Not only am I seriously crushing on this spring weather, but I'm also obsessed with bold colors right now. From vibrant yellows to rich navys, brights are having a major moment - and I am SO here for it, which brings me to...one of the hottest colors of the season: blood orange.
Never underestimate the power of a statement jacket - especially in spring. Here, my fiery moto topper MAKES my outfit. And while I admit, orange isn't for everyone, when it works, it WORKS. This hue looks especially amazing when paired with navy since they're opposite each other on the color wheel.
Have you jumped on the bodysuit bandwagon yet? If not, allow me to try and further convince you. You guessed it - I am NOT wearing a t-shirt here. This striped number is a lovely little bodysuit, and it allows me to look polished and put-together without having to fuss with something called "tucking my shirt in." Bodysuits are a one-and-done kind of deal, and they're a game-changer!
Until this season, I don't think I had had a jean skirt in my closet since junior year of high school. Remember when ALL the cool girls rocked these guys in middle school? For 2017 - and your adult life - these skirts have gotten a major tune-up. Enter statement embellishments, longer hems, and unexpected hardware. Buttons down the front take this denim bad boy from Abercrombie-obsessed tween to trendy fashion-forward twenty-something.
These white sneakers prove you don't always have to sacrifice comfort for style. I love how today's sleek tennis shoes look just as amazing with boyfriend jeans as they do with feminine dresses. On our modern-day fashion stage, there's no look these CAN'T be worn with. Is that enough of a reason to invest now?
So.Much.Orange! I couldn't NOT wear these lively shades with this outfit. They match my jacket to a tee, and I was also attracted to how the white frames bring out the white stripes on my bodysuit. They're sporty and a bit casual, but nonetheless chic.
Another exciting piece, this purse just screams summer, don't you think? It also effortlessly combines three white hot trends: tassels, poms, and metallic - not to mention shades of neon. It's that quirky piece every wardrobe craves, and yes, it's as fun to wear as it looks.
Silver spike earrings give my look that bit of edge I always like to incorporate.
Playing off my silver accessories, I dusted my eyelids with silver Urban Decay shadow in "Verve." I kept my cheeks peachy and my lips strong but muted in a rose gold lipstick by Bite Beauty.

The flowers have blossomed, the trees have turned green, and warmer weather is officially here to stay! I celebrated by wearing this cheerful outfit on one of NYC's first 80 degree days of the year. There's just something so youthful and energetic about a denim skirt, white sneakers, and bold colors. It made me feel like a kid again getting pumped for summer break!
