The other morning on my way to work, I was walking to the subway wearing one of my favorite color combinations: White and Navy. Made even better by the fact that I paired it with gold. White jeans, navy v-neck, gold sandals, and a gigantic gold necklace. Topped off with my gold rimmed ray-bans. Obviously.
As I was crossing a very busy 2nd Avenue at 68th Street, I noticed three women around me wearing the same colors! The 1st was wearing a white and navy striped shirt tucked into a dangerously tight white pencil skirt, held in place by a gold belt. To my right, the 2nd woman was strutting her stuff in an adorable white ruffled shirt dress, gold sandals, and a navy and gold bag. To my left, the 3rd woman was wearing navy pants, a crisp white button down, and, you guessed it, a gold belt. Everyone copied me!
That, or this color combo is hugely popular right now…
It’s popping up everywhere, especially in stripes. Early this spring, I bought a classic St. James shirt, pictured above. I had been looking for one for forever, and it finally manifested itself at the Madewell store in Soho. St. James clothing was originally made for deep sea fishman in France in the 1800s out of pure wool and cotton. The company still uses the highest quality cotton for it’s clothing, and has, luckily for us, made it’s way over to our corner of the world. The fabric is thick and soft, warm and cool at the same time. Basically magic. Now J.Crew is selling a few different versions of it and it’s EVERYWHERE. I can’t wait to wear it on an actual sail boat this summer!
