Spring's Most Wearable Trends
Spring runways are covered in color.  Bold, colorful pieces-like a cardi and skirt, wrap dress or bright shirt dress, make simple dressing look glam.
We love colored jeans paired with a femine blouse in a bold pattern. Or just looking for a pop of color? Try a light weight cashmere sweater.

Style Tip:
Stick to three colors max to avoid looking like Rainbow Bright.

Colored Jeans
Who says your blue jeans can only be blue?! In one of the hottest new trends for spring and summer, many stars have been seen rocking colored denim. It's a simple way to make a statement and still be comfy! Also, pairing a colorful pair of jeans with a simple white or black top is a good way to keep it chic!

The pick for Spring's number one shade is Tangerine Tango.  And if tangerine isn't your citrus of choice, there are plenty more orange hues to choose from. Wear one color and look chic? How easy is that!
Bold Prints
There are prints, and then there are PRINTS. Vibrant, swirling, styled-head-to-toe patterns that walked down the spring 2012 runways were fabulous. There's plenty to choose from-oversize florals, mirrorlike geometric shapes, even animal prints.  Whatever you do, keep your other accessories simple, like a cropped jean, neutral wedge, or simple hoop earrings.

It's a jean frenzy...
The latest and greatest in jean trends are the pull-on (yes, you read that correctly) jean from JAG.  Ok, so we get it...they look a little maternity when they're on the rack but put (or pull) them on and bye-bye muffin top helloooo Slim!
We've been on the pull-on jean train for months but once we saw them in February's issue of Oprah's O Magazine, we knew we were right!  Because as we all know when the Fabulous Ms. O puts her stamp of approval on something, it must be good!
They're higher wasted so you don't get that stomach-roll-over-thing, they don't have a zipper or button so they're smooth under long tops, and they don't look like....dare I say....Pajama jeans when they're on, they just look like well fitting jeans. When trying on a pair go down a size, you should have to do a little wiggle-wiggle to get them on.  They will stretch and no on likes a saggy bottom. 
Go ahead try a pair...and we'll say I told you so later.

No sweatpants and sneakers: travel in style

Dress for first class: not a sweat pant or sneaker on our radar! Our tips for chic and functional airport style sure to get you an upgrade!
We get it, you want to (and should be) comfortable when you travel, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style and more importantly you don't want to get caught in your pajamas when you run into that girl that was mean to you in high school.   
I always think that the your departure outfit should have everything to do with your destination.  If you're leaving snowy Boston for sunny Aruba then put on a pair of jeans and flats with a bright tank, cute blazer and scarf.  Once you catch site of the Happy Island, cuff your pants, tuck your blazer into your carry-on and tie the scarf around your head. Voila! Island-ified!
We love Elizabeth Hurley's look when traveling through LAX, super-chic, sophisticated and upgrade worthy!

What you pack is just as important as what you pack it in.  Ditch the zip lock bags and give your make-up a little love (afterall, it works hard for you!).  We love Sondra Roberts nesting cosmetic bags in bright stripes.  There's plenty of room for all your beauty essentials, and they're even great for toting your SPF to the beach.

And if you're anything like me you're always (always) cold.  There's nothing worse than being uncomfortable on a long flight, it'll happen once and that'll be enough.  I always travel with a scarf to wrap around my neck, shoulders, legs.
Loving Love Quotes right now, they come in fabulous colors (aqua, coral, purple, pink) and can double as a bathing suit cover up.
