OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and you’re enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve had today (that is, if your day has been as nice as mine has!). This is my last week of undergrad (well, college in general actually because I am not going to grad school!), and I am starting to feel a little sad about leaving this wonderful place I have called home for the past four years.  With graduation approaching this Friday and Saturday, it is all getting to be really real lately.  I guess I better get ready though, because whether I want it to or not, it’s still coming! I have been on the job hunt for quite some time, but I have really been cracking down lately.  While I would love love love to work in fashion (as you all know!) I am starting to really open myself up to other options as well, just to get my foot in the door somewhere, network with all kinds of people (you never know who they know!), and get some real experience under my belt.  So, I’m hoping something comes up soon, but until then I will just have to keep trying and keeping a positive attitude – eventually I have to get a job, right?! But, if any of you know anyone who is hiring or have any suggestions/ideas as far as a job lead, I would love to hear from you! Please email me at kristen.booth06@gmail.com with any comments or suggestions!

But, now that I just rambled on forever (we’re not getting any younger here, Kristen!)… Let’s finally get to today’s outfit of the day! This week’s Trendy Tuesday is the perfect outfit for a fun spring or summer day.  I am loving these lace/crochet shorts – I really need to get a pair! And these colors are just so fun and summery… They make me so excited for pool days and barbecues! So, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday outfit: Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday   Top: Alexander Terekhov, $749; Shorts: Alice + Olivia, $275; Shoes: Corso Cosmo, $69; Necklace: Stephan & Co., $24; Bracelets: kate spade new york, $48 (turquoise) Valentino, $545 (gold) Bauble Bar, $66 $34 (coral) On Sale Now!; Earrings: Stella & Dot, $24; Nail Polish: OPI, $8.99 – Bubble Bath (neutral) and Where Did Suzi’s Man Go?

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends In Fashion

It’s Never too Early to Start Shopping… Warm Weather and Sunshine are Just Around the Corner!

Spring has arrived and we all know what that means, green grass, blooming flowers, warmer weather, and the new clothes that highlight the latest trends in fashion.

Pastels (In particular, Mint)

If you have been to any clothing retailer in the recent past, you have probably Michael Kors "Selma Large" Leather Satchel seen the extensive presence of pastel everything – pants, tops, dresses, shoes, accessories and so much more!

Of all the pastel colors, mint is one of the most popular this season.  Pretty much anything you could imagine or want is probably available in mint.  While you can pastels - mint pants definitely find mint pants or tops (and they’re super cute I must say!), one way to add this fun and unique color into your wardrobe (a little more subtly) is through accessories.  By adding mint colored jewelry or a mint handbag, you can give your outfit a little flare.

For the more bold, go out there and rock those mint pants that you love and buy that super cute mint top that you’ve been eyeing at the store! Without a doubt, by including mint and other pastel colors into your wardrobe, you will definitely be looking chic and fashionable.

Lace

While it is definitely not a new trend in fashion, lace is a very big one this spring. This spring and summer women everywhere will be dressing in this fun and feminine fabric.

fashionable lace dresses

Whether its tops, skirts, shorts, or dresses, lace is the thing to be wearing this season.  Dress it up and wear it to work or to date night; or dress it down and wear it for a day around town. Whatever you decide to wear it for, you will look super cute at the same time as elegant and sophisticated!

trendy striped clothing Stripes

Be it horizontal, vertical, slanted, or zig-zag, stripes are another huge trend in fashion
this season.  By building up your collection of stripes within your wardrobe now, you will definitely feel ahead of the game when the sun starts shining and the temperature beings to rise.

Floral

A natural reminder and association of the spring and summer months, floral clothing are huge this season!  One of the most popular articles of clothing we are seeing in floral floral pants prints are jeans and other pants.  Be it more dull and darker colors that we saw in the  winter months, or the brighter more colorful prints we are seeing for the spring and summer, flowers are blooming everywhere! Paired with a darker shirt, these colorful poppy floral pants are extremely stylish and really cute!

While these are only the tip of the iceberg for the trends in fashion this season, these are certainly a few of the largest.  By just filling your wardrobe with a few of each of these fashionable items, you’re sure to have everyone talking about how cute you look!  Don’t put it off for too long, start preparing your closet now so you don’t miss out on the cutest items! Good luck shopping!

XOXO, Kristen
