I am so over the cold. Have I said that too many times on a Friday Fashion post? Maybe it’s because I want to light every sweater and pair of boots in my closet ON FIRE right now. I’m so sick of everything. I’m actually pondering doing a cut throat closet clean-out (like, a Marie Kondo-on-steriods kind of edit) before springtime and either having a big tag sale at my office to raise money for charity or something. What do you guys think?

Anyways, even though I know I wouldn’t be able to wear a lot of this until spring, I partnered with longtime EOS supporter Halsbrook for a post today in which I styled five springtime outfits that would make me very happy to wear.  Classic, Audrey-Meets-Jackie- Meets-Kate Middleton kind of outfits, which is what I think if when I think of Halsbrook.  Plus they are currently having their Friends & Family sale so everything is 20% off (except for those notated with a * which are part of their Essentials Collection)! So if you live in warmer climates, congrats to you for being smarter than me, and you can probably rock these right now!  For those of us suffering in our dirty puffy coats and Uggs— there is hope. There is always hope.

Also, this took me like 5 hours and I’m burnt out so I don’t have much more to say on the  matter…. :)

Fashion Friday: Pretty in Pastel (& How to Wear It)

Pastels are HOT HOT HOT right now and while they are the perfect palette for spring, they can be intimidating to wear.  Without the right style or mixing pastels can go VERY “I’m off to go see the Easter bunny”.  Which is cute when you are 4, not so much when you’re 40.  Darker complexions look radiant in these tones, but paler folks need to make sure they pick the right shades to compliment their coloring and avoid looking washed out.

That said, done right, pastels are uplifting and crisp and a totally beautiful palette to wear.

Fashion Friday: Floral Frenzy

Florals are ALLLLLLLL the rage right now (I’d say this extends to interiors too, actually!) From Gucci to Gap, floral prints are an essential for spring. (I know, I know–“Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.”) Here’s a roundup of some floral items I think are pretty fun and fab. I like my floral prints with a heavy dose of black usually, to keep them from feeling too 80’s Laura Ashley.
