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.

 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:

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.

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.

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.

There’s something about embroidered lace that gives off a carefree vibe. To give a boho touch to this edgy look, I teamed this light yellow top up with a pair of lace shorts that I scored at Saks Off 5th for $45! Love it.

Love neon? So do I. It’s still so hot this season. I’ve seen the bold hue on runways, celebrities and in pretty much every single store carrying a spring line. It’s not that difficult to rock – here’s how you do it:
