I haven’t worn stripes in years. Especially horizontal stripes. I probably once heard that they weren’t flattering, so I ruled them off as a Never Wear item. Another thing I can rule under my, “I was young and foolish” list!
Jacket: Vince (color sold out, but loving it in this neutral for spring! Top: Heidi Merrick Drake Tee. Pants: Joie. Shoes: JCREW (old, similar here and a summer and budget friendly version). Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim. Lipstick: MAC Girl About Town. Left Hand Chain: Catbird Kitten Mitten.
I had heard about Heidi Merrick’s California-cool line after seeing a bunch of my favorite bloggers like Damsel in Dior and Could I Have That wearing her beautiful, laid back pieces so I had to investigate. Not only are her clothes versatile, wearable and feminine, but they are all proudly designed and manufactured locally to her Los Angeles studio. I love that! Oh. And this t-shirt is by far, my favorite in my closet. Unbelievably soft, drapes perfectly, and I grab it an embarrassing number of days every month. I guess it may be time to get it in another color ; )
A few other things I have been eyeing from her collection are another striped tee (you can never have too many of these!) a silk chiffon printed midi dress for a beach wedding or a picnic in the park, and this coral number with lovely detailing around the neck.
Hope you have a great Monday to kick of your week! Thank you so much for stopping by!
