Ok so it has been a while since I wrote but have been very busy!Â Went to Vegas for my birthday with the girlfriends, sold my house and my husband is starting back up at work! WHEWâ€¦
But I did have fun in Vegas â€“ lots of shopping but you know you are getting older when you are out to dinner (or in this case a club) and the majority of women are wearing shirts as dresses â€“ I guess that was the trend. My friend had on a cute black dress/longer shirt with leggings and as the night wore on she said I think I should have left my leggings at home! Itâ€™s funny to see the styles in a different part of the country (and in warmer weather).While itâ€™s not so warm in the Northeast today I am still looking forward to sandals, shorts and skirts for the season.Â Here are some of the latest trends I spotted:
Bright colors â€“ fushia, yellow,etc.Â Â I thought yellow was the â€œitâ€ color last year but am still seeing it out and about. Â There are so many variations of yellow but the bright sunny type yellow is my favorite (not mustard, please) Jcrew has a great selection https://www.jcrew.com. Although I have seen pairing black with yellow I recommend against it. Â I just think it makes you look like a bumble bee â€“ well I think it makes me look like a bumble bee. (actually Oprah had back and yellow on the other day on her show and it looks fabulous) Â The better option is to pair it with white, kakhi or gold.
Thereâ€™s nothing like a floral shirt or skirt to brighten up your wardrobe. https://www.bananarepublic.com – They have some great ones. Floral looks great with white accessories or straw accessories. Â I am still distraught over not buying a straw/wicker handbag from the coach outlet last year as when I went back it was gone! (when it doubt buy it as you can always return it!) Â Â I still think about that bag as I put together my outfits this springâ€¦â€¦..
The last trend is the exotic prints or global. Whether itâ€™s a shirt with a jeweled neckline, beaded bottom, geometric patterns and even paisley prints. This one is hard to pull off.Â Log onto Neiman Marcus for a wide selection. Â https://www.neimanmarcus.com.
