Wise Mr. Owl

So I’ve been noticing owls everywhere.  I didn’t want to overload you guys, but here are some examples that I liked:

anthro

Pretty clutch from Anthropologie

f21

from Forever21, they had a bunch of owl-themed things

French Connection UK, they have a top too.

visual notes

Visual notes/thoughts on clothes/looks/styles for summer.  AKA my thoughts on getting dressed these days.  Also a wish-list of sorts

(I scanned, but I’m not sure from where, sorry) great basics for summer – simple shapes, light colors.  Looks great.  The bottom could be pants, shorts or a skirt and it would be equally as wonderful.

(again I scanned this from a French magazine, but I’m not sure which one) A more complicated summer look – the blazer is definitely too much for where I live, but still cute. I’m closer to embracing athletic apparel in non-athletic situations, but it’s been slow.

(from ShopBop.com’s lookbook) very nice and simple.  Ever since I saw Coco avant Chanel I’ve been searching for a great striped shirt.  This one from Rag & Bone on Shopbop.com is $115 – more than I’d like to spend on a basic piece like that.  Pretty, though.  Shorts are great too.

(from Style.com) 3.1 Phillip Lim 2010 resort – I looooooove the jacket, and the skirt, and the shirt… ok, I just love.

jenni kayne resort 2010

(also from Style.com) Jenni Kayne resort 2010 – great colors and a great way to toughen up a sweet little dress/skirt.  I’m not sure how I feel about the lack of collar on the jacket, but I definitely like the general idea.

It’s nice to dream, but mostly it’s too hot to wear anything interesting.  My first concern is not melting and the second is looking good, and the third is not freezing in air conditioning.  Oh well, soon it will be winter and I’ll be wishing it were summer…

Spring Forward

So this Sunday was daylight savings time in Paris. No one told me and I got caught off guard, but oh well, there are worse things, at least I wasn’t an hour late for anything.

Not what I meant to post about though.

What daylight savings (and the dawning of April) means is that, theoretically at least, Spring is right around the corner.  Fashion magazines start talking about spring while it’s still cold out, but I can’t think about it until it’s actually warm enough to wear the clothes.  Plus I don’t usually get as excited about spring and summer because 1) there’s a lot more skin 2) it’s soooo hot that I want to wear clothes that are as light as possible, it’s too hard to focus on fashion and 3) the best summer strategy seems to be amazing dresses.  But anyway, here are some things I like for spring (Whenever it intends to start).

I’m a bad blogger, I’ve been saving images on my computer for so long that I don’t necessarily know where they all came from, I’ll mark the ones I do know…
