spring ahead

While much of the eastern seaboard is under a plush blanket of snow, those of us in California, namely LA, have been enjoying weeks and weeks of unseasonably balmy and dry weather--the result of an unprecedented high pressure system hovering over us. Which may explain why I am already thinking about my spring must-haves. Many of them are inspired by the season's biggest trends: floral prints, vivid Crayola hues, lots of lace, embellishment, sporty tailoring, and wearable art. So far, I've got my heart set on this festive boho-chic floral maxi, this front-row-ready Peter Pilotto, and this painterly print shift dress. You know how much I love lace, and if I could, I would no doubt invest in this Chloe head-turner. I'm certain I'd get a lot out of this versatile convertible cream coat (a fresh take on the trench!). For spring nights out, I'd love to breeze around in this Saturday hot coral trapeze top, this ruffled Isabel Marant, this bold-hued Dolce Vita and this sexy cut-out Asos. And when I'm kicking around on weekends, it's highly likely you'll find me in this floral Joie mini, this embroidered J.Crew tunic and these already-all-the-rage Newbark slides (i.e., the sandal style of the season!)

I know what you mean...I posted my fave gladiator sandals on the blog today and then remembered that pretty much only my Southern CA readers are thinking about sandals right now! =)
