For the past few months I have been focused on really defining my style and discovering what clothes make me feel the most confident and at ease. I found the more I concentrated on what I already owned, the less I felt I needed to shop for more. Instead I have been reworking what I have, and whittling my clothes down to a very streamlined 50 items. As autumn approaches, I'm beginning to feel dreamy about updating my wardrobe again.
I tend to suit hats rather well yet I've never owned one; I'd really love a cute boater for shading myself in the summer but since this season is quickly disappearing, I'm considering whether there is room in my wardrobe for a different type. The bolero style looks smart yet versatile; I just need to find a non-wool alternative to this Janessa Leone one, suggestions?
Everlane launched their new range of shoes recently, The Modern Oxford, with a tapered toe, slight heel, and a style that is smart yet comfortable. I was lucky to win a pair in their Instagram giveaway, and the shoes are on their way right now! I went for the classic goes-with-everything black; such a great staple pair of shoes to own and I'm super excited to get them in my wardrobe.
Elizabeth Suzann is one of those brands where I want to own everything. Each piece is well-designed and made to last, the style is always practical, elegant, and comfortable. I was kindly gifted the Diane Trench a few weeks back and it has become a staple piece I wear daily when the weather permits. I know the price tag of the Birdie Caftan is well worth it, I'm just building up the courage to hit buy now.
I've been hunting all over for a pair of all-metal, round frames and these by Garrett Leight are exactly the sort of thing I'm after. Sleek, minimal, and a little bookish; I love the brushed finish and how lightweight they would feel. I'm debating whether to switch back to contact lenses (it's always good to have the option between lenses and frames) so I'm holding off on making a purchase for now.
