Currently every time I go shopping in the stores or online I am seeing lots of linen! Clearly a very summery style, but I didn't wear it much last year. I have been looking for a white pair of linen pants that fit nicely, and I still haven't found them! My closest buy was almost at J.Crew, but I thought I could maybe find ones I like better! If I find the perfect linen pant I'll be sure to let you guys know..but for now here are some linen things I love!
Rugby::Forever 21::Shopbop::Juicy Couture
The shoes might actually be my favorite because I don't commonly see linen wedges! I have the bow shorts in the middle row and absolutely love them, F21 what a steal!
Mary-Kate and Ashley. I love them both and especially their clothing line The Row. It launched in 2007 and is still expanding into more items today. It's very classic looking and perfect for any career. A lot of their pieces are very basic, but there is something unique about each one. It's a very solid collection, all in the same color range and style. It's sophisticated and clean cut, most definitely a luxury line. The two twins are such an inspiration when it comes to clothes. I personally love Ashley's a little bit more, it's more conservative while Mary-Kate's is very bohemian. The other picture is Brigitte Bardot! They're holding up her book in the first picture. She's a french model and actress who is also very iconic! Just had to include her pic:)
You can find The Row at Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys.
One of my favorite boutiques is called, Francescas Collections. I just found out about it a couple of years ago and it is becoming more popular and they have opened a bunch of new stores! For those of you who don't know what it is it's a usually a small store with lots of cute unique clothes, bags, shoes, accessories, and little gifts. It's a pretty girly store with lots of dresses and skirts in florals and bright colors. You can pretty much find anything in there for any occasion in a really good price range! Almost everything is under $50. Here are a few of my favorite spring florals from there!
There are lots more at http://www.francescascollections.com/ !
This week #1 on Vogues list for Transitional women goes to..Blake Lively! My absolute favorite style icon! There is nothing about her I don't love. This year I went to Teen Vogue's Fashion University where Anna Wintour even called Blake Lively the fashion icon of our generation. It may seem like her character Serena just has amazing fashion, but so does she. I am OBSESSED with Gossip Girl and would die for their wardrobes. However, Blake's closet is definitely just as good.THE BEST. I just found a few pictures from blakelivelyweb.com that are some recent candids, in Paris! Of course.
Here is a picture at Teen Vogue Fashion U 2010. I wasn't too close but you can still see Anna!
Blake on the Cover of Vogues Best Dressed issue. For being such a young women it's amazing to see how big of an icon she has become.
I was browsing through the Marc Jacobs website today and came across some pictures from his spring fashion show. His newest collection is all bright stripes, typical for spring, but it's a classic trend. Paired with the right clothes can definitely change it up. I personally love striped tanks tucked into white jeans with a skinny brown belt.

All for under $30, I just threw in the bag even with a solid cropped tee and a striped bag, throwing in some stripes is a perfect accent.
I recently received an internship that's devoted to the idea of preppy. The classic chino short in bright colors and the typical seersucker's. Even though my closet doesn't really consist of preppy clothes, it's more trendy, I am slowly learning to love the preppy look! Of course there was the time five years ago when we were all in love with the polo...Anyways, here are a few things I found online, mixed with a few things I actually bought today. J. Crew is definitely the best place to look, all things preppy.
J.Crew::Vineyard Vines::Lacoste::Ann Taylor Loft
Just a start to the collection, I also plan on checking out Ralph Lauren Rugby and Lily! Here is Preppy on the runway wearing Ralph Lauren. Can't get much preppier than that.
I couldn't help but adding some Luella, even if it's not Spring 2011. The bow did it for me.
The Sperry Top-Sider, being around since 1935 and still being worn today by so many I would say definitely makes them classic. Ranging in all different colors and styles they can be worn with just about everything. There are so many other brands now, doing different spins on them. I just bought a navy blue pair from Dexter. Here are a few others:
I know this was a blog on boat shoes...but while looking at some online I came across these Kate Spade wedges and automatically fell in love with them...had to share!
The first time I saw girls wearing rompers I absolutely hated them. Since last summer I never thought I would say I actually love them now! I used to imagine them just for the runway. From cotton to silk or florals to solids they're perfect for spring. I love when they're worn with cardigans, belted, or both! The more I see them the more they are growing on me. Here are just a few recent ones I found online:
Victoria' Secret:: F21:: Shopbop -Shoshanna and Sachin + Babi Romper
My favorites are definitely the ones from www.shopbop.com, they're a little pricey, but Forever 21 of course carries them under $30
So I'm new at the blogging thing, but I've been addicted and can't get enough of them! I decided I wanted to start my own and share my love of clothes, shoes, and accessories with everyone else. I can't wait to get this started.
Today was the first warm day on campus and I couldn't help but get excited to start wearing all my spring clothes. Here's just a few things I've had my eye on.
Yellow Striped Shoes:: American Eagle, High Wasted Navy Shorts:: F21. Ruffle Sleeve Tee:: Free People, Pieced Leather Bag:: Free People, Head Wrap:: F21
