Yesterday I went to Forever 21 to return this oversized denim jacket I had purchased online. It looked so cool on the model, but on me it looked like something my school bus driver might have worn in the '80s. Trends, amiright.
While we're on the subject of returns, you may not have known that Forever 21 recently updated their return policy! The new return policy offers customers a full refund to their original form of payment within 30 days from the date of purchase. If I'm not mistaken, previously you had 21 days and would receive store credit.
So back to the story at hand: I was able to return my online purchase and I picked out a new denim jacket (here) that's still oversized - which is the look right now - but a bit shorter and better for my frame. I also scooped up a leopard coat for $12.99 plus an extra 30% off. Thank you Daily Style Finds for making me suddenly crave more leopard!
Ok, so here's what to look for this spring: As I touched on briefly in this post, sweet & sporty looks are huge - think pastel hoodies, sweatpants, crop tops, bodysuits, and denim.
Bomber jackets are still huge as are fit and flare skirts but now they're being styled with a modern rockabilly vibe (thank you 3.1 Phillip Lim for that).
I also saw lots of peasant tops and floral prints for that boho life, as well as camo print jackets (I own and love this one) and patchwork denim for that squad life.
If you make a trip to Forever 21, I recommend checking out the accessories and lightweight jackets for spring, as well as these must-have mules...yellow is my favorite! They come in 5 great colors and for just $24.90, these need to be in your closet.

Faux suede ankle strap heels are comfy and chic - love the block heel. Just $24.90.
This is a rainbow fur clutch, in case you were wondering. Kinda mesmerizing.
Love this feminine take on the army jacket. Reminds me of this jacket that's $150 (but part of the Shopbop.com buy more, save more sale!)
Budget Babe Spring Must-Have: These mules! Just $24.90, come in 5 colors.
Sporty femme: Try a satin bomber with jeans and a plain white t-shirt for a day-to-night look.
