Sorry readers about the delay in posts. It's been a really busy time in Boston, nevertheless, it is inexcusable. To get back into the swing of things, let's talk about the season. Spring break is upon us, meaning spring is most definately here! I just came back from Japan, and may I say the ladies there have the blush tones trend down to an art. Pastels are huge this spring (mint&peach people!!!)

This blazer by Prabal Gurung was shown in an article from Harper's Bazaar created about the mint trend. Click on the image to view the article.

Remember all those floral patterns from last spring? Well, I hope you didn't discard your wardrobe because they are back and in full swing. Be ready to see the streets flower filled! Peter Som had a simply wonderful spring collection full of patterns and color:

Another trend (which I am totally in love with) is the return of the Roaring Twenties! Flapper dresses galore and beautiful Twenties jewelry is in, in, in! Just take a look at the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection with an updated take of one of the most glamourous fashion periods:

Next time, in honor of my recent trip, I will cover Fashion Week in Tokyo. Oh, if only I had gone a week later (and was famous enough to get in)...

Spring break has come upon the Yards of Style trio. While Dennis is in Kentucky being adventurous and exploring caves and Sheena's having the time of her life in Japan, I'm back in New York shopping, watching tv, hanging with my puppy and now blogging because well I could be studying for the tests I have after my break but let's face it, why would I ever spend time doing actual important things.

Now I'm here to talk about fashion though, not my boring vacation because last time I checked this is a fashion blog.

  1. Let's start off talking about colors. I've been seeing a lot of peaches and mints out there (yes Sheena, I know you said in the beginning of the year that those would be the colors of the Spring. You are indeed psychic) Anyway, I got pants in each color. I will probably have them on in future pictures :)
  2. Espadrilles are also in. I'm not usually a fan of them but I've been seeing some cute pairs.

I wasn't too successful with shopping this break. Oh well, I'll have to go shopping back in Boston.
