Spring is in full swing here in the lower states (sorry to my friends who are still scraping ice off of their cars in the a.m.). And it is just too hot to not show a little leg and embrace the lighter hues of Springtime (read: my pastel obsession is no where near finished). Here are some of my Spring-Time essentials to keep it classy, feminine, and chic while in the office or off-duty.

I am super in to round eyed sunglasses lately, as I am always a supporter of a style throw-back. These sunnies are so retro and remind me of Janis Joplin (totally diggin’ that “free as the wind” hippie vibe). Caution, this frame may not work for every face shape… but try it anyway- it’s only fashion, have some fun!

This style of bag just emanates upper East side elegance. Carry this tote in the crook of your arm while you text 1,000 words per minute to your assistant because you’re obviously too fabulous and important for mundane tasks. Double points if it comes with a cross-body strap, for navigating the subway and other tumultuous terrain when your car service doesn’t show.
Really this essential needs no explanation.
Pastels = Best comeback since Britney Spears post 2007
Shorts = Forced leg tanning after winter hibernation
You can see it on the runway (Or carousel, rather, as per one SS ’12 show) at Louis Vuitton… YSl and Thakoon, too. On trendsetters and celebs alike… and I NEED to get in on this action! I currently have these Stuart Weitzman beauties sitting in my shopping cart, and pending a tax refund check (thank you accountant/boyfriend), they will be mine!
Both of these spring bling styles have dominated the fashion scene in 2012. Druzy has the perfect amount of toned-down sparkle to bling it out day or night. Florals are EVERYWHERE this season; clothes, shoes, accessories, home goods, it’s hard to avoid it, so why not add a little to your jewelry box and welcome this trend with open arms.
So show off your gams and don some pastel shorts, transformer toes, geo-style rings, and top handles cuteness, and enjoy this amazing spring weather and all of the great things this season has to offer.
