spring planning this year is about filling a few major wardrobe gaps that will elevate the rest of my go-tos. the back to basics palette continues.
01 the chic and sophisticated dress (also here) // by who else – DVF, of course! i love the grown-up detail of the lace and the simplicity of the design. it's feminine without being fussy, and the style is appropriate for so many fancy occasions.
02 grey and black sweatshirts // along with my petra tote (see my review), this is one of my favorite recent everlane collections.
03 a new pair of glasses // the state of my 7+ year-old frames = finally time to get a replacement pair.
04 lightweight silk-cashmere shawl // per my seasonal scarves guide.
05 a lucky necklace (love this and this too) // looking for a lovely but understated talisman necklace to layer with my simple everyday one.
06 black Celine-esque trina sandals (more sizes/colors here) // technically this would be a summer buy, but last year these sold out so fast i'm not taking any chances – getting my pair now. best. sandals. ever. (see my review)
*winter update // a very efficient season overall. i've checked off everything on my winter wp list, and every piece has become part of the regular rotation, especially my market tote and black jeans.
thoughts on the season //
- i'd like to incorporate some elements of classical femininity into my wardrobe this year; a few upcoming friends' weddings also calls for a new dress or two.
- inspired by the magnificent novel that is The Goldfinch...and looking to add a new piece of meaningful jewelry to my forever collection.
- style motto for the year: the elegant minimalist, a la the Christophe Lemaire woman.
