Tsumori Chisato

Runway- Tsumori R 15

Today is the day!  My big brother is getting hitched!  Tsumori Chisato‘s Resort 2015 collection reminds me of the perfect wedding-worth style.  From floor length dresses to the perfect baby-doll bridesmaid look, the collection is playful and cool.  The textures and colors are intriguing.  I love a look that is both relaxed and playful, but still sexy.  The sheer fabrics provide the perfect touch of sex appeal without being over exposed.  Get playful with your weekend style.

Exploring Portland

Inspiration- Portland Style S 14

We’re just one day away until my brother’s big day, so I’m cruising the streets of Portland looking for a the perfect photo shoot stop.  Of course, a sweet hotel is the perfect place.  We headed into the Nines luxury hotel and started snapping some shots.  I love exploring a city but don’t like to wear tennis shoes and/or anything too athletic, it’s all about always having it together.  With that being said my romantic midi skirt was the perfect choice.  It’s comfortable, cute and realistic for a stroll through town.  I kept things neutral with black, tan and white.  Whatever you do this weekend, take a few extra moments to get out and explore a new place.

What’s your style for cruising around town?

Accessorizing your tie

His tie bar

I’ve recently started noticing playful tie bars on men throughout town.  Yes, there’s the standard silver or gold straight tie bar, but the more playful the better.  I chose a few tie and tie bar combinations that will give your simple style a refreshing touch.  Go for a light-colored, printed tie for summer.  To spruce up the look, wear a dark-colored tie bar into the mix.  When using a plain or textured tie, wear it with a printed tie bar.  It’s all about mixing the balance of color and prints in your accessories.

Which tie and tie bar combination is your style?

Eggplant Tie Bar: The Tie Bar
Light Camo Print Tie: Hugh & Crye
Plaid Tie Bar: The Tie Bar
Yellow Tie: Charvet

The wedding walk

Everything- Wedding Footwear S 14

As we’re just 3 days away from my brother’s “big day“, I’m looking down for inspiration.  As the bridal party walks the aisle, preparing the grand entrance for the bride, I’m thinking about our feet.  Let’s start with the bride, of course.  I love things that sparkle.  It’s her big day and there’s nothing that makes her feel more like Cinderella than a glittering heel.  Next up are the bridesmaids.  Depending on the dresses, I suggest going neutral.  Leave the pop of color and glittering feeties for the bride.  Last up are the men.  Let’s get sleek, simple and classy boys.  From the groom to his groomsmen, their feet should be uniform and effortlessly blend with their suits.  Now back to the countdown!

What’s your go-to shoe for a wedding?

Bride: Jimmy Choo
Bridesmaids: Steve Madden

Marga Weimans

Runway- Marga Weimans S 15

Sometimes you have to look beyond the practical and wearable side of fashion.  Marga Weiman‘s Spring 2015 collection is pushing the limits in a big way.  I love using textures and this collection feels like an over-sized display of textures and volume.  Reading beyond the obscure outfits, I envision boxy silhouettes, cut-outs and asymmetrical lines for next spring.  The cut-outs are so vivid and in a micro version would make for an awesome dress detail.  Why not get playful and let Marga Weiman push your creativity next spring.

Which fashion-forward look is your favorite?

Groomsman

Everything- Groomswoman S 14

Today, I’m hopping a flight to Oregon for my brother’s wedding-week.  I’m one of the groomsmen, so lucky me get’s to be a part of the bachelor party.  Let the festivities begin.  I’ll be blogging from Oregon all week, with wedding themes on-my-mind.  As I’m headed to the woods for a weekend with the boys, I’m thinking of pieces that are boyishly cute.  What better than a jumpsuit for a “chill”, rustic-bachelor-party kind of style.  To spice up the casual jumpsuit, I did a major play on metals.  From head-to-toe, I’m mixing metals and textures.  To polish off the rustically beautiful look, these army green-to-clear sunnies did the trick.  Channel your inner boyish style this weekend.  Tune into my instagram for some can’t-miss bachelor party pictures (@thewrittenrunway).
