ah, thanks for the inspirational pictures. Rolled jeans/pants and loose sweaters are exactly what I'm craving for spring.

LOL! ;P I wouldn't mind to come across the right pair of olive chinos one day, but it's not a priority...

Great looks! Simple, chic and lovely!!!

All the looks capture the spirit of nonchalance really well. If only I can find that perfect loose sweater in a light material.

Great post..on the hint for a perfect loose-knit hard to find!x

Very inspirational! Where can a find the perfect tapered rolled black linen pants? So hard to find.
I know Isabel Marant has some great linen pants this spring, but I can't find any main line items here.

S: We'll be twins come Spring then! :))

Prêt à Porter P:I couldn't resist! I guess you're still looking for the white blazer. I found decent chinos at H&M and Gap.

Thanks Emmy!

Lin: Maybe a linen mixed sweater? I think I saw some at Zara.

Thanks t!

Thanks Milly. Indeed, it's hard to find. I just experienced it at h&m which has a Michael Kors-like knit but the stitch already gives sign of tear. Pity.

Garderoben: Comme par hasard my favorite slouchy trousers are Etoile...Just a hint you know...

I saw some on gap's website, but haven't checked it out in person. Thanks for the tip about h&m. When I'm in the clothes shopping mood I may check them out. I'm not even looking for the white blazer to be honest.

You're welcome Prêt. I've experienced the same kind of loss of interest in shopping for a few weeks. I guess that's good for the bank account.
