I always blog about fitness but lately I have felt like blogging about fashion. Living in San Diego I see so many people with individual styles unlike the cookie-cutter Abercrombie & Fitch look that the East Coast has embraced so permanently. (not knocking Abercrombie…I worked there as a teen) Southern California gives us the freedom to experiment with different looks and be whatever we are feeling for the day.
My Winter look consisted of mostly black or grey skinny jeans, military looking boots or sky-high stilettos and a black leather jacket with a McQueen skull scarf. I don’t want to stray from this look completely, but I am looking forward to adding some bright colors to my wardrobe.
While this spring I’m not going to even consider ditching my skinny jeans, I am going to embrace the return of the flare! Spring is all about floral and flare so I decided to pick up a pair of Frankie B Punkster Flares. I have always loved Frankie B as it is one of the few brands of denim that fit my figure perfectly. I picked these up at one of my Favorite Del Mar boutiques for $198. I plan on pairing them with a pair of Tory Burch Espadrille Wedges or Clogs (that I bought for fall but never wore…oops). My other Spring obsession is white denim.

To top it off, I’m loving the animal print and floral shirt trend. I also love the look of plain, solid color shirts like the tri-blends from American Apparell or the inexpensive v-neck T shirts from Victorias Secret pink. Both long and short tees are in for Spring/Summer, and I’m definitely going to sculpt my 6-pack abs to perfection to sport a cropped tee.

My new favorite swimwear line is by B.Swim. I ordered a suit from this line that is colorful, punky, and glam at the same time. Check out their website…fabulous bikinis! P.S. I typically buy anything that this model, Rachel Bernstein, models. She always makes it look so good.

For shoes when I am not wearing my favoite Nike’s of the moment, you’ll catch my in a pair of Chuck Taylor All-Stars. I bought an awesome black studded tongue pair of Chucks last fall and have decided to get a white pair for Spring/Summer. For the evening I opt for sky-high platform pumps. I’m not a huge flip flop fan…

Of course my favorite handbag of the moment is my Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Berkeley bag, but I’m definitely going to look into making a new Damier Azur purchase this Spring. LV is classic and goes with literally everything. I don’t carry a handbag when I go out so for an everyday workaholic like me, I like a handbag that is practical, not too heavy, and durable.

There are so many new trends for Spring that I love and somehow I managed to narrow it down to the four that come to me the quickest. What are your favorite new items for Spring? Colors? Brands? Be sure to leave a comment below!
