Foodie Fashionista // Kale + Cashmere

Monday's always bring a few struggles.

Ugh, I have to get out of bed?
What am I going to wear?
Why is my hair doing this weird curl thing?
Why are there so many other people going the same way I'm going???!?!?!
And then the constant struggle - what's for lunch??

So let's try something new this week! We'll start with a little lunch time inspiration, in the form of a fig & beet salad from Five and Spice and let the gorgeous colors guide our sartorial decisions.


Green and brown and gold with a touch of cream? Not a bad look, huh?

How To Dress // Taylor Swift

Here's the thing - despite the cat and the obvious pumpkin spice latte {so basic} I'm really loving Taylor's look here. It's simple, but polished - and the blue/rust color combo is pretty much perfect for fall.
Here's how to snag her style for yourself {minus the cat...}

Fall Street Style // Grey on Grey

Now that it's officially Fall (yep, that's right - it's FALL) let's take a little break from Spring trend forecasting and focus on what's going on right now. It seems that the street style pros have been going grey. Grey on grey on grey. 
I'm sort of obsessed with this look... shades monochromatic cozy-ness....perfect for Fall, don't you think?

I think I could rock the all grey look pretty much all the time.

Trend Watch SS15 // Check-List

The preppy part of me has always been a huge fan of gingham, so I have to admit, seeing it show up over and over on the Spring runways makes me pretty happy. And it's more than just the classic gingham pattern that seems to be emerging as a trend, other versions of the checked pattern have been showing up as well - from the more cross-hatched look at Lela Rose, to large scale checks from Oscar de la Renta.

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.

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:
