I used cupcake with creamsicle on my ring as an accent nail.  These sorbet shades are perfect for spring and wear like a champ!  Plus the jelly formula is spot on!  These have been and will continue to be in heavy rotation!  Especially paired with my new favorite ring, the In A Flash Ring ($16).  I love pairing my mani and this ring with my new favorite set of lady like accessories!

Put Some Spring In Your Step – with pastels, gold and PG + T Nolita pumps!

Who else has spring fever!?!  I’m ready for all things spring… everything fresh, blooming flowers and most of all warmer weather.  I usually miss out on spring fashion because I jump from winter to summer and forget that window inbetween because I’m usually just cold or hot… or at least I dress like its hot then put on a winter sweater because its not.  This year however I’m NOT doing that!  Thanks to all the inspiration on Pinterest, wearing spring fashion is as easy as adding a few key pieces into your wardrobe.

Pastel Perfection

Pastel Perfection

First step… adding color!  All things pastels are hitting high notes this season so starting with this aqua color top pretty much sets the stage for a good spring fever outfit!  Since it is still a little chilly the long chiffon sleeves help keep off the chill but as temps warm up this would look equally as chic with shorts.  This one is from Buckle but you can find a pastel top with sheer detailing pretty much at any store these days.

Second step… finding a good pair of ankle pants.  They’re just enough of a break at the hem to say hello spring! but still keep you warm like pants do.  Since its “technically” still winter anchoring your pastels with black keeps the look of the season.  These Great Details Pants from mark. have been in and out of sale so check back at my eBoutique or direct message me.

Third Step… it’s all in the details!  Your accessories will take you further than you think.  Try switching to gold, rose gold, brass to warm things up.  I’ve been OBSESSED with these new JUST LAUNCHED jewelry pieces from mark.  The Styles and Stones Bracelet ($24) is such a lady like piece with fresh blush colored faux pearls and clear stones making it my spring must have pick!  Pair it with the In A Flash Ring ($16) and you got yourself some serious charm going on.  Also from mark. the Moonlighting Necklace ($18 – worn extended) is a more dainty piece to pair with the larger pieces.  Shop all the new arrivals at my eBoutique:  http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com

Since my spring fever has officially hit be prepared for a crap load of more spring inspired posts heading your way!  What have you done to put a little spring in your step?

Dressing Like A First Lady With The Right Accessories

In the wake of the election there’s no denying there’s always been a slight fascination with the presidential first family especially the First Ladies for us ladies.  Let’s be real though, Michelle’s arms don’t help our economy, Hillary’s hair does not dictate our foreign policy and Jackie O’s sunglasses don’t shield us from war however I have no problem obsessing over it all and they will always be a bit of a fashion icon.  So in honor of their chic lady like style here’s my red white and blue election day look.

First Lady Like Look

First Lady Like Look

The key is in the accessories!  A skater dress lays out the perfect canvas.  I personally find this navy jersey dress from Loft outlet to be perfect.  By itself this dress is not nearly as exciting or flattering but add a wide belt from White House Black Market and you have a fit and flare style highlighting all the right places.  Pile on the right accessories and you’ve bumped the dress from common to presidential!  That and maybe my Jackie O influenced Marc Jacobs sunglasses…

The spotlight of this look is the Over Ice necklace ($30) from mark.  It has that 60’s appeal but made modern.  The chunky hematite chain makes this necklace wearable with a casual sweater or your best LBD.  Also from mark are the Star Studded Earrings ($14) and the Glove Story Gloves ($24).  Gloves are having a major moment right now worn with everything from your parka to your chic office wear and these red genuine leather version are the perfect price, quality and style!  They kinda hide my watch and navy and rhinestone bracelet but I love it when they peek out!  Last but not least… the red lips!  I also lined my eyes in blue and used white eyeshadow but you can’t see… anything to theme out the day I tell ya!
