So Hot Right Now: Sneakers.

The trend that just keeps on going? Juxtaposition. It’s been a long run for the dressed up and down look of sweatpants and heels or suits and sneakers. Lucky for those who think ‘fashion should be comfortable’, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. This means it’s actually in to wear your sneakers outside of the gym!

I’m certainly a heels girl but I’m trying out these Nike Flyknit trainers and have been lusting over this Adidas pair.

Check out my older post ft. a platform version and some sneaker street style to inspire your next look:

 

The Spring Coat.

Although New England is currently suffering from freezing temperatures, I have completely switched gears to full-on spring mode and so has my closet. If you ask me, a spring wardrobe isn’t complete without a reliable coat. This one from Zara has been my go-to for a few seasons. It’s the perfect weight, length and color. Pastels certainly tiptoe the line of too predictable and festive this time of year, (“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.”) but paired with the classic jeans and tee combo, it can be extremely wearable for an every day outfit.

The Camel Uniform.

Camel has certainly become my most loved color to wear. It’s versatile, luxurious and utilitarian for on-the-go wardrobes. So it only makes sense that some of my closet staples are this lovely shade of brown, like the well-renowned J. Crew cocoon coat and this fitted pencil skirt. Platform sneakers, like the ones I’m wearing, are (still) a hot commodity, taking any formal outfit from office wear to street chic.

The simplest way to channel the 70’s trend this spring is with a jumpsuit. If you’re shopping for one this season, look for a fitted torso and a straight or flared pant a la Farrah Fawcett for maximum (disco diva) effect. A serious plus here is the blush color that makes an otherwise retro garment a modern, perfect-for-spring outfit. For those of you who know about my cowhide obsession, this leather and white calf hair bag was the perfect vacation find. Throw on some wedges and you’re good to go!

Currently Coveting: Double Buckle Belt.

asosb-low the belt

I know, I know, the hype over this Western style belt is nothing new. Cool-girl celebrities like Shay Mitchell, Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner have been sporting them since last fall…

But the good news is that I’m still loving them and the Western Wear trend, including suede and fringe, isn’t going anywhere. I.E. there’s still time to get your hands on your own and wear it with your summer looks.

Currently Coveting: Fringe City Sandals.

Let it be known: I avoid kitten heels like the plague. They say ‘never say never’, but I will NEVER wear kitten heels. So here I am, shocked that I’m obsessing over the city sandal (a short, block heel perfect for summers in the city and cousin of the kitten heel). Granted, they aren’t exactly the same, but we’ll just call them… sensible. Maybe it’s the fringe and lace-ups that’s pulling at my heart strings, but these shoes rock.
