Favorite Spring Trends

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

The weather here has been terrible to say the least. We've had rain since Saturday and it seems like it's not ending until next week. Between work and the terrible weather, it's been a bit difficult to get outfit pictures in and that has me focusing on trends I've recently been loving and can't wait to get more of and wear once the weather gets to be a little nicer.

Stripes - I have always been a huge fan of stripes although I usually saw the pattern in boring colors like black and white and mostly used in tops in the past, but now they seem to be everywhere today and on everything. From tops, to dresses, and skirts, stripes now come in all colors and all widths. I love the big, wide stripes of the dress/tunic, the grungy look of the top, and the contrasting stripes of the skirt.

Bright Nail Polish - I have been stocking up on bright nail polish lately and my obsession started with a coral looking color from Essie. Since then, I have a teal, a light blue, and a fuchsia color but I am now on the hunt for an orange-y nail polish. How cute is Essie Capri?!

Florals - While I avoided this girly pattern like the plague when I was younger, I can't help but feel drawn to anything floral recently. I love the details of the dress, the little flowers of the top, and the big and bold flowers of the skirt.

Neutral - I am obsessed with anything in this beige/taupe/blush color and i love that the color looks so feminine even when used in trousers. The ruffles in the dress are absolutely beautiful and delicate looking and the detail on the shoulders ooze femininity.

What are your favorite spring trends? :)

Happy Wednesday!
