Week's Best Looks: March 24th 2013.

Another Sunday, another difficult decision on whom to choose to feature today. Ultimately there were A LOT of looks I liked. I think as Spring is approaching (technically Spring came this week, a couple of days ago), a lot of you are bringing out Beautiful, Bright Colors as well as Light, Spring pieces to wear despite cold temperatures, freezing temperatures actually, and snow on the ground. For example, this week you will see lots of Yellow (and its sister color Mustard), lots of Teal and Hot Pink, not just in the clothes, but in accessories and jewelry as well. Speaking of jewelry, lots of Beautiful Necklaces this week from a couple of the Popular Bubble Necklaces, to Sparkly Silver Necklaces, Beaded Necklaces and Stone Necklaces in many Fun Colors like: Aqua, Coral, Turquoise, Yellow & Green. As always many Stripes this week, but even more Polka Dots. We also have a couple of Gingham Plaid items (love the dress, especially). A lot of awesome handbags this week too, from stuff-everything-in Large Purses to Cross-Body Bags to Cute Clutches. We have a little Floral and even a couple of pieces in a Bird-Print. Pencil Skirts, Pretty Blouses & Button-Downs. Lace is very popular in this week's collages. It is after all Marion's Trend of the Month. Chiffon is another popular material, this week. You will also see a couple of Nice Trench-Coats. We have a couple of Chambray Shirts & a Jean Jacket in the mix. There are also a few pairs of Cropped Pants, preparing these ladies and all of us for Spring. =) As far as shoes go, yes Booties are still very popular, but so are Black Ballet Flats & Nude Pumps which prove even more that they match everything & elongate the legs.

As usual, a lot of popular ladies this week and a lot of regulars. But at the same time we have some 'newbies', at least to me. =) This week I also present you (they are new to this feature) 10 new faces, such as Lauren from Sophisticated in Style, Megan from TF Diaries, Catherine from Not Dressed as Lamb and Agnes from Vodka Infused Lemonade. Also, 4 of the ladies this week had such Stellar Outfits, I had to include two of each because I was having such a hard time choosing, for real.
Kayla from H&K Style Journey wore a Gorgeous Electric Blue Gown to her Prom. But she also had a very simple but Chic Black+White Look that I loved. Ginny from My New Favorite Outfit is a Stylish Teacher with a Girly Style. She had a great week of outfits, too. But when I saw the Chevron Red Skirt paired with the Teal Cardigan, and the other Teal/Aqua Outfit with a Matching Statement Necklace I had to include both. Alice from Happiness at Mid Life posted about 20 great outfits this week - never posted before and left in Draft. I usually show her dressier style with skirts & ensembles from White House Black Market, but this time there were two more casual outfits that caught my eye the most. Finally, Amy from Classy in a Classroom celebrated her 23rd Birthday in Style, this week.
=)

Here are this week's 31 Lovely Looks:
 From top to Bottom, Clock-Wise (each Collage):
Catherine wears her Yellow Sweater & Blue Jeans with a Man-Inspired Olive Coat, a Gorgeous Aqua & Teal Sparkly Necklace, Camel Oxford Booties & a Beautiful Hot Pink Purse.
Dayami wore a lot of Pretty Pencil Skirt Ensembles this week but ultimately her Hot Pink Blazer, White Lace Top & Girly Floral Skirt attracted me the most. Perhaps because of the Colors?
Heather is wearing her Favorite Blazer (in one of My Favorite Colors) with My Favorite Necklace - the Popular Bubble Necklace in Black. She Dressed Up her Jeans, for sure.
Megan loves clothes with Birds on them & this Blouse with a Peter Pan Collar is totally her Style. She wears it with a Raspberry Pencil Skirt with boning detail & Mustard Cardigan, keeping it Girly & Slender, all the way.
Ginny's 1st Outfit features a Zig-Zag Red & White Skirt that flows. She pairs it with an Elbow-Sleeve Teal Cardigan, Wedges & a Long Necklace, hoping it is Spring.
Ginny's 2nd Outfit is worked around a Versatile Black+White Stripped Sweater under which she layered an Aqua Button-Down, paired with a Teal Pencil Skirt & Matching Statement Necklace.
Sam is wearing a Gorgeous Off-White Lace Skirt with a Simple Pretty Peach Tee, letting the Skirt be the Focal Point. I do like her Gold Cuffs on each wrist.
Kate wears her Pleated Mini LBD with a Gorgeous Leopard Coat over it. A Nice Gold Watch, Black Tights, Simple Gold Necklace, Black Leather Purse & Brown, Open-Toed Booties round up her look.
Molly shows off her Cute 20-week bump in a Pretty White Lace Dress worn with Black Pieces. I like her Sunglasses & Booties. She is posing adorably, too.
Alice's 1st Outfit shows off a Bright Magenta/Hot Pink Stripped Tunic worn over leggings & knee-high Leather Boots. Love the Floral Pin on her Long Necklace & the Fun Hot Pink Cocktail Ring. Nice Cross-body bag, too.
Alice's 2nd Outfit also from her Casual Collection pairs some Fall Colors like Oxblood, Beige, Cognac & Taupe as well as some Trends: Polka Dots, Bubble Necklace & Fur Vest.
Lauren is wearing a Cute Anchor Top with Pastel Baby Blue Cropped Pants. She added some bracelets, Black Ballerinas & a Quilted Little White Purse. She looks ready for Spring!
Laura is also wearing Bird-Print. Her Girly Skirt looks adorable with the Sunny Yellow Button-Down, Sassy Cognac Booties, Brown Clutch, Armful of Bracelets & Tortoise Watch.
Ashley greeted the first day of Spring with a popular Army Vest on top of a Button-Down with Cropped Skinny Black Pants & an Emerald Statement Necklace. I love her Curls, too.
Lauren's Royal Blue Polka Dot Blouse is Girly & Dressy, especially paired with a Silver Chain Link Necklace, Cute Bow Ring & a Fun, Little Black Skirt.
Tiffany wore her Classic Black Suit with a Bright Yellow Sweater & a Pretty, Infinity, Lilac Scarf, completed with Black Pumps, of course.
Alison looks Pretty & Preppy in her Navy Blazer, Chambray Shirt, Bright Coral Pants complete with a Yellow Statement Necklace, Dangly Coral Earrings, a Gold Watch & Paisley Wedge Espadrilles.
Nicole is wearing a Black+White Tunic Dress with Cascading, Asymmetric Ruching. But it's that Large Lemon Yellow Bag that stands out. I have always loved Black, White & Yellow together.
Rita is both Preppy & Girly by pairing a Pink Gingham Button-Down with a White Bucket Skirt. High Heels add Sex Appeal & check out her Gorgeous Statement Necklace with Colorful Stones.
Lulu tells us she is a Gap Girl at heart since her outfit is from there. Loving the Modern Print of those Black+White Cropped Pants paired well with the Tulip Scarf, Navy Sweater, Prada Sunglasses & Nude Pumps. Her Gold Little Flower Studs are so Cute & Springy!
Kayla's 1st Outfit is her Gorgeous Royal Blue Prom Dress with Cascading Ruffles. The theme was Glam Hollywood, so she definitely did her part between the Curly Hair (love that Fun, Side Braid), Red Lips & Sparkly Silver Jewelry.
Kayla's 2nd Outfit  makes her ready for the Real World when she starts college, as she wears a Classic Black Pencil Skirt with a Feminine White Blouse & Black Pumps.
Shanna wore her Black+White Gingham Dress with a Jean Jacket over it, a Cognac Belt with Matching Oxfords, Fun Black & Yellow Bracelets, and a Beautiful Yellow Cross-body Bag.
Megan had a great week of Runway-inspired Looks but I chose her Loose but Girly Mint Dress with a Criss-Cross Back Detail paired with Fancy Turquoise Stilettos & a Fun Fringe Handbag.
Danielle wore a Pretty Magenta Sweater over a Polka Dot Button Up with Classic Black Pants, Cap-Toe Black & Beige Pumps & Stunning, Sparkly Silver Statement Necklace with Matching Earrings. The best part: this Gorgeous Outfit cost 28 bucks!
Natalie paired Blue Jeans with Stripes, Leopard & a Black Leather Jacket, all made better by a Bright & Pretty Yellow Scarf which is the Focal Point.
Lindsay's outfit technically is from last week but I just saw it & loved it. That Gray Sweater with different shades of Pink Flowers is too Pretty. She brought out those pinks even more with a Gorgeous Beaded Necklace & Beautiful Handbag.
Agnes wore this Simple Gray Sweater 5 Different Ways. My Favorite was how she made it professional with a Polka Dot Pencil Skirt & White Pumps. She made it fun also, by layering a Gold Pendant Necklace with a Pearl Necklace.
Janise dressed up a Simple Gray Tee with a Stunning Hi-lo Black Skirt with Lace inserts & a Fold-over Silver Clutch. She wore it with Nude Patent Leather Pumps.
Amy's 1st Outfit was the one she celebrated her Wonderful 23rd Birthday in. Her Pastel, Pink Floral Skinnies are too cute paired with that Sweater with Pearls on the shoulders.
Amy's 2nd Outfit was her Polka-Dot Chambray Dress which was a Birthday Gift, worn with a Stunning, Sea-inspired Necklace & many Fun Bracelets. Love it!
