Sometimes I Like To Wear Clothes.

March 30, 2012


Erin Schrader

Today is going to be one of those “I used this post on another person’s blog and now I am using it on my blog” kinda days.
I tell you what. I have felt busy lately.
Apparently working 40 hours a week, renovating an office, blogging, trying to have a life, and sleeping a solid 7-8 hours a night make me feel a little overwhelmed.
Not that I am complaining.
But if the opportunity arises that I can use something I’ve already written, I am all for it.

So, I apologize if you saw this post already on justlove.ly, but you’re gonna have to deal with it.

Today I am here to talk to you fashionistas about the latest clothing trends.
This is actually quite funny because I do not consider myself a trendy person.
And now that I think about it,  I prefer not to wear any clothes at all given the choice.
That was a joke people.
Or was it?
Anyhow, back to what I was saying—Everything I know about fashion comes from blogs, Pinterest, and from my friend who owns her own boutique.
God bless Blogs, Pinterest, and clothing boutique owning friends. Amen? Amen.

Without further ado, I present to you my 7 favorite looks for Spring and Summer.
1.  Bold Jewelry on Soft Colors.
Sometimes ya just gotta pop. Right now my favorite combo of this is yellow with turquoise. Love love and love.


2.  Color blocking.
I’m sure you’ve all seen this by now. At first I had mixed emotions. Now I’m kinda diggin’ it. Especially when it comes to bright pinks and oranges.

3. Colored Pants.
Especially yellow colored pants 😉 How can your legs not feel happy when they are adorned in these all day? Exactly. Pair those colored pants with bright, bold colors. It’s Spring ladies, don’t be afraid to go all out in the color department. I am loving yellows with corals at the present moment. Add in a nice pop of blue and you can’t go wrong.

4.  White Tees paired with fun accesories.
Lets face it ladies. Sometimes the only thing we want to throw on is a tee shirt. I love me some tees. Unfortunately, plain tees alone can be a little boring. Wanna jazz it up? Throw on some chunky jewelry, bright heels, a pair of boyfriend jeans, and bam. You are set for a night out on the town.

5. Green & Gold.
I’m not sure what it is about these two colors together but I’m currently hooked. You can make this color combo look classy, or you can give it a playful look. I think they call this multifunctional? Your right. I should stop acting like I know what I am talking about.

6. Blazers with shorts.
Blazers are such a winter piece, however…you can quickly carry this look into Spring and Summer by just topping a cute pair of shorts with it. Especially a bright fun colored blazer. Unfortunately, I am without one at the present moment. But this gives you an idea of what it could look like. Yes? No?

7. Nautical
Ahhhh, timeless, timeless, timeless. I love me some nautical anything. Reds, Blues, Whites, I am hooked. You’d think I live in America or something. Oh right, I do.

And there you have it friends.

Which look are you diggin’ the most?
Do tell.

Have a great weekend youngins.

PS. Totally just posted this from my new office. Booooo yah. Pictures to come soon. Finishing touches are almost complete. Almost.
PPS. Are you totally annoyed yet of me talking about this new office of mine? Good. Me either.
