Spring has finally sprung and it's time to bring the lighter fabrics and brighter colors out of hibernation. If you are still in a neutral-hued rut (like me) ease yourself into the colors of spring by throwing a brightly colored faux leather jacket on top of your blacks, whites, and greys. I think my new favorite skirt silhouette is the tulip maxi - more interesting than a regular high-lo hemline but it still flows beautifully behind you while running in your heels (as I did, when I was late to meet Bonnie). You can pick this one up for $20 bucks at your local Target! I also couldn't pass up Spring's lace up footwear trend, these JustFab beauties were a recent acquisition and I am so in love.

These pictures were shot by Bonnie Sen, a local photographer. We got together about a month ago for this shoot and although we had just met, she made me feel super comfortable in front of the camera and provided great direction on how to subtly change the pose and angles to get the right shot. The proof of her skills are all in the photos - amazing focus, details, and lighting... and it all makes my point and shoot shots look meager in comparison! Thanks for the pix, Bonnie, and hope to work with you again soon!

Have an amazing weekend!
