So, this has been the winter from hell. Some of the coldest weather this country has seen, across the country, in a long time. Not to mention people I know the world over have been sick not once, but multiple times this winter. So, I say, enough! Come on, Spring! I know you're out there somewhere. I'm looking forward to the days of flowery dresses and open-toed shoes. So, let's look ahead to happier times to come, shall we?
First of all, I'm completely obsessed with the idea of bell-bottom jeans. I love the skinny jean look, but it's everywhere these days. Time for something new. I haven't bought a pair yet, but I'm going to. If only I still had mine from high school. No, I wasn't even alive the first time around, but I have always been fashionable.
Above are similar to what I have in mind, only minus the "worn" patches and holes. That's one look I've never been able to get into. These will look great with a high pair of wedges and a sheer or lace top. Or even with a pair of chunky heels and a classic button-down.
Also, speaking of lace... I love it. Seriously, I can't get enough. It can be so dressy, or it can be totally hippie and laid back. Look at this dress for instance.
You could wear a couple sparkly bracelets, and a big pair of sparkly dangling earrings (with your hair pulled back, of course) with this, throw on a pair of killer high heels and you are elegance personified. Or you could totally mix it up and throw on a pair of ratty cowboy boots and a big floppy hat and you are hippie chic.
Last (for now), but certainly not least, are stripes. It doesn't matter if it's a top or a dress, it's nautical and somehow french, and fabulous. Go ahead and play the look up with red heels and a little hat.
