i can't help but think of a chic granny in boca sporting these pieces (all at once; which is not my recommendation here!). in any event, i am prepping for summer vacations (or, just plain warmth) and have been gravitating toward geometric shapes, primary colors, and of course, boehmia details like fringe and beading but in a subtle, sensible manner.
if you read my first post on our trip to bermuda, you know that i instantly fell in love with the island's colorful architecture, friendly locals, and natural wonders. on our first full day of exploration, mackenzie, grayson, and i visited horseshoe bay which is quite possibly the most beautiful place i've been to in my life.
i picked up this english sports shop crest sweater the day prior so, naturally, that's what i wore paired with my favorite levi's 501s. while the crewneck isn't available online, i found this and this that are super similar (and truly vintage). if you're looking for that candy pink shade, i also love this sweater.
in september, i had picked up these metallic tasseled sandals and thought i'd have to wait until summer to sport them...not the case! they made for the perfect laid back yet chic shoe to slip on and off at the beach. loeffler has some i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-e shoes (resort ready!) out right now. i've been eyeing these after seeing mackenzie in them!
my favorite part of our time in bermuda was hands down horseshoe bay. the crystal clear waters and soft pink sands alone made the trip! we also climbed some of the rock formations making for the most excellent aerial views of the cove.
while i've always admired high-concept, high fashion with wild, ornate, detailed and colorful regalia, the truth is my daily style follows a very simplistic uniform.
particularly in the fall and winter months, i reach for a similar look every day without much thought (jackie shells or featherweight cashmere tees in navy or black, dark skinny jeans, wool topcoats, and flats). when it comes to inspiration, my rotation is equally as routine: i always go back to the olsens, vanessa traina, and of course, carolyn bessette kennedy.
i recently scored a pair of brand new, previously owned chanel two-tone ballerinas at a luxury consignment store (in precisely my apparently "rare" size + insanely good price!) which i feel complete my wardrobe. my picks for a classic, minimal and chic repertoire (and what i actually wear on the daily | minus the hermès constance bag and cartier love ring) — below.
on my birthday wish list: a plethora of pink. it's having a major moment and i've been sporting it heavily this fall, particularly paired with navy, olive, or nude. here, find a few ideas for whatever occasion you might be indulging in.
