Style Crush: Spring Trends part 1

I've been gone for so long, so you deserve so much more than a pesky Style Crush post, but I personally love them so consider yourself lucky. :) Without blathering on for too long, here are my current favorite spring trends:

Glitter nail polish. You're talking to a girl who, before this past month, has been a matte and shiny finish girl her whole life! I hate nail polishes with shimmer, iridescence, fine glitter, chunky glitter, any of it. I like plain colors. But after I saw a post on this polish I was converted.

Bunchy Sweaters. I recently purchased a bunch of big bunchy oversize grandpa sweaters from thrift stores and have been enjoying pairing them with with things. Putting them over bold prints or even neutrals looks amazing and i love how comfy they are at the same time!

Red lips. Normally I go for a sweet pink or mauve lip, but I thought that since my skin has become so fair over the winter, I could pull off a bold red lip for spring. I was right! I've been wearing the Maybelline shade Are you Red-y and it's been a breath of spring air! (But totally out of my normal comfort zone!)

So that's part one of the spring trend edition of Style Crush. I'll be back with 3 more of my favorite new trends in a few days!
I heart you all!

I love all three things although I'm not gutsy enough to do red lips. I do love how it looks on other people though. And big ol' sweaters are an absolute staple :)

Wow thanks for sharing all of these. I NEVER wear nail polish but the glitter is so minimal I may just have to give it a try :)

I've been easing into wearing red lipstick by swiping on chapstick first, then layering a thin coat of lipstick on the top. It looks more berry than red, but you're right: it IS incredible for spring. I love this post. :)
