Mood board: Warming trend

Krystal Faircloth, who blogs about fashion at, shares her springtime inspirations.

1. Pattern play

Swim cover-ups are becoming just as important stylewise as your actual swimwear. Look for them this season in fun hues and abstract patterns. This one is from Coral Reef Swim.

2. You rock

Ever want to try out a statement earring or necklace for a week or two? That’s the idea behind Every month, get a new set of handpicked jewels. Once you wear them, keep what you want or return for a new box.

3. Arm party

Watches were recently going through a heavy metal phase, but I’m looking forward to lighter, more feminine styles like this Daniel Wellington. A leather band goes perfectly with wood bead bracelets by Dotted Tusk, created by Baton Rouge native Caroline Gladney.

4. Natural elements

GAIA for Women is a brand I recently discovered that creates beautiful handmade pouches and handbags out of vintage or reclaimed fabrics. It also helps refugee women find empowerment through employment. Learn more at

5. Fringe fanatic

Fringe will be on everything this festival season. With Louisiana having so many festivals, we can wear fringed styles often! A versatile fringed bag will get the most use. Wear with a flowy top or gladiator sandals.

6. Sole saver

Spring weather means tons of new sandals. With Sole Serum you can skip all the pain of breaking in your new styles. It helps you stay on your feet in heels all day long.
