UNJUSTIFIABLE OBJECTS OF AFFECTION: SUMMER WARDROBE

Bring on the texture, colour, and… pom-poms.  YES.  Hypothetically, of course – I will be purchasing exactly zero of these.  Keep dreaming, my friends.

1.  Thierry Lasry Peroxxxy sunglasses, Creatures of Comfort.  Achingly cool.

2.  Blakeley summer stripe pumps, J. Crew Collection.  Possibly the least practical pair of shoes I could pick out given my current situation.

3.  Correll Correll S/S14 collection.  Their mixed material clothing is amazing; check out their site because this pic does not really do it justice.

4.  Antonello Tedde woven clutch bag, Madewell.  Those damn pom-poms…

5.  Antik Batik Brasil bracelet, Shopbop.  My daughter and I would inevitably fight over this one.

UNJUSTIFIABLE OBJECTS OF AFFECTION: PATTERNED SHOES

I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions anymore, so I hope you weren’t expecting some kind of profound manifesto for today, the first ‘official’ day back to the regular grind.  If anything, I’m trying to leap into January with a bit more reckless abandon than usual.  Go bold, and do what makes you feel good.  So with that I say –  hello world, goodbye boring shoes.  Purple + yellow floral print is a neutral, right?

BLUE JEAN BABIES

And speaking of unjustifiable wardrobe purchases, thank freaking god these shoes aren’t available in my size, or I’d be in denim-hightop-sneaker (?!) trouble/heaven.  I don’t know what’s wrong with me.  Hashtag first world problems.
