Flower Power

Blazer: Skies Are Blue. Tee: Splendid.  Jeans: Rich & SkinnyBelt: Forever 21 (similar here).  Shoes: Steven by Steve Madden (similar here).  Nail Polish: Essie.

Nothing says "spring" quite like floral... or pastels, or lightweight blazers for that matter.  Just the color combo alone on this blazer was enough to make us feel giddy!  It makes a perfect match when paired with these Gladiola color jeans by Rich & Skinny.  The color in the jeans really brings out the pink hues in the floral pattern.  And of course, nail polish sometimes has a way of making the perfect accessory statement with the right outfit.  In this case, our favorite spring polish shade (Mint Candy Apple by Essie) compliments the entire ensemble rather nicely!  We can't wait to wear this outfit on a sunny spring day.

Spring is in the air, and we can't think of a better way to celebrate than by wearing one of our favorite prints... floral!  No matter if you like your botanical prints oversized (such as Karen's pants) or small (like in Ali's dress), we can't resist their feminine charm.  We love floral paired with nudes and neutrals, as well as pastel hues that pick up the floral color detail.  Dresses, pants, shoes, scarves-- we love floral in all forms.  Stop and smell the roses, and make a statement in this favorite print.

Tuxedo Casual

Top: Urban Outfitters.  Jeans: Express.  Accessories: Forever 21 (necklace here & similar bracelet here).  Shoes: Jessica Simpson.  Beanie: Urban Outfitters.  Nail Polish: Essie Mint Candy Apple.  Sunglasses: Ray Ban.

Throw on your fancy tuxedo pants!  We're seeing tuxedo pants everywhere now... and we're loving their casual denim reincarnation, as seen in these Express jeansNope, this look isn't just for the boys, and not just for black tie affairs.  These jeans feature an ankle length, perfect for showing off some snazzy high heels.  Since blue denim pairs nicely with black & white, we loved adding this acid wash denim shirt from Urban Outfitters.  Accessorize with some chunky gold accents for polish.  Ali added a beanie to the look since, well, we love how a hat completes any look!

Spring Polish Picks


Spring is right around the corner, and our nails are ready!  We are loving these creamy pastel shades for nails, and picked our two favorite spring colors to share with you.  Mint (such as our selection from Essie) is one spring trend that we can't wait to start wearing.  And, you can't go wrong with a pastel pink, as seen in our pick from OPI.  If you're a nail painting DIY kind of girl (which we sure are) these white-based shades can be a little trickier to apply.  Slow and steady does it, and keep in mind that 2-3 coats are usually needed for these shades.  Generously apply top coat (we applied 2 coats!) to up the shine factor on cream colors. 

Speaking of top coat, thank you Cristina (Arizona State alumni) for sending in a reader's secret about Seche Vite top coat!  It's our favorite top coat too; our co-founder, Ali, swears by it.  Seche Vite dries in 5-10 minutes flat, which is pretty impressive.  Cristina added, "it also leaves a really glossy finish very similar to gel nail polish."  We agree!

What nail color are you excited to wear this spring?  Share your favorite colors below, we would love to discover some new nail polishes!

Maybe it's still a little chilly outside, but that doesn't stop us from craving a taste of spring's pastel confections!  This past weekend, we got together for a photo shoot, and braved the cold air for these springtime ensembles.  We can't wait to wear these pretty pastel & sorbet inspired colors all spring season long!  The maxi skirt length helps to carry you from the end of winter season, into springtime.  Which pastel hue are you most excited to wear this spring- mint, peach, lavender, or lime?

Contrast

Blazer: Thml Clothing (sold out, similar here and here).  Tee: Splendid.  Jeans: J Brand.  Hat: New Era.  Sunglasses: Ray Ban.  Shoes: Forever 21 (old, similar here).  Belt: Nordstrom (similar here).  Lipstick: Revlon Really Red.

Spring 2013 is white hot!  One of our favorite trends for the season is the classic black & white combo.  It's effortlessly chic, and looks extra polished when worn in the form of a structured blazer.  Black denim is one of our top staple items, as we talked about in the boho leopard post.  Wearing black and white together is a bold contrast that makes a statementBut, we wanted to make the look even more of a contrast.  We paired a grown-up piece (the blazer) with an unexpected piece (the hat).  With a personal touch, the outfit becomes your own!  What spring trend are you most excited to wear?

We also found a super cute white blazer from Boutique To You, which is perfect for this look!  Use our promo code SECRET15 for an extra 15% off of your purchase.
