Spring Stroll in Santana Row

California pastels Spring Style

Spring style typically includes pops of pastels, but this is especially true around Easter. Plus, men and women look equally attractive in pastels so don’t shy away from baby pink polos, mint green or salmon seersucker shorts. It’s always nice that pastel tops always go with white denim while simply ignoring the ‘No White Before Memorial Day’ rule.

From Easter Eggs, Peeps, to aisles of candies that will be on clearance Monday morning; I’ve always had a crush on spring pastels. We’re spending Easter in California with my family and the past week we’ve been running around the Bay Area spending afternoons in meetings and taking AM walks to Jamba Juice. Oh how I’ve missed my Orange Dream Machine all the way from Switzerland. Here’s a few shots last week as we strolled through Santana Row near San Jose…

Currently in California

There is nothing like sunshine to make the weeks fly by faster than ever. From Savvy Sleepers to visiting family and friends; I’ve spent the past week in Northern California from Chico, San Francisco (pictured above), Sacramento and heading to Mendocino County tomorrow for Easter. While the weather has been amazing, accessorizing with allergies – which seem to be especially bad this Spring – has been an unwelcome sniffly surprise. Any suggestions for non-drowsy allergy meds?

New California posts coming soon and more updates on Instagram @Savvy_Spice.

Hope you’re having a great week!

Scarlet Fever

SS 041114 Red COVER

Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it’s on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you’ve got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration.’ ~Taylor Swift.

Leave it to Taylor to bring some over-the-top drama to one of my go-to primary colors. Although the truth is ‘red‘ is one of those romantic, enticing colors that can be worn in small doses with any casual outfit – even for women I’ve heard  say ‘I can’t wear red.’ I caught a bit of the scarlet fever a couple weeks ago and here’s a few of my favorite simple ways to add pops of red to any Spring look…

Is red lipstick a ‘Do’ or ‘Don’t’ for you?

Have a great weekend! I’m looking forward to getting back to San Francisco for a visit!  There’s also 2 days left to enter the LVX Nail Lacquer & Savvy Sleepers International Giveaway. Enter Here. ~xo

Style is Timeless

Basel World Savvy Spice White Hermes Belt You know the sayings: ‘Time is money,‘ ‘time is precious,’ ‘waste your money and you’re only out of money, but waste your time and you’ve lost part of your life.‘ The Swiss seem to value and manage time far more efficiently than Americans. There are clocks everywhere in Switzerland, trains are on time, appointments don’t run late,  ‘free consultations‘ aren’t part of business and when my husband says he’ll be home in three minutes, he literally walks in the door 180 seconds later.

In a land where punctuality is posh and there’s no such thing as fashionably late; it’s no wonder that the world’s finest watch brands come from here. Swatch, IWC, Chopard, Carl F. Bucherer, Omega, Rolex and the list could go on, are all Swiss. This brings me to the world’s largest annual jewelry and watch show, Basel World, which was held in Basel, Switzerland last week. I attended a blogger event hosted by Carl F. Bucherer in a light-weight 70′s style shirt dress and tried on wrist candy worth more than my future dream house… Read more ›

Get Atlantic-Pacific’s ‘Party Palm’ Look for Less

Atlantic Pacific Look for Less Savvy Spice

I‘ve mentioned before that Atlantic-Pacific is one of my favorite style bloggers so when she posts a look that I love, I instantly wonder if I can create a similar style with budget-friendly fashion. In 2012, I showed a DIY Creme de la Creme and last year an ‘On the Go‘ look-for-less in Munich.

Her recent look party palm reminded me of a dress I bought last summer and featured in a post called ‘Primal Prints,’ so I can wait to test it again on a summer vacay while sipping a Mai Tai. I loved her take on the simple tropical styling and here’s my top tricks for re-creating your own palm print party dress later this summer… Read more ›
