Did everyone have a good weekend? We went out for St. Patrick’s Day yesterday, corned beef and cabbage at Marvin’s Tavern. It’s a cute restaurant that Jackie and JFK used to go, and it serves some delicious traditional Irish food at reasonable prices (well, reasonable for Georgetown). Also, all of the trees and flowers are getting ready to bloom, so it was so nice to walk around this weekend in the spring sunshine and crisp night air. Since the sunshine was out I was able to pull out a sundress and my favorite spring purchases - a white jean jacket and basket bag.
It’s still a bit chilly in a lot of the country (or air conditioning can be chilly in warmer places like Florida) but it feel like time to bring out spring dresses and pastel florals. This white denim jacket is the answer! It has been the perfect addition to spring dresses - it adds a layer of warmth, the white is a great accent color that matches spring colors beautifully, and it also adds a layer of interest. I love that the sleeves on this one easily roll up, and the gold grommets are a nice feminine touch. It is also stiff enough that the color stays popped and the sleeves stay rolled, but it is soft enough to be comfortable.
Finally, this is my new favorite handbag (quite possibly one of my favorite bags ever!). I love everything about the Kate Spade re-brand, it’s so fun and classic and retro. My favorite piece in the new collection is this Kate Spade rose small convertible crossbody. I think it looks exactly like something Midge Maisel would have used in the Catskills. The interior has a card case so you don’t need a wallet, and fits all of your essentials, and the strap adjusts to either a crossbody style or a shoulder bag. Be prepared to see this bag a lot on the blog, I’ll be wearing it all spring and summer long!
