How To Wear Mixed Prints for Spring / Summer 2010
By

We’re seeing mixed prints everywhere this Spring: Fashion mags, blogs, runways – you name it, it’s there. But it’s a tricky, tricky trend. While a haphazard approach to just throwing on mixed prints can work, this type of look is usually pulled together by a killer pair of heels and a statement bag. So the overall look screams “I’m purposely not matching in an ironic way!!” instead of “I got dressed in the dark!”

What Target Does Best: Spring / Summer Picks

The Liberty of London for Target Collection helped woo me back in, but it wasn’t the only source of temptation under those fluorescent lights. A perfect romper (M’s post has completely addicted me to rompers for moms), look-alike Hunter Rainboots, and a perfect tiny cross-body bag — all under $20!!! — sold me.

Worth A Closer Look: Ann Taylor Loft’s Spring Line
By

On the fairly rare occasions I’ve wandered into Ann Taylor Loft (usually suckered in by a big sale), I’ve often left feeling underwhelmed. The clothes were never horrible…just “eh”. Once in a while I’ll pick up a necklace or something…but overall, I saw Ann Taylor Loft as a place to be bored. Nice basics, nothing exciting, nice prices, nice sales, but nothing worth a trip. Yawn.
So I was very confused, the other day, when I happened to glance over at the Ann Taylor Loft window displays. For a moment I thought I was looking in J. Crew’s windows. But no – it was good ‘ol ATL. But this time…the clothes were cuter, somehow. A bit…dare I say it? Trendy?

End of Winter Outfit Inspirations: Nordstroms Part 2, Coffee and Museum

For the next bit of winter inspiration (pictured again on Becky at left), Leisa chose a soft range of neutrals, paired with bright pops of colors, and finished off with light-colored leather accessories. The light gray boots and soft caramel bag are surprisingly versatile, and will only look better with age.

End of Winter Outfit Inspirations: Nordstroms Part 1, Playground

P1161764Feeling the winter blahs? Me too. Despite all of the the NY Fashion Week reports coming out of the blog-o-sphere last week, I still need a bit of cold-weather inspiration to get me through the next month or so. So we hooked up with Leisa Payton, a Personal Stylist at Nordstroms to glean some ideas of how to mix up our winter clothing with a little dose of Spring.
Leisa’s first look (pictured on Becky at left) layers a Spring safari jacket over cozier winter items to create a warm, yet cute look that can easily go to the playground.
