Spring Investments

Spring hasn’t exactly sprung yet, but I’m already adorning myself in light fabrics and pops of color to melt my winter blues away. Sure, my personal wardrobe may contain loads of mall goth black apparel, but honestly, I do appreciate an introduction of color every now and then. I’ve never been a gal to splurge on pastels for spring, partly because neutral tones are my favorite (but also because the fear of resembling an Easter egg often lingers in my mind). So no, you won’t catch me decked out in the expected pastel and floral get-up this spring, but I do predict these 5 runway looks in my future.

Wide Leg Trousers

I can’t wait to channel vintage vibes with this ultra flattering trend. I love the lean look that a pair of wide leg trousers can create. This trend is available in a wide variety of colors and patterns at stores like Express, Urban Outfitters, and ASOS

Metallics

I received the complete Gossip Girl series on DVD for Valentine’s Day, so please excuse this dated analogy…but I have to say, metallics make me feel like a Van der Woodsen. This trend tends to fade in and out over the years, but when it’s executed properly, it can be oh so glamorous.

Sheer Apparel

I’ve been really into textures lately, so this is a trend I’m dying to invest in. Is anything more chic than a great sheer fabric?

Jumpsuits

I’ve been crazy about jumpsuits since I purchased a slinky black one this fall. Don’t get me wrong- I love dresses, but there’s something so cool and empowering about this alternative one-piece ensemble.

Micro Bags

I’ve always opted for large satchels, but micro bags were all the rage on the spring runways. A dainty doll-like bag is surely worth sticking to the absolute essentials.

It’s been a long time since I rock and rolled.

If I could only pick one music genre to listen to for the rest of my life, I’d dust off my mom’s rock ‘n roll records and make myself at home. There’s a lot to be learned from rock ‘n roll, beginning with rebellion and ending with style. I live for bold shades, thritfted leopard prints, and of course, wild accessories.

ImageWhen Senetha of Coco Rain offered me a $5 coupon code to use in her shop, I immediately began searching for something to add to my expanding collection of accessories. I was ecstatic when I came across these rhinestone round sunglasses, a rock ‘n roll alternative to the typical shades. How can anyone feel less than glamorous when they’re wearing rhinestones?
