TREND WATCH: EMBROIDERY

Every season I get totally hooked on one or two of the seasons biggest trends. For Spring ’16, one is definitely embroidery detailing. I have been seeing it everywhere from Valentino handbags to fun Isabel Marant Etoile belts. It’s totally boho chic (back to my forever trend) and such an easy trend to try. I fell in love this fab Derek Lam 10 Crosby version that I found at Intermix. I mean how insane is the embroidery work? I love how the fit is so simple, but so on point. Since it’s so loud, I paired it with a really basic black croptop turtleneck that I found on Asos (only $20!!).

I am not over the caged heel, so I am happy to see it’s still totally on trend for Spring. I mean it’s the perfect mix of total badass and feminine fashionista, right? When I found these Steve Madden heels that I am wearing, I couldn’t handle that they were not only super well priced but also comfy (seriously!) To top off the look, I grabbed one of my old (but favorite) Stella McCartney clutches. I love pieces like this one that honestly only get better with time (which to me totally validates the price…right?)

One of my oldest accessories that I never tires is my Michele watch. I got it over 7 years ago and I still love it. I just love that I can switch out the band depending on what I am wearing and they always have fun new colors and styles. It’s like getting a new watch all the time!

I am ring fanatic, so I love that wearing mutiple rings is so on trend right now. This criss cross one I am wearing is wallet-friendly but so cute (no one needs to know the diamonds aren’t real, right?).

No outfit is complete without some fun sunnies and I can’t get enough of Illesteva. I currently own 3 pairs and most definitely have my eye on some of their newer styles for Spring.  I just love an accessory with some personality!

MY FOREVER TREND: BOHO FAB

I can’t stop the boho fab trend. I guess my love affair with the revival of the 70’s looks began way back in high school when I lived at the local thrift shops and loved to make my own clothes. Now those sewing days are far behind me, but luckily the trend has not only continued, but thrived. Designers have fully embraced it by creating the most lustworthy long dresses, fun high waisted jeans, fantastic platform suede heels and of course, my favorite, the long sleeved mini dress with just the right swing.

Currently Caro-118.jpgI found this chic little cream mini dress by For Love and Lemons on revolveclothing.com (you soon will see it’s my go-to website for all things fab) and had to have it. The eyelet lace detailing is everything and the fit is easy, with just the right swing (like I mentioned above).

One of my favorite accessories that I paired with this look with is my Gucci tan Soho crossbody. It has this simple square shape and is adorned with a fun little tassle. It’s the perfect size to use day to night. I also threw one of my other favorite boho trends, the gladiator sandal. These gold ones, by Michael Kors, are super comfy and so fun to wear with dresses, skirts and cutoffs in the warmer temps. Don’t they just make you dream of vacay?

Before heading out I grabbed my big floppy hat from Anthropologie and some fun round sunglasses from Urban Outfitters (they are only $18!!) and was set for the day. I just love the ease and simplicity of the boho trend and am so glad it’s stuck around as long as it has.
