Dressing for Spring

BOTTON FRONT SKIRT AND NAVY SATCHEL

Button Front Denim Skirt and Navy Satchel Handbag

At this point I’ve talked about how awful this New York weather is to anyone who will listen. My co-workers, my building’s super, the lady in the checkout line of the grocery store, all of you.. it’s truly become exhausting. So I’ll spare you and instead end the week with this easy as 1,2,3 outfit.

DENIM CULOTTE JUMPSUIT

Denim Culotte Jumpsuit and Ankle Strap Heels

Denim. Culotte. Jumpsuit. Three words that honestly should not work together. But there it was wavering in my online shopping cart. Should I? Shouldn’t I? And then I went and tried the thing on. And turns out.. it does work. Magically so.

GINGHAM SHIRTDRESS IN CENTRAL PARK

Gingham Shirtdress in Central Park

There’s something fairly magical about watching the season’s change in Central Park. So on Saturday, Adam and I went to take in a bit of that magic in the late afternoon light. Since we did quite a bit of walking, I kept it comfortable in flat espadrilles and a classic shirtdress.

EASY BLUES

Old Navy Stripe Linen Dress and Coach White Sneakers

I’ve worn this striped linen dress at least once a week since I picked it up earlier this season. It’s impossibly comfortable (and it doesn’t wrinkle!) and just heavy enough weight to make it work for these cool spring mornings when paired with a light jacket.

PINSTRIPE TOP AND FAUX LEATHER MINISKIRT

Pinstripe top and faux leather mini skirt

I’ve been working these past couple of years to build a wardrobe that feels classic but not boring, modern but not dated, and largely interchangeable for day or night, work or play. All of the pieces I’m wearing meet those discerning requirements. Last Summer I often paired this pinstripe top with a pencil skirt at the office, but this past weekend I pulled it back out for a date night with a faux-leather mini skirt instead. Which I last paired with sneakers and a crewneck sweatshirt for brunch. And these elastic strap heels have been paired with everything from ripped denim to floral dresses. See what I mean?
