When I was getting ready for an event last week I came to the realization that I really didn’t own a pair of plain black shoes. I’ve been caught up in the trends lately and somewhere in between neons and bows and animal prints I forgot about the classics. My wardrobe has been missing the building blocks, so I made it my mission this weekend while I was shopping with a girlfriend to locate those closet staples. I’m happy to report I found both black ballet flats and heels — it makes we want to go back to basics with the rest of my wardrobe and invest in the classics. What are you closet staples?
Boston weather is making me a bit crazy this week — it’s freezing cold in the morning and then toasty warm by mid-day. I like to commit to a season, and I am ready for Fall. I’m already plotting my official switch from sandals and sundresses to my Fall Uniform … which pretty much consists of tights and boots with cozy dresses, and bright jeans with soft striped tees. What’s your Fall uniform?
Sometimes I don’t realize I’m having a ‘moment’ until I look back and my pinterest boards and notice a trend in my pins — from the looks of it, right now I’m in a hot pink phase. I’m eyeing this super inexpensive striped sweatshirt (it’s only $17!) and those dip-dyed earrings are a DIY with my name on them!
Is there any more quintessential pattern for Spring than gingham? This week’s 5 under $50 features ginghams of all types; I particularly think the gingham sunglasses would make a fine accessory addition to a white sundress for a warm day of brunching al fresco! Which gingham piece is your favorite?
