Hi everybody! It’s time for another fabulous Link-Up showcasing my fabulous blogging friends! Spring gives us a fresh start doesn’t it? We can lighten our wardrobe, pull out fun colors to wear, and start showing our toes in cute sandals again! Each season brings a few changes, as styles and fashion trends change, and sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming. I’ve noticed quite a few trends for this Spring including strappy sandals, snake and animal print, neon colors, bright florals, bootcut jeans, and this year’s Pantone color – Coral. Read on to see how my talented blogging friends do Spring in high style!

Bootcuts are Back Baby!
This news could not make my heart any happier! Bootcut jeans are a pear shaped girl’s dream come true. They’re figure flattering, and the perfect silhouette to showcase our best features. I discovered these curvy fit bootcuts at Old Navy and am in love with them. They wear well, don’t stretch out and are super comfortable. They’re also a perfect length for boots, cute booties, like these from my January Stitch Fix, dressy pumps, or a strappy heel. You can dress them up or down. I styled them here with a cute graphic tee and turquoise jewelry.
I wore them on our recent trip to the Ozarks. I am so thrilled they’re back in style! (Did they ever really go out?)
How to Style Bootcuts with a White Blouse
For this example I styled my curvy bootcuts with a plain white blouse, pearls and pink heels. I’ve been really enjoying the Netflix series Frankie and Grace – so I popped my collar ala Grace! I’m so fancy!
How to Style Bootcuts with a Bright Kimono
I paired my bootcuts with a brightly colored kimono that is absolutely perfect for Spring. Dressing in layers is mandatory in the springtime. I found the snake print wedge sandals (another huge trend this year) at a local boutique. A bit of heel with the bootcuts lengthens the legs, which is another great style trick in the old toolbox! I styled the jacket with a chunky necklace. The combination of bright colors on top and bootcut hemline are a perfect disguise for a pear shape! Winning!
How to Style Bootcuts with a Blue Denim Jacket
I know what you’re thinking. This just can’t work. I mean, denim on denim, amIright? I think it works if your denims aren’t matchy-matchy, like I did here. I also layered a cute floral scarf on top, again to draw the eye up and away from the hips.
How to Style Bootcuts with a White Denim Jacket
This look might be more in your comfort zone, if you’re unsure about the whole denim on denim thing. I styled a white denim jacket with a brightly colored floral tank. The tank is a tad longer than the jacket, disguising the hips, and emphasizing the top of my outfit. It’s a simple outfit, but is comfortable and cute!
