With the recent heat wave gripping the country we were feeling this hazy mix of hot and cool tones for this week’s color story. Even cool greens and blues get hyper-real in the early tint of the summer sun.
I have noticed a rising trend spanning multiple runway designers and retails stores lately, although I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it. Printed maxi dresses are fairly common but now we are seeing other ways of wearing head-to-toe print: rompers and tailored suits. Anytime I see a matching printed suit I can’t help but picture the fabulous elderly women I’ve seen at the grocery store, you know, the kind that wear leather driving gloves when they go into town. I’m not sure whether this printed pant-suit trend will catch on among my generation, but I’m kind of hoping it does. I want to be that little old lady wearing flamboyant, printed suits one day.
I don’t normally post on Saturdays, but with the phenomenal news out of New York last night I thought this was more than appropriate. I love Christopher Kane, rainbows, and the progression of civil rights.
This past weekend many of my D.C. friends participated in the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure event, raising money for a very good cause. So I thought it only fitting to start this week off with a little pink.
