My spring wardrobe staples (some of them at least!)

I have a feeling this is going to be a staple in my spring wardrobe. This is one of my many thrift store finds. It is a Strenesse camel hair blazer, I guess it was produced sometimes in the nineties from the look of it.  I like to roll up the sleeves and wear it with skinny jeans and high heels. Hardly used it was a real catch at only $10 or 75 sek.

And here are my babies! Well, my shoe babies anyway... Bought them this summer at DSW. They're leather JS by Jessica Simpson. And they ARE comfy! While I was trying them on, totally enamored, my husband asked me: "Will you be able to walk in those?" Stupefied I looked at him thinking: "What does that have to do with anything?" I must say, when it comes to shoes I'm stupid enough to buy shoes that might keep me seated all through the party. Once at a wedding I wore a pair of beautiful vintage fifties pumps, they were SO uncomfortable! I wore them at the wedding ceremony, but even I was wise enough to bring flats for the party. Only, by the time I gave in to the flats, my feet were so swollen I had to have a male friend help me put my shoes on. I like to think I looked like Cinderella when he aided me but honestly, with my swollen feet and face twisted from the pain I probably looked like one of the stepsisters....

And one GREAT birthday present! Thanks grandad! Well, he paid and I chose.... These leather riding boots come from swedish page La Redoute . They are versatile, you can dress them up or down.

And one GREAT christmas gift! These are Disney Couture goldplated earrings. I am an avid Disney fan and on the leaves it says "Believe" on one side and "xoxo Tink" on the other. Best believe in fairies!!! I am becoming quite the earring collector. My husband has been giving me some nice ones.

He has given me a lot of beautiful jewellry through the years. My absolute favorites are my wedding band, my engagement ring, a gold anklet he gave me the morning after our wedding and these Judith Ripka earrings he gave me this summer on our fifth wedding anniversary. I LOVE Judith Ripka! These are silver earrings with amethyst. They will be dangling a lot from my earlobes this spring!


  1. who knew disney had couture? that's awesome. and i really enjoy jessica simpson's designs.. she's managed to make an affordable good looking pair of shoes.. yay!

  2. My sister, also a big Tink fan, was the mastermind behind that christmas gift. Thanks sis! And I LOVE Jessica S shoes. When I wear those booties everybody wants to know where I got them!
