Spring 2017 Trends with Neiman Marcus

As promised, here are the Spring 2017 Trend Report from Neiman Marcus interpreted by NM Fashion Valley's own Style Advisor, Alex Yáñez!

Ruffles & Flounces
We have seen this fun and flirty trend on and off the runway, but this season they are taken up a notch as can be seen in these ideas.

Shirting Redefined 
According to Neiman Marcus, shirting for Spring has "The menswear standard- reworked for her" Love the way this otherwise button up top is redefined and brought down to the shoulder - totally new! I saw Aimee Song wear it this way shortly after I saw this report so this is definitely a trend to look out for (and maybe partake in!)
Big statement earrings were a common theme all throughout the presentation, from colorful ones to textured ones, it will definitely turn some heads.

I mean, I haven't been able to stay away from stripes, but I love that Alex showed us this stripes on stripes combo! Now that my friends is taking our love for lines to a whole new level.

Although when I think of neutrals, I typically think whites and creams, Neiman Marcus is bringing our attention to the standout neutral of the season, olive green.
Mini bags are a thing, and Alex just showed how you can layer a mini bag over another bag for an even cooler look!

Everything Embellished
And by everything they mean everything. Look at these pants with patches all over paired with an embellished jacket and then the embellished shoes! The more embellishment the better!
All this fashion while we ate this beautiful lunch and the dessert was not only the clothes rack they brought out but the cake, O-M-G!

Winter Outfit with Spring Vibes

What do you do when you have a Spring Trend Report luncheon and it's cold outside? You add touches of Spring to your otherwise Winter outfit! Well at least that was my solution for this year's Spring Trend Report at Neiman Marcus Fashion Valley (which I will cover in the next blog post)! Interesting enough, this time last year I was taking advantage of how warm San Diego was and wore this! This year I was so cold as I was getting ready that I decided to go with trousers instead of a dress, go figure!

Striped Statement Skirt

Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day! The hubby and I decided to order take out and relax in our home to avoid the madness (which was perfect for us), but now that that's over with, it's back to non-themed everyday chic looks! 

The best way to describe San Diego weather is Hot N' Cold (like one of my fave Katy Perry songs, lol), but seriously one day it's raining, the other day it's sunny, so dressing up for this weather has been challenging.

I knew I wanted to wear this cabi Grandstand skirt from the Spring 2017 collection, but the gray skies didn't allow me to take it all the way to Springtown, so I adjusted the look with a black turtleneck and moto jacket.

Black Lace for Valentine's

Valentine's Day is already tomorrow, and I wanted to sneak this outfit idea in that has only subtle pops of red. Even if it's not for V-day, it's a nice look for date night. Just like LBD's, a black top and trouser pairing offers versatility and instant chicness. I especially looooved this top because the lace looks elegant and the peplum shape is very flattering!

Versatile Outfit Pieces

As much as I'm a lover of color and classic chic pieces, I'm also a fan of versatile basics because they keep me sane when I'm in my closet and facing that daunting question of "what to wear?" I find that I've been wearing these pieces over and over, just styled differently (i.e. wore this vest here), and I'm not feeling like a repeat offender! Plus, these pieces are comfortable which was the biggest selling point of pairing this all together to go to my sister-in-law's forest themed baby shower, where I would be running around organizing the games!
