All Signs Point to Spring

The signs are unmistakable:  longer days, flowers blooming, warmer weather, hay fever.  Yes, Spring is upon us.

This means, it's also time to think about my warmer weather clothing and accessories.

I am in the market for a casual, spring-time bag.  I am on the lookout for some cute sandals, some versatile dresses, some functional cardigans.  But first, a cute, casual, versatile bag.

Considering Vanessa Bruno's Cabas:

I love its size, its slouchiness, and there isn't a logo in sight!

Fanny Packs

Fanny (comma) Pack - two words that conjure up a specific image. I envision a pale tourist, with a fanny pack tied to their waist, for daily essentials, such as money, a map, sunscreen, etc. Those days are gone, as the new generation of fanny packs is chic and stylish.  Look below, and you'll also notice my inclination towards animal prints.

Clearly, Gucci did a good job on this one, with the varying heel heights and a bevy of colors: suede, glitters, red, green, pink...whatever you may fancy.  And, I fancy a pair soon!

Two Coats in One

I'm noticing a lot of these bifurcated coats. I suppose, it's almost like having two coats in one. And, if you feel somewhat self conscious in a fur coat, there's always the half fur option.

Check these out:

Big Flares are Big

Recently, on Instagram -- I see that big flares are back in a big way.  Love this.

Smart Stripes

This February heat wave has me thinking about spring looks.  My favorite way to welcome warmer weather is with stripes.  Two of my favorite smart stripe looks lately:
