Taking an intermission of my latest sunny destination to talk about loosing real life winter layers. Because unfortunately we cant live in the tropics all the time right?  So we are back to layers, knits jackets beanies etc. but I think it is time, when the sun is out to shed the layer of the parka. Layering with a chunky knit is appropriate starting now. I can not talk enough about the art of layering and I actually think it is my favorite thing about fashion. Just getting back from a warm weather getaway I actually missed layers! So my goal is to be more creative this summer with cool layers as well. So this look kicking off the first outfit without a coat that is still cozy and yet is starting to look like spring a bit as well.

Shopbop just has endless spring ready trends that are creeping onto the site right now. I am labeling this trend under California Cool. The light denim and the kicks scream casual west coast style which, well is exactly who I think I am. Levis is an all year round necessity for me, winter in 501 originals and summer in cut offs. Yes to it all. I love that Shopbop has Levis now, these vintage remakes were my favorite find on the site right now. A few other trends we are needing to focus on this spring, pink (duh), structured and tailored looks and of course the day time lingerie vibe is exactly what spring calls for.
