Somewhere over the Rainbow


If you haven’t noticed yet, one of the biggest ‘trends’ for spring ’18 is bold, vertical stripes! I use the word trend loosely because stripes are always a classic staple in my book. This season’s colorful candy-stripe versions add that pop of fun to your closet that can be dressed up or down. A sexy dinner date al fresco or an afternoon with the girls, vertical stripes are elongating which makes them slimming and flattering on every figure. I especially love them because I am very petite at 5’4″, and they trick the eye into constantly moving upward in a straight line. Scroll the links below for my fave picks!

The Cult Gaia Bamboo Ark Bag has been the hottest bag of the season, and when they introduced their Mother of Pearl Acrylic Ark, I gasped. There was no use in me even pretending that I didn’t need this mermaid-approved pearlescent wonder. I was defeated instantly. The white is everything summertime! Plus, it has a subtle shimmer that catches all the eyes in person. You’ll just have to take my word for it. Swoon.
