A Hint of Spring
[dropcaps]T[/dropcaps]here is a definite hint of spring in the air and I could not be more excited! While it is still not quite warm enough to pull out all my spring wear quite yet, I have been incorporating bright colors in a nod towards what is to come.
In addition to adding pretty, bright colors as I transition to spring looks, I have also been spending time researching and planning ahead. Earlier this year I mentioned one of my goals for the blog was to become more organized so I can offer more diversity with my looks, share more regular style features (they are coming, I promise!), and have the time to engage more with my readers. Well in that effort I’ve been enjoying scouting out fashion styles and trends for spring and jotting down things to try in my Happy Planner. Let’s chat about some of my favorite spots for finding style inspiration!
Pinterest is the very first place I go when I am planning out looks. I just love having highly organized style boards based on occasion, items, and color inspiration. Speaking of color inspiration, y’all know I am all about looking for and trying out different and bold color choices, so when I read that blue and orange is going to be a hot trend this spring you know it is a trend I can totally get behind! For more fun color mixes check out my Color Inspiration board.
I also subscribe to Glamour, In Style and People Style Watch. I still enjoy flipping through the pages of their magazines and reading the articles, but I also check them out on-line for in between updates. Evidently shirt dresses, cold shoulder tops, and cropped kick flare pants will be big trends this year. I can get on board with shirt dresses, and am thinking I will give the cold shoulder a try, but I am not as certain about the kick flares (petite person problems).
Finally, the other place I go to for style inspiration is from my fellow bloggers, whether it be on Bloglovin or Instagram. I follow some amazing style bloggers and enjoy seeing their personal take on style and trends. For a list of my favorites click on the link at the bottom of this page called Blog ♥.
