The weather outside is somewhere between beautiful and amazing! Proving that springtime is one of the perks about living in this great state of ours. Of course, for me, this great weather means time to breakout the credit card and head to my favorite shops for new Spring pieces!
Thanks to Jamie Krell’s Favorite Things presentation at Neiman Marcus at Scottsdale Fashion Square a couple of weekends ago, I have a list full of must-haves for this season. You may have seen Jamie, a style and beauty expert, on shows like E! News, The TODAY Show, The View, and EXTRA. Having been on set with the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Barbra Walters, and Mario Lopez, it was a pleasure to have Jamie all to ourselves for the intimate gathering of fashion lovers.
Agency Arizona models showcased outfits styled in offerings from the Neiman Marcus CUSP department. Jamie, along with the CUSP manager Aimee, explained just how and why the looks worked while pointing out major trends for the season. The setting allowed for attendees to ask questions about fit and color—an added bonus indeed!
Some of my favorite things among Jamie’s Favorite Things:
As I am a huge fan of jackets, I was excited to see that many of Jamie’s picks included an outer layer.
This Helmut Lang floral-printed jacket can take a white top and skinnies from casual to glam… The statement necklace helps too. Jamie also pointed out that “cool blues” are on trend for spring.
This matching top and pant set by Haute Hippie is just fabulous. It is perfect for having drinks by the pool with your girls or a romantic evening with the beau. Oh, and don’t let the long sleeve and pant combo trick you, the material is marvelously lightweight. Plus, you can mix up the camis and bustiers under the sheer top depending on your mood: leather, cotton, silk, the options are endless.
Jamie’s knack for mixing seemingly classic and staple pieces like this white peplum with bold trends like printed pants is impeccable. And her ability to mix patterns and fabrics is even greater… floral, stripes, leather, lace… Seriously, just look at her outfit.
If you didn’t get a chance to catch this great event look for Jamie on all of your favorite shows and networks (believe me you are bound to catch her) and check out her website and blog at jamiekrell.com.
