(That’s me and Vivian Mansour of Ish and Chi. She came all the way from Australia! I’ve read her for years and years and was so glad to finally meet her in person.)
I wore the Cameo Printed Dress by Ted Baker, and it is awesome. If you get close enough, you start to notice how random the print is. There are cowboys, horse-drawn carriages, pennyfarthings, and a rabbit exclaiming “AH!” when you find him.
Bonus: If you drop chocolate on your dress the second time you ever wear it and then it instantly melts and stains, the pattern is so busy you won’t even notice! Um, not that I did that or anything.
I’m still loving pink (always), and my crazy floral pumps, but I’ve also been drawn to coral and navy a lot lately. Here’s what I’ve had my eye on for spring.
So me. I really want this one.
Crepe Scalloped Hem Top
I tried this on in yellow and didn’t realize it came in navy. Navy is far superior.
I have a pair of peach glasses! If I didn’t, I’d be very tempted by these.
Fluid Henley Blouse
Fantastic color. I bought this in the floral print version (#8).
Ultra Skinny Printed Pants
I tend to have good luck with the fit of Gap pants, and these were no exception. Love the print.
Brass Chevron Necklace
I’m always a fan of pink and brass together, especially in simple, modern designs.
Floral Fluid Henley Blouse
My new favorite shirt. Looks fantastic over cropped skinnies or tucked into a pencil skirt.
I have too many striped dresses to add another, but if you’re looking, this is a good (and affordable) one.
Structured Crepe Pocket Blouse
Works better on a more boyish figure than mine, alas.
Eleanor has had some cute coats, but this tweedy yellow one (now outgrown) was my favorite. I bought it from Boden when she was still a baby, in the spring when it was on clearance, and then I saved it until it fit her. She wore it from fall to spring last year, and again this fall until it was too small.
Ladies would often compliment her on her coat, then follow up with “I wish it came in my size!” “Me too,” I would say, meaning it.
Today, I spotted the ladies’ version: Kate Spade’s Tweed Pierce Coat. No, it doesn’t come in that fantastic yellow color, but seeing as it is pink, I shall overlook that. It is spendy though. Maybe, like Eleanor’s coat, it will make it through to clearance time? (My guess is that it won’t.)
If I squint and imagine that the model wearing glasses, I can pretend it’s me. That’s totally normal, right?
p.s. Sometimes I like to play around with the formatting on these posts. It may look a little funny if you’re reading it via a feed (RSS) reader.
