It Items

Tunic Time

I am a tunic fanatic and often shorten dresses and wear them over pants. When I spied this Isabel Marant linen top, I knew it warranted a collage.

After I put up the post Shopping My Closet, I decided it’s time for new sunglasses, and this Loewe raffia bag has been at the top of my spring wish list for a few months now.

Céline sunglasses, Isabel Marant top, Loewe raffia bag and large here, Ancient Greek Sandals, M.i.h Jeans.

On My Mind

Shopping My Closet

My winter coats and boots are stored and I’m pulling out warm-weather wear. Clogs are in heavy rotation again, and I love the Gucci slides so much that I bought a brown pair. The Valentino and Balenciaga dresses, now 5 and 3 years-old respectively, are two of my top spring go-tos. And the Céline hobos remain my run-around bags. It feels good that the items I’ve invested in are still beloved and, in some cases, worn daily.

Pre-Fall

The Row

The Row’s restrained and understated Pre-Fall collection is an ode to 90s minimalism. A trim turtleneck and crisp white shirt are even more chic in the hands of the Olsen sisters. And Zoe Ghertner’s pictures of Erin O’Conner are the icing on the cake.

The Best Bangles

One of the bangle bracelets in yesterday’s post is by designer Kendall Conrad—I should’ve known, she makes some of the best.

On My Inspiration Board

Apiece Apart, Jessica de Ruiter & Chanel flats

Jessica de Ruiter’s classic gold bangles (one is from Kendall Conrad), Apiece Apart’s pre-fall non-Breton striped top, and I didn’t buy into the ballet trend last year, however, these Chanel flats on Barbara Martelo could end up on my wish list.

Interview

‘Street Wise’

The Hermès dress above and Loewe below are the kind of pieces I’ve been eyeing—they are stylish but wouldn’t look dated a few years out. Like the Atlantique Ascoli dresses and tops I’ve amassed, these two items would go the distance.

All Tied Up

Gianvito Rossi Satin Sandals & Alexandre Birman Pumps

La Double J. founder J.J. Martin sent me a floor-length dress that I will shorten to mid-calf. The fab printed sheath will be perfect for a bunch of events I have this spring—I just need a sassy shoe to take it into evening.

Vogue Paris

‘India Song’

This beautiful story, shot in Jaipur by Mario Testino, is from the May issue of Vogue Paris. Anastasia Barbieri’s styling makes me yearn for a bit more glamour in my everyday life—it may be time to step up my run-around game.

Blue Collar

Whether stripedsolid, or gingham, a blue shirt is not only the perfect transition piece, it’s a year-round staple.

Valerie Leberichel, Miu Miu’s communications & external relations director, has personal style in spades—the Aurélie Bidermann ring is beyond.

Another good ring from Aurélie Bidermann (thx, KL!)
