In the Fade

Jesse L Brooks


Let's face it, with the weather here in Kentucky bouncing from winter to spring again and again, pretty much anything goes these days when choosing what to wear. But two things we always are down for is a pretty color palette and a flowy dress. This airy design from Cult Gaia reminds us of a dreamy sunset with a colorful ombré fading effect. It features bunched balloon sleeves in a tie-dyed pattern with a banded waist to define your shape. Making sure to tie in all of the lovely hues found on the dress, we kept accessories complementary without getting too matchy-matchy. These elegant Rockstud Alcove pumps from Valentino Garavani ooze class and sophistication. They're made from white leather with slender ankle straps and 85mm heels, displaying the label's pyramidal studs carved into monogram hardware. Getting green with our bag, we opted for this lovely olive piece by YSL. Casually elegant in true Saint Laurent fashion, the Le 5 À 7 bag is a window into the label’s impeccable archive. Its softly structured leather profile rests nonchalantly across the shoulder, exuding a healthy dose of the fuss free attitude. When it came to jewelry we wanted something simple, yet still striking enough to catch the light. Ross-Simons' cultured pearl and citrine drop earrings are a chic, yet playful pair that lend the perfect amount glamour to our stylish look. Wrapping things up with a beautiful splash of deep mauve is Rare Beauty's Stay Vulnerable Lip Balm. This ultra-cushiony, comfortable formula hugs lips with nourishing hydration while visibly plumping them with buildable color and shine. Whether it's a chilly day or one filled with warmth, in this outfit you will be "In The Fade" and ready for any kind of weather - rain or shine!
