The British Are Coming!!!

 

 

Yes, they are!!! Feeling a bit like Kate and Wills might be following in my footsteps while heading to The Carlyle this weekend! It was there that I did a photo shoot for today’s blog post. I think my wardrobe choice is spot on and perhaps Kate might agree! This vintage Chanel suit is a classic in pastel colors including mint green, pink, and yellow. The jacket has ¾ sleeves and is adorned with brass buttons that are decorated with the Chanel logo and cherubs. The jacket has removable silk cuffs in mint green and pockets detailing on the sides. The simple skirt has a double button closure at the waistband and is an elegant wrap style. This is truly my dream Chanel suit. It is youthful both in style and color. These suits are not just for the more mature Grande Dames of the Upper East Side! As a side note, several passed as we were shooting and stopped to chat. They had great appreciation for my OOTD! (Certainly not using the acronym!)  Having a little fun, not wanting to wear a fascinator (I am certain I could not pull that one off), I found the perfect headband at Zitomer on Madison Ave. It is possibly the best pharmacy in the land and across the pond! This perfect, pink headband with a large side bow is just the look I wanted. It is dressier than a headband and not as dramatic as a fascinator! I will leave that one to Her Majesty. I carried a vintage, oversized, crocodile, fold-over clutch in dark green and chose a pair of classic nude pumps. In Honor of The Royals visit, I hope you enjoy today’s post!! XO, B
