Today, I am inspired by the classic elegance of Lady Di in her blue blazer above. I love that she took fashion risks, but I am today celebrating the classics she wore with aplomb — a reminder that basics are not boring. A few essential-type pieces that will withstand the test of time and trends:
VERONICA BEARD BLUE BLAZER (LOOK FOR LESS WITH THIS)
CLASSIC STRUCTURED LEATHER TOTE
LONGLINE CAMEL COAT
CHUNKY GOLD EVERYDAY EARRINGS LIKE THESE OR THESE
TIFFANY KEY RING
CLASSIC TRENCH ($148!)
TIMELESS GOLD BANGLE
LEATHER STRAP WATCH
DARK WASH SKINNY JEANS
PERFECT BLACK SUEDE KITTEN HEEL PUMP
CASHMERE CREWNECKS OR CARDIGANS (<<ON SUPER SALE)
TORTOISE OR BLACK SHADES (LOOK FOR LESS WITH THESE)
LACOSTE BALLCAP FOR DODGING THE PAPARAZZI, ALONG WITH CLASSIC HEATHER GRAY SWEAT PANTS AND CREWNECK SWEATSHIRT
And if you are on the opposite end of the fashion spectrum (i.e., give me all the ornamentation and embellishment), this post is for you. And also this one, featuring a can’t-miss $60 sparkle dress to see you through NYE at home.
P.S. Easily one of the best books I’ve read this year.
P.P.S. Lilacs and poetics.
P.P.P.S. When Mr. Magpie came to visit me in France…
