Pattern Play: Gone Pineapples!

pineapple print - fashion - street style

This spring 2014 street style starlets have gone bananas for pineapple prints! Natalie Joos (that's her above, bottom right) has been a big proponent of this trend, and other fearless fashionistas have taken to wearing the tropical fruit on everything from purses to pants


Pineapple play not exactly new, remember the spring 2013 Moschino Cheap and Chic collection, or even better yet the Chloe spring 2001 collection? But it is looking fresh this season. So I say, if you can't relax and drink a piƱa colada, you might as well wear one;)

Spring Trend! Floral Print Bomber Jackets

April showers bring May flowers.... But hey, why wait an entire month to break out your favorite blooms?! Printed bomber jackets, specifically floral print bombers, are the perfect transition piece to help you fight off an early spring chill.

Now, let's talk style. The main decision is if you want to be casually cool or flat out femme. A floral print bomber jacket easily turns boyfriend jeans and a t-shirt into a a statement making outfit. For those that take more risks with fashion, pairing a floral bomber with a full patterned skirt is a great look for brunches or work days alike.

So are you ready to get flower bombed yet?;) Well, I've been doing a little spring jacket online shopping and I have more than a few favorites...


Jewel Box: Delicate Gold Necklaces

I love a statement necklace as much as the next fashion gal, but there is something to be said about delicate gold necklaces. Worn alone or layered, the simplicity of such necklaces can work with every style from classic chic to reformed rocker. For my birthday a couple weeks ago my fiance gifted me this beautiful Kristen Elspeth layered necklace, and I am completely obsessed!

Check out some of my favorites:


Vogue Australia - On With The Show

Although this fashion editorial was featured a year ago in the March 2013 issue of Vogue Australia, it couldn't feel more appropriate to welcome us into the fashions for spring. Pastels, florals, nude heels and feminine silhouettes are featured to lend a dramatic take to the traveling carnival theme of the photographs. Enjoy:)
