Your Ship Has Come In

Between browsing the department store racks, scanning online inventory and conducting market research via fashion magazines, we have found that stripes are a huge trend for spring. The stripe trend is nautical, classic and clean. It can transition you from spring to summer instantly. You can pair one of the many striped tees above with dark wash skinny jeans and red flats for spring and rock them with your white skinny jeans and silver Jack Rogers come summer. And of course we had to include some of our favorite accessories. How darling is that chevron white and red striped pillow? Perfect for your summer home! So next time you pop in to Lord & Taylor or Nordstrom pick up a classic stripe for casual comfort.

A Scarf is to a Woman What a Necktie is to a Man….

Scarves are so much fun this season! They can instantly change the appearance of an outfit. For example the skinny jeans and black cashmere  sweater outfit is fine but add a scarf and it’s divine. Heading out for a weekend tailgate? Go with plaid. Feeling frisky? Add some animal print. Need a pop of color? Go with a solid red hue.  Big presentation for work? Opt for for something a little more conservative, yet still fun. There are so many options you really can’t go wrong. It’s almost as if each one represents a mood. One might choose a neutral on a relaxing Sunday while they head out for a mani pedi. And one might choose a fun patterned print (like #3) for drinks with the girls or a date night. The possibilities are endless. Just as statement necklaces were to spring, scarves are the ideal fall accessory.  No need for a necklace with a fabulous scarf-just add some blingy stud earrings (like these) and you are ready to go!
