Spring and Summer Fashion Trends

Spring and Summer Fashion Trends

A few months ago when it was cold and dreary, I started looking at some Spring fashion trends that will also fit right into Summer. Most of these trends were seen in magazines such as: Vogue, Allure, InStyle, and Elle.

Here’s what I found to be popular in the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons.

  • Stripes-Vertical or Horizontal. Wear them however you like.

  • Metallic and Sparkle-This is one I’m excited about! Who doesn’t love to sparkle and shine now and then!

  • Graphic Prints-Graphics can be so much fun! I am loving graphic print tee shirts! Show off your mood or personality by wearing one!

  • Florals-Flower Power! Florals are being seen everywhere! Shirts, shorts, shirts. You name it, and they are blooming on clothes everywhere you look!

  • Jumpsuits and Rompers-I will say I have a hard time finding jumpsuits that I can pull off, but last year, I did manage to find one. If you find one that fits your style-Rock It! The one I found makes me look taller and it is navy and white. I feel very nautical while wearing it. Rompers are simple and fun! I also only have one currently. I have long legs, so a lot of times I have a hard time finding one that fits comfortably.

  • Hide and Seek Cut-Outs-You can still look classy and show a little skin. Just make sure more is covered than not when going out in public.

  • Ruffles, Lace, Bows, Flowy Sleeves, and Ribbons-Get ready for romance! Some of these styles are a bit bold. I like how fun and flirty they look on. These styles are definitely one on the higher trend list that I am sometimes afraid that I can’t pull off. I do have a few pieces from previous years that still fit these trends that I will wear from time to time. I have to be feeling bold and confident that day to be wearing them though.

  • Leather Fringing-Fringe is fun! I think it adds a sexy touch to anything!

  • Statement Earrings-Bring on the glamour! Statement earrings will dress up anything that you have on. I especially like statement earrings that are light weight. I can’t wear anything that feels too heavy.

  • Ginghem-Black and white ginghem seems to be popular this season.

  • Joggers-Time to get comfy! Joggers are great to relax in and perfect for the weekend!

  • ADIDAS-The old school ADIDAS shoes that I wore when I was younger are now back on the market and being sold. If you are wearing those ever so popular three striped shoes, consider yourself trendy!

  • Off the Shoulders-Love, Love, Love this trend! I think it’s sexy, flirty, and romantic all in one! Off the shoulder shirts are just gorgeous!

  • Cacti, Lemons, Bees, Flamingos, Pineapples, Nautical, and Tassels-These are a few of my favorite things! What is not to love?! These are just fun and simple. They add some excitement to any outfit! 

    Here are a few items that I found in some of my favorite categories above.  What are some of your favorite trends for spring and summer?

Happy April! Easter is on its Way…

Happy April!  Easter is on its Way…

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying Spring and the beautiful weather that we have had this weekend! The warmth and sunshine motivates me to begin looking at gardening and patio essentials! I’m already on the lookout for beautiful flowers and plants!  This weekend I went into the shed and pulled out at two chairs and a mini table, because I couldn’t wait to sit outside and soak up some sun and read. 

I can’t believe that Easter will be here this weekend already! I’m getting excited to dress up for the holiday! Also, warmer weather means less bulky apparel. Dresses, skirts, sandals, tees…a lighter and brighter wardrobe ahead!

This week I plan on baking Easter sugar cookies and making a dessert or two. One tradition that I am looking forward to is eating ham pie! This tradition has been in my family for years.  An old tradition that I miss, that was always a must as a child growing up, was dying eggs and having our Easter morning Easter egg hunt. I’m looking forward to going to Sunday mass with my family and spending time with them. Life has been so busy, no one seems to have time to enjoy a few hours together at the same time.  What are some of your Easter traditions?

I am going to share a few Easter items that I thought were really cute for the holiday. There have been multiple recipes for Spring/Easter that I have found as well. If I have some time this week to try them out, I will share them with you as well! Enjoy the beautiful weather and have fun getting ready for Easter this week!
