Guest Post: Amy from Joey and the Owl

The fashionable face of Joey and the Owl, Amy, is a friend and fellow New Yorker who also hails from New England. For as long as I've known Amy, I've been impressed by her on-point fashion, and I often find myself asking where she got the classic bracelet or funky pair of heels she's wearing.

Amy mixes high-end and low-end items expertly, and puts together trendy, yet always appropriate, outfits. She offered to share her spring wish with us list below!

"These are a few things that I want and love for spring.

My favorite color is yellow and I love lemons, so the blazer, heels, and Keds are a no-brainer. I really like wearing a bright red lip when I wear yellow because I think the two colors really compliment each other. The Kate Spade clutch that resembles a book is the cutest thing, and I think it would be a great addition to any outfit.

Since I am a stay at home mom and don't dress up much, I want a midi skirt that has a funky pattern but isn't too expensive. I always turn to Zara or ASOS for items that are trendy, but I know I won't get much use out of. I found this great midi skirt on ASOS, and it is just what I was looking for.

White nails are a must this spring, and so are tops with messages on them. These Are The Days tee was a must have, just because I love the saying and that is how I feel right now in my life, being a new mother and watching my son grow and change everyday right before my eyes. Everyone needs a comfy, trendy sneaker and when I heard that Stan Smith for Adidas came out again, I had to snatch them up. These days, I live in sneakers!

My favorite go-to items when the weather gets warmer are a great floppy hat, my Ray Bans, and light-weight shirts with fun, summer colors on them. The Equipment strawberry tank and the Joie blouse are easy breezy items that can be dressed up or down and both have flirty, feminine patterns on them. A jean vest is something you can throw on with either of these two blouses to change it up a little.

My favorite place on Earth is Maine, and I have been going there every summer with my family, so when I saw these necklaces that are the outline of each state, I fell in love. How could you not?"

Thanks, Amy!
I love that sweet heart ring, and I'm really excited that tea-length skirts are so plentiful right now -- the graphic print on the one Amy picked is so modern and fun. What's your favorite? I'd love to hear!

  1. This is a lovely spring inspired style board. I would wear the white Butter colour and the yellow printed shoes are cute. )
