FIRST LOOK: I saw this pin by Anthropologie and immediately thought, “Yessss.” I have come to realize I don’t like shorts, though I love shorts weather. I think I’ve always hated them, but tried again and again each spring and summer to find a pair that I could live in. Now that Easter has passed, I can officially start thinking of a warmer-weather wardrobe. I know I will be pulling inspiration from this blouse and skirt combo like crazy!
SECOND LOOK: Even during muggy Missouri summers, I sport jeans. Partly because I don’t want to blind everyone with how pale I am. I adore this classic look by Caroline of House of Harper. She describes the look as airport style, but I know a nice white blouse and little loafers would translate as the perfect May uniform for me. Especially for Alaska as it can still get chilly in the evenings, that cape is a must!
What looks are you inspired by this spring?
These orange border shams (Euro, Boudoir) by Biscuit are made in the USA! Book-lovers are sure to love a Penguin mug for their morning coffee or tea; I know I would! This Longchamp travel bag has stayed in my mind since seeing it in an old issue of Domino. Orange is so chic in leather! This diary would pair nicely with the brown interior of my Louis Vuitton, don’t you think? A little jewelry case that is both sweet and functional…wouldn’t mind popping it into my luggage as I pack this week. Orange and black that doesn’t feel like Halloween for once, this lacquer box would be happy on a stack of coffee table books I’m sure. A vintage Hermès scarf box…perfect for papers, treasures, or corralling desk accessories.
Happy Easter, friends! Ethan and I enjoyed a lovely spring weekend, one including fresh haircuts, new books, open windows, and even some Asian food (our favorite). On Sunday I baked a special quiche and served it with ham and rolls for just the two of us.
In just one week I’ll be on my way home for the wedding, can you believe it?
Here is my sister’s wedding website that I helped her with so many months ago.
What are you looking forward to as April winds down?
