Steals + Deals

Happy Monday and almost-April! This time of year is the best time to purchase those fab winter items that are FINALLY on sale, and get a head start on spring/summer fashion that is currently discounted.  Below are a few items I have my eye on - I LOVE that leopard coat and am so tempted to buy it for next winter, and those leopard-print sandals would pair perfectly with spring and summer dresses; that Kate Spade bag is a classic {I would wear it all year round!} and simple statement earrings with spring colors would be the perfect addition to any outfit. Happy shopping!

Fashion + Philanthropy Friday

Happy Friday!  I am currently loving the Marketplace on TOMS' website, and this sweet chevron clutch is one of the reasons why! Designed by Joyn, the purchase of this clutch {buy here} helps provide employment, educational opportunities, and medical care to artisans in the Himalayas.  This would be so perfect for summer!

Now that it's spring and soon will be wearing sundresses and sandals, I like to brighten up my skin and look sunkissed - the safe way.  Below are some products that achieve this effect - self-tan lotion, neutral shimmer, and a great pair of sunglasses {and sunscreen, always!}

Elie Tahari Spring 2014

Elie Tahari is one of my favorite designers; his designs are always classic with just the right amount of edge, and he makes the BEST spring coats and jackets! The Elie Tahari Spring 2014 collection was stunning, yet again, and is my current inspiration for spring fashion {all images via}

I know floral prints can be cliche for spring, but how cute is this sweatshirt? It's a more bold print, so I feel it makes it more modern than the average spring flower pieces and ensembles. I would pair it with a chic leather skirt {I feel like summer is the only season leather bottoms don't work}, a pair of great, pointed toe leather flats, and a spring-hue bag {this Alexander Wang classic is a personal fave!} How do you wear floral prints for spring?

Mani Monday

Happy Monday! I recently tried Scotch Naturals nail polish for the first time {shop here}, and love what I discovered - beautiful, bold color, no harsh chemicals, and a great base and top coat polishes.  I bought "Highland Fling" which is the perfect coral for spring and summer; have you ever used Scotch Naturals? What did you think?

Swimsuit Love

It's almost bathing suit season, which is equal parts terrifying and exciting.  I am mostly excited because it's an excuse to buy a new swimsuit, and I am loving some of the current trends! I am over the string-bikini phase, and am totally open to unique shapes for bkinis and even one pieces - which one would you choose?

Spring just makes me in the mood for all things pastel, and jewelry is included! I recently picked up a pair of mint-colored earrings from Jewelmint {sign up for Jewelmint here}, and I absolutely love them for this time of year.  Below you can check them out {purchase the earrings here} - how do you incorporate pastels into your wardrobe for spring?
