Spring 2019 is here! This means it is time to move away from our warm, heavy winter fragrances, and into something more fresh and spring-like. . .or is it?

For the spring 2019 season, we are seeing a resurgence of the heavier fragrances from the late 1980s and early 1990s. This was the era where you left a trail of scent in your wake. As fashion tends towards this era, so does fragrance! Get ready to pair your bold hues, biker shorts, and puffy sleeves with vetiver; and be sure to leave a trail.

My signature fragrance in the early to mid-1990s was Gio de Giorgio Armani. It was a heavy vetiver scent which always left a trail. When fragrance softened up in the late 1990s, vetiver was left for men’s cologne only; even then, it was watered down. This season, perfumer’s are featuring the heavy fragrance note, and designing entire perfumes around vetiver! I think I am in love!!!

So, for the spring 2019 season, look for medium to heavy fragrances. Look for something warm, leathery, and woody. Mix those florals with something slightly masculine, and always leave a trail!

I went smelling, and found a few fabulous scents which embody different facets of the fragrance trends this spring season. There is something for everyone in my collage above! Find your ideal floral, citrus, or vetiver! I hope you love these as much as I do!

Happy Friday! I am so happy casual Friday exists! There is something about the last day of the workweek where I always feel slightly tired yet extremely happy that the weekend is almost here. This type of mood almost always calls for jeans! Of course in the fall and winter months, it always calls for a cozy sweater too! I love this sweater by Trouve. It offers a classic look with a twist! Notice the asymmetrical zipper on the side. I love how the zipper adds a subtle touch which makes an otherwise timeless sweater unusual and fresh. I can see myself living in this sweater all season long.

Do you have a favorite, cozy and casual item this fall you are looking forward to wearing throughout the season? If so, please share!

Over the weekend we took the kids to a local fundraising carnival. It was really fun to go on the Ferris Wheel and watch the kids go on so many rides and inside of the bouncy house. We were at the carnival for several hours so I was really happy to be wearing a comfortable pair of biker boots.

I love the biker boot trend this fall. Biker boots offer a small heel and an edgy style which spices up a casual outfit; yet allows a certain level of comfort. Love that! These biker boots have definitely been my fall 2013 “go-to” item. What is your “go-to” item(s) this autumn season?
