Black + White

These Spring trends are really giving me life! Although I am sometimes obsessed with crazy accessories, I like for my clothes to look classic and sleek…And nothing is more classic than the Black & White trend. If I could wear black leather pants or black jeans with a white v-neck tee and a blazer (in black, cobalt blue, leopard or a floral print) on a daily basis I certainly would.

I love that this trend can stand alone, but isn’t limited to one look. One could add various colors and patterns to it to add a bit of sass to it. Surprisingly, it can also be mixed and matched with the other two Spring 2013 trends I’ve already mentioned (i.e. mint green and transparent accessories).

Check out some of these looks that are killing the trend below:

I pulled these looks from my board on Pinterest (Clothez and Clutchez). The rest of these lovely pieces are from Zara, Urban Outfitters and Jeffrey Campbell. I actually bought the Femme Fatale tee from Urban Outfitters not too long ago and I am in love with it. I think I am going to really enjoy playing around with this trend because I already have several pieces in my closet that will work. I hope you all enjoyed this post! xx

Spring Trend: Clear Accessories

Back when I was in middle school I had this clear plastic purse that was soooo pressed for. And if I remember correctly, I bought it from Claire’s. I wore that bag until the strap broke! It was one of my staple pieces in 8th grade, although I didn’t realize it at the time.  And somehow, several years later, that trend seems to have creeped back into the fashion world.

Runways were crawling with transparent accessories for Spring 2013 so I thought I would share some of the cute options I’ve seen:

And if you need a little more color, these may be to your liking as well:

Although I don’t plan on investing too much money into this trend, I really am loving it! I may have to snag a clutch or necklace! Those oxfords are calling my name as well. What do you all think of the trend? I knew fashion was cyclical but geez. I am going to start keeping things I don’t wear just in case they come back in style! Lol…

Hope you all enjoyed this post…xxxx

Go Mint

I don’t know what it is about mint green that gets me all excited, but I have fallen in love with a number of mint green accessories this season. The mint green trend has returned once again and is a very popular look for Spring and Summer 2013. So I decided to come up with some fun accessories that I thought you all may love:

As you can see, mint green accessories can be mixed and matched with various metals as well as a number of prints (tribal, leopard, etc.). In the outfit on the left, I love how the model mixes her mint green jeans with a dark sweater/blazer. This look demonstrates that you can easily spice things up a bit by incorporating color into an already chic but conservative look. And the leopard clutch is a great contrast between the light/dark hues.

But if you are one that stays away from bright clothing, consider investing in a mint handbag. Coach and Rebecca Minkoff have designed some great options (pictured above the right). A fun necklace or shoe can also do the trick. And of course, I had to mention at least one nail polish that fits the mint trend (Ciate’s Pepperminty).

So…What Spring trends are you guys excited about? I’ve already purchased some mint green jeans, but I may need to cop one of these cute crossbody bags too!

I hope everyone is having a great week! xx

Rebecca Minkoff SS13 Runway Show

20120921-082557.jpg

Did any of you catch Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Show last week? I watched the live stream online (I think she is totally awesome for allowing people to watch online) and loved every second of it!!!

All of the prints and the ombre clothing…And you know I was stalking all of the handbags! I was also feeling the mint green eyeshadow and mint green nails each of the models was wearing. Check the video out for yourself below:

I loved all of the handbags from the big envelope clutches to the satchels to the cross body bags. I also loved the denim patchwork jeans and jean shorts. Look 26, the African American woman with the black and grey top, and black, white and grey pants, was my favorite!!. Loved it from head to toe. And who doesn’t love a chic classic white blouse? I see she had a lot of those as well.

Wasn’t that awesome? I have to find a way to get my hine pots to fashion week next year. I refuse to be left out anymore! Loves it!!!
