I’m back with another outfit post for you guys! The weather has been pretty nice. I haven’t worn my heavy winter coat in about two weeks and that’s major. So for spring I love incorporating as much color in my looks as possible. During the winter months I tend to wear a lot of black, grey, and other dark colors. So any chance I get to add a little color I’m all over it.

For this look I wore a pair of green skinny jeans, a cream silk blouse, and multicolored pumps. I wanted to bring the other colors out of the pump so I paired them with the green skinny jeans. These pumps are so versatile because of all of the colors and can be worn with just about anything.

We have yet another celeb/brand collaboration for you guys and this time it comes from Cassie and Forever21. With the upcoming release of her new mix tape “RockabyeBaby” Cassie will be doing major promo with Forever 21. According to Grazia Daily the collection is called “Forever LA.”

The Forever LA collection has two parts, the West Side and the East Side. The East Side is inspired by 90s urban Los Angeles style with vintage and alternative style pieces – think Fresh Prince of Bel Air. While the West Side embodies the laidback vibe of LA with abstract prints, vibrant sneakers and crop tops. The campaign is shot in LA (obvs) and Cassie poses in front of a hipster bike in a massive pair of shades and a graffitied tree trunk, then hits the beach in loud geometric prints.

Cassie is the perfect person for this collection. Her style is very “LA.” It is urban and edgy and that embodies one of the main aesthetics of the brand. She actually started incorporating pieces of the collection in her new music video “Numb.”

Forever 21 is a great place to shop for trendy pieces at affordable prices, so I’m sure with making Cassie the face of the spring summer campaign people will flock to get the pieces because they love her style. You’ll see lots of crop tops, ethnic prints, studs and more. Take a look at a few shots from the shoot via Grazia Daily.

The spring weather will be here soon *fingers crossed* so we must be prepared. When it comes to spring, just like fall, it is about layering. With the fall and winter months the fabrics are heavier, the knits are chunkier and you are just stuffed overall. For the spring time you can still layer, but with light-weight pieces. So check out our Spring Essentials that you’ll need to master layering in this finicky weather. All of the items under $100.

I’m here with an outfit post featuring some oldies but goodies. I paired a bold printed skirt with a denim shirt, gold accessories and my new favorite shoes (I have them in brown as well). I am all about shopping your closet and getting the most use out of what you own. So I went in to the archives of my closet to find one of my favorite skirts that I purchased 2-3 years ago. I think a skirt like this is pretty much timeless. It goes with just about anything because of all of the colors and it can be dressed up or dressed down, which is always a plus. Take a closer look at my latest “What I Wore” post.

It’s no surprise that I am loving the black and white trend. I am looking for a good fitting black and white striped blouse now. I already own black leggings with white side panels. A black and white crop top may come in handy too.

With this trend you do not have to stick to stripes. You can rock polka dots, houndstooth, or just the mix and match with black and white pieces. Check out some more options under $50.
