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!

As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
