Ladies Who Lunch

Monday, July 16, 2012 126 0

Cardigan: BP via Nordstrom. Dress: H&M. Handbag: J.Crew Edie Bag. Shoes: Boutique 9. Belt: H&M. Watch: Michael Kors. Necklaces: Forever 21. Bracelet: Henri Bendel. Ring: Kate Spade. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Feeling very “ladies who lunch” in this full-on lilac monochromatic outfit. Β My inspiration came from my new J.Crew purse, which I finally purchased in NYC after I had been eyeing it for months.Β  I just love the gorgeous lavender hue and classic boxy shape. Β Would you wear a monochromatic look like this?

      Thanks Megan! It’s actually two of the same necklace paired together. I wanted a chunky pearl necklace, but couldn’t find one, so I just bought 2!

    I am totally loving everything lilac! It’s so feminine and sophisticated. That bag is totally perfect. I think this might be my favorite look of yours!

    Also – what nail polish are you wearing?

    • Jenny
      July 16, 2012

      Thanks so much Miranda! I’m wearing Rimmel London. It’s called Steel Grey, but it’s a heather purple shade. I had been looking for a pretty purple shade for quite sometime but couldn’t find one in my go to brands (OPI, Essie). I’ve never purchased Rimmel before, but it was on sale at the drug store for $2 and the colour looked really pretty, so I thought I would give it a try. I actually like it a lot. The brush is wide and flat, and the polish goes on very nicely. The colour seems to last a while too.

      • Miranda
        July 17, 2012

        Ooh, I’ve never bought Rimmel either so maybe I’ll have to try that. I have Sally Hansen complete salon manicure in greige gardens that is a really similar shade. Thanks Jenn!

    I definitely do love a monochromatic look! The dress is beautiful, I don’t think I’ve seen that at our local H&M. The bag is stunning too, I am glad you were able to get it, since J. Crew bags move rather quickly!
