Sarong SO Right!

  
The next time you find yourself longingly stroking a scarf or sarong

  
thinking that yet another purchase would be “so wrong” (tee hee)

 
think lovingly of THE easiest, chicest beach outfit option, and swipe that credit card like a boss! 

T-shirt, espadrilles or flip flops and GO Beach Baby GO!

Soccer Mom Sass

Suburban mommy life can be…monochromatic at times.

or

POP a little color into the outfit for an unexpected splash of happiness to add to soccer practice, baseball games, swim meets, car pooling etc etc etc…Make it a good purchase, use it and love it for a few years – case in point, Ralph Lauren espadrilles.

And if orange shoes aren’t your thing, absolutely invest in a tube of Dior’s Addict Fluid Stick  – easiest, sexiest, vampiest, most brilliant color addition to your wardrobe!

Leather is big for Spring 2014 AND for Fall 2014.  Balenciaga, Gucci, Yigal Azrouel, Fendi, Akris, Chanel, Jonathan Simkhai  – all the cool kids have skins in their collections!

Translation – buy now, wear now and later!  Amortize that purchase peeps!

Jeans, T-shirt and a Skirt

Technically the jeans item is a jean jacket, but updating the jeans & t-shirt look for Spring is a great excuse to bring out the skirts. skirt1 Swing style is big for Spring 2014.  Movement is the key word.  Cue silly video…

Jonathan Simkhai’s flirty swing skirt is one of my new fave staples – it can be dressed up or down – like way up with stilettos and a silk tank or way down with flip-flops and cotton tank.  That is the sign of an incredible piece!  Click here to go get one! skt J Crew has a couple of fun flirty skirts in solids & florals, all at an easy price point too.  Click each picture to go get some retail therapy!
