Natural Beauty

Good grief, it is beautiful outside! I'm very stoked, because I am *loving* the ethereal beauty of the current Spring trends! Natural fibers are everywhere - wood grains, tweeds, metals, linens & suedes. I've been dreaming of maxi length skirts, sheer & gauzy layered materials, and straw sunhats - all perfectly paired with platforms & wedges.

Enter shoe crush #1: These new platform wedges, handmade in Spain by Wonders (H-9606, $195). Beautiful natural wood grain, braided tweed trim, golden brown suede, and draping ruffles down the front. Effortlessly chic, begging to be worn with florals & sheer, drapey materials.

Meet shoe crush #2: This espadrille platform wedge by Seychelles (Memories of You, $90). Woven natural wedge, with tan linen upper. Would be *incredible* paired with this season's "it" colors - mint green or coral, anyone?

And then there is jewelry.... Check out these fresh new pieces from Foxy. Flowers, feathers & leaves, in an array of gold, sterling & bronze. Coral stones add a pop of color. Layers of chains, with a mix of contrasting metals. Swoon!
