Last week, I shared a great spring time look with plaid! Today, I present seersucker to you. I'm loving Brooks Brother's Slim Fit hooded shirt which can easily be paired over Topman's grey twill shorts. This is a great look for walks in the park, walking man's best friend as well as just hanging out after work for a few pints. Accessorize this with Tod's leather bracelet which has a preppy rugged aesthetic as well as a seersucker oxford by Jack Purcell. Finally, cap the look off with this fun bag from Prada which elevates the letterman jacket to a chic level.
It's all about keeping it simple. You know that sometimes your makeup routine is a little lighter as the days get hotter, the same can also apply to your apparel as well! When it gets toastier, my shorts get a little higher and and of course, I'm all about the perfect tank pairing! Today's look has a great ethical component to it! I'm loving Nicole Miller's collaboration with Indego Africa which has vibrant shorts. This cause allows the cute shorts to to have 15% go back to this group of people from Rwanda that represent over 250 artisans that are all about fair trade and social enterprise. In addition, I'm loving with this easy breezy sense of style that this Dream Weaver Wildfox Couture tank is so cute and perfect! I'd totally wear this to run errands, have brunch or just to get out and about. Of course, I'm loving that the accessories to cap it all off include this amazing large cuff that has crystals all over! Roberto Di Castro's piece is fabulous and of course these easy sandals which have braiding detail that caps off the entire look by Jessica Simpson. Ultimately, this is a great alternative to a romper (one of my fave summer looks) and is something you'll see me rocking when I am running around either personal shopping or securing looks for my upcoming shoots.
You'll see that this show was definitely one of my favorites. My birthday was yesterday and although I was backstage at Lela Rose at 9am, this show set the tone for many of the amazing shows that I saw throughout the day. Being able to see Ted Gibson and his team work magic on the models was phenomenal yet again. I loved that in this show, Lela Rose was inspired by Peru and being out in the ocean and Ted conveyed this look with side swept, windblown braided hair - loved the look and it had such a romantic vibe. You felt that each girl had just gotten off a horse. The videos will show the looks being created with the hair and Ted actually speaks with me about the inspiration as well as finding out about his accessories (how can an Accessories Expert resist this).
The videos show the madness of backstage and Mary from Real Housewives DC was backstage (I've seen her quite a bit this Fashion Week as well as shows from yesterday - love her shoes), I got a moment to talk with Lela Rose herself and to hear about her shoe line that is sold at Payless (the ones that she is rocking - $39.95 and available)! In addition, there is footage of accessories laid out for the show, girls getting in their items and of course the final walk on the runway to close the show! Lots of goodies and it's a great way to see what I see when I am attending shows! I also loved meeting the Beauty.com team that was backstage! As always, my fave two looks!
