Raise your hand if you wore a satin bomber jacket in the late '70s while you roller-skated at the local rink. Guilty! The bomber jacket is back (sans rainbow elastic) and hotter than ever with street style mavens and celebrities sporting the look, which pairs beautifully with the current "wear-your-sneakers-with-everything" sporty trend. There's one for everyone at all different price points, so if you can't afford to shell out the big bucks for a work-of-art bomber jacket by Alexander McQueen, no worries because Topshop and other brands have several different versions of this oh-so-popular style. Plus, since the ...Read more.
Like the rest of the fashion-loving free world, I am obsessed with the off-the-shoulder (aka cold-shoulder) top this season. This one I found by Rebecca Taylor is my favorite right now for several reasons: 1. the shoulder can be worn up or down, 2. it doesn't gap in the front when I bend over, 3. it's flowy and doesn't wrinkle like the cotton ones (plus I hate ironing), 4. I love the bow detail in the back, and 5. it's the most gorgeous, vivid shade of pink which is universally flattering and makes for the prettiest pictures. I am wearing it for day with shorts, and night with jeans and heels for my next girls' ...Read more.

Culottes are one of the biggest trends this season, and when I saw this style it was love at first sight. The cutout design makes them dressier and special, while the white denim keeps them more casual and down to earth. Just remember with the wide cropped leg, chunky shoes are a must to maintain balance and proportion. No stilettos here! These rainbow wedges are perfect, or I'm also pairing them with white, thick-soled sneakers. This perfect-fit jersey tee is simple, letting the culottes take center stage, and the pendant ties the wedges back in to increase this look's '70s appeal. ...Read more.
While parts of the country are still having snow (sorry!), spring is alive in Arizona where it's gorgeous and in the 90s this week. I have packed up everything remotely wintery and am reveling in all the new looks for spring. A few of my favorite trends are butterflies (on everything from handbags and shoes to dresses and jewelry - love!), the new cropped denim and lace-up sandals. All of which I have incorporated into my look. A white button-down provides the perfect canvas to set off these styles and they dress up a basic that I already had in my closet. ...Read more.
