Okay, so admittedly these jeans are equal parts Beetlejuice and baseball uniform. However, I have seen them on a few ladies on these here interwebs looking enviably chic in them. Going back to my uniform, sometimes a basic blazer, tee, and jeans is effortless and classic–and sometimes it’s stale and boring. For instances when you need a sartorial pick-me-up, I think these vertical stripes could be just the ticket. What do you think?
I think the 80-degree weather is frying my brain–all I remember wanting to say about this drawing is easy transitional dressing. Something about mixing cold- and hot-weather items in a way that works for in-between times. With the crazy swings in temperature we’re having, that might mean adding a blazer and anorak on colder days or swapping out the booties for sandals on days like today. All I know it that it’s too early to turn on the AC and my apartment is basically a greenhouse. Pass the popsicles and vinho verde, amiright?!

This is, admittedly, not a groundbreaking outfit or anything. But it is what I wore all weekend. And what I want to be wearing all spring–crisply cut blazers in spring colors, easy tees, skinnies (I can’t give up my waxed pairs yet!), and great shoes (beige canvas booties until things warm up). Maybe a candy-colored mini bag? It feels so “me” that once I pick up another blazer or two, I don’t think I’ll need to add anything to my wardrobe until summer. Kind of a wonderful testament to finding what works and sticking to it. Do you have a current uniform?
P.S. This isn’t a self-portrait or anything–I just took my outfit and put it on this lovely watercolor model I have at my disposal.
As we shed the layers of winter, how nice would it feel to minimize what you schlep around? These mini bags in a decidedly spring palette have me wishing for bare legs and long June days. Just grab your keys, cards, phone, and go.
Aren’t Saturday mornings the best? I think they might be my favorite time of the week. Cozy couch, a good book, time to actually make and savor something delicious for breakfast…it just feels like the whole weekend’s possibility stretches out in front of you. This past Saturday, we trekked to Filter Coffeehouse in between errands and sat outside even though it was a little too cold yet. I captured a few signs of spring on the way. Slowly but surely, things are starting to come alive.
