Yesterday was the first official day of spring and that means it's time to bust out your whites! I don't subscribe to many fashion "rules" other than fit being of the utmost importance, but I don't tend to rock true white until the spring season has begun. There is something so fresh and springy about a look filled with crisp white pieces and white eyelet, in particular, has always been a springtime favorite of mine!
Eyelet just so happens to be a major trend this season. It graced the spring runways of several designers, but the eyelet pieces that Valentino showed really caught my eye. While I probably won't be rockin' Valentino in my every day life, luckily there is no shortage of darling eyelet pieces from me to choose from out there in the shoposphere.
Eyelet is perfect for a spring date night. My hubs is a real sucker for a flirty eyelet frock. You would think that a body con dress and stilettos would do it for all men. Not the case. My fella likes his lady lookin' sweet! If I rock a full skirted eyelet dress with sweet little ballet flats, he's putty in my hands. Go figure! Did I mention that he doesn't really like heels at all? He thinks stilettos are ridiculous and don't get him started on wedges. He's a numbers guy, thus practicality reigns supreme and high heels just aren't practical in his book. Do you think I'm getting rid of my heels anytime soon? NOPE! But I will rock flats for him, with eyelet especially because it's such a cute look. Lucky for him, I'm into it. Haha!

If your significant other digs an edgier look, go for an eyelet blazer and leather skinnies or an eyelet tank or tee paired with colored denim and ankle strap sandals! Don't forget to pile on the baubles. It doesn't get much edgier than an armful of studs and spikes. Just sayin'. No matter which eyelet piece you set your sights on, it's sure to make your honey swoon this spring!
