I’m baaaaaaaack! Forgive me for getting lazy going into hibernation… It was a tough Winter in Boston so here’s to Spring finally starting to arrive. Well, aside from the snow this morning but let’s just pretend that didn’t happen… Let’s kick off with some florals!

Runway to Real Life: 3.1 Phillip Lim

Runway to Real Life: 3.1 Phillip Lim by hbiggs [click through for outfit details]
Whatever the weather (umm hello, 90 degrees), my mind is on Fall fashion! Runway looks usually feel so unattainable to me, like works of art that I love looking at but could never recreate. So I wanted to try a new series where I take inspiration from the runway and make it accessible for real life (because lets face it, we aren’t all models or street-style stars)… This 3.1 Phillip Lim look from Fall 2013 isn’t too over the top so it’s a great place to start. For the work look, I balanced the bold pant with a classic white blouse and a dark knit. On the weekend, I swapped the blouse for a chambray and added ankle booties to keep it effortlessly chic. What do you think? Can you see yourself rocking a bold pant and layers for work or weekend?

Wear Now, Wear Later: white trousers

Wear Now Wear Later: white trousers
You know those easy, breezy trousers you reach for during the hot Summer months? Well you can take them from Summer to Fall with the right styling. For Summer, keep them light with a silky blouse and simple accessories. As Fall approaches, ditch the blouse in favor of a lightweight knit and a statement necklace. Add a red lip and rich cognac sandals to warm it up for the changing season.
Wear Now: Joseph pants, Balmain tank, Prada sandals, Kate Spade bangles, Topshop belt, Essie nail polish
Wear Later: Joseph pants, Helmut Lang sweater, Michael Kors sandals, Lulu Frost necklace, Saint Laurent clutch, Giorgio Armani lipstick

When taking on the crop top trend, remember… always pair with something high-waisted, proportions are key, and be confident. Which look is your favorite?

Denim cutoffs are a Summer staple… that is well documented. However, I find myself wearing them the same way over and over again (something akin to outfit #2), so for your sake as much as my own I styled a few options to inspire your denim-wearing, dog days of Summer using these Rag & Bone shorts. Which look is your favorite? Have a great weekend!

Night Out: A twist on the classic black/white combination, this mixed-pattern dress is fresh and flattering. Leopard wedges hint at sexiness, while remaining practical for bar-hopping, and a punchy clutch adds the perfect pop of color.

Barbecue: Mix a casual Tee with a feminine midi-skirt for an unexpected and cool BBQ look. Summer sandals (that you can easily slip off to play games) and a little bling pull it all together.

How effortlessly chic is this!?! Roomy shorts, a semi-sheer oversized knit, and flat sandals come together perfectly for an easy, breezy Summertime look. Plus, I love the neutral color palette and simple jewelry – it can be really refreshing to go simple sometimes, don’t you think?
