Although Tom's might not be in your price range (this pair costs about $250) you can pick up a cheap pair from Forever 21, Target or even a vintage clothing store for pretty cheap.

So wake up and smell the roses, go get yourself some cute floral patterned frocks and shorts and you'll be set for summer.

Fringe Binge

Fringe Binge
Fringe is on everything! From bags to boots, the magazines suggest that it's a definite Spring DO.

Nothing says spring like white pants

Nothing says spring like white pants
From Vogue to Harper's Bazaar, white pants are a constant staple piece for Spring. I have this pair and I got them from American Eagle. They're stretch jeans, which makes them really comfortable. **Keep in mind that American Eagle jeans tend to run a bit bigger than other jeans, if you are regularly a 5, I might suggest a 3. I am a 3 but I wear a 2 and sometimes a 0. So just make sure you try them on!

The trench coat

The trench coat
Trench coats are IN. Whether they're long, cropped, water proof, or suede, these coats are a must have.

The "boyfriend" blazer

The "boyfriend" blazer
The "boyfriend" look is all the rage in 2010, from boyfriend jeans to boyfriend blazers. Basically, if you don't already own one, get one.

Spring nail polish

Spring nail polish
Unusually, this year's spring nail polishes are not bright and obnoxious like usual. They're quite the opposite actually. In many magazines (and on my nails right now) are shades of dirt brown polish. My theory is that this spring is all about natural, so these brown earthy tones are really in for nail polish.

Brooke Shields, need I say more?

Brooke Shields, need I say more?
I'm completely inspired by Brooke Shields' looks in her younger days. Her natural blue eyes, chestnut hair, and pail pink lips are to die for in this picture. This is my perfect combination.

Black is back! Wait... did it ever leave?
Black is something you can always count on seeing at any fashion week, during any season, in any year. It is a timeless fashion and definitely worth having.

Effortless beauty

Effortless beauty
A clean and natural look is totally IN for spring. So ditch the heavy foundation for a new light weight powder, in many beautiful shades. I have had Bare Minerals makeup for a year now and I absolutely love it. My favorite product is the Bare Minerals All-Over Face Color. I own it in Faux Tan. It gives your skin a nice, subtle glow, without looking too orange. It's perfect for a "natural, no makeup" look.

Oh my lord, lace!

Oh my lord, lace!
Lace is all the rage this Spring. If you don't feel like splurging on a new lace dress, I suggest going to a local vintage shop, they are notorious for lace, lace, lace and did I say lace?

Tis The Season

Tis' the season to be jolly. I haven't had much time to continuously update my blog, which saddens me in many ways, but nonetheless I am going to try and be more frequent at writing and updating it. That shall be my New Years Resolution, now that I think of it... any who, with winter comes many new changes in fashion and many new opportunities to show your true fashion capacity. In the warmer seasons, it is very easy to throw a cute sundress and some wedges on and be fashionable, the winter tends to "limit" the certain things you can wear. However, winter is one of my favorite fashion seasons because it allows you to layer. Layering is extremely important in the winter seasons because a.) you want to stay warm and b.) you want to stay fabulous. There are many easy tips that I can give to help you turn your summer wardrobe into a winter wardrobe, and here are a few:

1. Pair summer shorts with black/grey wool leggings or knee high socks for the ultimate winter combo.
2. Do the same with skirts and or dresses.
3. Layer t-shirts with knit wool sweaters.
4. Wear wool socks with your heels/flats.
5. Accessorize using chunky knit scarves and hats to add an instant winter-y feel.
6. Put your light denim jacket underneath your heavy leather coat.

Although there are many more tips I could give, the only way to truly extend your wardrobe into the winter, is to experiment. See what looks good together and rock it!

Sincerely, 
your fellow fashion blogger.

PS. Stay fashionable ;)
