SPRING TRENDs: PASTELS & STRIPES
Today I’m talking about two of my favorite trends on the blog today –pastels and stripes! Pastels are the trend of the season- think anything 1980s country club (the Pretty in Pink dance scene serves as my inspiration for the season, puffed sleeves included). For summer, I think my favorite trend will be stripes! They are such a classic print for the season and I feel like that preppy Americana style (a la Jackie Kennedy in Hyannis Port) will feel just right.
SHOP PASTELS & STRIPES
I was so thrilled when I noticed that both of these trends were perfectly represented in a vintage dress I already owned. I purchased it years ago at a hole-in-the-wall vintage store on the Drag in West Campus (sigh of nostalgia for my college years in Austin) and fell in love with it for the low low price of $21. (Does anyone else weirdly remember exactly what they paid for for everything in their closet? I always remember!) I very rarely get rid of clothing- usually everything comes into style at some point so I like to keep a couple plastic bins for storage and go through them each season, when I’ll decide to either throw something away or decide to pull it out for the season.
Do you keep items in your closet season after season? What trends are you most excited about for spring and summer?
