5 Piece Wardrobe Wishlist: Spring/Summer 2014

I dug my photoshop skills out of the grave (wait...what photoshop skills?) to make this set. It brought back some fond memories of my friend, Kat, teaching me a few photoshop basics a few years ago. I think this set describes my personal style accurately. I love a neutral color palette. I also like to dress like an awkward boy, but I also love feminine silhouettes. 

1. All-weather urban anorak. I love anoraks. I own two in longer lengths, but sometimes I'd love one in a slightly shorter length. This anorak is great because it's water resistant and the color blocking adds some interest. I can see this being worn for many seasons to come.

2. A white summer dress. This dress from Dolce Vita is great, but the price is too high to justify. I can see a white dress going with so many things...dressed down with an anorak and ankle boots, slightly dressier with a cardigan and sandals, casually with a chunky sweater...and the list goes on.

3. Clare Vivier Flat Clutch. I love the look of a simple clutch. I think black is a great color because it transitions from day to night well. I've heard about Clare Vivier and I appreciate the socially conscious construction and that her bags are "locally made" in Los Angeles. 

4. Basic Trenchcoat. I was longing for a camel coat this winter, but let's be real, it doesn't get that cold in California. A trenchcoat, however; I can see being worn year-round. I like the simple design of this one from Madewell.

5. Dieppa Restrepo Dandy Loafers. As I mentioned earlier I like to dress like an awkward boy, and what better way to do that than with loafers? I love how simple these loafers from Dieppa Restrepo are and the fact that they aren't mass produced in a factory. I'm actually torn between these and the Gray Dieppa Restrepo Cali Oxfords. I love the classic, timeless design of these loafers and can see them becoming an everyday shoe. 

Sigh. I need to become more conscious of my shopping. I've been clearing a lot of things out my closet lately, there's just too many things that have been sitting in my closet that haven't I found the "right time" to wear. If I could only add 5 pieces to my wardrobe to my closet this season, I'd have to be able to think of at least 10 ways to incorporate it with existing pieces to justify the price point.
