We’re having beautiful weather here in Seattle (sorry, East Coast!) and we’re eagerly looking forward to spring. It has us reaching for lace and pastel colors, like this cute lace shift:

hero

lace shift dress | $48

Why we love it:

The easy shape. We love the silhouette of this dress—it isn’t too fitted, which makes it easy to wear, but the shorter hem keeps the look fresh and flirty.

The bell sleeves. When we look at these sleeves, we can’t help but think about the ’60s and ’70s. We love that this little dress incorporates that boho style while still making it modern and new.

The breezy style. We can’t attribute the dress’s airy nature to just one element—everything works together here to create a carefree look we can’t pass up. If you have a free-spirited spring/summer in front of you, you’re gonna want this dress in your closet.

We spend so much time talking about clothes, but sometimes an outfit is all about the details. In that spirit, we’re turning our attention to one of our favorite layering pieces this season: the triple chevron necklace.
hero

triple chevron necklace | $16

Why we love it:

The boho style. We seriously love the vibe of this necklace — we see it paired with a flowy Free People top, a sweet hat and fringed bag for that effortless one-with-the-wind look.

The layering option. This little necklace is perfect on it’s own, but because of it’s delicate nature, it also goes great with other lightweight chains. Layer it with some of your favorite necklaces (like this one or this one) to get the trend.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! And we’re getting into the lovey-dovey spirit with this adorable red lace dress:

herolace skater dress | $48

Why we love it:

The lace. When you see lace, don’t you automatically think romance? No matter who your Special Someone is this year (hellooo BFF), go ahead and dress up in this flirty lace dress.

The color. This red is perfect for Valentine’s Day. It shows you’re getting into the spirit of the holiday, but isn’t so over-the-top that you’ll never wear it again. We can absolutely see this dress paired with tights and a jacket in the winter, or paired with a lightweight scarf and sandals this summer.

The fit. The fitted bodice and flared skirt gives this little number a feminine look. Don’t be shy about playing up your girly side!

Meet O.C.C.

If you weren’t already aware, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (O.C.C.) is a super cool cosmetics company and I want to give you guys a quick down-low. O.C.C. is a 100% vegan and cruelty-free makeup brand. It was founded in 2004 by a New York City makeup artist, David Klasfeld. His motivation to create this brand was his desire to feed the needs of makeup artists who craved more options in color, texture and selection.

After using these products, I think Klasfeld has succeeded in his mission. They felt completely innovative!

I especially love that they have lip tars in four styles: primer, matte, metallic and stained gloss.

You need barely any product and the application is flawless. Just apply a little to the back of your hand from the tube and apply to your lips with a lip brush or finger.

 

They also have extremely creamy, quick and easy application colour pencils. They can be used as multi-purpose products. Here I wear it as a lip color and as an eyeliner.

We don’t highlight accessories often in our picks of the week, but this bucket bag is too good to pass up. Can’t you see yourself with this little thing slung over your shoulder? We can!

herobucket bag | $38

Why we love it:

Use it any season. We love the look of this bag because it’s so versatile. Both the Black and the Cognac colors fit right into winter, but also totally transition into your go-to summer bag.

The size is perfect. It isn’t too big that you can’t take it on a hike, but it isn’t so small that you can’t fit anything in it. Load this baby up with all your must-haves, pop it over your shoulder and be on your way.

The details. The bucket-like shape of this bag goes well with boho styles and biker-chic alike. Plus the golden hardware and the playful tassel? You can’t go wrong.

We’re in the middle of January, and we can’t stop our obsession with coats and jackets. So when we saw this peplum moto jacket, we had to show it off. It’s too cute not to!

 Why we love it:

The coated finish. We love that this jacket is coated to give it a sleek leathery look. It enhances the cool moto vibe and gives the jacket an edgy, on-trend texture.

The girly peplum. The ruffled peplum hem adds a flirty, feminine touch that’s so perfect for this jacket — it adds a light-hearted finish that balances the edgy moto style. Not to mention it hits at just the right spot to highlight your waist!

Plus, this jacket also comes in a creamy ivory color — it’s perfect for spring!

Happy New Year! Did you guys make resolutions for 2015? If your goals have anything to do with fitness, then we have just the thing for you: A pretty yoga mat!

hero

Why we love it:

It’s practical. If you’re like us, you’ve resolved to be a little more active this year. And what better way to start than with some yoga? It’s fun to do with friends or easy to just grab your mat and do some stretches right in your room at home.

It’s pretty! Have you ever seen a yoga mat this cool? Didn’t think so. We love the fun geo print and the appealing color choices. If we’d get any yoga mat, it’d be one of these!

Looking for the perfect winter coat without breaking the bank? Check out my top three picks to top off your style without breaking the bank:

1. Houndstooth Wool Blend Mac Coat
This Topman single-breasted blended coat is the perfect blend between retro and modern fashion. I love the black-and-white woven design and double cuffs.

2. Single Breasted Hooded Coat
Opting for a simple-but-sporty look? Try out this Black Rivet hooded coat. I personally love peacoats with hoods because they add a casual feel to your look.

3. Herringbone Shooting Jacket
Last but not least, my favorite: the Brown Kane & Unke Jacket. This jacket adds a touch of class to your everyday look. The convertible stand collar and wooden buttons really make the brown underlay pop.

Caroline’s Guide to Gifting

While the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift can be exciting and fun, it can also be a bit stressful, especially when you have six different besties (like me) who all have completely different personalities. Oh ’tis the season for givin’!

1. Techy Chick
We all know (and love) this girl. She’s constantly on her phone tweeting every detail of her life and her hunt for the latest and greatest apps can come quite in handy. No doubt she’s had a couple run-ins in the school halls while updating her profile pic but, hey—if she’s happy, we’re happy.

2.Girly Gal
This girl gets ready for school every day and struts through the halls like they’re her runway. Anything pink and sparkly is a must and if the lip gloss ain’t poppin’ she’ll be stoppin’ (to re-apply of course).

3.Boho Babe
And lastly we have the boho chick. She loves outdoor concerts, long hikes in the forest and can always be expected to have the coolest new indie jams playing on her iPod. But don’t be mistaken, this gal’s effortless hipster wardobe doesn’t come without some…well…effort.

See, finding the perf gift isn’t as hard as you thought. Just remember, it’s the thought that really counts and when in doubt, give ‘em food, haha. :) Happy hunting!

Yours truly,
Caroline
