Spring is finally here! Well…at least the calendar says so. Montana weather has other plans. We had a couple of really nice days here in Missoula, so we got excited and decided to have our spring shoot. Then, in true Montana fashion, it SNOWED the day of our spring photoshoot. But, the show (photoshoot?) must go on, and we moved the shoot to under a big tent and brought some flowers to make it more spring-y. Hopefully the weather around Missoula (and wherever you are) is warming up soon so we can break out cute spring outfits! Happy spring from us here at Trendsetters at the U!
Oh my gosh, everyone. Spring is finally here! Spring is my absolute favorite season, flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and I am thriving. It’s so nice to be able to sit outside and soak up some sun after a long winter (unless, of course, it decides to snow, which it may or may not have done while we took these photos).
My style is really biased toward spring. I love pastels, light denim, and flowy tops. I am all about floral prints in almost everything I wear. This outfit is a favorite, it’s carefree, comfy, and I can wear it anywhere. The top is from American Eagle, and I love the off the shoulder style, it feels very bohemian. I got the jeans from H&M, and they are high waisted, which I think is so cute! This hat is also a favorite, I got it downtown last fall. I love hats as accessories, especially these wide brimmed styles.
I hope everyone has a lovely spring! Enjoy the sunshine, we all deserve it after a long winter!
Spring in Montana means sun dresses, pastels, and the occasional parka! You never know what the weather will be like. You’ll be freezing in the morning and then roasting by lunch time. My tips to spring styles in this temperature confusion are layers (duh) and dresses that feel like blankets… like this little number from Gap! I bought this dress a few weeks ago when Gap was having their additional off clearance sale for a major steal of a deal! Funny enough, it’s actually a size large and before I tie the waist it looks like a cloak! I have to say though, I love the slouchy look of this mauve dress and I’m glad they only had a large for me to choose. This will be a good one to wear on long road trips, lunch dates, and weekend outings this spring. I paired it with my Blowfish booties from Olive + Iron and my trusty American Eagle denim jacket I’ve had since high school. No doubt this isn’t the first time you’ve seen these pieces!
At last, spring has finally sprung! (kind of) And with that, so has my love for pastels. I’m so excited that this was my first photoshoot with the Trendsetters because to me this season means fresh starts, new beginnings, and rebirth; which is what I attempted to represent with my outfit. Everyone who knows me knows I like a good beret with every outfit, that’s why I picked this cream felted wool beret I got years ago off of Amazon. I’ve also been obsessed with textures these days, so I chose to wear this white ribbed mock turtleneck from H&M with ruffles on the sleeves and neck. For my feet I picked a pair of glossy oxfords I got at Goodwill, I get mesmerized at how shiny they are sometimes… My love for textures is obvious once again by the light blue satin dress I got recently from Laura’s Boutique. It is so comfortable, soft, and effortlessly cute. I have noticed that wearing an outfit with a shiny texture makes me look like I tried twice as hard as I actually did. Happy spring babes!
Another spring season is here.
I am so happy that I get another chance to enjoy spring in the U.S., especially in Missoula, MT.
I have been able to experience all four seasons in Missoula, MT, and spring can be my favorite season after Fall. These two seasons just change people’s eyes with their beautiful colors. Thank God for all His creation.
Another thing that makes me happy is another photoshoot with Trendsetters for spring style.
This photoshoot was so fun for me. Every time I have a photoshoot, it just immediately brings happiness for me. I am so happy that I could spend more time with the Trendsetters. I am an international student at the University and joining this group means a lot to me; that I can spend my time with them and make more friends.
For my outfits in spring, I always wear stockings with short dresses or skirts and long sleeves.
For this photoshoot I wore my beautiful dress with flowers which shows the blossom of flowers in springtime. I got this dress from H&M and my cute blouse I got from T. J. Maxx and it was just $3… Hahaha! I got my black boots that I always wear for spring from Seattle. I forgot the name of the store that I bought them from but, I just got them in January 2018 when I spent my New Year’s Eve there. I really like this style for spring because it shows how’s beautiful spring is.
Hope you guys enjoy the this spring season…
This shoot made me so excited for spring! The sun is finally coming out and I couldn’t be more excited about it! What a great excuse to bring out the sundresses again!
This dress is one of my favorites. The color is easy to pair with, the length is perfect, and it just makes me feel great! The dress is from Forever 21 but was handed down to me in high school my freshman year from a senior I looked up to a lot. Clothes given to me by someone important in my life are always my favorite to wear. The tights are from H&M. They’re a go-to pair for me. The tan color isn’t too bold and doesn’t distract from the rest of the outfit. Plus, they’re kind of thick and good for the cold spring days I’m learning Missoula is full of. These boots I found at a Plato’s Closet in Portland, where I’m from. The arches are fit to someone else’s foot, but that’s the beauty of second-hand shopping! You get to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes! The chokers I’m wearing were a Christmas gift from my sister this past December, and she bought them at a Francesca’s, in Portland as well. My first Trendsetters shoot was great, and I couldn’t imagine a better shoot to start with!
Spring is by far my favorite time of the year: the weather is perfect, flowers are blooming, and in my opinion it’s the best season to dress for! For this shoot I wore a denim jacket (such a staple piece for the springtime), fun gingham paper bag shorts from Forever 21, and a simple white tee from H&M. With this outfit I would’ve usually gone for a colored sandal and no tights but it was snowing in Missoula, so I had to stay warm somehow! Now that the snow is finally gone I’m excited to finally wear all the clothes I haven’t been able to touch for the past couple months, spring has sprung and I’m all here for it!
