My practical self will soon be listing the key wardrobe pieces I want to add for Spring/Summer. They’ll no doubt include a full ivory skirt, floral blouse, open-toe mid-heels and a new scarf or two. Pieces that will work with the rest of my closet, extend my wardrobe, and not break the budget.
And here are a few Spring items that make my fashion heart sing. Tim Gunn talks about “soul-stirring” pieces that every woman should have, and here are a couple that stir me, from the current Anthropologie catalog:
|The necklace is too big for me, but I love, love this ruffled striped
tee and embroidered skirt ($148). Could it also be her magnificent curly
hair drawing me in??
|A theme emerges! Breton tee and fabulous paisley skirt ($128)|
|OK, I get it now: tee, gorgeous embellished skirt ($148) and denim jacket ($128)|
|How lovely is this emerald skirt ($118) and drapey checked top ($68)? Again,
the gorgeous antique tiles could be part of the charm . . .
|Love the soft colors and patterns on this tunic ($148).|
While I’d love to own these, I wouldn’t normally spend these amounts for single pieces (although the drapey checked top might have to come to my house). I have to bulk up my NYC travel fund, and I am committed to buying more ethically this year. And I realize these skirts, especially, are so memorable I wouldn’t want to wear them twice a week. So the cost-per-wear would get ridiculous. And etc.
I will use these images as my inspiration board when thrifting, and browsing eBay and Etsy. I’ll have fun with colorful scarves and jewelry. I might pop for a truly fun, soul-stirring pair of shoes like these, ’cause a woman has got to have a great shoe:
|Liquid by Cydwoq, my new favorite shoe brand. I could wear these every day.|
See anything here you like? Too fussy/romantic for your style? Got a dreamy piece for Spring that you’re hoping to invite home? Love to hear what you think!
