Do you ever have those days where you feel like you’ve been cold long enough and you’re just itching to wear your new spring clothes? Or any spring clothes? Or just not feel like your in a freezer 24/7? (those in Southern California need not to reply). Well, I’m having one of those weeks. So I decided to vent about it on Twitter yesterday (well, it was more like one tweet). And then do a blog post about it, naturally.
I’d really like to see a little more of this…
One of the biggest trends seen on the runways for Spring 2013 is simple, straight-forward and a great canvas for fun accessories…it’s black and white. Whether you’re pairing a white top with black pants or going for a black and white printed dress, it’s such a simple trend to incorporate into your wardrobe and it’s one you can start wearing right now!
What better way to kick off the new year than to wear next season’s biggest trend this season?
Whether you like it or not, pleated skirts and dresses are making a comeback for Spring ’12. I’ve owned some pleated pieces here and there but I’ve never wanted more pleats in my life until this season. With various lengths, colors and even prints…there are such great pleated options out right now!

Prada Spring ’12 especially blew me away with the pleats because the color combinations were just unbeatable. Let’s be honest, when does Prada NOT kill it? Exactly…
Short skirts, mid-calf dresses, asymmetrical skirts, maxi dresses. Bright, metallic, pastel, neutral. They’re all pleated…and they’re all awesome. Here’s some of my favorites.
Which pleats will you be wearing this Spring?
Although tangerine is said to be the biggest color for Spring 2012, mint isn’t far behind…and I’m beyond obsessed. It started with this Acne sweater and led to a full blown obsession. Whether it’s a super pale green or a vibrant pastel (yes, it exists) I am absolutely loving minty fresh fashion for Spring. Who am I kidding? I’m loving it right now!
Here are some of my favorite mint finds of the moment…
Tibi Long Sleeve Shift Dress
Rag & Bone Stretch Denim Leggings in Vin Biscay
(which I happened to pre-order the other day)
Proenza Schouler Zebra-print Knitted Cotton-Blend Sweater
Miu Miu Suede Pumps
J. Crew Vintage Cotton Tank
Chloe Madeline Patent-Leather Duffle Bag
Acne Shore Oversized Chunky-Knit Cotton Sweater
Will you be wearing mint this Spring?
I got a great little package this week from Neiman Marcus with an amazing neon Spring 2012 trend book. Not only is the cover my ideal color but the first Spring trend I opened to is…PINK.
I was pretty inspired by the vibrant pink collage, so I thought I’d make my own and share my favorite pink finds from around the web. The best part is, almost all these pieces can be worn NOW. Let’s be honest, nothing’s better than a pop of color during the drab winter. And although pastels are also a huge trend for Spring ’12, I’m loving the combination of light and bright colors in the same outfit. Something I’ll be experimenting with…coming soon 🙂
