Fine, I’ll just come out and say it: I’m totally addicted to all things nautical! Stripes, anchors, the combination of red, white and blue – I’m naturally attracted to all these things. So while doing my daily new arrivals research I had this idea of creating a Budget Look with a nautical theme. Do you like it?
This spring we are celebrating the return of color! Well, Spring fashion is always pretty colorful, but this year I feel like designers have come to really appreciate all those beautiful vibrant colors like acid pink, lime green or cobalt blue. Especially in the footwear department. I’ve seen so many new colorful spring styles lately, it’s amazing. Neon pink seems to be one of the most used, trending colors for shoes now. Below you can see some of my top picks. Which leads me to my question: would you wear hot pink shoes? I admit it’s not for the faint of heart, but if worn with black/white/neutrals and accessorized with other neon accessories (in moderation, of course, e.g. a pink watch or matching pink lip maybe), I think it would make a really great statement look. But what do you think?

Most of us embrace the whole nude trend this year, but WHOA! Leighton Meester seems to be especially smitten with it. The actress was papped a few days ago arriving at the Gossip Girl set in a nude Céline shirt dress with matching nude ankle boots. To set off her neutral outfit Leighton added red Balenciaga shades and a cute vintage-y box bag, also by Céline. Casual, trendy and chic. I am starting to warm up to Leighton’s off-duty style.
