Friday Faves: March 2020 Edition
Ah, “Friday Favorites”. The posts I write about some of my favorite finds // a.k.a. my wish list // a.k.a. the things I’ll eventually cave and buy for myself this spring 😉
Ironically, I hardly ever have time to shop for myself, so this is it – I’ll notice pieces as I’m shopping for clients or browsing online, and keep a mental inventory of it all. The things I can’t stop thinking about make the cut!
(You can see past Friday Favorites, here.)
As the weather gets warmer, I’m a sucker for all things white, and this open weave sweater will be sweet with a pair of distressed jeans and these Steve Madden sneakers, (a fun alternative to the $500+(!) Golden Goose sneakers I won’t be buying)… In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s all about the sneakers right now. Pair them in outfits you might normally dress up, and you’ll create a youthful casualness that is right on trend.
Speaking of which, try a chunky white sneaker with this jumpsuit – or keep it dressy with a nude strappy heel. This garment is a super bargain compared to the designer version I recently found and fell in love with. I’ll wear it with a denim jacket until it’s warm enough to wear on it’s own for summer nights. Such a fun alternative to a dress!
For work and meetings, dresses are my go-to. Sometimes it works best to find basic dresses that suit your body type and make them interesting with your jewelry, shoes, and a belt (I love metallics to make things summery). Last season, I got a couple of inexpensive shirt dresses like this denim one and had them altered to fit me better, making them far more flattering and btw, pro tip: a great fit always makes your clothes look more expensive.
I’ve been flirting with the resin jewelry trend and will likely get these animal print earrings to wear with one of my solid color shirt dresses.
A client of mine got these pink pants and I can’t stop thinking about them, so, you know, they’ll probably wind up in my cart later today – especially since we are in the midst of the Banana Republic friends and family sale. Running through March 16, they are having 50% off all regular price items with no exclusions. Use code: BRFAMILY. This sale is about as good as it gets, so grab a few work basics asap! I always check out their shoes and handbags during a sale as well.
I’m also digging this paper clip-looking necklace by Bauble Bar.
Last but not least, this pretty and feminine blouse caught my eye for summer outings. It’s beautiful but I am wary of the “one size fits all”-ness of it and have reached out to my friends at Neiman Marcus for an explanation. Hit me up if you need more details on this one!
Happy (almost) spring!
