OOTW: Lemon Drop

Jesse L. Brooks

 

The first day of Spring lands this weekend, and that has us in the mood for some fresh and fabulous fashion! When we think of Spring, we automatically picture beautiful blooms, sunny days and fresh fruits and veggies. That's why we were so inspired by the star of this week's look. 

Transport yourself to Sicilian gardens with this blue dress from Oscar de la Renta, which features their "Citrus Primavera" pattern. It's made from a blended compact knit featuring smooth silk and stretch fibers, resulting in a flattering fit-and-flare silhouette. 

Since this look is all about our love of lemons, we stuck with that theme throughout the accessories, starting with Victoria Beckham's "Anna" leather sandals in a fresh-squeezed shade of sunny yellow. Then we "juiced" up our look a little more with Serpui Marie's lemon-shaped wicker bag.

These lemon wedge diamond and sapphire stud earrings by Sydney Evan are too sweet. For some mani/pedi game, we opted for a mellow yellow shade by Ella + Mila. The color instantly reminded us of sipping on a yummy Limoncello on a scenic balcony in Rome. 

With every passing day, we grow a little closer to "normalcy" again, so we see no harm in planning our future outfits. The great thing about this "Lemon Drop" fantasy is it can be worn to the races at Keeneland or on an upcoming holiday once it's fully safe to travel again.
