What I've been Wearing

Spring is in full bloom! And so is my spring trend outfits. I have been loving a lot of the spring trends this year. I have been wearing floral prints, bright colors, colored shorts, cowboy boots, and some chiffon (my new love!). Here are a few looks I put together. More too come later too!
Name tag hehe

 Dress- Ragstock
Cardigan- H&M
Belt- Forever21 (came with a skirt)
Tights- Target
Boots- Ragstock/Vintage
There is just something about cowboy boots that make me think of nice spring weather! I love this pair with all the fringe on it, they add a little fun and a twist to my outfit. Floral prints are always big for spring. I like this dress a lot because the darker tones make it a year round dress. It is also light and flowy, making it great to just throw on or make fashionable.

Top- forever21
Tank- Ragstock
Shorts- Ragstock
Bright colored pants and shorts are huge this spring. I wasn't to into it until I saw this mint shorts. I love the color! My crop top, also a big trend lately, used to not need a tank under it until I washed it and it shrunk. Boo. I am really into my coral nail polish too. It wasn't even a dull dark winter, but bright colors just put me in a great mood
What are your favorite spring trends to rock?

Spring Time Outfit

Spring and Fall are my favorite fashion times! They are both just warm and cool enough to wear light bold styles. I finally got to pull out my delightful dresses. Spring also inspires me to wear more accessories and nicer shoes. No snow for water stains, and not too hot for my feet! Here is the first spring fashion outfit I rocked out.

Dress: A boutique in CO
Shoes: Hot Topic
Belt: Target
Earrings: Urban Outfitters 

This outfit was so fun and cute! It will definitely make a comeback! What is your favorite spring outfit?

What I have been Wearing

It is getting more and more like spring!! I can't wait to be able to show a little leg or not always have a cardigan or sweatshirt on. But since it is still a little chilly here are some outfits I have put together to keep me warm but give me a spring feel.

Shirt- Charlotte Russe
Jeans- Old Navy
 A shirt similar to this was on Pretty Little Liars and my post Wish List Wednesday. I loved that shirt and then I happened to just stumble upon it while shopping! So happy! I also wore it with my pleather leggins and it looked very chic. This top is definitely a new favorite.

Scarf- Charlotte Russ
Cardigan- H&M
T-shirt- Target
Tank- Victoria's secret
Leggins- Target
This has become my lazy casual winter outfit. It keeps me covered and adds color but is still comfortable and easy to throw on. I can mix and match my Ts and tanks too. 
What comfortable fashions do you wear during the colder months?

A little of Thrift, a little of That

It has been getting nicer out lately so I thought I would spend some of my free time visiting a few of the antique stores in town. We have two pretty big ones actually in town and a few more in relatively close towns. My aunt and I sometimes make a day of it and go visit them. Even if we don't buy anything it is still so neat to see things we remember from out childhood and neat antiques. Here are a few little things I found!

Salt and Pepper

I can never go to an antique store and not find at least one adorable interesting thing. I am starting to love all the kinds of salt and pepper shakers I have been seeing. They are something I would like to collect once I have more space for them. The jars of buttons also really spark my interest. They would be great for crafts and when they are all in the jar they are a super cute house decoration. Antiques have always had a place in my heart and half the fun is going to search for them!
