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!

Wear Now, Wear Later: The Maxi Dress

Wear Now, Wear Later: The Maxi Dress
Round two of the “Wear Now, Wear Later” series (read the first post here)… I chose a pretty, floral maxi dress from Michael Kors because it’s just so hard to resist the gorgeous Spring-inspired pieces hitting the stores now (and oh, did I mention it’s only $112! Link to purchase below). So if you gave in and purchased a flirty, floral dress (or even if you have been pulling one of your own closet to just look at and long over) here are some ways to get the most mileage out of your traditionally Springy dresses/skirts.
Look 1: One styling trick I love is to layer cozy knits over your favorite flowy dresses and skirts in the cooler months. (Because the skirt is long and loose, you can also add tights or leggings and no one will know… shh, our secret). Add an ankle bootie and a modern, chic army jacket to keep the look young and fresh.

Look 2: When the weather finally warms, ditch all those extra layers and let the dress speak for itself. Strappy sandals work best under a voluminous skirt and simple gold jewelry will add the right amount of glitz.
