Spring Trends + Fashion & Beauty | 2018

No comments
It's officially one of my least favorite seasons. My time of the year is over and it's the other people's turn.

That's ok because once Christmas is over, I'm a little bit over winter as well. We've been hit with some weird AF weather lately here in New York, but I have a feeling even though Spring is here, that won't be going away.

I am a little sick of wearing my boots and I'm ready for a pair of ballet flats. I also am over my big winter jackets and just want to wear a denim jacket. So I guess in a way, I'm ready for spring. I also really want an iced coffee and I refuse to drink them in the winter.

I have weird rules.

When spring comes, there are always new trends to try and things to buy and I'm feeling the burn.

Right now, there are so many wearable trends, both in fashion and beauty. I'm kind of obsessed with all of them, at least the ones that I'm going to talk to you about today.



Fashion:

  • Mules: This is a trend that we're recycling from last fall and I'm ready for it now. I already picked up these Gucci dupes from Target and I need the all leather pair ASAP. 
  • Flowers: Florals for Spring, groundbreaking! But really, it is groundbreaking. I don't think I've seen florals for a while, and this season it's all about flowers. This trend is very present in Kate Spade's latest collection for March; there are flowers everywhere! I usually hate flowers but I'm feeling it this year.
  • Satin: Another trend leftover from fall -- satin. We saw satin & velvet all through fall and winter and we're continuing that. I don't have anything satin, but I know I want to try something. Maybe a nice satin shirt will make it's way into my collection this season. 
  • Kitten Heels: I never thought I'd see this trend come back but I guess everything returns at some point. I don't know how I feel about this one, though. I want to like it because I hate wearing heels so maybe a kitten heel would do me some good? I might try it! Stay tuned.
  • White Shoes: This isn't a trend I could pull off but I love how it looks on another people. Katey McFarlan/Hellman wore white booties in a blog post last week and she rocked them HARD. I love this! 


  • Mini Bags: Now we're talking my language. I have a lot of mini bags in my collection but these circle bags are all the rage and I'm loving how people are styling them. Mini bags have been around for a while and I don't think they'll be going anywhere soon.


Beauty:

  • Glitter: Glitter is everywhere and I LOVE IT. I love some glitter in my life and it's bringing back so much nostalgia for me. I think glitter on the eyes or even in your highlight can be done really tastefully.
  • Rose Gold/Gold Highlighters: Is this a new trend? I saw it everywhere on every trends list but I feel like I've been rocking this for years! Well, if you haven't, welcome to the best thing ever. I love rose gold & gold highlighters and I don't think there is much else that I wear. They go with every look and add a bit of piazz to your look.
  • Ultra Violet: Pantone named Ultra Violet the color of the year, so obviously you're going to see it everywhere and anywhere. You can incorporate this with other shades of purple, and use it in your eyeshadow, eyeliner, lips, or even your blush. Get creative with it! It's a wearable color while still being a little fun and different. 


  • Glossy Lips: Glossy lips are BACK! I love my matte lips so much, and I'll still be rocking my Kylie Lip Kits till the day I die, but I'm feeling the glossy lips. I have never been a gloss person but I have found a new formula that I cannot get enough of. I can't tell you what they are YET but I recommend tuning in for my favorites post next week to find out.
