I love, love, love this outfit in Glamour, but my budget can’t quite afford Sacai at the moment, so time for a budget friendly remake…
So remember those red shoes I wore a while back with the gray tights? Today I’m wearing them open-toed and, boy, it feels good! Spring (and warmth!) is in the air. What’s your spring outfit of choice?
On my way home today, the woman in the car next to me at an intersection was wearing a green sweater with a yellow scraf. It caught my attention and she looked very spring-y. It was a classic style-spark.
And when I got home and checked the mail I noticed this photo on the back of the new Crate & Barrel catalog… something about it just made me feel happy. Maybe it was a glimpse of the nice weather that’s not too far around the corner, or maybe it was the colors.
Being sick isn’t all bad I guess. While I was sick one my friends sent me and my (also sick) daughter along a couple very cute get-well gifts – a skater-girl skirt for Landry and a rocker-girl coffee sleeve for me. Both came from a company called Applesauce Apparel and both are made from recycled materials. Applesauce makes mainly kids clothes, so if you’ve got little ones, check out their shop on Etsy! Thanks, Jamie for sending a couple of sparks over to our otherwise not-so-sparky house.
Today I stepped out of my fashion comfort zone. The decision: Unsafe, red, open-toe shoes with gray tights or safe, standby, black heels? I had on one of each and said to myself, “No, you need to push yourself, wear the red shoes.” So, I did. I am proud of myself. Next time, the red shoes won’t be so scary.
Have you stepped out of your comfort zone lately and worn something new? I’d love to hear about it (and see pics if you’ve got ’em)!
L’Wren Scott’s collection is gorgeous.
Love the boots in the J. Mendel look above.
Nanette Lepore was one of my favorites. There were lots of great everyday styling ideas in her collection, I thought.
