I'VE GOT THE FEVER!

...Spring fever, that is. I fully and totally admit that having grown up in Southern California has made me into a TOTAL weather wimp. We've had so many days in the low 60's out here lately (and nights in the 40's, gasp!) that it has had the effect of increasing my need for warmer spring weather to freakish amounts. I know, it's pathetic. The good news is my 80 degree weather salvation is ALMOST here. Thankfully.

So in an uncharacteristic move for me, I'm keeping today's fashions very casual. In the recesses of my brain right now its all about easy care cotton tops, bright colors, jeans and shorts. Yes. (By the way, all clothing in this post is available from Forever 21 and shoes from Payless)

Either the Checkered Woven Shirt $17.80
or the Crinkled Layered Tunic $19.80
would look great with the Fab Ankle Skinny Jean $12.50
and the Fiona Ballet Flat $14.99
The Daisies Draped Tunic $19.80
I would pair with the Fab Find Leggings in Blue $4.50
and the Vallin Sandal $22.99 for a colorful and easy outfit
Next I would get into the 90's throwback spirit with the Ginger Woven Tunic $22.80
and the Krissa Frayed Flair Jean $29.80
with the Airwalk Abby Clogs $24.99
rounding out the nostalgia
For those really sunny days I would grab the Neon Trim Knit Top $10.90
and the color Frayed Denim Short in White $15.80
throw on some white thongs like these I Love Shoes Sandals $7.99 (yes yes I know, flip flops will be the death of us all)
grab some serious sunblock and bask in the sunshine

I also really like this Perforated Leaf Tunic $22.80
paired with the Chelsea Frayed Straight Jean in grey $22.80
and the Shout Sandal $16.99

So those are my pairings for today. Maybe soon it will be warm enough to turn them from a dream into a reality :-)
PS - if you can't tell, I don't think we've seen the last of the silver and gold shoe trend yet. And this makes me happy!

I really like the ankle jeans. They're perfect for summer.
