Spring Fling

I am loving all the new clothes out for spring. I am having an especially torrid affair with Loft and Gap right now. I rarely buy clothes for myself that aren't on sale and I am almost NEVER loyal to one particular store. I have been called the "queen of separates" on more than one occasion. I just know what I like and will buy things that I see on sale and figure I have something in my closet that I can put it with.
I'm sure my mother takes great pleasure in knowing this. As a kid, I was always so irritated with her because we didn't go to the store and buy an outfit, we scoured the sale racks. We didn't do this out of necessity, we did this out of my mother's aversion to paying full price for anything. I thought this totally sucked when I was growing up. Especially since my bestie was know for her fabulous shopping sprees where she would come home with COMPLETE OUTFITS (gasp) ready
to wear. In my case, the old adage "I am my mother" proves true. She taught me an invaluable lesson in not only saving money, but knowing how to throw an outfit together. I am particularly loving the look of romantic flowers and bows paired with ripped boyfriend jeans. Here are a few of the things I am loving right now...
There's just something about the juxtaposition of the sloppy "boyfriend" look paired with the sweet ruffles and flowers that I can't seem to get enough of. I've put a dressier style top with my ripped boyfriend jeans. I've worn a necklace like the one below with a boyfriend t shirt and jeans with a dressy shoe. Those crinkle flower sandals up there are from the Gap, I got them in gray and navy. They are so comfy and have elicited more compliments than you can fathom. Go getcha some and see what I mean!

So, what are your favorite spring/summer trends?
