We’ve sure had our fair share of April showers in NYC this spring. And as the old saying goes, May flowers should be right around the corner. If waiting for daisies to break through the ground is a little too slow-paced for your taste, you can don your own flowers this spring in a myriad of ways! Your favorite brands are getting spring fever too, with florals on every rack and in every window. Miranda Priestly may scoff at the age-old motif, but florals are a timeless staple for good reason. Brands like DVF, Gucci, Erdem, and Alice + Olivia have dozens of floral patterns for you to choose from this spring, as well as a wide range of silhouettes and materials for variety.
And in the blink of an eye, spring is here! While I despise setting my clock forward one hour, the extra light in the evening and the warmer temperatures sure are nice. March and April are full of inspiration for me – foliage and flowers, fresh cut grass and barbecues, outdoor exercise and birds chirping are just some of the little things that influence how I dress when the weather starts to warm up. I’ve actually been traveling quite a bit this spring already – working, dancing, working some more – and upon my return to NYC all I wanted was to put on some comfy clothes and take the weekend to myself. Lucky for me, athleisure is everywhere right now.
Without the constant magic and joy that NYFW provides Manhattan, the city reverts to its default for mid-February — a bleak, gray winter. To escape the seemingly endless gloom and cold winds, I recently hopped on a plane to visit some of my favorite spots in Miami and inject some sunshine back into my daily routine. Not only was this trip filled with blooming plants and fresh air, but I also took full advantage of the humidity and warmer temperatures by pulling out some of my favorite seasonal transition garments. When it’s too warm for sweaters but not quite time for mini skirts, I tend to find myself wearing long, breezy ensembles that I can feel confident in – despite unpredictable weather.
