10 Essentials for Spring

1. Home Upgrade | Spring Blossoms

The best part about Spring is the flowers hand down. Gone are the ice and snow and finally the trees are blossoming and new life has come up from the ground. My favorite spring blooms are cherry blossoms, lilacs, sweet peas, daffodils, and tulips. 

2. Grapefruit Candle

Cleansing the air with bright citrus candle instantly puts you in the mood for spring! Open the windows and let the sun shine through. It is a nice change from heavier, more wintery scents. 

3. Spring Wardrobe Upgrades 

Pack away your heavy coats and layers until next year. Now is the time to pull out your trenches, lighter knits and shirts. Easy wardrobe go-to's are : a classic trench, lightweight cashmere sweater, a striped tee, a gauzy linen button down, distressed jeans, and some classic tees. 


4. Shoes

This is the beginning of a beautiful love affair. How gorgeous are these shoes? Nothing says spring more than these Valentina Suede Pink Pumps by new brand Frances Valentine. 

5. Edible Flower Cupcakes

Wedding shower, baby shower, spring birthday? These simple vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting are instantly festive with the addition of edible flowers.  An easy show-stopping tip.

6. Distressed Denim

I live in my denim. I can't break away! Come spring, I am always on the hunt for the perfect faded blue, distressed, ultra soft pair. My current fave is this one, (ON SALE, same as above.)

7. Fashion Magazine Inspiration

Spring fashion is always fun to flip through. I keep binders of shoots and editorials from past seasons that I love to revisit. I like to keep on top of trends and pick and choose which ones I like and will incorporate into my own wardrobe. But mostly I like mixing and matching basics with a focal point piece such as a great jacket or pair of heels.

8. Spring Manicure

Getting a fresh manicure and pedicure can be easily overlooked, but once I get them I am so much happier! I love going to the Olive & June in their new Santa Monica location for a gel mani and regular pedicure. 

9. Skincare Upgrade

Here is a little look at some of the products I have in rotation in my bathroom right now.

10. Spring Pajamas

Flannels and warm fabrics get stowed away and a fresh pair of cotton short pajamas take their place. I am loving this latest arrival from Sleepy Jones, The Corita Set. Available in White, Blue & White Stripe, and Navy Gingham.
