Bits and Pieces: Patterns In The Tropics

| , , , , ,

It pains me just a little to write this post, since I am now back from vacation and seeing these photos is like a punch to the gut. TAKE ME BACK!!!! If you didn’t know, I recently went to Grand Cayman for a few days and it was delightful. We swam with sting rays, snorkeled the Barrier Reef, ate more than we should and lounged on the beach every single day. It was glorious. But I have to say that my favorite part of visiting warm weather vacation spots is the chance to wear every brightly colored item in my wardrobe. I recently purchased this DVF skirt and felt it was perfect for my trip. I wore it to dinner on an island that required transportation by boat and it was so comfortable and easy. Lightweight enough to keep me cool but heavy enough so as not to succumb to a wardrobe malfunction from all the wind on the boat. And of course these sandals look familiar because they have been a staple in my summer wardrobe since I bought them last year, and I am slowly collecting as many pairs of Loeffler Randall shoes as I can! I have this pair as well and love them! But the only thing they can’t do is transport me back to Grand Cayman if I click my heels together. Ugh, reality is so harsh.

Bits and Pieces: Lounge Pants

| , , , , , ,

First it was boyfriend jeans, now lounge pants. Lounge pants that you can wear outside of your actual lounge – brilliant. I have been eying this style of pants for a long time and wasn’t sure I would really like them once on. Update: I really like them once on. In fact, I LOVE them. So comfortable yet quite stylish if you ask me (you didn’t but it’s my blog so I ask and answer questions). And while I am on the fence about the crop top trend, I felt the high waist needed something shorter on top rather than longer. So I tied up my chambray top and it was the perfect complement. I know mixing patterns is a mystery for many, but I find that shoes and purses are the best way to mix without going overboard. Floral on my feet and leopard in my hands is the perfect combination. Oh and one more thing – you need this Clare Vivier leopard clutch. Not too big and not too small, I fear for everyone around me for how often they will see me wear it. Guess I’ll go ahead and apologize now.
