If there is ONE color that’s hot for summer ’16, it’s actually no color at all. You can’t go wrong with all white, all the time. In fact, just wear white with white and some more white.

So toss out those white tees you wore last summer because you know they look a little beat and start anew. There is nothing crisper and fresher than white…even when it comes to your shoes and accessories. Just stay off the grass and avoid muddy puddles at all costs. Oh and white is not recommended if you are near babies and toddlers.

The Bomber jacket is the transition jacket that is literally the bomb. This is obvious considering they have been on trend for a few seasons and are still as hot as ever! I did a post on them back in February called An Early Spring? Bombers Away! Well I still have not bought one so I thought I better get on it and guess what? They are selling out like hotcakes. So if you have not bought your bomber jacket for these spring cool days and evenings hop to it!
Nothing says spring more than butterflies. While I’m not as wild about them as Mariah Carey, I have noticed butterflies are this year’s flower. They are everywhere in fashion! From shoes, to bags, to dresses, butterflies are free to fly.
Here are just a handful ways to add some colorful butterfly wings to your life.
Spring shopping is in the air! Right now there are new fashion trends, colors, shapes and looks you might be dying to add to your spring and summer wardrobe.
