No-one can deny, ruffles are a huge trend for the spring 2017 season. We saw them on the runways, and then they took the streets by storm. Of course the ruffle trend did not just start now, it started a few seasons ago, and this season is has exploded beyond belief!

It seems as if everywhere I turn this spring season I see ruffles! It is almost like they are chasing me around! Well, I love ruffles for spring, and I am happy they are everywhere! There is something carefree and fun about ruffles. They are playful and light; making any outfit fabulous and fun at the same time. Love!

I was so thrilled to find this pale pink blouse for under $30. Not only does it offer a carefree silhouette, it has ruffles! Oh the fun of it! My daughters love it too, they think it is so much fun. It is really comfortable with my loose fitting boyfriend jeans. This has turned into my go-to casual look for spring when I want to feel comfortable yet pulled together.

What do you think of the ruffle trend for spring? Are you wearing ruffles for spring, if so, how do you like to wear them?

Spring is here! This means I am starting to think about vacations; both spring break and summer. It would be so nice to find a beach somewhere and sleep on it for a whole week! My kids schedules are wearing me out, I need a huge nap!

This maxi dress from OhConcept is perfect for my current mood. It has a vacation vibe, yet can easily be worn here in the San Francisco Bay Area at home. I wore this dress the other day to have lunch with my kids in downtown Saratoga, at the library, and to run errands. It was really comfortable, and made my day seem a little bit lighter since I felt like I was dressed for a beach getaway! Love that!

This dress by OhConcept is made from a lightweight jersey fabric and has a fun, open back. There is also a tie at the waist which adds a nice silhouette to the dress, as well as a fun little tassel on the side. Love it!

I cannot wait to plan a beach getaway and wear this dress non-stop while on vacation. It is the perfect vacation outfit idea for spring break or a summer getaway! This dress is also fabulous to wear right now, and well into the summer months, right here at home. It will be fun to wear casually with sandals or espadrilles, or pair with heels for a dressier look. Love this dress!

You can find this beautiful maxi dress by OhConcept online here, and you can find the entire OhConcept collection online at OhConcept.com. You will love their collection, they have so many fashionable, casual options which are perfect to wear right now! Love!

Green and blue for spring

Wearing: ivory tassel earrings / YSL lipstick / Banana Republic dress / Kendra Scott ring / Chloe Drew / Gucci Swan nail polish / Aquazurra shoes

One of the big color trends for the spring 2017 season is to wear green and blue together. I love how the two colors look with each other. Since green, blue, purple, and pink are my favorite colors, wearing any combination of them makes me happy!

I wore this outfit over the weekend to attend a fundraiser with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. Although this was perfect for the green-themed occasion, it is a dress I know I will find myself reaching for over and over again throughout spring; and this summer too! After all, “Greenery” is the color of the year! Therefore, all things green are fabulous! Love!

What do you think of green and blue together for the spring 2017 season? Is it a color trend you might find yourself wearing too?
