Spring is here! I love spring. It's so full hope, cozy draped sweaters and bare shoulders. Particularly in SoCal, this spring means a few clear-cut rules that the community as a whole are pretty darn thankful for:

  1. Cute shoes. Your fleece-lined UGGS and slippers are awesomely comfortable for the house, but they are NOT date night attire. I don't know why this seems to be an ongoing issue in my neck of the woods.
  2. Pastels and bright white. You can all emerge from your black-and-grey hideout now. It's beautiful over here in the colorful world.
  3. Button-down shirts. Give me a button-down shirt and I can match it with just about anything. Skirt, pants, dress. No problem.
  4. Skirts. Those of you who have been SO unnerved by the legging trend now have another option. I'm not making any promises that you'll be seeing less of MY spandex-covered butt, but at least the fashion tides seem to be turning your way.
  5. Striped pants, giant bangles, crazy patterns and other Spanish-inspired looks. ¡Ole!
