Get the Look: Overalls

Overalls are one of my favorite street style trends for spring!
… But they can be tricky to pull off.  I suggest opting for a darker wash if you’re feeling a little unsure about the trend.  Pairing overalls with a classic stripe is an easy way to incorporate them into your wardrobe.  I chose to offset the classic stripes with pops of neon and a trendy stacked heel.  River Island has an amazing selection of these fun jeweled statement clutches!
 Check out my overalls board on Pinterest for more inspiration!

Trend Alert: Ear Cuffs

A Toast To Trends: Ear Cuffs
Ear cuffs never cease to amaze me every time I see them!  They come in all shapes and sizes, from giant and elaborate, to small and dainty.  When they first came out I didn’t think that they were quite my style; however, I have recently realized how truly obsessed I am with them.  
Ear cuffs aren’t just for edgy looks anymore!  Pairing them with stripes and classic pieces is an easy way to “trend-up” any outfit so it looks a little more fresh.  If you’re unsure about wearing them, start with a small pair like the ones I have selected from Shopbop. Check out the photos I’ve found from around the web for easy ways you can incorporate ear cuffs into your wardrobe, no matter what your style type!
