Spring Closet!

I distinctly felt a bit of spring in the air yesterday and realized it was time to shed—shed my closet of all the dark, heavy woolen layers I've been wearing all winter, and also to shed a few pounds.
It's also time to Assess Dejunk & Renew my SPRING CLOSET—see what fits, dejunk what doesn't, & assess what I need to wear for my life.
I know I'll need something to wear to a late spring wedding weekend, and for speaking engagements around the country. I've also worn out my white jeans, so that's on my SHOP SMART list.
I'll also want to refresh my CLOSET CLASSICS with a few spring trends, which were fantastics this year.
BOLD BLOCKS of COLOR I'm always in the mood for color this time of year. A colorful dress and bag would energize my spring wardrobe. I also just picked up a chartreuse linen jacket by Akris to wear at the events I spoke at in Palm Beach.
ALL WHITE I think it's the chicest most elegant look for summer. A white pantsuit with the new WIDE LEG PANT is on my list. And with the wide leg pant, an ELEVATED PLATFORM SHOE, so its high, but essentially comfortably flat.
The one color accent that is prominent is CORAL, which has always been a summer classic. It doesn't flatter my face, so I'll pick up some fab, faux jewelry in coral.
FLOWERS—the quintessential summer print. It's a happy print, and I am in the mood for happy. Perhaps that will be the dress I wear to the wedding.
ANIMAL PRINTS are always in as far as I'm concerned, but you'll also see a lot of it in the stores. I just picked up a pair of Stuart Weitzman beige python pumps—I've decided a nude leg and nude shoe looks best with everything. It elongates the leg and makes your feet disappear.
I am particularly EXCITED about the sheer fabrics popular this spring. They're perfect for us women who no longer want to bare it all—arms, decollete...Wear a sheer top w/ a cami underneath. The peek-a-boo effect is discreet, without looking bundled up. Besides it's sexy. A few of these tops are a must on my SHOP SMART list.
THE CROSS OVER BAG is adorable and especially great if you're traveling. It's a fashionable way to keep your valuable close at hand.
And the best part of the change in season is to rediscover all my CLOSET FAVORITES FROM LAST YEAR! I'll keep you posted!
