Spring 2012 Fashion

May 04, 2012

Pack up your dark, heavy clothes because spring has sprung and this season is all about bright colors. Designer high top sneakers, pastel colored jeans, polka dots, flouncy florals (especially with a little ruffle) all take center stage this season. Also on deck for fashion, you can find classic preppy looks with a nautical sailor flair. Always in style for spring: strappy sandals.

Stripes and flowers

Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren embody the preppy look. This spring, Tommy loves stripes and florals and isn’t afraid to mix and match as long as they’re in the same color family. When putting together a nautical look, though, don’t go overboard. Too many sailor accents and you may end up looking like you work on a ship when your goal is to look like you belong lounging on one!

Colored Jeans

Pink is the new blue when it comes to jeans this season. Express (pictured above) has a great line, but check your favorite jeans designer and see what they have in store for you. Almost every fresh designer who does jeans well has come out with fun colors for skinny jeans this spring.

High Top Sneakers

High Tops aren’t just for sporty guys and girls. Now Adidas, Yves Saint Laurent and even UGG Australia are getting in on the high top scene with high fashion high tops. Think Adidas is a sporty brand? Try playing basketball in their high-heeled high tops! Yves Saint Laurent’s fancy high tops come with a hefty price tag – around $700. UGG’s new high tops are due out mid-summer. For more accessible high school high tops, Converse All Stars are always fun, come in all the colors of the rainbow… and then some… and retail around the $35 mark.

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
