"Once upon a time, Lisa and Jen would head to Calypso and have a spending spree. There were SO many things Lisa and Jen loved and they couldn't stop at just one or two things. They got to know the sales people (Karen in the Newbury Street store is the BEST). They happily shopped this way for a few years, always finding treasures at each visit.
But then one day several years ago, Lisa and Jen began to wander through Calypso aimlessly. There were no special or different clothes or accessories. They had seen it all before. Entire seasons would pass without even a single purchase. Again and again, they would faithfully return to Calypso, in hopes that one day, the magic would return."
People, the magic is back. While trolling through Calypso Resort online, I was tempted by a number of items. Holy cow, I'm in trouble. First thing that will be purchased? This crazy gorgeous Inca Seed necklace. It's love, serious love.
I'm ALWAYS looking for transition tops, and man does Calypso have them this season. They have a fabulous short sleeve cashmere blend sweater I adore…do I want red or navy?! (Oh, and that necklace is the Inca one in ivory!)
Loving this lightweight striped sweater…with the necklace is HEAVEN!
I've never seen their cashmere dusters with stripes before! And you know how Lisa and I LOVE stripes! With a navy t-shirt underneath, it's a great transition outfit (especially since it's so cold here through early May and all you want to do is wear spring clothes!). Comes in gray too!
It's going to take all of my will-power to NOT purchase a pair of these. They are camel, suede Castaner Bel Peep Toe espadrilles. I have them in a gold linen and I wear them to DEATH all summer. I have a summery J.Crew pair of espadrilles from last summer, but these are suede! And SO comfortable. Do you hear my will-power crumbling?!
Loving this tie-dye t-shirt. Would look so cool under my navy, cashmere duster in early April, no?!
OK. I have to stop talking about it. I'm practically foaming at the mouth and I'm about to get 'click-happy' with a full shopping cart. I think a trip to Calypso is in the cards for me next week, as soon as the kids are back in school! Happy New Year, and welcome to Spring 2014! ~ JH
