Inspiration From Across the Pond

The inspiration for today’s post is a favorite designer of mine from across the pond, Burberry.  Burberry plaid is iconic and can be seen used in many ways.  It can be seen as a simple lining of a hooded garment, a contrasting pocket on a t-shirt or it can be used as an overall pattern as in a traditional kilt or even a cape.  No matter how it is used, it is always classic and simple.  Today I chose to wear such a classic women’s white blouse adorned with the Burberry trim peeking out from the lined placket, it is also used as a detail along the seam of the placket in a small welting down the front. I wear this shirt with so many things, but today I paired it with an easy but detailed pair of khaki linen shorts.  They are cuffed shorts in a longer length with a pleated waistband. They close with four covered buttons. All of these details, make them more of a dressy short.  I’m wearing vintage purple and gold earrings and a statement ring to keep the clean look.  I chose to carry a limited edition Burberry bag and am wearing Valentino flats.  I like this look because it is tailored, dressy and clean-looking. To Burberry I say, “Well done, you!”
