Hi everyone!! It's been so nice and warm lately that I've started to get excited about busting out my spring clothes :) If you live somewhere warmer than here (lucky duck!), you've probably already started sporting your spring favs, but for those of us living in cooler climates spring is just around the corner. Here are five spring trends that I'm excited to wear:

1. The Military-Inspired Jacket
I really love the new light-weight military jackets that have become popular this spring. I searched for the perfect coat - a light, spring jacket in army green with an oversized hood - for a couple of months to no avail, only to stumble across it in Garage Clothing of all places. Just goes to show that you should never judge a book by its cover.

2. The Bomber Jacket
Nothing says spring chic like a bomber jacket. Since they are so easy to dress up or down, bomber jackets are the perfect piece for maximum use value and versatility. Try pairing it with a pair of dark jeans and a sweater for a casual look or over a party dress for a dressier option.

3. The Wedge
I love the look of wedges in the spring and summer. They seem so elegant and safari-chic (not that any self-respecting woman would actually wear high heels on a real desert safari). However, wedges can easily slip over the line from tasteful to tacky if not done right. Stay away from coloured heels (wood or woven heels look more natural and classy) and avoid bootie-style wedges unless you are the newest member of the Black Eyed Peas.

4. Orange
Oh orange, how I love you. I can't tell you how excited I was to see so much orange on the runway this season. I have been a proud orange-wearer for some time now and I feel like the citrusy hue gets a bad wrap. When you're wearing orange (like any colour really), choose a shade that flatters your skin tone. Try on burnt oranges, bright oranges, and neon oranges and see what suits you best. If you're feeling nervous about wearing such a bold colour, then start with orange accessories and work your way up :)

5. The Maxi Skirt
I really love the idea of a maxi skirt for spring. If you've ever worn a maxi skirt/dress, you'll know how disconcertingly comfortable they are. You'll never want to wear pants again! When you're shopping for a maxi skirt, feel free to play with pattern and colour - all you have to do is throw on a white tank and you're ready to go. And for the record - I don't know where this rumour came from - maxi skirts and dresses look good on tall girls and short girls alike. As long as you don't loose your proportions (add a belt at the waist, wear a slim-fitting top, etc.) you'll look great!
