trends to try - floral prints

Floral prints are always a staple for spring, and this year is no exception. And here in New York, the weather is FINALLY beginning to warm up, and spring finally seems to have sprung.

And I don't know about you, but it's putting me in the mood to finally break out some floral in my wardrobe!

Here is how this classic style has been making a splash on the runways:

{Zac Posen}

As many of us spend a large majority of time in an office, it's nice to be able to find a fun way to work this light and romantic trend into a professional setting:

1. Modcloth
2. H&M
3. Jimmy Choo
4. Tory Burch

I also can't wait to rock this trend over a seasonable spring weekend. This outfit makes me think of an afternoon stroll in the park with Bryan!

1. American Apparel
2. Rag & Bone
3. Tilly's
4. Bauble Bar
5. Jimmy Choo

And how do YOU plan to rock floral prints as spring progresses?

Linking up!

rainy day fashion

No one enjoys a rainy day. That just seems to be a fact.

But more specifically, no one enjoys how a rainy day can inhibit your outfit choices!

This morning I had an outfit already laid out from the night before, which is a rarity for me, only to realize that I couldn't wear it today since it was not "rain friendly."

And thus began the search.

This morning I chose an over-sized sweater and a skirt with a fun pattern to be worn over leggings with boots. I would've taken a picture, but as usual I was running out the door to catch a train this morning.

And while I definitely love my current clothing choice, especially because I love leggings and any excuse to wear them, my typical rainy day outfit is pretty solid. And pretty stylish!

Top: sweater, a chambray shirt, or both!

The name of the game is comfy and cozy on a rainy day, so an over sized sweater is just perfect in my opinion. A chambray shirt is also such a staple, and also very comfortable - and if you're anything like me, you'll instantly fall in love with layering the two together!

Bottom: Colored Jeans

{Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Old Navy}

Now, you may be asking yourself, why colored jeans versus regular denim?

My logic is, it's already a gloomy day. So there is nothing that I like more then finding the light in every day and situation, and if that's as silly as wearing bright pants on a dark and rainy day, then that's what it is.

If nothing else, it'll make someone smile!

Footwear: BOOTS (of course!)

{Hunter, Tretorn, Ralph Lauren}

Now, a neutral pair is always good to have so it can go with any outfit, but if you're like me and have multicolored boots (I happen to have white Coach boots with pink and purple C's), make sure to fit the rest of the outfit accordingly.

Hair: ANYTHING but down!
My go-to choices are a high bun or a side braid. Basically, anything that's not going to be destroyed by a trip outside is the key.

Also, as obvious as it seems, get a strong and sturdy umbrella.

The only reason that I make a point of saying that is because the wind turned MINE inside out at least 100 times on my walk to the train this morning.

And personally, I did NOT care for that.
