My Style: Trendy yet Classic, Not too flashy, sexy or over-the-top. I like to be noticed, but for the right reasons.
By this time, you must be wondering, “when is this younger sister going to stop talking about herself?” Well the answer is, not yet. This week’s topic, as picked by Amy, is Fashion. Although I am no fashion expert, I have enjoyed shopping and staying on trend most of my life. In my younger years I spent much of my time at the malls and stores searching for new outfits, looking for great deals and practicing retail therapy. However, as I get older and the responsibilities increase, I find myself not making as much time for shopping. When I make time to go, it is usually for a specific occasion or my bi-annual shop for the new season. And my favorite fashion season, SPRING, is upon us.
Of course I love this shopping season the most because I can wear these clothes nearly year-round living in Florida. But for you readers who live in a seasonal climate, this should be your favorite too. Let’s shed those chilly, gray, depressing layers of winter and brighten up our lives with the colors of Spring! Here are a few of my favorite Spring trends and how to translate them from the runway to the street.SPRING 2013
Bright Colors: This is a trend that is continuing and is always fun for Spring. I love a bright dress for an evening out or a colorful pair of skinny pants/jeans for a day of errands.
