Ready for summer

Nothing says sunny days like a good madras shirt

Art director Noel gives us his take on casual Fridays. Nothing says ready for summer like a blue and pink madras shirt over a citron yellow T, cuffed Japanese denim, pink Ray-Bans and red high-tops. I couldn’t help myself and just had to capture his outfit. I hope to capture more informal street style for you here and there.

For the real deal, I suggest you head over to Lee Oliveira’s. He’s your man for street style.

Yours truly deleted all the photos taken of new shoes this morning on accident. If you squint your eyes really hard you can catch a snippet peeking out at the bottom of the photo. My best intentions to recapture them later in the day failed. Instead, I’m treating you to my first street style shot to distract you from the missing shoes.

I promise to make it up to you later. Pinkie swear.

Put a bird on it!

I received this adorable owl necklace last night as an early anniversary gift from my hubby. He’s a little steampunky. I named him HootieTwo, some of you might have read previously of the incredible pleasure I take in naming things with the most obvious names. I spend so much of my life being creative that I have to draw the line somewhere. Here’s Hootie The Owl, (the original.)

Layering so many different shades of vibrant pink tones on top created a visual stir so I chose to wear darker jeans and neutral shoes. Pick your fashion battles and stick to your guns. That was terrible, I don’t know what’s come over me. I’m giddy with from the week being over!

Something’s always funny around here

I’ve got twenty tabs open on any given computer, dog-eared magazines are strewn about, there are incomprehensible scribbles in several notebooks, lists of items coveted and I window shop with the precision eye tracking of a true professional.

What does it all mean?

This week, Fashion Beauty Friend Friday offers a simple question: What are the top five trends for spring that you have been looking forward to?

I covet these. They reflect a time of renewal, a gentleness with which to ease into this next season. I want to feel a warm breeze on my skin, I want to smell the flowers in bloom. Perfect for spring, perfect for me.

Faux fur vests are one of the most fun trends we’ve seen this past season. They’re warm and soft and are great for layering. They look best over a slim line because they add so much bulk. Keep the shape of your dress simple or your slacks sleek and uncomplicated. Naturally, they’re perfect with jeans.

Do you own any faux fur? How are you wearing it? Is it a vest or a coat? Do you wear it indoors or outdoors? How does it make you feel?
