As I mentioned in my look at James Perse spring & online exclusives, James Perse was kind enough to send me one of their online exclusives, this linen blend ellipse skirt, to try on and review for you (I was never going to keep it, it was just to try on).
This James Perse cashmere tee has been such a challenge to wear/style. I got it during a private sale last year, and I’ve only worn it a few times. Now, though, I’ve discovered the perfect ways to wear it; either as a tee like this, when it’s around 70 degrees, or layered over a tank dress for a little warmth on my shoulders.
I’ll save my weekend packing list for another day, because today I just want to talk quickly about the Petra tote in Gesso. I’m EXTREMELY happy with it. I was originally going to get it in black, because, well, I always default to black, but I really just fell in love with the light gray for spring, and thought why not? I have a black tote that I love already, so why not add something lighter instead of a duplicate?
Happy Monday! This weekend I went through the box in the top of my closet of clothes/shoes I’d been holding on to for spring and purged A LOT. It’s finally promising to warm up here, so I went through my closet and the box of clothes to see what I want to wear this season and what I’m ready to get rid of. Among the things I was finally ready to part with were two pairs of Repetto ballet flats, leaving me only with this pair I’m wearing today.
I am BEYOND excited to be partnering with Emerson Fry* this season to review some of their spring 2015 collection, and here are the first arrivals. I’ve been a big fan of the brand since they launched, but have always been quite wary to buy anything, not being able to try it on in person first.
Ah…at least the sun is out. We still have snow on the ground where the sun doesn’t shine, because it’s still very cold out, but I’ll take it. I’m so pleased with my new Sundry top; and I can’t wait to wash it, actually – it’ll get softer and slouchier I think. And I spent a lot of time yesterday since we were basically snowed in, in my closet trying on spring outfits with my new Rachel Comey wedges to make sure I REALLY REALLY want to keep them. I do. They are phenomenal, and completely transform my outfits.
I must put on my warmest sweaters and brave the elements. But still, I dream of spring, and sunshine, and warmer weather. AND being able to wear spring-y clothes. Speaking of which, after I wrote my “dreaming of spring” post last week, I placed an order at Shopbop. And not for anything I mentioned therein. (perhaps technically I made it to March without buying anything? because I haven’t received it yet?)
