Spring 2014 Fashionable Colors

Spring 2014 Fashionable Colors

Every season, Pantone releases a series of colors that become a big hit in the design and fashion worlds (you can see the post I created last spring about the chosen Pantone colors). This season, their colors are both soft and vibrant, and a great way to inspire any girl’s wardrobe. In their collection, they included soft pastels like Violet Tulip, Placid Blue and Hemlock (a lovely light green). They incorporated a neutral color, Sand, which is reminiscent of beautiful sandy beaches. Colors like Freesia (yellow), Celosia Orange and Cayenne (red), are feisty and festive and sure way to get you longing for the warm summer sun. Finally, Dazzling Blue and Radiant Orchid (like my prescription glasses) are funky bold colors added to the mix to make the collection pop!

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

3.1 Phillip Lim is putting out a line for Target set to come out on September 15. I am beyond excited for the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target launch. Here are a few (actually quite a few) items that I am dying to try on. I hope that launch opening day is not going to be as crazy as the Missoni for Target launch day because I would really like to get to try on the items before I buy them. Knowing how much people love Phillip Lim, I suspect that it is going to be nuts! I especially cannot wait to see the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target bags in person. I have been dying for one of his bags for a while now. I have one of his belts that I absolutely adore. I am wearing it here!

Check out the ModCloth sale on things for the apartment, handbags & accessories, dresses, tops, bottoms,  and shoes.

ModCloth has a very unique look to their clothes and “stuff” that makes it feel vintage, but does not have the musty smell or the size related risks of buying vintage online. I purchased my bridesmaid dresses from ModCloth and turned many friends on to the site.

ModCloth even has a plus size section that has a ton of cute vintage inspired looks on sale as well.

Bandeau Bathing Suit Summer Trend

Bathing suit season is full swing and bandeau bathing suits are my summer trend alert. This summer, bandeau bathing suit will definitely be a staple around the swimming pool and beach resorts. A strapless bandeau flatters smaller busted women. Beading, ruffles, a twist or tie in the middle, and fringes add depth to smaller breasts.

Cinco de Mayo Outfits

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and personally I am craving a margarita! Of course, I am going to have to wait until after I have the baby to have one, but a girl can dream! Instead on focusing on the margaritas this Cinco de Mayo, I am focusing on the Cinco de Mayo outfits. Here are a few outfit inspirations for Mexican Independence Day, aka Cinco de Mayo.

Outfit #1 for Cinco de Mayo

This Cinco de Mayo outfit is for those of us blessed with flat tummies. If you’ve got it, I say embrace it! This outfit also features one of the Pantone Spring 2013 colors, linen. This skirt will get a ton of use this spring and beyond. It really is a classic. It would look great on women with hips. I usually wear these skirts to emphasize my waist.

Wedge Sneakers

The wedge sneaker trend is being seen everywhere on celebrities and bloggers alike. I’ve had a pair of red converse style wedge sneakers for roughly 10 years that I bought at Payless so I was well ahead of the curve. 😉 They have held up because I take care of them and don’t wear them that often. When I saw wedge sneakers reappear, I decided to give it another try. Once I put them on my foot, I feel in love! Right now, at 25 weeks pregnant, wearing heels is just not happening for longer than 20 minutes. The wedges sneakers allow me to gain some height in comfort.
