In Floral Fashion

I can't wait for spring to come and these floral jeans will get me in the spring spirit in a major way.  I love them!  Colored jeans and floral print jeans are very trendy this spring.  Colored jeans can be found pretty easily and are often cheap.  On the other hand, floral jeans are a bit harder to find, and the best ones are designer jeans so they come with a steep price tag (the first two pairs of jeans pictured are around $200).  The last pair of jeans below are cheaper choice but they are not my personal favorite.  I like the boldness of the first two jeans and the bottom pair just doesn't pack quite the punch.  They are only about $25 so if you want to get in on this trend without breaking the bank then these are a perfect choice.  You can find the top pair of jeans here, the ones right below here, and the bottom jeans here.

Song of the Day

Florence and the Machine - Shake It Out

I know that their new album came out a while ago but I am just getting around to listening to it.  This song was the lead single I think, and it is amazing.

Nailed It

My roommate got this Butter London nail polish in Wallis for Valentine's Day and I love the color.  The olive green metallic color is perfect for the upcoming Mardi Gras festivities. You can find it here!

The Cold Shoulder

I recently have started liking the trend of cut out shoulders.  When I first saw the look a year or so ago I really hated it.  I thought the look was dated, but in the past year I have come around a bit and decided that this trend could be worth a try.  Above is an awesome shirt that features the cutout trend.  The pattern and cut out shoulders work together to make this a top with some serious bohemian flare, not to mention it is pretty inexpensive.  Below is a silk version of the trend that also incorporates another trend, ombre.

Valentine Ideas

Valentine's Day is coming up and whether you have a special someone or not you can still celebrate.  Above are some pink flowers that I love.  I'm not sure what kind of flowers these are but I know that they were only five dollars and they look amazing and festive.  I am not a fan of roses because I think roses are too overpriced and pale in beauty compared to other flowers. So a Valentines tip is to avoid roses and embrace other flowers that are pink or red and save some money.  Below are two items that will also get you in the mood come February 14th.  First is a Clair Vivier folded leather clutch.  If you remember from my post a couple days ago I am in love with folded clutches and this one is perfect.  It is bright pink with a neon orange zipper.  Second is a pair of 7 for all Mankind pink skinny jeans.  My roommate/friend just bought a pair and they are adorable and perfect for spring.  She found a pair at H&M for only $25 but the ones below are great as well, although a bit more pricey.

Song of the Day

Radio - Lana Del Rey

I know that there is some controversy surrounding Lana, and her performance on Saturday Night Live left a lot to be desired, but I still can't get a song off her new CD out of my head.  So, for your listening pleasure, whether you like her or not, is Radio off her new debut CD.

Black and Nude Beauty

I love black and nude together.  Something about those two colors in one piece looks luxe and expensive, even if it is not.  Above is an awesome faux leather jacket, that is actually now on sale, that has just a hint of black to the other wise nude colored jacket.  The quilting at the shoulder and ribbing at the elbow are extra touches that tae this jacket to the next level.  Below is a sweater that would look perfect with jean cutoff shorts and wedges as a transition piece into spring.

Folded Clutches

I have been seeing pictures of these folded leather clutches on the internet everywhere lately and I love them.  They are perfect because they come in a variety of colors, but what I really love about them is how slouchy and soft they look.  I would recommend getting one of these in real leather. Below are two options, a nice green color (which looks suede in the picture but is supposed to be leather) and a more versatile black color.  You can find the green clutch HERE and the black clutch HERE!
