Although I’m in “prepping for travel” mode, I wanted to share a few good things for the season that have crossed my path lately.
Above, I picked up this jacket in black a few weeks ago, and have been wearing it quite a bit recently. (You’ll see it tomorrow in an outfit post.) I’ve just ordered one in light grey as a non-black jacket option. Don’t let the double-breasted styling scare you off; worn open it’s actually quite flattering with the deep, collarless v-neck. The fabric drapes well and passes my “scrunch” test for wrinkle-resistance, so it’s a contender for my travel wardrobe.
Also under consideration for the travel wardrobe, this linen/rayon shirt with a sailboat print. It’s interesting enough to wear on its own, but also soft and lightweight enough to layer underneath a sweater.
If your style leans a little more boho but you don’t like crisp fabrics, here’s a nice soft tee with fun embroidery. (Also available in red.)
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I liked my white sneakers so much that I bought a pair in this pewter metallic. (Think I’m going to replace those white laces with some dark grey ones, though.) Now just trying to decide which color (white or metallic) will be going into the suitcase…
Trying to find comfortable shoes that will go from day to dinner and that aren’t black is always a challenge. A slightly pointed toe and subtle metallic finish makes these loafers a refined yet relaxed choice. Yes, they’re from Paul Green so are very comfortable! (Go ½ size down from your usual PG size…these run large.)
And finally, a bit of whimsy. I saw a woman carrying this bag a few days ago, and had to find out what it was. It has such a Jane Birkin-esque vibe. It’s on the smaller side, but has both a top handle and crossbody strap. Adorable!
Have you added any fun Spring or Summer pieces to your wardrobe lately?
