Last week, I took mini to Tisch Children’s Zoo in Central Park and — though I felt stylish in one of my SZ Blockprint caftans — felt a touch bored with my look after observing a chic pea wearing this Zimmerman dress with these Gucci sneakers as she steered her son through the petting zoo. The entire ensemble wasn’t exactly me (those Guccis are a little loud, but they are fierce!), but I liked the frivolity of a floral dress with sneakers and thought: “Well, now. Let’s dust off those Golden Goose kicks and get to work.” I’ll be taking cues from Simply Jules above.
(Aside: try as I might, I cannot get behind the t-shirt-under-a-strappy-dress trend. Too Rachel Green.)
I’d like to recreate the look with…
THIS DELICATELY PATTERNED BLUE AND WHITE FLOUNCE DRESS (GET THE LOOK FOR LESS WITH THIS — $65!)
I’d wear any of these dresses with my Golden Goose sneaks, but if those are too pricey, consider a pair of chic Vejas, a French label with mounting popularity that cost a fraction of the price. (You can see them on the second chic pea above.)
Also “out on a limb” for me: I am loving the boxy neckline and puffed sleeves on this look from Arielle Charnas’ new collection for Something Navy (due to be released soon). It feels simultaneously Victorian and modern and I love it — feminine, fashion-forward, yet easy to wear. In anticipation of the line’s launch, I’m gravitating towards similar styles, like this elegant linen blouse, this floral Amanda Uprichard (very into the smocking), and this dramatic Reformation style.
I’m also teetering dangerously on the edge of ordering a pair of Birks if you can believe it. These in the metallic copper are incredible. Imagine with this muu muu. WHAT. It’d be like a whole new (boho-chic) me. I need to sleep on the look for a day or two before I take the plunge, as its so wildly out of my comfort zone! (More on the modern muu muu look here.)
P.P.S. The absolute best cosmetics.
P.P.P.S. An epic $8 fashion buy.
