Designers can’t get enough of pastel palettes – they seem to have popped up everywhere this spring on the runways. Like the designers, I’ve kind of fallen in love with this sugary sweet trend too because it’s so timeless, feminine and easy to pair. Concerned you’ll look like the Easter Bunny? Don’t be. Since this is one of the few trends that can be worn head-to-toe in the same color, you can go for it and experiment with different textures and fabrics to give a classic yet sophisticated vibe.

Forget camo, safari chic is a trend that never goes out of style. It’s classic, durable and so easy to put together. It’s quite simple. Here’s how you can pull it off…


Ray of Sunshine

When choosing an outfit, I try to start with one piece and build from there. This look’s inspiration came from these neutral sandals, which were scored from Marshalls (another fav. store) for next to nothing. I paired them with a spring-like, flirty skirt from H&M and a bright, colorful top to exude South Florida style, and tied it all in with sunny accessories from Banana Republic and Francesca’s Collection.


Shorts Ahoy

Lace Top: Express $30/Shorts: J.Crew Outlet $30/Sandals: Steve Madden $79.95/Purse: Francesca’s Collection $34/Necklace: Forever 21 $10.80/Bracelets: Express & Charming Charlie $15-10/Earrings: Francesca’s Collection $14/Sunglasses: Francesca’s Collection $19

 Cruise into spring with a contemporary, nautical piece. It’s a great trend to invest in because it results in crisp and classic looks that you’ll be able to wear again and again. But use with caution; don’t go overboard – too many sailboats, navy and white hues paired with Sperry boat shoes will kill the look. Here’s how to keep it chic:


Bold and Brazen

I broke up this fiery, red pencil skirt with a mod, boxy cropped-top that’s trendy and bold. If the proportions are right, cropped tops can give the illusion of appearing taller than you actually are so definitely try to snag a couple this season. I love them.


Effortlessly Cool

Does your wardrobe have the blues? Looking for some jean inspiration? Stop by Gap and check out their ever-changing line of moderately priced, printed denim. I’m such a fan! These washed-out, faded jeans were scored for just $42 during one of their weekend sales. I unified the look with a roomy, sunshine-yellow, linen top from Forever 21 for $16 and paired it with some of my go-to, neutral accessories to place the emphasis on the print and to give off a laid-back vibe perfect for a Sunday afternoon.


Island Vibe

Island Vibe


Whether you’re strolling the strip on Collins Avenue in Miami or you’re ready to take off and touchdown near a beach, be sure to have a look that can easily transfer from poolside-chic to after-sunset. These tribal-printed pants team perfectly with this statement necklace that has hints of green in it – not to mention, how cute it would look contrasted against glowing skin. Pull it all together with an oversized, floppy hat, a clutch that will get the conversation going and coral polish.
