Friend Friday - Spring Trends

Friend Friday
I recently joined the Fashion Beauty Friend Friday group created by Katy over at Modly ChicEvery week Katy puts together a set of questions and on Friday if you want to participate, you answer them on your blog and link back up at Modly Chic.

What are the top 5 Spring trends that you are looking forward to
seeing/sporting this season?

1. Color blocking - This has been all over the runways, magazines, and blogs. Now I just have to try it.
2. Maxi dresses - I'm, what, 3 years late to this party? Welcome to my life. I've been convinced they would look atrocious on me, but I ordered my first one a couple of weeks ago so we'll see how it goes.
3. Neon - I hesitate to say neon, more like 'bright pops of color'. That sounds weird though, but you know what I mean. I bought a bright pink thin belt that I can't wait to wear. I like bright colors in small doses. 
4. Orange - Given my sports team (RTR), I have a lifelong aversion to orange and for the most part, this remains true. You'll find very little of it in my closet. However - I do like the orange nails and lips that have been popping up everywhere. I bought OPI's Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? and I think an orange lip gloss is in my future as well. 
5. Floral - I'm not really looking forward to florals, I just wanted an excuse to use this:

Hey we both used color blocking on our list. I like your list better than mine - orange, neon, florals, maxis. Score.

I'm soooo excited for orange for spring! It's surprisingly flattering and so bright and cheery.

I would have answered boho for all 5 and then Modly Chic might have questioned my sanity.

TGIF. Am I moved yet?

I love your trend 1 and 2! Funny that you used that picture/quote for the floral trend. I guess it is all about trends you see vs. trends you would wear! I can't see myself wearing orange for example, but flowers always go well! It's nothing ground breaking, but I still love them :)

I want to try the maxi dresses. I'm afraid that they're going to fall strangely on me. I'm sure I'll go for it. I bought a fedora and wide leg jeans after all. I'm not looking forward to florals either. I'm not much of a pattern wearer, but when I do, floral is not my go to option.

I love a good maxi dress. Most aren't very flattering, but every once in a while you find one that is....and it cute and amazingly comfortable!

Yvonne said...

Hilarious!! Yeah Maxi Skirts aren't really my thing. One of those trends I never made it to either. I feel the same way about orange! Usually scares me, but I'm giving it a go and color blocking? YES PLEASE!!

Taj Acosta said...

I love a girl with a Devil Wears Prada reference! I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I'm not particularly exited about this spring's trends, but everything is cyclic, thank goodness! I just can't rock bright colors or boho looks!

Torrie said...

You're not the only one who's late to the maxi-dress party.

It's high on my list, though. Which one did you order??

Courtney Erin said...

I'm sort of terrified to really try orange...that said, I really want a pair of skinny orange pants.

Nice post!

Cathy Benavides said...

Words cannot describe how insanely afraid of/in love with maxi dresses I am. I want one soooooo bad, but am afraid of looking like an idiot. However, I have it narrowed down to three and I'm gonna choose one and order it. I can't wait to see yours!!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I bought a neon yellow tank the other day. Let's see how that goes :)

Happy Friday! xoxo

Ashleigh said...

Colorblocking & pops of color - yes yes yes!! Just what I need to wake me from the looong winter.
Don't feel bad, I missed the maxi dress party too!

The Fashion Buzz said...

I love colour block. Actually I think almost everyone has featured it in there list so there is likely be plenty of colourblcoking going in this summer.
