Pretty in Pastel!

Last year everyone was ob-sessed with the innocently sweet color: blush pink – in winter, in fall, it didn’t matter, the crowd-pleasing pastel was all anyone was talking about, ourselves included {check this post!}. But this spring, baby blue is back, paving the way for this season’s soft color trend and we’re loving it everywhere from decor details to major fashion statements!


Convinced of the power of pastels as much as we are? I mean, just look at that pastel blue suede sofa! Take it from that chic French family or the Celine runway or that epic Australian home, you’ll want to add this pretty hue to your life asap!

3 Unexpected Spring Trends That Totally Work

So I know we already talked about spring fashion trends this week, but the near 75 degree San Francisco weather and the thought of getting my pre-pregnancy closet back very soon has me a tad obsesed. Because as much as I love my ripped skinnies, statement coats and a good It Bag, I’m definitely feeling ready for something totally new. Once I get my pre-baby body back, I’m going to be trying one of these adventurous spring match-ups that are so surprisingly unexpected, I think they totally work!


Unexpected Match-Up #1: Skirt Over Pants Silhouette. The most trend-setting women are finding new ways to layer – with a dress or skirt over pants! An odd match at first, but the fashion forward look and its eye-catching silhouette is what makes this trend turn heads, in a good way!


Unexpected Match-Up #2: Tasseled Accessories. No amount of tassel is too much this spring! Wear gobs of them on your pants, string pounds of them on your purse and have fun letting them fly on your feet. The easiest way to add them into your wardrobe is with a show-stopping accessory! We’ve already added more than one to our wishlist.


Unexpected Match-Up #3: Bare Backs and Buttons. We’re going to see a lot of skin this spring, but in a totally unexpected way. Business in the front and party in the back is a matchup that we fully support because business shouldn’t have to be boring! Simply flip your button up around  – and wear the avant garde look with confidence!

Curious to see what other unexpected spring trends we’re obsessing over? Head over to today – we’re sharing even more out-of-the-box ideas there!

Spring Fashion Fling

We’ve been stacking our pennies all winter long for this time of year. It’s so time to shake off the winter wardrobe blues and put on something fresh and fun for Spring!


This season, we’re all about loose, casual basics – you can literally live in a little capsule wardrobe – no need to clean out your entire closet. The key? Mix and match classic style staples with the perfect dash of personal style. Oh make sure your accessories are top notch! That’s what will help every day’s look feel new.

Thankfully, an entire site’s worth of our closet “must-have splurges” are on sale – for one week only! Have you always wanted to own a Clare V. clutch? Oui! Eyeing some Karen Walker sunnies since last spring? We’re also a big fan of making it a priority to buy quality over quantity.
