spring clean


This spring, I’ve been drawn to clean, crisp lines and neutral colors. Maybe it’s because the past couple of months have brought so much change and new beginnings into my life: the longer and brighter days of my first spring in a new city, a new job in a completely different industryand of course, this new baby blog!

I’ve also been trying to build a more intentional wardrobe (post on that coming soon) and finding versatile yet statement pieces that work for multiple occasions but don’t feel boring. It’s a tall order, but I believe those pieces are out there!

For example, I love the big sleeves on this otherwise plain white button-down; they’re not quite bell sleeves but they’re big and roomy and breezy yet still structured enough to feel polished and put-together. And I find the crop length of the shirt more flattering for my height.

With minimal outfits like this one, it’s really fun to let your accessories do the heavy-lifting. This watch (a sentimental favorite as a gift from my boyfriend, who bought this for no other reason than the fact that the watch was named “Catherine”) takes the look from “little boy at a funeral” to “grown woman who did her taxes by herself” (jokes, my parents did them).

What are your favorite versatile statement pieces? Sounds like an oxymoron, but I encourage you to find some pieces that work twice as hard for you (with half the impact on the environment)!
