    Awesome post. I am digging the signature jacket this season and I on the hunt for a perfect one.
    You need to do a post on how to tie scarves especially like in #2!

    I’m well on my way – I’ve got four of six COVERED.

    I am obsessed with Audrey Hepburnā€™s lady-like dresses. Must start looking online now. . .

    This ‘6 Spring Essentials’ reminds me of that game on Sesame Street “One of these things is not like the others”. I’m loving all of these looks but who put up the ‘Long Cardigan’ picture. Martin + Osa have some really great things but this belongs in a ‘Forever 38’ shop. Kudos on the Victoria Ruffle Cami though.

    Beautiful things here. Love the sweet pops of pure color — and the ever-so-affordable Gap trousers. More, more!

    Love the silk ruffle dress–what a great find!

    I love them all, but can’t get past the shapeless trend (long cardigan). Hopefully that’ll pass soon.

    Love the skirt though, very fun!

    Actually, the Long Cardigan is much more figure flattering than the picture suggests. I own two, and they’re beautiful, lightweight, and extremely versatile. Martin + Osa’s long cardigan doesn’t hang straight down; instead, it’s ever-so-slightly body hugging. Plus, it’s the classic version: four buttons with two small pockets at the front. Try this one on in stores (or order it online; the site offers free return shipping).

    I JUST bought a pair of wide leg trousers from forever21 that I am absolutely in LOVE with!!!
    Great for work and then drinks afterwards!
