appy March, fashionistas! I know you're dying for the cold to end so you can start stocking up your spring wardrobe. I am too...especially since winter on the east coast has been unpredictable! (We're talking one day it's 25° then 70° the next. The never ending battle of shorts vs. the extra thick sweater + scarf combo. My body is utterly confused at this point.) But before you go gallivanting around the mall, there's a few things you might want to consider, like the color palette for the season! (Did you know that color is the number one thing we gravitate towards when shopping?) Corals and shades of sea foam are major trends, especially among accessories. You'll be seeing lots of nautical themes, fitting for the beach so embrace starfish bangles and anchor earrings. The color of the year is one of my personal favorites, orchid. You can find it in an array of shades, so chose one that you find most flattering for your complexion. It's all about mixing bright yellows, oranges and pinks with neutrals (like grey and beige). Now, check out a few of my favorite pieces that I think you'll look lovely in this spring!

On my quest to find spring clothing appropriate for NYC I came across this aztec embroidered print skirt from Francesca's Collections (hover image to shop). At first I thought it wouldn't be that flattering on me, but after giving it a try in the fitting room I realized actually how flattering the shape was and how versatile having a piece like this in my wardrobe could be. Long story short, it came home with me along with a pair of flats and a vintage print crop tank. Success!
Don't think that I've forgotten about the Academy Awards! Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Lupita Nyong'o (Best Performance Supporting winning Actress in the film 12 Years a Slave...congrats girl!) were a few that made my personal 'best dressed' list from last night's Oscars. All 3 of these gowns perfectly reflect the season's trends and color palette, not to mention they look stunning on these A-listers. Their stylists deserve a standing ovation. What was your favorite look of the night?
