We have been so ready for spring, ready for the days of vibrant colors, less layers, sunny, warm weather days, and did we say vibrant colors?

From Paris with Love | Bobo House Spring 2015 Collection

We have a weakness for all things Parisian, so we were anxious to check out the stylish and laid back luxury Spring/Summer 2015 collection for Bobo House, a collection of wardrobe staples inspired by the “Bourgeois-Bohème” approach to life in Paris. Created by Parisian-born, Eloise Lapidus, daughter of famed couturier, Ted Lapidus, the LA-based, Parisian-inspired brand boasts ultra soft tees, tanks, pullovers, and t-shirt dresses, some with cheeky French phrases and images.

BoBo House brings together the classic, relaxed, look that French women wear, boasting bohemian appeal of the California girl. Some of our favorite pieces from this downtown chic collection include the ultra soft, “l’amour, la musique et un whisky” (Love, music, and a Whiskey) Tee, “L’ete a St. Tropez” (Spring in St. Tropez) Crop Top, the Palm Tree Tees, and Sheer Panel Tops.

Of course the collection is not all witty tees, we were charmed by the above long Halter Top, and the coordinating  Maxi Skirt with wide waistband, as well as the knit Bomber Jacket. We know you’ll love this relaxed, and chic sportswear collection as much as we do.

JCPenney’s Vibrant Spring 2015 Collection

The things we truly love about fashion are the bold use of color and energetic prints. After months and months of dreary weather, gloomy colors and dank winter days, we appreciate the vast array of bright, happy colors, and lively prints, that the season of “newness” provides. This is why we are so in love with the vibrancy and buoyancy of JCPenney’s Spring 2015 offerings. The bold prints, graphic patterns and vivacious colors are what kept us going throughout the volatile winter, and we can’t wait to indulge in the offerings from Worthington, Nanette Lepore, Nicole by Nicole Miller, I Heart Ronson, Bisou Bisou, etc.

Prints that ranged from florals, to stripes, to digital patterns and are available in dresses, skirts, blouses, etc, with the bold patterns shown in women’s sportswear, office and daywear, with the bold patterns even moving into activewear, accessories, and footwear.

While we will definitely include a few solids and soft pastels to our ever-expanding spring wardrobe…..what better way to highlight a print then with a solid, our hearts truly lies with the joyous and upbeat feeling an eye-catching item brings. Speaking of eye-catching, and although we mentioned a few accessories, we’re drooling over the statement jewelry and classic handbags also available from JCPenney this spring. It doesn’t matter what color they are, we must get our hands on some of these pieces. We know you’d agree.
