Spring Yay or Nay?


Today I bring you my -
Spring 2104 - Yay or Nay?

Evil Eye Jewelry?

I love the hamsa and other evil eye defense jewelry.  When I was in high school I went to the Middle East (Egypt primarily) and that's when I learned about the deep seated fear of the evil eye - as soon as I got back you know I way wearing a bracelet with a ceramic eye.  But the jewelry above is much prettier and more delicate.

Crop Tops?


Unless you are one of the blessed 1% (seen above) this is a HARD look to pull off.  I know it's super big for Spring - but I just think for most it's really unrealistic.

Tarte Matte Clay Eyeshadow Palette?

This is the one cosmetic item I am trying to tell myself I don't need - but it's soooo pretty.  Do I have these colors - yes.  Are they all matte - no.  So I must need this palette.  Have I seen beautiful looks done on several bloggers - yes.  Are any of even close to my coloring - no?  It's a daily battle - ya'll.

Spring Runway Make-up Trends?

Bold lips, white shadow, smokey eyes, and nail art - hasn't this been the trend since about 2011?
I need something NEW! :)

Spring Shoe Trends?

Mules are just - something that should have been left in the 90's
White pumps rarely look classy - unless they are really expensive.
Those flats are just blagggghhhh...
and the white sandles are like something from Easy Spirit.

So that's my list...
What is on yours?



  1. I love all the evil eye jewelry! And I think you need the Tarte palette. I mean, how pretty!!! I'm torn on crop tops...they're so cool and edgy but I feel like I'd be worrying about my little muffins popping up and ruining the effect, even with a high-waisted skirt. The spring shoes are just gross. And all these "trends"...IDK, nothing feels fresh!!! :( Maybe I just have the winter blues?

  2. I don't get the mule look. Also, don't hate me, but I'm a nay on evil eye jewelry. For some reason it just creeps me out!

  3. i saw a girl at a bar last weekend with a crop top on. it's boston. in FEBRUARY. i'm all for coaxing spring's arrival, but it seemed like a little much ;)

  4. Great round up I pretty much agree with you on everything but crop tips.I feel like ppl are starting to understand how to wear them and are looking great
