goodbye, mild but draggy winter. hello, sunny days ahead!
finally getting energized for spring after a rather long stretch of style hibernation. spring feels shorter and shorter every year, but i'm determined to get the most out of jacket weather regardless. what's on the roster? there isn't a terribly long list of wants vs needs, the main objective is to replace some worn-out staples and add a few elements of 'new' to the collection.
on the list:
clean skinny jeans – having just completed a much needed spring-cleaning of my denim stash, on the list is a pair of basic indigo jeans. Madewell has been acing the denim game the past few years, and this season their 8" skinnies are right on – great material, not too skinny (the cut is more of a cigarette leg vs a legging), true to size.
white linen blazer – this is one of those items that has been on a wp list for so many seasons now that it's become kind of a running joke. the search continues...
peony silk blouse – really feeling a blush pink for the season, and this option from everlane is just lovely.
zara camo jacket – versatile always, and to me this is the s/s version of a great neutral print.
adidas slides – i need to replace a pair of worn-out house slippers, and these are solid enough for quick errands around the block too.
newbark leather slide sandals – ...the chic leather versions of the above. i'm planning on doing many a brunch and farmer's market run in these.
birkenstock arizonas – a classic – everyone should have a pair of these. PS: check out the New Yorker's profile of the humble birk.
stan smiths (more sizes at adidas online) – wearing these all the time. the fit and leather on these stans are way better for some reason than my previous pair of superstars, which fit rather wide.
mini pashli bag in red – you know how some styles are just ideal for your lifestyle? in my case it's the compact crossbody bag. this will be handy for summer and travel, and the red + silver hardware is fun and gorgeous.
Keri Russell /the lady's got style! i love how she never looks too 'done' and has stayed true to yet also evolved a consistent look since her Felicity days.
apartment therapy /i could spend days clicking around in the infinitely inspiring and resource-filled world of AT and the kitchn. so many great ideas for maximizing style with pragmatism for everyday living.
what's on your wishlist this season?
