Good Morning friends!
Ah,, finally Spring may be upon us! It is later this year than last, as I usually love sitting on our deck outside in the morning, working on the blog and enjoying some fresh roasted coffee and fruit. Our weekend was so fun, as we went to a new farm to table restaurant in Charlotte’s Mint Museum before seeing the Wynton Marsallis Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra concert. They played pieces by Thelnonius Monk, his style being angular and dissonant in many pieces. Monk also composed many jazz standards, which are my favorites to listen to. Each member of the Jazz Orchestra has such an impressive background, many coming from Julliard School of Music.Today, however, i thought I would put together my composition that epitomizes Spring and Summer to me, an all white monochromatic look from Joan Vass.
I have shared a look from Joan Vass last winter, in this post Leopard Shift Dress by Joan Vass, and had the chance to collaborate again. It was quite funny how it came to be! One of my pictures, that Mary Grace took, my Jambu friend and contact, of me in Times Square giving the peace sign and sporting my comfy shoes, was seen by someone from Joan Vass’ company. He messaged me on Facebook and asked if I was going to be in NYC, that his company would want to discuss a collaboration. I messaged back, to find out he was from Joan Vass! I told him I had worked with them previously, but would collaborate again 🙂 and so it was… Funny how it came to fruition!
Joan Vass clothing has contemporary looks for women. Easy and fresh maxi dresses in red and black with a hankercheif hem, shift dresses in bright colors and tunics are all part of the collection for Spring 2018,
I chose this white knit tunic, with detailing at the neckline, and wanted to pair it with a pair of white trousers or jeans. I chose the slim white denim jeans and decided to add some gold accents with this natural look. With this white ensemble, I am wearing gold drop earrings, a textured white necklace by Ann Taylor and my gold espadrilles by Franco Sarto. The gold threading in the espadrilles in picked up in the sun . I added my favorite bag by Brahmin, the Melbourne in Pecan for added rich color and texture. I can also style this tunic over a dress or wear it with a skirt for a different look. I am a fan of wearing a slim or straight pant with a longer tunic,
For reference, I am wearing the sweater in a 0 ( size 4 in jv) and the jeans in a 0 ( size 4)
Do check out Joan Vass for her Spring collection.
