Bloom Baby Bloom!

The trees and tulips shouldn’t be the only things in bloom right now…your style should be too! We have just entered into the 4th month of what seems to be a year of colorful patterns. Up here in New England, the (mostly) warm weather and flowery landscape has us with a head start on the age old proverb, “April showers bring May flowers.” With weather like this, who wants to wait until May to see flowers? Especially since most of them are out right now. So set your style in full-bloom with some phenomenal floral fashions. Some of my favorite flowery finds are featured below. I am not the biggest fan of the TOMS trend, but how cute would #5 be with a pair of jeans and a pink t-shirt? As a bonus, for every pair of shoes you purchase, TOMS will give one pair to a child in need. Since classy girls love giving back, get a pair and give a pair with TOMS! On another note, everyone in Connecticut knows umbrellas are a necessity for the month of April, so brighten up the sunless sky with #12! And remember, you can always find similar looks for less or you can even get creative and craft your own pieces. Hit up the fabric store this month, #9 would be a really fun project for any rainy day!

Be Mine, Saint Valentine

A certain sultry red and hot pink holiday is less than a month away. A holiday that some love…and others loathe. No matter what your personal feelings are, hearts, x’s and o’s, red, and all hues pink will be taking over from now until February 14th. So if you find yourself wandering about the avenues of Manhattan, definitely stop by Dylan’s Candy Bar and Ladurée for some sexy and sweet treats. As always, Victoria’s Secret and Hanky Panky are classic go-to brands for all your lingerie needs. Even a simple heart-inspired accessory like a pair of shades, pumps, scarf, tote bag or earrings is sure to attract a secret admirer or two. And if you have no plans, no problem! There is no sense sulking when you can always watch Valentine’s Day with your friends or sorority sisters while doing nails and devouring yummy chocolates. Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxo
