a whole new life.  The beauty of rescuing these fabrics and trims is that many are specialty fabrics that have traveled anywhere from Europe to Asia and end up becoming unique pieces in your closet!  What’s better?  Through their zero-waste implementation, they use the leftover fabric to produce kids clothing for their partnered nonprofit organization, Santa Claus Inc!

Personally, I haven’t always put much thought into where and how my garments and accessories are made, but after discovering Stormie Dreams and learning about their philosophy and practices, I’m definitely intrigued to expand my knowledge to help make more informed purchasing decisions!
