blazerIt's sunny and warm out today, and yes, that's breaking news for us here in the Northeast. Gosh it feels good. It's so nice to leave the coat and gloves at home and just bounce out the door like an Easter bunny who's been in hibernation for far too long.
Springtime is like my New Year's. Time for renewal and rejuvenation in my life, and in my closet. I love shopping for new spring and summer clothes (adore new shorts and skirts), but building on what I already have is key. No need to spend money (and the dreaded time in dressing room lines) when you already have five of spring's latest trends in your wardrobe.
Let's take a look.

A classic trench coat is a timeless necessity and one that most everyone should have by now. Great for looking chic on rainy days and keeping you warm on cool nights.
Ballet flats are here to stay, and neutral ones like these will go perfectly with your spring florals and patterns.
A well-fitted blazer is my go-to for any season. Fab in winter with jeans and pumps, sexy in spring with shorts and sandals.

Layering tees and tanks are what's going to get you from winter to spring to summer to fall. Throw on one, two, or three and take off as the day winds down and the night heats up. Love them paired with long necklaces or high-waisted jeans.
Makeup in the springtime is all about over-exaggerated blush and a nude lip. No need to buy anything new; just go a little heavy on the rouge and light with your lipstick! My absolute favorite cosmetic line, Tarte, makes this blush and lip color that I panic without.
