Trend Watch SS15 // No Pants, No Problem

Here's an interesting look I've been seeing pop up over and over on the Spring Runways: the sheer skirt. Sometimes they appear as an overlay to a leotard type look, and sometimes as an extension to an already existing skirt or dress.
Thought this might not be a trend we'll see everyday on the street, I have a feeling that it'll be a huge trend come red carpet season!

Michael Kors is EVERYTHING // Spring 15

"It's a summer night... You're driving in a convertible 
...with the top down... the wind is in your hair, 
you're beautiful and in love..."

The only thing more perfect than than the model instructions for the Michael Kors Spring 15 show, was the show itself. The collection is full of happy spring flowers, classic silhouettes and a laid-back preppy vibe - I want to wear it all, right now. Plus - how gorgeous are those messy braids? Perfection perfection perfection. 


More please!!!

SS15 // Sweet and Sunny

Ok, I admit, we're keeping it pretty basic with the trend reporting around here - but hey, someone's gotta state the obvious! Today's trend: YELLOW. There has been a whole lot of the friendly, sunny color showing up this week, which Pantone has labeled Custard, a "delicious and detectible yellow."

Here a a few of my favorite instances of custard on the runways so far:
top row: Lela Rose // DVF // Nanette Lepore
bottom row: Carolina Herrera // Karen Walker
Naeem Khan
Tory Burch
J. Crew
Jenny Packham
Alice & Olivia
Oscar de la Renta
Veronica Beard

What do you think? Will you be stocking up on custard colored clothing?

NYFW SS15 // Nanette Lepore

I always love Nanette Lepore's shows, they're fun, girly and totally gorgeous. And her S/S 15 runway last night was no exception. In fact, it felt a little like being transported to a tropical beach party.
Flirty caftans, striped bathing suits in bright, fruity colors - all completed with messy-chic top knots - strutted down the catwalk with "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" blasting in the background.
All that was missing? Pina Coladas!

Here are a few snaps I was able to get dunning the show! (check out the full collection here).
Loved this opened-back mint number.
This sweet neutral top was paired with pretty printed pants.
The bathing suit dreams a made of. 
Several looks had strappy backs like this one!
Nanette's daughter closed the show in an embroidered black and white dress - the entire crowed cheered! 
And what beach party would be complete without a conga-line?? 

So, I'm ready for it to be Spring, what about you?

Insider Tip // Invest in Bleach

Fashion Week is back again, and in full swing! Which means it's time to start tend-spotting for Spring. What's standing our the most to me so far is the amount of white that's been gracing the runways. Flowing gowns, structured dresses and even pant-suits - white is showing up all over for Spring.

Although I love white, and often attempt to wear it, I have a bad habit of spilling everything I eat or drink while wearing white. So it seems that I'll be adding Clorox to the top of my Spring shopping list... along with several little white dresses! What about you?

Summer In Pink

Recently I've been a little enamored with pink. Not Schiaparelli pink but a softer pink, like the sky after a summer sunset. Which seems appropriate as summer is {somehow!} already winding down.


To help sooth those end of summer blues, go pink! Here's what's been inspiring me...

Resort 2015 // Short & Chic

I've been spending some time lately getting caught-up on Resort 2015 collections, and while doing so I've noticed a fun little trend. Shorts! OKOK - I know. Shorts? For Resort? A Trend? But before you get all...
...let me explain. This trend isn't "I'm going to the beach lemme throw on some shorts" shorts. It's fancy shorts - like, "I'd rock that at work shorts." Let's dive in:  

Check out what Carolina Herrera is up to. Super classy high-waisted shorts paired with fancy tops and a fun 1940s vibe {I'm aware I have included a dress, it was just way too cute to leave out!}
Here's Andrew Gn with a look that feels like the uber chic up-town girl's cool little sister. I'd hang out with her, wouldn't you? 
And of course Rachel Zoe brings an elegant yet edgy take on the look with several monochromatic sets.   
And to finish up my little analysis, here's Honor. The ultimate in girly with florals and lace and wispy romantic blouses. Le sigh. 

So, see what I mean? Pretty fun little trend, huh? And to think you doubted me! 

Want to rock this look now? Here are a few fun options:
