It’s always refreshing to change up your beauty routine and colors for Spring. I’ve selected a few of my favorite products and a few that I have my eye on…that Marc Jacobs gloss is so pretty! I generally stick to a natural palette and will occasionally wear a bold lip for something different. I’ve been wearing Amber by Prada consistently for 8 years, and will never stray away from this elegant aroma. What are some of your favorite beauty products and trends?

couture tee





leather jacket: ASOS // tee: Zara // jeans: Armani Exchange // bag: Prada (similar here) // hat: Acne // boots: Bocage (similar here) // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs

The transition from Winter to Spring clothing is always the most challenging for me. I want so badly to wear all the lightweight fabrics and fresh colors, but it’s still too cold! This Spring has been especially difficult since the temperatures are still around 30° most days. So, I opted for a lighter jacket and beanie. I found this tee at Zara a while back and decided to keep it simple and stick to a cooler palette. But how fun will this tee look with a pair of jean shorts and slip-on sneakers?! Someday, right?

I recently picked up this sweater for my husband and then couldn’t resist from wearing it myself! It’s the right amount of low-key style with a perfect touch of angora for a luxe softness. Slim pants with zipper details, cool tone accessories and a bright lip bring it all together and keep it simple. Have a great Monday!

I love the look of tailored outerwear. Clean lines, sharp collars, and an interesting drape always catch my eye. This soft wool coat belonged to my grandmother and adds a classic touch of elegance to any look. I decided to stick with a neutral palette, a bold red lip, and add a pointy boot for some flare.

All black and a comfortable (red) sneaker are perfect for running errands around the city. If I were to wear a uniform it would include a v-neck tee and a pair of black stretchy pants. Both of these items are currently on sale, too!

sweater: ACNE // shirt: Zara // pants: Joe’s Jeans // coat: Zara // shoes: 80%20 // shades: Ray-Ban (similar here) // ring: Tiffany & Co. // lip: YSL  // bag: Prada (similar here)

Today’s ensemble is a mix of two of my staples: knitwear and black. I love the contrasting large and small knit gauges on this sweater. Even though it’s a heavy kit, the raglan sleeves give it a chic and refined finish. I kept it simple with a black skinny pant and coat. A bold red lip gives my look the right amount of pop. Have a great Monday!
