Top 7 Trends for Spring/Summer 2014

Top Spring/Summer Trends for 2014


I see these EVERYWHERE now and these are a truly hit for me. Every fashionista I know is at least talking about 3 of these trends they will be sporting for Spring. How long will these all be in style? Who knows, but they are getting a lot of lip service right now.

Mules
Open-toed, closed toed, simple, classic is what this shoe entails. The disappearing heel is what makes the shoe unique and eye catching for its interest.



Pastels
This color palette is perfect for the season. Try these hues with white to brighten your outfit for those gloomy and rainy Spring days.

Orange (beauty)
Countless of models, actresses and socialites have been wearing orange pouts. I'm so glad I have Morange by MAC (seen here) in my makeup collection!


Birkenstocks
This high school memory is back! I remember when I had a pair of these in my younger years. These are perfect for those relaxed days enjoying the sun at the park!
Chunky Heels
This modern "mod" trend is straight from the 1960s. Only difference is the height of the heel. Perfect for your simple sundresses!


Snakeskin
Although I loved this trend last year (seen here), I'm excited that it is full on for Spring 2014. A different take take on animal print. Love it!



Neoprene
This fabric saves time on ironing and is ready to wear! Love it for structured looks. Great texture to add to your wardrobe!




Which one of these are you excited to try this year? I'd love to know what you think!

Music Festival Glam OOTD





Top: bebe c/o (similar) | Skirt: Cotton On (similar) (last seen here) | Shoes: Steve Madden (love these) | Bag: Zara | Lips: NYX Matte Shocking Pink (BUY HERE)

It's feeling a bit more like spring time and it's time to enjoy it! During bebe's #springfling event, I picked out this cute and colorful top. This outfit would be perfect at Coachella or any music festival this season. To make this outfit music festival comfortable, pair this skirt and top with a tan floppy hat and brown boots. I may add a black kimono for the chilly nights. But I'm a bit girly so, I paired this with heels for a glam look for the blog. :)

How do you like this look? What would you do different?

ColorBurst




Dress: JCPenney (similar) | Shoes: Steve Madden (similar) | Bag: Aldo (similar) (similar) | Watch: MK (want this) | Hoop Earrings: Aldo (love these)

Last week was the busiest I have been in a while! I was exhausted and had no time to write, so this week you will see multiple posts go up. I've gone to several events including the InStyle + NineWest Collaboration have their photos on my Facebook page if you want to check them out.

Anyway, now it's time to talk about this spring forward dress! I bought this dress for Easter last year and had planned on wearing it for the blog but never got around to it. I had just come from a bridal shower but for a more comfortable and unique look, I paired this dress with  yellow pumps to highlight the small yellow accents in the dress. I decided not to wear much jewelry or accessories because I didn't want to clash those accents with the fabulousness of this dress! lol

These shoes have been sitting in my closet a long while and I barely wear them, but the color of these fit this outfit so perfectly and I couldn't deny them. And to be honest, these were actually in the donate pile at home, so I'm going to try to coordinate these with more outfits to come.

Let me know what you think of this look! Hope you all are having a good week so far!


#TryTMS: Beautiful Textures Texture Managebility System


I've been natural for a year and I have not once thought about straightening my hair. But after seeing the Beautiful Textures: Testure Manageability System work on numerous naturalistas, I was so tempted to try. Only thing is, I vowed to do "no heat" for two years. Bummer!

My thoughts on this system is: it's a winner. During this event, I saw this product be used on all hair types and all of them came out with the same result - shiny and bone straight! No don't get it twisted. This is NOT a perm for natural hair. This is a potent conditioning system to preserve your natural hair's texture and curl pattern without major heat damage.
