Blame it on the recent cold weather or the oodles of new Spring pieces coming out, but we are more than ready for some flowers and sunshine. Our latest Outfit of The Week reflects just that! If you are wondering how you can look ready for Spring with such gloom outside, the secret is simple; by bringing in loads of bright hues and floral prints, you can be fashion-ready for a seasonal change. You can toss on a stylish coat or a pair of stockings and totally make this look work. We started off with Stella McCartney's twill midi skirt that is perfect for the office or special events. Crafted with touches of lustrous silk, this A-line style is embroidered with feminine, colorful blooms. Accompanying our pretty skirt is Alice + Olivia's eye-catching 'Klynn' top. It is cut from smooth crepe that is darted for a streamlined shape, revealing the most flattering part of your waist. To bring out the additional pops of color in our outfit, we chose a red suede and brass 'Cara' clutch from Jimmy Choo, featuring a knot detail and a gold-tone logo plaque. Keeping the mood on the sunny side, sunglasses were a must. These Stella McCartney cat-eye shades are the perfect touch of chic. Rounding out our ensemble with a little beauty, we chose a classic red lipstick by Estee Lauder. If the snow and clouds are bringing you down, enter our 'Secret Garden' and take in a fresh breath of Spring.
