Stay On-Trend On Break this Spring with Henry & Pearl
Guest Post by Jill Myrick of Suburban Mom in Jeans, SMIJ by Jill
I can’t believe it’s almost April! Georgia is bursting with the first bright green leaves, azaleas, dogwoods, daffodils – and pollen. If you can stop sneezing long enough, you’ll enjoy those very few weeks where it seems everything is springing up (pun intended). That includes Spring Fashion, of course! And, we are so fortunate to have all those Spring Trends right at our fingertips at Henry & Pearl in Milton, GA.
I peeked into to Henry & Pearl last week to grab those jeans I’d blogged about during my last guest post. Remember those? I couldn’t stop thinking about them so… the rest is history. This time I was overwhelmed with all the cute things they have that top this Spring’s must-have list. I thought it might be fun to highlight 4 of the top fashion trends for Spring and then share a few pictures of what they have in store right now.
Let’s get started!
I popped in on Good Friday and my little “assistant” was out of school so we did a Take-Your-Daughter-To-Work Day and went to play in all the beautiful clothes and accessories. It is very easy to talk your kids into visiting Henry & Pearl because very often Henry himself is there. He was not there this particular day so I have an active promise to stop back by and love on him a bit. Either way, armed with an iPad and a bag of Cheese-Its, Reese enjoyed some time on H&P’s patio and helped me narrow down my favorites in each of our 4 categories.
Trend #1: Stripes
Stripes are huge this Spring and Henry & Pearl is loaded up! Stripes are such a great look against the bright blue skies and spring colors all around us. They look great on the beach and with all forms of denim (more on denim later…). My personal faves are stripes in shades of blue and they have them – wide stripes, thin stripes, horizontal, vertical. The point this season is to wear stripes and get creative with them.
Trend #2: Red, White & Blue
I love red, white and blue in the Spring and Summer always and so happy to see if out in full force this season. It’s an election year, we have Memorial Day and the 4th coming up and it seems designers are enjoying the moment. There are lots of great choices for men and women currently in store. My favorites are this super cute star tank and the great selection of bathing suits for men. I love anything with the flag, anchors and stars and they’ve got it now.
Trend #3: Tie-Dye
Isn’t it fun that tie-dye is in style? I love the casual feel of tie-dye for tops and dresses. They look great with blue jeans, white jeans, and shorts and just blend in at the pool and beach. My favorites are this MUMU tunic and this cute blue and while tunic tank. I believe they would be on a weekly rotation for me all summer long.
Trend #4: Denim Everything
Best for last!
Denim is head to toe this year – even shoes are showing up in denim. And, you can wear denim tops with jeans, denim dresses with denim shoes, seriously, denim everything goes. I like to mix shades of denim. I love white denim on the bottom and blue denim on top. Henry & Pearl have these great cut-offs that you could top with a denim shirt and Havaianas, now also in store, for a great all-American summer look. This could be my summer uniform, for sure. They have great denim pieces and I’m guessing they’ll go fast.
I had so much fun playing dress-up at Henry & Pearl with all the Spring Trends. Carve out some time to play and head on in there. The team is great about pulling pieces and helping you as much as you want. They love to have you try on the looks and will set you up for Spring. If you’ve got a trip planned or just like to hang out at the local pool or lakes, you’ll also find great pieces to take along as you make summer memories. I know you’ll enjoy your visit as much as I did.
