Spring Trend Alert: Emerald Rush

Disclosure: Compensation was provided by Caress® via Glam Media. The opinions expressed herein are those of the author and are not indicative of the opinions or positions of Caress®.

Every Spring, color brights become popular all over again, but for me, it’s the warmer, richer colors of Spring that get me every time. And lately, one of my favorite warmed up colors for spring: emerald green. The color is classic and royal and still so fresh. And then I really dove in head first, picking up the new Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash. This stuff is amazing; infused with lush gardenia and white tea essence, I literally cannot wait to get home to slide into a bath with a good book and far too many gardenia-scented bubbles. As an added bonus, Caress® Emerald Rush™ really leaves your skin feeling silky soft, is totally budget-friendly, and is surprisingly easy on my sensitive skin … such a winner in my book.

As for the fashion, now that I’ve fallen hard for all things emerald, I’m spotting the color everywhere. I rounded up a few of my favorite street style stars rocking the rich Spring hue, and I can’t wait to copy the look myself. I’ve had my eye on this emerald green handbag for ages, and that silky emerald ball gown skirt below is calling my name.

Knee High Gladiator Flat Sandal Boots

I love a great pair of flat sandals.  High heels will always have my heart, but flat sandals call to me from Spring on – it is crazy hot here in Miami.  And the knee-high flat gladiator sandal, big last summer, has come back full force right along with festival season.


This look is not for the faint of heart, and truthfully, it’s grown on me.  I was intimidated by the idea at first, of having a sandal strapped all the way up over my calves; but most, zip easily at the back, and they make quite the statement (exactly the way I like my fashion.)  And judging by street style lately, most popular goes to: the Stuart Weitzman Gladiator Flats.  (Though these Aphrodite Gladiator Sandals have my heart all aflutter.)

Shop the Knee High Gladiator Look (to fit every budget):

By the way, if the soaring height of these gladiator sandals is what’s scaring you, Loeffler Randall, Matt Bernson, and Dolce Vita all make adorable (ankle-height) gladiator sandals, perfect for Spring and Summer.

15 Retro-Inspired Bikinis And One-Pieces

Retro Swim Black Bikini - Liz Anne Photography

Truthfully, I fell in love with the vintage bikini look when I saw Allie (played by Rachel McAdams) rocking that gorgeous high-waisted two piece bikini in The Notebook.  After that, I tried my very first high-waisted bikini bottom (a smocked version by Tori Praver) — that bikini flattered my hips and tush in all of the best ways, and actually kept my petite-meets-curvy figure looking sexy and adorable; hands down the best bikini bottoms I have ever worn.  And lately, stores are stocking their shelves with retro bathing suits for Spring, and I’m trying to resist the urge to snatch up at least three new swimsuits.  Today’s retro-inspired one-pieces and high-waisted bikinis are modest-ish but still sexy, and back in style in a big way … and I couldn’t be more excited!  I’m dreaming of a beach getaway in one of these 15 throwback bathing suits perfect to take you through Spring and Summer.

Completely obsessed with this striped bikini-meets-one-piece hybrid by Lolli Swim and this deep-V halter by 6 Shore Road.

And don’t forget, Shopbop‘s BIG Friends & Family Sale is going on now – that’s a 25% off sitewide sale (a.k.a., the biggest Shopbop F&F sale of the year!)

These are a few of my favorite things …


I’m also on the hunt for the perfect baby shower dress – pretty smitten with this one, this one, and this one — any favorites?  And I’m thinking about caving on these awesome Rag & Bone pajama jeans … so cool.


Confessions of a Shopaholic

It’s been a while since I shared some of my obsessions (a.k.a., the shopaholic confessions … maybe if I put them out there into the world, I’ll stop pining.  ha.  Fat chance.)  Don’t let that fool you into thinking I’ve straightened up my act – quite the contrary – now that I’m pregnant – I want doubly: one for me, one for baby girl.  This could get dangerous.  (And of course, as a blogger, I stumble upon about a millions things a day that I just have to have.  Hazards of the job.)  But for now, here’s the grown-up stuff I really really really want.

ONE. Isabel Marant Linen-Blend Bouclé Jacket:  This jacket is darling and sophisticated and I want it.

TWO. Loeffler Randall Mini Rider Bag in Cheetah/Flamingo:  With a baby on the way, my heavy purses have started to haunt my dreams (no joke, the more pregnant I guess, the less stuff I want to carry.)  So I’m making a conscious effort to travel light-er.  This adorable cheetah crossbody should fit the bill!

THREE. West Elm Metallic Diamond Pillow Cover:  I can’t stop buying throw pillows.  It’s a problem.  And now I want this one.

FOUR. West Elm Metallic Chevron Pillow Cover:  And this one.

FIVE. Maison Martin Margiela Stylo Ostrich Black Feather: I’ll admit, I need an ostrich feather pen, well, not at all. But this certainly seems like a fabulous DIY must.

SIX. Marc Jacobs Keyhole Aviator Sunglasses:  These sunglasses are a total splurge, but they are just so darn cool.  Best take on the classic aviator style that I’ve seen, hands down.

SEVEN. STELLA MCCARTNEY Bubble Hem Dress: I’ve coveted this dress since the second I spotted it worn on the streets of Paris Fashion Week.  I adore the bubble hem and the silky pink champagne color.  Très chic.

EIGHT. Jules Smith Bahia Necklace: I have a serious thing for layered necklaces, and this dainty pile of Jules Smith necklaces takes the guesswork out of layering.  Love it.

NINE. Loeffler Randall Fenton Buckle Bootie. It’s safe to say that I am a boot lover. And after finally snagging my first pair of Loeffler Randall sandals, on sale of course, I’m totally hooked. Their shoes are so well-made and chic. Want want want these boots like woah.

TEN. Curly Hairpin Vanity Brass Stool: I’m totally smitten with this furry little stool. It’s quirky and adorable and totally out of character for my place, which is why I kind of really love it.

See the rest of my confessions, here.

I’m always impressed when celebrities pull off everyday outfits that the rest of us might actually be able to afford … and in this case, love.  New mom, Jenna Dewan-Tatum looks ever-adorable in her “running errands” look, and though I might skip the heels (however much I may love this pair!) for a trip to the grocery store, the rest of her outfit is casual cool in the best kind of way … and, added bonus:  Jenna’s pants are actually from Kohl’s (and under $50!)
