Topshop for Nordstrom

Let’s take a moment to praise the fashion Gods, Kate Moss for Topshop has arrived at Nordstrom. I know that is a lot of names in one sentence, but it is all the right ones. Kate Moss has teamed up again with Topshop, a big (and decently priced) retailer from England, to bring you a new collection. Better news, Nordstrom is selling it too. And don’t forget the rest of the regular Topshop collection…

One of my absolute favorites from the collection are these wide leg pants. Prints for the bottom half are trending this season so they add a perfect pop to your summer look. Wide leg is hard to pull off if you are under 5’6″, so just add a small (or big) wedge for some height.

And, if it ever actually gets warm here on the east coast, I am buying this bright orange two-piece. LOVE. I have a small chest (very happily, thank you!), but the T-strap caged back provides a lot of support for the bigger busted gals. Now I just need a tan…

I just don’t know about the skort phenomenon. I suck at tennis, so where am I wearing this thing?? If you are down with this (I allow you to be), then you can be tennis chic in this color , black, red, or white. Buying all 4 colors is not permitted :)

Yes to this jacket. I know that this is a huge trend and it literally seems like everyone owns one (especially in NYC and LA), but there is a reason. It works…With everything. And you can bunch it up and leave in your bag as a layering piece, it is not just an outdoor jacket!!!

I love a good maxi dress. They are comfortable, chic and easy. Need I say more? The only issue is length. Like any long dress, expect tailoring if you are below 5’6″. The good news is for for all you tall ladies, this piece is your friend. There is usually length to spare…Did anyone catch those shoes?? Just say NO to trendy birkenstocks. Seriously??

So now there is no excuse for not looking fabulous for the right price. You can travel to Topshop (there is one in NYC, come say hi to me!), Nordstrom (they are all over) or just hop online. You will look like Kate Moss in no time…

Pastels for Summer. Groundbreaking!

Yes. that is sarcasm in case you didn’t get it. But honestly folks, some trends are really just here forever. This apparently makes them more like staples of your wardrobe, welcome pastels. pastels 1Straight from the runway, these sophisticated yet pretty looks are ready for the taking. If these looks were in dark colors the vibe would be completely different. Using a pastel palette makes everything well, pretty. Soften your look instantly.

 If you want something to wear to work that won’t be your typical boring black pant, try these wisteria colored cropped pants with scalloped pockets from J. Crew. The color isn’t too bright, but it still adds something fun to your work wardrobe.

 Trends from the runway always trickle down to major retailers. Take this peach sheath dress from the Limited for example. If paired with the right accessories, you can make it look super expensive for work or a bridal shower. Simple and easy, sheath dresses can be styled in endless ways making them a great staple for anyone’s wardrobe. Check out the Limited for an entire pastel collection!!

 For super cute casual weekend attire, these J Brand skinny jeans in coral are great for shopping or running errands. Paired with a basic white T, this is a simple yet chic look for spring. Warning: You kind of look like you have no pants on. I own these and I look naked on the bottom half in pictures! Positive: You pick up lots of men :)

pastels 5My best girlfriend Rebecca Minkoff made this lovely bag, Ok, maybe we don’t know each other personally, but many of her pieces reside in my closet because they are awesome. The pastel color makes it pretty, the hardware makes it edgy, my favorite combo. It is the perfect pop of pastel to any spring look. Just this one piece for $295 will get you into the trend!

Not to keen on pastels? Just add one piece and you will be the belle of the spring ball!
