With our trip to Paris just ten days away, I have been doing quite a bit of shopping online. I know we will likely be out, walking most of the day, so flat sandals, cool linen dresses, and breezy tops are a must, while chic pieces are a must for dinners out. Overall, the idea is to pack things that are versatile and will work in a variety of ways as well as those that are comfortable for long days spent exploring the meandering streets of Paris. And of course, it goes without saying, the goal is to select things that feel effortless and chic. What are you currently craving?
I just got back from High Point and I am currently feeling inspired by the use of color. There were lots of pretty shades of blue, green, and pink all over market. I’ll share some of my favorite finds from market later this week. In the meantime, I am thrilled to have come home to gorgeous weather after the cold and stormy weather in North Carolina. As such, I am thinking about pretty, feminine silhouettes for dresses and blouses, chic sandals, and colorful accessories to add a little punch. I am bookmarking a ton of these items for upcoming speaking engagements, trips, and shoots! What are you lusting after this month?
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 is on Monday, March 20th, which will also be Tate’s 8th 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.
The weather in Houston has been absolutely beautiful this week– sunny and warm. Everything has started to bloom early. It seems our plants are confused and think spring is really here. Our wisteria and jasmine are so lush and verdant right now and our azaleas are already beginning to bloom. Like my plants, I am also ready for spring thanks to the lovely, temperate temperatures and sunny days we have been experiencing. I mentioned last month that I have been wanting to purge my closet and I still have the urge to do so. Most of my clothes and shoes are pretty classic, but there are plenty of things in there that I haven’t worn in ages and it seems like at any given time, I only wear about 25% of what I own. Does this happen to you, too? This month, I have my eye on plenty of things that I’d like to see make their way into my closet!
This week, I’ve been going through one of those dreaded slumps during which I hate just about everything in my closet. With the exception of some favorites, I kind of just want to start over. I say this mostly in jest, but I am sure you can relate. I know we all go through this a few times a year! With that said, I have some updated classics on my lust list this month– pretty blouses with feminine details, chic denim silhouettes, stylish sweaters and jackets, and great shoes and accessories. What are you currently lusting after!
