The blockstep print on this sweater is such a fun combination of colors to style up with a classic navy, flirty skirt (last seenhere). I've found that I don't wear many tops with trendy prints on them mainly out of worry that they'll go out of style pretty quickly, but what's great about this find is that no matter how often I fashion this throughout the year the colors will keep any look exciting.
When I shop for quality pieces there are a few key things I look for: unique details, comfortable wear, and transitional color. This dress from PERIDOT by Hana Mijwel hit those checkpoints for me. I love the bias cut for a little lengthening, the ruching from the front and back gathered on the hip is so flattering, and the way this material just moves with me makes it all-day wearable. There are many other details I'm in love with that I'm sure you can notice for yourself (especially the amazing cut of the back). This sand color is beautiful for Summer and to layer up on the neutral palette I paired it with an ivory blazer for daytime, and without the blazer it makes for a perfect cocktail dress.
I am excited to announce that PERIDOT by Hana Mijwel is offering an exclusive 30% off discount for 'LoSo Fancy' readers! The duo behind the brand are an amazingly talented team of young ladies/emerging designers who design luxury womenswear internationally between Lebanon, Italy, and NYC. I personally love that their mission is to design trendy yet timeless pieces for the confident woman because if you feel confident, you look confident... and that's a fact!
I also want to share some snapshots from the beautiful home of a sweet friend who let us do this photoshoot in her classic sea captain's home in Barrington, RI. I'm not sure if any further description of it can do it justice for it's true beauty (she has such a good eye for interior design), but here are some snapshots through my eyes...
Just a quick post today to show you how to dress up a simple pair of shorts with a boyfriend blazer for a breezy date night - a perfect pairing for those cool Summer nights when you still want to look as cute as possible. Thanks so much for reading!
I'm still speechless over how much I love this dress and I don't think there is much I can/need to say about why this print in this style is appropriate for the upcoming season. But I can positively say that I foresee this being worn on repeat for the majority of the Summer.
With warmer weather on it's way I've become a big fan of all things linen. This look is easy for the office setting - just wear the blazer to and from work and fashion the linen button down for running the office errands. It's a lightweight and breathable piece that's also perfect as a casual layer over a sundress or paired with denim shorts for the weekend.
I cannot get enough of this sweater. Incredibly comfortable, lightweight, and easy to wear with anything. I styled it with this skirt to add some feminine flare to the men's inspired baseball tee but still keep it casually cool with my Converses. They're my first and only pair of Chucks I own and I've had them since college so they've been through quite a bit, but I hope I never have to replace them. Also, let me just mention how obsessed I am with this yellow straw baseball cap. It fits my head so comfortably that I wish I could wear it everyday, if only my work attire allowed for it. I'll stick to sporting it mainly on the weekends.
