Top 5 Spring Fashion Trends

Happy Friday everyone! This post is the final segment of the spring collaboration series with Merisa of Monogrammed Magnolias. Today’s post is about the fashion trends I’m looking forward to wearing this spring. I did a little online search to see what’s the latest and greatest trends from the fashion runways for the spring season. To be honest, there wasn’t much of these trends that I could actually see myself wearing(if you’re curious, here’s a sampling of what’s “in” this season according to the fashion world-yellow, military, sashes, large print floral,70s, and these weird wide-legged capri looking pants that I forgot the name of) . So I’m going to keep it real and stick with some basic, classic trends that I always look forward to wearing in the spring.

As I compiled these pictures, I could tell the theme was dainty-ness and pastels 🙂 That pretty much sums up the styles I like for spring haha!

1. Lace

Gorgeous lace

Ahh lace-who doesn’t love lace?? It’s just so cute and can give you an “I’m a classy lady” kind of vibe. And how gorgeous is this dress? *swoon*

2. Floral

Botanical Occasion Dress. Floral prints make any event more delightful, so don this sleeveless shirt dress by Tulle Clothing and enjoy the party!  #modcloth

Florals-the most obvious fashion choice for spring and summer. I just love that there are so many different prints out there to choose from, and anything from dresses to skirts, shirts, pants, even shoes!

3. Black and White

Spring/Summer 2015 #Fashion Trends

Black and white-such a basic combo that is appropriate and classic all year round.

4. Circle Skirt

*sigh* I just love how cute these types of skirts look! Must have!

5. Pastels

Lastly, pastels. Such a mainstay for Spring and it’s super easy to incorporate into your outfits outside of clothing, such as jewelry, nail polish, or makeup.

That concludes my top 5 spring fashion trends! What fashion trends are you looking forward to sporting this spring? Or do you not pay too much attention to fashion trends?

Top 5 Spring Beauty Trends

Hello beauties! Today, Merisa of Monogrammed Magnolias and I are sharing our Top 5 Beauty Trends for the Spring. This was hard to do because looking through the Spring Fashion Show runway pictures there were so many beautiful looks!

1. Flowy Hair

THIS is what we call glamour. The screen siren hair at Jenny Packham was created using Moroccanoil Root Boost and a 1" tong for curls, brushed through for 1950s-style bouncy waves. The deep side parting kept it current.

I love this wavy hair do-somehow it looks messy and put together at the same time. Definitely a bombshell kind of hairstyle.

2. Pastel EyeshadowPastel was the palette at the Kabuki show where eyelids were washed with a purple haze and the hair loaded with pastel extensions.

I love the light purple eyeshadow, pale colors like this scream spring to me!

3. High Bun

Maybelline's 60s makeup – graphic white eyeliner and top-to-bottom lashes – and fat top knots? There's nothing not to love about the look at Lepore.

I’m really digging the high bun she’s rocking (I have yet to master the high bun, mine always get all sad and droopy LOL). Also, those doll-like lashes are gorgeous!

4. Bright LipsFinally, some hot lips! The makeup trend at Tanya Taylor was courtesy of NARS Playa Dorado Velvet Lip Liner and NARS Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil. We're shopping them now.

I love this vibrant orange lipstick color. Oranges and corals are a staple for the springtime.

5. Bright EyelinerPeter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, set a modern trend for delicate expressions of colour next Spring. The "Pastel Eyes" were created using laser-cut patches of satin, in a similar ilk to Fendi's demonstration of leather liner. We love this trend! Stick on material eyeliner as you would falsies with eyelash glue and keep the rest of your makeup natural.

Love the pastel shade eyeliner! Time to use some springy colors on my upper lashline other than black!

Those are my top 5 Spring Beauty Trends. Do you keep track of makeup trends? Are there any you are looking forward to trying during the Spring?

Thanks for reading dolls! 🙂 Check out Merisa’s top 5 beauty trends here.

Top 5 Spring Nail Polishes

Hi everyone, Happy Friday! Today’s post is my top 5 nail polishes for spring. This is the second installment of the spring series I’m doing with Merisa of Monogrammed Magnolias during April.

For spring I’m really looking forward to wearing pale pastel shades-I know, pretty typical. But I really like these kinds of shades! You’ll see these are mostly the kinds of shades I ended up picking for my top 5 with one exception. You’ll also see how big a fan I am of Sinful Colors haha. They are only $1.99 at Walgreens and they often go on sale for 99 cents. I love their wide shade range and they are constantly coming out with new collections. The one annoying thing is that a lot of the shades they come out with are limited edition, so the colors come and go. If the shades I’ve picked are LE, my apologies! It’s hard to tell what they have made permanent or not in their collection.

1) Thumb: Sinful Colors 1114 Neptune This is the only non-pastel cream shade I picked. It is a light navy blue shade with fine golden green sparkles in it. The shimmers don’t translate that well on my nails, so that’s unfortunate. But, it’s still unique to my collection and for some reason makes me think of spring. Maybe it’s the blue and green that makes me think of rain and grass? Haha I don’t know!

2) Index FingerSinful Colors 1196 Sail la Vie A periwinkle cream shade.

3) Middle FingerSinful Colors 1184 Tempest A warm pastel purple shade

4) Ring FingerSinful Colors 1443 Mint Tropics A warm light green shade (also seen here). It is a slightly minty shade-it reminds me of the color of a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake haha!

5) PinkySinful Colors 1200 Skylark A pale peach cream shade. It reminds me of the color of a creamsicle ice cream 🙂 This one is a bit on the thick/goopy shade.

All of these shades go opaque with two coats, and I have no major issues with any of them.

Those are my picks for spring nail polishes. Remember to go check out Merisa’s picks here.

What nail polishes are you looking forward to wearing this spring?

Top 5 Spring Lipsticks

Hi ya’ll! Today I’m sharing with you my picks for spring lipsticks. I’m doing this in collaboration with the lovely Merisa of Monogrammed Magnolias. Go check out her picks as well! 🙂 We will be doing a Spring series for the month of April, so tune in each Friday for a new post!

So I’ll start off and say that I cheated a bit (sorry Merisa!). I started picking my favorite lipsticks for spring and they ended up being all MAC lipsticks (which I guess isn’t surprising because I’m slightly obsessed with them). I had to show some love to my drugstore lipsticks as well, so I have a top 5 from MAC and a top 5 from the drugstore.

Top 5 MAC Lipsticks for Spring

Pink Nouveau (Satin) A bright medium pink with a satin finish.

Asian Flower (Sheen Supreme) A purply pink shade with a lot of shine.

Ravishing (Cremesheen) A warm peach shade.

Craving (Amplified) A mauve-y berry shade, very creamy.

Flat Out Fabulous (Retro Matte) I don’t know how to describe this one-it’s kind of a dark purply pink. Maybe magenta or fuschia? Haha sorry for the bad description! This lipstick is very matte and drags across your lips when you apply it, but I still love it despite that. It’s such a fun color.

  Top 5 Drugstore Lipsticks for Spring

Rimmel Kate 06 This is a bright coral color. It is very opaque and creamy, and gives off a sheen.

Milani Fruit Punch This is a pinky coral color. It;s lighter and pinker compared to Kate 06 by Rimmel. It is also very creamy, opaque, and gives a little bit of shine.

Maybelline Matte lipstick Lust for Blush A very wearable cool toned pink with a matte finish.

Rimmel Provocalips I’ll Call You A medium neutral pink shade. It looks warmer in the tube then it does when it’s on my lips.

NYX soft matte lip cream Prague A purply berry shade with a matte finish.

Thanks for reading! What are your picks for Spring lipsticks?
