Living Neon

I spent the first 14 days of 2019 in a paperwork daze. It's time to reemerge and knock out 2019 in style! I think we should all just go for it this year. Buy the snakeskin boots. Wear the neon beanie. Don't apologize for being you. Who's with me? See more of my thoughts on this here >>

Gingham

Spring is officially here! One thing that has made a major comeback
is the classic pattern gingham. Whether it's small and understated or oversized and a statement piece, throw in a splash of gingham this
spring for an updated look.

Spring Trends to Try, pt. 4

We've covered a lot of ground in four days. You should be on your way to being the best dressed guest at the summer weddings, baby showers, and bridal showers that are on the horizon. 
However, I saved my favorite two looks for spring for last! 
Getting laced-up for spring is a must! It was shown by Rebecca Minkoff in this look and this look, and is currently available in nearly every store. It's an easy trend to find on effortlessly cool dresses and can be worn day or night. While I'm also loving laced-up sandals, I would pair a simple shoe with a dress of this trend and save the laced-up shoe for a more simple dress. Only one piece needs to be laced... you get the picture.
This next one is a shocker.... pretty pastels for spring? Groundbreaking. 
But there's something so lovely about a pastel frock for a spring event. As shown by pretty much every designer (namely Oscar de la Renta, Tory Burch, and Altuzarra), it's a sure win.

Spring Trends to Try, pt. 3

Nobody did the next two trends for spring better than Caroline Herrera: pleats & sheer details. Her entire collection is complete perfection with pretty pastels, feminine details, and elegant separates all with a modest touch of sheerness. Pretty pleats were not only shown by Herrera but also by TibiVictoria Beckham, and Monique Lhiullier just to name a few. 
When it comes to something a little see-through, the likes of Delpozo, Christian Dior and Temperley all showed the trend. The sheerness we speak of is strategically placed, elegant and still leaves plenty to the imagination. Again, let's use Caroline Herrera as a reference point with this look....

Spring Trends to Try, pt. 2

Two additional trends that should be added to your must-try list are
the shirtdress and the drop-waist
Aquilano Rimondi and Celine both showed a modern take on the shirtdress for spring. It's an easy day-time look (translation: perfect for a baby or bridal shower, luncheon, etc). Blogger Blair Eadie styled this look with a classic blue & white stripe version of the shirtdress. A lot of the ones we're seeing right now have this faux tie-waist detail that makes it ultra flattering. Add one to your collection pronto. 
Another silhouette I've been seeing pop up amidst my spring shopping is the drop-waist. While it's not an easy look to pull off, I love how Carolina Herrera executed it in a way that is still flattering by showing the natural waist. Delpozo also bought into the trend by showing it in a more avant-garde way.

Spring Trends to Try, pt. 1

With spring upon us, it's time to talk trends. 
Let's be serious, the baby shower invitations and save the dates are coming in daily. Whatever the occasion, you're going to need new spring pieces for the impending events. Over the next few days, we're going to cover the highlights, the pieces you need to add to your collection, the looks that will have you on-trend (and most likely on-budget). 
One thing you will see me in (on repeat) is something off the shoulder. I think it's such a flattering look on most every body type. Designers like Sonia Rykiel and Edun showed this in bright pops of color. Buy into this one. You won't regret it.

I am also loving the idea of separates. It can be both dressy and casual depending on the pieces. Carolina Herrera showed this fanciful flirty number that would be perfect for a wedding or cocktail party while Banana Republic showed more casual options like this punchy orange look and this chambray top & skirt
See below for some of my on-trend top picks.
