Spring Fashion

While I am not your typical OOTD kind of girl, I do consider myself a fashionista.  Though the calendar says that it is Spring, even if it doesn’t feel like it, you should be ready to rock your spring finds and prepare for summer since it is just around the corner.  I am trying my best to stop gravitating toward black, my go to color, and this year I definitely plan to experiment with color as well as print.  Here are a few observations I have made about Spring and Summer fashion trends.

Skin Is In

If you are shy about shoulder, leg or cleavage, then you are going to be left behind.  There are more dresses with splits, distressed jeans, strapless tops and dresses and off the shoulder items than I have seen in a long time. Fashion is becoming more daring and I am definitely here for all of it.  Just check out your latest stores and designers and you will see skin, skin and more skin.

Affordable Fashion

When stars promote stores such as Fashion Nova, and show you that you can be cute, trendy and not broke.  Thanks to stars like Cardi B.  who show us that your don’t have to go broke to look fabulous.  Other stores like Forever 21, JCPenney and GS Love also show us that Plus Size and Curvy girls can look cute and still have some coins left over.  None of the items in this post is over $50.00.

Tribal Prints

While this has been a trend for a few years now, it is not going away.  Especially with all of the stunning prints we witnessed in Black Panther, tribal prints will be around a little longer.  Not just for skirts and headwraps anymore, look for them on jackets, tops and pants.  They are everywhere.

Florals

Another trend that is not going away soon.  I have never really been a fan of florals, however I have found myself with several floral pieces in my wardrobe thanks to the modern and trendy way florals have been showing up lately.  From skirts and tops to swimsuits and dresses, the new modern floral is definitely a trend that I can embrace.

Camo

Not just for the military anymore, camo is everywhere.  The great thing about camo is that it can be worn as a neutral, so you can mix and match it with any color.  One great thing about the new trendy camo is that you can find it in dresses, jackets, pants, and tops.  Another great thing is that it is styled to fit.

Jumpsuits

They are all over the place.  And not just the denim overalls.  There are cute trendy jumpsuits available for all shapes and sizes.  They are available in solids, prints and patterns.  The options are endless.  To me a jumpsuit is a great way to go from work to play with the use of a jacket or sweater, and they can be worn with heels, flats or tennis shoes.  No matter how you style them, jumpsuits are a great on trend item.  (see the two in the floral section).

No matter where you may find yourself on the fashion scale or what your budget may be there is something out there for you.  Whether, floral or tribal, skin exposed or more covered, fashion is always your best accessory.  No matter the season or reason in most cases when you look good you feel good.  So here is to looking good and here’s to find trends that you love at prices you can afford.

TLC is Winning

tlc-is-bring-back-trading-spaces

TLC is at it again.  Just when I decide that I am going to watch less TV, TLC decides to reboot one of my favorite television shows.  I am already a fan of shows such as 90 day fiancé, Say Yes to the Dress, and MY 600lb life, but here they come with the reboot of Trading Spaces, there goes my Saturday nights.  I am just going to have to get more done throughout the week because starting April 7, I will be watching Trading Spaces on Saturday nights.

So anyone that know me know that I am a HUGE fan of HGTV, TLC and any similar channel. I am a superfan of all things home improvement.  From Trading Spaces, to Flip or Flop to Real Estate Virgins, you name I probably watch it or have watched it.  So I do not know how or why or what amazing person was responsible for the reboot of Trading Spaces but I am happy they were able to seal the deal.  I was ecstatic to see that Trading Spaces was coming back.  That was not the best part of the announcement, the best part of the announcement was that they were not only bringing back the old designers and carpenters, minus Amy Winn Pastor, but the original host was coming back as well.

Trading Spaces is the parent of all remodeling, carpentry, redecorating shows with probably Bob Villa being the grandparent.  All of the current shows you see now are the offspring of these ground breaking home improvement shows.  I could spend an entire day in from of the TV watching trading spaces reruns, from the sleek sophisticated designs of Genevive and Vern, to the over the top and outlandish designs of Doug and Hildi, viewers are definitely in for a treat when this show returns to TLC on April 7.

Can you already sense my excitement?  I am so ready for the reboot and I wish they would kick it off with a marathon of all of the old episodes.  I am waiting with baited breath to get back to the OG”S of home improvement, the cast and crew from Trading Spaces. Where are all my other Trading Spaces fans at?  More importantly, will you be watching?
