Spring is in the air! Or, well, it's supposed to be... but instead it seems as though on the very first day of Spring New York will be treated to a little dusting of snow instead. What a cruel, cruel trick for Mother Nature to play. But for those of you who are smart enough to live in a more temperate climate, or just lucky enough to take a little Spring break vacation asap, I wanted to create a little Spring preview/ trend story to inspire you, so I enlisted the help of talented NYC photographer Zach Hyman to create some of the images you see above. My girls at the soon-to-launch beauty destination Joli Beauty Bar assisted with creating the beachy and bronzed beauty look. Because if you can't get away, you can at least fake it with messy, wind-blown waves and sun-kissed skin. As for the looks I put together, I would say they're one part festival, one part beach bum, and one part sophistication, melding together breezy fabrics, delicate textures, subtle prints and just a dash of color to create a go-to wardrobe that I can easily see myself living in come Spring.
Lucky for me, I'm busting out of NYC this morning before the storm hits and taking off to Houston for a little birthday getaway for my man, so hopefully by the time you're reading this I'll already be in warmer pastures. Come follow me on instagram if you want to see me getting down and dirty, Texas rodeo style (you think I'm kidding) and if not, I'll see ya'll next week!
