new in: the Clare V x Other Stories bucket bag – my favorite piece from the capsule.
it is finally, finally starting to feel a little bit like spring here.
so they are calling for maybe a little snow tomorrow, but as far as i'm concerned, i'm done with winter. done! wardrobe planning for spring this year is all about experimenting with shapes and textures, and having fun with color.
on the list:
a medium taupe work satchel // a structured-but-not-stiff tote/satchel with compartments for files.
a sculptural long coat // really feeling a light grey coat this season with a soft, clean line.
a dusty rose silky cashmere scarf // love this color for spring. (mini style resolution this year: trying to not be afraid of color!)
a pair of white jeans // i've had white jeans on my wp list before, but never really found the right pair. we'll see if that changes this season.
some kind of silky maxi dress // looking for something diaphanous and colorful and suitable for a friend's summer wedding.
a fun bucket bag (also here) // an inexpensive pop of color and just big enough for a spring weekend. (FYI, the red leather used in the collection is actually a bright fluo orangey-red in real life.)
the casual leather slip-ons // i realized that the shoes that are easiest to get on are the ones that get the most wear. these are on par with my Toms as my favorite no-socks slipons.
oversized infinity scarf // wardrobe winner. the light blush tan color also lightens up everything else, and the texture is gauzy but cozy.
a fun fashion sweatshirt // because if you're going to wear a sweatshirt, it should be fun :)
Betty Halbreich (just ordered a copy of her memoir), Alice Munro, Sofia Coppola.
mood colors: navy, variations of pink, etoupe, grays.
P.S.: the closet edit continues at the shop with the hero parka, HOPE Stockholm et al.
how is your wardrobe planning coming along?
