Five Fun Ways to Decorate Your Easter Table


A Centerpiece with a Grown-Up Easter Basket

I love to incorporate baskets into my Easter decor. It's an Easter essential after all. Get one that is a bit more sophisticated than a grocery-store basket, and fill it with beautiful decorative eggs or yummy adult-worthy chocolate bunnies from Godiva or Lindt. / Shop It > Pier 1 Natural Bunny Basket

10 Things Every Modern Woman Can Learn from Cinderella


Fairy tales don't always go over well with the modern-day woman. We don't necessarily like the idea of a man riding in on a white horse to save the day. Though I've never really seen Cinderella as much of a damsel in distress, and perhaps that is why she was always my favorite of the Disney princesses - above anything else I always saw her as a kind person who worked hard and got what she deserved in the end. Isn't that something we all want? To know that our hard work and all of our struggles will one day pay off? When I saw the new live-action remake of the classic fairy tale, I was reminded of all the reasons why I love this story and why I idolized Cinderella so much when I was a child. Damsel in distress or not, there are quite a few lessons to be learned from this Disney princess. / All images courtesy of Disney.

Ladylike Neutrals for Spring


 
Most people think florals when they think of spring fashion, but I tend to think of soft neutrals in white, light tan, and a pale blush pink. A simple white lace top is one of my spring wardrobe staples, as it can go with both casual denim or tucked into a nice skirt or dress slacks. The lace pencil skirt and dress below are also very versatile for spring. You can dress them down, or dress them up just a bit for brunch, and you can even dress them up for a spring wedding. I love to pair these ladylike neutrals with gorgeous crystal and pearl accessories. Add some simple metallic jewelry or a chic envelope clutch to keep the look modern.

Trending: Mule Pumps for Spring / Summer 2015



There are quite a few different women's shoe trends for Spring 2015, one of my favorites being the slide or mule pump. Traditional mule pumps were popular in 2014, and this year, the trend is hot in both closed-toe pumps and open-toe high heel sandals. And while last year, the mule pumps were mostly seen with either chunky high heels or slim kitten heels, this season it's seen with both chunky and high stiletto heels. Many high-end brands like Stuart Weitzman, Kate Spade, and Giuseppe Zanotti are in on the trend for 2015, as well as more affordable shoe brands like Nine West for under $100. While the chunky sandals are growing on me, these more classic pointed-toe mule pumps are my favorite. Pictured above: Kookie Buhain of Death by Platforms
