Florals For Spring

Updated Florals for Spring with Ooh La La Boutique

Style

I’ve been a fan of wearing florals since before I could even crawl. I don’t know if it’s because of my never ending love affair with the plants themselves or maybe because there’s just an undeniably feminine charm about the budding designs.

How to Layer a Slip Dress

Style

Layering and styling a slip dress isn’t as intimidating as one may think. This versatile style has the ability to be dressed up for the most Gatsby-esque events, or worn more casually to grab an almond milk latte from your local barista. Personally, I love slip dresses because they’re such an easy way to look cute and trendy, without sacrificing comfort.

The Embroidered Denim Mini Skirt

Style

Embroidered denim and well, embroidered anything for that matter has most definitely returned to the forefront as a spring fashion trend. Largely due in part to the return of iconic American designers like Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger. Denim has been a part of America’s style history since the dawn of out time.
