Spring Trends I'm Loving

C U L O T T E S.
women's knee-length trousers, cut with very full legs to resemble a skirt.

When I think about culottes, I am reminded of that time when I used to wear knit guacho pants. We all did. I'm sure I'll look back at culottes and think what was I thinking? just like I look back on my choice of guacho pants. I really can't help that I'm drawn to culottes. The heart just wants what the heart wants.... And sometimes comfort just wins all the races.

With that said, I do think that culottes are definitely waaaaaaaaay more refined than knit guacho pants. Definitely more put together without the cooperate-feel of other woven pants. I love how versatile culottes are.

I love these looks and think so many of them would be so fun to wear on a date night! I'm not sure how Aaron feels about culottes though. He really HATED guachos and thought they were the most unflattering pants ever. Ha! The denim pair are just wide legged cropped pants but I think they have the feel of culottes without being so wide-legged. I think they would be so fun with a cropped tank and birks for an easy summer outfit. One thing you will learn about me throughout the spring and summer is that I HATE SHORTS. Hate them. I have yet to find a pair that I feel comfortable in or that feel good on. Anyway, back to the culottes.... what do you think? Love 'em or hate 'em?

M U L E S.
a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. Mules can be any heel height - from flat to high.

Shoes are my weakness. I think a good pair of shoes can make a drab outfit, fab. So cheesy but so true. I have a wide foot so sometimes sandals are hard for me to find, especially strappy ones. I think thats why I like the mule variety so much. They are a classic style that is super trendy right now and look good with just about anything. And are a GREAT transitioning piece going into spring and summer. They are so fun with any cropped pant, boyfriend jeans, and midi skirts/dresses. I wouldn't wear them with shorts or short skirts, but that's just me. I think some women can totally rock that look.


I recently got this pair of Seychelles at Maude [here]. How fun are they? I'm pretty obsessed with any shoe made by Seychelles. And every pair I've ever owned have always been so comfortable!

They really are an awesome shoe for any outfit! The PERFECT spring/summer/fall shoe. So what do you think? Are you on board with the mule?

What spring trends are you loving? I am really looking forward to finding a great pair of culottes! Hopefully by Easter :)

We had the most gorgeous Sunday, and this week is looking to be so pretty too! I am thinking spring is here to stay. Keeping my fingers crossed, anyway. I absolutely love this time of year. It's my favorite.
