Look of the Day: Leifsdottir Brights and Neutrals

Here's a quick Sunday outfit post of a spring look I put together on Polyvore. I love mixing strong colors like coral with neutrals, and feminine ruffles with jackets.

Spring's First Blooms: Zhao Wei for Harper’s Bazaar China

There are two main signs of spring- the oldest one is the appearance of robins and the other is traces of new life- first blooms peeking through the snow /earth and on lifeless trees. Depending on where you live you may not have seen any trace of new blooms so let this editorial featuring Zhao Wei for January's Harper’s Bazaar China by Feng Hai serve as your first signs of spring!

As for the appearance of robins as a sign of spring...  can a girl named Robin count? if so, here i am ;)
Have a lovely day everyone!

Spring's Full Skirts

Spring is upon us and what better way to encourage its early arrival than by wearing lovely full and mid-length (midi) skirts. They are a "trend" this year, but I really wasn't aware that such a universally flattering and feminine cut was ever 100% out. Here are some lovely inspiring photos full of great full skirt styling ideas, and a few pieces available now. and don't worry if its still to cold; pairing a sweater with a full midi skirt is perfect for chilly early spring days. :)

Lessons in Pink.

It is a well known and accepted fact that girls love pink. However, we have all seen many a girl fall victim to pink-obsession and the over use and abuse of the color in general (girl in pink sweatpants and hoodie set I'm looking at you..) So here are some of the most flattering, dreamy, and romantic ways to wear this lovely color. Have a lovely Valentines day everyone and enjoy these lessons in pink.
