Experience Bold, Fun and Beautiful

Bold, bright and beautiful describes spring time. This season it’s all about experimenting with bold colors and exotic patterns. Express yourself through clothing and tons of accessories. An outfit is simply not complete unless accompanied by jewelry, killer pumps and a beautiful purse.
             Some of my favorite local retail stores that have excelled in creating bold colored wardrobe this spring are Kohl’s and Target. You can snag great deals at these retailers due to their outstanding sales all season long. If you are looking to spend a little more cash for even more bold fun, I recommend shopping at Bebe, Neiman Marcus and Michael Kors.

Make a Statement

Big, bold, flirty and fun jewelry shows confidence and whit. Remember the bigger the better when it comes to jewelry. One big piece of statement jewelry is acceptable; don’t fill your fingers with rings! Too much jewelry takes away from an outfit.
 My favorite places to find  fabulous statement jewelry are Charlotte Russe, ExpressNeiman Marcus and Forever 21.
 Don’t be afraid to step out of your element when it comes to fashion. Experiment with different trends to figure out your true signature style!

Guard your Lips

Spring time makeup is important. I am obsessed with one of Maybelline’s newest lip products called “Baby Lips.” These lip balms come in six shades.
 The first shade I bought was called Peach Kiss and is a nude color. I saw a dramatic difference in my lips within a week! My lips were so soft; they truly did feel like “baby lips.” I quickly went back to my local Walmart and bought the shades Quenched, Peppermint and Pink Punch. These colors were also amazing and smelled fabulous!
Besides looking adorable and smelling wonderful, these lip balms are great because they have SPF 15 which will protect your lips from strong sunshine.

The Essential Shoe

A pair of classic boat shoes is mandatory for spring. Boat shoes are in fashion for both men and women. These shoes come in every color imaginable. Most retailers carry boat shoes including but not limited to Journey's, Macy's and JCPenny's. 
 I recently bought a pair of white sequin boat shoes from Journey’s. These shoes match everything and are extremely comfy! Boat shoes are a fashion essential and I encourage everyone to buy at least one pair for spring.

 Join the Tribal Trend

With spring quickly approaching its time to dump your clumpy, heavy sweaters and bring out bold, fun colored tops! One of this year’s biggest spring trends is tribal prints. The tribal trend includes scarfs, tops, shorts, shoes, dresses, jewlery and purses.
Tribal clothing and accessories are going to appear everywhere. They come in extremely fun colors including neon! Tribal patterns are very trendy and fashionable. Tribal print clothing and accessories can be purchased at expensive designer retailers such as Nordstrom's, as well as more affordable stores such as Target and Charlotte Russe.
Tribal print tops look cute paired with cropped denim shorts. These tops also look trendy tied on the side over a bathing suit. You can dress tribal tops up with wedge sandals and a belt, or dress them down with comfy flats. Personally, I love the tribal trend and I recently ordered four tribal inspired tops from Charlotte Russe.
