Happy Cinco De Mayo!!!

Cinco De Mayo

I’m loving the idea of wearing tribal prints and neons for Cinco De Mayo this year. The combination of the two seems like the perfect attire for a fiesta filled with margaritas and tequila shots. I plan to wear my tribal print mini with a neon orange tee and some beige wedges.

Grilled chicken fajitas are one of my favorite meals and margaritas are one of my favorite alcoholic drinks, so I’ve always enjoyed Cinco De Mayo. When drinking margaritas, I like to keep it simple and on the rocks, and my favorite recipes always consist of adding Grand Marnier. I’ve found I really like this recipe and if you’re into margaritas, you should definitely check it out!

Hope you all have a very Happy Cinco De Mayo and of course, stay safe!

That’s so 90’s?

What wasn’t awesome about the 90’s? With Third Eye Blind, overalls and Fresh Prince, growing up in the 90’s was pretty much “da bomb!” I totally confess to rocking the Jansport, stirrup pants, and collecting every Beanie Baby ever made! However, while browsing the interweb at work today, I came across this little gem from CG blog that took me back to the good ‘ole days….ChEck It OuT.

What I couldn’t help but notice was that fact that these “don’t even go there” trends from the 90’s seem to be making a reappearance this Spring, however not exactly in the same way as before.

Neons!

White, colored and pastel jeans oh my!

military/motorcycle boot

Even though the trends of today are a little different than the way they were in the 90’s, I think it’s fun to see the way history tends to repeat itself. What was your favorite thing from the 90’s?

8 Days…Spring Neons

Spring Neons
Bright neons are popping up all over this Spring. From subtle hints to full blown color explosions, neon is a such a fun trend to mess around with this season. Try it out with a bright bottom and neutral top or vice versa. You can even go neutral and add neon accessories, or if you feeling bold match up more than one neon at once!
Nanette Lepore gets flashy with neons on the Spring 2012 runway.
The options are endless so have some fun with this trend! I know I will!
