So I have to admit, shoes with wooden bottoms are not my favorite. Somehow I always manage to kick myself in the ankle. But I have seen a bunch of cute clogs. Here are a few for inspiration.

I am headed to Jazz Fest in New Orleans on Thursday and wanted to share this New Orleans inspired post for my trip. New Orleans is the perfect city to wear a bit of lace and old fashioned jewelry. But walking around all day you need a good pair (and of course stylish shoes). And last but not least some cut-offs and a rock and roll style bag with fringe and a long strap that won't get in the way when you are dancing in the streets.

I was reading Martha Stewart magazine this weekend and there was an article about Trina Turk. I was immediately attracted to bold colors and graphic patterns of her designs.

After many months of dark colors since the spring has sprung I am totally infatuated with the color white. White jeans, the perfect white t-shirt, and dressy white sandals are all on my shopping list this month.

My favorite thing to accessorize with right now is a light weight gauzy scarf. It adds just a bit of coziness on a chilly spring morning and looks chic throughout the day. For inspiration I thought I would share these images by Madewell 1937. I think they did a good job pairing scarves with these spring time looks.

As the weather gets nicer (almost 70 here in NYC today) my thoughts turn to the beach. And what I need this summer is a kick-ass bathing suit. What I look for in a bathing suit; #1 it has to be flattering, #2 not too skimpy, #3 I have to be able to be active in it paddle tennis, swimming, volleyball etc. I recently came across the Volcom swimsuits from their new summer line. Here are two of my favorites from the collection. I really like this black one-piece. Sometimes one pieces can be too conservative especially in the back, covering up too much area. This one-piece by Volcom though has a really adorable back with criss-cross straps and just the right amount of coverage in the front as well. And I really like the geometric interest of the two different strips on this two-piece. Although you can also get a matching small striped bottom if you prefer. Check out the collection on Volcom for more styles.
