A Message from Amanda:
Shopping local this summer? I am here for it; nothing boosts my mood like a fresh, new outfit and accessories to match. I’m Amanda Burris, a fashion guru and self-taught designer. I approach fashion & interior design with a frugal eye, and I love sharing my awesome finds through my lifestyle blog, Type A Style. I’ve compiled some of my favorite looks for spring—No need to drive to Louisville. All of the looks can be purchased at your favorite local boutiques; some even offer online shopping and free local delivery.
I’m a proud wife of a local police officer and mommy to Maverick Dean and his fur-brother, Bentley. Follow along as I find my way through life, one outfit at a time!

To The Nines
My favorite way to add flair to any look is with leopard. Wearing one piece with this fun print can transform a simple blouse into a chic outfit. Pair with a statement necklace and ankle booties, and you can consider yourself a fashionista.
A tweed dress is the ultimate southern-staple, and this pink version is perfect for Oaks Day. Accessories are what make an outfit stand out. A classy fascinator, statement earrings, a fun clutch, and some equestrian-themed bangles will make you ready to be one with the fillies!
That Cute Little Shop
Derby may have been postponed, but outfit planning for it doesn’t have to be. Don’t be afraid to go for some nontraditional colors for this new timeline. Let the headpiece speak for itself; pair it with a solid textured dress, and you will stand out at the race of the south.
With spring comes outdoor festivals and late-night bonfires. These laid-back events call for something casual. Paired with jeans, loafers, and a stylish fedora hat, this neutral tank and loose cardigan set would be the perfect comfy option for all shapes and sizes.
Walker Lane Boutique
Distressed boyfriend jeans are my recent obsession. They are trendy and flattering to all body types. Completed with a knotted tank, a fun striped cardigan, and some neutral accessories and you are ready for a shopping date with some girlfriends.
Raiment + Boon
Simplicity is always stylish. This blush belted tulle dress is a perfect option for Mother’s Day brunch, graduation ceremony, or a spring wedding. Its elegance speaks for itself, so a leopard heel and simple pearl stud earrings are all that’s needed.
“If it’s not moving, monogram it!” said every southern woman. Sass up a simple embroidered tee with a fun kimono, distressed jeans, and a trendy hat. Knotting a tee at the hip not only defines the waist but adds texture to a basic top.
‘Tis the season for some outdoor concerts! A flowy chiffon dress will keep you stylin’ and cool while dancing the night away on a warm evening. Boots are a necessity, along with a fun crossbody bag to help keep together all your essentials.
I am so ready for a vacation! What better way to soak in the rays and warm temperatures than in a bright, floral dress. Every girl needs a denim jacket in their closet. Drape it over your spring dress for a stylish look when the nights get cool.
