Revisiting a Favorite Pair of Posts: The Golden Stairs by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones


Do you remember this? I do, and I think of it as one of my finest hours! (well, MANY hours...)

travel capsule wardrobe in taupe with light blue and yellow accents

Sweater – OAK (similar here); triangle earrings – EF Collection; round earrings – Alexis Bittar; pearl bracelet – Effy; moonstone earrings - Temple St. Clair; scarf – Le Jardin de Leila by Hermes; clutch bag – Judith Leiber (similar here); tassel necklace - Avindy; cardigan – J. Crew; sweater – Betty Barclay; velvet jeans – Closed; (similar here) skirt – Suno (similar here); dress – Chi Chi; yellow shirt – Alexander Wang; ballet flats – Calvin Klein; sandals – Stuart Weitzman (similar here); boots - Seychelles; tote - Furla

If you'd like to flash back to the lovely trip that our heroine was taking with this travel capsule wardrobe, you can find her here.

And a couple of days later our heroine decided to start building a larger wardrobe around the same color scheme; this was what she found and how it worked out...

Through the end of the summer, I'm going to "flash back" twice a week (I'm targeting Tuesdays and Thursdays...) I hope that this isn't an inconvenience for any of you; I have a couple of trips coming up (of COURSE I do...) and I find that I need a bit of time to get things sorted out chez nous.

love,
Janice

  3. Janice,
    You have done so many fabulous posts that revisiting a few is like seeing them new all over again ! Call me a slow learner, but I often find myself gleaning another aspect that I missed the first time around ! That Chi Chi dress has me swooning ! Enjoy your travels !

  7. I hope your travel is to fabulous destinations! Thank you for providing some updated similar items for this classic post. Taupe is such a versatile color, but not it really can be hard to find. - nancyo

  10. I do remember this one, loved the heroine and I always love your stories. Doing the reruns is a good way to plug in during busy times. Thanks for the tip, the garden's taking up a lot of my time right now and reruns seem a nicer approach than going MIA for days, which is what I tend to do!
