Spring Trend 2015 – Pale Neutrals

Hello everybody! Today we are talking about neutrals. I know, we covered this fashion color trend before in the past, but this season pale neutrals seem to be more important in ready-to-wear fashion than ever before. We like shades of sand, wheat and pearl gray.

Spring and Summer are all about light pale colors such as blush, peach, nude, beige and silver. They are easy to wear if you think of them as an alternative to your winter black or brown. Neutral shoes look great with denim, pastel colors, shades of khaki and camel as well as white.

WTWW: Coclico “Ziggy” Sandal

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. 

 

WTWW Coclico Ziggy Sandal
Oh Spring, won’t you please get here soon? That way we can start to wear shoes like this stunning bootie/sandal from Coclico! We think it’s the perfect style to wear with warmer weather pieces such as culottes, midi dresses and jumpsuits. But they would equally look as fab with your slouchy jeans too. Now, if it only would stop raining. Sigh.

Happy Friday! Have a beautiful weekend.

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Snapshots of NYC

Snapshots of NYC

Times Square

This Monday I was musing about our recent trip last week to New York.  It was cold, dark and at times downright frigid outside. But, I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from the Big Apple. While we did go to attend a trade show and visit some showrooms, we mostly went to spend time in the city and have some fun with our son. It was his birthday week and he had never been to New York,  so it was the perfect excuse to take him with us and spend some quality family time too.

I am the worst at taking pictures when there is no proper lighting. Plus, I was having so much fun with the fam that half the time I would forget to take pictures. But I did manage to take a few snapshots with my iPhone. It looks like I spent most of my time looking up or looking down.

Other than visiting with friends and eating great food, the highlights for me were the American Museum of Natural History, the Matisse Shapes Exhibit at MOMA and attending a Broadway show.

What do you like to do when you visit New York? Thank you as always for stopping by our little blog. Have a great week! xo ~ Maggie
