After a couple of months of really cold weather, and much-needed rain, the weather has taken a turn! All of a sudden, during the daylight hours, it feels like spring! I have to admit, this spring-like weather pattern is bittersweet. It feels nice to have warm weather in the 60’s and low 70’s after being cold for a few weeks, but at the same time, we need rain! Our drought here in California is not over, so, hopefully this warm-up is temporary and we go back to winter! Rain please!

‘The upside to warm weather is getting to wear this super cute, casual tee I recently bought at the Gap! I hope to wear it with jeans and shorts this spring and summer. I love the boxy silhouette. I feel like it makes the tee a little less ordinary; yet still casual for everyday wear.

Have you started shopping for spring yet? What have you picked up?

Piperlime, which happens to be one of my favorite online shops, has launch their own collection this fall 2014 season; the Piperlime Collection. This beautiful collection features on-trend pieces which are wearable and can easily integrate into any Fashionista’s wardrobe. The new Piperlime Collection features both casual and work appropriate pieces which will easily become closet staples. Love that!

I had the honor of viewing the entire Piperlime Collection in person at the RewardStyle party during New York Fashion Week. The collection featured beautiful colors, textures and silhouettes. I was impressed with the quality and affordable prices of the new Piperlime Collection. I definitely saw trends from the runways integrated into the fall 2014 Piperlime Collection, which makes it easy to bring the runways into your own closet.

I love this tee style blouse from the new Piperlime Collection I am wearing in the photos above. I can easily wear this blouse with a pencil skirt for a professional look or dress it down with jeans. I also love how it looks with the pants I am wearing in the photos above. It is incredibly comfortable and will look great when layered with a jacket or sweater later on in the fall season; or even during the winter season.

The Piperlime Collection includes all the hottest trends for the fall 2014 season including florals, lace, knits and moto jackets. The color palette is also right on trend for the fall 2014 season and easy to integrate into any autumn wardrobe.

Feeling tall

I wore this outfit on my last day in New York for fashion week. I am not sure why, but I felt really tall in this outfit. Maybe it was the comfortable yet dreamlike feel of the skirt, or these incredibly comfortable Joie heeled booties. Whatever it was, wherever the vibe came from, I felt much taller than my 5’4″ frame. Love that!

As someone who is on the short side, I always revel in the moment when I feel tall. Feeling tall does not come often, so when it does, I love it! I am quite certain I will wear this outfit a lot this fall season; after all, it makes me feel tall! I am also looking forward to wearing this sweater with jeans on casual days. I would also like to find a long sleeve top to wear with this skirt for cooler days in November and December. 

Do you have an outfit or piece of clothing which makes you feel taller?
