Coral Crush

currently crushing, sole society coral caged heels, mikaela heels sole societyCoral is my all-time favorite color.  This happy, sunshiney shade makes a perfect neutral that spices up any outfit and reminds me of warm LA nights wearing cute heels and Summer dresses out to drinks with friends or date nights with my boyfriend.  These strappy coral heels are my new ‘go-to’ hotties for Spring and I love how they add a modern twist to this vintage dress coat…

Black & White

currently crushing, edie sedgewick black and white stripe dressThis image of Edie Sedgewick in a black and white striped dress is one of my all-time favorites.  The backless dress, mod eye makeup, classic hair style and piercing stare draw me in and prevent me from doing the million other things I should be doing instead of obsessively pinning celebrity black and white images to my Pinterest.  I came across this very fitting quote by photographer Ted Grant on the subject of black and white photography:

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.  But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls.”

Here are a few of my favorite style icons in black and white…

Campbell’s Soup Skirt + Kushyfoot

Shopbop Friends & Family Sale

Shopbop’s Friends & Family sale is going on now through Thursday 4/17 and the entire site is 25% off with code INTHEFAMILY14 at checkout.  This makes it the perfect time for me to pick up one of these fabulously adorable Spring clutches right at the start of the season.  I love all of these girly clutch bags – especially the straw ones – with pretty Spring dresses:

 

 

Do you have a favorite?  The Marc Jacobs Katie clutch with the bunnies on it is the one I’ve been dreaming of but that white Milly Astor clutch with the palm strap and tassel would probably be the best one for me to invest in since I don’t have anything remotely like it and I can see it getting a lot of use this Spring and Summer.  While you’re shopping the sale be sure to check out this perfect maxi dress which I’d love to wear with these ankle wrap sandals!
