OUR MUST-HAVE PICKS FOR SPRING, PART 2


The new season is not for the shy. It’s all about throwing something a little unexpected into the mix. Be it a pop of color, a new silhouette, or an item you thought you’d never bring back from the ‘90s.

This Cynthia Rowley (on sale now) gem chimes in beautifully with the art-house vibe of the season, yet still feels like a forever item. Wear it now with cool booties  or high-heeled ankle booties and a denim jacket. To channel a more minimalist look, this one by Rag & Bone works well (we even love the idea of wearing this with Stan Smiths or Converse high tops ). Come summer, you can pair both of these dresses with sandals. For a more relaxed daytime style, a great pair of denim is essential. The new season of denim is not only more flattering (think slimmer, tapered legs), it's also infinitely more feminine and easy to dress up and down. Our current obsessions are by MIH and Rag & Bone . For daytime, roll the cuffs and team your denim with a jersey tee, a cashmere sweater, and sneakers–our current obsession are Stan Smiths and Mother of Pearl slip-ons. Should sneakers not be your thing, these cool loafers look equally great. For night, reach for a cool pair of booties or pumps and a tailored blazer or this collarless version layered over a black tee. As for accessories and handbags, see our Mother’s Day picks below.

HEAD TO TOE RAINY DAY

Showers in the forecast call for sturdy yet chic separates.

With this chilly, wet weather, it’s the perfect time to rock your trench coat. This season we’re loving long, loose silhouettes that feel sophisticated, like this style by Zara. We opted for a casual, rainproof look, but it also looks great worn over a dress with heels. Jeans are always a durable pick for rain showers, and this distressed pair by Mother feels a bit more spring-y thanks to its light wash. This 10 Crosby Derek Lam top is brilliant and versatile because it’s a 2-in-1: the shell underneath can be worn alone or with the striped knit “sweatshirt”. Continue the theme with a convertible bag like this version by Kara. It can be worn backpack style over the shoulder or cross-body. The vibrant blue color feels fresh for spring and summer and is a nice departure from all the black we’ve been toting around the past few months. Rubber ankle boots are the savviest footwear choice. If rain boots don’t do it for you, try a pair of leather sneakers. We love this fun metallic pair by Acne Studios. Pair with a simple sterling signet ring and you’re good to go.

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

Mother's Day. We know, we know: it’s seemingly impossible to hit the nail on the head and give a gift that your Mom actually likes (or wants).

So, whether you’re buying for your mom, sister, sister-in-law, or just looking to send hints to your other half, here are some gift ideas that will have you covered.


A DAY BAG

Every woman needs a great everyday bag. Clare Vivier’s duffle grand version in white  is a perfect gift for moms, especially when personalized with either her name or the name of her child (2- or 4-legged!). The white color looks awesome the more you wear it in. Trust us. Or go for the shape of the season: a backpack. Yup, they're back this season. Don’t worry, this doesn’t require buying Chanel’s graffiti versionThe fashion world simply uses it as inspiration for more practical, alternative versions like this or this one. Choose from minimalist styles like this or this, or fun, colorfuledgy, and splurge-worthy styles.


BLUE APRON

For the mom that loves to cook or wants to love to cook, a subscription to Blue Apron is the way to go. This weekly service delivers fresh, sustainably farmed, pre-portioned ingredients straight to your door, accompanied by beautifully printed recipe cards with step-by-step instructions. The gourmet recipes all range from 500-700 calories, and meal plans start at $9.99 per person per meal. Present the gift with a monogrammed apron, and you’re golden. She’ll never have to worry about what’s for dinner again.


HEATHERS THE MUSICAL

Well, “f*ck me gently with a chainsaw,” the 1988 dark comedy classic Heathers has been adapted into an off-Broadway musical! This is one guilty pleasure we don’t want to miss, and neither will that special (Gen-X) lady in your life.


JEWELRY

Jewelry is more personal. Jennifer Meyer’s pieces are simple, exquisite, and designed to be worn every day. Our favorite is this “Mommy” necklace, for which 20% of sales will be donated to Baby2Baby. Diamonds may be forever, but pearls are so… right now. Two great picks: Tom Binns’ Spider and Pearl Earrings and Lele Sadoughi Pearl Round Slider Bracelet.
