I know that several parts of the country have been dealing with winter weather this week, but spring is so close that I can just taste it! In fact, the first day of spring was yesterday, which also happened to be Tate’s 9th birthday. As always, I am currently loving updated classics in a palette of black, white, camel, and navy. This month’s list is filled with style staples and pieces with feminine details as well as some great jewelry to dress up any look along with pieces to get you through the transition period if you live in a part of the country with real seasons. That being said, it was 80 degrees in Houston last week and this week it’s been significantly cooler, so it always helps to have great layering pieces.
It seems that the weather is currently all over the place. Not only have there been major dips and spikes in the temperature in Houston, but when I flew to New York earlier this week, it was seventy five degrees in Houston and there was still snow on the ground in New York after the winter storm they had over the weekend. Considering I was only there for one night and only packed a carry-on, the huge difference in temperature made packing a little tricky. I have a lot of travel coming up this year between various work engagements and then this fall, with my book tour, so I am currently looking for chic pieces that work in a variety of climates, travel well, and can go from day to night. You’ll find that this month’s Lust List is filled with timeless neutrals, chic silhouettes, as well as plenty of tiequite a few workhorse pieces that are ideal for traveling. I find that a great jacket is a must when flying since airplanes can get pretty chilly and I know that I will look pulled together when I land in case I have to go directly to a meeting once I arrive.
Can you believe how cold it is? The weather in Atlanta was brutal while we were there this weekend. The temperatures were in the 20s, but with the wind chill, the news said it felt like 7 degrees. It was brutal! Houston just got a big cold front and a “winter storm” yesterday. The roads are iced over and we’ve had some sleet and snow. I’m sure it seems like child’s play to our friends in other parts of the country who experience real winters, but Houstonians can’t handle it, so the city just shuts down essentially. I love winter clothes, but I am ready for milder temperatures! As a result, this month’s Lust List is filled with cozy warm weather staples like coats and a few great jackets, but you’ll find some fabulous transitional pieces as well for those living in milder climates or who are planning to travel to slightly warmer locales. You’ll notice there are quite a few chic bags on my list this month. It wasn’t intentional, but there are so many fun new designs that I have recently came across. What are you in the mood for this month? Are you relishing winter or are you also dreaming of warmer temperatures and an escape to someplace sunny and warm?
I am totally guilty of shopping for myself as I’ve bought gifts for everyone on my list this year. One for you, one for me! I am going through a phase where I feel like I have nothing to wear and desperately need to clean out my closet yet again. Does this happen to you? I keep mostly timeless classics in my closet and wear clothes in a mostly neutral palette, but every now and then, I feel like I need a closet revamp. I also have to share a closet with my husband in our new house, which isn’t ideal, so I am hoping to have a closet expert come in and reconfigure our situation in order to help us maximize our space and stay organized. Hopefully, that will help me make room for some new pieces from this month’s lust list!
After being in New York, Paris, and High Point, NC over the course of the past few weeks, I have finally gotten a taste of fall and am ready for some chic, new pieces to add to my fall wardrobe. This month, I am craving pretty blouses, cozy sweaters, structured bags, stylish boots and flats, and great jackets that work year-round. With so many items on my wish list this month, it’s probably a good thing that my birthday is only a couple of weeks away!
