Daily Inspiration: Donna Karan, Michael Kors & Marc Jacobs Spring 2012

I'm off on a spur of the moment trip to NYC today! My boss was nice enough to let me take a day off even though it was last minute.  I'm going with my aunt, cousin and little brother and we're going to the Museum of Natural History and perhaps the Central Park Zoo. I'm going to try to be a good blogger and take lots of photos!

Today I'm posting Spring 2012 collections with neutral color palettes. Starting off we have the wonderful Donna Karan, I usually prefer her DKNY collections but this season I totally fell in love with her namesake collection.  I am so obsessed with prints lately and this collection was full of great new prints.  It also showed tons of color-blocking which is a trend I really enjoy, I need to do it more often with my looks.

Here we have Michael Kors, another favorite of mine.  This collection was total safari chic! I LOVE the prints, colors, textures, cool sandals and pretty much everything about it.  I really want the bathing suit on the top right, the shape and print are great; I'm on the hunt for the perfect one piece since I don't really like bikinis but I can never find a good one, so I'm stuck with bikinis for now ;)

And, of course, we can't forget my favorite designer Marc Jacobs!  This collection was so pretty but sadly way too dressy for my lifestyle.  The following three looks are my favorites, especially the first dress. I would LOVE to have an occasion to wear it.
