Help me find a cute coral cardigan for spring

I need your help. Where can I find a cute coral cardigan that will go with this top? I have the hardest time shopping for clothing when I know what I want. I have picked a few styles I like from Polyvore. I don't look good in long cardigans because I have a pear shape body. I prefer long or 3/4 sleeves and v neck.

Rachel Bilson is in Vancouver wearing a very festive Olympic themed jacket. I think she deserves a gold medal for her multi color ringed jacket. Looks like she will be warm in the stadium seats watching the winter games.

Do you like Shortcuts or The Long Way?

It has been about a year since I cut my hair, but in between I have dyed it many colors and damaged it so it is time. Im one of those girls who actually likes short hair and cuts her own hair when it makes sense. I took off a lot of hair and everyone has noticed and liked it too. Im still getting used to it, its growing on me...haha What do you think? At first I wanted to make it shorter.

Voluspa has many different collections and styles so I'm sure there is a candle or two that will make your nose happy and your mind relaxed.

Tommy Bahama Island State of Mind

To keep myself form getting S.A.D.'s (seasonal adjustment disorder) I escape to hot tropical places in my mind. Lately I have been thinking of the Bahamas because I will hopefully be going there this summer. I have found that Tommy Bahamas is very helpful in my pursuit of Island daydreaming in the midst of February. To top things off they have a restaurant in Newport Beach that will be inhabited by me one of these days. So lets stop talking and start daydreaming, I picked out some of my Islander accessories to share.

City Life Home Furnishings

Over the weekend I was in Brea and drove by City Life Home, a fun looking furniture store. I was on my way to work after the gym otherwise I would have gone in to soak up all of the wonderful furnishings. However I did have a chance to browse their website, Facebook & Blog and I really love their look. Sine I'm an Interior Design student it is exciting to know that there is a hip furniture store in North Orange County. I'm hoping to get a chance to see the store in person this week and maybe even do a blog post about it. After that I'm hoping they will hire me because I have been dreaming of working at a furniture store for a long time.

Dear Summer

Brazilian Love Song-Featuring Beyonce & Alicia Keys

Looks like there will be a beautiful Brazilian inspired video for "Put it in a Love Song" by Alicia Keys featuring Beyonce. The video is being filmed on location in Morro Da Conceicao, a Rio De Janeiro slum in Brazil. I'm not sure when this will be aired but I can tell you that it is going to be good based on the photos below.

Just for fun I styled an outfit inspired by this video shoot in Brazil. A lot of the items are Diane Von Furstenburg because she actually has a Rio De Janeiro line. I used vibrant colors like fusch, turquoise, purple and apple red to convey the Brazilian look. The floral dress is perfect to put on over your bathing suit after being at the beach all day.

Roadkill's Spring Roll Out

I have told you about the wonderful So cal boutique Roadkill, and I will do it again, and again, and again... They have gotten bigger and better with age and every fashion season. I have yet to go inside the store to get a look for myself, however their Facebook is loaded with fun photos that have me springing toward spring. One of my favorite things about Roadkill is their one of a kind window displays. For Valentines Day the store looks sweeter than a candy shop and will make you lust for something lovely. All those fun conversation hearts really could get you talking. I want to have a conversation with my boyfriend about getting all of the clothing and jewelry in those displays.
Roadkill really does a great job at thinking outside the box and they are green designers. Alot of the material they use for their displays in the windows and store have been refurbished and used many times in many ways. Now onto more Spring clothing. These are items that are featured on their Facebook page…
