Want to Wear… White!

$229, $130, $39.99

Someone recently asked me if it was still taboo to wear white before memorial day. The answer really depends! Sure I might not break out my starch white cafe capris, but I have nothing against a rich winter white. Especially when it is trimmed with gold!

This winter white structured mid thigh jacket is perfect for those crisp spring days. I am obsessed with the shape, especially those exaggerated shoulders! This is  a jacket that would definitely warrant a second look! It has delicate gold threading throughout! 

I layered this heavenly find with a similar top. This time white with gold polka dots atop a white blouse!

Trend Alert!

Polka dots are not just for Minnie Mouse anymore! We have been seeing it everywhere! This blouse has a special addition with layers of tassel that give this top the swing it needs to be perfect for the spring!

And how about these  platform, metallic, Mary Jane teenie tiny peep toes! An essential for any season! I feel as though metallics have found a way into ever season! 

The moral of the story, white and metallics…wear without fear!

Easter Eyelet

$220

In search of an Easter Sunday outfit? Since spring is upon us, why not try an eyelet dress! I found an amazing See by Chloe eyelet dress at TJ’s.  This dress was paired with some white, leather flower earrings (yes, white leather!!!) and my oh so loved metallic, Kate Spade heels!

This dress has to be worn with the perfect accessories (simple) and on the right occasion so not to give off that “little house on the prairie” vibe.

Louis Vuitton sent many eyelet dresses doing the runway for his Spring 2012 collection. Kind of a fan of the feathers too…

Key Lime Kate

$149

Nothing says spring more that a green and white polished dress. I scooped up this Kate Spade dress from TJ’s and sported it during our photo shoot! 

Paired with gold earrings, a white, beaded flower bracelet, and blood orange heels. This look is perfect to wear to a Sunday brunch, a graduation party, or even the Kentucky derby! Just need to find a nice, extremely large, hat.

Our favorite Blair Waldorf wore a similar spring’esque dress in a scene for Gossip Girl. 

Kate Spade designed this (almost identical to my magical dress) Verandah Place  purse!!
