Joie sweater, Marc Jacobs Skirt, Cece Toppings dickie, Coach shoes
As luck would have it, as soon as I start waxing optimistic about the bounty of spring....the weather decides to hover around 55 degrees. Nevertheless, I'm not going to let my longtime foe (the Gulf Stream, yes it's true) undermine my new found positivity (mostly because it only has a shelf life of about 2.5 weeks)! So instead of crabbing about having to wear Fall pieces, I'm going to time travel and predict what I will be wearing next fall. I have exactly been shy about my love of shiny leather for Fall 2012, so that's an obvious pick. And, yes, a sweater is not terribly groundbreaking (although hunter green is where it's at peeps!), but I am loving this long shirt/sweater, pencil skirt silhouette that's been going around. Tibi had some of it, so did Derek Lam, and Givenchy too (albeit in 2011. It just comes across as perfectly cozy, but still appropriate for work/night/24-7 with its slightly librarian/academic feel. And, I think it looks great with flats or low heels, i.e. it's COMFORTABLE. So, yeah, take that "Spring".
