JCrew Summer Style

The Memorial Day episode of VPL on "Hello Style" also marked my debut as a stylist for Hearst! I wanted fun, bright colors & patterns as we talked about summer celebrations but also things that would be appropriate for the work parties we discussed. We all know I'm a fan of mixing patterns & this is a great example of how to pull that off.

Both Hank & I have one bold print & one smaller one. My polka dot pants are a lot, but the striped top is simple, while the anchors on his shorts are so small that they almost make the bottoms just a neutral.

And of course, the loves of my life, boat shoes for both men & women.
