I’ve been experimenting with different trends lately. There are some trends out there that I don’t necessarily love, but for the sake of change, I try to give them a shot. I fell in love with this sheer maxi skirt. Although, I usually stay away from maxi and flowy skirts [I am short], this one caught my attention. I absolutely love leopard print, and I lately haven’t given it any attention. I wanted to make-up with it today and wear it out!

Here are the details:
Top from H&M, leather jacket from Forever21, flats from TJMaxx, belt from Forever21, skirt from Lulu’s, chains from Arki Jewelry, bracelet from Target, ring from Hautelook.

2012 Spring Trends

We all can feel the spring approaching. As I was driving to work this morning, I noticed how it wasn’t as dark anymore. The sun actually came out earlier than what it had been doing for the past few months. This observation instantly drew a smile on my face and lifted my mood (I am sure we all can agree that driving to work, at 6am in the morning, is not the ideal thing to do!).

Spring is my favorite season of all, especially when you live in Virginia. Virginia has one of the worst winters (well not this year, at least we haven’t seen anything yet), and it has one of those nasty hot and sticky humid summers; therefore, spring and fall are the best seasons in this state. However, spring always wins!

Spring = bright sunny skies + a nice breeze + Easter + Blooms + Cherry Blossom in DC + My Birthday! On top of all that, this year Spring 2012 means Pastel colors + Neon colors+ A-symmetrical skirts + Spikes and studs + Chunky Chain Accessories + tiny jewelry pieces + Brogue shoes + loafers + and another trend that is going to help us transition from winter to Spring and stick with us for a while is the Ankle Boot!

Here are a few ankles boots that you can put your hands on. I have 1, 2, 3 as my favorites. I think they would look extra cute with a bodycon mini neon skirt, a flowy pastel sheer shirt, a couple layers of chain necklaces, a stackable rings, and finally a subtle eye look with a bold lip color!
