I don’t know about you, but spring is undoubtedly the best season of the year. It’s the perfect time to experiment with lighter hues, patterns and prints. I enjoy storing away my dark-colored nail lacquers, and reaching for pink, lavender, mint, etc. Lest we forget the weather is ideal – it’s neither too hot nor cold!
Recently, I talked spring’s most-coveted trends, like, shirting, statement stripes, and shocking pink. Storets has become one of my favorite online clothiers; everything I’m wearing is straight from their site. They’ve got the shirting trend down – the top I’m wearing was an instant buy. I couldn’t leave without snagging the skirt; I love the silver hook in the front – It’s a total nod to those I used to wear in the early 90’s. 😉
What are your thoughts? What trends are you eyeing for spring?
Post-Christmas sales are Heaven-sent. If there’s any holes in your wardrobe, that’s the perfect time to fill them! Zara and Nordstrom are worth mentioning, because I scored chic pieces without going over budget. I’ve also taken advantage of American Apparel’s Going Out of Business sale. Regular-priced items are 40% off and everything on sale is 70%, um yes. These high-waisted denim pants were a regular $70, but I got them for $21! Not to mention, they make my derrière look quite nice.
I had a look in mind involving a crewneck sweatshirt and denim pants, with fishnets underneath. The one I’m wearing was originally $55, but I bought it for $22. It’s a TopShop original, sold at Nordstrom. It has both a feminine and masculine appeal, and it looks good with almost anything, whether it be jeans or a skirt. What were your post-Christmas sale finds?
I jumped on the Huarache bandwagon last fall, while visiting a SIX:02 location, here in Dallas. Initially, I was shopping for pieces from Rihanna’s apparel line, Fenty x Puma, but I got distracted. I wandered over to the shoes, and one of the reps encouraged me to try on a pair of Huaraches. My initial thought was, These shoes are difficult to put on. However, that didn’t stop me from wanting them. After stuffing my feet into the 8, I pranced around the store in hopes of finding a way to talk myself out of buying them — nope. Needless to say, I went home with the sneakers. Mind you, I’ve never paid over $50 for sneakers, so I guess that’s why I had a case of buyer’s remorse. I returned the sneakers the next day, only to end up snagging an Adidas bomber I spotted before eyeing the Huaraches.
To my surprise, I was gifted a pair for Christmas from the SIX:02 team! It was totally unexpected, and the shoes arrived a few weeks prior. Huaraches are a stylish sneaker; once you get them on, they’re super comfortable. Eventually, I’ll wear these whenever I go running (which will probably be never 🙃). My first wear was last week, and I paired them with a top from MissGuided. I like really like the idea of wearing rocker tees with leather bottoms, and completing the look with an edgy sneaker.
