This probably has been the one Winter here in LA that actually feels like Winter. I know shocking. There's been massive amounts of rain. Days and days of rain. Truthfully, I can't take it. My cold bones require sun. Plus, I'm a blogger. Bloggers need at least a dry overcast day for pictures. So you bet the second there was a day of sunshine, I celebrated in appropriate fashion, blogger fashion that is.
Don't get me wrong, it's still chilly even with the sun out. But I went straight to the section of my closet that holds all my resent finds that scream beautiful Spring day. I beelined for this pleated bell-sleeve top. I've been saving it for a day just like this. It's just one of those tops that has the right details that you don't question it completing a hole in your wardrobe. Paired with grey, it's an easy transitional look from Winter to Spring.
While the days of Spring-like weather are slim, it still doesn't stop me from looking for pieces like this top to add in. Quality and unique basics are something that really defines any wardrobe, but feel like investments. Banana Republic has mastered that. My younger self used to think it was just work wear, but funny how time has changed that opinion. They stepped it up in crafting pieces that can work for more than the office. Sure this top pairs well with jeans, but in my imaginary fancy office job I would so wear it with black ankle length slacks. Even my boyfriend knows he can grab basics that he will have for years. Don't tell him, but I think he might have discovered that before me. But it's okay-this is the one store we both can shop at and not have him rushing me out:)
Are you already shopping for Spring?
