OOTD: Trends

I've never really thought about how trends influence my style until I was getting dressed yesterday. I had recently gone shopping and was looking through my new clothes and realized there were a lot of trendy pieces.
What I'm wearing: Tank- H&M, Jeans- H&M, Bra- Target, Shoes- Converse, Necklace- Unknown

Boyfriend jeans have never been a good look for me, but I had been on the hunt for a slouchy distressed pair of grey jeans. I decided to try out girlfriend jeans, and I found these at H&M. They fit perfectly, they're really comfortable and they're just the right amount of distressed.

Another trend I decided to give a try is a sheer top, because "ethereal" is huge this year. I've actually had this top for a while and this bra that I'm wearing under it, but it's the first time I decided to pair them together. The girlfriend jeans were high enough they covered my stomach, and the back of this bra is really cute. You can find a similar top here and a similar bra here and I actually like this one better because it offers more coverage in the front, so I'll probably be purchasing that one.
On my Face: Sonja Kashuk tinted moisturizer in Fair, The Balm Blush in frat boy, The Balm Highlighter in Mary Lou Manizer, Covergirl The Roses Palette, Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Birthday Girl, Nyx Liquid eyeliner in Black, Makeup Forever Smokey Extravagant mascara, Nyx Turquoise Eyeliner, Colourpop Lippie Stix in Wifey

When I sat down to do my makeup I decided to try out ombre lipstick. Fun lip colors are always in for spring. And this is one I hadn't yet been brave enough to try. But I couldn't see why not, since I've worn every color from blue to black to orange and purple. So I took a Nyx turquoise eyeliner I never use, cleaned it off and lined my lips with it. Then I blurred it out a bit with a qtip and went over it with Colourpop's Wifey Lippie Stix. I really liked it, but I think next time I'll use less of the liner so more of the pink shows up.

And Finally for my hair I decided to do a dutch braid into a ponytail so it would better show off my newest earring. It's an arrow, and I'm so in love with it. I picked it up at a random kiosk in the mall so I can't link it, but I'm sure you can easily find similar.

What are your favorite trends for this spring? Anything you think I should try?
