No More Balloon Launches In the recent Wedding issue, a writer noted a trend of celebratory balloon launches at weddings. Balloon releases are nothing more than a wind-born distribution of litter, not an appropriate way to celebrate a marriage or commemorate cancer victims and survivors...

Plenty Of Blame In Flint Many opinions have been voiced about the Flint water crisis; all have left many questions unasked, such as: Lead is the culprit, and a there is a ban on lead in paint, as well as one on lead in new plumbing materials. There are still many service connecting pipes made out of lead in service. Why? Have any been installed despite the ban?

Stop Balloon Releases I was appalled by the column on the wedding traditions article that suggested making new traditions like releasing balloons at the conclusion of the ceremony! I am the president of AFFEW (A Few Friends for the Environment of the World) in Ludington, and we clean beaches four times a year....

Roosevelt Had It Right 202 years ago the British Royal Navy bombarded Fort McHenry during the War Of 1812. While being held captive aboard the HMS Surprise, Francis Scott Key composed the immortal “Star Spangled Banner” poem. 202 years later I ask, “Oh, say can you see” one of the most appallingly dishonest presidential election cycles since the Adams/Jefferson election of 1800...

Avoid Urban Sprawl In Petoskey I urge Resort Township, the City of Petoskey and Emmet County to dissuade Bay Harbor’s proposal to add new business and residential development along U.S. 31 near the main entrance to Bay Harbor...

Color Your Closet!

VIBRANT JEANS

Colorful denim is an extension of the color-blocking trend that cannot be overlooked. For those who are going to splurge on only one item this spring make it a pair of colorful skinny jeans.

Even in brilliant hues, the tailored denim is still low-key. And don’t be afraid of going bold.

“I couldn’t be more excited about colored jeans being back in style,” said MacKenzie Bickel of Traverse City, who just purchased a pair of green tailored denim jeans.

“Without a doubt, they’ll be a staple piece for my color-blocking styles or just a statement for the simplest of outfits.”

Edgy Prints & Shapes

Take the bright trend a step further with colorful yet edgy prints. These fabrics encompass stylish prints including chevrons, florals, geometric shapes, and futuristic patterns.

“Colored prints are flooding the fashion world right now,” said Bickel. “Whether it be a hand bag, dress, or an eye catching top, the print allows me to show a little personality in my everyday wear.”

Look for feminine dresses in this season’s high-low hemline silhouette which has a high cut front hemline with a lower cut back hemline. The lightweight look is whimsical and flattering on most body types.

PASTEL HUES

Feeling more beautiful than bold? This spring’s sweet pastels are shades of sky, sorbets, and mint.

Their feminine appeal is low key and comes in light weight fabrics, perfect for the day or night.

Pastel needn’t mean boring. Soft shades and creamy neutrals feel flirty when paired with wispy fabrics and pleats. Looking chic never felt so good!
