SPRING TRENDS: FRINGE

One of the hottest trends this season is not only cute, but fun!

Fringe is coming back and coming back strong! At first I wasn’t sure how it would appear in the market or if I would like it at all. But what I have learned these days is that you should never underestimate the power of the product designers! 

There are so many choices on the market right now to stay trendy. And it comes in so many different styles too! You can find something a little more obvious like this skirt, or maybe a cute sweater that has just a little detail on the sleeve? Or a cute summery wrap dress with fringe tassels along the hem to include in your suitcase on your next vacation? Or if you want to really reach for the trend, there are some cool leather and suede jackets with fringe detail on the sleeve and back as well! If I was cooler, I would totally rock one of those bad boys!

But what’s so great about this trend is the texture it gives to your outfit. The detail and styling of your outfit is pretty much done with a piece like this skirt. I paired it with a cute graphic tee and some cute black booties for a bit of a night-out, cool, rocker vibe! But also casual with the graphic tee. But it would be an adorable outfit to wear out to drinks with your girlfriends or a casual date night with your special someone. 

Looking for something a little fancier? You could pair this same skirt with a cute pair of simple pumps, and maybe a simple sweater or blouse. Not feeling this skirt? There are tons of really cute and different options. Something a little more retro with midi length suede fringe, or something with color and just a teeny fringe detail? The options are endless! Just shop them in the links below, just keep scrolling.

And let’s not forget about the accessories! Fringe tassel earrings have been back for a few seasons now, but bags and shoes are hopping right on board too. Which is so much fun! I love the texture that some of the shoes below have with the addition of fringe, whether there’s a little or the whole shoe! 

So whether you want to jump on in with a fringe biker jacket, or slowly transition into the trend with some accessories, you have plenty of options! And some really REALLY good ones in the links below. 

Happy shopping!

FAVORITE FLORALS FOR SPRING

Despite what the weather may say… here, it’s snowing. Cool.

What’s the first thing when you think of spring? Sunny days? Crisp mornings? Birds chirping? Easter, even? Me? I think of flowers. Fresh, beautiful, flowers. Where we lived in Maryland when I was growing up was surrounded by trees and flowers. One of my strongest memories is walking down the stairs in the morning, every single window open, to be greeted by the refreshing scent and sight of newly bloomed flowers just outside our front door. 

Now, as an adult, that’s still my hope for every Spring morning. No matter how… un-Spring-like Spring might actually be here in Minnesota. But despite the unseasonal weather, I will continue to wear colors and florals until Spring arrives. Forcing the Spring mindset 🙂 

 

So if you crave colors and prints come March 21st like me, shop some of my favorite picks below!!

There’s nothing more feminine and flirty than a flowy floral dress when the sun comes out. And this season is when the invitations flood your inbox: bridal showers, engagement parties, baby showers, spring weddings, easter brunch, family gatherings… you name it. 

Rock those events in style! Spring style, specifically 🙂

Now get to shopping! Whether it’s Easter brunch, a bridal shower, spring wedding, or just a girl’s night that you want to fancy up! These favorites will do just that 🙂

Looking for something a little more, everyday? day of errands? casual friday? These pants are the perfect happy medium if you don’t want the florals to take over your whole outfit. I used to shy away from everything feminine (hence childhood tomboy). So when I started experimenting with prints, I started one article of clothing at a time. 

In the same boat? These pants are perfection!

Whether you’re in the gym, at the grocery store, or on your way to date night, these picks are perfect for every occasion.

If I’m not in workout gear I’m usually wearing jeans, and there’s nothing I love more than the contrast of a pair of boyfriend fit jeans and a cute and feminine floral top! These three are my top picks and all would look adorable with a torn pair f jeans and nude/white heels. 

Still have chilly(-ish) temperatures? I feel ya. Check out some cute lightweight jackets that’ll do just the trick! And keep those Spring vibes flowing… until the Spring temperatures catch up.

SPRING IN POLKA DOTS

This is one of the biggest spring trends this year!

Polka dots are everywhere! Adorable tops, flirty skirts, cute pants, but my favorite? The jumpsuits! I have always loved a great jumpsuit but there is something so feminine and cute about a polka dot jumpsuit. 

Spring is the perfect time of year for this style, too! A great way to fancy up your outfit, and so easy to pop a coat over to keep warm on those not-so-springy days. And let’s be honest. Right now my legs are so pale I’d rather not expose anyone to seeing that in a skirt :-O

The cutest thing about this jumpsuit is that the polka dots are actually little hearts! So cute! And the t-shirt detail is perfect for spring too. Just casual enough it could be perfect for a girlfriend brunch, but also great with pumps for a fun date night, too. 

I paired it with my go-to pair of white Sam Edelman pumps because… well… they go with everything. I can’t tell you how many times I have worn these heels! I love them for spring and summer too because sometimes the black pumps are just too heavy. I like keeping the colors light and fresh during the warmer months and these heels are the perfect way to do that. Whether it’s with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a jumpsuit like this one! So many options.

MY GO-TO SATCHEL, FOSSIL

I love everything about this line of products that Fossil is rolling out!

It’s accessories and bags, that’s pretty much all a girl has ever asked for! Well, that and shoes 🙂 When Fossil sent me their Spring catalog I got so excited about all of the awesome products they have to choose from! This product we’re featuring today is the absolute bomb, and perfect for any outfit, any occasion for this spring. 

By the way… does anybody else wish that Spring started tomorrow?

This bag is a dream. The size is perfect! Not too big, not too small, and the structure of it makes it so easy to keep things organized. It stands on its own and keeps its shape so you don’t have to worry about the sides folding in, making your stuff so much harder to find. 

I think it also looks killer with this trench coat, if I do say so myself 😀 And luckily for all of us, trench coats are also going to be in style this spring!!

The detail is stunning! I love the key from the handle and the brass hardware too! It gives it such a classic look, but with the soft white makes it feel modern at the same time! 

Speaking of color… look at all of the amazing colors they offer below! I wanted so badly to get one of each! Alas, this one is going to make an appearance in most of  my looks in the coming months! Then, maybe this summer we’ll feature another 😉
