obsessed -- nanette lepore.


ATTAINABLE: Gap Ikat Canvas Shorts
www.gap.com; $49.95
Come warm weather, there's little that can substitute for a great pair of shorts. These Gap ones are absolutely charming. I love the shades of blue and pretty ikat print. Furthermore, the length is perfection -- not teeny-bopper-short but hit at a fantastically flattering point. Brilliant when paired with oxfords or flat sandals and a simple tee or button-down.

Some designers' pieces are instantly recognizable -- Nanette Lepore is most certainly one of them. Her signature pieces are bright, cheery, and always ladylike. Every one of these factors makes them perfect for a lighthearted touch to any spring wardrobe. With pieces ranging from jackets to dresses in candy-colored hues, every look is sophisticated and polished without ever losing a sense of whimsy.

One of my favorite things about Nanette Lepore dresses is the hidden details -- from a distance, this is simply a pretty, structured dress in a killer shade of green. However, moving in reveals the impeccable seaming at the bust and waist and perfectly-gathered pleats. This is literally the perfect every-occasion frock.

I'm absolutely obsessed with the whimsical nature of these shorts. They're such a fun print and are in the greatest colors. The best part, of course, is the beautifully-tailored, perfectly-proportioned shape. These would be fantastic with a simple, floaty top and a pair of sky-high heels for an evening out.

In the softest shade of lilac imaginable, this jacket takes on pastels perfectly. I adore the three-button closure and charming shape -- the ruched sleeves and detailed back are nothing short of fabulous. This jacket would be perfect with a pencil skirt for the office but would transition beautifully into evening as well.

Speaking of ladylike -- it doesn't get more more sophisticated or chic than this stunning lace frock. The shape, though simple, is truly classic and incredibly versatile, and the waist detail is nothing short of brilliant. My favorite part, of course, is the lovely lace overlay, which takes this frock to an entirely new level of luxe.

What are YOU obsessed with right now?
