Grab One New Spring Thing
|It’s been a long, cold recession and a long cold winter. We’re ready for a treat. Our criteria was a trend friendly spring fashion update for under $200!|
The Denim Jacket
It never really left us. But it’s BACK (in a big way) for spring. It’s hard to improve on perfection. But the denim jacket is the ‘must have’ item now and it’s gotten some refreshing updates, like this ¾ sleeve from J. Jill. ($89) NOTE: In general, avoid denim head to toe. Who needs to look like a rodeo queen, unless you are one? A denim jacket is one item you don’t need to spend a lot of money on, and it mixes with all those enormously expensive (or not) items you already own or (wish you did).
|Otrera Scarf $198|
Big Bling Rings 5 inch platforms stilettos: Yikes. Booty baring skirts: Nope. Chain mail dresses: you must be kidding? BIG BLING RINGS: Now that’s something we can grab hold of. Think of them as little conversation pieces, and go for the biggest most eye catching one you can find.
Citrus With Everything
Lemons and oranges are juicing up spring in almost every category. Squeeze some into your wardrobe. When you’re wearing these colors, it’s hard to feel anything but upbeat. Audra’a Garden Ring: $25.
|J. Crew Cardigan $89.50||Kate Spade Shoes $198|
Throw in a Wedge
Wedge heels are the perfect antidote to towering stilettos and sky high platforms. But there’s a trick to the wedge: the narrower the bottom of the heel area, the less stable the shoe.
|Kork-Ease Lilana Wedge $159||Kenneth Jay Lane $115|
|Onyz Dome Ring $50||GB Wedge $79|
The mind is a chronic chatterbox. Our compulsive inner monologues can be like endless loops of stuck records, playing the same thoughts over and over.
