Spring is peeking out from all corners of the Northwest. Daffodils are in full bloom in mid-February and I can actually see the days grow longer because there isn't a cloud in the sky. These hopeful beacons translate immediately to how I dress. See ya later Smart Wool socks (a begrudging good-bye to the striped pair), I'm shopping for a replacement for my Chloe wedge sandal.
Fashion's transitional seasons are my favorite. Come spring and fall, I'll devour the latest magazines and dogear pages that capture my both fancy and my reality. Spring is the time to bring in some fresh basics and play with proportion and layers.
Here are my hankerings (click the links to go directly to my coveted items):
1) A stack of crisp white T-shirts. My favorites come from The Gap, aptly named "Favorite T."
|The short-sleeved style comes in scoop, crew, and V-neck.|
2) Slouchy pants. I love these with a flat T-strap sandal or sneakers, top with a slinky T-shirt and tidy leather jacket ... tomboy chic!
|Find these, and many more, at Shopbop.|
3) All-round fabulous sneakers. I'll wear these with shorts, skirts, dresses ... maybe even a bathing suit.
|I'm a traditionalist and lean toward the tried and true brands. These Vans are from Piperlime, which has a vast selection of this style in many silhouettes and price-points.|
|It's almost too pretty.|
5) Easy, lightweight button-front and pop-over shirts to pair with shorts and skinny pants.
|Love the dreamy fabric and piping of this JCrew tunic.|
|I adore gingham! This Nili Lotan shirt will look outstanding with a pop of color - find it online or in store at Parallel.|
|Lean on this shirt forevermore. A classic denim silhouette (check that stitching!) from Levi's.|
