Minor Obsessions

I feel like I’m finally coming out of my winter funk.  The days are longer and our calendar is starting to fill up with some fun social events.  For the past few months, I’ve been on a self-imposed shopping hiatus, but all that’s about to change this weekend.  Of course, I’m not including my own site in my shopping freeze, I tend to delve into zhush.com, almost weekly ~ these new to the site sparklers being my latest obsession.  As for warm weather dressing,  I’ve found some pieces that have got me fired up for shopping (and more importantly, trying on…ugh).  Over a year ago, I bought two of the same tops by DVF in different colors (the cut was perfect and I knew I’d wear them everywhere) and sure enough they fast became my go to favorites. Now, I’m hoping to score again with these updated but equally flattering tops.  Perusing my own closet for basics that have stood the test of time, inspired me to try a classic Essie shade that was close to my own manicure “wheel-house” of Ballet Slippers and Mademoiselle. I’m pleased to say that Sheer Bliss will be my pink of choice these days.  I shy away from busy prints and brights on clothes, but I love to incorporate them into my overall look with accessories, like this fab (and very affordable scarf) and this chic leather pouch.  Can you ever really have enough black strappy sandals? These are great for that tricky mid-dressing zone, you know, somewhere between dressed to the nines and everyday casual. Stripes are still going strong and this subtle pinstripe on these capri pants seem like just the right thing to elevate a basic black top to a full on outfit.  Now all that’s missing is the warm temps…
