I am SO ready for spring to arrive! Here are a few spring pieces, plus some trend items to add into the mix this year. Logos are still going strong and are a fun way to add a pop to any look. I’m also noticing small dainty bags are having a moment, though fanny packs are still all the rage! Always quality over quantity – all of these pieces can easily transition into summer and even early fall wardrobes! What are some of your favorite spring pieces and trends this year?

Volume and ruffles are trending this spring. While I’ve always loved volume and the interest it brings to a look, I haven’t worn too many frilly ruffles for quite some time. When I saw this oversized frilly sleeve on a
no doubt black top a few weeks ago at Zara, I had to grab it! It’s an easy way to dress up jeans, or pair with black pants and heels for a night out. Also, these mules are super comfortable and also from Zara. You need them for spring and summer!

Jumpsuits are a favorite of mine – easy to dress up or down and always comfortable. This moto jumpsuit from Tobi has just the right amount of edge and street chic style. It’s perfect for Saturday night cocktails or Sunday brunch on a patio. And because I love jumpsuits so much and think everyone should have one in their spring wardrobe, one lucky person will win this one (different from pictured above)! In the comment section below, tell me how you would style it and a winner will be selected on April 15th!

It’s starting to feel like spring in Chicago and I couldn’t be happier! I’m loving all the trends happing now: oversized, off-the-shoulder fit, embroidery, and saturated hues to name a few. This shirt from Tobi is a stylish update to your everyday button-down. I like the relaxed, yet structured fit and longer length – it’s like wearing your husband’s shirt. Prefect and on trend for the warmer weather ahead!

I’m really loving all the oversized sleeves I’m seeing everywhere right now. Volume, texture, and flow are always a fun way to add interest to a look. I picked up this long-sleeved tee at Zara a few weeks ago. It adds just the right amount of fun to a casual look. What are some of your favorite Spring trends?

With the weather being so mild these past few weeks in Chicago, I’m thinking spring fashion! I’m loving all the patchwork, embroidery, volume and texture trending on the runways and streets. Metallic and blush pinks are still everywhere, and I love it! Also, the logo belt buckle is making a strong comeback.
Last week I attended the Gucci preview highlighting the 2017 Cruise collection and a few pieces for Spring & Summer. Alessandro Michele, the creative director of Gucci describes the Cruise collection: “… a beautiful chaos, it is a powerful mix of the past and the present.” I completely agree, it’s a bold balance of classic silhouettes, vibrant colors with adornments displayed in a unique and very modern arrangement. From fur-lined slippers to hand stitched embellishments, each piece is exquisitely crafted. Gah, those tiger fur-lined slides! One of everything, please!

Keeping it simple: warm weather calls for easy dressing with linen and sandals!
blazer: Vince similar // jeans: Old Navy // heels: Zara similar // shades: Céline
It’s still chilly in Chicago, so I’m wearing layers and pretending it’s spring. All white always feels fresh and extra chic to me. I added a heel and pink lip to keep my look feeling extra feminine. Black shades and a blazer with clean lines for the win! Let’s get Monday started!
