Watering Not Necessary

 

I just love to find a perfect outfit! One that needs little accessorizing, is comfortable, looks great (stating the obvious) and can take you to a variety of places.  A surprise or unique detail in that outfit is a terrific bonus.  This romper by Ark and Co. has all that.  It is so easy to wear, the sleeves make it perfect to wear day in to a cooler evening and it is a flattering cut.  The bonus detail to this outfit is the heavily embroidered bouquet of flowers that cascades from each shoulder. This is such a great thought that makes this so different from a simple solid black romper. The embroidery itself is enough accessorizing if you just need to pull it on and go.  It is not so over powering though, so if you are feeling like throwing on a long necklace or a few bracelets, you will still look great and it will not be too much. I added Again with this piece, I had my choice of shoe style depending on where I was going. I wore a simple pair of Ferragamo sandals. I also carried a House of Harlow bag. It is big enough to fit a phone and lip gloss and a few other necessities. It isis the perfect size! What girl wouldn’t love an outfit that comes with not one, but two bouquets of flowers!!!!

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!”
