What's not to love about a head-to-toe pink look?
I love the variation of shades... because why not?

Neon Slide

I've long been a fan of Golden Goose sneakers. They're comfortable. They're distressed and cool. Yes, they're expensive, but they are my go-to shoe. When I came across this neon pair, I died a little. Neons are a huge trend for spring and sneakers have gone from a trend to a staple. It's a double-win.

Annabelle


I was recently in the shoe department of a large department store looking around. I asked one of the associates what their opinion was of pool slides to which he replied, I think they're going away soon. As in, he thought the trend had exceeded its life span. I, on the other hand, think they are here to stay for at least another year. I think it will be the flip flop of summer. Go ahead and grab a pair for the pool or beach. I don't think you'll regret it because, hello, they're the most comfortable thing ever. Shop her fringy slides below...

Crops

Lately, I've seen several celebrities dress in wide-leg pants and a cute crop top. While I think the ensemble is chic and summer goals, I'm not sure I'm daring enough to try it. For those that are, kudos!

Utility

Grab your tools... the utility look is huge right now. There are two simple ways to get the look: topstitching + pockets. That's all you need to look for and you'll officially be wearing the utility trend. Head to any major clothing website and type "utility" in the search box... you'll get a quick feel for the look. How killer are these shorts? I love them with an easy white blouse (preferably one with topstitching) and a western boot. For lack of a better word, it's nailing the utility trend.

Rules for executing the trend:
-Stick to a neutral color palette (denim, tan, ivory, army green)
-Keep the accessories natural (see yesterday's post for tons of ideas in the rattan/ wood/ pearl categories)
-Pair your utility look (preferably a jumpsuit) with mules or western boots
Here are some easy pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe to be on trend:

Spring Accessories

It's time to bust out the spring accessories. From a fresh pair of white sneakers (make sure they're spring ready with an espadrille sole) to the newest natural accents, it's time to lighten up. The key words to note are raffia, wood, acrylic, and rattan. Shop my picks below and head to my Spring Edit list on Amazon for more!

Update your beach (or pool) look with a fresh pair of slides. Again, think about this season's key elements... raffia & rattan.

If you're more of a sneaker girl, as we mentioned earlier, grab a fresh pair of white sneakers with a springy espadrille sole. It's the best of both worlds!

Rattan is going to be the hero of spring. Whether you incorporate it with a handbag, shoes, or earrings, grab a piece of rattan. It's a must!

To round it out, complete your look with a pair of acrylic hoops, a fun fringy tote, or a fun ring with a coastal-inspired ring (coastal shells and pearls are going to be what we're calling a "micro trend"). Shop my picks below:

What are your favorite spring trends?? Whether you're leaning more towards bright neons or something more natural, there truly is something for everybody this season! Happy Spring!

Neon

Roll your eyes if you must, but bright neons are the way for summer. So, how do we execute that now when it's a bit too soon for bathing suits? The good news is fuzzy jackets are still huge for fall 2019, so grab one in a neon color. Wear it now when the temps dip in the morning and at night. I've also put together some spring pieces to snag now that will keep you on trend in the neon department. Don't wear them all at once... maybe one piece at a time?

Here are some of my picks for spring neons (also, be on the lookout... coastal-inspired jewelry will be everywhere):

Clear Bags

Let's keep talking about spring, shall we? Clear lucite/ PVC/ "stadium" bags have been on the radar for a short while now. Something that started as a need-based design (that I was not a huge fan of initially) has become a must-have this season. Whether you choose a small cross-body version or something with a statement shape handle, go clear! Grab a cute pouch to stick inside to hide all your clutter. 
Here are some of my favorite options for clear bags:

Poplin

We already sprang forward and the first official day of spring is a week away. It's close, yall! I've been keeping an eye on the emerging trends and one that's huge this season but is also a staple is the return of the classic white dress. Is there anything easier than a simple white cotton dress for the warmer days ahead? Go ahead and grab one now before the selection gets slim. The options I'm loving are listed below (there are also several super cute options on my Spring Edit Amazon list - if you're freaking out because Spring Break is next week... well hello Prime). Other key pieces and textures I'm watching are eyelet and rattan, also classic spring elements.

Hot Pink

While we were thinking the color of the year would be a bright, punchy coral the Oscars said otherwise. Hot pink was single-handedly decided as the color for spring. While the occasions for which you might need an evening gown are limited, there's always a reason to pick up a more casual dress in THE color of the season. I've put together a list of six of my favorites ranging from daytime casual to cocktail. Happy shopping!

Lilac Green

 
The forecast for spring is looking bright! One color combo I'm keeping my eyes on is lilac and a deep emerald green. It's fresh and perfect for the transitional months ahead. Another thing I've scoping out is sneaker trends, because let's face it, I LIVE in sneakers these days. I want an updated, clean, bright white pair that isn't as broken in as my go-to Golden Goose high-tops.
A trend I'm seeing emerge is velcro. I guess we're taking inspiration from the children's department, because velcro sneakers are now must! I've scoured the web for my favorites and will list them below. Grab a pair, wear them now, keep wearing them throughout the summer. One thing is certain... you don't have to deal with unruly shoestrings.

Derby Hats

May is my absolute favorite month of the year. The weather isn't
smolderingly hot yet, the bugs aren't swarming around, there are so many fun gatherings, and it's the month of my birthday... so much to celebrate! Not to mention how gorgeously green everything is right now before it starts drying out over the summer. This month is only sweetened by fun horse racing events where hats are a must, and this year, the Royal Wedding where a great headpiece is what makes the outfit. Counting down the days to May 19th!

Palm Pants

Not only does it feel like spring, today it actually feels like a taste of
summer. It has me dreaming of all things tropical, trading my signature black pieces for pops of white, and grabbing all things pink. This is basically what is swirling through my mind right now...

Blocking

There are few things I love more than a good black & tan color
combo. It's simple, understated but bold at the same time, and a classic twist on color blocking. This dress embodies everything I love about black & tan...

White Hat

Check your coat and political views at the door... we need to talk about
the hat. The First Lady stepped out this week in a stunning Michael Kors suit with a crisp white hat. Talk about making a statement. It gave me a mix of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, a nod to Scandal (white hats), a little Princess Diana and a little Kate Middleton... all in all an 80's and 90's vibe. I was a little obsessed. What did you think?

Hunter Tory

At this point, I have yet to see a slide sandal that I don't like. I've already jumped on board and invested in the trend, so let's hope it has staying power! This pair from Tory Burch caught my eye immediately during her fashion show last September. I love the bright orange understated pattern, but my favorite part is the terry cloth material. Perfect for the pool! Pair them with an easy shirt dress and a fun bag and you've got a simple, comfortable but cute summer look. Don't forget the statement earrings!

Sunshine

While I've never been a huge yellow person, it is bringing me life right
now. Seriously, is there a happier color? It's brightening up the dreary, rainy April days making me long for summer. I love these tie-waist trousers paired with another trend of the season, polka dots. Get the look below...

April Showers

Finally, we have a day of sunshine. But we all know that the
month of April is notorious for stormy weather. It's time to have the Hunter rain boots and umbrella on standby. It's also the perfect time of year to pick up a great trench coat. Even if it's sunny outside, it's a great mid-weight jacket for the cooler temperatures. I found this one the other day and I think it's the perfect option for a classic trench. Stay dry everyone! The May flowers are on the way!
