Over the past few months my mind continues to wonder about the evolution of personal style. We all go through some questionable fashion phases, but eventually we plateau at a point where we feel comfortable, sophisticated and age appropriate. I’ve nailed down my personal style over the past few years, and with my 30th birthday looming, I can’t help but make a wish list of elevated wardrobe pieces for this season. I’ve rounded up my current sartorial cravings, from updated basics to everyday essentials with a few out-of-my-budget extras thrown in.
J.W. Anderson neck tie shirt
: J.W. Anderson is one of my favorite designers, and I’m hoping this season is the season to add a little J.W. to my wardrobe. I love the polished ease of this tie neck shirt.
Isabel Marant watch
: While this isn’t my dream watch (in case you were wondering is a vintage Piaget), this Isabel Marant watch comes in second with at a fraction of the cost. Menswear inspired and timeless… pun intended.
Tibi fringe scarf
: Oversized and light weight, this scarf is seasonless and versatile, two of my favorite traits in an accessory.
Saint James Meridien li top
: A simple color mash up instantly refreshes the classic mariner tee. Navy blue and olive green classify this as the perfect new basic for Spring.
KARA Classic messenger bag
: I like my bags how I like my dresses, without a lot of frills. Sarah Law designs KARA bags with a minimalist and timeless approach. The new messenger bag for Resort 2015 tops my list for this year’s new bag.
Acne Studios Serva belt
: As you know, a simple black belt has been on my list for well over a year. This one from Acne Studios has an added D-ring loop to make it easy to wear with jackets that don’t have belt loops. Simple, effective design.
MNZ Roberta heels
: Suede heeled ballerinas in an icy gray shade, is the perfect way to lighten up my otherwise dark wardrobe. I also love the Roberta heels in whiskey
. Non-black shoes for Spring is a thing… you heard it here first.
: I wear black jeans pretty much every day, so when Vetements designed a couture-esque pair (with a couture price tag) they immediately caught my eye. Frayed hems, intricate seaming details… this isn’t your average pair of jeans and I want them.
