|While it's still wet and cold out, bust out a bright pair of rain boots to add some splash. Hunters (as well as their knockoff, more affordable counterparts) come in a range of colors and once you own them, you'll be surprised how often you turn to them. Dare I say they're even practical...Crazy talk.
Spring is all about pops of color- from one accessory to an entire ensemble.
Time to test your color limits.
And did I mention suede? Color and Suede. What a Gorgeous Lovechild.
Suede Sidewalk Skimmer from Madewell.
Need some height? Choose a wedge or heel option instead. Be sure to scotchguard lighter colored suedes so your dark denim doesn't mess with these beauties.
I adore these coral/orange hue since I can see it mixing with some chocolate hues come Fall.

That's right. Prints and Patterns Galore are surfacing this Spring.
|MADRAS. Move over, Ponyboy. Dressing like a Soc in preppy plaid is a win. Looks great with denim or tucked into a girly mini skirt.
Boy Shirt, J.Crew
|Flower Power. Florals are in bloom in every store. I love it in a collared shirt like this since it can be worn to work, tied at your waist for a casual weekend look or even used as a swimsuit coverup while on vacay.
Perfect Shirt in Ashbury Floral from J.Crew.
|Do the Polka. Don't worry. I'm not cheating on stripes, but polka dots will be everywhere in all colors and sizes beginning in Spring and lingering throughout 2012. The possibilities are endless. I like the classic blakck and white look. Mixing this style top this with a bright bottom makes the entire look more playful and ahem, Springy...
