A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win this amazing clutch and I'm obsessed with the bold, fruity print! For some reasons, it reminds me of summer evenings in the South of France... (clearly I'm dreaming of warmer climes...) Anyway, I still have this top in my closet ready and waiting for summer, and I can't wait to pair this citrus-y duo up soon!
Ever since the Kate Spade SS14 show last September, I've been thinking about fruity prints (and scents) for this summer, and now they're everywhere! These a just a few of my favorites (that kiwi skirt especially, what a statement!). How do you feel about fruity prints?

I've had this collection bookmarked (and pinned) since the day it was shown at the Spring/Summer fashion week last September. Hats, midi skirts, and Breton stripes? As soon as I saw it, I knew that this was the the most ideal look for spring: my "uniform" for the warmer season. Joie is a brand that I hadn't paid too much notice to before, knowing very little about them, but now I'm really loving their French vibe. Their latest AW14 collection just shown at NYFW was equally as perfect, with low key, wearable looks including the sweetest grey wool tights, capes, and keeping prints to a minimal. Understated chic at it's best.

To be honest over the past 2 months, I've been in a bit of a style rut. I'm always going for the same types of things, and I'm ready for a little change. But hey, this is a start, I'm not wearing a skirt! I've had an aversion to trousers/ jeans for so long. I struggle to style them without feeling scruffy/too underdressed and to actually find a pair that's a good length is quite a feat. These really stood out to me because they are slim without being too skinny, have a high waist, are surprisingly comfortable, and (what really tipped me over the edge)- they're one of my favorite colors. Being only about $30 didn't hurt, since I never knew whether I'd ever wear them.
I wasn't sure about pairing the trousers with this jacket (a great Reiss sale find btw!). They're not exactly the same color but I figured it was close enough, and like I said, I'm trying something new here. I think it worked... I like the idea of wearing all one color, and I'm definitely more of a burgundy and navy person than all black. What do you think? Do you like to mix things up style-wise once in a while? How do you get out of a rut?
