Hello from London, my loves! It’s cold and rainy here so I’m snuggled up with my laptop and trying to let these photos from last week’s Girls Who Lunch event hosted by bebe and Sydne Summer at Bouchon in Beverly Hills warm my soul (pots of hot tea are helping too!).
Here, what I wore to lunch with bebe & ideas on how to wear a bright blazer…
bebe had each of us select a favorite piece from their new spring collection to wear to the brunch. Once I laid my eyes on this coral blazer, the choice was easy.
I’ve really been into bright colors lately and also have the hots for florals, and luckily the two go hand in hand and are big trends for spring (then again, aren’t they always?). I paired my bebe coral blazer with this floral-print Finders Keepers skirt that the lovely folks at beauxx.com sent me. I love the more graphic vibe of these florals and the architectural cut of the skirt, which reads more Kelly Wearstler than Laura Ashley (sorry, England!). Speaking of England, this gold clutch from George, Gina & Lucy proved to be the ideal accent for my floral and coral ensemble. When in doubt, go for gold!
Nude shoes help lengthen legs and I like all the help I can get in that department.
When wearing a short skirt, I like to keep everything else covered up — especially at a ladies lunch — so this buttoned up Zara top did the trick. I added a statement necklace in white and gold from LOFT, a vintage bracelet from my mother-in-law, an initial ring from Gorgana, simple Julie Vos earrings, blue nails and a big sun hat.
That’s the floral and the coral of the story. See more pics from Girls Who Lunch on Instagram and see how all of the bloggers styled their bebe pieces on Sydne Style (it’s so fun — and inspiring — to see how the other bloggers made the pieces their own!). Do you have a favorite look?
