Hello & Happy Friday! I’m getting excited for this weekend & a chance to unwind….Last week I wore this Asos ruffle top (sold out) & my new favorite Articles of Society jeans for a fun lunch date in Brooklyn….

With SPRING/ SUMMER weather right around the corner, it’s time to finally start getting your new wardrobe in order! One TREND that’s set to continue is “Ruffles on Ruffles” in pretty, happy spring colors! Now is the time to ditch the black winter clothes & start adding some fun & flirty tops & romantic ruffled dresses. With the Ruffle Trend, more is always more, so let the ruffling begin….Weather you will be hitting the city streets or heading out of town on a much-needed tropical Vay-cay, be sure to include something with Ruffles in your assortment

 

This is one of my absolute favorite trends this season & there are so many variations….

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…

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!

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.
