H&M recently announced that their next designer collaboration is with Marni, the Italian label designed by Consuelo Castiglioni. The brand was launched in 1994 and is known for its joyful and artsy styles. Marni combines vivid colors, graphic patterns, texture and many furs that stem from Castiglioni’s husband’s family fur business. The result? A funky, yet elegant clothes that are totally wearable!

Trend to Try: Neon & Gray

On the runways at New York Fashion Week, Diane Von Furstenberg paired bright neons with gray. This look is effortlessly cool and allows you to experiment with color.

Try pairing this neon beaded top from Sass and Bide with a pair of gray jeans!

These neon accessories would dress up any neutral ensemble. If you're aiming for a bold look, try pairing with other neons!

Small Neon Details can also add interesting elements to your outfit! Heels below from Alexander Wang.

Life's Natural Highs

I love this list of life's natural highs.

Although there are a couple of things I would add to my list:
- Completing your "to do" list...then spending the evening doing nothing on the couch!
- Watching home movies
- Finishing a great book
- Catching up with an old friend and realizing that nothing's changed
- The aroma of a freshly brewed pot of coffee
- Witnessing acts of kindness from a stranger
- Accomplishing a goal or dream
- Family :)

What would you add to your list of Life's Natural Highs?

Pink & White Perfection

Lately, I've been coveting pink and white pairings. Check out these looks below for some inspiring ways to wear these feminine colors!

Jason Wu at New York Fashion Week 2011.

A white dress with bright accessories is always chic. Ashley adds a pop of color with her pink pumps.

A crisp, white blouse is perfection with these pink shorts. Not to mention, the fun scalloped details!

I love the bow detail on the back of this skirt. Again a simple blouse can be paired with any bright hue!

Obsessed with this pink blazer. Darling over this white dress!

Pink Pants. So fun.

Pink accessories add character to neutral ensembles.

Pink Lips? Pucker Up!

Ombre Obsessed.

Ombre is a french term that means shaded or shading. Quite simply, it is a graduation of color from dark to light or vice versa. I am loving this trend which has transcended across the fashion and beauty industries. Check out the looks below for ideas on how to chicly shade the colors in your own wardrobe!

Ombre is a popular trend for your tresses as well! This style is especially gorgeous on burnettes, like the lovely ladies below!

Timeless Trend: Polka Dots.

Polka Dots are a timeless trend. They are an important part of our fashion history, yet still remain relevant on the runways today. Take a look at this inspiring trend that can be a part of your closet, beauty routine and home!

Polka Dotted Styles at Stella McCartney.

The patterned print at Diane Von Furstenberg.

If you cannot decide on one polka-dotted pattern... mix them! Just make sure you don't wear prints that are the same scale. Try larger polka dots on one piece with smaller prints on another. Another great way to wear this trend, is to pair classic black and white polka dots with bright colors that add some pop!

Polka Dots are especially adorable on men's bowties!

You can even incorporate polka dots into your beauty routine. Check out these adorable nail styles below!

Love polka dotted prints? Trying bringing this trend into your home as well!

Polka Dotted patterns have never been so fun and of the moment! Enjoy!
