The Underdog Staple for Spring 2012: The knit dress

I'm sure everyone is seeing online articles such as "The Top 20 Staples for Spring" and the following is covered: a stripe top, a maxi skirt, an oxford shoe.

These items are all great and a must-have... How about we change the game this season?

I found my underdog staple this spring! What is yours?


Am I blue?

Ha! I'm not feeling blue at all! How could I? Amazing family, friend's, a job that is in the fashion field, all positive! I am psyched for the beautiful shades of blue this spring:

I'm especially digging the turquoise shade, can't wait to mix with my neutrals!

Happy Friday everyone! What color are you digging for Spring? 


Spring Forward!

Hey guys!!

How was the weekend for all of you? I spent it relaxing, watching basketball, and catching up on my magazines. It is nice to have a weekend to focus on yourself. I plan to have many this spring!

Well it is not officially spring yet till next week, I couldn't resist breaking out a transitional outfit today. I am starting to get into more color and mixing bright colors with my coveted neutrals. 

The cool pre-Spring night was perfect to show off my new teal blazer:

Love the fit of this blazer it is not oversized or fitted. 
As Goldilocks would say: "It's just right" 

I think I may grab another color in this body style shown here
I'll most likely purchase pink color so I can stick to my Miami Vice mood! Ha!

Now on to the dress, I love maxi dresses Spring, Summer, Fall, whenever!
The brand Lovers + Friend's nailed it!
Being the savvy shopper, I got the dress on sale, 
there are a few pieces left on Karmaloop!

Special thanks to Akua at "The Style Qween" for taking pictures.

The goal for this spring for me is: more color! My favorite color is blue and I plan to wear all shades of it.

What style goals do you guys have for spring?
