trends to try - black + white

There are so many great trends that are being displayed everywhere this season.

One of the biggest ones is black and white!

Now these colors have been neutral staples for any girl's wardrobe since the beginning of time, but now they're hot in a big way and have been all over the runways since a few weeks ago during Fashion Week.

{3.1 Phillip Lim}

Of course, there are few things I find more fun then taking the chic looks of the runway and transcribing them to work for every day wear.

Since I spend much of my time at work, I'm always trying to find fun ways to be fashionable and office appropriate.

Here's a great way to rock this trend in the office:

1. Rag & Bone
2. J. Crew
3. Steve Madden
4. Cole Haan
5. Kate Spade

The look below can work for a more casual feel with flats, or even a night out with heels or wedges:

1. Zara
2. Ralph Lauren Blue
3. Bauble Bar
4. Tory Burch
5. Kate Spade
6. Betsey Johnson

I can't wait to try out this awesome trend as spring rolls on.

Now how are you feeling about this hot trend?

Happy Friday!

wednesday wants - back to basics

This week for my Wednesday Wants, I'm going back to basics.

As every girl knows, there are some essentials you always need in your closet.

Here are the list of those "classic" needs that I'm craving right now!

{Old Navy}

Old Navy isn't my favorite store, but when it comes to basic layering pieces, they are IT.

The price is definitely right on this Perfect Rib-Knit tank. It comes in tons and tons of colors, is extremely comfortable, and just perfect for layering all year long!


A black blazer is one of the greatest pieces a girl can own. Plus it's so easy to add it onto any outfit to fancy-it-up!

{J. Crew}

Black skinny jeans go with almost anything, and can give a more sophisticated look then your typical pair of regular jeans.

LBD. Need I say more? Every girl needs a little black dress in her closet, and this one is just adorable!


I may have a slight addiction to my chambray shirt, seeing as I wear it all the time. I have one in a darker color, but this light one needs to be mine ASAP.

There is nothing like having a few core basics that you can pair with fun different pieces to mix and match for amazing new looks!

What do YOU consider to be your basics?

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.

{Shirt: Loft, Skirt: Express, Tights: H&M, Boots: Ciao Bella}
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?
