Expect Emerald Green to be popping up all over the place this year, including in seasonal collections by top cosmetic, interior, and fashion industries. Even celebrities like Rhianna, Michael Kors, Vivienne Tam, and Kate Middleton have been trying out this ‘gem’ of a color recently!

Do you plan on trying out Pantone’s Emerald Green in your style this year?

Spring Fashion

Springtime is officially here! While it still may not feel like it, warmer weather is definitely on the way! This past weekend, it was a beautiful 80 degrees in Charleston so I definitely need to start steering clear of the sweaters and breaking out my new spring favorites.

I would definitely call this a transition season outfit. Throw a sweater or cardigan over a nice bright dress to make any day, whether it be casual or busy, a stylish one. Riding boots can definitely last you into the spring on those colder days to dress up an more casual dress. Also, Jack Rogers or wedges do the job well too. I am also a huge fan of belted dresses. The coral color of this dress is absolutely perfect for spring and the gold jewelry perfectly accessorizes the outfit.

This outfit can be for work, class or even a girls night out or a date! The dark skinny jeans with the cute neutral wedges are a perfect transition into spring. I love the green color of the tank and am always looking for shirts in bright colors like this because they standout and make any outfit look that much better. The Tory Burch earrings are maybe a tad over the top, but any gold earrings would look fabulous with such an outfit. Kate Spade’s earrings are to die for, so check them out! The Tory Burch purse is so cute and the cross body is key to this outfit. I am definitely adding this to my next wishlist. Also, it matches the beautiful orange and gold bracelet perfectly.

This outfit is the perfect spring day outfit. This white top is adorable and I love the neckline and the gold embroidering. So many stores, from American Eagle to the Gap to Bloomingdales have variations of this simple shirt. Plus I love white blouses in the summertime, especially with bright shorts! I love coral, so the chino shorts (from J.Crew!) totally make me think of summer. Gold sandals are a staple in any summer wardrobe. A professional tote bag can be used with any outfit at any time of day-for class, going to lunch, out at night, or even for an interview! I also have a thing for themed charm bracelets, and this gold beach charm bracelet is definitely on my wish list.

Springtime is the best time for new clothes, a new wardrobe, and pairing together old pieces in new ways. Accessorize with bright colors, buy versatile tops that go with everything (shorts, jeans, white pants, skirts), focus on dresses because they make anyone look dressier, and find perfect summer shoes!

With Spring just beginning, it’s a great time for us to restart and power through those last few weeks of school. I have about seven weeks of classes left. So take a night to recharge, recuperate, and relax. Then plow through the final weeks of the year right into summer. It may be rough at times, but I’m positive that y’all can handle it and then enjoy a great summer!

Popovers!

Like Christine mentioned yesterday, it’s still snowy and cold in lots of different places. However, today is the first day of spring! That means that sunny days, flowers, and warmer weather are right around the corner!

One thing I am loving this spring is J.Crew Factory’s popover shirts in Oxford and chambray. They are perfect for nearly any occasion. Throw one on with jeans, shorts, or a skirt and you’re instantly polished but still so comfy. You can even use it as a coverup for days at the beach! (I wish I was there now…)

However you choose to style yours, have fun with it 🙂

What are you loving this spring?

Snow Again?!

With a lovely new season about to start in a few days, I’m sure I’m not the only one who is coming down with a case of “spring fever”. I cannot wait for sunny days, spring-time flowers popping up all over the place, and of course, warm-weather fashion! Although… Mother Nature seems to have other plans (depending on where you live, of course). More snow! Karoline and I have experienced a couple of hard core blizzards this semester at our university in Massachusetts, and we just got hit with another snow storm last night!

Has your town turned into a winter wonderland over night? Are you stuck with a delay or ‘snow-day’ from school? Take advantage of the time off and make the best of this snowy weather with some of these fun things to do indoors!

St. Patrick’s Day!

As a grandchild of Irish immigrants and being 100% Irish, I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day more than any other day of the year! I grew up outside of New York City with my Irish family so I would always be allowed to skip school on March 17 and head into NYC to march in the big parade! It was always the best time, getting to be with my family and celebrating our heritage and of course finishing the whole day off with a glorious Irish meal of Corned Beef and Cabbage! But, finding green to wear was always troublesome, so here are some of the best St. Patrick’s Day outfit ideas!

Old Navy Scores

I’ll be the first to admit that I am SO excited for spring to roll around…shorts, skirts, dresses, short sleeves, no sweaters?  Sign me up!  Old Navy is one of those stores that is either hit or miss…sometimes they have super cute things at affordable prices and sometimes they’re just way out in left field with their styles.  I am happy to report that for this spring, Old Navy has some awesome pieces!

Old Navy Scores
As you can see, Old Navy has stepped up it’s game and put out some super cute tops for the spring.  And you don’t want to miss those capris…they have embroidered anchors on them!  Always check the Old Navy website before you head to the store because you can usually print out a coupon, and if you see something you like snatch it up quickly!  They change out their stock extremely frequently!
Happy shopping!

Spring Has Sprung-Nail Polish Style

Spring does not officially start for another ten days, but here in Boston it is over 50 degrees, and what says Spring more than that? Along with purses, shoes, and jewelry, Spring also marks a time to change everyone’s favorite accessory, Nail Polish! Along with some great new collections, I wanted to show you my go-to favorite colors for Spring. These are perfect for those days where you may be longing for warmer weather, but it’s still too chilly for sundresses and sandals. I’m sure that these shades will put you right in the mood for the perfect Spring day!

Business Casual

Since last Thursday, I have attended a Leadership Conference in Washington D.C., dressed up for a Phi Sigma Sigma sorority chapter meeting, had a job interview, and tomorrow I’ll be spending my day at Jury Duty! Needless to say, over the last six days, ‘business casual’ outfits are all I’ve been wearing. I love getting dressed up, and all of these excuses to do so have allowed me to get a lot of use out of all my skirts, khakis, dresses, and dress pants, and create some cute, professional outfits! Need help getting your ‘business casual’ look together? Check out my favorite combinations below!
