Chill in the air getting you down? Perk up with a huge dose of classic designs, unexpected details, and super-pretty pictures. Oh, and get to know the name Katie Ermilio. Her newest spring '12 collection features backless peach dresses, bow-bedecked shorts in jewel tones, and peekaboo jewelry, giving us all the makings of a wardrobe fit for a princess — but without any cheesy undertones. We also greatly appreciate tulip silhouettes, clean-cut coats, and slim pastel trousers that can deliver some Jackie-O accessibility to nearly anyone's closet.

Embrace your girly side and take a look at the entire lovely lookbook.
