Monday Morning Must-Haves

This post is actually more like the start of a fall wish list; I’m considering a couple of pieces that would update my wardrobe next season.  A blouse and Mary-Janes top that list. Beautifully cut trousers and a cashmere poncho are staples that I can never have enough of—they are the foundation items that anchor the more fashion-forward purchases.

Poncho, Gucci blouseSaint Laurent pants, Prada Mary-Janes (when I find a link, I’ll put it up).

  • I have a black cashmere poncho that I bought years ago in NYC at Searle I never tire of it! It’s perfect for fall and spring.

  • I really like each piece, but the poncho just got ordered. Circling back to an earlier post, I just saw something similar on a woman at the airport and noted how stylish and practical her poncho was. She especially looked smartly dressed among the sea of maxi dresses I kept noticing! I think I’ve been completely turned off from the maxi dress. I think they should be reserved for poolside cocktail parties or lounging around one’s house, but look ridiculous slogging along through an airport. But back to the poncho- it looked great in the wild.

  • I have never worn Saint Laurent pants and am curious to know if they offer a particularly good fit? It seems to be one of the few brands that offers classic cut pants year after year. I would like to give them a try.

  • I love the poncho…I think I have a grey cashmere poncho put away…I’ll have to locate that!
