2017 Spring Wishlist

. I love looking for inspiration on Pinterest, so here are some of my favorite trends for the upcoming spring weather.

See the complete Alice + Olivia Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection.:

Embroidered floral prints: I love this trend for the spring weather this season. It’s super feminine and chic for boxy jackets and structured dresses. I also love the prints for jeans too.

Kendall Jenner in basic white t-shirt, leather leggings and slouch heels

Leather pants: I’ve been wearing my leather leggings a lot with chunky sweaters, but I think this will also be a great trend for the spring. It’s edgy to wear out with a loose flowing tank top or a lacy dress.

Pink Pastel Coat:

Pastel coats: Easter egg colors are great for the spring, and I love a good jacket to wear while the weather is still chilly. A long trench is timeless, and a duster coat is great for when the weather gets warmer.

Loving the overall dress thingy or whatever:

Overalls: I love wearing overalls during the spring and summer. For a spring look, I’ll probably wear mine with a striped long sleeve for a fun quirky look.

early spring style. love the denim jacket to top off the outfit:

Jean jackets: I just bought an oversized jean jacket, and it’s definitely a new staple. It pairs well with a sundress and ankle boots, but it also works well with sweatpants and dark jeans.

White Off The Shoulder Crop Top + Distressed Jeans Source:

Over the shoulder tops: Over the shoulder tops are going to be another hot trend this spring. I love how these tops are a statement piece.

Oscars Best Dressed 2017

Emma Stone’s dress was my favorite by far. I love that she went with a classic fit with an intricate design and fringe. Her whole look is very Hollywood Glamour with her refined curls and simple red lip, which is appropriate for her movie “La La Land.”

I love how luxurious this dress was. I love how the classic top was made more whimsical with a feathered skirt with embellishment.

Brie Larson looked amazing in this sculptural look. If this was in another color, it could’ve been a nightmare on the red carpet. But the black color and minimal styling makes for a very chic look.

I love this dress on Hailee Steinfeld. The floral print and chiffon material made for an ethereal feel, which was a nice change for an Oscars look. I also like that she opted for an updo. Some people might not like the dress, but I think she pulled it off well.

Olivia Culpo looked amazing in this fringed dress. Her purple eye makeup make it more modern look overall, and it was a nice little surprise to the Hollywood feel. I love the little black ribbon that ties the look together.

Best Dressed From 2017 SAG Awards

I loved these looks from the SAG awards. I liked a lot of blacks and embellishments on this particular award show.

Emma Stone was a huge winner last night, and I loved her dress. She’s been really embracing her whimsical La La Land film with quirky sort of gowns that are fun. 

Amy Adams looked elegant and simple with this black form fitting gown, but my favorite part of her look is the bold necklace choice she made. 

Michelle Williams looks gorgeous in this simple sequin dress. Gold and silver mixed together is a ballsy choice, but it works really well here with a minimalist fit. 

Emily Blunt wore this vintage looking dress. This could’ve been a disaster with the wrong styling and fit, but her sleek hair and eye makeup makes the look feel modern. 

I love how glamorous this look feels, and it still looks laid back. The red lip and tousled waves add to the relaxed vibe of her look.

This gold dress screams opulence from its fit to the pattern.

This was totally a bold choice with its color, but I personally liked how different it was in color choice. 

Sofia killed it again, but instead of a form fitting dress, she opted for this feminine fit and flare dress with strappy shoes and a red lip to pop. 

The Bachelor Blog: Stiletto Power

Raven: I really liked Raven’s date with Nick. It was fun, easygoing and just a nice normal date. But besides that, I love Raven’s personality. She has a sweet southern charm, but she’s also pretty headstrong and confident, which I’m sure is what attracted Nick to her. Her past relationship is super dark, and I love the way she told it without any sort of sugar coating on it. Raven really stood out this episode, and she rose to the top for me in this episode.

Vanessa: Vanessa is such an awesome human being. Her little scrapbook was a cute little reminder of how old school she seems in comparison to the other women. She and Nick have a very strong connection, so we’ll see what happens next.

Corinne: Corinne is crazy, but she wasn’t the craziest person in this episode. To me, Taylor came off as super entitled and demeaning toward Corinne. I mean, don’t get me wrong, Corinne is delusional in some of her thoughts, but at least she owns it and doesn’t bother the other women. She’s not being rude to any of the women, so I’m not sure why some of them feel the need to judge her and question her intentions when they should be focusing on Nick.

Rachel: Rachel is going far! I think she’s just having a slow start. We keep seeing small little scenes between her and Nick, but nobody seems to see her as a legitimate threat. I think she’s going to make it somewhat far, but until we see the one on one date, we will have to wait to see if there is a real connection.

Danielle M: How funny was Danielle when she read the date card? Love her. She just seems so chill.

Other Random Thoughts: 

  • Danielle L. didn’t make my top 5 because I honestly didn’t think there was that much of a real connection between the two of them. She just kept repeating the same thing over and over again. Maybe it was just nerves, but I don’t think there’s much to their relationship.
  • The ex in the coffee shop was just about as real as the girl’s excitement of going to Milwaukee.
  • Seriously, it didn’t add anything to the show really.
  • Bella is killing it. She reminds me of the little sister from 500 Days of Summer.
  • Cristen left! I loved her, and I hope she makes it on BIP.
  • Nick handled Vanessa’s questioning pretty terribly. He really couldn’t defend himself, so he just reassured her. I guess in the moment, it worked out fine, but it did not read well on television.
  • I saw Leah, Olivia and Corrine hanging out together on social media. I love when the villains ban together.

 

Bachelor Blog: Planned Dancing

Here are my top 5 after this episode.

Vanessa: I love Vanessa. She was my early pick after the first episode, but she really exceeded my expectations. The date seemed like so much fun until she started feeling sick. Nick was so sweet and protective over her, which was a nice side to see to him. I really liked their dinner date as well because they had a very meaningful conversation followed by Nick actually crying! Then we end with a cliffhanger of her calling Nick out. We’ll see what happens next week.

Rachel: Rachel is another one of my favorites from this episode. She just seems very put together and had a great attitude at the group date. This was her first date outside of the house, and she seemed very grateful.

Danielle L: Danielle had a great showing this week, but I only see a physical connection between the two. I honestly don’t remember much from their conversation, but she might be a dark horse.

Raven: I still think Raven is going to go very far this season. She doesn’t seem like Nick’s type, but she seems like she’s got a connection with Nick still.

Corinne: Corinne is so ridiculous, it almost seems unreal. She is such a cringe worthy character to have on the show. It does worry me that females might think this is the sort of behavior they need to get the guy.  I love that Vanessa said she’s not judging Corinne because at the end of the day, they should be solely judging Nick, the object of their affection, not Corinne.

Other Random Thoughts:

  • Alexis is my spirit animal. She’s hilarious.
  • The reaction to Liz was pretty underwhelming. Nobody seemed to care.
  • The entire season seems like it’s geared toward questioning Nick’s intentions.
  • Sending Dominique home was smart on Nick’s part. She was just comparing herself to all the other girls.
  • Josephine is such a riot. She’s quirky and a lock for BIP.

The Bachelor Blog: Just Corrine

What a mess of an episode. It was a little frustrating that it’s only episode two, and it’s already the Corinne show. It took away from the other girls, and while I usually love the drama, it was overkill. The Liz drama was way more interesting, especially with Christen knowing everything.

Raven: I really liked Raven’s one on one time with Nick. It felt genuine, and I liked how easygoing their conversation was about their past relationships. She definitely might be a dark horse.

Vanessa and Rachel: Vanessa and Rachel were people that had zero screen time, but I thought were going to make it far. Vanessa calling out Nick next week will be amazing, and I think Nick will respect her for asking that in the first place. After all, his actions with Corinne were questionable.

Corrine: Corrine was so exhausting after this episode. She was such a trainwreck with all her insecurities bleeding everywhere in two hours. I honestly felt bad for her that she felt like she had to intervene so many times to talk to Nick. I’ll defend Nick a little bit in this episode because I do think he was encouraged by the producers to give her the rose. If it were Ben, they’d encourage him to give it to whoever he wants because Ben is known for being the “perfect guy.” But Nick has a little more edge to him, and they probably know it’s going to ruffle feathers.

Danielle: Danielle is a sweetheart. You heard all the other girls being happy for Danielle for getting the first date. She’s a little soft-spoken for Nick, but I won’t rule her out for that simple fact. She’s a strong woman for sure with her backstory, and I can see her making it pretty far.

Other Random Thoughts:

  • Cristen was amazing in this episode, and I thought she handled herself fairly well. Telling Nick about Liz was probably not the best, but it wasn’t forced by any means. It seemed pretty natural in conversation, and her read on the whole situation was on point. I’d be friends with her in real life.
  • Liz and Nick handled the situation pretty terribly. Nick was so cold and distant toward her, and she expected him to act normal. Her breakup speech to him was definitely relatable. I mean, every girl wants a guy to fight for her. In this case, there was just a lot of miscommunication between the two of them, and that was the end of it. Boy, it was awkward television, but it was entertaining too. I think Liz was being a little too hard on Nick, and I think Nick just didn’t know how to handle the whole situation.
  • Taylor isn’t in my top 5 because I really didn’t think Nick was all that into her, but that was just based on body language.
  • The slap was so overplayed in the promos, and I knew it’d be too good to be true.
