Ikat and About

There are so many pretty and inspiring walls in Venice.  My mom and I found a bunch of cool ones a few weeks ago.  I featured this J. Crew Ikat blouse in my Ikat in the Dining Room post.  I decided it needed to be shown outside with white denim.  These were such fun backdrops and I added a Parker Thatch sequined clutch.

Stripes, Embroidery and Cars

Father’s Day was all about cars this year.  We headed to Beverly Hills to the Rodeo Drive Concours D’Elegance in the blazing heat to see a very diverse collection of cars much to the delight of both father and son.  I was happy to have a breezy dress and hat to wear in the near 100 degree heat. The dress is the second dress I picked up on my recent birthday shopping trip to Calypso. I love that it combines my favorite blue and white stripes with embroidery. It happened to match a beautiful blue Bugatti that was in the show.   I also brought along my new summer tote from Parker Thatch.  It is the perfect size and has an internal zip top, so it is perfect for travel.  The sequins and navy pom are fun.  There are other pom color choices.IMG_6530IMG_6536IMG_6535

Yellow Leopard

I love leopard is obviously an understatement for me.  When I saw this yellow leopard bracelet,  I instantly loved it.  I thought about for a few weeks.  I am trying to shop my closet these days and only buy what I really love.  I don’t mind spending on things I wear over and over again.  The worst is when you get caught up in the new styles and don’t wear something very often.  This bracelet stuck with me and once I bought it, I wore it right away (a good sign).    It is such a great pop of color and great nod to the Cartier Panthere bracelet without being a knockoff.  It’s fun and easy to wear.  I am styling it with one of my favorite shirts from J. Crew from last year (that I was thrilled to see again this year in the recent roll out), my favorite white jeans, and statement flats with pom-poms.  The shoes are sold out, but J. Crew has a lot of unique styles and colors in the latest roll out.

Stripes and Pom-poms

I was lucky enough to grab the pom-pom shoes from J. Crew when they first came out (they were online only).  I have seen them pop up a couple of times in the sale section.  It may be worth a little sale stalking.  I was wearing them last week and saw the long sleeve tee.  The shoes insisted I buy it.  I am styling the shoes and pom-pom striped tee with my cropped high rise lookout white jeans from J.Crew to show off the pom-poms as well as pair of lavender AG jeans that are on sale at Calypso
