It’s time to ditch the autumnal layers, burnt oranges, and scarves, and make way for the biggest trends of the season. Spring is all about vitality and life so it makes sense that the trends on the catwalk are bold and colorful too. What’s become clear is that a hint of skin is very in. This trend is set to go through spring and into the summer months too, so it’s well worth investing in. Here’s how to nail the hint of skin spring look, and feel confident enough to bare all…

J.O.A. Stripe Off Shoulder Blouse

Off The Shoulder

Off the shoulder tops are huge this season, but it’s only one side of the classic design that’s being given the cold shoulder. Tops which drop on one side are easy to wear and flattering for most shapes. The traditional off the shoulder top exposed both shoulders and could make some of us look a little broad. Luckily for us, it’s about one dropped shoulder this season. This look works well with a blue and white striped fabric, oversized sunglasses and chinos or jeans, think riviera style!

Sports

The sports luxe look was huge last year and transformed humble gym gear. This spring’s all about reinventing athleisure. Alexander Wang, Versace, and Dolce & Gabbana all showcased sporty looks which flashed a little flesh. Loose short shorts or tight slightly cropped leggings are a good way to nail this look. Pair leggings with an oversized parka just like Versace. If you’re not looking forward to flashing your legs after a long cold winter, that’s understandable. Make sure you exfoliate your entire body once a week and try applying tinted moisturizer for a sun kissed look on your legs. This will make you feel confident enough to rock this look.

Utilitarianism

This trend mixes the best of both worlds. Boxy and boyish shapes are combined with deep v-neck cuts to combine androgynous with femininity. This trend works best with a khaki fabric and oversized pieces. Scarves are the go-to accessory for winter and it can be daunting to do away with them. Unfortunately wearing scarves can irritate our skin, which won’t leave it ready for plunging necklines! Use skincare products which contain retinol. Retinol is widely used as an alternative to anti wrinkle injections. It is amazing at reducing the appearance of fine lines, making skin appear fuller, and also rejuvenated. It’s a must for anyone looking to trial this trend. Your skin really will be your best accessory so make sure face to neck, you’re glowing.

BCBGMAXAZRIA Joela Cutout Tulle Dress

Sheer Cut-Out Dresses

This has been a huge trend on the red carpet as stars embrace the cut-out sheer dress look. Sheer dresses are placed over oversized briefs/shorts and bodies. This works best when the materials are darker as it creates a romantic, gothic look.

Happy Friday! Our CFO is retiring next week so I’ll be busy all afternoon helping to set up his Margaritaville sendoff. Tomorrow, Sarah and I are shooting (Yay! Outfit posts coming!) then heading to Chaplin’s. Sunday, Kendall and I are going to church where we would like to be married and then to Baltimore we go for Simple Plan! I love going to concerts with my (now) fiance! PLUS we have some great news- we settled on a reception venue so things are really getting rolling for our wedding next year!

This video from Upworthy actually gave me chills- totally made me rethink the phrase “special needs.”

I am so proud of Kaylin Yost! She was a year below my sister in elementary school and her brother Alex was in my class. She’s overcome great obstacles to be a fantastic pro golfer!

Speaking of incredible female athletes, Allure‘s video of Alicia Napoleon takes a hard look at beauty standards for women and women in sports.

I love lavender + lemonade. I also have anxiety. This lavender lemonade sounds like it might be perfect for me!

I’m tardy to the party sharing this because I didn’t do a TGIF last week but how stunning are Dani + Jen in the new line from Blake Porter Studio?

Have a great weekend!

If you’re a travel aficionado, there’s every chance that you’ve started the new year with a list of place you hope to visit in the coming months. If you don’t get endless opportunities to travel, it’s important that you make the most of every trip. Sometimes, the activities and adventures you enjoy can make the vacation. If you’re looking for inspiration, here are some incredible experiences that will take your break to the next level.

Shallow Water Interaction

Wildlife encounters

If you’re an animal lover who also loves to explore, wildlife encounters are the ultimate treat. We can all see exotic species in zoos and wildlife parks, but there’s nothing better than spotting creatures in their natural habitat. There are all kinds of amazing safari options and animal encounters on offer. Swim with dolphins in Mexico or sea turtles in Barbados. Feed the kangaroos or cuddle a koala in Australia. Watch the elephants plodding across the dusty ground in South Africa or the whales basking in New Zealand. If you do want to get up close and personal with cuddly creatures, it’s always advisable to do some research before you book tours or trips. Read reviews from people who have personal experience, and look for recognized agencies. Take a look at https://www.roughguides.com/gallery/animal-and-wildlife-trips/ for more tips and tricks.

Aerial tours

The world is full of breathtaking sights. Often, it’s best to enjoy as many perspectives as possible. The view you get from the ground may be completely different to the one a trip in a helicopter or hot air balloon affords. From above, you can appreciate the scale of national parks or city streets and enjoy stunning panoramas.

PARADISE LAGOON BEACH

Aquatic sports

If you’re off to the beach, there’s nothing more exciting than a day on the water. The beauty of water sports is that there’s something for everyone, and you can try a range of activities as a beginner. Most larger beach resorts offer an array of options, including waterskiing, jet skiing, wind sailing, and paragliding. You may also want to try surfing, especially if you’re in Australia, California or South Africa.

Outdoor pursuits

If you’re an adrenaline junkie or you love the great outdoors, don’t miss the opportunity to try some unique pursuits. Hike the glaciers if you visit Iceland or New Zealand. Go mountain biking in Austria, France or Scotland. Take to the powdery slopes in Switzerland and Italy. There are so many activities you can try, and in most cases, your excursion will treat to amazing views and give you a sense of achievement.

Have you made it your mission to travel more in 2017? If so, why not try and be more adventurous and sample some of the fantastic trips, activities, and excursions on offer? There are so many different things you can do while on vacation. Step outside your comfort zone, challenge yourself, and get out and explore the world. Every trip you take should leave you incredible memories you’ll cherish forever.
