August Ravello – Rose gold
Water-resistant short hooded trench – khaki
Flutter Sleeve Top – Dusty pink
I remarked how much I was looking forward to warmer weather as the fiance and I were walking home from brunch last week. The cold weather has me longing for the Spring 2017 lines. As soon as we returned to the apartment, I browsed my favorite online stores to get a jump start on seasonal wardrobe updates.
If we are being honest, I got a jump on shopping the day after Christmas when this pink and white stripe top caught my eye. It is just as dreamy as person. Rather than a poplin fabric, which it was I was expecting, I was pleasantly surprised that it is made of a cotton oxford fabric. The best part is that this top comes in tall.
Lately, I have gravitated toward bohemian-style pieces. (Cut to all of the tunics and caftans I accumulated last summer.) The blue tie-dye tunic is exactly what I have been craving for the past few months, as it combines my current favorite print with my current favorite silhouette. I cannot wait to wear it this spring for casual Fridays. This brand has not yet expanded into tall sizing, but in my experience tops in this line already run long.
I have been on the lookout for a pair of ankle length skinny white destroyed denim. These are exactly what I was hoping to find. I think they will look great with either the blue tie-dye tunic or the pink and white stripe top.
I am obsessed with this blue and white dress. The blue and white stripes remind me of the classiness of a bankers stripe button up. Once we hit spring and past opaque tights weather, this 100% cotton style is going to feel like heaven. This dress comes in tall – praise the Lord!
Top three selling points about the khaki short trench – 1) It would be perfect over every other piece from this post. 2) It comes in tall. 3) It is water resistant with a hood; perfect for being prepared for spring showers! Do you need anything else? No, I don’t think so.
The accessories are arguably my favorite pieces in this post. The statement necklace and statement earrings go together without being too matchy-matchy. The clutch is rose gold and spring is the perfect season to break the shade out after a cold winter. I love rose gold so much that I bought it in the same style as the yellow gold cuff and I cannot wait to stack them. Lastly, I feel like we should discuss the headband, and headbands in general. A polarizing topic, I was planning on polling this topic soon on my Twitter, but I am just going to put it out there that I love this accessory especially in unconventional and upscale materials and fabrics. Thoughts on the Blair Waldorf essential?
