Maddie Poteat Headshot

I can’t tell you how relieved I am to see bright colors, dresses and beautiful wavy hair again… Happy Spring, everyone! 
If you have been following along on social media, you know we LOVE partnering with local businesses.  Last month we partnered with two local gyms to bring you easy hair and makeup looks you can wear from work to the gym and back (read that post here if you missed it!).  This month we decided to focus on a topic I’m sure most of you will be excited about – Spring Hair and Fashion Trends!
When we were thinking about who we wanted to partner with this month we knew it had to be someone who has a pulse on the upcoming fashion trends we will be seeing this Spring.  Bliss Boutique quickly came to mind and after reaching out to Valerie, owner/manager, we knew we had a solid collaboration in the works.
I first stepped foot in Bliss Boutique years ago when I was looking for a dress for my high school prom…  Needless to say, I have been a fan of Bliss Boutique for many years!  Since moving to Rockbrook Village, Bliss Boutique has cemented themselves as a go-to store for both on-trend looks and the classic styles we all love.  Read below to see the outfits chosen for the shoot and how we paired them with the makeup and hair trends our stylists are seeing this season!
2019 Spring Hair Trends

2019 Spring Makeup Trends

This season we are seeing a mix of bold looks and more toned-down natural looks.  Glitter seems to be everywhere this Spring but our makeup artists chose to stick to the subtle, natural, no-makeup look for our models.  Paired with a lightly stained pink lip (in different shades), the model’s makeup helped bring a refreshed and energized look to the shoot.

Go-To Makeup Looks:

  • Lightly stained pink lip
  • Subtle smoky eye
  • No-makeup look – Natural, soft makeup in a muted color palette
  • Glitter eye shadow (not shown here)

2019 Spring Hair Trends

For the hair, our stylists honed in on easy at-home styles perfect for any occasion this season.  While some of the current Spring trends are more dramatic than the styles we went for this shoot, these hair styles will still turn heads!  One of our stylists, Mikaela Kellog, added a side, french braid to her model.  This look would be perfect for anything outside as it will keep those pesky fly-aways at bay while still giving you a pretty, feminine and polished look.

The other two styles are similar as they both include loose beach waves.  Our stylists achieved these looks by using the Garbo’s Stay Spritz and Shine for both hold and protection.  (Need extra help with those beach waves?  Check out our how-to video we made here!).  While Mikaela kept her model’s hair completely down, Jessica styled her model’s hair by sectioning off the top part and securing it in a messy-ish bun.  I personally love this look as it keeps my hair out of my face while still allowing me to wear part of it down.

2019 Spring Fashion Trends

Now for the fashion!  When partnering with Bliss Boutique we wanted to emphasize not only the upcoming trends but the wearability of these trends.  If you have ever skimmed through a fashion magazine you know that some styles can be really hard to pull off.  I’ve seen bright, bold colors on models that I would never be able to wear… Or certain types of clothing that my lifestyle just doesn’t call for (example: ball gowns and stilettos).  The styles that Bliss Boutique offers are both trendy and wearable – the perfect combo!

In addition to the wearability of these pieces, Valerie at Bliss Boutique wanted to emphasize Femininity.  You will see both florals and lace in any form this Spring so she really wanted the outfits to showcase those trends.  She also loves the mix of blues, beiges and dusty rose colors this Spring.  They truly highlight the Femininity feel we were aiming for. 
As with every Spring wardrobe, dresses once again are an important piece to fill the closet.  Valerie wanted to showcase a fun and flirty Spring dress during the shoot.  In addition, tank tops are a must for the warm weather days ahead so she chose a tank top with a prominent floral print and loose, feminine flow.  By adding the loose cardigan you can take this look from those hot days to those chilly Spring nights. 
Lastly, the off-the-shoulder trend is still in style and we are still loving it!  Valerie chose an off-the-shoulder top that incorporated a pretty, feminine lace in the dusty blush color we love.
