warmer weather loving

Hi everyone!

So I'm sorry that I've fallen off of the blogosphere for the past few days. With the combination of allergy season getting the best of me (who else is a victim?!) and work piling up, it had gotten slightly difficult to keep up the momentum that I had worked so hard to build up.

But now I'm back! and now I'm ready to EMBRACE, rather than dread, the warm and wonderful weather that has finally come upon us, because of the sniffles it gave me.

Last Tuesday was beautiful here in New York City, and I was more than ready to celebrate!

This outfit made me really excited for a couple of reasons.

One, it has three of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe - my chambray shirt, my leopard belt, and my nude pumps!
Two, it's the first time of 2013 that I've been able to sport a skirt with no tights! Sure my legs could have used some color (I personally LOVE Nivea Sun-Kissed Beautiful Legs) but besides that, I'd call the outfit a great success!

runway to closet - stripes

While a lot of trends seen on the runway during Fashion Week can seem a little bit out there, some can easily be converted into everyday wear.

Stripes in particular were seen all over the place this season, but these were not just any stripes - the hot variety these days is "Big, Bright and Bold!"

Below are some examples of how this was used on the runway:

{Dolce & Gabbana}
{Christian Dior}
{Oscar de la Renta}

Of course, sprinkled into stores everywhere are fun ways for the everyday girl (and guy, we won't discriminate by gender) to rock this look for spring.

{J. Crew}
{Forever 21}

Even though the first day of spring is not technically until tomorrow, and here in New York the weather is still very much stuck in winter mode, I am just SO excited that I needed to get a jump start on this trend a day early.

While this shirt is from last year, this is inspiring me to think of all the fun striped items that I need for my closet this year.

Are you excited about stripes for spring?
