As you are reading this I am back in Houston – it is always such a great feeling to come home after a long trip. You forget the little things, like how your house smells, that are just irreplaceable! While I enjoyed the DC weather for the most part, we did have a hot day right before I left, so I whipped out my new Marimekko for Banana Republic bright floral tailored shorts.
Marimekko Banana Republic shorts (cheek out some of my other favorite floral shorts below), BCBG top (mine is last season but here is current BCBG neon yellow top), J.Crew blazer (on sale) , Chanel bag, Zara shoes (love these Michael Kors block heel strappy black sandals), necklace, Ray-Ban aviators, Cartier bracelets
I was not actually a big fan of shorts before I moved to Houston, but when temperatures reach sky-high levels shorts become a necessity. I am always on the hunt for a chic pair with great details, so when I saw this bright floral tailored pair I couldn’t resist. They are from the limited capsule collection by Marimekko for Banana Republic (they are unfortunately sold out online but you may be able to find a pair in stores). Marimekko is a Finnish fashion and design house which is known for its bold textile patterns. I love the juxtaposition of the floral pattern with the chic tailored design – it is such a great combination that I imagine wearing them everywhere, from the beach to a girls lunch out.
Have a wonderful week!
