Good news — you only have to shave half of your legs this spring! It’s the season of the midi skirt, a hemline that ranges anywhere from just below the knee to just above the ankle. Whether you go for a 1950’s voluminous tea length style or prefer something sleek and fitted, the midi skirt adds a touch of old-school elegance to just about any look.

Despite the forecast for extended winter (thanks for nothin’, Punxsutawney Phil!) the spring trends are rolling out and one of the best is sports-inspired pieces. Not only is this a rare anyone-can-wear-it trend, but also, there are endless ways to rock it. These two looks are our favorite–unexpected sporty stripes make this dress perfect for work or play and we’d wear that jacket with just about everything we own!

Later: blazer, veromoda.com, earrings, buablebar.com, tee, adidas.com, bag, zara.com, heels, us.asos.com
All these heavy winter clothes are staring to weigh us down. Those days of longing to curl up in a cozy sweater by the fire are gone. We’d prefer a breezy dress thank.you.very.much! However, since warm, sunny days are still in the distant future we’re focusing on how to wear our current wardrobes through that frightfully awkward period known as “transitional weather.” The key is investing in one or two gorgeous, statement pieces that not only lift your mood, but also provide a canvas to style both winter and spring outfits around. I mean, can we get a HELLO GORGEOUS to that skirt–just looking at it we feel better already. Pair it with neutrals for winter then step up your fashion game in spring by pairing it with an unexpected complimentary color (we promise purple and peach match, just look here!)

When we aren’t busy throwing on extra layers to brave the cold, we’re probably daydreaming about being somewhere tropical…or at least somewhere relatively warm. While bathing suit shopping might be jumping the gun a bit (especially since that gym membership resolution hasn’t kicked in yet…), sunglasses are totally fair game! Click through to shop some of our favorite shapes and styles.

Now that March has begun (can you feel yourself thawing?), we’re officially getting excited for all things spring – budding blooms, swinging sundresses, and, perhaps best of all, fresh punches of color in our living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. What shade is on our radar this spring? Honeysuckle – a warm, playful pink that Pantone, the keeper of all things color, chose as the 2011 Color of the Year. The spring color forecast was laid out by committee last year (that’s right – they get together just to choose the colors that we’ll covet!), and we’re already seeing honeysuckle appear in some of our favorite spring decor choices.
This pretty pattern is sure to get you in the spirit for spring, with pops of honeysuckle among fresh green details. Bed Bath & Beyond

LastWednesday, Punxsutawney Phil officially reported that spring is on its way! Whether you believe that a groundhog can actually predict a change in the temperature or not, this year’s guess certainly gives us hope that flowers will soon be in bloom. With winter on its way out, it’s fun to start thinking about lightening up your makeup routine with softer colors and sheerer textures.
When it’s cold and snowy, we tend to shy away from bright pink lipcolor. As spring approaches don’t be afraid to push aside that matte lipstick and opt for a pinky gloss instead. I’m obsessed with Lancôme Juicy Tubes Ultra Shiny Lipgloss in Spring Fling, $18. It’s one of those glosses that’s appropriate for all occasions.
Metallics are also very on-trend this spring, but can easily veer into 70’s disco territory when overdone. Keep your look sophisticated with a light wash of color on your lids. Dot L’Oreal Paris HIP Metallic Duo in Gilded, $8, at the inner corners of your eyes for a subtle highlight.
Purple eye shadow is always spring-friendly and easy to wear. Blend a plummy shade with a neutral champagne to ease into the color. Maybelline New York’s ExpertWear Eyeshadow Quad in Lavender Smokes, $6.25, has four pretty shades.

Spring is here! Need proof? Aside from my occasional allergy attacks and the absence of warm winter boots in storefront windows (never did get around to purchasing that pair I so longed for) fresh lilac is abundant! I walked past the flower stall on my street this morning and there it was—the sweet fragrance of spring in full purple bloom. I grabbed several bunches and threw together this arrangement. It makes me want to eat a pastry, drink a mimosa, and sing to the hills like Fraulein Maria. I don’t know why.
Here’s a tip: remove all of the leaves from the stems for a clean and simple arrangement. I like to use a large, wide-mouthed vase for a Provencal look. These Regency Long Tom grey pots from Restoration hardware would look amazing on just about any table. What type of floral arrangement screams spring to you?
