Coffee Chat | Friday Fashion Finds!!


Good Morning!
So it’s an implementation day, actually it’s a goals focus day for the
Rediscover Me Challenge and before we dive into Relationships Week I am going
to do another wildcard day like I did yesterday but this one’s gonna be a
little bit more lighthearted we’re going to talk about some spring trends I’ve
been out shopping a lot lately, I haven’t bought much though but I did pick up a
few things last weekend I was able to hit most of the major stores to see
what’s coming in for spring and they’re a little bit behind on getting new
arrivals but I had to take Ava last night to do some shopping – we’re trying
to get some stuff for spring break which is coming up in like two weeks I think!
Crazy! So I was able to get out to some more stores and yeah we went to kind of
some more junior focused stores but I found that the trends were pretty much
the same at the more adult stores so anyway I want to go over some of those
today with you guys and I did a post on Wednesday and I think I scared everybody
because I was talking about a lot of the new silhouettes that are out there and
it seems like I knew things were shifting and changing I’ve been talking
about this for a couple months but I didn’t know that it was gonna happen so
fast because the things that I am seeing for spring are largely these newer
proportions like the wider leg pants and paper bag waists and high-waisted jeans
and boxier style tops. So I’m seeing a lot of that in stores and I talked about
some different ways to pair it up and how basically the proportions are
flip-flops of we used to do like the looser flowy tunic style tops with skinny jeans
which by the way is still is totally in style I’m still seeing
that too so there’s definitely both of the proportions going on at the same
time but we’re now starting to see the more fitted tops with the looser pants
and the high waisted pants with the boxy tops so there’s definitely a shift going
on and it’s happening quickly!! So I talked about how to pair up the new
silhouettes and I think I scared everybody that does the Style Challenge
I just want to reassure you that the Spring Challenge I am going to show you
some of the newer trends and how to pair them up but in the same picture I’m also
showing you how to pair it up with the more traditional classic stuff that
we’ve been styling for the past ten to twelve years so don’t worry we’re not
making a huge shift adair if you want to try the new trends you are certainly
more than welcome and we’ll be playing around with those a little bit but if
not you are still good to go! So anyway so yeah I talked about the new
silhouettes the boxy tops, the wide legged pants, and the higher waisted jeans
you’re gonna see those everywhere when you go out shopping but the old
silhouettes are still around they’re still tons of skinny jeans and stores
honestly there are more skinny jeans than anything else that I saw this year
the main difference you’re gonna see with skinny jeans is a lot of them have
the higher waist now instead of the lower waist and I think that
high-waisted jeans and pants are probably one of the more wearable trends
for spring they’re comfortable I love my high waist jeans I didn’t think that was
going to come around on them but they are definitely working for me and I’ve
heard from a lot of you too that you said I didn’t think these were gonna
work for my body type but I ended up loving them so give them a chance! Okay
so as far as patterns you know definitely lots of florals lots of
stripes those I feel like are here every single spring without fail they’re not
really a trend they’re just kind of a constant and I’ve seen a lot of
one-piece outfits too I saw lots of kind of jumpsuits with wider legs and some of
them are cropped not like full-length ones
those were in florals and stripes too I saw lots of two-piece outfits like
matching tops and wide leg pants actually Ava bought one of those outfits
last night and those are really cute! She got like a black and white striped one
and it was a little tank style top that was cropped but the pants are higher
waist so they come all the way up and then they had loose flowy or pants I saw
lots of leopard print not just for you know my demographic but I’m seeing it in
the junior section and tons of stores like dresses and sweatshirts and tops
and it’s everywhere leopard print is huge for spring this year which makes me
so happy leopard print, stripes I that’s all I
need right I saw in the shoe area lots of white shoes not just sneakers which I
totally expected but also sandals and espadrilles and those thicker soles on
sandals seem to be really popular this year definitely espadrille style wedges
and sandals are huge I saw bright colors and pastels but I’m
just gonna go out there and say in this area at least I’m seeing more brights
this year than I am pastels so there’s still a lot of that dusty rose and blush
out there which I personally still love and there are lots of neutrals too but
I’m starting to see some more brights come in for spring which is exciting
also nautical inspired pieces like the Navy and white stripes and I saw some
cute little like sailor pants with the little buttons on them I feel like
that’s another constant in spring we tend to see lots of that nautical
inspired stuff this time of the year as far as denim anything seriously anything
goes this year I saw you know all kinds of washes – dark, light, you name it
everything in between color colors like peach and pink and purple and olive
everything in between we saw I saw high-waisted jeans skinny jeans flares
crops distressed jeans lots of jeans with details like side stripes and
button flies and frayed hands are still sticking around too so if you bought a
car those in the past few years they’re absolutely sticking around I’m doing a
whole blog post on Wednesday I’m gonna outline all of the denim trends for
Spring 2019 but seriously it’s like an anything-goes kind of year when it comes
to jeans so you cannot go wrong even though again we’re seeing lots of new
different proportions and silhouettes and all that stuff all the other styles
are there two straight legs I mean even like the classic styles that we’ve seen
around forever so you can’t go wrong there are mom jeans and tons of mom jeans
mom shorts, paper bag waists were everywhere shorts, skirts, jeans. pants you
name it! I saw tons of paper bag waists and lots of and I’m gonna say late 80s
early 90s inspired pieces when I was shopping with
Abel last night especially for her demographic there’s like everything for
teenagers right now is stuff that I wore like my senior year in high school it’s
it’s insane Craig and I were laughing at some of the pieces I guess that makes us
older like oh my gosh we totally wore this I think the only difference now is
that a lot of the tops are the same but they’re more cropped or more fitted than
they were when we wore them the first time around so so anyway yeah I’m gonna
do a blog post this Wednesday outlining all the denim trends that you guys might
want to take off it’s going to add a few new pairs of jeans to your closet then
these are the trends to focus on for Spring 2019 and the ones I think you
might have a little bit of staying power will see but also I wanted to let you
know that if you’re interested in the spring challenge it’s gonna open on
March 8th and it’s going to have 31 days and mix-and-match outfits
we’re gonna do we’re gonna style the outfits two times which is fun the first
round we tend to style them a little more traditionally like the sample
outfit photos that I give you and in the second round we take some liberties and
have some fun with it so if you want someone telling you exactly
what’s where and exactly what to buy the spring then I’m your girl
I’m more than happy to do all that work for you I love doing research I love
boiling it down and I love giving advice so this is like the perfect perfect job
for me so that’s gonna open on March 8th and before then our annual memberships
we’re gonna close next Friday we only have a week left in annual memberships
so if you want to get a discount on the challenge for the full year this is your
last chance 7 days left to do that and we have three options this year you can
either do seasonal challenges only which will be spring summer fall winter and
you’re gonna get a seasonal trends shopping list with your classic basics
if you’ve already done a closet staples or you have most of the closet staples
we reuse a lot of those pieces for our Basics in the seasonal challenge and
then I add in these fun little trends that you can try out if you want to
they’re optional you can also swap in some other things but we give you some
substitutions substitutions for that so that annual membership is just for
seasonal or you can do a combo membership is seasonal and workwear if
