Daily outfit and style tip, wearing faux fur vest, hot pink cardigan, black skinny jeans
Something’s always funny around here

{ fbff: }

I’ve got twenty tabs open on any given computer, dog-eared magazines are strewn about, there are incomprehensible scribbles in several notebooks, lists of items coveted and I window shop with the precision eye tracking of a true professional.

What does it all mean?

This week, Fashion Beauty Friend Friday offers a simple question: What are the top five trends for spring that you have been looking forward to?

FBFF spring trends, lace
FBFF Spring trends, neutrals and wide leg pants
Neutrals and wide leg pants
FBFF Spring trends, botanical print dress and statement ring
Botanical print dresses and statement rings

In order of appearance:

Lace blouse, Unknown
Lace cuff, WhiteOwl, Etsy
Neutral dress, ModCloth
Wide leg pants, Nanette Lepore
Botanical print dress, Anthropologie
Statement ring, Alexis Bittar

I covet these. They reflect a time of renewal, a gentleness with which to ease into this next season. I want to feel a warm breeze on my skin, I want to smell the flowers in bloom. Perfect for spring, perfect for me.


Thank you Katy of Modly Chic for crafting this question. Friend Friday is an opportunity for fashion and beauty bloggers to share their thoughts on a specific topic and read what others have to say on that same topic.

{ style tip: }

Faux fur vests are one of the most fun trends we’ve seen this past season. They’re warm and soft and are great for layering. They look best over a slim line because they add so much bulk. Keep the shape of your dress simple or your slacks sleek and uncomplicated. Naturally, they’re perfect with jeans.

Do you own any faux fur? How are you wearing it? Is it a vest or a coat? Do you wear it indoors or outdoors? How does it make you feel?

    Nice picks. They’re a little a different to what other bloggers have posted for the FBFF. I love the botanical prints on that dress it’s really classy and the cut is fantastic.

    Lace and wide legged jeans are on my list and I love a floral dress – I am drooling over this one you’ve pointed out from Anthropologie – I love tulips!

    I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with
    the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did
    you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see
    a nice blog like this one these days.
