With all the political unrest here in New York City over the past few weeks, it’s hard to think of much else. I go between obsessing over the news and reading every article to having a media-free day where I bury my head in the sand. It’s refreshing to find some solace and hope through those who I follow on instagram.
I follow Camilla because she is a creative force of nature, but her instagram stories provide great political insight into articles to read and steps we need to take with our senators. @camilladeterre

The Row offers an update to the classic slides for spring with their new Capri slides. @matchesfashion
I’ve recently found myself engrossed in simple still life images. The work of Caylon Hackwith is a new favorite. @caylonhackwith

The older I get, the more calculated my wardrobe investments become. I assess the pieces that have lasted the longest in my wardrobe and I use them as a benchmark for buying new pieces. One of the things I spend the most money on, that last the longest, are shoes. I have friends who swear by one shoe style and continue to re-buy the same shoes when the originals wear out. I continue to resole and repair my favorite shoes until my cobbler tells me they aren’t worth the cost of the repair. Currently, I am wearing out these black boots.
Whatever shoe shopping style you choose, you can always appreciate a beautifully made shoe. Which brings me to today’s subject… The Row shoes. Made in Italy, the Resort 2017 collection is comprised of paired down, classic shapes that women of every age can appreciate and wear. Investing in shoes from The Row is something I’ve been considering for my upcoming birthday. Above you’ll find my selects. There is something for every occasion. If only this Resort collection was available before I got married last October, I would have worn the sandals throughout our entire wedding week in Mexico. Instead, I am dreaming of the winter boots with treads, a minimal, classic winter boot that doesn’t make you want to vomit, and is sure to help you navigate the icy streets of the city.

When building a classic wardrobe, sometimes a touch of trend is needed to keep things fresh. The key to introducing a trend into your well-edited wardrobe is to invest in pieces with classic silhouettes. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite fringe pieces of the season including a cropped sweater, hobo bag, and slide.
