Ahh the warm weather, the smell of flowers and freshly cut grass in the air, I love Spring! Being a true fashionista, the best part of Spring for me though, is tossing the sweaters and jeans to the side and breaking out some fun, flirty, playful spring fashion that shows just a bit more skin.

Now is the time to start shopping for and wearing bright colors and pretty prints. Spring is the perfect time of year for really pulling out the vibrant looks, and showing your personality through your clothing.

Lately, I’ve been on the lookout for just that, but for a look that will also easily take me from day to night. I live away from the City and when I go into town for the weekend, I really need a look that is casual enough for day, but still totally looks chic and sophisticated for a night out! 

I recently found this lovely Bright orange mottled print cami and beige faux suede zip pockets mini skirt from Apricot perfect for my weekend look!

The outfit is super comfy while still staying true to my style aesthetic. I love that it’s totally appropriate for some shopping in hot weather during the day (thanks to the laid back vibe of the suede mini). But when you add the right accessories (heels and a cute designer shoulder bag), you’ve got the perfect look for an evening party too!

When shopping for looks you can take from day to night this spring, Don’t be afraid of color. It will pop and easily take that casual daytime look from day to night.

Also look for pieces that are feminine and still a bit flirty but not over the top sexy (in which case it won’t work so well for day). I love dresses and tops with open backs because you can wear a jacket over for day and then reveal that sexy fun detailing for night, and all you had to do was lose the jacket!

Switching looks from day to night can be easy once you keep these things in mind, and of course don’t forget the right accessories! I love wedges for spring because they are totally daytime appropriate but still make a fantastic heel for night. Chain Shoulder bags are also great because they look great with both casual and a more sophisticated evening look as well!

Spring Trends 2016 Nude Skirts.

By April Golightly (Guest blogger for SelfieMark).

Midi skirts are the medium length between knee length skirts and maxi skirt. When I first saw girls wearing these mid length skirts, I dismissed them as tall girl skirts. Petite women usually cannot pull off skirts that hit at such an unflattering length. Since I am always tripping over maxi skirts, I was only left with knee length and shorter skirts. This effective left me wearing skirt out to dinners with my husband sans kids. As a stylish mom that likes being able to wear skirts and be able to run after my daughter without accidently flashing bystanders, midi skirts are perfect for me. I found this amazing flowy midi skirt that is both comfortable and flattering. If you follow April Golightly, you know that I can’t stop wearing this midi skirt.

Leopard Look

This first look is an amazing combination of leopard and the nude blush midi skirt worn with the extremely on trend, lace up pointy flats. This is the perfect look for a brunch with your girlfriends! Get more details on this look here: http://aprilgolightly.com/jewelry-trends-2016/
