spring trends 2015 with neiman marcus

I had the pleasure of attending two great Neiman Marcus Fort Worth Spring Trend Events this year!  The first was a fabulous runway show, hosted by the even more fabulous blogger Katey McFarlan, which I unfortunately arrived late to.  But I did get to meet Katey and let her know what an inspiration she is to me!  She is a total sweetheart and was looking amazing as always!  I loved her print and color mixing!!  Be sure to check out her blog and follow her on instagram!

  The second trend event was a TCU Alumni Event that I attend each spring and fall.  As always, Neiman Marcus Fort Worth put on great events with yummy bites and sips and lots of amazing fashion.

So today I'm sharing pics from the runway show and from around the store to highlight spring's biggest trends!  We're seeing tons of white... all white outfits as well as black and white... transparent/sheer clothing layered, pops of color and floral, and lots of bohemian chic print mixing with fringe accents!

hello yellow!

Hooray sunshine!!  We're having another sunny day in Fort Worth and it's making me super happy!!  I'm finally feeling like spring is, well, springing!  So let's talk about a bright, super spring-like color, that actually I haven't been that fond of in the past, but am loving right now... HELLO YELLOW!

Yellow is SO HOT right now.  We're seeing it everywhere and not just pastel, but bright, attention-grabbing, saturated yellow.  I happen to be wearing a gorgeous yellow dress in about a week when I'm a bridesmaid for a dear friend!  Go girl, you're so on trend!!  I can't wait to see how she has incorporated this color into her wedding!

I've rounded up a few yellow favorites below!  Shop them by clicking the small thumbnails at the bottom!
Happy almost-Friday!!
Hello Yellow

Yellow may seem like a tricky color to wear, and yeah, it can be.  I personally have a little bit of a hard time because my skin tone is definitely more on the pale side.  My advice is go towards the opposite saturation as your skin tone.  So if you have paler skin, go with a bolder, more saturated yellow, like canary yellow, or mustard.  If you have a darker skin tone, feel free to play more with the pastels.  That's not to say you can't wear pastels with lighter skin and vice versa, you just have to play around and try on different things and see what works for YOU. 

If you're still nervous about wearing head-to-toe yellow, opt for a pop in your handbag or shoes, or even just a belt.  When you wear yellow, you're sure to brighten your day as well as those around you!  You'll also be seen!!  Did you know that yellow gets the most attention from people?  Think about it... warning signs, school buses, taxis... there's a reason they're all bright yellow!  So if you're wanting to stand out, yellow is for you!  What's your favorite item?

rain rain go away

I am SO over this weather.  I mean seriously... the gloomy days, the rain, the bitter cold.  I thought I lived in Texas..??  I don't mind cold here and there and I definitely don't mind snow!  But day after day of no sun and nothing but cold rain... NOT ok!
