Glamour is contagious

I have to say the past month and a half has been a whirlwind. My fiance and I just bought a house so from closing to packing then moving...I have not been able to stop and take a breath. Now we are all moved in and getting comfy in our new digs and I can get back on track.

Since I have been absent, Spring fashion is in full bloom. Having an eye for anything and everything fashion, I wanted to share 5 easy ways to spruce up your Spring wardrobe. Some may be too bold for the liking, but you only live once...

1. Trench Coat:

Probably one of my favorite pieces. With its tailored silhouette and neutral color, this timeless wardrobe staple can be worn with nearly any outfit. Can't afford Michael Kors? Check out Old Navy's Trench Coat for $49.50.

2. Patterned Skirt:

A colorful print skirt can be matched with any variety of solid top. Consider wearing a floral skirt with a single-tone lace blouse for a soft and feminine look.

3. Floral Dress:

Nothing says lady like a floral dress! Check out this dress at Urban Outfitters for $58.00.

4. Soft Pants:

A pair of lightweight trousers are a cool and easy alternative to a skirt. I just bought a pair from Costa Blanca and Urban Behavior at HauteLook for $24.00.

Not sure how to wear it? Contrast the loose pants with a structured shirt. This will help balance the flow of the trouser.

5. Sequined Tank:

I am a full believer in accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. However not this time. Let the top do all the talking.

Day: A simple and sparkly top with your best dark denim jean.
Night: Pair a sparkly top with a short skirt.
