in By Anika,Friend Friday,spring is in my heart

 

Hi Sweethearts!

This weeks Friend Friday is all about our top five trends for spring that we are exited by. As some of you may know I have been trying to manifest spring in Oslo for a few weeks in my series “Spring is in my heart” where I have been sewing dresses inspired by my fave spring trends.  I am happy to report that it worked, spring has found Oslo, and I couldn`t be happier about it. I have dug out my jean jacket and my mandatory bonkers glasses and am spending every moment I can outside in the sun.

I hope you don`t mind a recap of my fave dresses I made inspired by my top five spring trends.

Happy Friday to you all!

I’m really excited for nudes. It’s something I have never really tried. I think it’s looks so sexy, and subtle. I mean a red dress is in your face sexy, but a nude dress is down right seductive! You totally got me going gaga for nude!

Anika, I’m glad that Spring is finally there!!! We been having extremely hot weather here in South Florida!
Some of my favorite Spring trends are: full skirts, flower dresses, capris and skirts, anything similar to the Anna Sui Spring 2011 Collection, bright colors and sandals, lots of sandals!

Dearest Anika, I loved your recap! My favorite is animal prints! Was this as much fun for you as it was for us? It was great to see what your talent and creativity would create for each trend. You absolutely rock, woman! Those wonderful glasses, that animal print scarf and those shoes in the last outfit post are three items I wish I had in my wardrobe! How gorgeous! Love your style and love your blog–that’s why I keep coming back! :)

Bella, my sweetheart, I adore you. I just wanted to say that. Thank you for your lovely comment, I did have fun with the series ;D . The glasses and scarf I am sure you can get at H&M, and as for the shoes, I cut out the front of them because I couldn`t be bothered to walk them in LOL. Oh, sorry for not emailing you yet, will do so asap. Love, Anika
