I’ve been wearing tons of blue lately. You can probably tell from all my posts :p I’m not sure why but it’s kind of my go to color this spring! I love this swing dress from THML because it’s so cute, but I’m kind of obsessed with the little tiny animal print on the neckline! I also love this bring blue crossbody bag from Henri Bendel. I tend to go for bigger bags, but lately I’ve found that having a small bag is so much more convenient. If I have a big bag I take too many things with me. This is perfect for going out at night or running errands! I’m still gonna take my big bags to the movies so I can sneak treats in though :p
Hey guys, surprise! More florals! But I mean, look at this dress! It’s from Shop Jessa Kae and it’s the perfect spring or even Easter dress! Don’t miss out below, but we’re doing a little giveaway!
I’m also loving this dome satchel from Henri Bendel because they have the cutest spring colors!
Also I am slightly obsessed with these beautiful moonstone rings from MoonstoneMagic.com. They’re insanely gorgeous. I love the way they look, but they also have a special meaning. The Romans believed that Moonstone was formed from the moonbeam and that it bestows love, prosperity, victory and wisdom upon the possessor. Other legends claim that it contained the gifts of prophecy and clairvoyance. It is said that Moonstone could calm the mind and allow the wearer to gain wise thoughts, while keeping the heart and mind in sync. You can visit the Moonstone Blog to learn more!
If you hate florals, you’re going to hate me this spring. I love them! This print on this blouse from Tolani, takes it from a regular neutral to a statement piece! And I especially love the fringe ties as well! I also paired it with two of my other favorites trends: a mini bag and mules! I was hesitant to try mules at first because I’m short, but I love them! I think it elongates my legs a little bit more with the pointed toe. Of course, my mini bag is from Henri Bendel. I love the quality and the details that all their bags have!

Happy Friday Everyone!!!

I am a big fan of the ankle strap sandal trend right now. I have been searching for a great pair or two…maybe a neutral and a fun, bright color? I just can’t decide with so many fabulous styles out there. Maybe you guys can help me out? Here are a few of my favorites out there, for every price range! What do you think of the trend and my picks?
P.S. Here are a few tips to remember when wearing ankle straps
1. General rule: The thicker the strap, the slimmer your ankles look.
2. Avoid long skirts, because the strap and length of skirt tend to shorten your legs. DO pair with shorts and mini skirts. Also, a tight pencil skirt will work if it’s not too long.
3. Pairing with wide leg cropped pants and skinny ankle pants is a Do.
4. Too many embellishments on the sandal are distracting. Go for something simple. If you want to stand out, just try a bring color.
5. If you have large calves or ankles, nude is the most flattering color. If you have slim legs, add a thick strap to give your leg shape, but stay away from thick, chunky heels because it will just make your leg look skinnier and take away from the shape.
6. If you want to avoid making your legs look shorter, choose a strap that falls below the ankle as opposed to above it. (Along the same lines, go for a looser strap, or do not tighten it as much.)

Also I love this, but I cannot find any other picture except for these when Gwyneth Paltrow wore them, but they should be available for Fall 2013
This spring I really like the ‘spring boot’ trend. I like the casual, low ankle boot look, whether it’s with jeans, shorts, or ankle length pants.
Some of my favorite examples of this are here:
