What I'm Shopping

Spring won't be here for a while, but my mind is very ready for a new neutral palette and some interesting shapes. I've always been into faux tie-waist items (I first blogged about them in 2010 - scary), so these jeans are perfection to me. And for a slight wink, I love this earring in the Euro symbol or an E for Elizabeth.

Need: Creatures of Comfort Bucket Bags

Creatures of Comfort recently launched a range of leather bags and it couldn't have come at a better time. The bags which come in Black, Whiskey and Off White are made of the same kind of leather as the Mansur Gavriel (thin, but structured) bags that are all the rage right now. They come in a few shapes and sizes, but I am in love with the bucket bags in small and large. The best part is that they are that perfect mix between current and timeless.

Need: Unflattering Bottoms

There is a whole genre of dressing that has become popular of late that is totally off limits to me based on body type. And yet, despite the fact that my full hips and thighs make mom jean and gym shorts look supremely unflattering I will be on a mission to find ones that do work for my shape. How these once-taboo pieces became so appealing? I'm not touching that one.

Mom Jeans: BDG The Mom Jean; LA'T for L'Agence Loose Boyfriend Jean; Saturday Cropped Drop Jean
Gym Shorts: Malena Shorts; Day Birger et Mikkelsen Crepe Short; Otte Solid Long Short
