Although I love many nail lacquer shades right now, there are two, in particular, that I simply cannot get enough of.
Essie's Tuck it in My Tux is a creamy ivory that is beautifully soft and elegant. While it was introduced in winter of 2014, it's perfectly fresh for spring. And it looks gorgeous with a tan!
Another fabulous option for an amped up natural looking nail, is Dior's Nail Glow. It gives a French manicure effect — nail beds look pinker, tips look whiter. It leaves a high gloss finish. My friend had it on today and I just couldn't resist picking one up for myself. I love it already!
Here's to the neutral nail.
Product junkies out there, allow me to introduce you to a fabulous cosmetics line that I have recently fallen for, thanks to Jason Cecil of Jeffre Scott.
Rouge Bunny Rouge is a luxurious cosmetics brand that melds opulence and beauty with embellished detailing in a range of makeup that embraces romance and whimsy alongside modern technologies and first-class ingredients. The packaging alone will make you gasp! Art meets makeup.
One of my new favorites in the line is the Impalpable Finishing Powder, Diaphanous. Silky goodness on your skin that makes you look airbrushed. Yes, please! The super fine dusting of invisible loose powder softens flaws and evens skin tone, leaving a velvety matte finish. This can be worn alone or over your tinted moisturizer or foundation. This universal shade works for all skin tones.
Go play, if you haven't already!

If this doesn't make you smile on a cold and rainy day, I don't know what will. Of course, on a warm and sunny day I'd be over the moon wearing this.
Thank you GEM for bringing us this music notes embellished crepe dress in vibrant yellow. Paired with the green tie-up sandals makes it an easy sell.
Having had a taste of warm temperatures in early April, anything below 60 is just wrong. It chills to the core. With cashmere already put away, it's back to layers. And I have no issue layering over this dress. Think white linen jacket.

Sun cover can be chic.
An oversized sun hat not only shades you from the sun's harmful rays, but also adds style to your look. I love this elegant design by Eugenia Kim, crafted from toyo paper with a black and red grosgrain trim. Wear with a dress, shorts and flowy tee or bathing suit.
No doubt you will turn heads.

That's how I like it.
No new news here. I'm still preaching the all white wardrobe. Simplicity at its finest.
And while I am supposed to attend an event tomorrow in which I'll be wearing black, I much prefer white.
My schedule has been extra busy lately. Between shoots, clients and Bo, it's a wonder I manage to dress myself. Add in my children's sports (with my head spinning), and you've got a chaotic calendar.
Recently, I spoke at a group function where I presented easy breezy spring styles. The format was user friendly — changing the models' looks right on stage to showcase the importance of versatility in the wardrobe. Of course, the topic of white came up. My rule: white is fine year round (as long as the pants aren't linen). Yes, I prefer white denim in the winter over any other bottom, but that's not to say it can't be done. There's always winter white, too.
See, some chaos can be good. I wouldn't drop a thing in my life right now. I am doing what I was put here on earth to do.
Although, I do believe my client tomorrow will trump the event. Something has to give, and I love my clients. I'm thrilled I had the opportunity to dress clients for this particular event. I am behind more scenes than you can imagine.
Will any of my clients be in white tomorrow? What do you think?
