British Style and Cobalt Blue

I am loving this ad campaign by UK retailer Top Shop. Cobalt blue is one of my favorite colors. I also like the bohemian pairing with the accessories and the pattern showing under the dress.

Trend: Pastel Plaids

The hot trend of plaids continues through the spring and summer months. While fall and winter plaids were much heavier in tones of red, brown and black, the spring/summer version is much more scaled back. Light pastel colors mix together with grays and soft cottons to create breathable country girl looks. Dress available at Urban Outfitters and top by Topshop.

Summer Fabric Bags by Meleana

Designer Meleana has created these vibrant pattern fabric bags. Inspired by her time spent living in Hawaii the bags have a laid back tropical vacation appeal. They are light weight and airy - who wants to be bogged down with leather when it is 100 degrees out. They come in a variety of different prints and styles.

Trend: Snakeskin Sandals

I have spotted snakeskin sandals popping up everywhere. While animal prints have been around for a while I think snakeskin adds the same wild accent without being well so over the top (leapord print!). While the real thing - Python - will cost you a pretty penny, there are a lot of synthetic imitations that are much more affordable. Styles shown below Taryn Rose 'Gaby' Slide $475 and VANELi 'Amii' Sandal $89.95 available at Nordstrom.
