Sunny Days Ahead!

Finally, the snow has begun to melt! I'm just too excited for flowers that I started my week off with floral graphics on both, Monday and Tuesday. 

First place: my graphic, cannot-forget-to-mention coziest sweatshirt by Wildfox.
Second place: my floral jeans by Mother. These pants are always attention-grabbing!

This weekend, I hit the Nordstrom sales rack and found a pair of black high-tops from Ash. Even though, the stereotype of sale might mean "last season," college students can't resist! These are the perfect shoes to transition into warmer weather. I love the hidden two-inch wedge and the plain fact that these are not my snow boots. 

I know trying to get out of this winter funk can be a project, so hit the sales rack! An item like an edgy pair of high-tops add dimension to my feminine floral print. Create a style that is a mixture of feminine and (somewhat) masculine to maintain the perfect balance. 

End your winter in full bloom.

Hey, Sunshine!

 So....six more weeks of winter has been predicted? Luckily, sunglasses will always be a year-round necessity. 

1) I'm obsessing about these gold accents! This detail is fashion-forward but totally worth the statement. Whether you're looking for the Princess Filigree Round Sunglasses from Urban Outfitters, or that still-on-my-wish-list splurge from Dolce & Gabbana; these gold flower vines were meant to reside around your lenses. 

2) Not only are cut-outs making waves through your dress to accentuate a hour-glass figure on Friday night, or through your boots to play peek-a-boo with patterned socks, but with your sunglasses too. Now, shapes are rebelling. For the record: a square + a circle = true love.

3) Get extra terrestrial with the Luna Sunglasses from Wildfox Couture. They are a bit of a splurge for a fun pair of sunglasses; however, they are a great conversation piece for any spring break sunset!
