Closet Candy :: Spring Style 2013

I am disappointed that I did not make it to the Gilt City Boston Warehouse Sale last week due to circumstances beyond my control. Having missed out on some serious bargain hunting, I'm flinging spring to the blog today. Wednesday is the first day of spring after all...even with snow still covering parts of the pavement in Boston. So, what's my closet coveting this season, you ask? Well, a lot and way more than my wallet can handle. Here's a look at five of my favorites...

Vine Camuto Torta Wedges
I have a passive, agressive relationship with wedges. I love them because I could practically run a marathon in them, however (at times) they can look and feel clunky and un-lady like. With all prim and properness aside, I love this cantaloupe pair from Vince Camuto. The bold medallion is a show stopper. What a perfect companion to white, cropped skinny pants. And if you call them espadrilles, it sounds far more glamours. Espadrilles, my darlings. Espadrilles.

Banana Republic Piped Navy Trench
I love navy...even a little more than I love black. Navy and white are two colors that herald in spring. Banana Republic does right by the classic combination this spring with a piped navy trench. This coat is coastal-chic and so very New England. Add a pop of fuchsia, turquoise or tangerine for contrast. 

Joseph Altuzarra Dress
Joseph Altuzarra has an impeccable eye for authentic, feminine style. His collection is also worthy of every penny marked on the tag. I adore almost anything in gray and cream, so naturally I felt compelled to include this darling ikat-print dress. The solid bodice and leather-trimmed silk and grosgrain belt lends this piece an authentic feel that is perfect for an alfresco dinner date.

Gap Fitted Boyfriend Cat Print Shirt
It's a cotton shirt with a million cats. That is all.

Prada Degrade Sequin Clutch
And from the haute home of handbags (my favorite accessory) comes a sleek Prada blue-to-green sequin clutch. This scaly pouch looks like something fit for a mermaid and her fin. As for me, I would pair this sparkler with dark cropped jeans, a white silk blouse and gray peep-toe heels.

What kind of candy are you and your closet coveting for spring?

    1. Isn't that dress gorgeous, Kara?! I'm all about it too.

  2. So many great pieces! I am definitely in need of a shoe and bag update (more wedge please) but some statement pieces along with updated basics like your printed oxford xo

    1. I actually bought the cat shirt last weekend. I'm still trying to figure out how to wear it as the fit is not as slim and clean as shown on the model. Spring is near!
