My Closet + Spring Cleaning Tips
West Village, NYC

Ahhh Spring!  A time of rebirth and renewal!  It’s a time to clean out those closets and make room for new energy and new pieces that will give you that extra pep in your step.  I’m getting nostalgic looking back at these pictures of my old closet.  This closet was a special place – it was where a lot of brainstorming and some serious outfit planning went down.  Before I moved, I got rid of a ton of pieces!  A few of  you have been asking me to do a closet sale since I’m cleaning out my wardrobe again – and it’s something I will definitely consider. ;)  If you haven’t already read the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up I highly recommend you doing so.  It’s all about decluttering your space to help make room for inspiration and creativity.  For closet storage – I love these Ikea bookshelves and this rolling rack.  You can’t go wrong with fun wicker baskets for scarves, bathing suits, and belts.  Keep old shoe boxes and use them as storage for odds + ends.  Toss plastic hangers and order these velvet non slip ones.  Organize your clothes by season and buy under the bed storage bins or consider renting a small storage unit if necessary (I used Box Butler in NYC and had a great experience – and no this isn’t sponsored!)  Donate or consign anything you haven’t worn in a year (I loved Second Time Around consignment store.)  And finally the wardrobe mantra I live by; invest in classic pieces you’ll have for years to come!  Less is more – quality over quantity.

10 Spring Dress Ideas

By the time March rolls around, I’m ready to ditch all of my heavy winter coats, thick sweaters and boots, and swap them out for light sundresses and sandals.  I love pairing shirt dresses with military jackets, tank dresses with draped trenches, and florals with leather.  Here are a few of my favorite spring outfit combos.  If you don’t already own these jackets – I suggest investing in them as they are staples in my closet!  A military jacket (I love this one and this one), a leather jacket (I love this black one and this tan one), a draped trench (I love this neutral one and this white one) and a white silk blazer (I live in this one!)  In terms of dresses – you can’t go wrong with a black shirtdress, a white shirtdress (this one is a steal!), a white lace dress, a simple black tank dress, and a super flattering day to night midi dress.  For sandals – if you’ve seen my shoe collection you know 99.9% of my shoes are classic and neutral…and I wear each and everyone one to death.  Simplicity is key – anything too clunky doesn’t elongate your legs and throws off proportions.  I love Stuart Weitzman’s leather ankle strap sandals and Aquazzura’s suede lace ups.  Head to my Shop by Season section for even more spring outfit inspo!

Shopbop Sale

TGIF!  I’ve been slowly but surely unpacking from Mexico.  My closet is currently bursting at the seams so I need to do a little spring cleaning this weekend.  Especially because the new pieces I scored on sale at Shopbop just came!  I’m obsessed with this green drapey trench for spring, this white vest to layer over dresses or tanks, and this light leather jacket.  This dress is ideal for everyday, and this dress would be gorgeous for date night.  The Shopbop sale is going on for 1 more day only so be sure to take advantage!  Take 15% off orders of $200+, 20% off orders of $500+, and 25% off orders of $800+.  Shop my must have picks below (including this swimsuit, this pom pom tote, these suede lace up sandals and these sunnies.)

Le Boudoir
Venice Beach, CA

I live in neutrals so a neutral bra that matches my skin tone – and doesn’t show through my clothes is 100% necessary!  When the new, up and coming bra company ThirdLove, reached out to me about their New Nakeds Collection (which they spent two years developing!), I was excited to test them out.  The collection includes five shades of neutrals (the one that matched my skin tone was Naked 2 but I also loved Naked 5 – such a pretty color.)  What impresses me the most about Third Love is that you can try out their bras, to find the perfect fit and shade that complements your skin tone, for free for 30 days!  For a limited time, head here to try the New Nakeds completely free of charge for an entire month.  If you hate bra shopping in stores as much as I do – and just want a simple, well made, quality bra then this is the company for you!  Shop more of my favorite styles from Third Love below (how pretty is this black lace style?!)
