Just when you thought layering was just for your cold weather seasons, think again. The latest trend is all about the “apron skirt” or in other words, rocking your skirt over your dress! Whoa? Yeah, I thought the same thing, but if done right, it’s actually kind of clever! Just check out some of the designer styles below.

How cute and Springlike is this look! Jamie attended a concert at the Banana Republic Flatiron Flagship store in NYC on last Thursday wearing a printed circle skirt and white button down blouse. She added to the black and white look, with eye catching must have sandals that paired back to a multi colored belt. I am in love with these shoes and I must say I am also starting to love Jamie’s effortless and ever so chíc style (skirt is available now at Banana Republic for $120)!
Yeeesss! I love the fact that gauchos are trending for the season. They are so easy to wear and super comfortable! The color of choice is usually black, however I did find a blush colored one that I think should be perfect for a Spring love affair!
Pink gaucho from Forever21 $24.90
High waist gaucho from Charlotte Russe $9.49
7th Avenue Gaucho Pant (also in blk) from New York & Company $18
Women’s Topshop Crepe Gaucho Pants from Nordstron $75

This spunky and ever so talented teen is one of the youngest fashion designer in the world. At 8 years old Taylor began taking sewing classes that allowed the Austin, TX native to merge her strong interest in both fashion and artistry. Today at age14, Taylor is so advanced for her age that she has started college studying Fine Arts and is a member of Mensa, a high IQ society.
Growing up, her favorite designers included Karl Lagerfeld and Diane Von Furstenburg. She fell under the mentorship of Charlotte Ronson, who is one of the most sought after fashion designers. Taylor also got a little help from Liza Deyrmenjian who runs a NY based Fashion Business Coaching Firm. It is there at age 9 Taylor learned about sourcing fabrics, buying whole sale and finding models.
The biggest achievements from Taylor came recently. In 2013 she was able to showcase her pieces at NY Fashion Week and just this past September she was picked up by Nordstrom to feature 13 looks from her collection. According to Taylor, the keys to her success have been “blood, sweat and glitter.”
“Blood because it takes a lot of passion and sacrifice. Sweat because of the time and hard work. Lastly Glitter because of the imagination and creativity. There must be a dream behind your business.” Certainly Taylor has done just that and I look forward to seeing how she will continue to grow throughout the years.
Did you know?

As always when my First Lady preaches, she delivers a message that is both profound and timely. Today I was reminded that I am a “Kings kid.” In other words, I am a child of the most high God and He wants the best for me. Most importantly, all I have to do is pray, announce and watch God perform in my life.
I also was reminded that in life we all go through tough periods (also known as seasons) and it’s important to understand and grow from them. Now, that Spring is here, we all look forward to warmer weather, flowers budding and what was once dead, made alive again. Just like the change in weather is taking place, a change in your situation is taking place for the better.
We need to get to a point where we begin to not only speak what we want, but believe we can have what we want too. This is the season where God will set up and set down. Whatever it is you need in this new season, step out on Faith. Lastly when you do, don’t bring any old thoughts into your new season, or no more “stinky thinking” as First Lady said!
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”
