Spring is the Time of Plans and Projects


St. John jacket, Forever 21 trousers, Louis Vuitton duffel, Chanel ballet flats, Sermoneta leather gloves, Herm├Ęs double tour bracelet

With a sizable collar and perfectly square pockets, the perceived properness of a tweed buttoned jacket can be easily offset with the flamboyance of overabundant studs. I swear the fact that I am wearing green on St. Patrick's Day is a complete coincidence. It must have been an instinctual decision, or even better, an indication of impending luck. Green tweed and bell sleeves make it such a seasonal piece, something to wear with snow white gloves at the culmination of winter. There is too much irony involved in initiating a springtime effect with black as an undercoating for the pastels I subsequently piled on. At this point, something about having a dark, solid base to work with elicits the sudden urge to add in shades reminiscent of spring...and lemons, I suppose.

Hmmm, I find it hard to believe that you wearing green on St. Patrick's day is but a mere coincidence. It must be a government orchestrated conspiracy ;)

Well it's true. If it takes a government orchestrated conspiracy theory as some excuse to convince yourself otherwise, then so be it ;)
