Fashionable Friday with Donna Roland: Hello Beautiful!
The weather may not seem like it this week but it is time to “Spring Forward” and I don’t just mean our clocks! Monday is the official first day of spring. Is your wardrobe ready?
I had the opportunity to be in New York City last week for a day of research and fun shopping of the spring trends and am excited to share with you some of the things I saw. The key to wearing the new trends is to pick the ones that are age appropriate, style appropriate and fit your lifestyle. Just because it is “trending” doesn’t mean it is always the right trend for you. And…you don’t have to wear all the trends at once!
This season there is a little something for everyone. So find something that you like and work it into your current wardrobe to give it a little update for the season. I am going to share a few of the spring trends with you here but make sure and “like” my Facebook page “Faithfully Fashionable”

You can also find these on my Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/donnajeanroland/?hl=enor follow me on Pinterest where I have Spring/Summer 2017 Trends board https://www.pinterest.com/donnajroland/boards/.
While “Greenery” is the color Pantone chose to be the Color of the Year, pink and yellow are very trendy pop colors this season as well as blush or nude as a neutral.

- Bold prints in bright colors
