Honestly, I know what you are thinking and you are right. How can anyone working on a hot summer Friday wear anything but a breezy striped cropped caftan, white jeans, turquoise blue color-of-the-sea open-toe platforms, paired with minimal simple accessories? I don’t know the answer, but if you stump me, you win a goldfish hand caught by me.
What you see here is a case of casual Fridays, if your Friday’s include
jumping on the quickest train out of-town casual dressing with a modern and fresh twist. Comfort, you see, is the key. The fashion hunter must have had it right all along. Check out the ‘spinal’ embellishment on the neckline. Aligned so straight. Cut to the close-up, here we go.
If this caftan does not look familiar to you, you are right again, it is a new piece that I
stole borrowed from 100% ny – a tightly edited line that launched 2 seasons ago, which features practicality, comfort, and eco-chic durability. The coolest thing about the line is that they reuse all their fabrics so that the bare minimal goes to waste. Their tag-line? 100% chic, 0% waste. Based entirely in New York, that’s an eco-friendly brand I can get behind. Now look behind me, how can the cleverly painted artistic graffiti rendering on the wall be more perfect with my outfit? It was then I proceeded to lean on the wall, and belly laugh at the random silliness of it all. And here it is live.
So for those of you getting a head start on your weekend, enjoy the moment, and don’t forget to laugh once in a while. Do you like my blue toes?
And as always, Clickety-Click for all these looks: 100% NY top, Paige Denim Skyline Skinny jeans, Brian Atwood suede espadrilles wedges, Maison Martin Margiela leather cuff, Pono white bracelet, Alexander McQueen sunnies.
Happy weekend and if you happen to be in the Hamptons, be sure to stop by Blue and Cream. Tell them the fashion hunter sent you for a free Lamptons tee shirt. Yes, a freebie. Good till Sunday. That’s all I have for now. Time to sit back enjoy the simple pleasures of summer. Beer by Brooklyn Brewery. Won’t you join in on the fun? That homemade salad and cold brewsky is awaiting. Cheers! xxoo
