Life has been holding down my fast forward button lately and much as I’d like to say it’s over, this week will be much the same. Nevertheless, I can’t stand to be away from you any longer so I’m back and powering through. I thought this post would be a little shorter but apparently I don’t have an edit button. I’m ridiculously happy you’re here so we’ll get down to the stylish business at hand.
Great trends abound this Spring and this outfit combines a few. I wore this a few weeks ago to a wonderful store opening in San Francisco. Azil Boutique is a great jewelry & accessories store that opened it’s second location in Russian Hill. I’ll be sharing more about Azil with you soon so stay tuned. Color is always popular when warmer weather arrives but florals have been especially popular this season and last. They’re fun and feminine but like any print it’s a matter of preference; You have to find a color and pattern you like. Not all florals are created equal so take the time to find one that won’t make your eyes bleed.
Another HUGE trend? Black and white. Stripes in particular, especially bold ones if you’re game. While these aren’t bold I like this shirt because it’s wonderfully versatile. Any combination of black and white is great but this season go graphic if you can. This combination is great news for those to don’t follow trends as closely because black and white will never go out of style. You can veer a little trendier with small wardrobe updates while still being able to shop your closet.
Leather is another big player this season though you’ll be finding it in colors other than black. White, blue, brown, blush. Whatever your heart desires! For this look I couldn’t help but sneak in a little more time with these black pants but I’m loving lighter colored leather for Spring and Summer. Have you jumped on that bandwagon yet? To keep things interesting I choose purple suede shoes and then doubled up on necklaces for texture. If you haven’t tried layering necklaces yet I highly recommend it.
If you work in a more creative field you could easily wear this to work. If not, these piece’s could be broken down and paired with other items to make them work appropriate. Or wear them whenever you want! What’s your favorite trend this Spring? Is there a particular one you’d like me to post about? So the next time you’re starring at the closet consider tossing pieces around like this Spring Mix. Let me know what you come up with!
