FBFF Post - Spring Trends

Today's Fashion Beauty Friend Friday  (FBFF) topic hosted by Modly Chic is on Spring Trend


What are the top 5 Spring trends that you are looking forward to seeing/sporting this season? (Can be anything from makeup, shoes, accessories, clothing, etc..)

So, I wish I had more time to prepare as I have seen sooo many cool items for each category but right now don't have time to look each one up. I still tried to get at least a couple examples that are you know in somewhat attainable price.

1. Floral Schiffon Dresses



2. Color Blocking
So you have all seen the pages and pages of the gucci ads that support this style at crazy prices that I definitely can't even touch. The idea is that pairing items in bright solid colors. My faves are blue and purple, orange and pink, red and purple, rust and aqua, yellow and bright pink.
Just to give an idea here are some from shopbop's look book but sorry crazy prices...






3. Maxi Skirts (and dresses):
I find buying dresses as more versatile since you can always wear a top over them and turn them into a skirt.
I am partial to stripes and tribal patterns...



















Striped skirt and paisley print skirt from Forever21.com

4. 70s Trend:
High waist shorts and pants, extereme wide legged pants and jeans, platform wedges and my favorite huge floppy sun hats...
Black and white striped hats from Next Direct and NewportNews


5. Platform Wedges:

Women's Dolce Vita for Target® Rope Wedge Sandals - Nude
 Dolce Vita for Target (comes in black and brown as well)




If only I had more time, I have so much to show but I need to get this out so I can get the kids dinner now...
