obsessed -- jill stuart.

COVETING: Madewell Saltspring Sweater-top
www.madewell.com; $98
I'm all about super light, airy pieces for spring. This Madewell sweater-top is just such an item. I love how open the knit is -- perfect for layering over a flirty lace camisole and pairing with jeans -- and the unique, fun neckline. I would definitely be wearing this sweater with immense frequency come spring; it would be so cute with skinny jeans or a fab little pencil skirt.

As spring approaches, I find myself increasingly drawn to pieces that are flirty and feminine. Jill Stuart's lines are always so beautiful and ladylike, filled with chic, sophisticated details to make every piece feel special: bows, pleats, and straps that give all of her clothes and accessories a truly gorgeous vibe. In light fabrics and pretty prints, I'm convinced that every item in this collection would make the perfect splash this spring.

I'm a sucker for a great sundress when the weather warms up, and this one is too cute for words. I love the not-so-typical color palate for spring and the bright trim is fab. My favorite part is the chic shirtdress style; it's perfectly pulled-together despite being casual.

If you're looking for something a bit more timely, this (on sale!) dress is nothing short of ladylike perfection. I love the deep plum shade -- it's so unexpected for late winter. The pleats are so pretty, and the neck tie is professional without being stuffy, thanks to the blocked stripes at the tips, coordinating perfectly with the trim on the skirt.

Jill Stuart Klara Suede Platform Pumps with Bow

Velvet. Bow. Ankle strap. Chunky heel. This shoe takes the meaning of "obsessed" to new levels entirely. I want a pair of these to wear with quite literally everything in my wardrobe. Dark skinny jeans and crisp white shirts. Tights and pencil skirts for work. Incredibly flirty dresses and sweet cardigans. I do in fact mean everything.

With a charming whimsical print, this sweet little romper is exactly what I'm craving right now, as the weather is incredibly cold and I'm tiring of my neutrals. I love that all of the exposed leg is balanced beautifully with a demure neckline. The orange chick print is darling and I love how it's styled here, with heeled oxfords and a simple skinny belt. Truly brilliant.
