When I find something I love, I usually double up and buy it twice in another color. Six years ago, I got a yellow and white striped Kate Spade skirt for my birthday, and I have loved it ever since, always so excited to pull it out when the seasons click over from winter to spring. 

So, when this Kate Spade multi-stripe skirt came out this year, I knew I had to have it. Not only do I love the color combination, and the cut, I knew I would love wearing it because of how much I have worn the similar skirt I got for by bday years ago. 

In fashion, sometimes it's hard to know what is a safe bet and what's more of a gamble, but you can rest easy when you are doubling up on an idea that you already adore.

the perfect compliment

Sometimes the perfect compliment to a classic, feminine dress is a funky, and a little bit quirky, fringe shoe. I'm kind of obsessed with these gold, fringe sandals. They are so comfortable and mimic a furry shoe, which I love, and they are the perfect compliment to this vintage, coral wrap dress. Of course a strappy heel, gladiator sandal or ballet flat would be great with this dress, but these funky-fun sandals update this dress with a fun, and current, twist.

What better outfit for my first April 2016 post than a sweater with April showers?! This outfit is totally tonal, uber comfy and completely weekend ready. Normally I wouldn't pair a navy sweater with jeans, but this pair of flared denim is just light enough to work with navy. Paired with two of my favorite accessories du jour, this bright blue bag and my trusty lace-up heels, I honestly cannot wait to wear this outfit again. It's the perfect combination of comfort and style!

To quote Zoolander, bell sleeves are "so hot right now." Borrowed from the 1960s and 70s, and included in almost every designer's collection, the bell sleeve is a great way to add a little spice to any look. Make sure to pair them with something that is close fitting and not too voluminous. Just one bell shape per outfit is the best way to go. Have a great week, friends!

One of my favorite spring/summer style tricks is tying a bandana around my neck. The bandana has been gaining style momentum over the past year, and I've been asked a lot how to pull it off without looking too country. But have no fear, I'm here to help! 

Pulling off a bandana is simple when you pair it with down-to-earth, yet polished pieces. A classic trench coat, grey t-shirt and a great nude heel, make this look city-chic and leaves the country feel of the bandana far behind. So try pairing a bandana with your most polished classics, you won't regret it!
