I’ve always had a soft spot for vintage styles, and as the weather warms up I’m excited to play with vintage and vintage-inspired pieces. When I wear vintage, I never want the look to come off as stuck in the past or costumey, so I take note of vintage casual wear and how I can interpret it for my day-to-day life. Audrey Hepburn and Lauren Bacall are two of my vintage style icons, and were definitely queens of the laid-back look. Think trousers, Breton tees, belted midi skirts, crisp white shirts, and ballet flats.

Soft Colors

Spring makes me want to incorporate more color into my closet, but when I work with color, I like to keeps things soft and fresh with the occasional statement piece. This season I’m loving soft blush, mint, and blue, along with classic neutrals like beige and black. The combination of soft colors with classics keeps things fresh and springy without feeling overdone.


Subtle Romance

Spring is the time to embrace all things floral, soft, and romantic. I like to bring these ideas into my outfits in more subtle ways, like pairing a feminine skirt with a more structured jacket. For my personal style, it’s all about balancing the romantic statement pieces with classic elements such as great neutral shoes, classic tees, and traditional prints. This season I’m loving floral midi skirts, vintage-inspired earrings, statement sleeves, and billowy embroidered blouses for a touch of the romantic.


Stay tuned till tomorrow to see my spring capsule wardrobe wish-list!

  1. I’m loving flowy, ruffly boho style and florals. I’m still working on my personal style and trying to fit it to my body shape. I love pouring over the wisdom of Imogen has tons of information on body type, coloring, styling, face shape, skin and clothing texture, and so much more. I just need to be able to put it all together. Spring and summer are definitely my favorite seasons for clothes.

  2. Don’t ya just LOVE Audrey Hepburn—she has such GREAT style!!!!

    I’m pretty stoked about finally being able to wear my new Made in the USA Palm Beach Sandals–the original Jackie Kennedy O sandal (that’s right, they weren’t Jack Rogers…they were by a company called Palm Beach Sandal). Jackie Kennedy has great style too–the epitome of American preppy!

    Thanks for the inspiration! Where did you buy those lipsticks…are the y available at Sephora? I’m trying to go cruelty free in make-up as well.
