My hair stylist, Silvia, inspired me today. As she cut my hair, she told me a bit about herself; that she is an avid gardener, and has been since growing up on a farm in Italy. She said that she loves working with her hands and feeling the earth, and that one simply needs to see a flower garden to understand color and texture and beauty. And so, on this beautiful and sunny day, I came home and tried on my new favorite flowered shorts by alice + olivia, and prepared for spring. alice + olivia has been around since 2002, but is relatively new to me. Founded by Stacey Bendet, a native New Yorker, the line is both playful and sophisticated. This spring, the flowers are in bloom!
