Currently Coveting: Embroidered Detail

There is something about the warmer weather that makes me gravitate towards festive patterns and fabrics.  I have always had a soft spot for embroidered garments, and there is no better time to wear them during the spring/summer season.  Blouses, skirts, and dresses all etched with detailed designs make me smile.  Often times when you think of embroidery, it conjures up visions of your grandmother’s furniture.  However, recently designers have taken a more modern approach and incorporated this art form into their collections in a youthful way.  A lot of times the embroidery is created on loose fitting garments.  While I rarely wear boho inspired clothing, there is something about these flowy decorated styles that look lovely.  Most of the pieces that I found had floral designs. I also loved the flamingo shoes below.  There are a lot of fun ways to wear this trend.  For one, embroidery on a white shirt or blouse really elevates the look.  Secondly, I love to carry embroidered bags.  It’s a fun way to bring color and texture to your outfit.  I will definitely be giving this trend a try this season, but first I needed to round up my favorites to decide how I’ll be wearing it.  Which one of these do you want to add to your spring/summer wardrobe?

Color Crush: Pastels

Welcome to spring and the wonderful world of pastels.  Now, we’re in the season where pops of buttercup, petal pink, and powdery blue are the perfect antidote to the dark and dreary colors of winter.  It is time to put away the moody winter tones and replace them with lighter options.  I know that wearing pastels for spring doesn’t sound original.  But in fact, blush is everywhere right now.  The great thing about pastels is that they are more of a classic staple and less of a fleeting trend.  I just love wearing pretty and soft pastels.  They are a sophisticated neutral that is also feminine and sweet.  Pastels look great when paired with another pastel.  For instance, wear blush with lavender or powder blue with mint. Another option is to stick with the same color but in a darker variation for a monochrome look.  My favorite is to wear them with white.  This combination is a foolproof approach to updating an on-trend all-white look.  To make your style edgier, try mixing them with metallic or with a leather moto jacket for some texture.  I am a big fan of pastels for spring and I highly suggest you try them out!
