Loving This Week: White + Gold for Spring
Monday, March 17, 2014 • Permalink •
It has been unseasonably warm here in the Bay Area, which has warm weather days on my mind. It’s really no wonder that I’ve been drawn to spring and summer whites this week, with a little metallic gold thrown in. Here’s a peek inside my online shopping cart this week…
1. Stuart Weitzman Biarritz Metallic Espadrilles, $298.00
These summery espadrilles are striking. I fell in love the minute I spotted them in the new arrivals section at Shopbop. Whoever thought to pair fancy metallic gold sheepskin leather with a traditional espadrille rope trim and rubber sole is a genius. The result is a shoe that is casual in shape, but so special in execution. These are going to be my go-to shoes for dressy-casual occasions all summer long.
2. Halston Heritage Washed Crepe Blouse, $132.00 (was $295.00)
This silk crepe blouse is a super versatile wardrobe pick. It would look great under a suit jacket, or paired with a pencil skirt, for work. I, thankfully, no longer have a job that requires daily suit wearing. So, I’d pair this sale find with jeans and pumps for a pulled together day-to-night look.
3. Loeffler Randall Grier Snakeskin-Embossed Ballet Flats, $125.99 (was $225.00)
I adore these black and white snakeskin-embossed flats. The clean black and white cap-toe look is classic and chic, perfect for spring and beyond. Plus, Loeffler Randall is known for making comfy shoes. If they were still available in my size, I’d snap them up in an instant. I’m so bummed. Hopefully a few of you readers will be able to take advantage of this amazing sale find!
4. Zara Draped T-Shirt, $25.90
This Zara find looks so posh, but is priced so incredibly low! The new arrival draped tee, which is a dead-ringer for a T by Alexander Wang creation, is available in white, black, and a khaki green shade. I think the white version will be most versatile, and show off the pretty pleating best.
5. Halston Heritage Perforated Knit Sweater, $150.50 (was $325.00)
We all know that perforated fashions of all types are huge for spring, so finding this sweater at such a great sale price right now is amazing. The pale cream color and cotton construction help to make this sweater spring-appropriate, while the perforations are so perfectly on trend. This one won’t last long on the sale rack.
