Spring Forward

March 1, 2010

Lately, I’ve been boggled down with fall trends but since fall is still 6 or 7 months away, I say we get back to spring because it’s just around the corner.  Goodbye shearling, arm warmers, and wool coats – we’ll see you soon!

Every day this week, I’m going to show you one of my ideal spring outfits.  You know the kind: an outfit that I wish I was wearing but for some unforeseen reason (lack of money, legs too white, still raining outside, not cool enough), I’m not.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to recreate these ideal outfits in the future (and by the future, I mean like asap).

Ideal Spring Outfit #1: Sheer Pastels, Khaki, and Two-Toned Oxfords

  5. Rag & Bone Cap Toe Lace Up Oxfords, Shopbop, $325 [Image via Shopbop]
  6. Anthropologie Woven Pendulum Sling Bag, Anthropologie, $118 [Image via Anthropologie]

This spring, it’s all about the sheer pastels and lace bralettes.  Though I’m not down to wear ultra, ultra sheer, this A.L.C. tee has just the right amount of sheerness to it.  Paired with a khaki skirt, this outfit is the perfect dose of feminine.  Since I’ve been wearing black all winter, this will be a lovely change in my wardrobe.  And what’s a spring outfit without oxfords?  I love the two-toned aspect of these Rag & Bone oxfords!  Oh, spring, where are you??  I can’t wait to dress for the sun!

Today I received a package in the mail from Anthropologie and my first thought was Omg, what did I accidently order?? I’m always unconsciously adding items to my virtual shopping carts so I feel like it could happen one of these days. Nonetheless, I was extremely excited. I don’t know about you but when I receive a package in the mail, I am on cloud 9. Just pure, uninhibited excitement. So I opened the box to find a smaller package inside:

How amazing is this?? And it’s just the package! So creative and beautiful! I will be duplicating this on a gift in the near future. It’s just way too cute not to spread the love.

Thanks again, Jaym!

It’s a funny thing, chasing the wind. Just when you think you’ve got hold of her, off she’s gone.

There’s nothing I appreciate more than a beautifully photographed and well-executed ad campaign.  Anthropologie’s new January catalog will literally transport you to a different place and time.  I am totally enthralled by it!  Not only do I want to wear those clothes and walk down those cobblestone, old world streets but I’m literally on the verge of cutting my hair into a bob.  In the words of Liz Lemon, “I WANT TO GO TO THERE.”
