As a lover of accessories, I tend to buy more statement making jewelry and leave the handbag as a cool neutral; black, white, brown and sometimes the occasional pattern.
But this season I really wanted a bag that added a pop to an outfit, so I went with this adorable coral-tangerine Aldo “Tuenno” satchel. It has just enough gold hardware to make it a bit edgy, and it comes with a strap in case I want to transform it into a messenger bag. I know it may not the most luxurious bag, but I believe that trendier prices should be more thrifty and you should truly invest into your outfit staples.
I love my new bag. This hue is a change from my usual color pallet but I still think it will enhance the majority of my outfits. I mean, isn’t that what accessories are meant for?
There is just something about these blue patterned Wayf pants that I just truly love. Ok, so they obviously remind me a bit of some Parker pants that we sold at Nordstrom but clearly a fraction of the price. I also love how they remind me of water. So fun and summery and what says summer more than a white blazer? This outfit was so much fun and I felt so good in it!

Living in New England, it can be hard to tell when the seasons change. You can’t go by what the calendar says because even though it says it’s officially spring you can get a surprising 4 inches of snow on the last day of March.
But for me, spring starts when I start to wear any form of color again. Like many, I tend to wear a very neutral color pallet in the colder seasons.
That’s why I loved grabbing this jacket from my closet this morning. The khaki and floral yellow combo really brightened up not only my outfit but my mood. Since it is now officially April and fingers crossed that we have seen the last of the snow, let us rejoice in our spring wardrobe!

If there’s one thing that Jeremy Scott and the rest of the Moschino company doesn’t have to worry about it’s brand recognition. No one can miss who designed the clothing that walked down the runway today in Milan. Who else but Jeremy Scott would create a fall collection that consisted off high fashioned McDonald’s uniforms, Spongebob Squarepants attire, and junk food gowns? Hey, all I can say is that at least the show is interesting and there is no way anyone will forget it. And I really want the happy meal cross body bag. Just saying.
There’s a clear element (no pun intended) of earthliness in Philip Lim’s fall 2014 collection, not only through pattern but through necklines, colors, and texture. But don’t feel as though you are going to look like a science fair. Each piece still has a new and modern feel and are completely wearable in every day life.
