I didn’t set out to build a Spring uniform, but here we are.
Any time I want to leave the house looking put together I find I reach for my high-waisted cropped/ankle jeans (try 100% denim, you might be surprised how good it feels), a graphic/patterned tee, excellent shoes, and a light functional (AKA derived from a piece of clothing previously wore for a certain function, not meaning “non-broken”) jacket.
The brown Marants have proven to be quite versatile. They’ll work for fall and winter too.
Here are some other options, at a range of price points (except Birkenstocks because why on earth buy a lookalike?) I’ll be dressed like this until that week this summer when our temperatures exceed 90 degrees and I flee, flushed, to maxidresses. The Gucci slides might follow, I imagine block-heeled sandals will play a supporting role.
