Currently Craving: Loud and Proud Combos

70’s inspired style


Spring may feel like a tiny dot on the horizon of your life right now, but it is just around the corner my loves! Before we know it our faux fur will be pushed to the back of the closet and we will be dining al fresco daily. Hallelujah!

Which, obviously, has had me wondering what trends I am feeling for Spring. In addition to the high-low hem, I am most certainly craving animal prints, tie-dye, and super bright color blocking. With these trends on the brain, Ashley at Original Octane in Dallas and I created some fun new looks for Spring.

There are infinite possibilities on the color wheel that is spring and personally I look forward to breaking all sorts of rules.

As the month comes to a close, remember that the next eleven months leave us with a world of possibilities. Get ready to put behind you any drudgery from the past year and those cold winter months and move into the bright, bold new season of the year and of your life.

Here’s to an inspired Spring. Cheers!
