DARE TO WEAR: Orange Crush
Almost exactly a year ago, we posted about a Resort and F/W 2010 trend we were obsessed with — a fun, bold orange — and we’re happy to report that the color is still alive and kicking. Except now instead of ready-to-wear, we’ve found it in even more relatable and wearable separates, courtesy (of course) of the always-on-the-pulse J.Crew.
One of their favorite S/S 2011 looks, they’ve taken both the monochromatic and bright color trends and made them so effortlessly cool, and best yet, it’s super easy to make all yours. To shop all four pieces together, visit their site here.
- Tippi sweater / $70
- 5” chino short / $33
- Marlow hobo / $298
- Alexander lace-up booties / $130
See you soon!
Happy almost 4th of July stylestalkers! Just a quick note to let you know that we’ll be on a short hiatus next week as we head out for much-needed vacation time. For one of us, it’s a romantic weeklong trip to two of the most beautiful cities in the world, Amsterdam and Paris; and for the other, a quick getaway to see the bright and picturesque landscapes of an Alaskan summer.
Here’s wishing you all a great Holiday weekend :)

HOW TO WEAR IT: Whites @ Work
Inspired by our chic workwear guru Anh of 9to5Chic, we started thinking about the perfect summer outfits for the office — and given with our recent obsession with light-colored neutrals, the concept of whites at work was the perfect combination of what we’re dying to wear right now. One of our favorite French labels Carven really did this trend justice with their SS2011 cotton, crepe, and silk separates, spun up in the absolute perfect shade of creamy white — with substantial silhouettes that fit amazingly well and really make an outfit feel noticeably special.
We love the idea of investing in these three key pieces (a skirt, blazer, and cropped pant — now on sale, thanks to NET-A-PORTER!) and mixing and matching them all season long with other key outfitting items. Some of our suggestions include a simple silk blouse, nude leather sandals and totes, and delicate gold accessories, like this classic menswear-inspired watch.
