In the Nude

Since it's Fashion Week, I thought I would take a look at the fall 2010 highlights to see if any trends are making an early debut in stores this spring/summer.  It looks like neutral tones are in stock and will continue to make a statement through the fall.  Here are some of my favorites that are currently available. 

J.Crew Lilac Shower Shift Dress- $69.50

Banana Republic Crinkled Belted Sheath Dress- $98

Tory Burch 'Liv' Caged Leather Sandal- $325  Natural colored shoes create the illusion of longer legs.

Nine West 'Rocha'- $79.99

Find this versatile top in Hadley Emerson next month!

Update on Hadley Emerson

I have to admit that some of my delinquency in blogging is due to the fact that I have been working hard getting Hadley Emerson ready to open on March 1st!  Things are really starting to come together.  I have received requests to post some updated photos.  Below are a few photos from two weeks ago.  After a very productive weekend with the help of my father the woodworker and mother the painter (of course, not to leave out other laborers - my sister and husband), I now have moulding and distressed display tables that aren't shown in these pics.  Later this week I will add more photos to show those updates.

Maximizing Utility

If you are getting ready to ditch those heavy winter coats and throw on something lighter for spring, utility jackets are the coats for the upcoming season. They are timeless and the neutral colors pair with almost anything which makes them a great piece to add to any wardrobe. I recommend wearing one with jeans and a tee or over a simple dress. A more feminine option would be to try a utility dress, which looks great paired with a leather belt. Here are some picks to keep you stylish as we launch into spring.

Ann Taylor Loft Casual Anorak-  $69.50

Gap Utility Shirt Dress- $54.50

Free People Brass Revival Cargo Jacket- $138 (check out shopbop for more sizes!)

Banana Republic Boyfriend Military Jacket- $98

American Eagle Moto Jacket- $59.50


 Guess Dress- $89

Old Navy Sateen Camp Shirtdress-  $29.50
