friday favorites: wishful spring thinking by Krystal Bick March 16, 2018 Ouch. That’s literally what I just said. Out loud. To myself. And well, Elvis, since he’s the only other person in the room. Why? Well I just looked at next week’s weather report for New York. Brace yourselves… SNOW. Next week. Tuesday through Thursday to be exact. Starting on what is supposedly the first day of Spring, March 20th. If the irony there doesn’t kill you, then your winter-weary spirit is stronger than mine, and I tip my proverbial cap to you. But perhaps you’re like me, hibernating indoors, playing spring dress up in all the “not-yet-mine-but-soon-to-be-mine-once-I-file-my-taxes-outfits.” If you’re in the latter camp, then today’s post is for you. Kevin Costner once told us if you build it, they will come. Well, I like to think, if we dress for spring, it has to come. Eventually. Right? Thankfully, Shopbop was on the same page this week, as they kicked off their #StyleHigh lounge on all the right spring style notes: pastels, adorable kitschy bags, retro sunglasses and all the satin mules a girl could ask for. You might have spied a few snaps on Instagram from earlier this week, but I wanted to share more of my spring favorites from their whole lineup — as they literally let us try on ANYTHING we wanted in their closet. I mean, anything. I immediately was drawn to this red Saloni polka dot dress, because, well, I have a serious polka dot problem. It hasn’t made it’s way into my cart, just yet, as I’m also really drawn to this Sandy Liang dress. And this Veronica Beard dress. Oh, and this Cult Gaia bag. Maybe this Self Portrait dress too, for good measure. Yikes…you get the picture. Keep scrolling for more spring inspiration — and fingers crossed for warmer temps soon! My lovely friend Karen in the most stunning Self Portrait gown. // These yellow Tabitha Simmons pumps are making me even more crazy for this happy hue! OUTFIT DETAILS: Saloni dress // Paul Andrew heels // Cult Gaia bag // Illesteva sunglasses SaloniIsa ruffle dressOK, serious question: is there such a thing as having too many polka dot dresses? Because if there isn't (and even if there is), I think I need this red Saloni number. After all, I don't have any red polka dot dresses. Yet. And this would be so perfect for a few upcoming summer trips!Shop Now Cult GaiaAcrylic Lillith clutchLast summer, I used to my Cult Gaia Arc bag to DEATH. This summer, I'm thinking this chic, acrylic cousin will fit the bill just fine. A lot of you asked how I prevent my things from falling out of these bags and I simply just add a shoe dust bag inside! You could always add one in a contrasting color for a fun pop!Shop Now I would not be upset if these Mother of Pearl mules showed up at my door anytime soon. My girls Olivia and Cait looking adorable AF, per usual. Sandy LiangLulu dressWhen I first arrived at the Shopbop event, I grabbed the red Saloni dress you see me in here. But my second choice? Hands down was this baby blue, Sandy Liang frock. Granted, I'm not much of a baby blue person myself, but something about this number has me whistling a different tune. I love how bad ass fairy tale it feels.Shop Now TibiJase mulesYou guys know I have these pups in white leather. But a satin sky blue? Oh! Dreamy! If there's a trend I noticed, it's that quirky color combinations are going to be BIG for spring. These shoes would be darling with an emerald green or hot pink dress.Shop Now Seriously, these two beauties can do no wrong. Natalie and Dylana killing the game. Veronica BeardSamara dressI'm a sucker for midi dresses and especially midi dresses with a certain 1940s flair -- think ruffled sleeves, cinched waist, a deep V. And now that my hair is shorter, I love being able to just throw on a number like this Veronica Beard dress with some statement earrings and I'm good to head out the door!Shop Now Self PortaitChiffon pussy bow dressWell, they say it ain't easy being green. But I beg to differ. Especially if you're wearing this kelly green Self Portrait dress. The pussy bow! The sheer details! The high neck! And yep, the midi length! My name is all over this dress. Perfect for daytime and evening events.Shop Now Here’s a complete row of babes! How adorable is Kristen in this striped Ganni sweater? // Helena looking like a boss in this yellow Ganni coat. // Charlotte is all smiles in this floral number. GanniJulliard mohair sweaterI have to say, this striped sweater was the HIT of the day. And I think it's largely due to how cute Kristen from Shopbop looked in it. It pairs so well with denim AND patterned skirts.Shop Now StylekeepersSpotlight setWhat? Did you think I wouldn't add anymore polka dot to this lineup? Well, you thought wrong. Again, this skirt was also a hit, probably because Kristen is just too adorable in everything she puts on. I love the idea of a polka dot skirt serving as a 'neutral' to the outfit -- perfect with any pop of color or pattern you pair it with!Shop Now This post isn’t sponsored by Shopbop — the event was just too cute not to share! As always, all opinions and thoughts are my own.
