Transitioning to Spring

My first outfit post.  By the way, I think I could get used to this – having an excuse for a manicure & a pedicure (it’s still 40 degrees around here) in the name of sharing favorites from my closet!

I love how a floral spring scarf can take any outfit into spring. Vera scarf (similar lightweight pretty scarves here), Old Navy top (similar), suede wedge boots (old) similar, Tory Burch 56 mm Cat Eye sunglasses (Nordstrom), and Gucci bag (see below)

This Gucci patent leather bag is one of my all-time favorites!  It is not available anymore but there are several online consignment shops selling it, (search “Gucci Patent Leather D Ring Large Hobo”). I hesitate to include a link since I haven’t actually used any of them, but if you do your homework and don’t mind pre-owned, it’s a steal at $400-$600.  Not only is it beautiful, but it is luxuriously soft and light. Perfect for fall and winter (I live in Seattle, so it’s perfect for the rain) but also can be sleek for spring…and in the summer it finishes a black/white ensemble beautifully. If I find something close to it, I will let you know. In the meantime, here is a Michael Kors bag that I have been eyeing.

By the way, the Tory Burch glasses above are my favorite sunglasses.  I haven’t found an outfit that they don’t look good with.  These cat eyes from Tory Burch will look good on just about every face shape (am I being over optimistic? let me know if I’m wrong). I purchased this pair from Nordstrom after falling in love with them at the counter, but it looks like they are available on Amazon for $50 less.

Swapping the boots out for some nude wedges (similar) along with white jeans (Banana Republic, old, similar), Tory Burch 60 mm Aviators, and the iconic Louis Vuitton Alma or other classic structured handbag:

I purchased this photo session almost two years ago from Aderyn Photography at an auction benefiting a great organization, ACRS.  Big thanks to Aderyn not only for donating to a good cause but for honoring my purchase almost 2 years later (life got hectic..) and for taking some great pictures!
