The Love List: Late Spring

 

I figure every couple months I’ll be inspired and perhaps post something. Or maybe I’ll post more frequently. Anyway, after a couple of months without buying clothing–mainly because I wasn’t really in love with anything, I suddenly had to have ALL THE CLOTHES. Isn’t it funny how one second you can decide to never buy anything again and the next second you’re debating moving so you can have more closets? I know these are ‘late spring’ looks and soon it will be 95 degrees and we’ll all be dying a slow death, but a lot of these can transition to summer.

  1. Madewell Cold Shoulder Shirt: When this whole cold shoulder trend came out, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. Then I saw it on enough people that I was like yup…I have to have it. While this shirt is long sleeve, I actually wore this on a day that was 85 with shorts on a day that we went to Brooklyn and I felt amazing–probably because it’s made out of linen.
  2. Uniqlo Legging Pants: I know the trend is bell bottoms and stuff, but I feel like those cuts kind of overwhelm my short little legs. Also, these are basically leggings with back pockets–i.e. the dream! I’ve worn these to work before {the black ones}.
  3. Uniqlo Bomber Jacket: This is the perfect spring jacket. A little bit warm for those blustery days, but still lightweight, can be dressed up and down, and can take a little rain. This comes in matte and one with a little sheen. I opted for the olive, which feels neutral, but stands out a little.
  4. Vans Slim Sk8 Zip Hi-Tops: These are actually in leather, which makes them a little more polished than the canvas hi-tops. I got these in the black and gold version, but the lighter colors are great for spring/summer. Just a warning–these take a couple wears to break in the leather, but now they’re super comfortable!
  5. Madewell Headliner Sunglasses: While everyone has Raybans, the Wayfarers are way too narrow for my wide round face. They look ridiculous–I’ve tried. I love these, especially because of the reflective lenses. These are that Wayfarer shape, but actually fit my face without being absurdly large. Plus they’re a nice thick tortoise, but not so heavy that they ¬†hurt my face.
  6. Madewell Button Back Plaid Shirt: You can’t see it in this picture, but there’s buttons going down the back. This shirt is also made of linen, so it’s light and airy for summer, but can be warn with a light jacket {see number 3} for those cooler days. The tie front is also something fun and unexpected.

The Love List: Summer Edition

Summer 2016

Obviously doing things I like monthly is just not working at all. So I decided to throw together a little list of things I’ve really been digging this summer. And this works out because it’s still summer! I know that it’s Labor Day weekend, but why let that keep you down!¬†Also one of the many great things about moving to NYC is the fact that it remains warm for weeks after Labor Day. Continue reading
