Now that Easter has come and gone, I’m actually in a spring state of mind. I’m ready to shed the layers, burn my tights, wear short skirts — you get the idea. The fact that Shopbop is having yet anothersale (enter code spring25 for 25% off your order) only means that it’s fate. Time for me to pick out those key pieces that’ll take me from spring to summer.
I personally love 3.1 Phillip Lim accessories and have had my eye on “Gorge” 31 Second Pouch for quite some time. It’s super small and chic – the perfect evening out clutch to carry the essentials but still love fun. I hate pieces that take themselves too seriously.
Ahh the Pashli. I love mine (so much so that I purchased TWO last year from Shopbop). I’ve put myself on a no bag buying ban and it hurts so much. This color (White Peach) is so precious! Then there’s the Alexander Wang Rockie in Air Force which makes me want to scream inside it’s so beautiful. http://bit.ly/1FhXIh5 I have it in a pretty pale pink hue that’s perfect for spring but if you’re in the market for a small bag that can carry a ton – this is it!
Lastly I’m on a jumpsuit kick and just discovered the label findersKEEPERS. It’s an Australian company that creates feminine pieces that are alluring and sexy without trying too hard. I went back and forth between the three jumpsuits pictured but decided on the Here We Go Jumpsuit in white since I love that color against my skin tone. Who knows – the Shop sale lasts for three days so I have just enough time to snap up another one (as long as they don’t sell out!)

You’ve for sure seen this video already but I can’t stop watching it after having seen it at the New York premiere. Stuart Weitzman debuted their newest fashion film called “Made for Walking” starring Kate Moss, the face of the brand’s Fall 2013 campaign.
Shot in central London, Moss sets loose from a traffic jam (something I’ve contemplated doing time and time again) and walks to her destination with Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made for Walking” playing in the background because, duh. For their Fall 2013 collection, Stuart Weitzman unveiled a new collection boots – as seen in the video – that are comfortable and stylish (even if you’re left staring at your closet wondering how to pull off thigh high boots). This fall the brand is also celebrating 20 years with their classic over the knee, 5050 boot. Huzzah!
If you’re feelin’ lucky, enter the #MadeForWalking contest where you can enter to win some amazing prizes like a $750 gift card or a two night trip to New York City, a champagne tour of the Stuart Weitzman showroom and $1500 shoe wardrobe.
FTC Disclosure: I attended the press preview and received a pair of boots as a thank you.
There are several things that I must bring to your attention from the photo above:
My new growth is something wicked. I relaxed my hair last month yet SOMEHOW I’m already seeing new growth and curly roots. No one told me just how high maintenance short, relaxed hair would be when I chopped it all off
They’re not mine – I stole them from Sarah for about 30 minutes after falling in love and demanding that she hand them over. They’re the Kennedy: Clear by Grey Ant and I’m in love. I want/ need them in my lifestyle and I’m contemplating bribery. Sarah, are you listening? A quick browse on their website also led me to wanting/needing the Status: Tortoise sunglasses as well because I love an exaggerated anything and do you see the size of those things?!
On a rare off day, I ventured on down to meet up with the SKAGEN DENMARK team to take a gander at what’s new for spring and what to expect for autumn.
Skagen Denmark – men’s
For the uninitiated, SKAGEN DENMARK is a Danish lifestyle brand that offers high quality products at an affordable price point. You probably know them for their watches – simple yet refined. They’re classic pieces that aren’t definied by trends while at the same time remaining quite modern. While they may be known for watches, I fell head over heels over the jewelry collection.
For Autumn/Winter 2013, the brand’s Perspektiv collection features a new take on Danish design through flawless, delicate details and innovative materials. Gorgeous pendants that have a hint of sparkle when it hits the light allow for interchangeable necklaces (you pick between a soft leather or steel chain. Along with the pendants were beautiful rose gold rings which – admittedly – captured my heart and will be mine come Fall.
As with jewelry, the women’s Perspektiv watch collection is pretty neat and consists of high-quality genuine leather straps in pebble grey, dark brown, camel and burgundy. The watches are slim but not too delicate. The Klassik collection (the watches you see above towards the left) are just that – classic pieces by the brand.
