New spring trend: lacy shorts

The first day of spring usually brings with it a nice change of weather and it gives people fresh sense of renewal.

An obvious look for spring is floral and bright prints, but there’s another trend I’ve found while doing mall research.

The trend is lacy cut-off shorts.

This trend can be found in affordable stores like Forever 21 (pictured above) and dELiA*s, but also in more expensive brands like Lord & Taylor, Rag & Bone and Dsquared.

There’s also plenty of websites online that show you how to make them yourself!

In my research I’ve discovered these blog posts with instructions: Craft Classy, By Wilma and Petite-Fashionista.

While I was at the mall I decided to put together a look for you at Forever 21.

Here it is:

What to wear for St. Patrick’s day and the beginning of spring

With St. Patrick’s Day approaching this Sunday and spring just around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect time for…

A spring preview!

Spring is always a great time to bring out the bright colors and Forever 21 has some great affordable pieces this year.

This entire outfit is from Forever 21 and it’s less than $39 all together.

Green striped top – $14.80

Tangerine high-waisted shorts – $19.80

Skinny pink belt – $3.80

Neon yellow/green sandals – $22.80

The neon color trend is still very prominent this year for spring and fall. It’s cute, fun and it goes great with a sunny spring tan.

If you don’t want to wear such bright colors for St. Patrick’s day, a mint green dress or blouse is the way to go. Mint green has become a very popular color recently, and with a bubble or statement necklace and nude heels or wedges, you can’t go wrong!
