This time of year is so fun at B. Whimsy. Since we went to Market in January and again just a couple of weeks ago, we are constantly getting in new shipments between now and June. You could come in the store every week, and it would look different each time.
We have gotten in new Spring floral and moss balls. Gorgeous (and a little less expensive!) lamps from a new vendor. Fun new artwork. Tons of picture frames. Three pallets of home decor items just yesterday. Four styles of the always popular FLY shoes. And, this week, we got in a lot of new, fun, bright, unique clothes.
For our Friday Five this week, we are sharing some outfit ideas and five of the trends we saw at Market! Most styles pictured below are now available in store and select items are available in our online store! We will add more styles to our online store over the coming weeks, so be sure to check back often or follow us on Facebook for announcements when new items are available!
1. Lots and lots of layers
Layer on your accessories – wear 2 or 3 necklaces at different lengths and add a collection of bangles. Add a kimono or sweater over your outfit. And try a pop of color underneath.
2. Traditional florals
One of my favorite lines in the Devil Wears Prada is when Miranda Priestly sarcastically says, “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking…” All jokes aside, traditional, English style florals in bold colors are particularly trendy this season.
(And this romper is going fast – click here to order one online!)
3. Details galore
We’re seeing so many fun and unexpected details in clothes this season. Look for items with a pop of lace, a unique cut or hemline, crochet, or maybe some fringe.
4. Bold patterns
Bold colors and big patterns are all the rage. Don’t be afraid to mix your patterns either!
5. Dresses, skirts, and distressed denim
In my opinion, warmer weather calls for flowy skirts and dresses! Maxi dresses or skirts and simple shift dresses continue to be really popular this year. But if you just can’t ditch your jeans, look for distressed denim. The more distressed, the better!
