For some reason every autumn I can’t wait to pull out my old favorites, and every spring I can’t wait to buy new clothing. Perhaps it’s because so much of the cold weather months’ fashion choices are geared towards practicality over posturing. Or, maybe it’s just because with “spring fever” comes a certain desire for newness.
Or, maybe it’s just because it’s tax return season.
Regardless, after doing a superb job of not shopping during autumn and winter, I am ready to shop, people.
It should come as no surprise that even though the weather is changing I’m going to still wear predominately black. However, I want to switch it up and incorporate lighter textures and different silhouettes.
As far as accessories go, I’ve been looking for the perfect oversized western belt. I was watching season 2 of Melrose Place (yes, from like 1994) a few months ago and this one character Jo had the coolest all black look accented by a thick black leather belt with an oversized western buckle.
Also, it’s no secret I’m a huge fan of corsets, so the corset belt trend is a great way to incorporate the look into an outfit without actually lacing up.
Of course, no look is complete without he finishing touches! I am loving this Julie Vos cuff and these chandelier earrings for a touch of drama! Plus, how sophisticated is this Henri Bendel mini bag? Swoon.
What are you most looking forward to buying this season? Let me know in the comments below!
