The Village Vogue - Helmut Lang Crop TopHappy August people! I am still adjusting to/coming to terms with the knowledge that June AND July are both over. I mean, come on, how did that happen so quickly!? The light speed passage of summer’s first two months has inspired me to make a vow to myself to appreciate and savor every last bit (summer ale happy hour/mint chip ice cream cone/beach bonfire/salty air hair/tan-lines/you get the picture) of what is left of summer 2104. Who’s with me?

Ok: enough nostalgia – let’s talk about this look. Overalls are a trend that I never ever want to go away. I live in them, and I’m pretty happy with it. First off, they can be worn a gazzillion different ways (over a cashmere turtleneck in cooler weather, with a super chic crop top as shown above, over or under a worn in chambray shirt – this particular combo has given me a whole new appreciation for the Canadian tuxedo, with a simple tee and a fab flannel tied around the waist, I could go on and on). And this Helmut Lang crop top is a go to – I got it in both black and white and seem to live in them.

The pearl jewelry trend is one that I have jumped on board with wholeheartedly. I love the fresh (no pun intended) and edgy take on such an intrinsically classic element. These pearl pieces: the pearl choker, the double pearl stud earrings and the pearl ring have worked their way into my jewelry routine in a big way. I have a few other pretty fantastic pearl pieces that are right alongside them in constant rotation – I am for sure on the pearl bandwagon.

Hope that everyone has a fab Sunday – let’s show Monday who’s boss!
