Spring Break Style: Vegas Edition

As my blog title suggests, I love fashion...and I am loving keeping my blog up to date! I enjoy sharing the clothing and accessories I'm obsessing over at the moment on my blog, but sometimes I get comments and messages asking to share some of the outfits I'm wearing! 
For Spring Break, I went to Las Vegas. It was so much fun walking around to all of the gorgeous hotels, relaxing by the waterfall and palm tree covered pool patio, and eating at delicious world renowned restaurants. Another fun part, obviously, was being able to dress up. Unfortunately, it was not as warm as I had hoped for most of the trip, so as you will see, I spent many days in jackets or long sleeves, but that didn't stop me from wearing cute outfits!

Oh, Helmut Lang

Oh, Helmut Lang. You never fail to amaze me.

Helmut Lang is, by far, my favorite designer right now. Two weeks ago I purchased my first Helmut Lang blazer from Nordstrom. While it awaits me at home in New York, I cannot stop thinking about it. It's absolutely gorgeous! Helmut Lang experiments with unconventional hemlines, color-blocking, and the mixing of fabrics. Everything is so unique and the fit is flawlessly flattering.
Below are some of my favorite Helmut Lang pieces, along with the blazer I just purchased that I absolutely love!

The Blazer I Purchased:

Jacquard Blazer - $795
I bought this blazer to wear pretty much with anything and everything. I can wear this over a professional outfit for interviews or work, but I can also wear it with jeans and a tee to make an outfit just a little more interesting and put together. I love it and cannot wait to wear it!

Some of my other favorites:

Intermix Exclusive ERA Colorblock Blazer - $648

Striped Jacquard Oversized - $795 (On sale for $556 at Bloomingdales.com!)

Asymmetric Wrap Skirt - $140

Smudge Print Poplin - $495
I am obsessed with this blazer. I love the asymmetry of it as well as its unique pattern. It would look amazing thrown over an all black outfit and with this blazer, you don't need anything else. You cannot go wrong with this incredible blazer. (I need it!)

Sugar Jacket - $575

Rune Heel Sandal - $470

Grain Canvas Dress - $735

Lawn Cotton Blouse - $295

Chroma Drape Dress - $520
This dress is SO unique and gorgeous! I love the different fabrics, colors, and hemlines thrown together to create this effortlessly chic look.

Transparent Grid Sweater Top - $310
While this sweater may only work on supermodels, it can still be appreciated for its artistic and differentiating detail.

Are YOU loving Helmut Lang as much as I am?

Tuesday's Ten: Daring Denim

After just one quick shopping trip to Bloomingdales and Nordstrom, it is so clear to me that unique, stylish jeans are THE trend for Spring. 
I love wearing fun denim. It's almost too easy to throw on a pair of comfy jeans and a tee, but with such exciting and contemporary denim everywhere you turn and at every price point, it's truly all you need! Instead of only wearing your blue jeans, swap them for some fun patterned and bold colored denim and your Spring look will be complete. 
It's the perfect effortless look and it's absolutely incredible for Spring.

Ten of my recent denim favorites:

rag & bone - $286

Paige Denim - $189

Genetic Denim - $220


Juicy Couture - $158

Rebecca Minkoff - $268

7 For All Mankind - $198

Free People - $78 (On sale at Bloomingdales.com for $43!)

Hudson Jeans - $218

GAP - $69

I'm definitely going to get my hands on some of these jeans. My favorites are the rag & bone, 7 For All Mankind, and GAP jeans...but let's face it, all would look incredible with a plain black tee.

What's YOUR favorite denim look?

Gorgeous Jackets Galore

I am SO impressed lately with the influx of absolutely gorgeous jackets I've been seeing. As we are soon transitioning from winter to spring, now is the perfect time to purchase a lightweight and stylish jacket. Designers are clearly going out of their way to create unique styles and silhouettes in vibrant and rich colors with great quality. Below are some of my recent favorite jackets. In fact, I am pretty sure I would love wearing each and every one of these jackets on the daily.

Rag & Bone - $550
After going shopping with friends and pointing out this jacket, I have learned that it is not loved by all. But I think it's so effortless and edgy that it can be worn with the simplest of outfits but still maintain personality.

Rebecca Minkoff - $698
Anyone that knows me absolutely HAS to know that I am a loyal Rebecca Minkoff lover. I feel as though every piece she makes is so unique and everything down to the zippers is specifically chosen, creating a gorgeous piece. This jacket is no exception.

Cut25 by Yigal Azrouel - $895
Just take a minute and stare at this jacket. By far, this is my favorite jacket of all time. I am obsessed with it and quite frankly I need it. As you can see from the model, you don't have to wear anything crazy for this jacket to look incredible. I would wear it with a plain black tee and skinny jeans any and every day of the week.

Diane von Furstenberg - $1,200
I was honestly shocked to see this was designed by DVF because it's a bit edgier than her normal look, but I think the mix between the classic silhouette and the edgy studs makes it wearable, unique, and pretty awesome!

Georgie - $318
Army green is one of my favorite colors to wear because it passes for a neutral but it also makes a bit more of a statement than your basic black. This color is so gorgeous and I absolutely love the  quilting.

Ohne Titel - $1,250
This jacket is so trendy and fashionable right now. The slight peplum bottom mixed with two-tone leather definitely makes a statement. This jacket could be worn day and night flawlessly.

IRO - $1,198
Okay, fine, I'll admit it...I fell in love with this jacket once I saw it on new Real Housewife of Bev Hills, Yolanda. She wore it in royal blue and it looked absolutely amazing on her, probably because of the contrast with her blond hair and fair skin. Here it is in pink, which is equally as attention-grabbing. I love the detailing around this jacket and the bold zippers giving it the edgy biker look.

For someone loving the classic look of the typical black leather motorcycle jacket but yearning for a bit more edge and uniqueness, this is your jacket. I love the uneven hem at the bottom and the zipper pulls hanging down. 

Joe's Jeans - $298
So once you already have your classic jackets you may want to try something a little more crazy and daring like this one. Surely this wouldn't be your only spring jacket because it's a little much to wear daily, but nonetheless, this jacket is awesome and would be a great statement.

Rebecca Minkoff - $1,198
If you've read my blog posts before you would know that I try not to include the same designer twice in one post. But after seeing this gorgeous jacket, realistically, how could I resist? This jacket is absolutely stunning, but again, it's Rebecca Minkoff so no surprise there.
