Hey hey sweetie pies, Happy Thursday! I hope you guys have had a fabulous day! I can't help but think about Spring. Spring fashion is so much fun! With the change in the seasons quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to experiment with fashion! I definitely have my eyes on some trends that I am eager to try this season. Check out what items I am curious to try this season. What trends are you looking to try this Spring?

Mesh Dresses
We first started seeing mesh this past fall and I am pleased to say that they will be seen again this Spring. Try one in a pastel color or opt to throw a sheer one over denim. No matter your personal style or aesthetic, you can find one that matches your fly. I selected a few that caught my eye and some are currently on sale! Check out how I would style this trend below.

***Bonus Tip: Don't put those snakeskin shoes away just yet. They can compliment white so well - especially when they are paired with marble or other neutral colors!***

Clear Handbags
This next trend may not be for everyone but this one has caught my attention lately. I have seen this in a lot of street style photos from Fashion week. They are a number of different styles you can try with this style bag. You can opt for a tote where a large pouch is included so you can keep private things well, private. You can try out a small clutch for a night out. Just make sure to put your cards/cash in a card pouch/wallet. :) I also linked a more casual everyday option below.

***Bonus Tip: With a clear handbag, you are already making quite the statement but why not add to the fun?! Look for fun and unique accessories to complete the ultimate urbanista look!***

Statement Earrings
I am pleased to say that statement earrings are making another round on the Train of Trends! Statement earrings can be the perfect compliment to a chic updo or silky blouse! When done tastefully they can add the perfect amount of sophistication to your look. Add these earrings and let them do all the talking - you won't need any other jewelry! I linked some gorgeous pairs below that are worth taking a look at - all are super affordable as well!

Paper Bag Waist Pants/Shorts
These bottoms are great for cinching in the waist or to camouflage that food baby. They are normally styled high waist - flattering for every body type. Whether styled with a t shirt and sneakers for casual wear or a blouse and heels for an evening out - this trend is definitely one to look into this Spring!

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.

To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
