What to wear: Spring Jackets

April 30, 2013

Oh man I LOVE  jackets. Got a whole closet full of them to back up that statement. As we ease into spring most days you need a light jacket to start the day. Happy to do that as long as the coats look like this.

I’m also loving the peplum trend. Emma Stone looks totally chic right?

I found a gorgeous Moschino one on Shopbob but at $1600 it might break the bank! I’m in search of acute versatile peplum jacket so if you come across one let me know.

Love this Michigan Lake house featured in House Beautiful. Designer Martin Horner left the predictable nautical design behind. Instead he treated the house with exotic patterns and beautiful textures and rich blue hues. The details are exquisite!

Are you missing Ms Mary MacDonald? She has some words of wisdom she shared with Ok! Magazine on how to transition your home from winter to spring.  I’m sooo rolling up my wool living room rug!

Incase you have missed it Kate Young, stylists to the stars, debuted  her clothing line for Target last week. It’s sleek and sultry with a girly flair. I picked up this dress in the black version. Think it will be a total staple in my wardrobe this summer!

What to wear: summer suits

April 24, 2013

Yes I know there is still a bit of snow on the ground here but swim suit season is right around the corner, so forgive me while I fast forward through spring here and start plotting my summer  swimwear. I can’t help but get excited with the throw back retro suits that Anthropologie has right now. They have unique patterns and slimming silhouettes. I love so many which one to pick!
