The Clasp Bag, Cont.

After seeing a number of show-goers carrying the Céline Clasp bag, I decided to pop into the shop and take a look at it. There’s no denying that it is lovely.

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.
