Springtime Crushes

We had a little taste of Springtime here in the Atlanta area here recently, and it really got me to thinking about spring trends and my spring wardrobe and what updates I might like to make.

Some of these are not new or original, but are patterns, trends, and accessories that I am crushing on this springtime!

Florals 

Florals for spring isn’t exactly ground-breaking information, but rather sort of a given, but I am not normally a florals kind of gal.

Crushing on more abstract and super vibrant versions of springs hottest, and most timeless, trend.

Rebecca Embroidered Top

Stunning and fresh!

The Rebecca Embroidered Top by Eva Franco. And I love the black piping and the back is solid black as well. A very slimming and classic silhouette.

And finally, the Terrarium Pleated Maxi Skirt? So lust-worthy and absolutely beautiful!

And who doesn’t love a good maxi skirt? One of my favorite spring and summer staples. Slap on a fitted tank or tee, an easy denim jacket, and a great pair of sandals are you are off for an afternoon of fun in the sun!

Jade Hued Jewelry 

Ever heard of “spring green?” Make everyone “green with envy” with these spring-hued fun accessories!

Simple & perfect elegance is encapsulated in the Elys Necklace from one of my favorite jewelry designers, Judith Bright.

The stone proudly on display is a Serpentine. (Comes in a variety of stones) Think this would look just lovely layered with other gold necklaces.

Embroidered 

Embroidery is everywhere this season! And it’s all about the extra details on spring and summertime classics.

A beautiful, classic Embroidered Top in Cotton Voile just perfect for springtime!

Even jeans are getting in on the action…

Lightweight Kimonos 

In spring & summertime, I practically live in jeans, chinos, tanks, and a lightweight cardigan or kimono. Dress them up, dress them down, they are practically perfect in every way!

Favorite Winter Accessories

Y’all.

It is one of the more consistently chilly winters here in the Deep South that I can remember for a long, long time. And, I for one, (and I seriously may be the only one) don’t mind it one bit! I have said it once, and I will say it again, some part of me thinks I should have been born in a colder state a *bit* further North, or maybe it’s just because for my job, I travel largely throughout the Midwest and Northeast and I love the seasonality of four distinct seasons.

And the snow we got for 3 whole days in December?

Absolute Heaven!

I wrapped up in my UGA Snuggie, cranked up the little space heater, put together a puzzle, and read an entire book! It was bliss.

So, in honor of this winter season, I am sharing some of my very favorite cold weather, wintry accessories. Because “foul” weather is simply no excuse not to look and feel your best!

Glacia Knit Beret, $29.95

Glacia Knit Beret

The perfect blend of color, texture, and cozy. Very contemporary and chic! And, you can wear it as the model does above like a traditional French beret, or pull down lower as a beanie. Very versatile!

I’m a HUGE fan of the <slightly> over-sized, cozy boyfriend cardigans that are all-the-rage this season. I literally live in mind right now!

Here are a few of my favorites. Pair over your favorite jeans and either a T shirt or button-up for a comfortable, casual, and ultra-warm & cozy look!

Roccia Ruffled Cardigan by Moth, currently on sale for $69.00

Rocia Ruffled Cardigan

I love the undone sophistication of this cardigan, plus the muted mauve hue. Plus, it’s dressy enough to wear to work, but casual enough to dress down with jeans and sneaks. Love it paired with a fitted, long sleeve striped or graphic tee.

Lightweight Long Open-front Cardigan Sweater from JCrew for $88.00

A great and versatile duster! Comes in three colors, but I have to say, I am partial to the Frosty Olive.

Yum! A gorgeous neutral.

Colorblocked Wool Cardigan, $158

Colorblocked Wool Cardigan

A gorgeous chunky knit sweater/ blazer style jacket just perfect for this season! I love that it is elegantly color-blocked and fashioned after men’s wear. The sleeves are slightly belled and the pockets are just so stinking cute!

Faux-Fur Collared Cardigan, $129.95

Faux Fur-Collared Cardigan

The ultimate way to elevate a simple, cozy cardigan? Add some fur! It immediately elevates this overall look, and I am in love with it!

Echo Touch Tech Gloves, from Nordstrom for $23.40 (currently 40% off and also come in Black)

Echo 'Touch - Zip Bouclé' Tech Gloves

I personally own a pair of Echo Touch Tech gloves and I am a big, big fan! They are uniquely created to insulate and maintain warmth from within AND, very important, can be warn while using all touch-screen Tech accessories. No need to take your gloves off when making an all-important Instagram post in negative temps!

Striped Cape-Scarf, from JCrew for $39.50

The perfect blend of two of my very favorite winter accessories- capes & scarves! It’s a gorgeous, over-sized blanket scarf with arm holes… Hello versatility!

Or maybe you are feeling a classic Plaid instead?

Got you covered! Literally…

And, of course, there is everyone’s favorite winter material… cashmere! It’s ultra luxurious and instantly warm.

Two-tone Scarf in Everyday Cashmere, currently on sale for $61.99 (that’s over 50% off regular price!)
