Spring 09

Usually my spring picks are filled with trendy, colorful indulgences straight from the runway, but as I started putting this season's wish list together I found myself drawn to something entirely different. Rather than bright pieces or vivid prints, a simple color palette-specifically black, white, and nude-captivates me right now. There's something about these classic colors, and neutral hues in general, that feels particularly fresh, especially when mixed with a few of-the-moment accessories!
