Lovely Lilac and Lavender

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m loving lavender right now. It feels like the breath of fresh air we need to start the month of March. I realized that the pinker shade is more lilac than lavender so I’ve put together some of my favorites in both shades.

If none of these strike your fancy, check out the big Shopbop sale going on until March 2, 2019.

I bought this classic popover shirt in clip dot in this shade of smoky wisteria to get a jump on spring. I can’t wait to wear it with jeans when it warms up.

I have no business buying another coat but I love this lavender double faced wool car coat so much.

Hamish Bowles is synonymous with lilac and lavender and his New York is filled with various shades.

A lilac cashmere sweater is a great transition piece that would look beautiful with grey trousers now and white jeans later.

This long-sleeve everyday cashmere crewneck sweater is a less expensive option.

You can also add lilac and lavender to your home in this work called April Showers.

How about a pastel suit to brighten up a winter day? I love the color of this oversized belted crepe blazer and matching crepe slim-leg pants.

I really wish it was warm enough to wear these chic lilac Flower Suede Heeled Sandals.

This Ulla Johnson Joan Floral Print Cotton & Silk Midi Dress would be perfect for Easter.

These lilac Soft Bow Suede Pumps would also look lovely on Easter.

Even though I’m a bit allergic, I can’t wait for lilac season.
A pinky lavender trench in oversized gingham would definitely brighten up a rainy day.

I don’t need this ribbed cable-knit cashmere beanie but the lavender color would look so pretty with all my grey winter coats when there’s still a chill.

This belted silk crepe de chine midi dress would look pretty with a navy or grey coat on a colder day.

This lavender ruffled gathered silk-crepe dress is the perfect antidote to winter. Wear it know with a pale knee high boot and later with pumps or sandals.

The pièce de résistance of lilac fashions is this Bottega Veneta Lauren crocodile clutch. What a beauty!

Bon weekend and Happy March!

March is the month of expectation,
The things we do not know,
The Persons of Prognostication
Are coming now.
We try to sham becoming firmness,
But pompous joy
Betrays us, as his first betrothal
Betrays a boy.
– Emily Dickinson, XLVIII
