Spring Trends I'm Looking Forward To

Well the sun finally showed her beautiful face this last week in beautiful France and I was so excited.  It is funny something as small as the weather can change your attitude so drastically!  I would be a complete wreck if I had to live in Alaska.  Oh goodness, that wouldn't be pretty...

So needless to say, I am looking forward to spring and summer.  Probably most likely for the clothes.  It's hard to try and look cute when you have to wear huge jackets over every outfit.  Most of my clothes are for spring and summer anyway, so it works out perfectly!  Here are some of my favorite trends coming up this season.

Orange and Blue.  I saw this a ton when I was in Sweden and I love it.  It is a florescent or bright orange with a navy blue.  It's a fun combo and a bit different and apparently it is all the rage this season.  I am definitely gonna give this one a try.  (Both images from kendieveryday.com so if you're gonna pin them, pin them from her site!)

Floral.  Isn't this just the definition of spring?  Flowers in bloom, beauty and colors everywhere?  Yes, yes it is.  And I have a beautiful flowery top that will work just fine.  Try a floral dress or top paired with some skinny jeans.  Beautiful way to brighten up your outfit!


Pastels and Brights.  Now I am not a huge fan of pastels, I'd rather have bright orange or pink, but this spring it's trendy.  Think Easter on your clothes.  Brights work for spring as well and are a perfect transition to summer.  You can go full out color blocking with orange, pink, and purple or if you are a bit nervous about being too bright item with a neutral or pastel for a perfect transition.

Bust out the skirts!  It's time ladies.  It's time.  We can start wearing our skirts and dresses that have been stuffed away for these cold winter months.  If you're like me you might need to start with some nylons, you know, to not scare people and all.  Or start with tea length-ish skirts, showing just a little leg at a time! Either way, it is nice to be able to switch it up a bit.
How beautiful is this skirt and top?
That's it folks!  Of course there are more trends this spring, but these are the ones I am most looking forward to.  In fact, next week I am sharing some spring trend 'how-to' over at The Sits Girls.  Be sure to check it out.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!!

I'm not a huge fan of pastels, either, but I'm sort of buying in to the mint trend. i really like that color.
Thank goodness for sunlight! :)
