Transitioning into Spring

We are heading into blazer weather. Paired with a white shirt, Breton striped top, or light-weight turtleneck, a blazer is a timeless wardrobe staple and the perfect transition piece (think Emmanuelle Alt and Charlotte Casiraghi).  As a horseback riding family, we have no shortage of navy jackets on hand. On cool mornings I top off with a cashmere wrap then stow it away when the temp rises during the day. The top-handle bag updates this classic look.

An Easy Dress

This Tibi dress (and here) looks like it could be a forever piece in my wardrobe– it’s good in white, too. I’d close the side slits and shorten to my knee.

Rainy Run-Around

The good news is that the temps are on the rise, the bad news is that rain is forecast for 5 of the next 10 days– oh well.  There are tons of great trench coats available right now, but when I’m running errands and in and out of the car, I prefer a shorter jacket. Stockholm-based Stutterheim raincoats are just the ticket.

Totes

Oversized bags were all over the runways and this Balenciaga tote (the small version and here is adorable, too) would up the cool factor considerably.
