I mentioned in my post last week that floral print is one of the biggest trends that will be spotted on Fashionistas in the spring and summer months. This week's Fashionista is already exhibiting that trend. I noticed her off the shoulder blouse (from H&M) and loved the pretty print and flirty feel. I also loved how Demetria chose to take the ubiquitous denim short trend and make it her own by wearing a pair of slightly destroyed high waist denim shorts. This gives her outfit a more tailored and classic look. She accessorized simply with a few silver bangles, a bold Tory Burch tote and a pair of awesome gladiator sandals. Demetria was on her way to class so we were able to speak only briefly about Kourtney Kardashian, a trend Demetria hopes to see this spring and her advice to aspiring Fashionistas.

How To: The first step to achieving Demetria's flirty, spring look is to rock a pair of denim high-waist shorts. One of my favorite pairs is available at Topshop. These shorts fit and wear well and the studs give them a unique look. Demetria's bright colored bag is also extremely trendy. Bold bags range in price making them an accessible trend this season. The Ella tote by Tory Burch is an amazing piece, I absolutely love the color selection. The last aspect of Demetria's outfit that is crucial to any Fashionista's wardrobe are her gladiator sandals. This is a reoccurring trend and every spring and summer I see Fashionistas everywhere incorporating the Grecian-inspired footwear into their outfits. I am obsessed with this pair of Dolce Vita gladiator sandals, available at Free People. The simple leather and small studs make these a versatile pair of sandals. If you want to take this trend to the next level, check out these Ecote knee high gladiator sandals, available at Urban Outfitters. These sandals put a unique spin on the gladiator trend.
