NEW YORK, NEW YORK | APRIL 12, 2014
Taylor looked super cute and casual in this everyday springtime outfit. We haven’t seen Taylor wear her cutout Sam Edelman oxfords since 2010, which explains why they are no longer being sold. It’s unfortunate because they’re really on-trend right now and probably my personal favorite pair of shoes she owns. She paired these with some new purchases like her black shoulder bag, cuffed shorts, and a sunglasses that provided a pop of color to her look.
You all unanimously liked the new layout, so it’s going to stay for now! I am still searching for her striped top.

Trying something new with this layout where all the items in an outfit are displayed. Not sure if I’m going to keep it but I would love to hear your feedback! My site will be going through some changes over the next few days, just an FYI.
Taylor’s spring NYC look featured a tailored striped dress, nude handbag, and a classy pair of oxford heels.
What do you guys think of this new setup, keep or no?

Taylor was feeling extra spontaneous this week and surprised a super fan at her bridal shower wearing this adorable mint eyelet dress. The silhouette of this frock was very Modcloth-esque, so I naturally checked there first and there it was on the front page. Perfect if you’re still in need of an Easter ensemble!

It’s time for March favorites! And although spring is officially in effect, Taylor spent most of her time this month in New York—-so stylish, cozy coats were her #1 trend for this month. Here are our favorite March fashion picks:
#1 - Layered in Lace
Although not exactly out of her comfort zone, Taylor looked delicately pretty in this paneled lace frock at the Weinstein Oscar party.
Dress: Oscar De La Renta
#2 - City Chic
Taylor forshadowed her future time spent in NYC with this cool set of workout wear. While still rocking her signature off-the-shoulder look.
Top: Wildfox Couture Sunglasses: Ray Ban Shoes: Keds Bag: D&G
#3 - Business Casual
Need to look put together but not over-the-top corporate? Take Taylor’s trick of pairing a nice blazer and collared shirt with some colored trousers for a fun, cute, and work appropriate outfit.
Boots: Isabel Marant
#4 - Not Too Tough, But Enough
Rocking a leather biker jacket can sometimes come off a bit boxy and boyish if not worn right. By pairing it with a circle skirt you add a bit of femininity while still getting that edgy vibe.
Jacket: J Brand Boots: Rag & Bone Bag: Cuore & Pella
#5 - Bundled Up Beauty
A warm, comfortable, and stylish outfit like this one never goes out of style. Use staple pieces like scarves, skinnies, and a pea coat to achieve this look.
Pants: Black Jewel Boots: Frye Bag: D&G
#6 - Sultry Stunner
An old Hollywood style inspired red carpet look isn’t unordinary for Taylor. However, this particular look had a dark and sexy twist to it that was incredibly eye-catching.
Dress: Julien Macdonald
#8 - Patterned in Plaid
If you’re looking for a new winter coat for next year but want it to be trendy and interesting—-try a print! This plaid toggle coat paired with a beanie is super cute and on-trend!
Coat: Dolce Vita Bag: D&G Boots: Rag & Bone Ring: Red C Jewels Beanie: Urban Outfitters

Taylor looked flawlessly fierce on her last day in NYC wearing this J Brand ‘Karle’ biker jacket. Sometimes leather jackets can come off too edgy or boyish, but by pairing it with a semi-flared circle skirt Taylor gave the outfit just the right amount of femininity.
