February Instagram Round-Up

I can't believe February is already coming to an end! I am excited though because it means Spring is officially on its way! I wanted to give you a little recap from a few of last months Instagram posts with a bit more description & links to specific items. Enjoy<3

I welcomed February with the flu so I O-D'd on freshly squeezed oj every.single.day!

I use this De'Longhi Electric juicer: get it HERE!
NJ saw it's first big snow storm in February & I stayed in all day & sipped from my lovely snowflake mug! {St. Nicholas Square brand via Kohls}

 February also brought by favorite holiday, Valentines Day! My husband travels for work and had 6 trips last month, one of which had him landing late on V-day. I decided to surprise him with a cozy love fort in our living room where we could relax and catch up on the shows we missed while he was gone. I looked up inspo on Pinterest & got to work. I hung curtains from my chandelier, strung lights from inside & put candles all around..it was awesome! He said it was his absolute favorite gift ever, as was his gift to me; a trip to the Caribbean :) 

Last month I showed you guys a first look at my top Spring 2017 favorites. Trend Recap: One-shoulder tops, Fringe jeans, Embroidered EVERYTHING, Colored sunglasses, Mule heels & flats, Layered necklaces, Cinched bags, Sporty sweatshirts, & Pom-poms galore! 
Some of my favorite online shops: gojane.com, necessarything.com, missguided.com,  forever21.com, & for specific styles..shopstyle.com

I love this crystal chandelier/wind chime my sister gave me for my birthday via Pier 1 & they featured my post on their site! <3 : shop it HERE!

I did my bi-monthly closet clean-out & listed a TON of winter & spring items on my Poshmark closet. You can shop them HERE!

I hope you all have an amazing March & be sure to stay tuned for lots of Spring posts! :)

My Favorite Top 10 Trends for Spring 2017!

Good Morning & Happy Weekend! πŸŽ‰With temps warming up to the 60's today & tomorrow πŸ™ŒπŸΌ my mind is on one thing & one thing only..Spring Fashion!  

If you've been following my blog for a while now, you know that I'm a big fan of trends. I'm constantly researching {πŸ’»⌨️😈} whats trending each season from each fashion week & I always keep an eye out for common themes on all my favorite sites. πŸ‘€πŸ‘€ I wanted to put together this collage of my top favorite picks for Spring 2017 because we're already more than 1/2 way through February & we want to be prepared..now don't we now ladies πŸ’πŸ»πŸ˜‰

Top 10 Trends for Spring 2017!

"Bare Your Shoulders" : It's all about your shoulders ladies πŸ’πŸ» One shoulder, off the shoulder, cut out shoulder.. you name it, you're going to see it! Such a sexy & feminine trend that you can take advantage of whether you're broad shouldered or not..theres a variation out there for you! It's one of the hottest trends & I'm clearly obsessed!

"Officially Cut-Off" : We know that cut-off shorts have been a spring/summer staple since the beginning of time however, I've recently been seeing more & more cut-off capris & now an addition to the trend; fringe jeans.πŸ‘–I think these are adorable to wear with wedges or heels when you want to be casual but still look chic. With a pair of these, you can't go wrong this Spring!

"Itching for these Stitches" : Without a doubt embroidery has to be my favorite trend this coming Spring! I personally have not found a single website where there wasn't some form of embroidery on the home page! From bombers, to blouses, to chokers, to denim jackets; everything is embroidered & mostly with floral prints. If you don't go out & get yourself a beautiful embroidered piece, you will truly be missing out!

"Show Me Those Baby Blues" : When it comes to your spring 2017 sunnies..color is the craze! But of all the bold colorful & futuristic looks to hit the runways during fashion week, the baby blue aviator is by far my favorite. πŸ˜ŽπŸ’™

"Muling Over You!" : The mule has been around for decades, evolving a lot over time..but it's never been a shoe that I've personally gravitated towards..until now! πŸ‘‘😍 I'm loving all the different variations for Spring in all different heel heights & materials. I would pair heeled mules with fringe jeans or a dress, keeping everything classy & cute but still comfortable.πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

"Cinched" : My personal favorite handbag trend for Spring 2017 has to be small cinched bags.πŸ‘› They're big enough to fit your essentials without getting in the way or overpowering your outfit. I'm seeing a lot of laser-cut prints as well as quilted & embellished..loving them all!πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

"Lacquered in Layers" : One of my favorite things about spring/summer fashion is wearing long necklaces over lightweight blouses & tee's. I love to playing around with different length pieces to give my outfit added interest. Luckily, layering necklaces is a huge trend for this spring season.πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ It's so easy & effortless; just keep the necklace on you wore all day & simply slip on a long pendant overtop when you want to change it up or dress up your look! πŸ’πŸ»

"Bar-Scene" : If you have an Instagram account, there's no doubt in my mind that you've seen these bar bangles go viral over the past few months. Ranging anywhere from $10-$1,000, they're becoming a stacking staple for both men & women with all types of styles. I'm obsessed with mine & my husband loves his too πŸ˜Š

"Chic Sweat" πŸ’¦ : You've probably already noticed an obscene amount of ridiculously cute sweatshirts hitting your favorite stores over the past few months. Sporty-chic sweatshirts have EXPLODED & these statement sweats are definitely not just for "bumming it!" I've seen so many fun styles with added embellishments, front & back cut-outs, & of course, laced up. It's the perfect piece for transitional weather!😊

"Shake your Pom-Pom" : That's right, the pom-pom is not going anywhere anytime soon! This trend has much evolved from just being on the trim of beach bags, hats & sandals. I'm now seeing it on tops, dresses & now mostly on jewelry! I will admit, I'm a huge fan & I think if worn properly (not too overkill).. its a super cute & wearable trend. 

Thanks for stopping by & enjoy your 3-day weekend! OH!..& if you're from Jersey..enjoy the spring weather too! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ☀️ πŸ™Œ☀️  - XO Kate
