Springtime Beauty.. We tweak our wardrobes.. We tweak our homes..  We tweak our fragrances..  So naturally Spring is a great time to tweak our Skin Care..  With the harsh winter gone and the sun and warm air peeking through more and more, I know my skin always needs a good refresh.  My routine changes...  But

Classic Levis..

 The Look
Shorts: Levis 501 c/o
Top: G Star Raw
Shoes: Shoe Dazzle c/o
Jacket: 10 Corso
There is nothing like classic denim..  Whether it's a great pair of cut offs or sleek button up denim shirt.  Classic should be a staple in every closet.  Now I know what you are thinking..   "Cut offs are Classics'?"  .. And my answer to that very logical question is  "Yep, they sure are".   As long as they are not too tight or too short and definitely not both of those adjectives at the same...because  keeping it classic and classy requires a bit of wiggle room.. Literally!

Don't forget to head over to The Style Hunters Network HERE to vote for my look,

Yay it's Monday..  The beginning of a whole new week.. what are your goals and plans?

 TGIF:  This was a super long, super eventful week..  I feel like I jumped leaps and bounds in so many area's of my life.  Not necessarily everywhere that I wanted to .. But the universe has a way of taking you where you need to be.. not where you want to be... This week I had a little of both..

Anyhow enough of my ranting and raving about life..  Lets chat the simplicity of a tee and trousers.

I have to say I am not much of a DIY kind of gal.. But Wink and Winn has taken DIY to a whole other level.  Designing my very own bag is a DIY project that I can totally get into.   Super fun and creative...  I am head over heels with my bag.  Putting my personal touch on this beauty from beginning to end was the best part..

Let the Sunshine In.. Marc Jacobs Daisy

Spring is fully in the air...  The sun is peaking through the skies, and the flowers are in bloom..  It’s the time when we switch out the old and bring in the new.  Transitioning from a cozy winter to a fresh spring doesn't  only mean open toe shoes,  bright lipstick  and beautiful flowing maxi dress.. I switch into spring with  fresh new fragrances.   Charming,  floral  and fun.  Daisy by Marc Jacobs  and Daisy Eau So Fresh are the perfect ways spring right into Spring (pun intended)..

For some of us.. hitting up parties during Coachella weekend is just as exciting as actually seeing the acts perform... and day two there were some really great ones.
I swung by the Marc Jacobs poolside party at the Ace Hotel to munch on yummy taco's, sip on virgin moscow mules, pick out an awesome pair of Marc Jacobs sunnies and hang with a bunch of  blogger buds.

But upon seeing that I and the Ace Hotel matched.. how could I have a quick shoot in front of this wall...  A little game of find Taye in the Mural..

Road trips are always fun.... Okay let me rephrase that..

Road trips can be fun.. and I say if it's a short enough trip have a go at it in style...comfy style of course.   I actually drove out to the Coachella Valley in this look.  I am a sucker for high waisted anything these days...and I say the shorter the short the higher the waist.

It's all about balance.

Pull out those denim jackets because from time to time the softness of spring and summer are going to require a little rugged to edge it up.  There is nothing like mixing hard and soft textures.  This Alexx Jae x Milk Boutique silk dress was love at first sight..  Quickly becoming my go to slip dress for just about everything... And you guys and gals know that I am a sucker for a go to item.   Denim jackets,

If there is one consistent trend that I have been rocking since last year it's mirrored sunglasses.  Since purchasing my first pair of mirrored Rayban aviators for last years Coachella festivities I have been hooked.  There is something about a bright reflection to cover your eyes that will turn any ordinary outfit into a sure winner.

I have assembled a group of my favorite 14 mirrored sunnies for you to shop..  Both affordable and

Jacket: 10 Corso

I'm sort of becoming addicted to all forms of black and white.  Solids, Patterns, Color Blocked.  It's such a simple no brainer combo.  As I like to say from time to time..  No thought required.    It seems like my wardrobe lately is paralleling my life.  I am seeing so many situations as very black and white lately.  I am usually a person who finds all the colors and shades of grey.. but

Coachella is here.. Once again it's time to let loose and take over the desert.  Hundreds of thousands descend upon Palm Desert every year to bask in the glory of music, drinks, pool parties, flower crowns, boho braids and just plain fun.  I for one am looking forward to it.

With that said one cannot show up without out the right essentials.  Heading to Coachella armed with the right essentials is a must.  I mean who's really going to have time to shop once they get there?  Certainly not me..  Thus I have assembled a list of 11 Festival must haves to arm yourself with.  Standing out in the crowd is essential..

I absolutely adore doing two part posts.  Last week I posted this look with a wool Phillip Lim long vest belted at the waist.... But as the temperatures start to soar.. Rocking a pencil skirt, crop top and flat oxfords are a great way to slide into the spring and summer months effortlessly and with ease.
