Wear Now, Wear Later: White Trousers

Wear Now, Wear Later; White Trousers
Here is another installment in my “Wear Now, Wear Later” series, featuring white trousers which are on my wish-list for Spring. For the now look I went a little nautical with a navy/white striped sweater. To keep it from feeling too preppy, I added an olive-hued trench coat and pretty pumps in a contrasting print. This look still feels light and fresh for Spring, but it’s covered enough to combat the still-cool temps. Later, ditch the overcoat and sweater, in favor of a breezy top with beautiful on-trend embroidery. Give your toes a breath of fresh air with these mustard sandals, and add black accessories for a chic black and white ensemble.

Now: Reiss trousers, J. Crew top, Vanessa Bruno Jacket, J. Crew pumps, Miss Selfridge bracelet pack, Topshop satchel, and Estee Lauder lipstick.

Later: Reiss trousers, Temperley London top, Theory sandals, Bar III bracelets, ALDO clutch, and Pim + Larkin studs

Have a great weekend!

I couldn’t wait any longer to break out this amazing, floral See by Chloe jacket that’s been hanging in my closet for months! I love the unexpected combination of a sporty parka with a pretty floral print, and since I don’t typically dress super feminine, this is a perfect piece for me to incorporate florals into my Spring wardrobe without feeling too girly. I can’t wait for it to be warm enough to have this jacket in my regular rotation!

Florals and Suede

Picked up this dress on sale at Aritzia a couple weeks ago… I was drawn in by the colors and print which promised seasonal versatility, but the real clincher for me was the back – I’m a sucker for an exposed zipper and an unexpectedly low back, and this piece has both. And it was on sale. Done deal, my friends.

Since the weather isn’t exactly cooperating with the calendar, I paired this floral number with suede boots – but I can’t wait to wear it with sandals or wedges when the temperatures go up! Until then… Have a great weekend, everyone!

Wearing – T. Babaton dress via Aritzia (like this too), Silence & Noise blazer, Calvin Klein boots (old, similar), vintage belt, Chocolate New York clutch (love this one), Michael Kors watch, J. Crew bracelets (here)

In my Mother’s continued efforts to make me a hat person, I received this straw topper a couple of weeks ago… She discovered a website that offers sizes, thereby providing accommodation for my unusually small head. It’s not that I don’t like hats, I’m just not convinced they look good on me… However, one of my favorite things about fashion is that you can take risks, try new things, and if they don’t work then you can move on and laugh about it later. Although… Maybe my Mom is always right… I do think this straw hat and floral scarf will become go-to Spring accessories for me. What accessories are you dying to wear all Spring?

Wearing – James Jeans, Tunic blouse via Marshalls (love this one), Jessica Simpson booties (similar), Pins and Needles scarf (old, like this one), Hat (gifted, similar), Michael Kors watch, Gorjana rings (here and here), Bracelets via Gilt, vintage, and Off-Fifth

Keaton Row and Trendseeder Collab at Minds Matter Charity Event

Last night, some Keaton Row stylists and I attended the Minds Matter charity event hosted at the gorgeous venue Hudson Terrace. We were representing KR and Trendseeder, a start-up company that specializes in selling up-and-coming designers. The other stylists and I served as models for a few of the Trendseeder designer’s Spring fashions!

I was lucky enough to meet the co-founders and creative minds behind the designs that I wore from SPOON fashion: Randi Spoon and Alexis Przybylski Lawton. Thank you, ladies, for letting me borrow your lovely pieces for a night!

Suit Up Ladies

I think one of the sexiest things a woman can wear is a suit – when I see a perfectly cut suit with an androgynous vibe and covered-up sex appeal… I die. I am particularly swooning over short-suits for Spring (a trend that is still in motion from last year), which can easily be dressed up or down (note street style with Converse below). Plus, I love the various colors, prints, and textures that make an updated, modern suit for women… Scroll through this post for a little suit-inspiration for Spring:
