Spring Style Trends, Part 2: Gingham Get-ups

Linnea White

From off-the-shoulder tops and wide leg pants, to gingham get-ups and slide sandals, we're talking about Spring Style Trends on the blog, showcasing how you can rock the latest trends AND shop secondhand at the same time.

Gingham is back this Spring in a big way, and when this made in Korea gingham shirtdress came in to the shop, I knew it needed to be featured. Slides (and mules) are also trending this season, and these white slide sandals added a bit of chill to this otherwise buttoned up look.

And what's better than a pair of statement sunnies for finishing a head-to-toe look? These Twiggy-inspired sunnies are so over-the-top, they actually work. And looking like a bug is also super big this season, just FYI/ICYMI, so why the heck not?

I call this my Iris Apfel-inspired look, or my fly-on-the-wall look. Either way, it's effortlessly cool, and insanely comfy - a combo I can fully support. Especially for the weekend, and this outfit is owning all the weekend vibes, right down to the people watching and window lounging.

How are you rocking gingham this Spring, darling?

P.S. As I mentioned before, this is my new hair cut, and it's just so good. Who else feels like a fresh chop in the Springtime is the BEST?!

Spring Style Trends: Off-the-Shoulder Tops & Wide Leg Jeans

Linnea White

Spring weekends are made for frolicking, and this outfit is rocking some of the biggest Spring style trends. From the off the shoulder craze to the wide leg culotte length jeans phenom, this outfit is ready to hit the Spring scene with a burst of zeal. Bring it on, Spring! Wide leg jeans are making my LIFE right now. That culotte length is easily pulled of, when styled right for your body type. I could have sported this pair with some heels to give me a little boost in height, but I wanted to show how to dress down the look for weekend adventures. And these Nike kicks were the perfect way to do just that.

I'm also jumping for joy over this off-the-shoulder top, because dang. Showing off a little shoulder, ladies, it's the new sexy. And it is also so darn cute! Keep your neck bare for a clean look, and let the top (and your skin/shoulders/collarbone) do the talking. A pair of statement earrings is the perfect way to accent this trending neckline, especially in a bright hue for the warm season.

How would you rock these Spring style trends, darling?
