It is almost April and it is still chilly here.  In my closet my Spring wardrobe is just waiting to make its debut.  At some point last Fall I started obsessing over the Spring trends and have slowly been scouring the sales racks for new items that now I’M DYING TO WEAR.

This Spring and Summer I’ll be wearing my two piece, matchy matchy floral outfit, found here for less than 30 euro.

Or my new open front, lace blazer, found while in Lisbon last July with my sister on sale for 40 euro, layered with my gingham, 50’s inspired full skirt which I’ve worn before in this post here.

 

I remember the Spring after I had my son, three years ago, I looked into my closet and thought ” I have NO IDEA what’s in style or even trendy this season”.  I was totally out of it.  Before he was born I was always obsessively researching the trends because of my work, and the fear of going to Fashion Week in something totally outdated.

 

So now, I’m glad to say that I’m back to keeping my eye on the trends (while gravitating towards things I’ll like for more than one season), and I usually find some nice things at a price that anyone can handle.

 

These are the SS2015 trends I am dying to wear plus where you can find them now at a really good price.

 

Bright Hawaiian Jungle Floral Print Combos

Valentino, Etro, Thakoon….one of my favorite catwalk trends to hit the Spring and Summer runways was the *matchy matchy* Jungle floral trend. Maybe it’s because I’m dying for warmer weather, but when I see these outfits I can totally picture myself by the beach with a cocktail in hand, with the Beach Boys playing in the background, surround by Italians trying to sing along even though they don’t know the words.

It is cheerful, bright and surprisingly flattering and if you follow my Spring 2015 Inspiration board on Pinterest you may have seen these looks pinned:

Now, I don’t have a Valentino budget but I just couldn’t resist buying into this look, so I bought number 3 on this list plus matching shorts . If you are coveting this look but not the price tag here are some other great finds.  Please note all of the stores I’ve included in this post are international with free shipping options, and the dollar/euro exchange rate is ridiculously good right now!

Gingham – Taste it again for the First Time

If you’ve been looking for an excuse to wear your grandmother’s vintage gingham dress NOW IS THE TIME! Gingham is going to be HUGE this spring and summer and I LOVE IT.  It is feminine, pretty, flattering and works well with another trend this season – the lace blazer.  I love these runway looks that pair gingham and lace together.  Gingham can be worked into office wear, summer birthday party outfits, a weekend stroll look or even a hot summer date night (I wish!). These are some of the luxury looks I’ve pinned to my SS2015 board dedicated to Gingham on Pinterest!

But if your looking to recreate this look without the luxury budget these are all totally cute options that are all under 38 Euro ($41!!!).

A Lace Blazer

 

If you’ve seen this post from a few weeks ago you know that I am obsessing over white lace for this spring.  It was EVERYWHERE on the catwalk shows and the street style bloggers also have it on repeat.  If you only buy one item this season this is a MUST HAVE!

Wearing white lace doesn’t need to be about exposing your bra and revealing a lot of skin,  this is a really easy and sophisticated way to layer for summer without getting too hot.

 

I’ll be wearing my lace blazer (the one I found in Portugal for 40 euro) with EVERYTHING as soon as I can!  I plan on pairing it with a white t-shirt and rolled boyfriend jeans plus white leather sandals.  I will also wear it on top of my vintage gingham skirt with a cropped top underneath, and I’ll wear it with super high heels and wide leg pants if I ever have another dressy event to go to.  (**As a side note, I really wish more people got married in Italy!**)

I’ve covered the white lace trend in detail in this post , and if you check out my Pinterest Board dedicated to the trend you’ll notice that many designers like Valentino, Roberto Cavalli and Ermanno Scervino featured lace blazers.

My 40 euro ($43) option has long since sold out, but these are 4 options I’ve found online at different price points, my favorite being number 1!

4// Lace Eyelet Bolero (also available in black) $110 – Found here

 

I’m really glad I finally got around to sharing this, even though it’s taken me such a long time to put this together.  I hope it gives anyone out there at a loss for what’s in style this Spring and Summer a starting point.  Ultimately though, I truly believe personal style is much more than following the trends. It is about interpreting them to fit into your own life and style.

 

Thank you to everyone who has written me e-mails asking about Spring trends for moms and what to wear, I’ve had 5 different e-mails!! These posts are for you and I’ll continue to post about SS2015 trends that fit into any budget throughout the month.

  • All of it. I just got the most fab gingham button down (it’s a mens small) at the thrift. LOVE your two piece matchy matchy look – i need it – there’s something so easy, and put together about two piece matches.

    • YES. I need to hit up the mercato for some good thrifted items! And I agree, I’m hoping that this two piece ensemble will help me dress quickly and look like I at least made an effort….now all I have to do is keep it wrinkle free (not going to happen).

      Oh well…do you think I’ll still look polished if I’m covered in creases?

    I can’t wait to break out the gingham again when the weather improves a bit! And I love big and bold tropical prints. I’ve got flares on my list too!! x

    • OMG is it possible that I am ALREADY jealous of your Gingham collection? I’m sure you have an amazing selection of vintage items I will covet! And I WISH I could wear flares, but alas at 149 cm I just can’t handle them (but if I had your legs…that would be another story!)

  • For years I didn’t wear any floral or jungle prints, but now I’m the proud owner of a floral dress and a jungle print dress, which I will wear come summer! White lace is a favorite of mine and own 2 dresses plus a vintage top! The other day I saw a lace trench coat on Free People, but wouldn’t justify the need to buy it!

    • You have great will power!! I probably couldn’t have resisted. Can’t wait to see your floral AND jungle print dresses. Prints are a first for me, I literally own nothing (aside from this new two piece) with a bold print, so I’m totally stepping out of my comfort zone.

    Gingham is an awesome print that I really do not think a lot of people appreciate. I am glad you included it in your list.
