things I love

With spring right around the corner, I have put together a list of my favorite things for March. Naturally, everything is very colorful and bold. Enjoy!

It was love at first sight for me when I came across this clutch. The Loeffler Randall pompom embellished leather pouch is the perfect accessory to kick off spring in a colorful and fun way!

I have been a huge fan of M.Gemi since I discovered the brand last year. Their shoes are very high quality, with an affordable price point. As a lover of pointy flats, the Corto shoes are definitely my favorite this season (and they are so comfortable!).

Oh Mara Hoffman, how I love you. This one shoulder midi dress in bold stripes is one of my favorite pieces she has designed (and I am obsessed with most of her designs). Toss on a pair of statement earrings and you are ready to go

How could I not make a list with my favorite accessories for March without including my favorite earrings I have ever designed, the Azza Earrings in tortoise. They are available for pre-order!

Leave it to J.Crew to make the perfect colorful clutch for spring. The medium pouch in stripe is definitely a must have.

I recently added vitamin-c serum to my beauty routine and am so pleased with the anti-aging results. I have tried a bunch of serums and Drunk Elephant C-firma day serum is one of my favorites. Plus the packaging is fab.
