Luxe Life vs. Real Life: Brush Stroke Print

One of my favorite things about spring and summer fashion is the prints. I’m a print girl — the bigger the bolder the better. So one of my favorite collections for the warm weather season came from none other than Celine. Those classic silhouettes, the mix of neutral and bright colors and sophisticated prints with a touch of whimsy.

Their brush stroke print appeared on a some body-hugging tanks, a couple of t-shirt dresses and a show-stopping yellow and blue shawl collar jacket — and I absolutely love it. It evokes a pop art vibe without being too kitschy.

While making the rounds virtually to my favorite online shops this weekend, I found this Printed Top over at Zara.com. The print is nearly identical to Celine’s, but at $70 you won’t have to toss a coin on whether you’ll pay a bill this month or go shopping.. The top is cropped, which makes it perfect for pairing with a high-waisted pencil skirt or trouser pants.

Fab Finds Under $100: Statement Bracelet

When it comes to my personal style, I tend to keep things simple with classic pieces (think: blouson tops, menswear-inspired trouser pants, full midi skirts). But my go-to for adding some wow factor is bold jewelry. I love a great statement necklace, a chunky cocktail ring, an over-sized stud earrings . . . basically, more is always better for me and accessories.

This Rippling Bracelet from Anthropologie is a-ma-zing and looks far more expensive than the $29.95 price tag. You could wear it with a basic tee, a gold tone chain link necklace, skinny jeans and a fly pair of heeled sandals for a serious dose of weekend chic.
