5 Random Things

Here are some things I thought were interesting or curious this week and wanted to share with you:

  1. Refinery29 put up a shopping guide for 12 Perfect Pairs of Tan Booties That Will Put A Spring In Your Step. High heeled, low heeled, pricey and affordable. Great picks.
  2. Tommy Ton shoots street style at the Spring Couture shows that are happening now. It’s the show before the show, if you know what I mean.
  3. WhoWhatWear gives us a lesson on how to wear your jeans with boots and how to remedy that awkward boot tuck.
  4. Is this the end of Lady Mary’s suitor, Lord Gillingham? We hope not, because he’s kind of dreamy. Get another look at this handsome bloke.
  5. And on that note, take a sip of Cocktail Recipes from the World’s Most Romantic Bars. Passion Royale, anyone?

Hang in there! It’s almost the weekend.

Street Inspiration: Worldly Winter Coats

Last weeks’ sub-zero arctic blast in Colorado had us braving daily highs of 5 degrees. Brrrrrrr! With that passed, it feels downright balmy at 35 degrees in Boulder today. Boy, does one’s perspective change quickly. Given the icy plunge into deep, dark winter, I wanted to show what women around the world (in the Ukraine, Europe, Scandinavia, Japan, Bulgaria and US) are wearing to keep warm and stylish.

It can be tough to look pulled together when the temperatures are frosty, but these women are wonderful. Their coats range from printed to colorful and romantic to classic. This is why I love local street style so much. It’s not trying to sell me something. It’s just women being real and going about their lives in the clothes they actually wear.

Have fun out there and stay warm!

So, Cal

There’s an undertone of ease to these looks, which I am always drawn too. Pops of color and accessories really elevate these looks from anything ordinary. The addition of a white blazer on Elsal of Wander Uptown, takes her short + T-shirt combo to the next level. And did you notice the light-wash jeans on The Maya Kay?! It’s a 180 degree departure from the over-dyed indigo jeans that have ruled for the past few years. The light color feels right at home during the warm months with an ocean breeze on your skin. If you didn’t want to lighten up your jean color (a bad-idea for some of us — like me), maybe a jean jacket is better. They’re back too.

I no longer wear short-shorts (eek), but would happily swap-out the shorts for a skirt or cropped pant in these outfits. It’s all about doing what works best for your body and re-imagining your closet in new ways. We probably don’t need as many new clothes as we think we do, just new ways to pair our current clothes.

We’ve finally got warm weather in Boulder and Denver, so we’re catching up to the rest of you. Enjoy the day!

Loving: Oxfords

Time to borrow from the boys this spring and lace-up a cute pair of oxfords. Slip them on to balance out a feminine dress or pair them with cropped pants to show off the details. I love how these chic women styled their oxfords (all in pants, no less).

In my last post, You’re Probably A Better Shopper Than I Am, readers chimed in to say that they love to shop online. It’s one of the reasons that I like to include a product feature whenever I talk about trends. I’m hoping that it saves you a bit of time searching for the perfect thing.

These are 5 of the cutest pairs of oxfords available right now.
