Hi. Welcome to my world! 

Books, art, food, our crazy world events, my busy life... just a few things I like to write about. 

At Last...Spring

At Last...Spring

As far as I'm concerned, there is nothing that puts a spring in your step like the first few days of...wait for it...Spring. This makes perfect sense because as as a season it represents renewal, growth and finally, WARMTH and COLOR.  

Every year around this time I like to give my wardrobe a shot in the arm, so to speak by adding some updated classics and color.  Enjoy and happy shopping! 

  1. Ok, so it does rain quite a bit in Spring...but that makes this happy yellow Barbour Trevose Jacket a very smart purchase. 
  2. A perfect outfit pick-me-up to add last minute flare, the Ikat Triangular scarf is light, cheery and versatile. 
  3. Bucket bags are having a big year and deservedly so. Classic and versatile, they're a keeper for years to come.  Madewell Mini Lafayette Bucket Bag
  4. New Rayban Wayfarer Color Splash in a kicky, Spring-like green. 
  5. Amour Vert (French for green love) is the brain child of a Parisian design duo who wanted to create fashionable clothes with an eco-conscience.  Check out their story here.  Buy this perfect maxi here.
  6. A warm weather staple, the strappy sandal, in a fun, citrus hue.  Joe's Jeans Ranger sandal
  7. Every wardrobe should have a couple perfect-fitting, basic white button downs. This one is from the folks at Claridge & King who specialize in such things. The Great White Shirt #1.
  8. I think Denim can go just about anywhere these, play...Monday or long as you give them appropriate supporting cast.  These wide-legged cropped pair shake things up a bit.
  9. Hunter rain booties. Adorable, practical, perfect.
