3 Spring Trend Must Haves

Okay. I struggled to title this post. But ultimately settled with this one because I have deemed these items necessities for Spring --  at least for me. I am not going to tell you to go out and buy these things just because I am, but if you happen to feel inspired to pick up a few of these things, then this post has done its job. Here are just a few things I am pining over this Spring.

1. The Kimono

Forever 21 - Floral Pocket Kimono

 2.The Metallic Shoe

3. The Black  Jumpsuit

Pattern Mixing: Stripes

Okay. There is a lot of stripes going on here. But in my bias option, it works. Because the stripes are so subtle, and because it is all tonal, it's not so in your face. Again, I'm using one one my favourite combinations here too -- a complementary colour mix. You can never go wrong with a blue and orange combo. And that is not my bias opinion, that is pure, design principle fact. Throw a little bit of colour on with a little bit of texture and baby you've got an outfit going.**

Coat | Uniqlo
Scarf | Banana Republic
Skirt and Top | Gap

Shoes | GH Bass & Co. ( From Winners!)

**** And then if you thought of this, that solidifies it.

Big Blooms

Spring. It's almost here! And with that comes a change in scenery. Not only does everything outside start to get more vivid with colour, but so does my wardrobe. I feel more inclined to wear those brightly coloured pants. More confident to wear that brightly patterned top. This Spring, I cannot wait for this Big Blooms trend to take off. Big Blooms meaning, large over-sized florals. Larger than life florals. None of these dainty, intricate florals- I'm talking about huge prints here. I've complied a list of some of the Big Blooms that were taken right from the runway.  See for yourself, they're coming. The big blooms of this season are going to be spectacular!

Found: Faux Sleeve Tie Waste Dress

Okay. I've been pining over the idea of a dress with a faux sleeve tie waste for months now. With this whole 90s grunge revival and shirts being tied around the waist, I was dying for a dress that incorporated this trend. Then, it happened. I saw Jennifer Lawrence on Good Morning America wearing ita dress with faux sleeves tied around her waist.  It was then I knew, it would only be a matter of time before I saw this trend take off.  Finally, I've been seeing dresses that are similar to JLaw's Ulla Johnson dress, popping up here and there. Just recently, I was able to score this amazing dress on ASOS, and now I can finally check this off my to-buy list!
