Hi ya’ll. I’m Cass Rickles. I’m a new mommy, wife to a professional athelete, hairstylist, and blogger! My life has been absolutely crazy lately-I have been away for spring training in Florida with my family, (we left when my baby girl was just 3 weeks old!) but I am finally back in Vegas and getting back to business! I am so excited to finally be writing about some of my favorite pieces for spring, and to be featured on Le Blog on Molly Green!
Anyone who knows me knows I love anything with a little 70’s vibe- fashion, music, hair, etc. I’ve always said I should have lived my 20’s in the late 60’s- early 70’s. Woodstock, anyone? I love to pull from different influences, and dress with my mood. For example, I’m always listening to lots of acoustic, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan-ish music (I have Dylan lyrics tattooed on my forearm), so I’ve been incorporating that vibe into my wardrobe – dreamy prints, flowy sleeves, oversized jackets, hats, you get the idea. When spring rolls around, I feel like I’m really able to experiment and step out of the box with my wardrobe, rather than just dressing to be warm and cozy in the winter. I can play around with brighter colors and patterns and necklines, and of course break out my go-to high waisted jean shorts.
I started following Molly Green a while ago, and have always loved how they incorporate staple pieces with more fun, trendy pieces. I especially love their price points! SO reasonable for extremely good quality items! Music to my blogger ears. I recently fell in LOVE with their Neha top and Colin jacket and knew I had to have them. I love the Neha top because it has the cutest cropped shape, with ruffled sleeves and the sweetest floral pattern. It is the ultimate spring blouse. When I wear more feminine pieces like the Neha top, I love to pair them with super simple almost tomboyish counterparts. I never want a look to feel too girly- it’s just not my style. I like to feel a little unpolished, while still feeling styled. I chose to pair it with some simple “mom” jeans, a messy top knot, gold hoop earrings, my simple gold jewelry I never take off, and a hair scarf. I also threw on my Jam Sunnies by Molly Green.
I am such a sucker for anything corduroy (Anyone else have the HARDEST time spelling that word?). I also love pieces that can easily transition from fall, to winter, and then spring! (Definitely not summer, because Vegas is hot af.) The Colin Jacket is quickly becoming one of my closet staples. It’s tan and cropped, with long drop sleeves. I love that the sleeves are so long, because I am super tall, and I think it makes this jacket look so cozy and boho. I chose to pair it with my a plaid peplum top, my vintage denim shorts, and gold mules. Safe to say I will be rocking these two pieces all spring long!
