As much as I adore separates sometimes a girl just wants to throw on a dress to enjoy a beautiful sunny day. And what could be a better choice than this beautiful Prabal Gurung for Target floral & black paneled dress?

This has been my favorite designer collaboration so far and I woke up early to make sure there wasn’t a repeat of the Jason Wu for Target debacle {Seriously? All my sizes gone by 9am?}. This dress is my favorite piece that I ordered and I love how it’s a grown-up, modern take on sweet Spring florals. Stay tuned for a peek at the gorgeous heels I also ordered!

St. Patty’s Day & Green For Spring

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

I’ve loved this holiday since I was a kid. I still remember my “Kiss Me I’m Irish” pin that I wore in Elementary school and gleefully pinching my unsuspecting classmates who forgot to wear their green. Those innocent traditions may have been replaced with green cocktails and pub-crawls, but my love of the holiday hasn’t diminished any over the years.

And since green is my favorite color AND brights, colorblocking, and neons are right on trend for Spring 2012, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite green picks for this upcoming season.

A green dress, either in a solid or a colorful print, is a great, versatile piece for Spring. Pair with tights & a cropped jacket when it’s nippy out or with sandals, a 70’s inspired hat, and huge sunnies.

A green top or jacket is a chic way to add some green to your look without being overwhelmed. Jeans with a cute blouse or a pair of Capri pants with a t-shirt and a green jacket are both great, low-key styles for Spring.

Colorful accessories are a great way to inject some color into your look without venturing into all-over-color territory. Subtle and easy! You can also pair multiple hues in a single look if you’re sure to keep the rest of the outfit neutral.
