Currently Crushing On Pineapples

If I had my stuff together this would of been a Trending Tuesday post however it’s Wednesday so it’s just and obsession post. ¬†With the mark. Instant Vacation Maui Bliss release and the start of all things summer I’m OBSESSING over all things tropical. ¬†What seems to be the tropical pattern of the moment, PINEAPPLES! ¬†They’re everywhere from fashion to food. ¬†Here’s what I’m currently crushing on:

Fashion:¬† From a small accent on your bag to full on pineapple print this summer pineapples are still going strong. ¬†I love the appliqu√© tote from Avon. ¬†Perfect bag for weekend, picnic or the beach. ¬†If you’re heading to a fair or amusement park these Avon Tropical Slip On Sneakers are perfect with shorts and a tee, or try the mark. Coconapple Tee from the Maui Bliss collection. ¬†Erica sported it with the mark. Stroke Of Genius Shorts! ¬†(see more here)

Tech:  I stare at my lappy all day and on my phone way too much not to have a cute background.  I just downloaded this pineapple and palm leaf one from laurenconrad.com.

Food: ¬†Pineapple is definitely one of my top summer time fruits, but it is hard to cut. ¬†That’s why a corer is a MUST! ¬†This one from Avon makes making pineapple salsa a reality and so does this recipe from Katie Lee. ¬†Not only am I crushing on Katie Lee’s pineapple on pineapple outfit on her Today Show segment, but¬†her tenderloin tacos with pineapple salsa recipe sounds perfect for a summer night. ¬†Be sure to watch the video¬†for not only the how-to but also a good look at that outfit!

Beauty: ¬†I’m definitely nailing a good pineapple mani/pedi this summer like this pinspiration one, but first is the proper prep. ¬†The Avon Footworks line is not only actually really really good, it’s also really really affordable and this summer they’re debuting the Pineapple Chill scent. ¬†That will refresh your feet with a cooling pineapple treat… and a twist of lime. ¬†Check out this sneak peek from Samantha¬†(with the upcoming Avon Pineapple Watch and Avon Tropical Slip On Sneakers).

Trending Tuesday – #springcolors

If the world of alicia was the internet #springcolors would totally be trending. I’m so ready to embrace color! I’ve been sporting a lot of soft shades¬†(as seen here) but things are warming up and so should my tones! Maybe it has to do with the fact that all my spring and summer items are still in the attic so I’m working with what I have in my year round closet… but it’s time to bust out the color. Here are some trendy colors for this spring!

1. Citron

Citron for Spring

Citron for Spring

Anything from cheery lemon yellow to neon lime is in the citron category. ¬†Which means your options are good! ¬†This color is super easy to wear because all you need is a pop! ¬†Or go mega watt like may favorite look from last summer (see here). ¬†I love it paired with light grey and white but it looks good with everything from bright blue to navy to tan to black to even pink! ¬†On my wish list, this mark. Bright Inside Tote with it’s citron lining!

2.  Pastels

Pastel Blue for Spring

Pastel Blue for Spring

What spring doesn’t include pastels? ¬†This year the water colored pastels seem to be more trending so your aquamarines, periwinkle, robin egg blue, seawater green, etc. ¬†These pair really well with tans and beige’s, which a toasted almond kind of shade seems to be THE¬†neutral¬†color hot for spring.

3.  Tangerine

Tangerine Lips with mark. All Butter Now in Coraltini

I think this ties right in with the citron trends, a bright citrus¬†orange with red undertones makes Tangerine a must. ¬†It looks great on pretty much every skin tone and brings out your just developing tan. ¬†Try it anchored with black for a punch of color. ¬†It’s also great in a lip shade. ¬†I’ve been sporting mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Coraltini. ¬†It’s definitely a super wearable tangerine lip that for only $11 you can wear the trend at a super low investment.

4. Marsala 

Pantone Color for Spring 2015 Marsala

Pantone Color for Spring 2015 Marsala

Marsala was the Pantone color for spring 2015. ¬†I’m not huge on this shade but pair it with these other hot trending shades and it’s a great pallet! ¬†With the 90’s resurgence we can see why this mauve shade is super popular.

5.  Pineapples 

Pineapple Prints for Spring

Pineapple Prints for Spring

Ok, ok, so pineapples aren’t a color but this graphic print is so hot right now (said like Zoolander). ¬†You’ll see this print pop up on everything to tanks to bags to dresses to flip flops! ¬†My favorite right now are these LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s flip flops in a cute pineapple print but they’re not on the website yet, I’ve only seen them in store. ¬†Ultimately I want those freaking Lilly Pulitzer for Target ones but I doubt I’ll find them returned in my size, or online for a reasonable resell price. ¬†Oh well…
