it’s time to go back to the basics today. wardrobe basics, that is. first up, a summer wardrobe staple, the mighty white blazer. y’all know my love for blazers runs deep. even in the dog days of summer, i’m bound to reach for a blazer or cardigan to ward off those frigid indoor temps. yes, the weather outside might register one hundred degrees in the shade but inside? the thermometer sometimes dips into the sixties. brrrrr. i don’t know about you, but when it’s that hot, i’m dipping my toes in the water, or i’m indoors staying cool. as we inch closer to memorial day, it’s time to get serious about summer clothes. whites and brights are what i reach for these days to give my wardrobe that spring/summer touch. a white blazer is a basic that just pulls a summer outfit together with ease and panache. a white blazer in linen or cotton is my go-to when i need to add a bit of sophistication to any outfit.
the bathroom renovation is plugging along with a completion date of 5.12! hip, hip, hooray. it’s looking pretty fab if i do say so myself. it’s still one of the smallest bathrooms i’ve had the pleasure of setting up shop, but it will be a beauty. and so functional with all of the built-in storage. can’t wait to share with you! t-minus seven and counting…
whenever i’m in doubt as to what to wear, i always reach for the basics. a summery white linen blazer from Talbots is just the ticket when i want to add subtle sophistication to an outfit. the past year many of us have lived in loungewear, but it’s time to ditch the sweatpants in favor of joggers. i’ve been a fan of these comfy but chic pants for quite some time. in fact, these black joggers (old, similar here and here) from Ralph Lauren are three to four years old. they look fantastic with a simple tee, denim jacket, or linen blazer. don’t you just love a versatile item? since black and white are always all right, i decided to wear a white tee. and just to add a little fun to this easy breezy outfit, i chose block heel gingham sandals (old, similar here and here) from Ann Taylor. yes, i love to trot out wicker and straw handbags this time of year, but i still count on leather handbags for the heavy lifting. but i do look for features like bamboo handles or summery hues of pink or orange that set them apart from their fall/winter counterparts.
