So it’s still super cold up my way in the Hudson Valley, and I am still bummed out that every slight bit of nice weather seems to be fleeting. It’s supposed to snow today! I mean come on; Mother Nature sure has a sense of humor. So I have been working on some upcoming spring posts and I can’t wait to share them with everyone, but it’s just too cold for staging photos. So I figured I’d share my Spring/Summer ’15 shopping list. I don’t typically invest in Spring/Summer clothes, I’m more a Autumn/Winter gal myself, but there are a few replacement pieces I need and some little luxuries I’d like to indulge in.
1. Lilly Pulitzer sundress – I have been searching for one that I love for a really long time now, and I can not decide. I know I want it to be fun, colourful and short. I am on the fence about these styles: Darcelle, Meridan, Janice, and Layton. I’m also going to check out the upcoming Lilly line at Target (I know, GASP! I’m a bad preppie…)
2. Espadrilles – I am really hard on my shoes and I often wear out inexpensive favourites, so yet again I am on the hunt for new espadrilles, so far I am loving: Frye, Sperry, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren (I pretty much want every colour!), Lucky Brand, Eric Michael Amanda. With an of these summer staples you really can’t go wrong.
3. Frankie Chino – I own three pairs of these pants in black, navy and sage, they are super comfy and so easy to style. It’s sweaters and loafers for Autumn/Winter, and blouses with sandals for Spring/Summer, either way you can’t go wrong. This season I’d like to add burnished coral to the collection.
4. Denim Jacket – I had my Mother’s Guess by Marciano denim jacket that she got in the 80s… I wore it everyday in high school, I lived in that thing. And when it was time to get rid of it, it was WAY past it’s prime. I have been searching for years for another suitable one (#bustygalproblems), not one that I have found thus far has fit me well. Needless to say, I’m still on the hunt.
That’s really it, I’m keeping it simple this year. The only other item I really want to pick up would be a white sundress. I am still on the hunt for one that I love. And on that note it’s time to end.
All for now,
