What should I wear//BLOUSE + SHORTS + CLUTCH


A welcome to spring--the contrast and pairing of the nude and the blue hues--I love it. I've always had a dream of pairing a simple, finely tailored blouse with a lovely printed short. I like the idea of a statement necklace somewhere in the mix too. and who can go wrong with a nice, envelope clutch? I need one.

5 - Cacharel


Mix of denim, black leather, and metal, in a fine way. I like the chambray with the neckbow and pleats paired with the high waisted leather shorts. Paired with a great clutch by Coach's designer Krakoff (a resemblance of a belt there, awesome!), even better ankle boots, and a studded cuff--it all comes together smoothly.

4 - Acne
5 - IRO

The prepster hits the streets of Paris in this outfit. The crisp collared shirt, with the extra hint of black on the cuffs, pairs nicely with some high waisted suede shorts. I love the idea of a ballet flat that actually looks like a point shoe (awesome square toe with the ankle straps) and the iconic designer quilted clutch (convertible to handbag!) and bangle.
1 - Chloe
2 - Hermes
3 - Chanel
4 - Chloe
5 - Topshop



Modernize and minimal-ize with a two tone color scheme, and strict silhouettes--nothing more except a hint of silver in the lining of the shoe and that epic silver cuff by japanese designer Akaya Nishi (so artistic, creative... I can't handle it!). Straight lines and smooth curves complete the look--+++look at the engraving/embossing on that clutch!
