Arm Candy

Ms. Coco Chanel's fashion rule of taking one thing off before you walk out the door may be ousted this season, as accessories are piled on the wrist.  It certainly is not a minimalist accessory season, instead countless fashion editorials have shown bangle after bangle layered up the arms.

For a fun mix pair your watch on the same wrist as a few of your bracelets.  Try mixing bangles of different shapes, complimenting colors, and juxtaposing materials. Or play it safe with a stack of solid bangles. Really, the more the merrier!

I'd start with a Chan Luu Wrap, and a Michael Kors watch

Flower Power

If you follow me on Pinterest you are aware of my latest obsession, florals. With spring here I can't seem to stop pinning picture after picture of floral arrangements.  Now this should come as no surprise because I've spent my summers as child roaming through Longwood Gardens flower beds with my Mom-mom.  While she has a much greener thumb than I (I struggle with even growing spider plants), I'm in luck because fashion seems to have been bit by the floral bug too.

Designer such as Rodarte, Peter Som, and Jason Wu sent their models strutting down the Spring 2012 runway in floral ensembles.  Even the denim world seems to have been inspired by florals by printing both big and small floral- like patterns on their denim.  Celebs also have been adding florals to their wardrobes such as Olivia Palermo, Emma Watson, and Miranda Kerr.

Really, nothing else says spring has arrived quite like a bouquet of beautiful flowers, so if you can't grow them, why not wear them?

Trend: Turquoise Denim

Colored denim is MAJOR right now and turquoise (one of the season's hottest colors) is the best way to wear it! With the constantly changing temperatures colored denim is a great way to transition into a spring wardrobe. Wear it with your preppy knits on chilly days and silky florals and tees on warm days. Colors such as crisp white, punchy pink, nautical navy, and tropical coral pair perfectly with turquoise denim. Here's how I would wear the shade day to night:

The Perfect Spring/Summer Wedge

Every season I have at least one go to shoe. You know, the kind that just seems to go with everything, no matter the color or style. Well for this Spring I've already deemed Kate Spade's Lindsay, my IT shoe. With the wedged platform it's not only the perfect height but also stable, making it comfy for those hours spent standing outdoors in the beautiful weather. But really let's talk about the seriously amazing multi colored striped rope heel. What a fun statement! Literally ever color in the rainbow is in the heel but the straps remain a neutral patent leather nude.

Put a Cork In It

My boss recently introduced me to Stuart Weitzman's Rowsoon Pump, which I've then deemed the essential neutral heel for spring. Really, with its light color and shades of darker neutrals mixed throughout the cork, what won't this heel match?

While the Rowsoon may have started my spring shoe search, it certainly did not end it. As I browsed through the spring collections I noticed multiple other cork options, proving that cork is one of the hottest trends for spring. Elaine Turner does a wedged cork, Manolo a casual flip flop, Badgley Mischka a dressy heel, and Jack Rogers a classic sandal. Really, there's tons of great options for you!

Hats Attacked

Did you hear the Queen put a ban on fascinators for the Ascot Races? Love them or hate them, you have to admit they are like a piece of art! What are your thoughts?
