Tip-Toe Toward Spring

In case you haven't heard yet, Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow today!! This news could not have come at a better time as nearly the entire nation has been rattled and tormented by snow, ice and freezing cold temps. Now we have an early spring to look forward to! I saw it only fitting to offer you a little food for thought today to aid in your transition into the warmer weather...starting with the latest and greatest from J. Crew!

Have you received the newest Crew catalogue yet? If not, start saving up now. My virtual shopping cart filled up faster than you can say "Punxsutawney." (Waaaaaay faster.) While the clothing remains fabulously functional, the retailer also offers great pieces that you can buy now, wear now and enjoy in the months ahead. Gotta love that year-round dressing!

Today, I'd like to get my hands on this peachy silk blouse to wear with boyfriend jeans or slouchy trousers and platforms...for those above-freezing days. (BTW- how do we feel about socks and platforms? I might be warming up to this idea.)

Blythe Silk Blouse

Collins Leather Platform

Later into the spring, I'll attempt the artful clash by wearing the peach blouse with these "modern red" shorts.

5" Chino

This open weave knit in the perfect pale hue will look equally as fab with the red shorts, allowing the bold color to pop in the bright sunshine. (Just add Ray-Bans.) For now, the hot new blushing pink trouser trend would also be a great pairing with this intricate neutral.

Carrie Crochet Sweater

Of course, maritime stripes are still taking the fashion world by storm. It just so happens that I LOVE them. This blazer will also be a great addition to the wardrobe now with wide leg jeans and equally as hot later with a silk blouse and leather shorts or a gray tee and denim cutoffs. (Remember this look?)

Selvedge Denim Short

Major applause for the crew at J. Crew. I can't wait to get my hands on their newest styles.

Now, we anxiously await March 20- the first day of Spring! Thanks, Phil!
