10 MUST HAVES FOR SPRING

This weekend I have escaped to Chicago with my mom and sister for a much anticipated appointment at the J. Crew Bridal shop! But, I'm so happy to have my stylish and beautiful friend Kara here from Cheeky Chic to show you 10 great spring fashion trends! If you haven't been by her blog, its the perfect dose of daily inspiration!


I am so excited and blessed to be here today! I have been so inspired by luxe + lillies from Day 1 and I cannot wait to share some of my creative visions with you all.  One of my greatest passions in life has been capturing alluring fashion trends and designs, and turning them into polished, yet personalized styles.  Today, I am delighted to share with you, The Top 10 Things Every Cheeky Chic Lady Should Have in Her Closet This Spring...

1. Ankle Bow'd Heels: I am lusting over these dramatic, over-embellished, obnoxious bow heels!  Tiny bows on the toes no longer do it for me, I am loving everything about these chic & flirty heels adorned with a massive ankle bow...


2. Silk Shorts: Another trend I am loving for Spring are silk, high-waisted shorts.  They look amazing dressed up or dressed down, wedges or flats,    paired with a cotton tee or chiffon blouse.. everything about these shorts are amazing.  I especially am drawn towards the cinched drawstring waist but equally adore the pleats...


3. Ultimate Cheeky Chic Dress: This is what I like to call my, 'Meet the Parents' dress.  It is a staple item in every chic girl's wardrobe!  The dress is classy & sophisticated while keeping a little to the imagination as well.  Keep the neckline high, hemline low, & attention on your waist & you will not go wrong with this dress...

 

4. Attention to Detail Top: Lace has been a fun & flirty trend for spring & the best part about lace is that you can play around with it without it looking tacky.  There is so much detail going on in these tanks & I am loving the woven elegance with a touch of lace throughout the top as well...

Scalloped Shorts: I have been patiently awaiting for a great new style from the cotton short department & it looks like I have to wait no longer! These scalloped shorts are a perfect way to toy with a casual look & make it bold...

 

Tortoise Watch: I am a watch fanatic! I have watches in every shape, color, size, price.. you name it! But I am constantly drawn to the refined & polished look of tortoise.  Whether dark or light colored tortoise, you cannot go wrong for spring...
7. Relaxed-Boyfriend Tee:  The comfort of an informal, loose t-shirt will never lose it's love in my book.  Since it is one of my favorite tops because it is so versatile, I like to play around with the style a bit.  Try stripes, a deeper neckline, shorter sleeves, or even an a-line cut.  Either way, this tee is perfect for running errands or lounging on the weekends...


8. Trilby Hat:  My go-to spring & summer hat has always been the fedora & I am loving the modern twist on the trilby hat!  Typically known to be more of a male's style hat, the contemporary style has shifted a bit with a touch of femininity & mod flair...

9. Statement Jacket: These jackets are to die for! A light-weight statement jacket will be imperative for your closet this spring!  Dress any outfit up or change your day look to night by simply adding a statement jacket...

10. Ash Hobo:  Personally, I am a more structured handbag lover, but I am drooling over these ash colored hobo bags.  The color is simple & easy to pair with unlimited looks!  The hobo style is casual yet modern & I am loving the simplicity of carefree neutral toned bag...
