see it. want it. buy it.

I’m back, back again with new content! Apologies for the unannounced hiatus, but sometimes a little R&R is absolutely in order. Like any other self-proclaimed fashion person, I’m constantly on the hunt for the latest fill-in-the-blank wardrobe essential to invest in for the upcoming season. But then, there are always those $$$ pieces that are pretty wow-worthy in their own right. Here’s the potential start of a new series in which I spotlight a few well-calculated splurges that I could definitely justify, especially when you factor in cost per wear and all that jazz. 

The Saddle Bag in Leather (Cambridge Satchel) // Cue the summer strolls in the English countryside — yes, I’m indeed dreaming. My inner prepster is swooning at the sight of this hands-free Cambridge Satchel saddle bag reimagined with classic blue Breton stripes (can you say MDW-ready?). Between upcoming getaways and weekend brunch dates, you won’t find a more versatile carryall to accompany you this summer. For #OOTD perfection, throw in an Audrey Hepburn-esque midi skirt, a streamlined blouse and some woven huaraches. 

Mosebacke Pale Pink Raincoat (Stutterheim) // Dare I say it, we ALL need a rainy day slicker that makes us look forward to the prospect of rainy days. I recently stumbled across Stutterheim on Instagram, and let me tell ya, I’m obsessed with everything that this aesthetically pleasing brand has to offer. (Their tagline, “Swedish melancholy at its driest,” pretty much says it all.) Introducing the millennial pink raincoat of my dreams that I would undoubtedly reach for rain or shine. Non-femme crowd: There’s a slew of other covetable hues (ahem, rubbery ducky yellow!) available for your sartorial pleasure. 

Chuck Taylor 1970s High-Top Sneakers (Comme des Garçons PLAY x Converse) // Since I’m apparently into sneakers these days (who am I?), I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m in dire need of some Chuck Taylors. But not just any old Chucks — I’ve got my sights set on Converse’s It girl-approved collab with Comme des Garçons PLAY. The black high-tops featuring the brand’s iconic peekaboo heart, to be exact. I imagine teaming these bad boys with everything from denim cutoffs and streamlined button-downs to carefree striped dresses for no shortage of downtown appeal (think: lower East Side meets Brooklyn).
