Hope everyone had a nice Easter Weekend! I got a few workouts in to balance out all the food and wine I drank! If you follow me on snapchat (@carlinaharris) you saw I ate the most delicious paella at a romantic little Spanish restaurant in San Francisco, then had dim sim on Saturday night — I'm telling you I needed those workouts, I ate a lot! 

The Harbingers, a local SF online boutique, sent over the loveliest care package and in it was this fabulous blouse, needless to say I'm obsessed. I wanted to bring out the red details on the collar so I rocked my red culottes and a bright pout. Everything at this online store is under $100, and since they are having a sale, this shirt is only $29! Get it while you can!

Have a great Monday!

Today officially marks the second day of Spring! While it begins to warm up here and there it's been consistently gloomy for the most part. I can't wait to rock my flirty floral numbers, gladiator sandals and lighter denim looks when the sun does come out to play, or perhaps a trip to someplace warm may be in order. In the meantime windy walks in San Francisco will proceed in turtlenecks, high-waisted flares, a chunky tribal coat and my new favorite kicks- the gold stiletto boots, as seen here.

Happy Monday, y'all!

As the fashion folk lined the walls of the building, pushing to get to the front of the line or waiting for their name to be called by the lady with the clipboard to grant them access to the elevator — where they would be gifted with coveted photo and backstage pass rights, I watched. Intimidated a bit. But then I saw Jenna Lyons aboard the elevator and I secretly smiled knowing I was next in line for backstage.

Traveling solo up, up, up I didn't really know what to expect up there. I've seen a few shows but backstage and photo credentials are usually not included in my catwalk experience. By the time I got to the abandoned-like warehouse space of the top floor where the show was to be held, the models were fully makeup ready, yet only half dressed, and still running around practicing routines and calming their nerves. Intimidated at first I tip-toed around, then started shooting. Detail shots, makeup shots, shots of the models getting shot. 

I made my way to my "seat" standing room only on the risers, but it really was the best seat in the house. I had an unobstructed view of it all. I gasped when I saw a few fashion celebs (more Jenna, Tavi Gevinson, the Urban Bush Babes) seating in actual front row seats. But then, I saw Jonah Hill duck in minutes prior to the show starting like the real celeb he is, and I nearly fell off that riser. Of course I handled it like the pro I am, only secretly snapchatting the whole thing when Jonah or his posse weren't looking. 

The Rachel Antonoff's shows are known for their quirky experiential factor, she's done a sock hop and a murder mystery, so I was super excited to see what was in store for this evening. The setup had a live band in the corner. The presentation area was lined with little rows of desks topped with a pink rotary phone, pad, pen and plant- the essentials of any office space. The band started playing and within seconds the "secretaries" came out marching, and singing and dancing, in their finest Rachel Antonoff gear, to "A Secretary is not a Toy" from musical sensation How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Jack Antonoff/Lena Dunham's bf made a cameo for a few seconds playing the quintessential male boss. 

After the routine the lights came back on and the models posed by their desks for us to snap away at. Seeing the garments up close after seeing them shimmy on stage was a real treat! All the details from the matching nails to the No. 2 pencils well placed in a few buns were so beautiful to see up close. This was probably one of my favorite shows to date. Miss Antonoff, I'm hooked.

It's starting to feel like Spring in many places around the country, and in less than a few week's time we''ll be officially celebrating the start of a new season. Spring gets me every year. I always think the season I'm currently in is my favorite but by the tail end of it I'm itching to try out the new trends, albeit inappropriate at the time, and experience a shift in seasonal temps. 

Thanks to Zappos and ShopStyle this Spring I'm excited about lighter layers, a play on textures and muted hues. I partnered with the two to bring you a jump on my Springtime style. Zappos asked me to create a head-to-toe Spring look and ordering from them couldn't of been easier. I'm a huge fan of online shopping and Zappos.com literally has every brand possibly imaginable on their website, including one of my favorite shoe brands, and some new-to-me ones as well. I placed my order and didn't need to wait very long, because within two days my shipment arrived! Thankfully everything fit just fine but if something were amiss the return policy at Zappos is pretty great- a full 365 days to return or exchange. That's the smartest way to shop if you ask me!

My selects included a lightweight Jack by BB Dakota tweed topcoat- which had the most amazing distressed pocket detailing. It's chic and elegant, and can see it being worn with light wash skinny denim, or a mini-dress, with the jacket draped over it just so. My pièce de résistance — the overall dress by Lucky Brand had me at hello, they are so my jam and so versatile. These will be getting worn quite a bit when it really starts to warm up! And to accessorize it all with I went with a classic pair of white pointy toe pumps by Coach so my Spring look really popped. I've had these pumps on my mind for the last few months ever since getting them in black. It was only natural to score them in a lighter shade come Spring. Alright, ladies what you excited about for Spring?
