Fun fact: trend forecasting is one of my favorite things about fashion. It might be the inner nerd in me coming out, but I love the creativity and science behind it all. Even though the trends each season can seem so random and sometimes surprising, there is definitely a method to the madness. I think that’s one of the reasons I truly don’t mind scrolling through pages and pages of clothes online, because I love noticing the patterns and repeating motifs in all of the designs. I think it is so cool to see how thousands of different designers are all contributing to the bigger story of fashion. Trends also relate to the bigger idea that fashion, the clothing we wear everyday, does not stand alone from the rest of life. In contrast, life (the economy, current events, politics, faith etc) all affect the things that our eyes and senses are drawn to! 

Wow, did not mean to get off on that tangent! Back to the point of this post- SPRING TRENDS & the SHOPBOP BIG EVENT! Some of you may have already heard about the Big Event that kicked off yesterday, and basically SHOPBOP is offering up to 25% off their entire site, including new arrivals, with the code BIGEVENT16! It’s definitely the best time to make any spring/summer purchases you had in mind! 

I narrowed down this season's trends to my SIX favorites, and and I'm sharing the all the items I love and that are *on sale for the shopbop big event* under each category! btw, you can click directly on the image to shop!

P.s. I’ve created a new “SHOPBOP BIG EVENT” page under the "SHOP" tab where I will be updating all my favorite products until the end of the sale, in case you want to check back!
