As the winter season draws to a close you can be sure of one thing, it won’t go quietly. Much like the old adage says, we’ll have to suffer through some showers before we’re greeted with spring flowers. Luckily for all fashionistas braving the rain in heels, some of today’s hottest designers have put their spin on the season’s most utilitarian accessory: the pocket umbrella.
Yes, there is something sleek and chic about using a full-sized, long handled umbrella, but let’s face it, when you’re moving a mile a minute with a never-ending to-do list, those just get in the way. With both style and efficiency in mind we’ve rounded up some of the best mini-umbrellas on the market. From classic to quirky, there’s something for everyone. More >
tartelettes, have we got spring fever. In these last long days of winter, all we’re craving is pretty pastels, floaty dresses, and any excuse to bust out our new shades.
Fortunately, your faithful fashion blogger has managed to escape to warmer climes. It’s spring break, baby!
However, with just one unforgiving, carry-on size suitcase to fit all this fun spring fashion, packing was admittedly a bit of a challenge. After hours of agonizing in front of my closet, I decided to go with what always works best: just a few simple items of clothing, topped off with versatile springtime accessories. Here are a few of my favorite travel-friendly go-to’s.
The perfect LWD (little white dress) – like this one from California-based, eco-friendly line Kelly B Couture that’s made of 98% natural fibers. Wear it over your bikini, or dress it up with heels and a long statement necklace for going out.
A fabulous swimsuit; Trina Turk’s amazing prints and bold colors are a match for any water-side vacation.
A gorgeous silk scarf – like this one from ASOS – is the perfect springtime accessory. Toss it around your neck to glam up a casual outfit, tie it around your bag to brighten things up, or wrap it around your head for a chic answer to uncooperative hair.
Of course, bright (faux) leather sandals are a must. Our pre-trip ritual is to go pick up an assortment of colors at Forever 21.
A great pair of sunglasses. We just recently discovered the new line from TOMS, one of our favorite charitable accessories brands. For each pair you buy, the company will give sight to one person in need. Now, that’s fashion you can feel really good about.
Don’t forget to top off any outfit with some really good sunscreen. (We like all-natural Badger Balm). Nothing complements your clothes like healthy, glowing skin!
What are you planning for spring break, and what are you packing?
