After my trip to Payless, I paid a visit to Forever 21 to see what was new for spring. The clothes were organized to highlight some of spring's key trends, including tribal, florals, and nautical. You couldn't miss the eye-catching colors and bold prints, from geometric to animal print, in the tribal section; silhouettes included ponchos, linen shorts and daring crop-tops. Next to that, ditsy print dresses and bohemian blouses in pretty pastels created a feminine, garden party oasis. The nautical/Americana section was marked by stripes in navy, white and red, plus plaid, gingham and lightwash denim. I bought a navy and red sweater (which you'll see after the jump) and I'll probably go back for more. Other highlights included a day-to-night Chanel inspired jacket, lightweight chunky knits in spring colors like nude and pink, and lots of maxi-skirts, which honestly aren't my style but I can see lots of fashion bloggers scooping them up! I purchased a tan trench (see me wearing it on Facebook) to test-drive this classic look which has been called a wardrobe essential by just about every style expert on the planet. All I can say is, what took me so long?
