Lately, I have had pearls on my mind. Usually, pearls are seen as the ultimate timeless accent, but more recently, they are being offered in more on-trend and of-the-moment silhouettes. I am loving it!
This season, I am looking to continue to incorporate both pearl embellishment finishes and pearl jewelry to my refined, feminine looks, as well as my everyday, more casual attire. I have always adored my classic Chanel brooch (as seen here, here and here), and the fact that it can be dressed both up and down, so just recently, I picked up these earrings and this pearl embellished dress. Expect to see me wearing more pearls in unexpected ways this season!

I’ve always had a soft spot for nautical and prep – as seen here and here. This Spring I’m loving whimsical prints in more unexpected shapes and silhouettes. And, no Spring wardrobe is complete without a fun pair of rain boots (I admittedly own way too many). This season, I was elated to find classic stripe option (as seen here), with added pops of color. The return of gingham as a dominant spring pattern and retro straw bags makes it easy to put some prep in your step.
Vibrant colors with touches of gold create the foundation for this Spring wanderer. Looser woven constructions and perforated fabrics keep things cool and casual. Love the idea of adding a vintage pieces into the mix as well. I have had recent success on both Etsy and Ebay, and will be checking back often this spring to hunt for market bags, oversized earrings and vintage boater hats. You can see one of my favorite tropical looks from last year here.
A pastel palette creates a feminine feel for this romantic theme, but a hint of black in an accessory or short or pant keeps things from getting overly cutesy. Touches of ruffles and scallops in solids or subdued prints add interest and charm. I have been a huge fan of ruffles this Spring – as seen here and here. To top off the look, add a statement earring or brooch that is a modern interpretation of a classic.
