If this doesn't make you smile on a cold and rainy day, I don't know what will. Of course, on a warm and sunny day I'd be over the moon wearing this.

Thank you GEM for bringing us this music notes embellished crepe dress in vibrant yellow. Paired with the green tie-up sandals makes it an easy sell.

Having had a taste of warm temperatures in early April, anything below 60 is just wrong. It chills to the core. With cashmere already put away, it's back to layers. And I have no issue layering over this dress. Think white linen jacket.

My favorite trend this season happens to be one of my all-time favorite staples — the white dress.

Timeless. Yet, evolving each spring.

With length playing a major role this season, you can count on everything being easy and versatile in the dress department. 

And don't be afraid to go high contrast with black sandals, a black handbag or dark jewelry.

Whether you choose a long, midi or short dress, it's white all the way.

Folk-inspired embroidery. Easy-to-wear shapes. Breezy cheesecloth. Of course I'm talking about Chloé.

If I could wear only one thing all summer long, this is what it would be (specifically, that white dress — to die for). The spring collection is feminine, elegant and easy. I feel like I say that every spring. It's definitely Chloé's season.

With spring making its way into stores, I am eager to embrace this refreshing season. Boy, do I have plans.

Especially for my clients!

Here they are. The beauties I mentioned last week that already sold out.

Well, that's almost true. The color and style (wedge) that I wanted sold out. I'm fairly certain I can still grab my second choice pair of these fabulous Chloé gladiator sandals. Case in point: order your spring cravings early.

I know it's hard to believe that in February you'd ever find yourself in a pickle over spring items. However, there's a reason why some items are more difficult to get your hands on. Shoes, for one, will always be a hot topic. I recommend pre-ordering the shoes that you cannot live without 3-4 months before the season hits. With resort season in full swing, those coveted spring sandals have been snatched up.

Outerwear is another one of those items that leaves the stores quickly. Especially in spring! Lightweight jackets and trench coats are difficult to find once the weather breaks and you can actually ditch your parka. Pre-order.

Once you have a shopping strategy in place for the year, it becomes second nature. And you can plan your budget accordingly. Just ask my clients.

Winter hats come in handy on snowy days. In fact, they are essential. And if you live up north, enjoying more snow than anticipated, you wouldn't think of leaving the house without one.

Functional and stylish, hats keep you warm and allow you to embrace the elements. Besides, there are so many fun, cozy hats available there's no excuse not to express your individual style.
