Finally Spring seems to have decided to make an appearance. And with it lots of lovely new items that make it feel welcome and me feel happy. I am absolutely in love with Zaara’s clear jewelry. It is so, so, so amazing and I keep wearing it with everything. The detail is nothing short of miraculous. I have tried to give you a good idea here of how special it really is..so forgive the picture spam. I love the silvery leaves embedded in the beads of the necklace and in the bracelets and the light and airy look of the earrings made of the same silver leaves and little pearls. (It also comes in amber, see photo here.) I usually put together an outfit and then accessorize it but in this case I started with the jewelry and built the outfit around it. It was a chance to wear a wonderful skirt from Malt that I love and the Michami Carmela bustier and cardi. And finally…NEW SHOES!! From Courtisane, these shoes are to die for. The platform shape, the colors and the fringed leather at the ankle (which is optional, you get a pair without the fringes too). I showed you a few of the colors but not all…there are a lot! Go check them our and take your lindens because you will want some! As always click on any photo for a larger, more detailed image.

Sometimes it’s a color that starts an outfit. In this case I wanted to wear the beautiful blue Lelutka jacket and I started there. Everything I am wearing was already in my “closet” except for my wonderful new hair and hat from Lamb! The boots from J’s are fairly new too. I did buy the fatpack which gives you all the color choices. I know when I bought it I thought I would never need the blue boots but… here they are and the color is great… not really too blue, a tasteful blue-grey color. The detailing on these boots is exceptional and they come in two versions, the one I am wearing and a shorter one to wear with pants. Good idea! I had to include a snapshot with the detail of the hose from Tyranny. I especially love them with the cute, cute bows and the stitching detail on the back. I have a weakness for hose, socks and tights so when I found these I bought every color….They are really versatile too, high enough that you can wear them under skirts or knee-length pants without seeing the band at the top. I added one of the Zaara embroided shawls that came out last year and that I still adore…they are so beautiful. The jacket is layered over an old stand-by, the Armidi Gisaci Rainy Day dress. I have this in several colors and it makes a great wardrobe staple. So this may be a little summery for the newly cool weather here in the Northern hemisphere but hey, it’s still warm in Phil’s world!
