Spring and floral print go together like cereal and milk, peanut butter and jelly, do you get my drift? Floral print dresses can be worn to work, church, dancing, dinner, girls night out, etc., it just all depends on the style of the dress. The dresses I’m showcasing today only have one similarity, and that is they both incorporate flowers. One dress is more for a night out, while the other is more formal and would look amazing if paired with a blazer.

The pink floral print dress features and open back detail while the white is just a plain zipper. Both dresses are available at www.shophergoodybag.com

One of the biggest trends for the spring is the pastel blazer. Pastels can be really difficult to wear for some people. I’ve created four looks to help you mix and match and with one of the seasons hottest pieces.

Look #1 Pastel Blazer with Pastel Denim- it creates a fun look for the spring. You can even pair it with a pastel skater skirt or bodycon.

Look #2 Pastel Blazer with Floral Prints- this is a very flirty and feminine combo. Choose a dress in which the blazer would be the perfect complimentary color.

Look #3 Pastel Blazer with Neutrals- I paired a light pink blazer with a cream dress and paired it with floral print sandals. The softness of the colors creates a romantic feel.

Look #4 Pastel Blazer with Boyfriend Jeans- for this look I went super casual. The darker shade of blue lets the blazer be the focal point as well as the multi-colored ballet flats

Pastel and Denim

Look #5 Pastel Blazer with Denim Shorts- This look is so versatile. It can be dressed up with a heel or wedge or dressed down with a flat sandal. Keep the accessories bright to help bring out the color.

The wait is finally over and The HGB Shop is officially open. As the blog began to progress I started getting all of these ideas on how to expand my brand. It first started with the HGB Styling Services, now I have the HGB Online Boutique and who knows what will come next!

Although this weekend we had a little cold front come through in New York, May will be here in no time. I think that’s when the official spring weather will return. So now is the time to add a few pieces to your wardrobe. I will be adding more pieces to the shop within the upcoming weeks.

So for this cycle you will find fun and funky prints, which are great for the spring and summer. There are crop tops, party dresses, rompers, shorts, and more. So head over to the www.shophergoodybag.com to for more looks!

In January I had the opportunity to take part in an amazing panel discussion with some awesome people (click here for the recap). U by Kotex sponsored the event, and they wanted to break the silence about the misleading information when it comes to a woman’s body. We broke myths, exposed the truth, and vowed to empower others, especially young girls when it comes to learning and discussing about a woman’s body.

Many girls today get their information from their friends, television, the internet or social media. So you can imagine how much information is out there that can confuse a person. I remember growing up watching “The Cosby Show” and the episode that stayed with me was when Rudy got her period. A few of her friends came over and they shared with her every horror story you could think of. One myth that I still remember to this day is “You can’t go to the beach when you’re on your period or you’ll get attacked by sharks.” Let’s just say I didn’t want to go to the beach because I thought I was going to die. I knew that it was just a television show, and I should have gone to my mom or someone else that I trust to ask questions to make sure I wasn’t crazy, but I didn’t. I was too embarrassed and I know that’s how many girls feel now.

I now have a platform where I can help educate many people who are misinformed. Too often we pass up opportunities to help people, even when it is done indirectly. Small change is better than no change and if only one person receives the correct information from me then I believe I did my part.

Recently I was riding in the car and someone was using FaceTime and mentioned they needed panty liners. Instinctively I said “Keep that to yourself,” and they replied “Didn’t you do that Kotex forum? Remember we shouldn’t be embarrassed to share that information.” She was right and a wave of guilt hit me. It was like second nature for me to say keep that to yourself. We have to remove the stigma about getting our period. No one should feel embarrassed about that when it is a part of our nature. It shows that we are healthy women (young and old) with our bodies working properly. We should embrace it, even though PMS and cramps can get the best of us.

Take a look at how we plan to empower others

We have to Bust Myths, Speak the Truth, and Empower others to embrace their bodies and the many changes they will go through.

When I think of spring I think of all the amazing flirty and feminine dresses that I can wear. I love showing off my legs and as soon as the weather is consistently warm, I will be back in my dresses and skirts. Until then I will just dream about adding these pieces to my wardrobe. I also have a floral print shift dress for sale so check that out as well (www.shophergoodybag.com)
