Celebrating Spring In Technicolor: What Colors to Invest in This Year


Last week, on another very rainy day, Megan and I headed down to Palo Alto. We decided to take the morning to visit the large Anthropologie near Stanford and find inspiration for a new season. We'll share more on that trip and the other reason behind the visit in a later blog.

Today, we are talking about COLOR! In the past we have blogged about the top Pantone colors of the season and guided all of you in what colors to invest in. This spring, we are letting the clothes do the talking. There are so many refreshing pops of brights this year that winter already feels like a distant memory.

Find A Hue For You

Snappy orange, powder blue, and mustard yellow are all popular colors this season. Brights are sometimes tough to master, but know this bright orange-red works with my coloring.

ProTip: Add brights slowly and pair with a neutral. I.e. Bright orange looks great with navy, camel, white or grey...avoid black for the sharp contrast.


Add A Fun Print

I feel like we constantly are talking about florals on this blog, but the fashion world keeps on serving up more. This season vintage-inspired florals are popular and I fell in love with this 1950s rose denim skirt. It reminds me of a skirt I had in elementary school, so I suppose there is a strong nostalgia factor. If florals are not for you try a happy polka dot or fruity colorful stripe both are also popular this year.


Experiment With The Unexpected

It was fun playing with this skirt and exploring different ensembles by mixing and matching what I could find in store. Since it is still chilly in most of the country, my natural choice with a cozy turtleneck sweater. I'm kicking myself now for not picking it up when I found it because it is sold out on line.

To change the look and push the skirt toward evening or a party, I swapped out the orange components with pieces with a little more lux. After a quick trip to the sale section paired the skirt with a burgundy suede sandal and gold metallic blouse.

Painted Ladies: Our Favorite Nail Salons In San Francisco

IMG_4435 2.jpg

A few months ago Megan and I blogged that we were taking a beauty detox and letting our nails go nude for a bit. I enjoyed taking a little more time to nourish my nails and continued the detox for two and a half months. After a long week at a photo shoot and a calendar full of upcoming shopping trips, this week I decided to treat myself to a manicure and paint my nails for the first time this year. While I loved the extended break, it feels good to be polished again.

Over the years Megan and I have had our fair share of experiences at local salons. Because we consider it a treat, we appreciate when a salon will go the extra mile to make you feel pampered and keep their space spotless. Here is a list of our current favorite salons in the city. If you are looking for our favorite "healthy" nail salons you can cross reference them here.

Hubert Givenchy: Celebrating Parisian Chic Style

Earlier this week, the great French designer Hubert de Givenchy passed away. Not only was he a pioneer in high-end ready-to-wear clothing, but for more than half a century his designs symbolized Parisian chic and elegance - a style that will live on.

A Muse and Icon

Givenchy may be best known for designing Audrey Hepburn's black dress from "Breakfast at Tiffany's." As his muse and dear friend, he continued on to style her for seven movies total. Some of these films include "Sabrina"(Kimberly's Favorite), "Funny Face" and "How to Steal a Million." If you haven't seen any of these films, head to Netflix right now and start binging. The drama and celebration of the female form is stunning!

A Collection of a Lifetime

Kimberly and I were inspired to share some of our favorite looks on this Pinterest Board. If you are curious to see the arch of some of Givenchy's creations check them out here.


Givenchy lead a fascinating life that stretched far beyond just his design skills. CNN Style did a great article about his life, passion, rise to style stardom, and the legacy that he leaves behind. We highly recommend that you give it a read!

Stay Stylish,
