love of the day – the maxi dress + leather combo

fashion, love of the day

My love of leather jackets is well documented (check here), and I am really into the combination of a cropped leather over a long, glam maxi skirt or dress. It’s a great contrast. I also love that it hints at it being Spring at some point in the near future (hurry up already!)

love of the day: the phillip lim 31 hour bag

fashion, love of the day

This bag personifies simplicity as beauty at its best, as Phillip Lim does so well. This beautiful leather bag is meant to carry you throughout your day and then some, holding your entire life in one chic bag.

Originally introduced in solids, the colorblocks are fun because the zip top can be flipped back and forth- black on tan one day, and tan on black the next. My color crush? Navy, which I think will be awesome against neutrals and brighter colors going into Spring.

the screen tee makes a come back

fashion, love of the day

The screen tee has made a come-back, made possible by the statement necklace. Much more chic and understated, the graphic statement and logo tee is once again being put under blazers, tucked into skirts, and layered under luxurious furs and leathers.

Not for the lazy, you are going to need some serious jewelry and beautiful shoes to carry this off without looking like a grad student.

wildfox resort 2012 lookbook

fashion, lookbooks

I always appreciate a well done look book that captures the feeling of a brand, and the ladies at Wildfox do it extremely well. I am not a huge fan of screen tees, but I do admire the laid back yet glamorous California lifestyle that they capture so well every season.

I felt like I had just baked in the luxurious hot sun on an amazing Palm Spring weekend trip and then come back to the hotel and passed out in my huge fluffy bed…

Wildfox has a really great blog featuring their inspirations and favorite things @ http://ilovewildfox.com/
