Not a lot of purchases so far this year. Just the three pieces below (and in Finds):

  • exact replacement for my favorite silk blouse, secondhand (essential)
  • short sleeve velvet tee, perfect for SoCal winters (statement)
  • easy printed jersey dress (statement)
  • plus, a pair of straight-leg jeans, still on order (essential)

I'm starting to think about summer now--our long, looooong dominant season, summer. I think my essentials are in decent shape, with a few exceptions. My jumpsuit is starting to look a bit worse for wear after more than a hundred outings. I could use an easy woven tee, similar to the velvet one, but in cotton or linen. And finally, I think our weather just requires an annual pair of sandals, to keep several in rotation.

Other than that, I'm just...not feeling super inspired. My inspiration board is much stronger on cool weather than hot. Maybe a breezy black tiered dress? Something embroidered and kaftan-y? Or something bold and patterned? What will feel inspiring when it's 94° (ie: next week)?
