In the Mood For: Spring Wi$hli$t

Leandra Medine | April 14, 2011
 bustier: Mara Hoffman, shorts: Carven, shoes: Topshop, hat: Forever 21, blouse: Opening Ceremony 
I would toterly wear the above outfit to the beach, suede wedges et al. Actually I wouldn’t. The shorts are Carven, for one thing. And I am a firm believer that beach dress-code decorum should express that bathing suits and bathing suits only are permitted on sandy grounds. That said this is still a prime example of the shit, weird shit you can find me rollerblading in on any given day. The Opening Ceremony blouse at right is super sheer so instead of rocking exposed nipples, why not rock a multi-colored bustier a la Mara Hoffman? Though I should note, should you want to rock those nipples, you should go ahead. I’m not trying to hinder any creativity here.
Below, find more from the $pring wi$hli$t of my $oul
 Something green. Kermit is very right now. $123 at Pixie Market
I suppose this Miu Miu mini skirt will do as well. $640 at Net-A-Porter
Chic organza shorts because though I love denim, its growing tired. As is linen. As is traditional silk. Bonus points for the bowner and fancy factor. Wear these to brunch with your in-laws. In-laws? $238 at Pixie Market
Or you can follow my lead and get a similar pair by Hy&Dot.; They offer fun print mixing capabilities and have an air of sleek Jill Stuart about them. $80 at Shop Nasty Gal 
You will obviously need a blouse for your in-law shorts. How’s’a’bout a cropped, pleated, silk one? It’s like a shirt after my own heart. And here’s the punch: at only $44. Eureka! (Mikkat Market)
I for one, would prefer nothing more than to finish off any look from the lookbook of my life of with these Acne wedges. Those nutty professors do no wrong by me. $700 at La Garconne
And finally, to shield your eyeballs from the sun, or to wear while in doors in order to properly depict the confessions of a Douche Bag:
Karen Walker eyewear. There is no other way. $210 at Gargyle
