One of my favorite models, Liya Kebede, looks stunning in this story by Patrick Demarchelier from the April issue of Vogue Italia.
There are so many beautiful elements in this Pacific Palisades home, especially the color used in the kitchen.

Scallop-edging, piping, topstitching—I love details like these. This scallop-edged, reversible, one-shoulder swimsuit is lovely.

The first Spring flowers are finally blooming. It’s probably safe to assume that the temps will only climb from here on out. I love florals and look forward to the launch of Grace Coddington’s rose-based perfume.

I’m all about slides for spring à la vintage Jean Shrimpton.
I love the denim with white accessories trend, but I’m trying to put it together in a surprising way. Perhaps a denim dress, instead of jeans, is the answer. Although a tad unexpected, this look would be perfect for one of the many lunches I have in the next few weeks. The fitted cut of the dress makes it work.
The Spring-Summer Le Monde d’Hermès catalogue came in the mail last week and my first thought when I saw these classic bracelets wrapped in wicker was, “hmm”. The cuff is kind of great. Worn with all-white and brown sandals would be chic.
A new swimsuit is in order—this one by Next, from a story in the May issue of Vogue UK, is good-looking and practical.

Matchesfashion.com sat down with Lolita Jacobs, the newly appointed style director to the iconic French house Courrèges. The Parisian’s pared-down personal style and list of favorite designers are right up my alley.
A spring jacket fell off my list a few years ago (along with a spring coat) because the window of opportunity to wear it was too short to justify the cost. However, this one by Vince is so cute and well-priced, I’d wear it now with a turtleneck sweater and then a tank when the temps warm up—a win-win item.
There are lots of great neutrals in this story from the May issue of British Vogue. I love the Lisa Taylor vibe and the Hermès silver bracelet in the top image.

April and May are always packed with events—lunches, benefits, weddings, etc.–a mad dash before summer. I had my eye on the Miu Miu glitter sandals last winter, but didn’t buy them in the end. My friend Paula did, and they look great on her. One of these sandals would add just a bit of shine to a spring dress I already own.
The Valentino S16 Haute Couture collection is breathtakingly beautiful. Wish I had a reason to buy one of these dresses.

Italian stylist Viviana Volpicella has personal style in spades, which is why I follow her on Instagram. I’m in a bit of a wardrobe rut and had an ‘aha’ moment when I saw this pic. I’ve worn my navy blazer with jeans since forever—here it looks so chic on V.V. over a fuller pant. Going to give this pairing a try.
