Cutouts are possibly one of the biggest trends for spring this year and when done right, it’s a fun and flattering way to step out of your comfort zone.  I initially loved this dress for the color (obviously), but when I tried it on it was such a classic and flattering fit that I decided to give the trend a try.

You may have noticed a lot of Hunter Bell on the site recently (last seen here).  Not only am I a huge fan of the brand, but Hunter is a dear friend who made the move from NYC to Houston within a few months of us.  We are so excited to have such a talented designer representing Houston that 9 local bloggers all teamed up today to share our favorite Hunter Bell styles.  You can follow the #HoustonLoveHB hashtag or check out everyone’s blogs here:
