Spring is in the air, but many of us aren’t feeling that same “spring” in our step as we usually do at this time of year … what with the state of the economy and beyond. That’s why fashion is doing its best to brighten our days and lighten our life. This season in fashion is all about bright cheerful colors, cozy comforting fabrications, and easy breezy style. If your budget only allows for a few essential items this spring, don’t forget some of our “must have” suggestions. We’ve picked out pieces (casual items, work or dressy attire, and a wildcard selection) for Mom, Dad, and kids that are versatile and fabulously fashion forward.
