Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / Kendra Scott necklace (old, also love this one) / YSL lipstick / navy sparkle tee (love how it sparkles!!!) / denim shirt c/o Bridge & Boro (worn at NYFW here) / Mansur Gavriel bucket bag / floral iPhone case / Kendra Scott ring / Chanel spring nail polish / watch c/o Daniel Wellington / cuff c/o Daniel Wellington / leggings c/o Thacker NYC (worn at NYFW here) / Adidas sneakers in rose gold (some retailers call it copper) (love!!!)

The athelisure trend for spring 2017 is in full swing! With warmer temperatures and busy spring days, athleisure is the easy and comfortable way to get through the day. Love this trend for spring!

Since athleisure is about as close to walking around town in workout clothes as I am going to get, I tried to glam up my casual daytime look. If you are wondering how to wear the athleisure trend for spring 2017, it is actually quite easy! All you need is one pair of comfy leggings or sweatpants, a fabulous pair of Adidas sneakers, a cute yet casual tee, and of course your go-to Mansur Gavriel bucket bag. Voila! Athleisure for spring 2017!

This sparkle tee in navy with rose gold threading is a full on game changer. It is a casual, basic tee by nature, yet elevated because it sparkles. I have to admit, I also bought it in beige with yellow golden threads. It is perfect for making everyday jeans and a tee into a glamorous ensemble. I love how it makes these leggings and a tee outfit something special.

Athleisure for spring would not be as cool as it is without a pair of Adidas sneakers! Back in the 1990s I owned a pair with navy stripes, and before that, I had the old school, green striped version. For spring 2017, I decided to glam things up and I bought them with the rose gold stripes. I love the rose gold!!! If you are looking for a pair of street sneakers with an IT factor, these are the sneakers for you! They come in different colors too, so there is something for everyone. You can find them online here.

Ever since fashion week, I have been living in this denim shirt and these comfy leggings. Isn’t it fun to mix up clothing from your closet and make them glam one day, and casual the next? Love that!

So the ultimate casual look this spring is the athleisure trend. If you are looking for a way to be fashionable and fabulous, without breaking your ankles in platform heels, then the athleisure trend for spring 2017 is for you! I know I am living in it this season, and this outfit is my absolute favorite!

One last thing, my cute little ten-year-old daughter took these photos, are they great! She is so talented!

So what do you think of the athleisure trend for spring 2017? Will you be rocking it this warm weather season?

Thanks for stopping by!

Wearing: tassel earrings in ivory / YSL lipstick / spring 2017 dress c/o Karina (Made in the USA!!) / Shore Projects watch (blue sold out, also love this one) / Kendra Scott ring / Mansur Gavriel Tote / LondonTown Dolly Mix nail polish (9-free) c/o / Valentino Tango pumps

Karina’s spring 2017 collection is here! I am so excited. You may remember the last time I wore a Karina dress, online here. I love that dress, and will still be able to wear it this spring. BUT, isn’t it nice to have something from the brand new season!!

This classic, feminine, and perfect dress by Karina for spring is exactly what my closet needed. My former LBD (Little Black Dress) wore out, so I was hoping to find a new one for spring 2017. I was thrilled when Karina offered me a dress from their new spring collection. Although not a true LBD, this dress fits perfectly into the LBD mold. It will be my go-to for all my last minute occasions, as well as planned events! Love!

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our winter weather has just started to change. We normally start to have spring days in February. So, this past weekend, when there was a break in the rain, the 60-degree weather we had Sunday morning felt like spring! I was lucky enough to be able to wear this dress in the morning before heading home to watch the Super Bowl. I lucked out because that afternoon the temperature dropped, and the rain started! Whew!

It was fun to wear a spring outfit-at least for a couple of hours over the weekend. This dress is so comfortable, and it is great quality. I know I will get a lot of wear out of it this upcoming spring season.

Karina has a fabulous collection of spring dresses in addition to this one. Definitely check out the whole line! You will fall in love; just like I did! Plus, who doesn’t love something made in the USA!!! Love that!

Kendra Scott spring 2017 collection launch party

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / YSL lipstick / Gap long sleeve tee / coat c/o Thacker NYC (stay tuned-wearing this at NYFW!) / Gap jeans / Mansur Gavriel bag / YSL nail polish / Gucci shoes

Last week, I was thrilled to attend Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection launch party at her Santana Row shop. In addition to launching her new spring collection, Kendra Scott also donated 20% of her proceeds from the event to local charity YWCA Silicon Valley. Love!

The event was really fun, and I had a chance to hang out with two other local bloggers who are super fun to chat with; Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun, and Cheryl from Oh To Be A Muse. They both have fabulous style, be sure you are following them too!

Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection included pieces which will be easy to wear with the spring 2017 color palette. There is turquoise, blue, rose gold, crackle brown pearl, and ivory pearl set in antique silver. The collection is so amazing! This is my favorite piece from the collection.

This necklace is definitely on my spring wish list! I also have my eyes on this beautiful cuff. Not sure which color I want! They are all so pretty! Here are a few of my favorites from Kendra Scott’s spring collection:

While I was at the party, I did indulge in purchasing two rings from the spring collection. I knew I needed rings to wear right now, so they are perfect for winter into spring transition style. I purchased this ring in crackle brown pearl and crackle blue agate.

Of course, sometimes you picture the perfect piece and it does not exist! Well, I did get a chance to play around at the event on the Color Bar. The Color Bar is fabulous because you can pick the design, the metal color, and the stone color yourself. They will create your design right there in front of your eyes, and you get to take it home with you that day! I designed the Alex earrings in silver and blue. They are so pretty! You can learn more about the Color Bar online here.

Since the weather has been cool yet sunny, I was able to wear this beautiful suede coat by Thacker NYC to the event. The coat is actually part of an outfit I have planned for NYFW, but it is so beautiful, and versatile, I felt compelled to wear it early. This coat is a great capsule wardrobe piece. It can be worn during fall, winter, and spring. The coat can be worn dressy or casual. I am going to have fun showing you different ways to wear this coat; so stay tuned!

You can learn more about Thacker NYC online here. If you are looking for the perfect jewelry pieces to wear now into spring, the Kendra Scott spring 2017 collection will have what you are looking for! Be sure to check out Kendra Scott’s spring 2017 collection online here.
