Spring Trend Predictions

 Through magazines and advertisements, I've come to see a trend in the fashions and styles of the new Spring Season. Here are my predictions.

Brightly colored skinny jeans are going to be big for Spring.  Just look in any retail store in your local mall...they're already out there! I got myself a yellow pair :) Which color will you choose?

Cascading braids are a little complicated, but worth it. Braids and little twists are going to keep appearing through Spring.

Colorblock is so cute on dresses, nails, and tops.

Baseball tees are going to become a "thing" again, as they show off your sporty side while still showing off your curves.

Polka dot jeans! A new trend for Spring I can't wait to try!

Kitten heels and floral patterns.  I don't think either ever went out of style, but they're making another appearance this Spring.

Shark tooth necklaces.
Dun na. Dun na. Dun na dun na dun na dun na.

Cat eyes. I've been trying them out since winter break, and I gotta say - they are purrrrfect for Spring.

Tribal patterns. I noticed this trend in the Fall of 2011, and I'm thrilled it's kept in the game for Spring.

Have a great weekend :)

Spring is in the Air

Is it just me (or maybe Cincinnati) or has the weather been unusually...spring-like lately?
I'm sure this is due to many different factors involving climate control, El Nino, and other world changing events like that (Global Warming, anyone?).  But this post is not dedicated to science (I'm saving science for my Bill Nye the Science Guy post).  No, this post shall be dedicated to all things spring - even if the groundhog predicts six more weeks of winter. 

Here are the things about spring that make me sing.

I can't have a post about spring without talking about flowers.  Doesn't this picture just bring out your inner desire to romp?

New season, new reason to break out the Nikon.

Nothing says "Spring is here!" quite like waking up to the smell of freshly cut grass.

With spring comes sunlight - and I'm always down for some sunlight :)

The warmer climate brings out the inner dreamer in me. Time to dream new dreams and make them happen.

The quote on this one doesn't exactly match up with this post.  However, I found the movement of the picture refreshing.  Spending time getting lost in the woods is one of the many perks to warmer weather.

One thing that I've missed dearly since "winter" decided to make its way - the song of birds.  Hearing a bird sing at any time of the day is an instant mood lifter.

Bye-bye bare branches, hello blossoms :)

Blow on this flower of a weed and make a wish as the seeds float to the ground.

Spring is a time to sit back and think about your next move in life. But never forget how far you've already gotten.

Have a beautiful false spring :)
