Springtime Stripes

_MG_7966I 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!

_MG_7970_MG_8105_MG_8137Jacket: 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 ; )

_MG_8236_MG_8284_MG_8247_MG_8198I love that these stripes serve as a neutral and I can pair almost anything in my closet with them; jeans, these black crepe joggers and a leather jacket, or even a girlie skirt.

_MG_8290_MG_8307A 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!

 

Coffee Run

Believe it or not, these photos were taken just over a week ago when we  were still wearing winter coats here in New York! Most mornings, I make coffee at home and drink it on the couch in PJ’s with my computer in my lap and my pup cuddled up next to me, but this… View This Post

Welcome to Charlebois Chic!

Hi there! My name is Catherine Charlebois, and I am a long-time lover of all things chic; I had a bow in my hair from the time my curls were long enough and fell in love with Audrey Hepburn the first time I saw MY FAIR LADY. I am also a Broadway actress and mommy… View This Post
