Spring into Style!
Two weeks ago, I came back to Seattle after a relaxing week in Palm Springs. The transition wasn't so bad. Mid-90s in Palm Springs, near 80 in Seattle. I happily wore short sleeves, capris, sandals, and a dress one day. But these last few days feel more like March than May. What's the deal?
Thankfully, there's plenty of bright-colored denim, flirty dresses, and colorful sandals that will brighten up even the grayest of Seattle afternoons. And it's almost June, which means July isn't too far away, which really means...summer is almost here!
So in the meantime, spring into style with these top trends:
1. Colored Denim
If you're too freaked out to wear neon pink jeans, ease your way into the trend with cobalt blue, mint green, or soft coral. Coral is essentially a neutral that will go with nearly anything. And cobalt blue looks stunning paired with a complementary color like orange, or simply pair it with a crisp white blouse. Try J. Brand or Current/Elliott, both designers make super cute skinnies in electrifying hues.
2. Summer Dresses
Like denim, I'm loving all the bright-colored dresses everywhere. Citrus, fuschia, and blue ombre minis and maxis stand alone and don't need too many accessories paired with them. If you're heading to a beach for a little spring vacation, look around for maxi dresses by Gypsy. They're light,airy, and look stunning with a flat sandal and a chunky bangle.
3. Knits and Lace
I just found an amazing dress from Sway & Cake on 6th and Stewart by Eternal Sunshine Creations Clothing. Simple, fun, and heavy enough that it won't snag on my purse. The detailed embroidery made it worth the price! Lace is also so sweet, simple, and elegant. I've seen them on skirts, shorts, tops, swimwear, and pretty dresses. Pair a white lacy top with medium-wash denim or soft prints.
