Noël here!  I don't know about all of you but I'm dying for the spring to hurry up and get here already!  I know we still have a few months to go but c'mon- a snowstorm once a week!? You know it's bad when you're happy it's raining! Everything about winter is making me a bit gloomy, but all we can do is day dream about the warm weather. Right?  I’ll try to drag us both out of the post-holiday doldrums with some spring fashion trends, which was the inspiration behind this week's killer picks.  Check 'em out!

 1. DYING over white leather back packs. The one pictured is by J.ESTINA and called "The Manhattan Backpack." Similar versions can be found on ASOS for as low as $40 bucks!

2. Team Essie. (OPI never stays on my nails.) The nail brand has announced their annual 4-polish, Spring Resort collection.  The colors are shown above and have imaginative names like "cocktails and coconuts" for the nude, "resort fling" for the peach, "find me an oasis" for pale blue, and "under the twilight" for the navy-ish purple. Next time you're deliberating over color options- keep these in mind!

3. Our good friend Ronnie Fieg, is a NY based sneaker designer that collaborates with bigger brands like New Balance and Puma.  Together they come up with original designs. The NB's pictured above are called the 'Daytona' 1600. Inspired by Ronnie's childhood trips to Daytona Beach, Florida, the collaborative 1600 runner features a combination of tan luggage leather, brushed white nubuck and oily pigskin suede, all finished off with pink and navy accents. (I personally LOVE these!) Ronnie and his KITH Team have mastered the art of the exclusive release so finding this shoe may not be so easy.  I highly recommend checking out their store locations in Manhattan 644 Broadway (at Bleecker St.) or 233 Flatbush Ave in BK. 

I'd love to hear your feedback! Talk to me about what you'd like to see in future posts!

Thanks for reading - Noël
