One trend I’m loving this spring is elevated denim. It goes beyond your staple pair of skinny jeans and of-the-moment flares — think A-line skirts, denim dresses and trench coats like this one. The key to keeping this look chic and modern is a super clean rinse, one with no fading or distressing. I prefer a mid to dark wash for the same reason! Intermix is a great place to look for pieces like this (just search: denim) or Forever 21 for less expensive styles — I found this trench there for just under $40. One of my wardrobe goals this year was to buy less, buy better but I still make exceptions for trendier pieces I know I won’t want to keep forever. It’s why I haven’t pulled the trigger on these adorable denim flats. What do you think, are they are a love forever pair?

Culottes are a big trend this spring but they can be tricky to wear. I’ve found the most flattering pairs are the ones that almost look like a midi skirt because you can style them the same way. It’s important to have them tailored to the right length so the hem doesn’t make your legs look shorter. A couple of inches below the knee is where I think they look best. Until I walk (or jump!) these culottes really look like a skirt. I love that it makes them easy to wear to the office or dress up for an event. Speaking of dressing up, I went to preview the new Faviana collection earlier this week and saw so many glamorous dresses — I just need an excuse to get really dolled up. I hope everyone has a relaxing weekend and thank you for stopping by!

This brand self-portrait is one of my favorite recent discoveries for the incredibly modern way they do lace dresses. I’d wear this white shirt dress on date night once it warms up! I’m mixing up my all-gold jewelry collection lately with a few new rose gold pieces and this pearl ring would be the most elegant addition to any stack. I bought my first pair of Aquazzura sandals last weekend and promptly added a few more styles to my wish list including these tan sandals that are perfect for spring in so many ways. Last week I attended a beauty clinic at work for this fragrance brand and this scent was my favorite. I’m finally trading dark purple and red nail polishes for pretty pastel colors lately. Aside from the eye-catching bottles, these Smith & Cult polishes have the glossiest opaque formulas that I love. I ordered these red Nicholas Kirkwood flats last week and can already think of so many outfits I want to wear them with! I’m still on my hunt for the perfect trench coat and this sleek, streamlined one has caught my eye. Let me know what’s on your wish list!
