Top: Bella Luxx (on sale!), Skirt: Bella Luxx (on sale!), Jacket: Similar here, Purse: Madewell, Sunglasses: TOMS (on sale!), Bracelet: Gorjana, Shoes: Keds, Earrings: Madewell (on sale!)  When I think of spring, I can't help but think of pastels, floral prints and twirly skirts and dresses. This season always brings out my feminine side when it comes to fashion, which is a nice transition from the heavier pieces I usually wear throughout winter. There's such an ease to this breezy tank and flowy skirt combination, and while I love a pair of skinny jeans, I'm happily hanging up my denim in favor of lighter options like this. I'll...

Falling For Suede

Leather jacket: Trouve (similar here, here & here), Tank: Alexander Wang, Skirt: ASOS, Boots: Steve Madden (similar here & here), Purse: Forever 21, Bracelet: Madewell, Lipstick: Revlon in "Plum Velour" I talked about transitioning your wardrobe over to fall in this post, and this suede skirt is another great example of a piece that seamlessly shifts from summer to fall. It's a style that works with any season, but the warm, earthy tone and suede material feel especially right for autumn. Glamour magazine even referred to it as "Fall 2015's Most Versatile Trend," and I couldn't agree more. I paired mine with a light leather jacket and ankle boots for more...

Denim jacket: Zara (similar here & here), Top: Express, Skirt: Theory (on sale!), Shoes: French Connection, Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Bracelets: Madewell & Gorjana, Necklace: Gorjana If there's a season that inspires me to wear color, it's summer. But when I need a break from summer's bright colors and prints, I head back to my comfort zone of neutrals. I love how seamlessly the earthy tones blend together, and the combination always feels effortless. Plus, these colors safely stand the test of time. In this case, I love how the subtle asymmetry of this wrap skirt lends a modern touch to a classic look. I'm always impressed by...

Shirt: Madewell, Skirt: ASOS, Purse: J.Crew, Sandals: ASOS (similar here), Sunglasses: TOMS, Bracelets: Forever21 Back in high school I was obsessed with denim skirts (namely those from Abercrombie & Fitch), which, of course, had to be fashionably paired with Ugg boots. Like most trends, though, they were replaced with something new, and even I was happy to retire them. But they started popping up everywhere this spring, returning with all kinds of variations, which is making me love them all over again. I picked this one up a few weeks back (last worn here), but wanted to get one that felt even more casual...

Denim On Denim

Shirt: Similar here & here, Skirt: Current/Elliott (available here & similar style here), Purse: Similar here, Sandals: Mia Cruise (on sale), Necklace: Gorjana There was definitely a time where denim on denim, aka the "Canadian Tuxedo," was seriously frowned upon (Justin and Britney circa 2001, anyone?) Fortunately it's come a long way since then, returning in a more fashionable form. The trick to pulling it off is to mix different shades and fabrics. To avoid looking too matchy matchy, I paired this denim pencil skirt with a lighter blouse that resembles chambray, but is actually soft rayon. Not only is there an obvious distinction in color, but the weight of the materials differ as well, helping to...
