When in doubt, accessorize! The quickest way to update an old look is with the season's standout extras. Leave the solid tote at home and break out a bright satchel. Since it's warm enough to show skin, give your wrists some love with ornate stacked bracelets. Finally, indulge your feet with fabulous wooden wedges—don't forget the pedicure!

I LOVE spending time with my family and friends. Being away from them has been harder than I would have EVER imagined but I have made some amazing new friends since living on the West Coast! I am a L.A Lakers fan and here are a few pictures from the Laker vs. Clipper game! SO Fun!
Whether you're underneath the stars or a disco ball, there's still room to shine with sequins. A shimmery scoop-neck tank attracts all the attention for you, so keep everything else simple. Pair with fall's dark pants and skirts and wear minimal jewelry. Do, however, accessorize with a seductive red pout.
Take a break from stick-skinny leggings and go softer this spring. The pant of the season is flowing, silky and just as comfortable. To keep the look sophisticated and chic, aim for a square silhouette up top. Collared shirts and slim fitting knits balance the pants' loose, airy quality.
Some days are way too warm to sport an LBD. That's where the khaki dress comes in. Equally functional, it easily transitions from day to night. This season, choose a draped, halter style in a breathable cotton or jersey. The neutral palette leaves the door wide open for artful shoes and playful jewelry, so have fun accenting what's sure to be your new favorite key piece
Even if the sun isn't out, a brightly colored blazer lifts spirits and punches up a basic outfit. Boost your favorite jeans-and-tee combo with a coral jacket and a multi-hued satchel. Make an even bolder statement with a monochromatic look using various shades of tangerine, magenta or teal.
Striped Sailor Top
You don't need to board a yacht to sport the season's nautical trend. Work that early season tan with a jazzed-up, off-the-shoulder version of Breton stripes. Slip on crisp jewel-toned shorts and lace-up sandals to complete the polished weekend look. Striped tops can also go from the boardwalk to the boardroom. Simply add a sleek black blazer.
The runways were in full bloom with vibrant florals—there's no better way to kick off spring! Short and sleeveless dresses in closely gathered prints can easily take you from a morning at the farmer's market to al fresco lunch with friends. Florals also present a perfect opportunity to showcase color. Go natural with a fresh citrus scheme or think pretty with pinks and pastels.
If, like us, you've been stifled in turtlenecks and thermals all winter, the lace blouse is a bit of fresh air for spring. Long-sleeved versions provide coverage as well as ventilation thanks to lace's peek-a-boo details. Tone down the material's naturally seductive nature with a high-waisted tulip skirt. Or just let loose with a short tiered mini. It's spring, after all!
A printed skirt serves the same role in your spring closet as NARS blush does for your face. It instantly brightens and pumps energy back into a simple look. Choose a flowy, solid-colored top to go with patterned pencil skirts and a tailored, feminine blouse for fuller styles. Top off the look with platform pumps to highlight those gams
