Long Weekend Look

Runaround Chic - Isabel Marant, Givenchy

Wouldn’t it be lovely if this Memorial Day weekend behaved properly? It’s supposedly the opening act of summer, yet rain and 60′ weather is forecast.  As I think back, it’s often dreary and cold on this holiday, the main reason I don’t pack up the gang and head to the Vineyard. I have not-so-fond memories of foul weather gear worn at the beach and huddling around the fireplace, all of us in shorts and flip flops, dreaming of warmer days ahead.

Ah well, an extra day with my family is still great. Both girls are crazed with finals, so maybe the rain is not such a bad thing.

White jeans are a bit ubiquitous, but like the Breton striped tee, they are a summer wardrobe staple. Although, I almost prefer white denim in winter with chunky fisherman knit sweaters, the look is fresh and unexpected. And the Isabel Marant top above is a chic alternative to the colorful, boldly printed tunic…

  • Oh the weather is so cold and miserable here, it’s like winter. Love that grey Theory sweatshirt & wish I’d seen it when I was in New York!

  • Perfect summer look! Would you do an earring or forego?

  • The sandals are Gucci and in the ‘shoe’ section of the shop and I would wear little gold hoops.

  • Oh God, London is cr@p weather too. Why is this happening all over the world? So depressing! I shall mostly be wearing cashmere and fur this weekend!

  • We didn’t go away this weekend either, it is cold again here in the Midwest.

  • seriously… boring. the isabel marant looks like Tory Burch of years past. Everything here is unexciting. the Givency bag is even out of date as the mechanics of that bag don’t really work.
    the sweatshirt is great, as are the sunglasses. but white jeans “ALL YEAR”? Really? NYC winter?

  • Came back from the winter in Florida…..yikes! Who ordered this weather?? Ah well, it makes for a perfect time to get the white jeans out and pair them with a summer sweater! And maybe my fun pearl earrings…..

  • I don’t often receive your posts…I have to search. Love your ideas and usually agree? I’m not tired of white jeans yet…just the laundering!
