Style Sessions Link Up: Spring Fashion – Brights and Stripes


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! Today I’m sharing some of my favorite spring fashion – brights and stripes. I refuse to call them ‘trends’, as I firmly believe stripes and bright fuchsia are so much more – they’re a style staple! I adore this Diane von Furstenberg Illene Crepe Blazer (you’ve seen it before here) and love mixing it with a stripe pencil skirt. I’ve also been carrying my gorgeous new Italian leather Maxwell Scott ‘Barella’ handbag everywhere the past few weeks, it makes any outfit look chic and polished! I’m really particular when it comes to handbags, style with functionality and the best quality materials are so important. I want my handbags to last and be able to enjoy them day-in day-out, season after season, year after year. I’m obsessed with the quality of Maxwell Scott and the service is exceptional, their pieces are so well made and you can just tell that instantly (I’ve actually been stopped on the street around six times already about where I got my handbag!).

To finish the outfit, my favorite Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses and Michael Kors black patent heels are perfect (they are a must-have and beyond comfortable, plus under $100 so you can’t go wrong!). As mentioned yesterday, things got a little crazy in the Nordstrom shoe department recently… isn’t it so easy to do! You go in for one thing and before you know it, you’re five pairs deep and trying to decide on a sixth!

I’d love to know, what’s your go-to color this Spring / Summer and do you have a favorite print (eg. stripes, florals)?

Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m delighted to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Oby from Only Be You. Not only does she have fabulous style, Oby is so charismatic and loves life… If you’re looking for some uplifting inspiration, I head over to her fab blog!

STYLE Q&A WITH OBY…

How would you describe your style?  A mixture of  Kelly Kapowski from Saved by the Bell obsession with crop tops and Ariana Grande obsession with skater skirts and Skater dresses. I love pairing a great crop top with a cute skater skirt.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I am currently loving tulle skirts, purple lipsticks and bright colored pumps!

What inspired you to start your blog?  I started blogging as a creative outlet because of my stressful school schedule. I love capturing how people tell their stories with the way they dress.

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: M.A.C Blitz and Glitz FluidlineNeutrogena Hydrating Towelettes and M.A.C Ricepaper Eye Shadow.

What is your best beauty trick?  I deep condition my hair every week to keep it healthy. It also helps keep it softer and longer.

Tell us something not many people know about you?  I love to travel and explore new places. I would love to do the around the world in 80 days trip!
