Raffia for Spring

Late spring always has me loving the safari chic vibes… think neutrals, linen, earthy prints, textures and fabrics.  Which is why I picked up a few raffia pieces to mix in to my current wardrobe for some safari chic vibes.

What trends do you love for the late spring?  What are you loving as we’re more home these days?  This Everyday Cover Up Sweater has been my FAVORITE thing as of late.  I throw this on in the morning while things are still chilly, or while I’m lounging on the couch in the evening.  Its SO SOFT and just easy to wear — I already said all of this in my last post, oops.  Its that good!

How I Wore It – Safari Chic

How I wore it continues with the last installment… Safari Chic!  You saw how I wore the shift dress and skinny pants so for the last trend I went a little out of the box… and it paid off!

How I Wore It - Safari Chic

How I Wore It – Safari Chic

The first thing I thought of when I heard “safari chic” was an Express ad that had this sequin shift under a military dress belted from a few years back.  I loved the pic so much that I got the full look!  It’s hard to wear sequin during the day, but wearing it this way makes it totally do-able!  And what’s more chic than sequins!?!  And what’s more safari than a pocketed earth toned dress!?!?  Put those 2 together and safari chic!  All that’s left is to accessorize!

Safari Chic Details

Safari Chic Details

I needed a safari arm party to go with my safari look so I used a combination of mark. In The Mix bracelets and mark. Big Mix Up Bracelets.  Of course I pulled out my favorite ring from last fall the Ring Me Up Stretch Ring, and the new favorite Stack and style rings also from mark.  To bring it all together I used the mark. Studs and Style Stretch belt, a wardrobe must have in my opinion.  And what’s a safari trip without some aviators and a faux ostrich bag, The Hot To Handle bag both from mark.  You can shop the accessories at my eboutique:  http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com

Safari chic reaches from head to toe with the Wedge Right In Wedges, a new arrival from mark.  Seriously these wedges are cute comfy and completely on trend in nude with an almost aztec like detail pattern on the wedge.  I’ve been wearing them non stop and not a single pinch, pain or blister!  Shop them at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com

Like I said this look paid off because it was my winning look for mark.’s how you wear it contest!  I have a bunch of safari chic goodies headed my way and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  Check out the other winning looks! (from @markgirl ‘s facebook page)

Where It Your Way

There are a few trends that are always in style, and this spring mark. took 3 of them and asked how do you make them your own?  These 3 trends are the sheath dress, safari chic and skinny pants.  I was fully onboard for this fun task of making these trends my own. First, I needed inspiration.  And where do you go for inspiration?  Pinterest!!!

I created a board for just the task:  http://pinterest.com/ach167/how-we-wore-it/
