Continuing the all-blue trend as of late on THP, I decided to do a classic outfit combination: blue shirt, leather pants, simple clutch. C’est trés chic, non? But as with me, nothing is ever that simple. Notice the slight twist of the buttons on the top (no it’s not an optical illusion); rather, a clever re-tailoring of a classic shirt. How bloody clever! And to take this from mere pedestrian to something a little more, I added the perfect pair of  ‘Nudist’ heels from my friends at Stuart Weitzman.

blue’s clues

So not so subtle is my new love for anything blue. I've worn it consistently over the last six months in whole outfits as well as solo in mixed patterns. But what I love most are blue accessories (hello! my little mini Proenza Schouler PS11!) I recently discovered Nancy Gonzalez on Moda Operandi where she is currently holding a trunk show. Her bags: exotic and furry and very, very colorful. Very luxe and eye fetching. I want--no SCRATCH THAT--I DREAM about the mink shoulder bag top left hand corner. Oh yes, you will be mine....yes...

I received this uh-maze-n leather ‘tarzan’ crop from Friend of Mine last year (but in the dead of winter) so it got no wear until just a few days ago. The fit is perfect and the back–best part in my opinion. It’s a single piece that looks like a bib when laid flat, but on! So good. Make sure to check out the rest of this Aussie brand, one of my all-time faves for easy, modern pieces. Skip through to find out where the shorts + shoes are from.

Geometrics

Never been a fan of geometry but loving anything geometric right now. I really love the mix of colors on this knit–totally screams summer to me. Can’t wait to pair it with my favorite cut offs and a pair of pearly white slip-ons (hello summer uniform). And this bag–so CRAY! I call it my mattress purse because of the tucking and general resemblance. This purse is also an attempt to curb my enthusiasm/tendency for all-black accessories…let’s see how long it’ll last, but I say valiant first stab!
