Late May Look of the Day
May 20, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
We're getting just beyond transition time - it's May 20th and almost the End Of The World. We're getting restless and reckless and damn close to busting out our summer clothes and just throwing a jacket on top. Well, you know what? Go for it. If we've only got one day left, hell, even if we don't, bring on your new warm weather purchases. A few extra layers (and some neutral colors) will make it work right now.
(In order of appearance to me)
High Waist Native Shorts | Pendelton Meets Opening Ceremony
Here the outfit began, a tall cut flounce short with an old time print.
Loose Knit Crop Top | Wool and the Gang
Hand-knit by Peruvian women, this cotton crop breathes and fits the high waist proportion.
Striped Blazer | Topshop
Make it work aprop with a sport jacket, and make the Man Repeller proud of your pattern smashing.
Lace Bike Shorts | I Still Love You
These will be your new essential. Safety shorts with subtle pizzazz.
Thigh Rise Knit Socks | Pendelton Meets Opening Ceremony
With light patterned details in the knits (think horseshoes and snakeskin), these'll give you added warmth for a light chill.
Rounded Salmon Frames | Cacharel
Even on a rainy day, it's good to be optimistic.
Box Stitch Braid Ribbon | 3.1 Philip Lim
Match the native print with a lanyard stitch from your childhood (or maybe just mine?).
Jaded Rock Ring | Kenneth Jay Lane
The jade stands alone emboldened by the salmon surrounding it.
Wicker Flap Satchel | Stella McCartney
This only works for work if you don't need to bring your own computer. (AKA I can't wear this to work)
Wood Wedge Nude Bootie | Maury and Eve
