Juicy Fruit

I never thought i would say this, but all these neon colors and bursts of bright feel so refreshing for spring. I can't wait to start experiencing. More spring picks! (see other picks here)

Clockwise from left:

Christopher Kane - Jil Sander - Crumpet - Diane Von Furstenberg - Marc Jacobs - Bottega Veneta - Miu Miu - Isabel Marant - Yves Saint Laurent


Rock Stars

Those two together are kind of the ideal match. And it's so refreshing to see Kate in Blue jeans, they're such a perfect color. I just love the whole look: the blend of feminine and masculine, casual and effortless.

It hasn't been trench weather in Montreal yet, but it was when i was in nyc a couple weeks ago. Couldn't wait to break it out, it's such a spring staple for me. And i know that the new skirt length is below the knee, but you'll have a hard time tearing me away from my minier-than-thou hem lines.

Dress - H&M (very old, unearthed it recently!)
Sweater - Zara
Shoes - Sigerson Morrison
Trench - Zara
Bag - Bottega Veneta
Fur scarf - Vintage (grandfather's)

I Can See Me Through You

Another spring collection that captured my heart (see the others here and here). Rachel makes such cute wearable clothes, just the kind of easy elegance any girl would aspire to. And her shoes are killer.

All Eyes On You

Karmen Pedaru never ceases to impress me, on and off duty. She's got one of the best personal styles among her peers, in my humble opinion.

Jungle Love

I love seeing the new faces that have captivated me on the runway in editorials. Britt got her big break during the spring summer shows last season opening for Alex Wang and was taken to the next level when she chopped off her hair to walk for Balenciaga. Let us see her in more editorials, she looks amazing. This is from April's German Vogue

Lil' Doe

Columbine wearing Céline. It don't get much better than that.


Dries is the Word

I'm gonna go ahead and ignore the fact that the weather is super shitty and that spring is hiding out somewhere (damn those lying groundhogs!!) and just keep providing warm weather inspiration. In the spirit of posting my favorite spring collections (started here with Mr. Lam), my next springtime infatuation comes courtesy of none other than one of my favorite designers, Dries Van Noten. His spring collection followed a stunning fall affair and he just basically keeps getting better. I need to get my hands on a pair of his shoes.

Le Printemps

I always really enjoy the French Elle editorials. There's such a natural french flair about them, kind of chicness personified.I haven't seen Caroline do anything in a while and she looks gorgeous and so fresh in the spring collections. It was quite hard to narrow down my favorite shots.
