Until today my disdain for winter has seemed to be the driving force of my blog. The time has come to put the past behind and spring ahead! Today is the first day of spring and I am so looking forward to enjoying the lighter clothing and shoes that this weather calls for. According to Neiman Marcus, the world of fashion will be seeing more of the following this spring:
This blouse from one of my favorite shopping sites, Shein meets the criteria for several of these trends as it is a neutral and off the shoulder. In contrast to the Neiman Marcus styles, it has a tiny little price tag… $9. Here is another beauty that is priced at $7.98
Blouses and shirts that are just slightly over the top… Although I don’t consider this to be over the top, I especially like the Caroline Constas shirt for $395.
More easily affordable is this shirt for $16, although not quite as cute.
Of all the Neiman Marcus items I mention in this post, this Kobi Halpern blouse would have to be my favorite. With ruffles and shoulder cut-outs (hence the peekaboo), it is made of silk and so very girly! Okay. I REALLY want this
Another more affordable option which is similar is this
Not much to say about this trend… I’m all for it if you like slip on shoes. I enjoy slipping on my Old Navy flip flops for a quick walk out into the yard, or over to Mama’s house, but most of my shoes have a strap on the back. Here are some trend pics… actually the first pair are kinda cute and would pair nicely with the ‘ruffles and flounces’ at the top of this post:
Covering the stripes spring trend, as well as the peekaboo and shirting redefined… I love this cold-shoulder striped top by Parker
I would totally buy this if it weren’t $220…
but am more likely to purchase this blue striped blouse
or this grey and white top which offers interest with the split back and is only $13.00
Beads, Tassels, Feathers, Embroidery, Patches, Sequins, Lace! Pop some of these items on a pair of shoes, a handbag, or any item of clothing and you’re on trend! Here is an example of an embellished blouse and these red leg-wrap flats are embellished with fringe:
This one I have covered, starting with the kitty cat bag that my daughter Stephanie gave me last Christmas. There are several other wristlets and cross body bags in my closet so I will likely not be purchasing any new mini bags to participate in the mini bag trend (although this leather elephant bag is adorable).
My new go-to earrings are the Kate Spade infinity and beyond hoops my Mama gave me for Christmas. Neiman Marcus spring trends include earrings that are HUGE and will no doubt make a powerful statement. This will be a trend that will take me some easing in to possibly with these blue stud hoops
