I can’t help myself. I see the middle of February and then my head instinctively jumps to “how many more weeks until March?” Of course from there it’s a hop, skip and a jump to some sandals and HOLY SHIT IT’S TIME TO GO SHOPPING.
Thanks to nine hundred recently purchased magazines, here is my spring shopping list. (Items from the above inspiration board are referenced if they can be)
Black jersey jumpsuit
It’s a little disco, but jersey fabric is endlessly flattering and this thing can be dressed up or down and packed and repacked easily. I see it being worn to shreds.
Kaliko Grey Sleeveless Jersey Jumpsuit, €95
Navy and white wide-striped t-shirt
Is there anything more classic than a bold, nautical stripe? No. There is not.
Cotton t-shirt, LnA at Selfridges (UK), €70
Black maxi skirt
I’d like something slimmer rather than fuller here, but with a great drape.
Neutral maxi skirt
Antipodium, silk chiffon skirt (www.asos.com) – coming soon. €299
I dream of Hermes.
Gold flat wedge sandals
The flat wedge is huge this season and I for one am THRILLED. A little height without killing your back? Yes, please.
Kate Spade, Beachy Gold Sandal, $198
Thinking I may try some white frames this year…
Lightweight button down silk shirt
Big trend this spring. I love them with skinny pants, flats or heels!
Loft – banded collar. Not yet available. $50
Wide leg pants – higher waist
Aren’t we all so glad the low-rise trend is waning? The higher waist totally lengthens legs and the wide leg is so light and elegant.
New white tshirts
Folks, stock up. Seriously. Wear them over EVERYTHING and be sure to do with with bright, solid colored bottoms for the color-blocked look that’s all over the place. Casual, dressy and formal – you’ll need them everywhere.
Banana Republic Timeless Crewneck Tee, $20
Wide canvas woven belt
I want this for pants, skirts and to define a waist on a maxi- or flowy dress.
Tory Burch Marled Webbing Waist Belt, $175
Bright smock/shift shape dress
So fun and forgiving. I tend to live in dresses in the spring and summer just because of the heat. I’ll find some cotton versions that are great to run around in as well as a nice one to dress up or down.
Large black/white patent leather tote
To carry everything and play off of the color blocking boldness for spring…
Kate Spade “The Journal” Maryanne Tote, $425
White skinny pants
Oh, the search for the perfect white pant is ENDLESS…
So what’s on your spring inspiration list? Is there something you MUST HAVE or lust after?
