Spring Fashion Preview

Jill and I recently traveled to Las Vegas for WWD MAGIC. If you are not familiar with Magic, it is a fashion market where buyers get to go and place orders, discover new brands and make connections with other boutique owners throughout the world. We spent some time at WWIN, PROJECT, POOL, and MAGIC. All these shows had a variety of vendors and products. From tops, dress and jeans, to shoes, bags and hats. The main focus of our trip was brand discovery. We have been going to Northstar Fashion market for three years now and we wanted to find some new brands to bring to our customers. 

Spring will be here soon and with the change in seasons bring bold fashion trends. We are seeing classic prints and colors with bold accents. Camo is a huge print for Spring. You can pair your favorite camo shirt with white bottoms for a vibrant Spring piece.

Snakeskin and cheetah print are huge for Spring and Summer. Do not be afraid to let these bold prints sneak into your wardrobe. Start with a little accent on your shirt and then transition to a full print dress. Trust me, you won't regret being bold this Spring.
I know you have a favorite graphic tee. You probably pair it with comfortable jean shorts or your favorite leggings. This season try pairing your favorite graphic tees with either a trouser pant or a pencil skirt. This will bring your favorite tee back to life and create the perfect combination of classy and casual. This look can be worn to work, a night out with friends, running errands. The options are endless for this bold Spring style. Transition into Summer pairing with trouser shorts and peep-toe booties. 

Tropical prints are here and I am loving it. Bold florals are not just for your beach vacations anymore. Bring them into your wardrobe on the regular. Vibrant daytime dress and fun blouses will bring a pop of color into Spring. Seen in the photo to the left, you can pair a bold tropical blouse with a solid skirt to create the perfect business casual look.

Other noted trends that we saw throughout market:
- Jumpsuits
- Wooden button details
- Vertical stripes in various widths
- Sandals with sneaker bottoms
- Mixing casual and dressy pieces today
- Pattern mixing
- Bold prints and patterns

This season, do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Let your style show off your personality!

Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis Have you ever read a book and just knew it was speaking directly to you? Well... Girl, Stop Apologizing was this book. I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy from the publisher and be able to participate in her launch team. After reading Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis last Summer, I continued to explore Rachel and her mission. She is an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, blogger, and mom. She has done a lot in her career while raising a family and in seeing her achieve goals, I know it is possible to keep pushing myself to be at the level I want to be at with Chic Avenue Boutique. We are almost 4 years in and we have found our Tribe.  My favorite quote from Girl, Stop Apologizing is "The goal isn't to have a balanced life, the goal is to have a centered life." Now stop and think about that.  I always see questions posted on social media on how to do it all. How do you work full time? How

Welcome to Mama Chic and her interns

Welcome to the Mama Chic and her interns blog. This blog will give a behind the scenes look into the world of being a #boutiqueboss while also being a #momboss. A little bit about me, Krista Vanderveren. I am co-owner of Chic Avenue Boutique with my sister Jillian. We started Chic Avenue in July of 2015. Chic Avenue launched the week I found out I was pregnant for the second time. Fast forward a few weeks and we were slowly growing out boutique. I found out I was expecting twins. Yes, twins! So not only did I have a new business and a newly two-year-old. I was going to be adding two more babies to our family. The last 3 1/2 years have been a whirlwind of boutique business, raising babies and building our empire. Through it all I have had amazing support from my husband Brad, my sister Jillian, our parents Scott & Pam and our entire Chic Community. Without all of you we would not be here today. Through this blog, I plan to share the adventures of owning a small business owner and

6 Reasons to join a MoM club

Research, explore and get invoived in your community of moms!* From the moment you heard the words “You are having twins (triplets, quads)!” You instantly joined this secret society of mothers of multiples.
