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!

The first Monday of May is my favorite Monday of the year because it’s Met Gala Monday!! Celebrities and fashionistas alike come together to celebrate the newest Costume Institute exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. I love the Met Gala because it’s a chance for fashion geeks like me to salivate over some of the most beautiful couture, inspired by the exhibit’s theme.

This year’s exhibit is China: Through the Looking Glass and explores how Chinese aesthetics, art and culture has influenced Western designers and the pieces they create. The museum’s website describes the exhibit as “[h]igh fashion will be juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery,” and that it “will feature more than one hundred examples of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear alongside Chinese art.
Some attendees really took the Chinese theme to heart and incorporated these looks in their ensembles, while others may have stayed away from the theme but still looked utterly gorgeous in their gowns. Take a look at my favorite looks below!
