Fall is typically my favorite season, but after seeing all of the spring trends for 2018, I’ll have to admit, I am pretty excited for the upcoming season. I partnered with one of my favorite stores, Neiman Marcus at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, to share some of the must-haves for this spring. From classic stripes, eye-catching colors, soft sunglasses, rainbow jewelry to glittery glam, spring is looking as fabulous as ever!

Stripes seem to always make a presence in spring. Vertical, pinstripe, horizontal, diagonal, there was no shortage of stripes on the runway proving that stripes are a major print trend for spring and summer. As you can see from the pinstriped two-piece I’m strutting to the stripes on my game changer denim with bold track-inspired stripes, this classic pattern is always in style.

Two pieces are so popular right now as we approach spring. There’s also something about a matching set that instantly elevates a look. The stripes on this Alice and Olivia set crossing diagonally in different arrangements adds an updated twist to the classic print. To really make a statement, just add a fantastic, glitzy, embellished bomber. This one literally rocks as it is part of the Beatles collaboration with Alice and Olivia. I love the sporty chic stripes on the collar and sleeves which again incorporates the stripe trend.

And what’s spring without color?! Punchy pinks, sunny yellows, and vibrant reds brighten up any look. And if you are pretty neutral with your outfit like I typically am, you can always join in on the bright colors with vivid accents like this “Whatever” sweatshirt by Alice and Olivia, fun accessories such as these statement earrings from Oscar de la Renta, geometic red sunglasses from Alice and Olivia, along with my new favorite bold heels from Gianvito Rossi. And why not throw in a colorful bag while you’re at it to tie everything in?!

Everything I’m wearing is from Neiman Marcus at Fashion Island. I literally do not have to go anywhere else to shop because they carry every designer label on their second floor to more contemporary, trendy brands at Cusp on the first floor. There’s even a restaurant on the third floor, Mariposa, which is the perfect brunch spot for you and some friends. The outside terrace overlooks the ocean or you can dine inside where natural light fills the contemporary space. The food is all amazing, but I truly go for the popovers. They are so delicious with the accompanying jam that you have to take one to go (yes you can, just ask). After dining, you must check out the luxury boutiques on the first floor from Chanel to Van Cleef and Arpels to Saint Laurent and more. Neimans has everything, including personal stylists if you ever need anything for a special occasion or just want to have clothes curated for you to save on time. Their stylists are amazing and really get to know and understand your style. My fellow OC blogger, Caroline Taylor of Currently Caro, and I am obsessed with this store!

Speaking of Caro, I die for this denim top and leather skirt look she wore. The denim shirt reads “I Want To Hold Your Hand” in red on the back which complements her red Mansur Gavriel bag perfectly. And how fabulous are those pointed toe denim heels (pointed toes are another major spring trend)? She has the best legs ever and literally rocks this look head to toe!

If you haven’t been to Neiman Marcus at Fashion Island before, there’s no better time than now. Currently they are offering up to a $150 gift card with qualifying purchases AND their Beauty Event promotion where you get tons of samples and the cutest tote (perfect for summer) if you only spend $125.

Hope to see you there!

Absolutely love both looks babe! I have to say Im also super excited about Spring- Summer seasons and stripes is one of my favourite trends all year long.
This black and white stripe dress is gorgeous and looks so great on you. Another of my favourite but still haven’t still invest in a piece like this one is the track pants. I love the ones you are wearing here because they look very dressy. You have such great style babe!

Such a beautiful look with Caro. I’m loved every single match from the accessories to clothes. Great idea to mox Alice Olivia and Oscar de la Renta . I’m so excited seeing this kind off posts. Love it

Diana February 28, 2018 at 1:33 am

You both rocking every single piece. I can’t wait when spring comes and I can finally go without heavy jackets. I actually never shopped at Neiman Marcus before, I will check them out when I come back to US.

You guys are seriously too cute! I think my favorite look is the striped jumpsuit! Loving Caro’s beautiful dress too! I’ve been wanting to wear dresses a little more lately even though it’s pretty cold out!

How would you style a striped suit in 39 degree weather? Help a sister out! HAHA

As usual love all the looks!

Darya February 28, 2018 at 4:51 pm

Yay, was so looking forward to this post. Love that they featured you and Carol to show case these spring trends, finally real life women wearing clothes and not some 6 feet giraffe!! All of these looked amazing, my favorite is the sporty Alice and Olivia set, it has just enough pop of color to make it stand out and sporty and edgy and fun all wrapped in one. You two looked amazing!

Madison March 2, 2018 at 11:49 am

Christine!! Seriously bowing down. You are SO CHIC! These outfits are so bright and perfect for spring! Fun fact: I interned at Alice + Olivia in college and am a forever fan. Need that Whatever sweater, like yesterday. Neimans Fashion Island used to be my old stomping grounds so I definitely need to make the drive down and check it out! Or an even better idea: meet you there for lunch!! Missing you so much! xx

Bernice March 4, 2018 at 2:52 pm

Damn babe! That second outfit with all the colours is so fierce, and fabulous x

Tandya March 4, 2018 at 7:00 pm

This post makes me soo excited for Spring! I love Fashion Island. I feel like it is a one-stop shop. I am beyond obsessed with your white track pants! The fit is amazing and the color is perfect! I love how you paired it with the red sunnies! I am all for sets for Spring! I had no idea this Alice and Olivia was a set. I thought it was a jumpsuit. Need this in my closet!


Katya March 4, 2018 at 11:41 pm

I think fall, out of all seasons, will really get the style out of you. I agree, stripes will be huge. Most specially paired with your favorite jeans.

Fall is also my favorite season because of all the layering, but Spring comes close because we can finally wear shorts and dresses again after winter (though not really winter in SoCal). You look great in these Spring trends and I’m getting excited for this coming season too! Have a good one Christine!!

Jessie March 7, 2018 at 8:35 pm

Girl, you styles are amazing!!!! Love that jump suit! it’s so edgy and yet stylish!!!!! I’m such a sun glasses whore and I love collect all different kinds of shades!!! Love the shades you had on!! The red pair gives a nice vintage vibe and the ‘love you’ pair is so cool!!! (just wondering if you can see through normally with the writings on the lens). I want to get both pairs!!!

xx, Jessie
