This is the week I remind you that we post the seasonal trends not just so you can focus on what to purchase, but also what you might already have in your closet. I think it is good practice each season to find a few trends to embrace which you already own, and maybe one that you do not. For instance, dressy platforms remind me of my freshman year of college at Parsons in a good way. Unlike say, chokers, which remind me of high school and make me cringe so badly I can’t even put them on the blog. I’m remembering the fabulous pair of Marc Fisher platforms I purchased at the end of last season. I may just pull them out of my spring shoe bin and start wearing them around the house! So thankful these days for my mink sport slides from Reich furs, aka The Fur Boss!
Ok so you are probably not wearing a taffetta skirt anytime soon, but the Bene t-shirt dress in the widget below, now 25% off at Nordstrom, would be fabulous to wear around the house or walks around the block this spring. We will try to add more casual options as the weeks go by!
Black and White
Black and White is the perfect example of a trend you already have in your closet but could now put together with intention to give yourself a boost of confidence. I love how the woman below has ginormous green earrings on with her black and white look. Add some colorful earrings, a necklace, scarf, or lipstick for your video calls. Now is also a great time to nab the 1901 sweater blazer from Nordstrom.
Who doesn’t love a good platform? The best buy in the widget below is the Clark’s tan suede crossover platform. It goes from work to weekend, is good quality, and super comfortable.
