Bright, cheery and undeniably bold; we are obsessing over a new hue for those warmer months ahead and she goes by the name of marigold! As eye-catching as she is, marigold promises to be the color of the spring season. From shades of bright yellow to golden orange, this warm tone is the perfect for adding a hint of sunshine to any look and it’s guaranteed to brighten both your outfit and your mood! We are super excited to incorporate this color into our warmer weather outfits, but we totally understand that this hue can be a bit finicky to work with! Before you write off this refreshing color completely, check out these awesome ways to incorporate marigold’s many variations into your wardrobe!

The art of the treasure hunt is being open to any find at any time, while maintaining a greater perspective of items you’re hoping to score. That’s the thrill for me at least. I’m always looking for luxury textiles when I’m at Crossroads. Silks, cashmere, & luxury items pull me first. Sweaters are an absolute great item to peruse at any Crossroads.
I picked up this crimson beauty in Studio City. I’m crazy about a super soft and cozy sweater that gives a pop of color to the grayer skies of colder weather. This one boasts side slits – another super favorite fashion feature – so it’s ultra-easy to wear and lends itself very well to 501’s, another fave. Plus, it’s 90% merino // 10% cashmere.
Are you a sweater person? How do you like them? Fitted? Turtleneck? Ultra Chunky? Cropped? Oversize? Or ALL of the sweaters (like me)?
Each season there is always at least one trend that is so bold and striking, that you’re never quite sure if you can pull it off. Move over belt bags, patent leather is coming through! These glossy pieces are without a doubt one of our favorite trends to emerge in 2018, and we can’t seem to get enough of it!

One of my greatest passions is shopping in zip codes that aren’t my own. With Crossroads, I can always get a bit of local flavor as the community surrounding each location quite literally stocks each store. While I was in Costa Mesa, CA, I spotted a Crossroads, and within 2.5 seconds, I was parked and inside.
I bought a few items that day, and one of the stars to emerge are these furry heels! These are the type of fashion item that you’re on the fence whether it’s the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen OR not at all. I went with amazing, and it wasn’t a mistake! I get compliments everywhere I go, and they are super comfy and elevate every look I pair with them. Personally, I think any design or fashion item that pushes the envelope a bit is typically the most exciting and winds up being my favorite element.
There’s nothing that makes a bit more formal look work for day and, quite literally running around town, like sneakers. Converse are a classic that just keep on giving. White high-top chucks are a low-cost investment; I highly encourage everyone to jump on. They are perfect with basically everything – in the summer with cut-offs (I refuse to use “jorts” – I mean, what is that!?), with cropped pants, and of course, with a fun dress.
I’m a Converse-for-life kind of girl. Are you into the sneakers and a dress look? What’s your go-to sneaker?
