Colder Spring Days. Pink Chic: 5 Pink Spring Trends You'll Love!

Yet, another option for colder spring days from our chilly March photo-shoot.

More and more women are mixing destroyed denim jeans with cropped tops, denim shirts and leather biker jackets. You can also cuddle up in an extra soft, oversize turtleneck poncho.  

With Jamie’s look I think we got the balance right. The key to this look are multipurpose items that will give your wardrobe more mileage. And mileage is what most women are looking for anyways. Classic pieces that never go out of style.

Then, lest we forget, there’s the jewelry. Today it’s gold hoops, leather bracelets and watch.

Bag amped with rock & roll details- fringe and studs- turns up the volume on gutsy glamour.

Once again special thanks to our Fashion contributors: photographer John Rounds, his images are beyond reproach, if there is an essence to fashion, he has captured it, and Make-Up Artist Danika Clevenstine who creates gorgeous faces every day.

A Fashion Page Gets More Support from The Pros. Plus, Trending Now Floral Midi Skirts, Floral Blazers, Statement Bib Necklaces And More…

Getting back after a long trip, I‘m finding out that it’s not so easy to pick up where you left off. Especially that so much had happened right before I left. We had a fabulous photoshoot session, shot by our brilliant photographer John Rounds.  I am also beyond happy to announce that our team has gained more professional support from a wonderful Makeup Artist and Beauty Consultant Danika Clevenstine who is drop-dead gorgeous and a perfectionist.  Her amazing portfolio can be found on her website at http://www.makeupbydanika.com/.   I am obsessed with her artistry and can’t wait to work with her again.

Lastly the most dramatic change on our blog and I hope I am not committing a fashion blogger cardinal sin but we are going to guest feature model Jamie Klein. We’ve all literally gone loopy for her! At such young age she is beyond professional and amazing to work with. Did I mention how beautiful she is? She reminds me a little bit of a young Catherine Zeta-Jones but there is even more mystery and sultry about Jamie. She will definitely be more appealing to the younger demographic with her girlie a bit hipster slash urban appeal but with a timeless, classic beauty that completes her most definitely unforgettable look.  Big, I mean huge thank you to Teresa Klein, Jamie’s mom who is such a wonderful person to have around. She is Jamie’s greatest support and motivator, obviously doing an incredible job at raising Jamie who is truly a serious professional at the beginning of an amazing fashion career.

When we were shooting Jamie Klein for this blog post, we knew one thing; For a Spring fresh/western look and a girl this beautiful, we could go low-key with hair and makeup. Thanks to our make-up artist Danika Clevenstine’s tricks we got an amazingly fresh and gorgeous face!  I have to mention of course that the day we were shooting turned out to be one of the coldest days in March. So thinking about Spring was a little bit… should I say challenging?  Jamie makes it look seamless though and by just looking at her you’d think it was at least 75 degrees out. So just ignore the snow on the ground and think happy thoughts: sun and blooming flowers.

Speaking of flowers, when it comes to florals this season, there is only one rule- Be Creative! Opt for a denim jacket or denim blouse and layer it over with a biker jacket or a blazer. It is the right balance of mystery and feminity. Fun and flirty. You also can’t go wrong with basic suede boots this season. They are more versatile than you think. Nude matches everything: Wear them with mini- or at-the-knee skirts, or tuck your jeans into them.
