spring statements


My recent busier-than-usual schedule has demanded what I call lazy dressing: an easy but fail-proof uniform of jeans, a simple top and a statement jacket. The jacket instantly adds a stylish, spring-y zest--and basically camouflages the simplicity (read: lack of effort) underneath. My go-to has been a Chloe-inspired embroidered bomber (similar to above; I also love this one). Because this topper has been such a wardrobe lifesaver, I thought I'd seek out some other options to put on repeat. Plus, I have a hunch you'd appreciate some of these possibilities, too! So far, I'm digging this peplum Rebecca Taylor, this striped Paul & Joe, this pajama-inspired Mango, this bohemian Ulla Johnson, and this patched Topshop (similar to below; also this one). In a dream world, I'd love to have the OTT Gucci, below, but I'd also settle for this one!

Do you know who makes the last jacket? The floral bomber?

Sorry to comment here about an unrelated subject - but...

I desperately needed a slip to go under a summer dress for a wedding - WHERE HAVE ALL THE SLIPS GONE?!

I went to Nordstrom and although there were bras/panties galore and tons of "shapeware" (a subject you should also address) I was dumbfounded by the complete lack of slips.

Where would you start to look for a well finished slip? (not a bodycon version)

The coral jacket is really impressive. It makes perfect combination with light blue denim. I love this authentic pattern, it feels a little gypsy

Love the full length, flare bell sleeve blue top in the first photo? Where can I find it? Closest I found was:
