Current Obsessions: Kate Moss x Topshop

Kate Moss' newest collaboration with Topshop launches tomorrow April 30th! Her capsule collections usually sell out fast so browse all the looks that will be for sale along with pricing information here or here if you are hoping to grab something. I have two floral pieces from her first launch and have gotten so much wear out of them. My favorites from this new collection are the beaded fringe dress, embroidered smock dress, scallop trimmed camisole and splice skirt maxi dress in white.... Everything will be available to purchase at Topshop, Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter at midnight tonight so be sure to set your alarm! There is also a fun read on Kate's style rules here if interested. XOXO

What To Wear: Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is this weekend and I've styled some looks to cover you for any activity you might be doing to celebrate the holiday! I love how all of these outfits could be worn well into summer and for other occasions too... The To Church and To Dinner looks would be great for a wedding [the lace Mason by Michelle Mason comes in red and black as well]. All of these looks are styled with jewelry from one of my favorite designers, Melanie Auld [recent review here]. An Easter basket Gift Guide coming up later this week! XOXO

This past weekend was jam packed with lots of fun activities! We went to California Adventure + Disneyland [I wore this + this with these sunglasses + shoes], lots of yummy meals out [including Mas Malo, Hyperion Public, + Gracias Madre], took a pilates class, walked around the local Farmer's Market and visited the Diane Von Furstenberg exhibit in LA [which I highly recommend if you're in the area]. Trying to play catch up this week on errands and relaxation. Hope you had a great weekend!

Review: Melanie Auld Spring 2014

Packages from the sweet Melanie Auld always make my day but I think this one might be the most amazing one I've received thus far! Her spring 2014 collection is to die for in person... I've been lusting over all the preview pics she's posted on her Instagram over the last few months but I must say they are even better in real life [which I didn't think was possible]. Check out the full spring collection here and be sure to take a peek at the sale she is hosting here [up to 50% plus use EXTRA15 to receive an additional 15% off your sale purchase]. What piece from her new collection is your favorite? XOXO

What To Wear: Spring Break Vacation

While most of us no longer get an official spring break vacation that hasn't stopped me from dreaming about one! I'm loving the beautiful cover ups that Miguelina has to offer and wouldn't mind these amazing sandals [serious lust list item]. So far I have a girl's trip to Vegas in June and family plans to go to Maui in August and Santa Barbara for Labor Day so I'm shopping ahead and trying to get a few things during the great spring sales... my first steal was the Mara Hoffman bikini pictured above which was an additional 30% off the sale price at Madewell, fingers crossed it works [swimwear is such a hit or miss]! Any fun vacations planned this spring or summer?

P.S. Love Givenchy, Balenciaga and YSL? Check out the reduced prices in my handbag sale here and email me at nicole.guidetostyle@gmail.com if interested. XOXO
