I love the sunshine! Just a few days ago it was the first day of spring & I am beyond excited for this new season! Let the sun shine on in….
Spring is always such an exciting season & especially after months of wearing boots and bundling up every day, it’s so exciting to put on pretty dresses & tops, light weight jackets and open toe sandals again. I’m so excited for all the new outfits to wear once the weather is perfect and warm again!

PINK-RUFFLES-HEARTS

This season there are so many amazing new trends that definitely match my personal style on repeat: feminine details, bright colors & a vintage vibe. I’m so excited about these new looks but I know that sometimes it can be hard to figure out what you might want or need to refresh your wardrobe come spring.

Throwback Style Inspiration…..Sixties Style Icon-Jean Shrimpton

Who is on your fashion radar this spring? Some people always have their favorite style icons & others get inspired by the trends & have new icons each season….and as the sunshine begins to replace the snow & the winter season goes, it’s time to get inspired for Spring Summer 2017! Usually I’m always inspired by those who are a little offbeat & bold, but right now I’m so loving all the retro floral prints & pretty dresses that were on the SS17 runways, as well as all the feminine chiffons, ruffles upon ruffles, crisp cotton tops & of course the color PINK. This brings to mind the retro-modern days of the swinging sixties where women got into music, art & the “mod pop fashion scene” of London.

 

This season, I’m inspired by Jean Shrimpton in the 1960’s. 

 

Jean Shrimpton is an English model and actress. She was considered “The Face of the 60’s” & was one of the first supermodels! She had an amazing, memorable & truly timeless style that still resonates today….I love her feminine yet modern look.

The Look- Retro. Modern. Feminine

get inspired…

Paris Fashion Week-FW 2017 Style Trend: “The Madness of Glamour”

It’s all about GLAMOUR for the Fall 17 season from Paris Fashion Week. “When the going gets tough, the tough dress up” and there was a feeling of dressing up against all odds, against all the madness of the world….

I especially loved the collections of Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Saint Laurent & Isabel Marant. There were lovely faux fur coats in sweet pastels and fall brights. Dresses were embellished with metallics and lace. The overall feeling was eclectic, RETRO-kitch and psychedelic. I’m loving the pretty dresses, tailored coats, delicate ruffle trims, metallics & retro embellishments.

HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE LOOKS FROM PARIS Fashion Week for Fall Winter 2017.

The latest look is “THE MADNESS OF GLAMOUR”

Get inspired….

Get inspired by Spring’s Fab Floral Prints….The Inspiration: “Flower Girl”

flower-girl

Currently craving…. Bright Colors & Bold Floral Prints for Spring/ Summer ’17.

For the Spring/ Summer season, there were some great designer collections with retro-inspired & playful flower print dresses, tops & jackets that totally remind me of 60’s & 70’s “Flower Power” dresses. I’ve always loved hunting through vintage shops for those one of a kind dresses in prints so similar to those that went down the runways of Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga & Chloe this season.

I can’t wait for spring to get here & to start embracing some bright colors, retro accessories & fun prints again!

Here are some of my favorite “Flower Girl” inspired items for SS17:

The Look #19-“Ruffled & Ripped” White Tops & Dresses with Denim & Bright Handbags…. #Outfitinspo for Spring ’17

It’s been so warm and sunny the past few days in NYC!

4de87daf09e2b502b3ecbb7b597f0306

I’m getting so excited for the NEW SPRING SEASON & thinking about all the fun tops and pretty dresses to wear when the weather stays warm for good. I know everyone has their “go-to” looks and special timeless favorites that they come back to time & time again….For me it’s always been the pretty white tops & dresses paired with denim that really sets the mood for me for early spring. My closet seems to be filled with cotton, chiffon & lacy little white dresses and tops that I never seem to tire of & I always LOVE to pull them out again at the first signs of spring. I think this is such a classic and feminine look that always looks fantastic & perfectly accessorized with gold jewelry and edgy leather accessories mixed with pops of color.

The off the shoulder trend is still going strong this season….as well as bell sleeves, ruffles and one shoulder style tops and dresses. Pair your ruffled tops with ripped denim & cool leather with soft lace….

Here is a recent #OOTD I wore for a lunch date that I posted on INSTAGRAM.
