For young, perhaps still a bit naïve and girlish moms. Provoking with their innocence, they are beautiful and fascinating, consciously expressing their personality. This M. Haskell for Inc is perfect, it syndicates gorgeous oranges with stunning pink and looks fabulous with gold-tone mixed metallic dresses or tops.

This is the second look from the photo shoot that took place back in March (coldest day of that month, hence the scarf and sweater cape). Once again as an added bonus you get to look at some amazing photography shot by John Rounds.

The shoes by Jessica Simpson will make your legs look impossibly long and are incredibly comfortable.

Last time I forgot to mention that we shot these posts at the Lehigh University. Located in Bethlehem, PA and established in 1865 it is one of the most beautiful college campuses in Pennsylvania.

POPULAR NOW

The oversized cardigans and sweaters made news on the fall runways but they can easily take you seamlessly between seasons in style. Popular way to wear them is with Spring-inspired floral, lace bodice dresses that reflect the loveliness of this season.

This satin and suede triple strap sandal in one of the Spring’s hottest hues, fandango pink, is definitely summer and spring appropriate. Popular way to wear the ankle strap sandals is with rolled up high boyfriend jeans, which are an any-season style staple.

A roomy leather tote bag will be the hot handbag style in the months ahead. Popular way to wear is with edgy crepe flower print trousers. This is a great low-maintenance look for vacation, totally stress-free sexy style.

Super skinny jeans are the ultimate spring wear. They’ll keep you looking and feeling cool all season long. Popular way to wear them is with neon high heel sandals. It is a fresh and unexpected way to spice up your look.

This look is smart and casual, the new spring trend for everybody. Flared skirts look great on pretty much everyone. Popular way to wear them is with sexy oversized leather clutches. It is a super glamorous chic with a polished modern attitude style.

Checks Checked, From Runway to Street-24/7 Dressing.

A Fashion Page is a laboratory site where I can test my more radical fashion ideas. I post my most original looks or outfits that hopefully will make my readers and followers reexamine how they look at clothes. Today my “checks on denim” look is a reinterpretation of classic military theme, completely nontraditional and right for the street style.

And a special thanks to John Rounds who shot my "checks checked" story and produced most stunning images ever. He is a modern renaissance man and you can take a look at his breathtaking portfolio here. His photos capture the fun, dynamism and beauty of fashion. Can't wait to our next photoshoot! We are also planning on featuring a model next time but can't say more at this time. Also anyone interested in wearing beautiful outfits (put together by me) and having awesome images taken by John for our AFP blog please contact me here.

From Runway to Street -24/7 Dressing.

Today we'll going to cover the veracity of 24/7 dressing as we tackle the issue of looking contemporary at work and stylish on the weekend.

AT WORK

It all comes down to knowing how to interpret the yin and yang of your daily demands into clothes that surely work for you. You really can't go wrong with white cotton-cashmere blend jumper. (below from Proenza Schouler featuring a crew neck, long sleeves, a ribbed knit and an asymmetric hem)

WEEKEND

I'm continuously fascinated by the trendy ways New York uptown women deal with changing their weekend wear.

Layla Leather Waterfall Drape is a wonderful piece to throw over just about anything a dress, sweater or blouse a perfect blazer to wear on your weekends.

AT WORK

My belief is that most of us fall into two types: Those who have a diverse closet for each situation (refined BCBG or Paul Smith suits for Monday through Friday, and casual Majestic long sleeve turtleneck and Cheap and Chic Moschino skinny trousers for Saturday and Sunday), and those who mandate more out of their separates and pair the same Paul Smith blazer with Cheap and Chic Moschino trousers on the weekend and a skirt from Chicwish during the week. I do a little of both.  I love to dress up though and the butterfly pattern that prettifies this cotton parka below is a keynote that Valentino is advocating for the season forward, and I love it juxtaposed against the iconic, down-to-earth silhouette. Or this amazing laser-cut shearling that was applied to a BCBG Max Azaria camel coat in a lattice pattern, so imaginative and fantastic but yet still very classic.

WEEKEND

So sometimes on the weekend I love to dress up in dresses and floppy hats; other times, for a walk in a park with my two adorable munchkins, I wear moto boots, leather jacket and cozy shearling coat over it to stay extra warm in this crazy whether. This Forever New slim leg pant is a clothing essential this season and is a seamless addition to your work wear style as well, and can be easily worn from the office to an evening out.

AT WORK

The chicest women also know that getting a look right doesn't stop with their clothes and basics. How you wear your accessories can be equally important. While I love the new fringe bag trends, you need to decide what works with your style and your lifestyle. This Prada Saffiano Two Zip Lux Tote is a staple to those who want both functionality and chic style.

Philip Lim dress to keep it simple.
