Lusting :: Coral Crush

1. Kelly Wearstler cuff (similar) | 2. StyleBop white tee | 3. Chloé skirt  | 4. Chanel polish in Orange Fizz (similar by Essie | 5. Bvlgari sunglasses | 6. Lanvin wedges | 7. Fendi bag

Now, I know the days when we can wear this outfit are months away for most of us, but you'll have to forgive me. With all of the spring collections appearing in stores and online it is taking everything in me to calm my heart down from all the gorgeous colors and magnificent sandals that are everywhere I turn. Besides, as I write this, it is currently 60 degrees in Atlanta. That warrants a spring inspired post, right? I've been excited to see Kelly Wearstler's new collection since Kelly Framel shared her amazing collaboration out in California (here and here). And the Lanvin wedges? Well, let's just say Lanvin has yet to create a pair of shoes I didn't love.

My friend Rachel requested that I include more attainable pieces in these posts, but I must admit I find it extremely hard. While this outfit is very accessible and all of the pieces are trendy enough that you could absolutely find cheaper versions at your local mass retailers, those cheaper versions never excite me in the same way nor do they have the same appeal. It's like a Cy Twombly original versus an Ikea screenprint--it will never have the same wow factor. So for now these collages will serve as inspiration, but I will always anticipate the day when I am able to afford the pieces I feature and support the designers who create such magnificence.

  5. Ah! This would be such an amazing outfit! I love the simplicity of the top and skirt with the cool accessories. I looooove the ring and polish a lot but I have to say, those wedges are AMAZING. I've been saying this a lot lately, but, I can't wait for spring! Thanks for the inspiration.
