Time to Hit the Refresh Button

With spring just around the corner, I did a little scouting for you . . . to find a few cotton jackets and blouses while they are still in stock. And then I threw in a couple of scarves and a bag.
Here’s what I found:

Bailey 44 Trojan Striped Jacket
Bailey 44 Trojan Striped Jacket from Saks; I’d been hoping to find a smart, striped jacket for you
Daisy Dot Midi Top from Anthropologie
Daisy Dot Midi Top from Anthropologie; the Universal Donor, could be worn with any of the jackets
Frame Le Cadet Jacket from Shopbop
Frame Le Cadet Jacket from Shopbop; if you don’t have a fatigue green field jacket, you need one
Amelie Blouse from Anthropologie
Amelie Blouse from Anthropologie, would look best with the jackets by JCrew and Carven
JCrew Downtown Field Jacket
JCrew Downtown Field Jacket; I love mine
Carven Jean Jacket from Shopbop
Carven Jean Jacket from Shopbop; if I hadn’t just bought a directional denim jacket . . .

velvet Edana tie-dye blouse from Matches
Velvet Edana Tie-Dye Blouse from Matches; would look so smart with white jeans and/or a navy jacket
Marc by Marc Jacobs Splatter Paint Saddle Bag
Marc by Marc Jacobs Splatter Paint Saddle Bag; as ridiculous as this may sound, I could see this bag getting a lot of use
Esprit Button Up Denim Midi Skir
Esprit Button-Up Denim Midi Skirt from ASOS; makes me wish I had a secret stash of Esprit catalogs from the mid 1980s
Tory Burch ___ Fret Square Scarf (silk, 36" sq.)
Tory Burch Fret-Print Square Scarf; would look best with the Carven Jean Jacket
Tory Burch ___ Tscarf
Tory Burch Cut-Out T-Print Scarf; this one would look great with any of the jackets

Don’t stand back and try to take it all in. This collection is incoherent — to the point of discordance — as a whole. Each piece, however, is terrific.

Have a fantastic weekend!

    • I purchased the Amelie blouse and wore it in Monday’s post. And I bought the JCrew Downtown Field Jacket last spring (and really love it). That’s all! The rest is purely academic . . .thought the Cut-Out T scarf is very tempting.

  1. I just put that Tory Burch silk square in my Nordstrom shopping cart yesterday! Now that I know it has your stamp of approval, I might pull the trigger. 🙂 And I love that Bailey 44 striped jacket.

    • In my experience, it might go on sale at toryburch.com before it is marked down at Nordstrom. It also might sell out before it goes on sale.

  2. I’ve been thinking about the paint splattered bag since yesterday and have determined, decidedly, that it’s not ridiculous! I agree that it could be very useful in lots of outfits. However, I just showed the selections to dear husband and he is rooting for the stripped jacket. Some more thinking is in order…
