Part I of the spring/summer shopping revue.
. . .
Bond girl in the winter months, and Bardot-meets-70s-Ibizia by spring and summer. It’s amazing what an extra hour of Vitamin D can do for the soul. And the skin; caramel macchiato tan, here I come.
For a while now I’ve been hunting for the perfect denim jacket. Too blue. Too dark. Too cropped. Too nineties. I promise you I’m not that high maintenance in reality; I’m just a girl with, for better or for worse, perfectionist tendencies.
I found it. At H&M, no less, from their Divided line for Spring 2012. A light, slightly distressed wash with rose gold buttons and cinched detailing at the back. It hits just above the hip bones – the perfect length for pants or dresses without cutting me off. Worn cuffed always; I haven’t stopped wearing it.
Classic white tee made trendy with a sheer fabric and high-low hemline.
Another favorite spring find – a pastel peach blouse from Forever 21. A sheer, button-down vest top reminiscent of something Marilyn or Brigitte Bardot would wear over a cream balconette bra or bikini, tied nonchalantly about the hips. Just the slightest hint of skin – leave them guessing.
Ignore the wrinkles if you must. I think they give a shirt character. I hate when things look new for a specific outfit. So pretentious, methinks.
