I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I couldn’t post Friday because I was playing in the Silver Raquets tennis tournament. The best weekend to have an outdoor tennis event. It was cool and breezy pretty much the entire time. It was a fun event and great to get back into something that I love.
Lace is a huge trend this fall and it is available in nearly every form. From dresses to tops to skirts. I love the delicacy of lace and the beautiful texture and patterns that it creates in one solid color. It is like wearing print but not. I came across this top and just fell in love with the color and shape. I also appreciated the fact that the lace top came with a matching color tank top. It made the top so much easier to wear. The pink is my favorite but I really like the black and white options as well. I paired the top with flared denim but it would be equally fun with skinnies or a pencil skirt.
I apologize for my recent sporadic posts, but between work, bringing my new au pair up to speed and the end of the school year things have been a bit crazy. Hopefully I will be back on my regular schedule very soon! Today I want to share a restyle of one of my favorite purchases – this pink fringe skirt. The movement on this skirt is so much fun that I really want to share a video of it in action! Remember my beach styling here? Today’s styling is a bit more relaxed – it was the perfect outfit for Mother’s Day Brunch!
I hope you have had a wonderful week! I want to discuss a fun trend that is still going strong this spring – fringe! This trend was introduced in the fall, but it really accelerated this spring and was seen all over Fashion Week – from Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren, Givenchy and Marissa Webb to Banana Republic. Fringe epitomizes fun and whimsy, and my motto has always been fashion should be fun! What can be more fun than fringe? I started with this neutral blush pink midi fringe skirt, which is so flirty and feminine, and I added some structure with my current favorite jacket (also seen here and here). A mix of masculine and feminine is always modern. I added my neutral shoes to elongate my legs (I recommend picking a neutral that matches you skin tone – more peachy or beige depending on your undertones), grabbed a straw bag and off I went to dinner….
