Happy May everyone!
I hope that you are having a great week so far. For an assignment for my Parsons x Teen Vogue fashion class, I had to take a shot of window display at a retail store that I thought was pretty interesting.
I went to my local mall, also the mall I currently work at and looked around at numerous displays. The one shown below at Francesca’s caught my eye because it epitomizes spring.
. The store had beautiful potted plants along the base of the mannequins possibly representing flowers blossoming in the springtime. The colors were varying shades of pinks, blues, and whites.
My favorite outfit displayed was the pink choker top with the blue shorts. In the background you can also see that throughout some of the store the visual merchandising team kept up with the floral and pastel colors and potted plants theme displayed in the window.
I think that this is a great example of a creative and informative window display. Every once in a while I think that you should go to a place you never been or a place you don’t frequent often and just take in your surroundings.
A lot of creative statues, buildings, parks, and people are right in your hometown or neighborhood. Try to meet some of those creative people and visit some of those beautiful places, because you will never know what will inspire you.
Enjoy the rest of your week lovelies, you will be hearing from me again soon! ❤
6 days ago was the official first day of summer! So exciting!
I am more of a spring girl, but I do love bright, beautiful summer days as well. With summer here, that means extra hot days.
As the days get hotter, the clothes get shorter….appropriately of course!
Today, I paired a mint and floral crop top with high-waist, lightwashed jean shorts. I love this top because the colors are very bold and bright.
My shorts are actually my first pair of high-waisted items I brought. I love that I can dress the shorts up and down depending on what top I pair with it.
To finish off my look I wore a pair of Steve Madden black ballet flats. ❤
Don’t melt in this summer heat and enjoy your summer everyone!
The weather is getting warmer here in Maryland and actually staying warm! I am so excited that I can walk outside without layers.
Spring is definitely in the air! So here’s a list of essential items you need for this lovely spring weather ^-^
Sundresses are perfect for warmer weather because they are usually made from lightweight fabric and are loose fitting. These dresses are feminine, flirty and come in a variety of styles and patterns. Colorful, floral prints are perfect patterns for the spring because you will match the beautiful flowers that are starting to blossom. Sundresses can be worn with flip flops for a more casual look or pair the dress with heels or wedges for a classier look.
There are a numerous options to choose from when you are trying to find the perfect spring sandal. There are gladiator sandals, which go all the way to your knee and you lace them up. There’s also ankle strap sandals which usually have sometime of buckle around the ankle to keep the sandal on. If you like traditional sandals better, you can always wear the classic open thong sandals which are pretty much more sophisticated flip flops. Perfect sandal colors for the spring are pastel colors such as light pink, yellow, and blue or different shades of tan/brown.
Since the weather is becoming beautiful again, we can all expect a lot of sun. Sunglasses not only protect your eyes from harmful sun rays, but they also make you look super stylish. These glasses are worn more as a fashion trends nowadays. There are so many styles and shapes too choose from such as round, cat eye, oval, and butterfly shaped. Sunglasses are perfect for days at the beach, but can also be worn on sunny days when you are just taking a stroll in a park.
Shorts are perfect for the girls who don’t really like dresses or skirts, but still want to be cool on a warm spring day. Whether it’s Bermuda shorts, gym shorts, cut-off shorts, or culotte shorts, all of them work perfectly for the spring. Shorts also come in a variety of colors and patterns such as denim, plaid, khaki and even floral. You can pair shorts with a tank top, a loose-fitting blouse, a crop top, or even a bandeau top. Add sandals to that look and you will have lovely and fashion-forward spring outfit.
The best hat styles for spring are oversized floppy hats, colorful fedoras, and straw hats. These hats are perfect for spring because they can block out the sun, are lightweight, and add a pop of color and style to any outfit. You can pair these hats with shorts and a tank top or even a sundress. If you really want to step outside of the box and try something new, try wearing a cute, patterned baseball cap. Add the cap to a white top, cut off shorts, and Converses to create a chic, but edgier look.
I hope you feel more prepared for spring now ❤
