Need I say more? The temps have barely started to dip below 80 (we did have a nice breezy week recently), but I'm already sporting my favorite leather jacket (and sweating), cycling through my booties (and sweating), and even approaching long-sleeve button-down territory (and sweating). Alright, so it's a bit premature, but what's a little bit of sweat compared to a new season of sartorial opportunities?
Clearly, I have a bit of a thing this season for white knit tops and nude/tan mule sandals. But if it ain't broke, why fix it, right? In an attempt to inject some colors and prints into my wardrobe, I'm mixing them in with accessories and add-ons, like lightweight blazers and even more silk neck scarves. Mixing prints may not be the trend du jour this season, but some subtle print-mixing can go a long way in injecting some fun into my usual minimalistic, simple wears for Spring.
While my Summer wishlist includes fun gingham prints, colorful embroidery, and lots of millennial pink, when push comes to shove, lately, Spring outfits have been fairly minimalist. Maybe I'm just getting old (I mean, 25 is practically ancient, right?), but this season, stylish comfort has become a much larger priority to me. Luckily, some of this season's biggest trends are super comfortable. To my surprise, culottes are still going strong, and I'm preferring this season's more relaxed take instead of last summer's stiff denim versions with a very pronounced flare. These lightweight trousers from Aritzia are comfortable, flattering, and so easy to move in. I always love a nice knit crop top, and this structured version (also from Aritzia) is a simple complement to the statement-making pants. I finally got my hands on (or feet in) a pair of simple tan mule sandals, which are perfect for running around in all day without killing my feet. All in all, it's a pretty effortless look that's great for wearing all day long without the strong desire to rip it from one's body and replace it with pajamas immediately upon returning home. It seems like designers are finally appreciating the positive impact that comfortable (but fashionable) clothing can have on a person. Shop the look below!
As I ready my wardrobe for the inevitable heat wave to hit, I'm looking for fun, upbeat pieces to inject some serious life into my neutral-heavy winter-focused wardrobe. Some fun slides, lots of blush pink, embellished jeans, gingham prints, and statement accessories are just a few of the necessities on my Summer 2017 wishlist. I'm also hoping to update my beauty routine with some lightweight scents, like the iconic Santal from Le Labo, and glow-inducing skincare products, like Sunday Riley's Good Genes treatment.
