As I listen to the hum of the lawnmowers outside, sneeze my head off, and dab at my watery eyes, I am reminded that ahhhh- yes- it is spring! This year, it's not only looking like springtime outside, but in our closets as well! Floral patterns are prevalent this season, first spotted on the runways of Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Peter Som and even J Crew among others. But fear not my fellow budget watchers! The prints have trickled down to the masses! The whole look is about being fun and flirty- so get creative with your flower power! Feel free to mix patterns (especially with my favorite stripes!) or make it easy and choose a floral dress- barely any accessorizing necessary! Now you can take some time to smell the flowers...without sneezing.

Although the chilly weather has crept back in for now, last week we were treated to a sneak peek of summer! On the East Coast summer means one thing: iced coffee season! When the temperatures start to hit the 60 degree mark you'll see it. Sunglasses on, windows rolled down, music blaring and lines out the door at Dunkin' Donuts. When it comes to coffee Dunkin' Donuts is king in New England, and with onset of spring weather they introduced some new caramel flavors. While that's lovely, I've been much more captivated by the commercial for said beverages. It's fabulous! Three girls show up to an event wearing the same ADORABLE dress, but are relieved to find out that although they look identical, are all drinking a different coffee flavor. Cute, no? Anyway, after the commercial starting airing lots of ladies at work began wondering where the adorable dress was from. It's a darling Nanette Lepore number that screams spring and happens to be on sale. I'll cheers my Dunkin' iced to that!
