It seems like it is taking forever for Winter to end. I am so excited for Spring to arrive, it’s all I have been thinking about especially the fashion. After bundling and layering clothing I am so ready to pull out the light jackets, skirts, and most of all, sandals. My style is Bohemian/Trendy. It is a great time to stock up on maxi dresses, flats, sandals, and denim jackets. I am a fan of Bo-ho style clothing such as flat sandals, wooden accessories and long flowing skirts and dresses.

Flat Sandal Alert*** Thanks to the Fashion GODS, comfortable shoes are here to stay. For the sneakerheads, sliders, and sandal lovers there is something in store for you. Comfort does not have to come with a hefty price. If you are a fashionista on a budget, places like Payless, and Target can be your starting point. If price is not an issue the Michael Kors Nadine gladiator sandal is a real looker. Steve Madden also makes a nice comfortable sandal at a reasonable price.

Give ‘em the Cold Shoulder Shoulders are one of the sexiest parts of the body so expose ‘em. Be daring by exposing them wearing a one shoulder top or dress. You will add drama to any occasion by exposing your cold shoulder. The perfect style for sex appeal without going over the top. Give ‘em the cold shoulder with your chic sense of style !

Denim Everywhere Jeans are a must for any season but at this time it’s all about being relaxed, baggy, and cropped. *** pair with a slim top to create a cool contrast !

Me & My Boyfriend *** It’s all about the Boyfriend jeans. A 5 pocket denim with a loose fit with distressed details make the perfect combo with a blazer or leather jacket.

Accessories accessories are vital to any outfit. An accessory is supposed to contribute in a secondary manner, often used to complete and compliment the look. Bold chunky necklace pieces are a staple in today’s fashion. African styles, prints, and patterns are a must. Midi rings and chunky bracelets are a must have. The “choker” necklace has made a comeback but ultimately fashion is what you make of it ! There are no rules in fashion…”Dare to be different” !
