michelle_mason_tumb.jpgPerfectly coiffed celebs on the red carpet and TV characters like Blair Waldolf certainly provide their style inspiration, but we really long for that effortlessly chic style of off-duty models (see Altimira). That’s why we’re so drawn to the ultra cool spring collection by Michelle Mason (fittingly, a former model). She mixes casual slouchy pieces with edgy leather styles for the perfect combination of sexy and laid back. View the entire Mason by Michelle Mason lookbook online at



We love the mixture of a delicate chain with a chunky stone in this necklace by Nallik. The chunk of raw aventurine gives the piece a rustic and whimsical feel, while the chain keeps it feminine. Keep with the theme by pairing this piece with a thick, chunky sweater and boots.

Nallik is a two-year-old jewelry collection by NYC-based designer Jean Balke. The line uses all natural components, such as semiprecious natural stones and found objects, contrasted with metals. The word “Nallik” means “protection and nurturing in a loving way” as translated from the Inuit language.
