Spring Inspiration from APC

While I've readily admitted that I'm still basking in the freezing weather and enjoying the bits of snow left of the ground, thoughts of spring have begun to invade my mind. Yesterday included a huge closet clean-out where I realized I'd been hoarding sweaters and shoes and put about half of each into a pile to sell. Cleaning out the closet is always my first harbinger of spring fever.

The APC collections always seem to knock me into high gear for the next season and this one is no exception. I love their vision of early spring with lightweight long sleeve dresses and bare legs, strappy sandals worn with socks and of course, the perfect trench coat. Since my pockets don't run APC-deep, I'll have to mine my own closet and keep my eyes open at vintage stores to see what I can come up with. That last outfit: loose floral dress, super soft cardigan, white sneakers (how Swedish!) and of course, a beret. It's perfection!

Oh I love them. The second to last is my favourite, I have such a weakness for stripes.

Pretty! I love the first 2 especially. Not sure I could pull off the sandal/sock look, but it looks great on her.

Hi.

You have painfully gorgeous vintage items. It must be tough letting some go, it'd be too hard for me!

Great job, keep it up! Love looking through.
