The February Edit With Caroline

We’ve reached mid-season, when the weather still feels like winter can bounce back to life, and yet the first day of spring is on the horizon. This transitional time ushers in a new wave of inspiration for me as we’re filling the stores with new, fresh styles for your wardrobe and home. My closet is currently a mix of coats, boots, sweaters, and dresses, and each week I’m reaching for something different (lately its been rain boots.) As for my home, I’m turning to fresh prints and natural fibers, while still keeping a wool blanket on hand. For those of you planning a spring getaway, we have what you need to stay stylish and warm while you travel. So for February’s edition of The Edit, I’m sharing my curated collection of mid-season favorites for your wardrobe, home and travels.

Dressing during a shift in seasons can be tricky. But approaching it slowly, with the right pieces can help transition your wardrobe from winter to spring. Some of my winter staples are still on heavy rotation, like this Lauren Manoogian Carpenter Hat made from a thick alpaca knit. I also love to layer these Cactus Cashmere Socks under boots.

I wear denim year round, but tend to reach for it more often this time of year, when I want my look to feel a bit lighter. I love the fit of the Riley High Rise Straight Crop Jeans from AGOLDE. It’s their signature style that’s super flattering and goes with everything. Right now I’m styling them with this St. Roche Sissy Stripe Sweater. The cozy blend makes it super soft, and not too heavy, and the puff sleeves are a fun twist on an otherwise classic style.

As we head into spring, I also like to incorporate lighter wash denim styles, like the Citizens of Humanity Daphne Crop High Rise Stovepipe Jeans in Concord. The leg lengthening silhouette and high rise is a favorite style for my shorter frame. I'm pairing them with this striped Long Sleeve Shirt from Nili Lotan and layering this Herno Parka Jacket on top. This jacket is an essential as we transition into spring - It’s water resistant with a luxurious silk-like feel.

A cardigan is a great layering staple and I’m currently coveting the Lupin Cardigan from Madeleine Thompson. It’s made from a cashmere wool blend, making it soft and warm, but lightweight and thin enough to layer. And to complete the look, a versatile bootie is my go-to right now. We just got in the Young Boots from Golden Goose, which are a reinterpretation of a classic cowboy style, and perfect for wearing with denim, pants and dresses.

I'm starting to get the itch to freshen up my home, especially now that we have our newest line of cushions from Spliid, created by fashion and interior designer Charlotte Kjaer Spliid. The Snakehead Cushion features an iconic William Morris print in shades of brown and beige, filled with a luxurious Oeko-Tex certified pillow. I’m also mixing in a few of my vintage handmade cushion too, like this Multi Stripe Natural Grain Sack Cushion.

With temperatures still on the chilly side, the Tile Throw always has a spot on the sofa. It's made from a blend of Merino wool and hand-combed baby yak wool in an architectural-inspired pattern. Another cozy, and seasonless addition is the Dalesbred Felted Wool Rug, which is handmade in the Peak District of England using only the sheep’s wool, not the skin. It can be used as a bench rug, seat pad and as a floor rug. These rugs have become bestsellers with our customers in store and online. 

Updating wall decor is one of my favorite ways to refresh a home. I like to bring in special artwork and natural textures to a space, like this Binga Wall Basket. Woven from wild grasses, this beautiful basket is made by the Tonga natives in  the northern Zimbabwe region of Binga. It was originally used for winnowing grains, but also looks lovely hung on a wall – there is even a loop on the back so it’s ready to go. I also love this vintage Original 1822 Deer Print that was pulled from a Victorian naturalist book, showcasing a time before photography.

My coffee table is like a hub in my home – it often houses books, my laptop and cups of tea. So as the seasons change, I like to rotate different inspiration reads, like The Elements by local photographer Michael Haber. If you’re in the market for a new coffee table, this Vintage Wooden Coffee Table is a timeless design with a weathered wash finish that will compliment many styles.

The right lighting can transform a space, so bringing in a beautiful lamp that gives off soft, warm light is a must. I love the Giulietta Pendant that's made from mouth-blown glass with balloon relief finish diffusers that hang from the ceiling. A lovely addition over a dining table or living room space, or anywhere you're looking to make a statement really.

It seems that a lot of you are either planning a ski trip or heading south to warmer weather. So if you’re looking to pack your bags in the coming weeks, these are my current travel essentials. I like to have a few different bags on hand – a larger one, like this Jorge L Tote from Jérôme Dreyfuss to wear over the shoulder or as hand-held, and a smaller one, like the Nastro Hobo from Anya Hindmarch, which is compact, yet fits all your essentials and has a separate case for your phone, cards and sunglasses.

My go-to travel accessory to keep my necessary-for-travel toiletries organized is this Anya Hindmarch In-Flight Case. It has two sections, one labeled “Take Off” and one labeled “Touch Down”, and the clear plastic helps you eeasily find what you need. I always pack a few different Full Moon sachets from Moon Juice for mind and body support while traveling. Each sachet has a different blend of adaptogenic supports to regulate daily stress.

When it comes to dressing for travel days, the Isabel Marant Étoile Emree Sneakers are a great go-to. They're made from a supple leather with quilted accents in versatile hues, and the design takes a cue from the ’80’s basketball style. To keep warm and stylish mid-flight, pack The Fray Wrap from Jane Carr. Handwoven from pure cashmere, this oversized scarf can be draped over your shoulders or worn as a blanket.

Chic sunnies are a travel essential, and the TK-3 Sunglasses from Oliver Peoples are a modern design that pair well with any outfit. To keep lips quenched mid-flight, pack the Irene Forte Pistachio Lip Balm. Made from buttery shea and wild mango, plus vitamin E, olive oil, pistachio oil and borage seed oil, it nourishes, soothes and softens. Even in winter I don’t leave home without SPF, and my longtime favorite is the Salt & Stone Mineral Sunscreen. It’s ultra lightweight with  a 30 SPF and non-greasy feel.

From coast to coast winter feels long right now, so I hope that sharing my current favorites for your wardrobe, home and travels, lifts your spirits and inspires you for the beautiful and colorful season ahead. 

Sending lots of love,
