Spring Staples

Spring trends often times fall into the same three categories: bright, floral and flow-y. When the weather finally starts to get warmer I like to carry over some of the trends and pieces from fall and winter and mix them with traditional spring trends to create a unique look. This Tobi romper is a classic spring piece with the blush tones and light structure. To make the look a bit more complex, I paired it with an army green bomber jacket. This jacket adds an edgy vibe to the look while still framing the romper and allowing the pattern and shape of the piece to pop even more. I am always a fan of the sporty chic look so I had to include one outfit with sneakers. Superga sneakers are a classic in my wardrobe, and I chose these plum ones to match the deeper tones in the romper, bringing the whole outfit together. The sneakers complement the lipstick which is also not a traditional spring-time tone.

As we enter summer concert and festival season I find myself gravitating more towards pieces like this romper. I am used to scrolling through my Instagram explore page and seeing hundreds of intricate and complex bohemian looks that people put together at festivals. These outfits are often frustrating to me because people are just dressing for the event and for the pictures but not for their own style. I love the simple boho look because it is more suited to my personal style. This Tobi romper has the larger, cropped bell sleeves and a tassel belt. The simple colors and pattern as well as the traditional silhouette of the piece allow it to be both modern and bohemian. I paired the romper with some more Coachella inspired accessories. This cross-body bag adds more movement and fun to the outfit with the fringe. The purse also matches the espadrille slides perfectly. These shoes are on trend and are extremely comfortable. The fringe detail on the slides is subtle but adds that final touch to tie the whole ensemble together.

One of my favorite trends for spring 2017 is the crazy sleeve trend. There is so much you can do with this trend because it is so versatile and it can really fit any style. Even the 80s shoulder pads and big sleeves are coming back into style (not exactly my personal favorite but I’m sure many people are happy about this). This Tobi top incorporates the pastel, off-the-shoulder and crazy sleeve trends all in one affordable piece. This top offers a more wearable option for the crazy sleeve trend. The hem of the shirt also hits at the perfect spot for high waisted shorts or jeans. The cropped jeans with a slight flare show off my favorite wedges. I wore these shoes most recently to my sorority formal and to my high school graduation so they hold a lot of great memories. They are the perfect mix of glamour and bohemian vibes with the lace up tassel detail.

Grammys 2017 Red Carpet Trends

The Grammys are always an interesting event in regards to fashion. So many iconic and memorable looks. Let us never forget JLo and her 2000 plunging dress and more recently, Lady Gaga’s 2016 tribute to David Bowie. The most obvious standout this year was a fairly unknown African American artist, Joy Villa, who wore a dress with President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” along with “Trump” along the train of the gown. This could be a “love Trump’s hate” type of message or maybe she is a supporter. Either one, I don’t think this stunt will keep her in the limelight for long.

Now for the more exciting news on the red carpet. Some of the major trends of the night crossed all genres. We saw plenty of keyhole cutouts, some more risqué than others (@JLo again). here are some of the stars from country music to pop performers who rocked this look.

Jennifer Lopez
Faith Hill
Demi Lovato
Carrie Underwood

The red carpet was also lit up by many other stars who decided to rock the metallic trend. Heidi Klum finally has come out of her fashion slump with this awesome metallic mini. Although Heidi is on her way out a slump, Katy Perry may be on her way in with this ill-fitted look. Here are the stars that blinded us with their metallic ensembles.
