Time for Spring

Hope the weather cooperates

March is usually the time to switch your closet over from Fall/Winter to Spring/Summer for those of us in  the South and normally a transition time for those up North. Unfortunately our friends and family everywhere north of Atlanta are still suffering through the longest, coldest winter in years, but the Spring clothes are waiting in the stores, so I'm moving on....

Spring Trends 

There is a huge throwback to fashion trends from the past this Spring, especially the '90's. Many will feel like "been there- done that", but, of course there is a 21st century take on these trends. Creating your own sense of style means picking the trends that flatter your figure and lifestyle. Not everything is for everyone.  


Sleek and sophisticated and better for our backs and shoulders than the heavy shoulder strap bags we often carry.

                    Elizabeth and James  $545                 Tory Burch $285
                                                          Frye $428

Bomber jackets

The "IT" jacket this season has traditionally been a solid outerwear piece (think Members Only, if you are old enough), but it is now embellished, printed, in silks and tweeds for an unexpected new look. Wear it with skinny jeans and a button down or T or over your shoulders with a dress or slinky top for evening.

         Wendy Lace Jacket
                 Trina Turk on sale $148                                             Zara $79                                                                   

Floral Prints

If ever Spring brought flowers, this is it. Animal prints still persist, but florals in bold prints and soft artistic pastels abound.

                          Free People $128                                    Seven for All Mankind $198
                     Nanette Lepore  $398                                        Manilo Blanik  $685

Shirt Styling

The classic tailored shirt is back big in a variety of fabrics and lengths from cropped to tunic to dresses. White button downs worn white on white, with floral skirts, with black and white graphics and casual with jeans or dressed up for evening.

               Catherine Malandrino  $237                                      Robert Rodriguez $245

                                Vince$295                                                    Halston Heritage $375

Stay tuned for more trend updates and more old styles reinvented or just making a return for 2014- think white Keds and wide heeled mules- yes, really!!                                        

More coming soon...................
