This week’s style picks

The past few months have been a whirlwind and i’m finally getting the chance to sit down and blog again.  I’m going to jump right back into the blogosphere by letting you know the 10 things I am obsessed with right now.

The first thing on my radar is this Charles Henry Skirt.  I love the design and it reminds me of my beloved BCBG Elsa Skirt but in a spring/summer kind of way.  I NEED this skirt in my life, but I will wait for the Bloomingdales Friends & Family Sale.

Next up is the BCBG Malisa Dress.  I tried this on the other day and I cannot wait  for the weather to warm up so that I can have an excuse to wear this.  I really want to find a Leather Bralette or Bustier to pair with it, let me know if you see any cute ones.

I took a stroll through Nordstrom’s shoe department the other day and the Dolce Vita Niro Sandals caught my eye.  I decided that these will be my “summer shoe”.  I tried them on and they seem comfortable and true to size.  I  can envision them with so many outfits in spring and summer.  Now I just have to wait for them to go on sale…

These Overalls are so badass.  I found them after having a vision of some kind of boyfriend jean/overall hybrid.  The One Teaspoon Awesome Overalls in Cobain are just perfect.

I’ve been on the hunt for a Bonnet Dryer for years, but I never got around to buying one.  Bonnet dryers are great for roller-sets and deep conditioning.  I watched Andrea’s Choice Monthly Favorite’s video where she talked about the Laila Ali Ionic Soft Bonnet Hair Dryer.  It has great reviews on Amazon and the price it right, so I should be getting one of these pretty soon.

This Cable-knit Cropped Sweater from H&M is great. I would pair it with a silk maxi skirt like this one, and you can also achieve a similar look with this.

This CATHERINE STEIN Faux Pearl Bauble Necklace from Lord & Taylor is divine.  This would be perfect with a White Button Down or a Pastel Colored Blazer and a blouse.  It should get a nice markdown, so I will be waiting patiently until then.

I’ve decided that I need a pair of pointed toe white heels to wear with all my spring outfits.  I’m torn between the Charles by Charles David ‘Pact’ Pump and the Zara Leather High Heel Shoe with a Buckle. Which one is your favorite?

I need a blouse-y white polyester-ish top to wear under my blazers.  The Wilfred Nuit Blouse from Aritzia fits the bill.  Hopefully it will be in my closet one day.

And then there’s the Luxe Pastel Bib Necklace.  I saw something similar on Tumblr years ago and I searched everywhere trying to find it to no avail.  Then I noticed that the exact same necklace was available here recently.  It’s on sale and I can get an additional 25% off, so I should probably go ahead and buy it. AND it will go together perfectly with all the pastel and white i’m planning to wear this spring.

I took these “new to me” Monika Chiang pumps out for a spin the other day.  I LOVE thrift and consignment shops in NYC because everything is designer.  I found these heels while I was shopping at INA during my most recent trip to NYC, and they were 90% less than retail! #winning

My Top 5 picks from BCBG’s spring trend event

Bcbg’s spring trend event is upon us.  The spring trend event showcase’s the brands new spring collection.  You can get and extra 20%+ off off all full price items. Here are a few pieces that I have my eye on….
I adore the Malisa Dress because the styling possibilities are endless.  I love the way that BCBG paired it with a Leather Bralette in their Street Art Styling Video.  I would also wear this with a White Blazer & the White Simone Power Skirt or some Black Leather Skinny’s and some badass open toe booties like these, from ALDO.

I’ve been obsessing over the Kenzi Romper. As a fashion enthusiast I feel like all the clothes I’ve come across have been seen before and I don’t see unique pieces often.  I think the Kenzi Romper is one of those rare unique pieces.  It’s a basic black romper with a sheer chiffon maxi skirt overlay.  It can be dressed up or down you can wear it on a night out, brunch, or for a tropical getaway.

I bought the BCBG Elizabeth Dress over a month ago when it first came out and it is becoming one of my most worn clothing items.  I wore it the other day with a leather jacket, a Black waist belt, open toe booties, and a bold red lip.

The power skirt is a wardrobe essential.  Spring is the perfect season to add the White Simone Power Skirt to your collection.  I would pair this with a Pastel Colored top or blazer and it pairs with with my final pick the BCBG Kamryn Blazer.

When I first laid eyes on Kamryn it just looked like a boring old blazer.  But then I tried it on and it was anything but boring.  It’s classy and sophisticated.  You could wear it with the matching pants to work or for a dinner date by using it to balance out a less conservative item like the Simone Power Skirt.
