How To Wear
This season, great foundation pieces make all the difference. Like this Milly dress. It’s comfortable and easy to wear. And it takes the pressure off of accessorizing. In fact, it screams for more blue + green goodness, such as these Alexis Bittar green hoop earrings and this blue croc handbag. I'm loving the neutral flatform with this outfit, keeping the style relaxed and summer ready.
If you love wearing blue and green but are unsure of how to wear the colors together initially, perhaps start with a simple formula: green handbag + blue scarf (or vice versa). Accessories make it easy to experiment if you’re wearing a neutral outfit. The key is not being afraid to play around with what’s in your closet. You may surprise yourself with the options you come up with!
When I revisited the charming Minneapolis home styled by Lisa Sherry Interieurs (as featured in Lonny mag), the perfect outfit popped into my head. Not only am I sharing the inspired ensemble, I also decided to put an official name to the series I have previously referred to, in one form or fashion, as 'How To Wear Your Home.' From this point on, the series will be called 'Wear That Room with CoS.'
Home décor should influence what you wear. The common thread (no pun intended) is creativity. Take this vignette ... the light + airy sofa (love the oversized check) with decorative pillows (houndstooth and floral). Look at what you can do with it!
The color palette and patterns work beautifully for an everyday look. Starting with this Zero+MariaCornejo tribal print dress. Fabulous! Paired with this Lotus clutch, Nicholas Kirkwood cutout booties and Laura James jewelry ... I am ready to wear it now!

Among all the fabulousness that is spring, one of the easiest ways to be a part of the season is by use of palette. With pink, orange and yellow front and center this season, there is much to celebrate! These colors were meant to be mixed together. And their partner in crime, coral, is happy to jump in and play along.
Taking three colors of the spring palette, I've created an outfit that envelops a season of fun and freedom. I have always been obsessed with floor length skirts, and this Jil Sander skirt is beyond cool. Paired with a simple white tee, accessorizing is a snap — hoop earrings, long necklace and cuff bracelet. Round it out with yellow sandals and an orange tassel handbag, and you're set!
Case in point: these fabulous high contrast horizontal striped walls! Bold, graphic, yet clean. Take this concept into your closet. With a dress so front and center, the accessories become easy. Mix in a few solid colors, such as a blue bangle, white earrings and green heels. Bring in texture with a straw clutch. It's that simple. And it's oh so good.
One of the easiest ways to pull in this aqua color is through accessories. Here are some fabulous pieces that will work into your wardrobe for most of the year.
