Spring is approaching fast! Daylight saving time just went into effect and I couldn’t be more excited! I hated getting off work at 4:30 and it was already dark. I don’t know what it is but during the work week after the sun goes down I feel like it’s time to call it a day and head home. But my favorite season is almost here so I’m lookin’ to get my Spring wardrobe in order. There will be several spring trend posts in the coming weeks so get ready!

Metallic is one of the biggest trends for Spring and its has been popping up all over the runway. I’m not just talking about the traditional gold and silver metallics; the garments include beautiful iridescent pastel colors (pastels are a weakness of mine). Everything from coats, shimmering pencil skirts to delicate brocade jackets. Check out some of the looks!

Now, many of these pieces are hundreds of dollars so if you’re pockets are filled with more lint than moola like mine you need some more affordable options. I found some dope metallic pieces online.
