No, it is not too early to talk spring trends! If you are like me, you are trying to be happy wearing your winter clothes – with the occasional purchase of something to help you make it through until spring!

I started doing “research” to see what is on the radar for spring. Did I ever tell you that I tracked every single clothing purchase I made for several years? It was enlightening! At the end of the year I would see what I wore that most, look for patterns in my “bad” purchases, and learn from my mistakes. In doing so, I found that I bought the most in March and September for the change of seasons into spring and fall. I became a much better shopper when I looked at my yearly clothing purchases.

I cannot guarantee this will be my last spring fashion post!

Now, before I ever buy anything for the next season, I look at what I have. It is funny how you can quickly forget what is in your closet.

Here are the trends I saw and my thoughts:

Suit jackets – oversized shoulders – nope, not for me. I do not need to oversize my shoulders. I would like a knit suit jacket, maybe? I think I could go for something with some stretch. Let me know if you see anything like this.

Black Face Masks – nope. And, isn’t it sad that this is considered a spring trend? I have invested way more money in masks than I care to admit. I have my favorites and they are my Pomchies brand. I love these so much. I am curious about the Kitsch brand, though. I wish someone out there had a Pomchie and a Kitsch. Why do those both sound like diseases? Lol!

Head Scarfs – I love this idea. I do not have many small silk scarves but I am trying to do some different hair styles and I could try this one. I did steal a white bandana from my son. It is very new and stiff and has not been washed yet.

Easter Egg Pastels – Yes! I love color!

Yellow Handbags– Yes! Color, again! I actually have one in mind. This is a designer dupe. I need to find the source but I think it was $41. I don’t know why the photo is bad, but you get the idea.

Pops of Blue – Cornflower Blue and Lighter Blue Colors – Yes!

Tapestry Coats – nope! I appreciate them on other people but I am not really interested in this.

White Knee High Boots – I can see a shorter bootie or a cowboy vibe in white.

Yellow with Camel – I think I would like this! I have this old sweater. I love yellow.

Handbags with Fringe – I love fringe and I have these black and camel crossbody purses that I was thinking were out of style. Too much?

Florals – Head to Toe Flowers Included – I like a floral but I am not sure about head to toe. I hope these florals are still in style.

Holes in Odd Places to show some skin – Didn’t we do this? The cold shoulder tops of a few years ago? How odd of a place are we talking? A shirt with a hole that just shows your elbow? Is that odd enough? What about a hole that shows your right bottom rib?

Feathers – Yes! Give me all the feathers! Well, I like a feather print and some feather accesories. I guess it would depend.

White – Love white! Get you a Clorox pen, though.

Wide Leg Pants – Do my Matilda Janes count? I think you have to be careful about your footwear with a wide leg! I like this, though. The wide leg jeans look so cute on lots of people!

Sheer Layers – No, thank you! I guess I would have to see this but it scares me.

What is on my wish list:

red clogs – I know, I know. I had a red sandal obsession this summer.

yellow shoes – not sure what type yet or if I need these!

rain clogs – Hunters!

more Savanna Jane tops

Birkenstocks – not sure what type/color

the yellow purse from above or something similar

something cornflower blue

What trends are you trying?

  1. I love the purses with fringe (so pretty!) and rain clogs (so cute!) I’m not trendy at all. The clothes with random holes…so funny! I have one light weight open shoulder sweater…I like it but it’s an odd feeling.

    1. Thanks! They were from a consignment store (one of them) and on super sale. I used them for Bourbon and Beyond and just anytime I was shopping. I had a few cold shoulders but got rid of them. It is an odd feeling! I am trendy with accessories and a few things. I’m really trying to only do age appropriate, body type appropriate, and ones that feel like me. I do like seeing what’s coming out in stores. That’s fun to me. I need to do a mall
      walk sometime!

  2. I was in the mall last week, and there was a lot of YELLOW! Not a fan. In fact, I am not sure I could jump on any of these trends, except head scarves…I have been wearing those for a few years anyway. It is fun to dream about spring, though. 🙂

    1. Give me all the yellow! Haha! You look so cute in a head scarf and I actually thought of you when I was thinking about the trend!

  3. Oh, spring… Can’t wait!! But it’s not even February yet, and spring definitely doesn’t start until April up here… I look forward to colors coming back into fashion. I love pastels! I saw a picture with beige pants, mint green sweater and crispy white sneakers… Lovely!
    Of course you can have those fringe bags! Cool! Flowers, yes, but I sometimes feel to girly in flowers…

    1. Me either! I know – we will have some warm days but March and April can be cold. I love color, too. I am hoping the crisp white sneakers stay in style for a long time!
      Thank you for letting me keep my fringe!

  4. As a blue eyed blonde, give me all things blue!!! My favorite color on myself. And also as a blue eyed blonde, no to yellow! A lot of the things on your list are giving me ’90’s vibes–been there, done that! Have you seen the chunky sole shoes that are on trend for spring/summer? Straight out of the ’90’s. Although, I could definitely still rock a ditsy floral dress and my Doc’s!!! LOL!!

    1. I bet it looks great on you. I love yellow and I think blondes look great in yellow! I guess it depends on skin tone. My friend said the mall is full of yellow so I plan to scout it out this weekend. Oh yeah, lots of 90s. I don’t think I can do the chunky sole. I am not a Docs person either. I like the floral dress! I guess never say never, right? Haha!
