Spring is here! They say springtime represents new life, a renaissance of sorts. I see it as an opportunity to revamp our closets and breathe new life into our daily wardrobe. A time to put away our sweaters, coats, leggings and boots in the dark colors of winter and re-emerge in the flirty dresses, tops, tanks and sandals in the warm colors of Spring. Particularly, the pastel colors that herald the start of this new season.
I teamed up with Farfetch to bring you my inspiration for springtime. I put together a wishlist/inspiration board that represents how I see myself in these coming months.Each piece is not only a spring silhouette – think crop tops, vests, and dresses – but also is in a soft pastel color that matches the warm weather that Spring brings us.
I am most of all obsessed with the Alexander McQueen off the shoulder mini dress. Nothing says Spring like a ruffly mini dress in a warm cloud blue that shows off a little shoulder and a little leg.
Take a look at my wishlist below and be inspired to revamp your own wardrobe with some pieces that evoke the warmth and renaissance that Spring brings!

Ever since I saw the gingham print pieces from DVF’s Spring/Summer 2015 runway show, I have been waiting for these pieces to hit the stores!! And, it seems others are taking the cue and taking the classic, wholesome print and reinventing it for the modern age. From the classic dress and the preppy shorts to the sheer top and the perforated skirt, gingham is taking over for spring. Here are a couple gingham pieces I’m coveting!
