Ten Things You'll Want This Spring: April Edition

Ten Things You'll Want This Spring: April Edition by lovecrys featuring a silk dress

1. Floral Shorts: Floral prints are going to be very big this spring/summer. Wear them in short form with a pretty top for maximum effect.
2. Pastel Pants: You've probably already seen pastel pants in the displays of every store from Forever21 to Banana Republic. Mint is my personal favorite, although it can be daunting to wear. Pair it with a white top if you're nervous, or go for pastel color blocking and rock it with peach ;)

3. Sheer Black: I'm sure the last thing you thought about when I said Spring was black. But something that's black and sheer can be very spring-like, especially at night. Wear it with a bright bottom.

4. Clear Umbrella: April showers bring May flowers. Clear umbrellas are so cute and they keep the rain off of your head!

5. Jean Shirt: These have been making a comeback over the past year. You can go for the gusto and wear it with a different colored pair of jean pants, or wear with black, white, or colored pants if you're not up for the risk.

6. White Silk Blouse: A staple you should have in your closet already. It goes with everything.

7. Retro Sunnies: I'm a big fan of retro. I'm also a big fan of sunglasses. I have five or six littering my room already. Plus they spice up any look.

8. Yellow Rain Boots: I'll admit, I've been looking for these everywhere. They remind me of the Morton Salt Girl and I've wanted them since I was little. The ones above have the added advantage of a lace-up front and a subtle wedge for a shorty like me :)

9. Color-Blocked Dress: Color blocking is still in! If you have some trouble pairing things, or want something more subtle than two clashing brights, pick a dress with similar but different colors.

10. Studded Jackets: If you've seen my youtube channel, you know that I LOVE studs. If you can't find/can't afford a studded jacket, buy you're own studs and display your inner DIY goddess!


I've been in a style rut. And it's the kind of rut we all get into and probably never notice. 

I love love LOVE class and sophistication when it comes to clothes and outfits.
 I always usually churn out cute outfits that I have fun with, but fashion-wise, this is no longer a challenge for me. And life's all about challenges, right?

Soooo I decided to do something that was the opposite of my usual look and go for more of a grunge-y kind of thing. Success? 

My imaginary album cover

I immediately tripped over rocks after this picture. Haha :)

Hoping I don't fall but still trying to look cool!

So I challenge you. Take pictures of the opposite of your usual look. Put pictures or links on my facebook wall and I'll post them here in a few days :)

I think I went a little crazy with the FroYo toppings. 

That thorn bush behind me literally stabbed me in the back just before this picture.

The weather here has been AMAZING this week. My cousins and I went out and tried one of those newfangled frozen yogurt bars....and it was delicious. I don't know if it was just the bright colors, the different flavors, or all the topping choices I had before me, but I loved the FroYo and I fully intend to eat my weight in frozen yogurt go there again.

Afterwards, because my cousins are kooky and weird, we decided to explore a humongous library. And by explore, I do not mean play hide and seek for a full 30 minutes. We are entirely too old and sophisticated for such frivolous things ;)

P.S. Stay tuned for my next post, in which I channel my inner hipster and pretend I'm on an indie-rock album cover.


Yay Spring Break! This is my last ever spring break (woohoo!) and Mother Nature decided to bestow amazing weather on the east coast just for me! Which means that I can take pictures in outfits like this without having to act like I'm not cold. Seriously, I should get an Oscar for all the acting I've done! I don't understand how the other bloggers do it. 

On to other things: this blog post is so titled because I am actually wearing NO makeup in these pictures (gasp*). There are days I have where I just don't feel like putting on makeup and as long as I don't look like the pubescent version of Freddy Kreuger, it's all good :)

So here I am! Barefaced and au naturale! Enjoy.

Sometimes, I have this inane need to be fancy. I have to be wearing something eye-catching and va-va-voomed (that's probably not a word....oops). But occasionally I like to remember that even simple outfits have their own way of being eye-catching.
