SPRING FORWARD!

SPRING FORWARD!

The other day in NYC the temperature went briefly above 40 degrees and I thought to myself, as everyone does, OMG I have nothing to wear. 

The Spring transition has always been a bit tricky for me, as Spring is not my favorite season. Give me some Autumn, or some hot steamy Summer and I can dress to the races. Spring, not so much. But I think I have finally hit my style stride and I realize I don't have to re-invent the fashion wheel every Spring. Just a few key items to spruce things up, and a really good pedicure and I am good to go.

The Jacket: Springtime mornings are of course chilly so I need a jacket and this shrunken cutie Chore Jacket from Everlane will look great with some fresh denim. Anine Bing’s super chic belted blazer worn with just a t-shirt would look amazing.

Pants: I feel like pants are making a comeback and this Spring will be less about the dress. Cargos, pajama, denim, basically anything goes. Pam loves her cargos and she just ordered these perfect Re/done Cotton-Twill Cargo Pants. This past couple seasons I have embraced the wide leg culotte in a big way and I am loving these satin pants from Vince.  I purchased these cashmere blend joggers for my girl’s trip to L.A. and have been wearing them pretty much weekly since then.

Tops: This Vince silk shell will look great with the cargos or the culottes. The Everlane Shrunken Cotton Shirt is a must-have for every wardrobe, super minimal and it happens to look great “untucked”.

Accessories: How cute is this Mansur Gavriel Mini Leather Tote! It makes me smile just to look at it, imagine how happy I would be to own it!

These low metallic red boots from Veronica Beard are super cool, and would really pop off the black frayed Slim Legion pants from our current cult fave Rachel Comey. 

If you have been following us here at TKW then you know I am obsessed with slingbacks and I never ever can buy enough. Everlane’s Editor Heel is a shoe I buy in multiples. And of course, we can't forget our trusty mules, so here’s a great version in snake print leather, with a small heel.

Ok, now I feel good about heading into Spring with these new basics.
