A patriotic start

TWR A Patriotic Start Summer 2017

The 4th of July is just 10 days away.  Start prepping for the patriotic holiday now with shades of red, white and blue.  Today’s look is perfect for the beach and out to drinks after.  It’s playful, vibrant and festive.  I love creating a patriotic look without necessarily needing to be wearing a flag.  Then, you’re red, white and blue pieces can be worn all year round without looking like you’re still celebrating the holiday.  Happy 4th of July shopping this weekend.

Where will you be celebrating the 4th of July?

The local tourist

TWR The Local Tourist-6

That’s a wrap!  Over the past week and a half, my parents were visiting from California.  This was a guaranteed moment where I’d be playing tourists in my own town.  We had the opportunity to explore the must-sees in DC — like the White House, memorials and museums — and even took a moment to leave town exploring Northern Virginia, Annapolis and Philadelphia.  Here’s a quick flash back to the week and some style choices for the long walks and humid temps.

Where’s a must-see place on your DC travel list?

Neil Barrett

TWR Neil Barrett Spring 2017 1

Ready, set, Spring!  In the world of menswear, we’re moving swiftly through Spring 2017 runway shows.  For next spring, Neil Barrett‘s collection is one to note.  Nearly each look is saturated in rich brown hues, a soft pop of blue or orange accents.  I love the retro vibe this sporty collection has with it’s styling, geometrical prints and cropped hemlines.  The man wearing this collection is confident in his personal style and isn’t conforming to fast-fashion trends. Check out Barrett’s collection and more to come from Spring 2017 menswear, next Wednesday.

Which look is your favorite?

Antonio Berardi

TWR Antonio Berardi Resort 2017 3

Turning backs on the summer rain.  Antonio Berardi‘s Resort 2017 collection portrays my current mood perfectly — there’s just no time for rain and always time for cool fashion.  I love the playful silhouettes in this collection, with everything from bubbled out waistlines, asymmetrical hemlines to side-sweeping tails.  Each look is crisp, bold and eye catching.  The woman in Berardi’s looks has a statement to make, no words needed.  Sign me up for this statement-making look!

Elizabeth and James

TWR Elizabeth and James Resort 2017 1

Daytime essentials.  Elizabeth and James‘ Resort 2017 collection has an effortless vibe about it.  Their Mary-Kate and Ashely’s minimalistic-bohemian style reflected beautifully through the fabrics and silhouettes.  Off the shoulder necklines provided a stylish kick to formfitting ribbed dresses and tops.  I love the rich, clean color palette they chose — with cinnamon, crisp white and black options.  Sign me up for these minimalistic pieces.

Sweetly summer

TWR Sweetly summer 2016

More fruit print, please.  I adore fruit prints — pineapple print to be specific.  The playful print is unexpected and a change from a traditional striped, plaid, or polka dot look.  To avoid taking away from the pineapple print, I chose a solid tank with a playful frilled hem to pair with the pencil skirt.  The frilled hem acts as a peplum, playing off the straight silhouette.  To keep the look alive, I love how this colorful, neon-fringe necklace pops and compliments the skirt effortlessly.  Get your summer prints and color out and embrace the sunny days ahead!

What’s your favorite print for summer?

Pineapple Skirt: Milly
Frilled Hem Tank: Zara
