marnihoboSpring is making its way into town. How exciting is that?

I can certainly attest to all the prep work going on behind the scenes for the new season — client purging, shopping and outfit coordination a plenty!

With the onset of spring, I always have my eye out for fabulous handbags (well, and shoes). And this one is practical and chic!

The Marni leather twist hobo bag has a contrast guitar-style lamb leather shoulder strap with a double snap closure at the top. Perfect for those who love to throw all their odds and ends into their bag while looking stylish. Of course, there are handbag organizers, too. We will visit that soon.

Until then, enjoy the glorious weather and embrace what the new season has to bring.

There are always opportunities to wear scarves. Nine months of the year, in fact.

One of the most transitional pieces from season to season happens to be this particular accessory. Easy layering.

And Étoile Isabel Marant's striped scarf has my attention. Woven from a sumptuous blend of wool and cashmere, this scarf is lightweight and super soft.

Essential and timeless.

whitechloecoatWith this winter chill upon us, I have grown tired of my puffer coat. Not that it doesn't come in handy, providing warmth. I just crave something more refined. 

Like this crisp white wool-blend crepe coat by Chloé. It's delicious, isn't it?

The Italian-made design has been impeccably tailored with a weighty fabric and oversized lapels and pockets. I can easily imagine this over jeans with fur sneakers, as well as over a fabulous dress paired with spectacular heels.

Everyone has a wedge this spring. It's the shoe of the season.

Miu Miu, Givenchy, Jimmy Choo, Valentino and, of course, Chloé.

This elevated suede espadrille by Chloé features supple suede with playful fringe, bringing on that boho vibe. This may possibly be the shoe you live in for months! I love the comfort, style and functionality of wedges. Unfortunately, my narrow foot requires a bit more structure than this one. Rest assured, though, I already have my wedges for spring.

What's your favorite style?

Yes. I find it completely acceptable to post about spring directly after a snow storm.

While the big snow missed us, there was plenty of opportunity for the kids to get outside to sled. And boy did they have fun!

Now that the snow and ice are melting, my mind has shifted to spring 2016 colors and styles. This getup by MSGM sums it up. With rose quartz being the 2016 color of the year, with serenity (think periwinkle), I plan to embrace my blush pink side. And I definitely intend to utilize bold pairings like this.
