Keeping It Above The Knee!!!!!!!!!

Mini's are just about everywhere this season! From shorty shorts(can you say Daisy Dukes?) to mini skirts!!! One might want to have a great pair of legs to work this look to perfection, but if not, fear not, you can still pull it off and remain in style! So, you may not have gym perfected thighs, I mean really, who does? That doesn't mean you are confined to knee covering shorts, nor does it mean that the only shorts you sport are around the house, while cleaning up on the weekends!! Show off those legs in some of these!!! Nordstrom has a great selection of shorts at all lengths! Not to mention, Jcrew has a fab selection of shorts that can be dressed up or done casually with flair! Pair a broken in pair of denim cut-offs, with your(my) favorite tee and gladiators and cardigan and your ready for the weekend!!!

Next up...The mini dress makes a come back!!!!

Although we are fully in the midst of spring, it still comes with a slight chill! When the weather is sunny, but a little nippy...Opt for a light, Spring Jacket!

Try a military inspired anorak; perfect for a rainy spring day!!! The options are unlimited!! Keep yourself warm and chic all at the same time!!!

The Cat's Out The Bag!!!!!!!!!

Cat-eye sunglasses!!! Get some! They are hip, retro, and oh so cool!!! What a great way to update your sunglasses collection. Add a little retro flare! Don't wanna go all the way catty...try these almost, cat-like shades from Ray-Ban. Wanna go all the way 50's glam...try these. If you are down to try this look, your best bet is to find your nearest vintage clothing outlet, like this one and go to town (and it wont dent your wallet). I love anything vintage and retro and shades are a perfect way to channel your inner vintage-glam!!!

Go ahead and let your Cat's Eye out the bag!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the Jungle!!!!!!!!!!

Lions, tigers, bears, and zebra...prints...oh my!!!! Call of the wild! Call of the Urban Jungle is what you will see next in for Spring and Summer fashion! Animal prints were all over; from Marc to Diane. Leopard spots and Zebra prints! All fun and flirty looks to update your warm weather wardrobe. And certainly looks to carry into fall!!! From mini skirts to cover ups! Lots of looks to choose from and mix and match. Too much animal print is definitely a disaster waiting to happen!! Check out some of my favorites from DVF and Jcrew. MMJ also put his spin on this fashion staple too! And don't just feel limited to animal prints, but ethnic prints fit into this Jungle theme as well! Take yourself on a little wardrobe safari, if you dare!!!!!
