2017 Spring Fashion Trends!

Hello my awesome readers! It is finally that time of the year again where the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the winter coats are being stuffed back into our closets! That’s right, the beautiful weather is finally upon us and that means that it is time to take a look at the new years must haves!


Crop Tops and Long Sleeve Wraps

Personally, I feel like I have always worn this type of outfit in the Spring, Summer, Winter, and Fall!  This outfit combines the perfect amount of skin to be shown mixed with the correct amount of coverage to keep you warm during a beautiful but chilly Spring breeze.  This look is so simple to dress up with a beautiful layered necklace or a simple choker.

Flow-y Tops

Flow-y tops are great for this type of weather. It does not matter if you are going for a Bohemian Chic look or a Street Chic look, you can truly dress up any flow-y top with the right accessories and the right pair of bottoms! The flow-y shirt in either a sheer long sleeve form or a thicker short sleeve shirt is the perfect trending item for our coming season.

Laced Up Tops

All that is in the media today is the beautiful and inventive laced up top. I personally own about five of them because I feel that each one of them has a different personality (if that makes sense). These shirts have been worn by many celebrities like Bohemian Queen Vanessa Hudgens, Kim Kardashian, GiGi Hadid, and many more!

Long Sleeve Dresses

When it comes to long sleeve dresses in the Spring time it does not matter whether or not you are wearing a tight, loose, or flow-y dress, it all comes down to how you style it!  I can honestly say that I have not noticed as many floral print dresses as I have the past few years. Don’t get me wrong, floral print in Spring will ALWAYS be a trend, however, I feel like this year the trending colors, if you will, are light pastel colors such as lavender, mint, pink, yellow, blue, etc. A few more trending colors if you are trying to go more on the darker side are raisin, royal blue, and grey.

Ripped Jeans

I feel as though ripped jeans will always be in style, but, it’s all about the amount of rips in your jeans as well as the ‘fit’.  This Spring it’s all about the details, so, I have noticed a lot of the jeans in our media are more about the color and fit yet less about the rips. Try purchasing a jean that contains little to medium rips with a beautiful style that fits you like a glove! You can truly complete your flow-y top or crop top look with the right pair of pants!

Skater Skirts

Skater skirts have, in my eyes, always been absolutely adorable! These skirts look great with a tight tank top, a crop top, or a tight blouse with a nice pair of high heels. This style of skirt is definitely a Spring trend!


Pointed Toe Flats

Pointed flats will always be a Spring trend! There are so many different colors and fabrics of shoes to pick through. You can pick from different pastel colors or dark colors and from ‘shiny’ shoes to faux suede and much more! These shoes complete any Spring outfit.

These sandals add such definition to a woman’s legs and add that extra ‘oomph’ to an outfit! You can do lace wedges, laced up wedges, or ‘strap-py’ wedges. Either style you choose is perfect for Spring!

You can dress up any look with the right necklace! A lot of trending necklace looks right now are; layered necklaces, chokers, and bohemian style necklaces like a dream catcher or a beautiful crystal.

The always stylish and always trending multiple rings! You can dress up your fingers to your hearts desire and have fun doing it while completing your Spring outfit!


Sunglasses are always fantastic for 1. blocking the sun out and 2. finishing off your look! Personally, I have purchased my sunglasses from Fossil, Target, and Cheap Ass Sunglasses!

2016 Fashion Trends

2016 is coming to an end. Can you believe we are just a month and a half away from 2017?  This year’s fashion was pretty awesome if we had to say so ourselves. While we are eager to know about the fashion trend predictions of the upcoming year, let’s go back and take a look at the top fashion picks of this year which are still currently trending. Keep reading to see what our favorite trends were from 2016.

The Shirt Dress

This is a perfect outfit for the summer and spring season. The shirt dress is basically a long t-shirt that goes up to the middle of the thighs or of knee length. If you love outfits that hug and flaunt those curves, then you can never go wrong with the shirt dress. Pair that baby with a pair classic sneakers or thigh high boots and make a statement.

The Choker

The choker has been on the top of the list when it comes to accessorizing any outfit for this year. Trendy and chic, the choker looks elegant with so many versatile outfits, it’s hard to make it look like a fashion blunder. It looks good with an all black ensemble, a classy dress or the casual t-shirt and jeans. The choker comes in various colors, some with laces on it, a few which have a small pendant hanging from it. This is a piece of accessory which we all need in our wardrobes.

The Camel-Coat

This shade of ochre, basically the color of the skin of the camel is now the new black. The camel-coat is the only layer you’ll need to rock any outfit this fall and here are a few reasons why:

  1. This shade is perfect for the fall
  2. It goes great with any kind of outfit of any color
  3. It is comfy and stylish.

That’s all the convincing you should need to buy the fabulous camel coat on your next shopping spree.

The Classic Boy-Friend Jeans

This piece of clothing can never get old. A basic but a classic. The best way to pair it this season is to wear it with a chambray shirt which is the new fad. We are not talking about an extremely distressed and ripped pair of jeans but a faded one with a slight rip at the knees is what we are really loving right now. As for layers and shoes, a crisp blazer and for shoes, we give you two options; converse/vans sneakers or nude pumps.

Our Love For Sneakers This Season

This year is all about sporty sneakers rather than the classic high heel. We do love the occasional dose of bold platforms, block heels, or even loafer slides but can we just take a moment to talk about how the sneaker has taken the fashionable footwear world by a storm? The most recent one and the most fabulous one is the Converse Nude Collection, Fall-Winter 2016. That collection is SO worth obsessing over! Also, just another side note for my sneaker lovers, the Adidas Superstar sneakers are definitely something to look at!

There you have it, the top 5 current fashion trends for 2016. Have you been rocking any of the trends listed? Leave us a comment below on your favorite Fashion accessory! Let’s see what 2017 has in store for us in the Fashion world!

OOTW: Outfit Of The Week!

Hello beautiful readers, as we all know, I am one who adores the season that is Fall.  However, I do not love it because of everything pumpkin, nor apple picking, nor cuddling on a cool Fall night. Nope, I love Fall because of the change is Fashion! I am nothing but a simple girl with a strong urge to shop so I thought I would get a head start on my Fall Haul and show you guys my favorite Outfit Of The week thus far!

Recently I ordered this INSANELY cute sweater from Charlotte Russe that I am in LOVE with! It’s super cozy, has that ‘cold shoulder’ affect to it, and it is nicely tapered to shape the body perfectly! Like any stitch sweater it’s bound to get some pulls so stay away from jumping dogs and hair brushes…

Next I’ve paired this sweater up with a pair of leggings because what’s Fall without a pair of basic leggings? To me, you can really wear leggings with anything, unless, you know, they’re multi-colored. Basic black leggings to me create that long leg look especially when you pair those ‘long legs’ with tall black boots. That is the perfect Fall matchup.


Last but certainly not least I recently received a pair of sunglasses from this website called Cheap Ass Sunglasses! I wasn’t too sure what to expect when I received the glasses in the mail but for the price, they are not half bad! They are honestly super cute, very Bohemian Chic (at least the pair I ordered) and you know what? For $10.00 US they’re good to have in a pinch! They actually work with a wholesale sunglasses distributor who clearly have great taste in sunglasses called Solo-Solis! Are you looking for wholesale sunglasses? Visit the website and you can order, even if it is a small amount!  So, Cheap Ass Sunglasses, you got my vote! Definitely take a look at both websites! Solo-Solis to see where they get their products from and Cheap Ass Sunglasses if you want to buy them! I will link the ones I received down below just incase you’re interested!
