It's time to bust out the spring accessories. From a fresh pair of white sneakers (make sure they're spring ready with an espadrille sole) to the newest natural accents, it's time to lighten up. The key words to note are raffia, wood, acrylic, and rattan. Shop my picks below and head to my Spring Edit list on Amazon for more!
Update your beach (or pool) look with a fresh pair of slides. Again, think about this season's key elements... raffia & rattan.
If you're more of a sneaker girl, as we mentioned earlier, grab a fresh pair of white sneakers with a springy espadrille sole. It's the best of both worlds!
Rattan is going to be the hero of spring. Whether you incorporate it with a handbag, shoes, or earrings, grab a piece of rattan. It's a must!
To round it out, complete your look with a pair of acrylic hoops, a fun fringy tote, or a fun ring with a coastal-inspired ring (coastal shells and pearls are going to be what we're calling a "micro trend"). Shop my picks below:
What are your favorite spring trends?? Whether you're leaning more towards bright neons or something more natural, there truly is something for everybody this season! Happy Spring!

When Kathleen of Carrie Bradshaw Lied posted this look,
it made me stop in my tracks. A red cape-like piece that's casual enough to wear with jeans but could also be a real statement at a cocktail party when paired with something dressier. Gasp. I love it!

I don't know if it's because Valentine's Day is this week or what,
but I'm majorly color crushing on blush pink... especially blush pink coats Could there be anything better to brighten the cold winter days?

There's just something about the days and weeks leading up
to Valentine's Day... I become the biggest sucker for all things pink and red. The two in combination makes an even more festive look. Try to not overdo it and, but pink and red together can actually be quite chic.

Ok, so let's talk about belt bags, aka fanny packs. Thoughts?
I was such a hater for a while but have kind of changed my tune in recent weeks. Yes, this Gucci belt bag is the ultimate in chic fanny packs, but let's be serious.... the steep price tag is less than ideal. While I find this to be a trend (aka, short lived), it's one that I'm willing to try for its practicality. However, I'm more in the let's buy a cheap one to see how this goes mindset. So, I found a few options on Amazon (all under $30) and a couple
on Nordstrom that are all worth a shot. If I wear it once, it won't feel like a total waste of money. Shop my fanny pack picks here:

Switching gears from gift guides to what to wear, 'tis the season!
Holiday parties are in full swing and the best way to jazz up your outfit this time of year is to add a little sparkle. Start with your go-to little black dress, add a fun earring and a pop of glitter with a pair of sequined booties... helloooo holidays (or is it holidaze?). Don't forget that you can always find our full 2017 Gift Guide here.

The countdown is on... while the day after Halloween is usually the kick
off for Christmas in my family, we have one holiday getting in the way.
Thanksgiving is one week away! The question remains (and is a stresser
every year), what to wear?? You want to be comfortable while you indulge
in absolutely everything you avoid every other day of the year. It's a day of
good food and good family time, so what's the happy medium of looking
cute while still being able to participate should a backyard flag football game be proposed? In my family, we keep it casual. I stick to some sort of jeans and a trendy sweater combo. Throw on boots, booties or a statement flat and call it a day. Thank goodness looser jeans are in this season... that second piece of pecan pie is definitely happening. Remember, a family photo is definitely going to happen, so don't wear something you'll already regret next year.

The weather completely tricked me into thinking fall was coming soon.
We had a few days of more brisk temperatures followed by today which
has been hot and humid, the story of summer in the south. However, fall is near. It really is. Even if the temperatures stay warm, we can start transitioning our wardrobes by introducing booties paired with lighter tops, sleeveless sweaters with shorts, sandals with a light sweater. September is basically the month where anything goes. It's still entirely too warm to bundle up in sweaters and boots, so go for more lightweight options while scanning the September issues to see what trends are heading our way. One trend that is going to be making huge waves this fall is velvet. Whether you wear a velvet tee, purchase a small handbag of the same material, or try to find the perfect velvet heel (like this one or this one), it's going to be big. Pick your piece, but remember to stick to one velvet item per outfit. Make your look even more on-trend by making your velvet a deep, fall-inspired floral. Shop my favorites below:

We're thrilled to start a new series called What to Wear (Wednesday). What to wear, for instance, to your 10 year high school reunion? You want to look good but not like you're trying too hard. What to wear to a black tie wedding in the middle of summer? We're going to start covering it all... Let's start with what to wear to your bridal shower... There is sure to be more than one, and you most likely want to wear white to at least one of them, because why not? You are the bride... this is all about you. The good news is in the summer there are a plethora of white dress options at your fingertips. We're all very familiar with the trends of the season (bell sleeves, ruffles, layered silks). Choose a dress that is seasonally appropriate and not too trendy (you don't want to look back at the pictures and have a major eye roll moment). We picked four white dresses below that are worth considering. They're all classically elegant and are sure to wow.
This is your moment. Own it. Wear white as much as you want. And don't
forget to send your thank-you notes as soon as possible (see our bridal
notecards here, and add a personal touch by adding "Thank You from the
Future Mrs." to the top under personalization).
