Hey There Pretty Birds,
Just in time for the first sunny day in Milan in about a week, here’s my newest personal- style post. For this week’s look, I threw together some of my current favorite pieces that I love individually, but never thought of wearing together. Until, yesterday that is.
The outfit idea came to me yesterday after seeing the embroidered jacket and trousers hanging together in our laundry room. I thought to myself, hmm this could work nicely and brought the look out to show our interns Nico and Giulia. To my vain delight, they gave their immediate approval! I get such a kick when the younger generation understands my style choices (lol). I had initially planned on white shoes, but they just looked too predictable considering my current obsession with white. So I opted for red, and I’m loving the pop of color. I grabbed my classic navy coat and this houndstooth scarf as Nico and I were leaving my apartment to shoot the look. I would have loved to take some pictures without the coat to show you more of the jacket, but I had a horrible sore throat last week and I’m not trying to go there again. Need to be strong and healthy for fashion month… And voilà, that is how I came up with my look of the week.
Details: I found the embroidered jacket at a Market in Mauritius for spectacular price (thank god for my husband’s negotiation skills, he is an arbitration attorney after all). I fell in love with these fancy athletic trousers at the Tory Burch showroom here in Milan. I was so surprised when Tory sent me them for Christmas last year. Thanks lovely. My coat is by Zara. My zippered booties are by Acne. I just got them on sale! Yes! My t-shirt is by Cos, my scarf by Helena Ruuth and my sunglasses by Etnia Barcelona.
Let me know what you think of the look. How would you have styled it? xx, Tamu
