If there are two trends to stay on top of this spring, I would have to say they are hats and floral print. At least if you dress somewhat bohemian like I do. I love floral for spring (actually all year round)… but the print definitely makes a huge comeback around the spring time. I love mixing the print with wide brim hats, which are also huge this spring. Combining the two trends gives you a really effortless, relaxed bohemian vibe.
I was part of Old Navy‘s #SayHi campaign this spring (and also will be this summer, shhhh)! I found the perfect floral maxi dress on their site. It’s a gorgeous black floral print that’s reminiscent of something I would have thrifted back in my high school days (that’s a compliment, BTW). I paired the dress with my Chinese Laundry western mules that I seriously cannot get enough of. I added this Brixton wide brim hat that I snagged at Crossroads. I love when I try to go there to sell clothes to make some extra cash and end up buying the whole store… Not.
The finishing touch on this look was the jewelry. I usually would choose some dainty, gold jewelry like these pieces from AUrate New York. I love this brand- all of their jewelry is handmade in New York City from ethically sourced materials. Aurate also partnered with Philadelphia schools to donate a book to economically underprivileged kids with every piece sold! But, for this specific look, I chose to go with a bolder statement to play up the festival vibe of this look. The necklace I’m wearing is from Sugarfix by Baublebar at Target, I’m obsessed with the pieces in this line- you should check it out if you haven’t!
Anyway, I would definitely try out these two trends if you are looking to freshen up your spring style a bit! To give you an update on what I am up to… I am still currently reveling in the amazing-ness that was Coachella and planning my next trip. I’ve got a case of wanderlust for sure! In the meantime, you can find me working, soaking up the sun, and enjoying the warmer temps in the South Bay and LA 🙂
