This dress reminds me of one of my favorite fashion moments in movie history… the polo scene in Pretty Woman, when Julia Roberts is wearing that brown and white polka-dot dress, cinched with a belt, and a straw hat. And, of course, I get confused for Julia Roberts all.the.time
in my dreams. Now all I need is a silver fox/billionaire to woo me and take me to polo matches… What are some of your favorite fashion moments in movies?

Never ones to pass up a designer diffusion collection, my Mom and I picked out this number from the Derek Lam for Kohl’s line that launched recently. I love the combination of colors in this dress and its versatility – I can wear this dress to the office, out to dinner, or with flats and a scarf on the weekends. This piece is definitely joining the ranks of my go-anywhere Summer dresses…

To transition this mixed-print Tee to a fun date night, I paired it with a high-waist skirt in an on-season green hue and sexy ankle-strap sandals. I also added gold jewelry to make the look a little extra special. Other great options for a date night include a leather skirt or shorts, skinny jeans and pumps, or a romantic, pleated midi-skirt. How would you style this Tee for a night out? Stay tuned for the final look: comfortable and chic for daytime!

This is part one in a 3-look series featuring this mixed pattern tee from Madewell. I used this piece in so many Lookbooks for my clients (sign up for a styling session here), that I knew I had to have it! To show how versatile this floral and striped top can be, I styled it for work, day, and a date-night using pieces from my own wardrobe. What do you think of this look for the office? Stay tuned for more ways to wear this Spring top!

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!

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)

Just thought I’d give you a peek at a typical work outfit for me. My office is conservative, so in the winter I have stuck pretty close to a trousers and blouse formula. To keep my personality, I layer on some jewelry, add a fun belt, or swap in some trendy shoes. Sidenote: I love that the weather is starting to warm up in New York, because it means I can wear my many trench coats. To me, nothing is more classic and sophisticated than a great trench coat. I look for pieces with a special detail like the color-blocking in this version. What is your go-to Spring jacket?

Despite the recent snowstorm (in like a lion, right?), my fashion focus is on Spring, and the bright hue of these trousers injects the right touch of Springtime. Surprisingly, these blue pants are as versatile as they are audacious. In the spring, I will layer them with a chambray, scarf, and camel booties, and in the summer, I will opt for an easy tank and leather sandals. And did I mention they are ridiculously comfortable (much like this other favorite pair). How have you been adding a little much-needed Spring to your winter wardrobe?
