I am so excited to share my first guest post with you! I recently met April of April Golightly at the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference in New York City. April has come up with a great list of spring staples to share with you!
Spring is here and it is time to break out the spring staples that can be worn all spring and summer long.
1. Something Yellow
Yellow was all over the spring ready to wear runways and who am I to disregard this happy color. Yellow has an uplifting ability that will brighten your day and the days of the people around you. If you are frightened of a full yellow outfit, I recommend buying a yellow accessory to add a pop of color, like a pair of yellow shoes or yellow belt. If the color looks great on you, embrace it and rock it as much as possible this spring.
2. Jean Cut-Off Shorts
Just like a good pair of jeans, denim cut off shorts go with everything in the spring and summer. I highly recommend hitting up your local Good Will and searching for pair of Levi’s that you can cut off yourself. Places like LF are charging $150 for the same shorts and you can probably get a perfect pair for $8.00 at the local thrift store. All you need is a scissor for this DIY project. I made my own cut offs and wear them constantly. You can also control the length by doing it yourself. To me that control is priceless.
3. Over-sized Sunglasses
As the sun gets more powerful, if you aren’t already wearing sunglasses on a daily basis, you better start protecting your eyes now! I am huge fan of over-sized sunglasses that cover as much skin as possible. You are protecting both your eyes and the precious wrinkle prone skin around them.
4. White Sandals
White sandals are a spring staple that just adds a fresh feel to any outfit. There are so many different heel heights and styles to choose from that any women can find a pair of white sandals that suits them. I splurged on mine since I know I will get use out of them. The Valentino Bow Flip Flops are iconic and I get compliments on them literal every time I wear them!
5. Mint Jeans
Mint Jeans are the new blue jeans for me. This color has become my new fave. You must have them in your wardrobe as they can go with almost any top. Don’t underestimate the mint!
Neon this and neon that. I’ve seen neon everywhere lately. Neon was a major fashion trend back in the 80′s and until now it was almost unimaginable that it would come back in style.There is just something about adding a pop of color to a basic outfit. Color is lively, it has a way of instantly changing the look and feel of an outfit. You can easily pull off a hot neon look by pairing it with basic colors such as white, off white or grey.
If you are looking for a way to add a bold statement to your spring and summer wardrobe neon is the way to go! Neon colors are statement makers and they say “Hey, look at me!” In a good way.
I love makeup! Especially fun makeup. I remember my days as a Cheerleader in High School and having to get my makeup just right for games and major competitions. I recently received a product sample of the Natural Shadow Palette from BA Star, an online retailer of professional makeup for people who require high fashion makeup such as Cheerleaders, Dancers, Runway models, and Theater actresses.
I recently tried on a few of the colors from the palette. Overall, it has a great combination of colors for a natural look and the added glitter is perfect for that extra pop. The shadows went on smoothly but I would recommend wearing primer as for me the shadow came off in a few hours. While the shadows are great colors, they are glittery. I would not say the palette is for everyday use, its more for use on special occasions or for going to a nice lounge on the weekend. The Natural Shadow Palette from BA Star is a good price only $8.75. If you are in search of colors that pop, there are several other great palettes to choose from including a smoky eye, blue and pink palette. Not only does BA Star sell makeup it also sells hair accessories and cosmetic bags and you can even create a customized eye shadow kit. The makeup is really geared toward a specific audience but based on my experience with this palette it can be useful to anyone who wants a little extra glam.
I love saving! BA Star is offering a 50% off reader discount, use discount code: BBSMOKY at checkout.
