Pushing our way through midterms, we are all running toward that pivotal week that reminds us that the world actually can actually be a bright and shiny place. For one week, we get a glimpse of freedom and adventure, and that week has to be just enough to help us summon the courage and motivation to make it all the way to summer. Without spring break, we’d all be lost — and without good sunglasses on spring break, our eyes will be lost.
There are so many eyewear trends popping up this time of year, but one that will never go out of style is the classic, rectangle frame. This Fashionista throws on her beige, square frames to add the finishing touch to her perfect Londoner style. These white, rectangle frames from Warby Parker will lighten up any of those winter basics that you may still be clinging to through the transition into spring. Perhaps you want something a little less neutral, and are yearning for a frame that will get you noticed in whatever land you escape to during this holiday. These circle frames from Free People remind me of something John Lennon wore back in the ’70s. They are so dainty, yet incredibly daring. If anyone is lucky enough to spend their spring break soaking up some tunes at SXSW, these are a definite necessity.
It’s no secret that skater skirts are all the rage this year — they are so easy to pair with a crop top without showing too much skin. However, the way this Fashionista layered her skater skirt with a chambray and a sweater, has got to be my favorite way that I’ve seen it styled yet. It says, “I understand it is still technically winter, but I needs it to be spring now.” Use this pleated skater skirt to channel that darling school-girl vibe that this Fashionista achieves so flawlessly.
I love the way she dresses the ensemble down with her polka-dot Keds, but if you’re looking to spice it up a little, give these buckle cut-out booties a try. They’re a bit out there, but have been blowing up the blogosphere lately. They transition into the summer quite naturally, since they are so strappy. I’ve read that they just might be this year’s new sandal! Pair them with your favorite skater skirt and circle sunnies, and you can accomplish an oh-so-cool schoolgirl by day/rocker by night look that works anywhere, anytime.
