A little slow getting into the swing of things, but I think I’m finally ready to get going! We’ve been fortunate to be having a relatively mild winter this year. Luckily that means that I some days I can wear outfits that are more “fall-like”, and get away with things I’d normally not be able to get away with during this time of year, like say, sneakers without socks! Yes, really!
I love the idea of summer knits, though, not always so practical when you live in a hot and humid climate. To some, I may be fortunate to be able to wear these summer-weight sweaters (I think I’m still on the fence, but I do like that fact that I can still wear full-length denim in the summer now that I’m living back home in Toronto).
I wanted to post about this Wilfred Balzac sweater because I’m in love with it and many of the colors are on sale. It has a nice drapey fit with a dolman sleeve without being overwhelming on my petite frame. It is a cashmere/silk blend and not itchy at all for those of you that are sensitive to wool. Note however, that it runs on the large side. I actually went down one size for a not-too-oversized fit. I see only a small selection online, but you may find many more colors in your local store. I believe I counted five different colors including orange and lavender. The prices range from $45 on sale to $95 full price, and vary according to color. I think I may pick up another in Milk!
This Madewell Bucket Bag has been my go-to bag in my spring wardrobe. Though, I usually opt for more structured bags, it is a nice change from my usual. It’s also not too small or too big and and not too heavy for a cross-body bag of this size. The leather is also very thick and sturdy. Dare I say that it looks better with wear? Some reviews mention that the leather stains clothes. I haven’t had this problem at all, but if you wear light colors and tend to get a little “damp” during warmer days, this is something that I would be cautious of if wearing cross-body. Highly recommend.
You can get it at Shopbop or at Madewell in black or dark camel. There is also a slightly smaller version in a Light Camel that is currently 25% off. Find it here.
Also shop it here along with the rest of the ensemble!
