Favorite Spring Fashions

Spring is here so we want to showcase some of our favorite Spring must-haves for this season.

Floral dresses are one of our favorite Spring staples. Dresses are not only fun and flirty for those warm spring days, but are cute for date nights as well. Dress up with a perfect wedge heel or dress down with a flat for the workplace.

Bright colors are the trend for this season and we love skinny colored jeans. Match with a cute top and a pair of heels for a work outfit or don with vans and a tshirt for a coffee date.

Striped dresses are just as cute as floral dresses, and with a cute bow accent to top it off, you'll look great  for a date or a girl's night on the town. 

We LOVE blazers. You can never have enough of them. They are perfect for a day at the office or to top off a dress for those cooler nights. Bright or basic, blazers look great in every color.

Denim jeans are perfect for Spring and Summer, whether donned with a bikini at the beach, or just a nice top for a night at the bar. The brighter- the better!

As previously mentioned, wedges are a staple for Spring and Summer. They are great to pair with dresses, skirts, jeans or shorts. Of everything mentioned, we'd definitely pick wedges as our favorite Spring accessory!

What is YOUR favorite Spring look?!??

From florals to stripes and brights, these dresses from Zara, JCrew, Rachel Zoe, Shop Bob and Bebe are perfect for any style of wedding.

Spring Wedding Attire

Spring Wedding Attire

Spring is here and Summer is in the not so distant future, which means it is wedding season!  So what do you WEAR to a wedding? Well, that all depends on the style of the wedding. Don't worry, we've got you covered for all!

The latest trends for Spring include bright, pastel colors, bold patterns, and unique fabrics. You can incorporate these styles into your wedding attire by shopping at your favorite stores and having fun with your look!

Whether you want a floral print, design or just a simple little black dress, Lauren Conrad, Forever 21, LuLus and LA Posh Style have a great deal to chose from! Check out my favorites below.

Things to remember...

1. Let the bride wear white. DO NOT even think about creams or off-whites. It is HER day. 
2.Stay away from red. You don't want to steal the attention away from the bride by donning a bright, bold color.
3. Don’t wear black.  Black is a negative color (ie: funerals) and the wait staff and event planner will be wearing black. Leave them to that. 
4. Know the wedding color. Don't get mistaken for part of the bridal party by wearing the same color as the wedding.

DO wear the following: Belts. Stripes. Multicolor. Floral. 








Stripes and patterns. Stripes and patterns will make you stand out in pictures and will get you plenty of compliments, but will not take away so much from the bride

Floral. Much like stripes, flowers will help you to stand out, but not so much that you take away the attention of the bride. Fun and flirty, florals are never a miss. 

Belts. Belts are very in this season, whether it be an actual leather belt or a make-shift belt made out of ribbon or another piece of fabric. 

Bold. Get creative with your color choice. Spring is all about bold, bright colors. 

Overall, have FUN with your outfit! There are many choices out there when it comes to color, style and drama, so don’t be afraid to mix it up!

Supernatural thriller? I don't know if that's the category I'd put "MAMA" under. Certainly it had its freaky moments but it was more of a psychological film that made you think and pulled at your heart strings. 

The previews did not do this movie justice. WIth just a camera following around a girl hiding in the corners of a hallway chanting "mama", you think it's just another horror film that you can add to the list of many. But this is not the case. "MAMA" is an entirely different type of scary movie that has a decent backstory that actually makes some sort of sense (as much as these films can) .

The film starts off in front of a house with a car radio blaring the weather and a door left open with no one in it. Then a distraught husband is seen fleeing from the house with his two adorable children, telling them "mama doesn't feel well. We have to go!" 

Five years later, after spending those years looking for them, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's (Game of Thrones) character Lucas (their uncle) finds them in an abandoned cabin, disheveled, living off cherries, taken care of by a entity they refer to as 'mama.' But as in every scary movie, 'mama' follows them to their new house, causing distress to Lucas and his rocker girlfriend Annabel (Jessica Chastain). 

I spent the entire time watching the movie wondering WHAT 'mama's motivate was to take care of these two girls and why she protected them so much. Thankfully this question was answered towards the end of the movie, but like most scary movies, the answer to what happened to the girls' mother, was not. 

But once the answers are revealed and you think that all is resolved, the story lingers for another 20 minutes, as if the writers struggled with whether to kill off its main characters or keep them alive. 

As far as acting, Jessica Chastain owns this movie. The unreconizable "Zero Dark Thirty" actress takes on a whole new role in this horror film but it's not the supernatural "mama" whom takes over her pail complection, but a rockstar with tattoos up and down her arm and a short, black wig. With more serious roles such as in "The Help", one wouldn't think this would be Chastain's ideal role, but she played it very well.  

Along side Chastain's acting, the revealing of 'mama' helped to set the film apart from its scary movie counterparts. Most scary movies decide not to reveal the supernatural 'thing' until the end, and some, not at all. But 10 minutes in and the audience got to see what 'mama' might look like. As the film went on, more and more of her was revealed until eventually her entire self. 

From moths showing up throughout the house to a gooey substance showing up on walls and hair running across hardwood floors, Mama seems to take on a life of her own, keeping the audience engaged into what could this mysterious creature actually be. 

Also making the film unique was the backstory. Many scary films don't bother to reveal much of a plot, and some, are just repeats. "MAMA" had an interesting and different story that had not been told before; one that kept the audience on it's toes, wondering what would happen next.

For those wanting more from a scary movie, this is a thriller that will having you playing mystery alongside it's characters.
