OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: EMERALD CITY

By Jesse L. Brooks

 

Blame it on these 80 degree days, but we are all about bringing out the bold colors of spring and summer. That is why this week's look is all about capturing the casual, airy vibrancy of April weather. We kicked things off with a pleated multi-colored blouse by Sacai. Swirls of bright shades like orange, green, pink, and yellow all work together to create one eye-catching design. Focusing in on that pretty pop of hot pink, we wanted our pants to make a statement. Virgin wool slim-fit trousers by Cédric Charlier offer a flattering, comfortable fit, which perfectly complements our colorful top. Taking this look a little bit towards tropical, baby pink leather pineapple patch toe sandals from Dolce & Gabbana are like a party on your feet. Designed with gold-tone stud detailing, tassel wrap around laces, a tie fastening, and a pinapple toe patch, these shoes are in a word...delicious! Now to make bag lovers want to take a trip to 'Emerald City', comes a splash of Gucci. The brand's mini chain bag is a perfect fit for those days you don't feel like lugging around a huge, heavy purse. Keeping our jewelry full of color and personality, Aurélie Bidermann's 'Sioux' bracelet is inspired by Native American art. Handmade in France, this gold-plated piece is threaded with vivid pink and marble effect stone beads with green tassels. Making sure to incorporate some beauty into this look, we zeroed in on our nails. Open-toed shoes always call for a pretty pedi afterall. Jin Soon's high gloss 'Charme' nail lacquer boasts a chip-proof finish and rapid drying time. Not to mention it helps pull out those hints of yellow throughout our ensemble. Since this is a daytime look, a pair of fabulous sunnies is naturally in order. Tom Ford's 'Eva' sunglasses have a lightweight rose, gold-tone metal frame, with a sleek aviator style.  This look could be worn to a laid back lunch with the girls, or even to a fun day at Keeneland. No matter where you go, you'll leave everyone who crosses your path green with envy.
