It is interesting to see how designer brands with great heritage create new looks for each season. St. John is known for its traditional styles and easy to wear (and pack) light weight knitwear. When I saw this suit, I was drawn to the soft, delicate colors of powder blue and mocha. The pencil skirt and crop jacket felt modern and classic. It is a great investment piece that will endure for years to come.
I wanted to continue with this palette with the accessories. The Valentino Couture pearlized patent peep toe platform pumps with bow adornment in light taupe was the perfect choice for a neutral shoe. A little runway and trendy, but somehow it seems to work in a demure and delicate way. This gorgeous Gucci "New Bamboo" medium top handle bag made with vernice leather in the color soft rose is a wonderful updated twist on a iconic design. The pop of color adds just the right amount of interest. Constellation 18k gold vermeil ball necklace by Mija added a little quirkiness. Lastly, the two tone Balanciaga sunnies keep with the pastel shades.
