Spring Wishlist Part 1

Spring is finally here. I notice my hands straying towards and picking up jackets instead of coats before running out the door in the morning. Transitional weather has always been my favourite in terms of deciding what to wear because the versatility required is always a fun challenge. Spring layering and lighter colours seem called for and this is just a little outfit idea that has been knocking around my head since Autumn, although it seem to call more for a Spring occasion.

I have never really been one to wear khaki or beige suits, but in cotton it seems the perfect casual suit. I suppose I have this notion in my head of khaki being a very American style, however with a few quirks such as the Liberty print pocket squares, I am sure I could make it my own. I also have been rather obsessed with the idea of hunting down a pair of two-tone shoes for Summer. Oh, and I know the Disney ring is technically a woman's ring, but I have spindly fingers and I want it!

  7. Oh, this is all amazing. It all makes me jealous that you're a boy and I'm a girl, for you can wear all of this :P
    I absolutely love the glasses and the suit and the floral pocket squares. I've also been wanting some two-toned shoes, or at least shoes in the same style.
    I hope you're well and had a great Monday, dear! :D
    Have an amazing week :D
