It is a great time to get that J Crew eyelet sweater you have been eyeing. I love the lace, eyelet combo in a practical sweater. You can wear the navy with a pair of white jeans for spring and you look very Jackie O and ready to go. Get it in time for that Katie Holmes special that is coming out soon and you can channel your own inner Jackie O. She never wore white with black bottoms, she always reversed it so that she wore the light color on the bottom and the dark colors on top and looked very European chic. That is why I mentioned this combo would be very Jackie O.
If you want a fun Chanel ish jacket for spring. There are many great options this season since the Chanel style jacket has been in style for several seasons now and is not going away any time soon. One of my favorite finds this season has got to be this under $50 white Chanel ish jacket with the red and white stripes. You can find the white jacket here. Other options I like include a navy version from Veronica Beard, a white jacket from Veronica Beard, a multi color version from Juicy Couture, and a black jacket from Rebecca Taylor. Storets also has a cool one that may not be sold out, but check and see if it is still available. To find a Chanel boy bag for less check out options from The Real Real.
If there is ever a time to stock up for Spring. It is on the first day of Spring. Saks is doing their STOCK UP FOR SPRING sale and it has got to be one of my favorite sales because you shop and can get up to $700 back in a gift card to spend for later. So what are you thinking for spring? Do you need a new Saint Laurent bag? I am also loving the white dresses from IRO and Carven for spring.
There is nothing more fun that exploring scenic spots either on vacation or in your own city for some picture perfect locations where you can get a good photo. Some of the elements of getting a good photo should include the what you are wearing, the location where you can stage your photo, and the weather. When all of three of these elements are perfect and you have a willing photographer, you should be in line for the perfect shot. Recently, I happened to be at an event where I was all dressed up in my favorite midi skirt and lace top and as I looked around at my surroundings I realized I had a photo opportunity. I asked my business partner to take a photo for me and voila, it all happened in a moment.
Bikini season is right now all of the time in Mexico. If you are heading some place warm soon to get away from all of the snow and cold, get ready and shop bikinis and bathing suits. Some of my favorites include a fun triangle floral bikini from Becca, a palm print from Topshop, a halter one piece from Lands End, and a black studded bandeau from Missguided.
Loving all the espadrilles that are out there right now. If you already have a great pair of espadrilles from Chanel or Aquazzura and want a fun whimsical pair you can wear while out and about. I love the ones from SweatNSK.com that have the fun Karl Mouse on them or Naptime on them. They also have others like Vacation Mode and Le Weekend. So many fun options for spring and summer.
The best thing that ever happened was ruffled sweatshirts. I love the femininity of ruffles and add to a comfortable sweatshirt and you have the perfect must have top for any occasion. Some of my favorites includes one by Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini which has cutouts in the sleeves and ruffles in just the perfect spots. Stella McCartney’s ruffled sweatshirt with billowy sleeves is another of my favorites. That one you should wear with a great pair of white pants. Rosegal has one in pink with a ruffle going down the front that is also fun and quite affordable. Goen.J has a very elegant grey ruffled sweatshirt that would be perfect for a pencil skirt. Cedric Charlier has a ruffled sweatshirt with the ruffles quite elaborately centered in the middle of the top. If you are looking for an informal relaxed look, go for the one from Current/Elliot. No matter which one you choose, there is bound to be one that will work perfectly.
Sometimes you need to have a little fun while working. We were downtown at the Cooper Design Building this past week for work and I found this fun pom pom wall. Why not take a photo I thought and here it is my work day outfit. In this photo: Wearing AG Jeans, Pom Pom Sneakers,Joie black top, and Linda Farrow sunnies.
If you are looking for the perfect straw bag for the beach or picnics this summer look now further than this great straw bag with the pom poms from Misa. I love this bag because it has festive colors and its under $100. Great find for everything from beach picnics to beach parties. I also love the pom pom bag from Antik Batik and Kayu.
There are so many pretty options for summer dresses and for those of you pining for summer right now, get ready, it’s coming and you will want to be ready when it hits you. One of my most favorite dresses is the Rails moon and stars dress. It is the prettiest, easiest and drapiest dress around. The dress is a short sleeve mini length notch color dress with a moon and star all over print. So easy to wear – you can wear it with your favorite Alexander McQueen Platform sneakers or your perfect Christian Louboutin pyramid stud platform sandals. However you wear it, you will be reaching for this piece all summer long.
A great summer vacation or summer wedding dress is this Chloe smocked silk dress. The lovely mustard gold color with its long sleeves will complement any pair of stacked heel shoes you have in your closet so you can be comfortable and pretty all day into night. I love this feminine dress because it is a timeless piece that you can invest in and wear for years to come.
