The Spring Edit

Newfound staples to cling for spring. Had to add the vertical stripe (per usual) and low-key dapper details for an extra touch of spark. 

Hey Dappers, 
Spring is H E R E…
…as in, warm-enough-to-wear-shorts-and-a-bowling-shirt kind of H E R E. This is not a drill!!
Temps are currently at a steady mid 70’s all throughout the week here in Virginia. So much love and joy as I write this post. #excited

Yesterday was the day I finally unpacked the giant storage bin filled with spring and summer wear.  To my surprise, I didn’t find too many fun options for the blog. A few pastel pieces from Vineyard Vines, Gant, and Tommy Bahama…but nothing outside the box.
Gotta shake things up here and there to keep the blog content fresh. It’s not enough to simply “rinse and repeat.”
I spent a hefty-load of hours browsing the web for a well-needed style upgrade. These items aren’t necessarily “trendy” per se, but more along the lines of “classic 2.0” (aka refined staples). Most, if not all, capture the essence of my signature style, while granting hints of flashy contemporary relevance.
Hopefully this curation inspires you to elevate your spring wardrobe, all while maintaining your personal touch of style.

In the meantime, i’m distancing away from the web, giving e-commerce a necessary break. After all, I SPENT approximately 15-17 hours searching for spring stuff (mainly Nordstrom, East Dane, and Mr Porter). Call me ridiculous?

Happy shopping!
