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.
Saint Laurent shirt, Valentino bag, Saint Laurent blazer, Tod’s loafers, The Elder Statesman blanket scarf, Acne jeans.

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.
I love the fun tops in this April Vogue Paris story– I am so ready to put away my turtleneck sweaters.

Ad Campaign Film
Handbag designer Agnes Baddoo told me about this charming film on the Jigsaw site– enjoy!
The adorable actress Leonora is somehow related to Priscilla Woolworth, an early kic profile…
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.
Stutterheim raincoats and here, Kule striped top, Frame jeans, Sorel booties.
Book Review on Disneyrollergirl
Fellow blogger Navaz Batliwalla, editor of the fab site Disneyrollergirl (and author of The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman, my favorite style guide, ever), did a fantastic post on Agnès b’s new book, Styliste.
The Wall Street Journal
The corset is everywhere and my onetime Vogue co-worker Anne Slowey wrote a funny and thoughtful piece on it’s comeback for The Wall Street Journal.
Isabel Marant corset belt
When I spied this raffia and leather Hammock bag by Loewe my heart skipped a beat– so chic.
Also available here in small and large.
Amber Valletta looks fantastic in this story from The Telegraph. I want to copy how Teddy Charles did her hair–so simple and chic.

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.
