Every woman loves jewelry from Tiffany & Co. The famed jeweler reached out to me with the opportunity do a streetstyle shoot with the brand-new Spring 2014 Atlas® Collection, in stores later this spring. I’ve never felt more glamorous on a generic workday than last week, when my friend Dana came with me to the Michigan Avenue flagship for a lunchtime fashion shoot. Audrey Hepburn had it all wrong with breakfast!
My streetwear-inspired look with the grey beanie, Japanese silver leather jacket and Kenzo sweatshirt was inspired by the idea that Atlas® jewelry is modern, fresh, and young enough to work with a variety of styles – not just the preppy look, which might be more expected. The Atlas® earrings and medallion I’m wearing above are part of an exclusive traveling jewelry show making its way across America’s Tiffany boutiques.
Here’s a better view of the gold Atlas® medallion:

Thais is wearing the most delightful silver patent-leather flats. They’re spot on for Spring 2014′s hottest trend – metallics. From Altuzarra to Proenza Schouler, this season’s strongest collections are shining a spotlight on the reflective material. Even Net-A-Porter’s magazine, The Edit, featured the top 10 metallic pieces on their weekly feature of must-have items, The List. Take a peek at the list, even just for inspiration!
I made it easy for you to get Thais’ look with these great silver metallic shoes. I wore out my Margiela x H&M silver sparkle glitter flats last year. Both shoes have holes in the bottom, so they’re retired. I haven’t chosen a new pair of metallic flats for 2014 yet, but I’m leaning towards the J.Crew pair above. Shiny metallic shoes are just so much fun to wear!
1. J.Crew metallic flats, $188
2. BP. pointed flats, $49
3. Luichiny pearlized oxfords, $59
After the most ferocious winter I’ve ever endured, it’s difficult to articulate just how wonderful it was to hit the streets with my camera this weekend. Imagine how thrilled I was to run into Shannon in Wicker Park! After literally hibernating for months on end, we finally emerged from this dark, brutal winter with spring weather starting to peek through. Transition dressing is here! Shannon’s outfit is the perfect spring look as we begin to blend our winter wardrobe with new pieces from spring collection. Shannon’s soft knits, neutral palette, and tasteful red accents. Plus, I couldn’t stop fawning over the stunning saturated crimson of the Saint Laurent ‘Sac Du Jour’ handbag. It’s simply the pitch perfect look for late March.
After all, last Friday heralded the arrival of spring. Thankfully temperatures rose just high enough for me to hit the streets with my camera this weekend. Four years ago, back when I was a fresh-faced blogger, I went hunting regardless of the weather. Hell, I even went out during snowmaggedon in February 2011. Don’t believe me? These days, if I can’t hold my camera with bare hands I don’t go out. End of story. Between the polar vortexes and arctic blasts, I’m getting too old for this shit.
