Pink Memo debuts Spring Trends at Neiman Marcus

Tonight, I joined the stylish at Neiman Marcus Downtown for a Boho Chic Spring Trend Event hosted by Pink Memo.

They advise, "When shopping this spring, the following boho influences will keep you ‘on-trend’, so remember: look cool in coral, bloom in floral, solid in stripes, glow in a white hot wardrobe, layer long necklaces, get a must-have crossbody bag, flutter in flat sandals, and one must always wear a wedge."

They weren't kidding about the coral. 

It was everywhere, from the drinks to the cupcakes, to the must-have Pleated Crocodile Magazine Tote from Nancy Gonzales that I fell IN LOVE with. At $3,400, I am not holding my breath that this will magically appear in my closet anytime soon... but stranger things have happened!

A trend I am NOT happy to see return is the wide-leg pant. I am completely enamored with my skinny jeans. They make ME feel skinny when I wear them. I do not want to wear wide-legged pants. No, no, no, no, no.  It is NOT "the flair my wardrobe is looking for" - despite what Neiman's mannequin is telling me.

After the last several weeks of snow and ice, it was fun to go look at flirty short dresses & sandals and dream of warmer days to come.   Which one of these Spring trends will you be embracing this season?
