I always love the transition from winter to spring. It is a slow, but fun time and the color schemes become softer and more feminine preparing for better weather conditions. I especially love the grey/ red and navy blue/ beige color combinations, and flower patterns. The combinations parallel the upcoming blossoming season, making you forget about the turbulent weather of the winter and move forward to a brighter season.

Having said that, I would love to showcase examples of these fashion color schemes I mentioned. Most of you gals will probably have a cute red skirt or a classic red dress to go with these glitzy pumps from Bebe. Fun-loving and daring, this pair of grey Kimmy Jeweled Pumps is bedazzled with crystal studs that will keep the sass in each strut. The color grey will go with any spring colors: pink, turquoise, yellow, and blue. You will definitely get to flaunt the Kimmys around with all kinds of color schemes and styles. And honestly, the shoes and I share the same name so I couldn't resist showcasing them and embracing everything about them, especially when on sale.

Navy blue is the color of stability and intelligence, and nothing can be more stunning than a women wearing this color as a sexy little dress. I want to shed light on this BCBGeneration Gathered Waist Dress because it is a conservative style that is versatile enough to justify its purchase. Whether it be a luncheon or dance party, this dress will hit the spot with its mysterious above the knee style. The square neckline and sleeveless tiered design at the shoulders make it a classic fashion staple. Isn’t it wonderful when all signs point to yes?!

But, it's even better that I found a great pair of shoes to go with the navy blue dress. I found the pair on the Nordstrom website: the Elizabeth and James Lang pump. The open-toe 4½ inch heels with tonal laces over a croc-embossed style create an uber sexy look that is undeniable. Hello catwalk here you come!

Lastly, I am obsessed with this perfect floral print Zucca bowler bag from Fendi. Fresh and floral, this bag is great to fit everything in without looking like an overnight bag. Fit your favorite things in this Fendi monogrammed bag with a wave of flowers in between. This fascinating bag gets two thumbs up and has made it on my birthday wish list. Hint. Hint.
